‘BTS’ of a ‘Model’s’ Life!
I am currently working on a little project. I took myself away from my everyday life as a Personal Trainer and Model to focus on something that I wanted to do to help people see that I am just your average woman. I am doing some VLOGS along the way so that you will get to see a real account of EVERYTHING that I’ve been doing on this page.
Until then, check out some of the antics and other fun I have got up to since I started modelling on this page!
Model Comps DONE & DUSTED!
On June 28th I coached four girls for their first Bikini Modelling Competition. The Girls brought home medals for every round! Gorgeous Georgia won First Place for her first ever comp and I was awarded with a Champion Trainers award for it! I am wrapt to be rewarded for all of the passion and effort behind the scenes that I put into coaching these girls in this way, but it was a clear and easy decision for me to hang up the coaches hat/certificate and walk away from that side of the fitness industry! Seeing other bully coaches, starved and dehydrated bodies, dark fake tans, fake lashes and fake hair everywhere I turn made me wonder what on earth I was doing there! It was an experience to learn from, but now I am more excited than ever to refocus on doing what I love most- getting down and dirty at BOOTCAMP!
The Logies Red Carpet
Let me just say that Michelle, the Commando and I were NOT up running BOOTCAMP at 5am the next morning after the Logies! Instead you could find me around that time yet to make my way home from the Chanel Seven Network After Party, pictured below singing into a Logie which I decided could double as a microphone!
BOOTCAMP BABE PHOTOSHOOT
I’m owning the Cam Glam BOOTCAMP Babe look in these BTS pics from a photoshoot with Mark Rogers for an International Magazine submission!
Arnold Classic Fitness Model Finalist
When I heard that the man himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, was coming to Australia to hold the very first Arnold Classic Fitness Expo Event here in our country I couldn’t help but get involved! I was wrapt to place within the top 10 Australian Fitness Models at the Arnies!
Fitness Model Interview
I may be getting a year older amongst all of these gorgeous 19-20 year olds, but I am still managing to get a bit closer to that Miss Summernats title every year! At 34 this year I moved up from my third place last year to SECOND place for 2015!
They called me the ‘Hottest Babe from the Bachelor!’
There was plenty of interest around my time in The Bachelor house in my search for LURVE… it turn’s out Blake Garvey wasn’t the one for me, however it was still a really exciting time, with stylists, hair and make-up departments dressing me for some very special Cocktail Parties every week! Check out some of the outfits they dressed me in here:
One day I walked in to the newsagent to find myself in 6 different magazines on the shelf, including a feature double page spread in WHO WEEKLY AND a FRONT COVER & POSTER in ZOO Magazine!
But I was excited to leave the house, get back into my own country girl gear, and go on a date with Tommy Little…well- it was a surprise after he asked Blake on ‘The Project’ show to pass his number on to any of the girls who he had to let go! 😉
Zombie Apocalypse Photoshoot
From these Behind the Scenes shots, the weather may look ok, but it was only 4 degrees and soooooo windy! I really did feel like it was the end of the world! LOL But as always I worked hard to get good shots for the photographers regardless.
Ambassador for Black & Blue Fashions
I am so proud to be sponsored by Black & Blue, and have been their loyal ambassador for over 4 years now! I am always wearing the newest cool fitness wear and I haven’t had to buy a piece of clothing for myself in over four years!
FILEX -AUSTRALIAN FITNESS EXPO
I enjoyed just hangin’ around the Black & Blue stand…taking an afternoon nap…IN THE AIR! As you do..when you are hanging around with Australia’s STRONGEST MAN!!
Watch this video of me checking out the new range of my favourite Shakers at the Core 150 stand with Eugene who decided to throw an impromptu interview on me!
Chatting with the Champs like Michael Klim, Mr.Universe Sammy Ioadinnis and his KILLER calves, and Boxing Champs Sam ‘King’ Soliman and ‘Stan the Man’ Longinidis!
And chatting UP the boys! Hahahaha Calum Von Moger may be 10 years too young for me, but can you blame me for trying to get a ride home with him?! And Cover Model Joel Bushby- say no more! 😉
And who wouldn’t LUV SUM of the protein balls by these brothers with their cute stand and Bicycle?! LOL!!
Of course NOT to forget hanging out with all of the gorgeous GIRLS too! Like beautiful Fitness Model Michelle Richards and Cover Model Jenna Douros!
