On Thursday Heidi was seen handing out ice cream to her admirers from a truck covered in branding for her Heidi Klum Intimates range and retailer David Jones.

Ever the modelling professional, Heidi used her props to her advantage and was seen holding an ice cream cone up to her mouth pretending to lick it.

The mother-of-four used the opportunity to show off her fabulous figure in a super tight navy dress.

But while Heidi covered up she was joined by scantily-clad models dressed in lingerie from her new range

Taking to Instagram to document the event, Heidi uploaded a picture of the ice cream truck to the social networking page on Thursday.

Along with the image she wrote: 'Had a blast handing out @heidiklumintimates lingerie cones today at @davidjonesstore ! Thank you to everyone who came out! #heidixdjs #heidiklumintimates #heidiklumman

In addition to her underwear range, the mother-of-four recently revealed she would be expanding her line to include swimwear.

how big should your wedding be

When it comes to your wedding, you should get to invite every single person you want. But unfortunately, it's just not that simple. From family needs to venue constraints, there's a lot to consider before you make yourfinal count. Here, our experts reveal the key points you must consider before you decide just how you're your bash will be.

Consider your budget.

How Big Should  Your wedding be?

According to Kelly Heyn, owner of SociaLife Event Planning in New Jersey, your budget should be the number one factor in how large your guest list grows. "Without a realistic goal on what you would like to spend, you will not know how many guests you can even afford to invite," she points out. So create your budget first, she says, by calculating your largest costs and even the smallest expenses that can quickly add up.

"Typically, couples only think of the venue when they consider their guest count, and tend to overlook the little things," Heyn says. "But with more guests come the additional expenses of invitations, stamps, favors, stationary, transportation, and even larger cakes. Consider all of the extras when you are factoring your guest list as they quickly add up." Should you find at any time your guest list has grown past your budget, "I advise going down in guest count to allow yourself to get the wedding of your dreams," says Alicia Matsumoto, owner of Bespoke Design.

Consult your families' must-invite lists.

Your guest list is not the only one you'll have to consider, say Heyn and Matsumoto. Both of your families will likely have people they'd like to see in attendance. "After you have an idea of what you would like to spend, have everyone on both sides of the family create their must list," says Heyn.

Matsumoto advises setting a limit on how many guests each family can add to their lists. "That way," she says, "no one is surprised down the road." Of course, if your families are footing the bill, expect them to have a stronger say in how large your guest list becomes. "This means sometimes they will want to invite people that you are not as close with, but just remember that they're giving you this wedding day so it's part of the price you pay," says Matsumoto. "That being said, it should not give your family free reign to invite anyone they want!"

Consider your guests' comfort.

Your venue may boast space for 250 guests. But if that means cramming in everyone so that they feel like sardines, you may want to cut back on how many people you invite, Heyn points out. "Make sure that your venue can absolutely fit your guest count," she advises. "Ask them to see a floor plan with that number of tables and seats. You ultimately want you and your guests to enjoy the wedding experience and not feel too cramped on the dance floor or bumping into tables and chairs all night."

Categorize your initial guest list.

One last tip to help you determine your final count, says Matsumoto, is to create your dream list broken down into color-coded categories. "Categorize guests into various groups from must-haves to distant acquaintances," she says. "If you find a venue or discover that your budget won't allow for all the people you would like to attend, it makes for easy editing later on." Not only that, she says, "it also helps to create rules to guide you in who should receive that coveted invitation. For example, if you haven't spoken to the person in a year or more, they probably don't need to be on your guest list."

10 Tips For My Daughters on How to Dress Themselves

At preschool drop-off another mom pointed out,"Your daughter's socks don't match."

I turned my palms upward in a je ne sais pas and wrinkled my nose, "Rough morning. Can’t win ’em all.”

My then four-year-old was Little Miss Mismatched. She loved Disney princess dresses paired with rain boots and purple flowered leggings with her green and gold Packer t-shirt.

That morning, I picked my battle.

She walked into the kitchen dressed in a thin ballerina dress and no tights. I shook my head, unh-uh. It was January. In Chicago.

Without tears, she marched back to her bedroom to change. This time she dressed in weather-appropriate clothes, but her socks didn’t match (one Minnie Mouse, the other mini dalmatians and polka-dots.

Mismatched? Pheh. Not a battle worth fighting.

Now, at five and eight, many of our conversations are about fashion and what people are wearing. I mostly give my girls free reign selecting their outfits because I love their fearless sense of style and the random pairings that look unintentionally chic.

Yet now is the time to lay out our values. Now, before they are teens and tune me out and their friends in. I want to encourage my girls to express themselves, yet not without guidance.

10 Things I Want My Daughters to Know About Dressing Themselves

10 Tips For My Daughters on How to Dress Themselves

1. Dress for You and You Alone: There will be pressure to follow trends worn by your peers. It'll be tempting to emulate Taylor Swift or Selena Gomez. Know this: I love and accept you for you. Please stay true to your personality and embrace your individuality. Pick your clothes for the right reasons: What makes you feel comfortable? What makes you sparkle?

Feeling good about yourself on the outside has an impact on your confidence and how you feel on the inside. Looking good, feeling good, right?

2. Find a Signature Look: Uncover your inner French girl and develop your personal style. Train your eye to spot a look that sings to you. When you're shopping at a store or in your closet, ask yourself: Does this shirt add a pep to my step? Do I walk a little taller, smile a little brighter when I'm wearing this dress? Do I love it? If so, you've landed on a keeper.

Rock your style with confidence and no apologies. You are beautiful if you’re dressed like Princess Elsa or the singer Lorde. Be true to yourself.

3. Be Mindful of Dress Codes: How you dress for school is different than how you dress for the daddy-daughter dance. That one you know, but there will be many more rules for dressing and they’ll probably shift as you age (like smart casual and business casual).

You’ll need to consider the setting, the culture, and even the country. Then you’ll need to know how to code switch. If you're uncertain about what's appropriate or inappropriate, ask someone you trust (You can always pick me. I’ve got your back, girl.)

4. It's Important to Know What Not To Wear: Let's chat about the runway outfits and the awards show glam in US Weekly Let's pore over In Style together and talk about what's in, what's out, and why? This way you know how prevent your crack from peeking out of your jeans. No whale tails, sweetie. If you aren’t yet familiar with the term, let’s keep it that way.

You’ve been begging me to get your makeup done at Macy’s and we’ll do that on a mommy-daughter day. It’s complimentary, yet you are expected to buy a product. I’ll spring for that 20-dollar palette of eyeshadow if you go halfsies. I know that sometimes an expert’s opinion will resonate more than mine. I’ll smile because I’ve been you. I remember.

5. Make Sure Your Logo Matches Your Mind: What do you want to say about yourself? I know, I know, it's just words on a t-shirt, but I read them and so did the boy sitting next to you in math class. If you're wearing a shirt that says, "I Call the Shots," do you know what that means? Do this words speak to you?
