Unlock Your Style update

Nikki Parkinson My Book 25 Comments

Usually on a Friday you’d find a some style tips and some real-life style inspiration from the real women of #everydaystyle.

But this week has not been a usual one.

It’s not every week that a girl launches her first book, signs about 400 of them (Booktopia sold out of signed copies so I signed another 200 of them so get in quick!), said book in its iBook form hits #1 and #2 on iTunes in the Mind, Body, Spirit category, meets lots of fabulous Styling You readers in real life and goes on national TV and radio.

Not very usual at all.

I’m completely humbled by all your support. It’s meant so much.

Here are some of the highlights from this week.

1. Appearing on Mornings on 9 with Sonia and David. Here’s a link to the segment.

  • Congratulations Nikki, such an amazing week for your book launch and you look so happy 🙂 love it x

  • Me

    Just walked into Volumes, my favourite independent book/coffee shop in Eltham (Vic), and your book was sitting front and centre on the table at the entrance! I had to buy it to read while I was having my coffee and the shop assistant commented that the person who wrote this book has something to do with Offspring! Naturally being one of your cyber-stalking type fans I had to fill her in on your fabulous blog and Offspring updates! Love the book by the way! xx