I had an AMAZING weekend at Fit X, amongst so many people who share a passion for Health and Fitness, and sooooo many SEXY bodies! WOW! Check out this coverage of the FIT X event by Luke Trainor, where I am interviewed alongside some inspirational athletes who also attended the event:
And here are some snaps from the weekend pictured having a BLAST! 😉
It was so fun to meet people like gorgeous Charlotte with her amazing long hair that makes me so jealous! And I managed to bail up my Coach- Perry!
With one of my banners at the Black and Blue stand and with Black & Blue owner/designer Gary and Angie:
Snapping a ‘selfie’ whilst I was waiting for some ‘Black and Blue’ Glitter tattoo’s to be plastered all over my body and having some fun with my Model friend, Bridget Bailey:
With the beautiful Susie Koutoufides from the Kouta Club and Champion Fitness Model Sophie Guidolin:
Mucking around and having wayyyy too much fun with my Coach over at the Dymatize stand:
Flexing fun with Bodybuilding Champion Shawn Rhoden, and pretending to be a ‘middle’ weight boxing champion myself in between these champs over at the Black & Blue stand! 😉
Popping over to say Hello to some of my favourite fitness supplement suppliers like the awesome Next Generation Supplements crew:
And being ‘mean and green’ with weightlifting Champion Florian Loock! 😉
I had the BEST weekend hanging out with all of my fitness freak friends and superstars and this expo just keeps getting BETTER every year! __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Nobody would realise just how busy I have been ‘behind the scenes’ whilst setting up my Company and business of the online webstore, the SPUNKY SHOP. Coming soon to my range of promotional products at www.spunkyshop.com.au will be your chance to go to bed with me! Hahaha! Curious about what product I could possibly be developing from this (lying around on a bed naked)? Well it’s all a secret for now! But let me just say that this will be the perfect present for all of the single guys out there! You know I am in the business of making dreams come true 😉
Photoshoot with Harlem Productions
It’s times like today when I am reminded of just how far I have come. I JUST finished another HUGE photoshoot today, or should I say production, since there was a Director, Hairdresser/Make up Artist, Stylist, Videographer and Photographer …all fussing about me on the coolest set that had been styled especially for me! To be able to stand in lingerie as a bikini model in front of a whole team of people with lights and cameras zooming in close up on my body, is really such an accomplishment! Living my dreams! Watch the shoot on You Tube:
DREAM CHASING- my ‘Farm to Fairytale’ dream experience of gracing the LAS VEGAS STAGE!
When I first started my transformation journey, I had a dream to lose enough weight to be able to walk onto a Las Vegas Stage, in a big Showgirl costume like a Victoria’s Secret Model! When my dad passed away and I was faced with a heartbreaking personal separation in the same year, I decided that it was time to finally follow my dream, and MAKE IT HAPPEN! I was also able to grant my mum’s lifelong wish to visit Disneyland. We hit up Hollywood, Las Vegas, and ofcourse DISNEYLAND together and the journey was a bit like ‘Thelma & Louise’ only it was ‘Mum and Stacey Louise!’ You can check out my Behind the Scenes daily diary entries via the handycam via the ‘Farm to Fairytale‘ link:
But now it is on to even BIGGER sights!
Oooooo and check it out- That’s ME! I made it onto the 2014 World’s Poster!
It was one SUPER SEXY SPUNKY FIT Shoot located at MY GYM in Eastgardens Sydney with one of Australia’s leading photographers, Danial Gowans.
Here are some i-phone snapshots my assistant took through the day, but please check out the Gallery for some of the final edits from this shoot. Just hanging around the gym in my lingerie… as you do! Don’t you? Hahahahaha ;P
Here is some more footage Ell took ‘Behind the Scenes’ of the shoot:
Here are a couple of the final edits from this shoot:
There are plenty more edits from this shoot in the Gallery so be sure to check it out! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I was so proud to come third this year and share in $18,000 of prizes in a line up of tens of 20 year old girls!
The Canberra times and TV coverage stated ‘Miss Louise TRUMPETED that she is a Personal Trainer in her 30’s who has lost over 30kgs’ HELL YESSSS I ‘TRUMPETED’ my age and achievements! Hahahaha!
Red Hot Pie TV
I won a Bikini Competition (the Halloween Fantasy Fashion Show sponsored by Amorous Coco, Melba’s on the Park, Sexy Party People and Red Hot Pie TV) and then I was asked to work at the ‘Island of Sin’ Boat Party on the Gold Coast. Over 700 people travelled in boats out to South Stradbroke Island for a day of entertainment.
Whilst working on the Island I was asked to do a photoshoot for Red Hot Pie TV and Amorous Coco Bikini’s. Below is some footage from the shoot.
Australian Motorcycle & Scooter Expo
The Expo was HUGE!
The face on this helmet looks familiar…
I had lots of fun promoting my limited edition ‘No Fear’ helmet at the expo!
Asia Pacific Fitness Model Championships
Fitness Models from all over Australia and International Competitors made their way to the Gold Coast for the HUGE Asia Pacific Championship weekend. I was lucky enough to be able to arrive a couple of weeks prior for a bit of a break away and to complete my final preparations on the sunny Gold Coast.
After TWO spray tans the same day I was getting a few strange looks at the airport when I picked my Personal Assistant Ell up!
I was so excited on the morning of the show, that I found it hard to sit still for my make-up!
And when I arrived at the convention centre and saw the stage…I could hardly wait, I just wanted to get up there straight away!
No this is not the set of a Dexter show, this is backstage getting ready for the first round (Bikini) and they have fully taped up the whole area to protect it from our tans!
Then it was time for the fun Themewear round! I wore my Lingerie Football League outfit designed by Anne Hardiman
And finally it was time to get into my Evening Gown for the last round
Here is another backstage snapshot pictured with First Place Champion Fitness Model, the beautiful Melissa Le Man and my priceless assistant Ell who was such a fantastic helper all day, bronzing up my arse, dressing me and taping me up for each round!
And here is a pic of me with my fourth place trophy and gleaming with happiness ;P
Click here to check out my Blog for some pictures of me on stage at the ANB Asia Pacifics. After the show I drove back to my apartment in my diamond encrusted evening gown, crystal heels and bling jewellery! I was tempted to stop at Sizzler’s for a buffet but thought I might be a little overdressed!
So it was time to get changed and hit the town for dinner with some of the crew and the Model Afterparty! Here we are pictured at Hard Rock Cafe for dinner, Fitness Models sure know how to eat after a show!
And after many weeks and months of being so restricted with our diets and training, fitness models also know how to let their hair down! After a fun-filled party night at Sin City nightclub, we ended up walking the streets of Surfer’s Paradise looking for ICECREAM! Here I am with First Place Champion ‘Teenage’ Bodybuilder Kwame Duah walking the streets of Surfer’s Paradise. I think I did ok to keep up with these young ones!
We really had Cold Rock or Baskin Robbins on our minds, but at 3am in the morning the only place open was Macca’s! So here you go… a Fitness Model line up at the Surfer’s Paradise McDonald’s just like it is a stage waiting for their Chocolate Sundaes! hahahaha
Then it was time for me to head home, but Ell and I made sure we got our Ice-Cream the next day when Cold Rock was open!
Ell stayed with me at my apartment at Chevron Island for a few days after the show to help me celebrate! We started with a jog along the beach and breakfast on the foreshore. Check out this day after show breakfast- that really is caramel covered bananas and waffles with hot fudge sauce- yum!
We decided to let our hair down by taking our little hire car for a trip to the Wet ‘n’ Wild water themepark!
Which was lots of fun until…. we ran into a little car trouble…
Does anybody know a mechanic around here? Oh wait…he’ll do ;P
Maybe next time I should put some petrol in the car before we decide to go out for the day? Ell gave up on waiting and chose to take alternative transport back to the apartment! ;P
When we finally got back, we hit up the 7D Cinema where the guys in there gave us the celebrity treatment with free movies in a cinema all to ourselves!
The next day was Pyjama day at My Fitness Club in Broadbeach, so we didn’t even need to get changed before going to the gym!
There was even a DJ in the Gym with a couple of step ups as his stage!
Even though we were in our PJ’s, we weren’t just there for a snooze so it was TIME TO TRAIN!
Finally we went from dressing down to dressing up, for some antique photographs as memories of our week of celebration together!
It had been an awesome week with my beautiful assistant Ell, and I couldn’t be happier to bring home my fourth place Fitness Model trophy from the Asia Pacific Championships, reminding me just how far I have come. Just stepping onto that stage is such an achievement. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Photoshoot for Natural Bodz Magazine
With all of the Fitness Models making their way to the Gold Coast for the HUGE Asia Pacific Championship weekend Natural Bodz Magazine decided to hold a shoot at the Watermark Hotel in Surfer’s Paradise. It was a great opportunity to meet some of the other Fitness Models that would be competing at the Asia Pacific Championships.
The two Stacey’s! I am pictured here with Stacey O’Malley who is one of Brisbane’s Fit Model’s, you can check out more photo’s of Stacey O’Malley via the Fit Models Gallery click here.
Lastly, I have one request…can somebody please find me a fit boy to jump on the back of? How cute are these two in the background?! (Fitness Couple Melissa Le Man and Sonny Brown)
Still on the lookout for a sexy man to feature on the front cover of magazines with me…! In the meantime I am pretty excited to make the Natural Bodz Magazine Calendar, warming up the winter month of June
It was another fantastic show for ANB (Natural Bodybuilding Show) with some amazing talent. It is always so inspiring to talk to the athletes, and being backstage on show day gives another insight into the immense mental and physical preparation that each athlete puts into the day to present at their best on stage.
Well I really do have a hard job sometimes! Such hard work having to interview these boys… hahaha ;P Let’s just say there were a few business cards handed out for the ‘Fit Models’ Agency!
There is always a great deal of friendships formed and comradery backstage at ANB Victoria. It is a supportive environment with everybody understanding the hard work that each competitior has put in to show up on the day, everyone encouraging each other and also having a few laughs in between all of the tanning and pumping up going on. It was great to be the first to talk to the competitors about how they were feeling when they came off stage with their well earned trophies and medals.
And ofcourse it’s not all about the boys beach bodies, as there are just as many (if not more) sexy and SPUNKY FIT women at the show from the Under and over 30 Fitness Models, to Figure Girls and even Masters Women. Some of these women are over 40 and 50 years of age, yet have bodies many 20 year old girls would die for!
At the end of the day I had a bit of fun in the studio Ross Brownsdon Photography had set up on location at the ANB Victoria Venue to photograph competitors with their trophies and fantastic physiques. It had been another great BIG day!
Nik Studioz Photoshoot
I flew into Canberra on Friday night ready to hit the studio on Saturday morning feeling pretty WILD adorned in animal/reptile prints (Rrrrreoowwwwww & hisssssss!)
The shoot location was found with a little bridge on a quiet back road a short drive out of Canberra City. As you can see on this I-phone snapshot below, it was a scenic and sunny location!
It was such a fun day with the amazing Nik Studio.
There were many laughs, including when a ute full of guys come around the corner, looking like they were heading out for a weekend camping trip and looking quite surprised with the sight along the way! They approached the corner with a shout out of “HOLY F&^%$#@!” as I ran for the light screen to hide behind!
The busy, busy FILEX weekend was mostly business for us, I was busy promotional modelling and seeking the SPUNKIEST new products for the SPUNK SHOP, and my assistant Ell, was busy on the lookout for models for the Fit Models division…However, there was also FUN and a bit of DRAMA, starting with Ell’s first plane trip and ending with my luggage being left in Sydney!
The Taxi Rank Coordinator made sure we were hollered a Platinum Black Taxi so the black leather seats would coordinate with our matching black leather tracksuits! Oh…and they asked for a hotel with matching decor too…;)
Then we hit up the recreation area at the Hotel to get PUMPED UP for FILEX!
But we really didn’t require any ‘pumping up’ for the excitement of FILEX, and especially not when we arrived at the venue at the same time as BODYBUILDING STAR JAY CUTLER!
Here ere are some pics of us at FILEX, doing a bit of SPUNK SHOP sourcing and Fit Model Agency scouting,
And some pictures of me at work; promotional modelling for Black & Blue and posing for visitors to the Expo:
Then it was time to knock off and wander outside of the convention centre to hit ‘The Rocks’ (which I learned is not actually rocks but instead a lovely spot in Sydney filled with laneways of gorgeous old restaurants) for dinner at Boroque French Restaurant for some delicious modern French Cuisine!
Monday night before we left was a gorgeous night to check out some of the other sights of Sydney!
To add a little ‘drama’ to the weekend, my luggage got left in Sydney on the return trip!
But NOT TO DISPARE! I decided to go buy some new jocks at Victoria’s Secret so I would be right until my luggage was delivered to me via courier the next day
Overall it had been a HUGE weekend of fun and work, we got to meet some awesome new people and products! A long weekend to remember!
I have had an opportunity to do some Ring Girl work within my role as an Ambassador for Black & Blue.
Champion ‘King’ Solomon’s gold belt is so heavy he needs two fit girls to help him hold it up! I think we can handle that! I think we also did a good job of coaxing him into getting the shirt off- it’s such hot work! ;P
And time for a costume change for I-Core Shakers:
And sharing stories with some other promo models at the show, I stood tall as they ask for a photo with Claire and I, how do I hold up next to these young 20 year olds? I think I can stand my place! 😉
In the afternoon we headed over to the Boxing Ring to take on the role of ‘Ring Girls’ for the official Australian Boxing Federation Championships being held at FIT X on the Saturday, sponsored by STING.
On Sunday I worked for Max’s Protein on the Maxine’s Burn stand and I went home with no voice after chatting to so many people all weekend, doing what I LOVE!
I do a bit of Grid Girl work at the Grand Prix and Superbikes each year in Phillip Island, Australia. But when I was contacted to do some promotional modelling for NZI Helmets I had no idea it would be so much fun! It started with a Photoshoot in which the images would be used to design a new limited range Helmet, titled ‘No Fear.’ I enjoyed posing and playing around, and it was decided that we would do a ‘Hear No, See No, Speak No EVIL’ theme.
And this is the cool finished product which is now an ongoing available line in Australia and Europe in both a Road Helmet and Scooter Helmet! They call it the ‘NO EVIL’ design with ‘Aussie Babe, Stacey Louise’ ;P
Then I got put up at the 5 star Silverwaters Resort at San Remo and got to bring along my girl Ell as well for all an expenses covered and paid working weekend of fun at Phillip Island! The first Helmet to sell for the weekend was actually one of my NO EVIL helmets! I offered to sign it too
Here are some pic’s of Ell and I at work
And having some fun posing with some of the visitors to the Expo Shed:
I was not dissapointed when this visitor (‘Benson’ down from Canberra, ACT) lined up for a photo with us! You can have the Helmet Mr Hottie….if I can have you? ;P
Since the Superbikes weekend it has been fun to see my helmet being worn on the road and track!
Miss Hawaain Tropics
There were three rounds, Bikini, Hawaiian Theme and Sports theme and I was up against 30 other girls who were mostly 10-15 years younger than me…
AND I WAS WRAPT TO PLACE 2nd! Ok so I was not going off to Hawaii..hahaha BUT it was such an achievement to come second in such a competitive and young field and another reminder of just how far I have come! Here is a backstage i-phone snapshot of me with my sash looking very proud:
SPUNKY FIT SISTER SHOOT!
I love my sexy sister so much, so it was awesome to have the opportunity to shoot with her when talented Melbourne Photographer Natalie V approached us for a magazine submission. We had such a fun day!
Here are a couple of the edited final shots by Natalie V, and you can check out more via the Fit Models Gallery click here.
On the way home in my little ‘playcar’ we got a few toots from cars and a lot of strange looks from people still wearing our black face paint!
Whilst in Melbourne I had to run in to one of my agencies to pick up some business cards and other promo material for some promotional modelling I was doing for Playboy at the Melbourne Cup. Jayne took a photo of me with one of my business cards which ended up getting over 2000 likes in a day on facebook! There must be something about this war paint…I just haven’t quite figured it out yet…hahahaha ;P
BEHIND THE SCENES HIGHLIGHTS
Here are a few other ‘Behind the Scenes’ moments that I remember!
Driving from Melbourne to Bathurst in a car full of blondies… getting lost…and then breaking down at the Dog on the Tucker box at Gundagai to be saved by a friendly local who jumpstarted us!
We got to Bathurst eventually, got dressed in our uniforms, worked hard each day and then rested our feet by the pool in a houseful of models each night!
Playing around in the pits with this gorgeous 18 year old (yes paired up with a girl 15 years younger than me!)
Being looked after by the NSW Police 😉
And being RIGHT there in amongst it all when Jamie Whincup won and enjoying the celebration with him and all of the drivers at the Official Afterparty!
Mucking around with the boys, Mika Kallio and Scott Redding when I knocked off my Grid Girl Job at the Moto GP in Phillip Island.
Catching a Stretched Hummer into the Melbourne Cup as a Playboy Promo Model:
Fixing cars up with Duct Tape!
Getting paid to go Go-Karting!
Driving race cars
And picking out which car to drive home in!
Being there amongst the atmosphere at the Miss Summernats competition, in the top 5 amongst a crowd of girls in their 20’s and winning over $3000 worth of stuff!
Winning ‘Sexiest Costume in Vegas’ at the Palms Playboy Club on Halloween dressed as a mermaid, and then going on a HUGE shopping spree in Las Vegas with my US cash winnings the next day!
Making awesome new friends every weekend!
And one of the funniest yet- rocking up to a ‘Grid Girl’ job with my girl Ell, to realise it was the set of a filmed competition with model drift cars! LOL!
Modelling has definitely been full of so many memorable moments, and although it is never as glamorous as people think, I am so thankful to wake up healthy and fit and make opportunities like this a reality for myself.
