Sponsored by Dr. LeWinn’s When I wrote this post a few weeks ago, I didn’t realise how good it would feel to write down those words. Just stopping, pausing and reflecting is not something I’m in the regular habit of doing but it’s something I realise I should do. As busy women we are quick

Unlock Your Style is here

Today is the day. Today is the day that Unlock Your Style launches. If you head into a book store today – or in Big W, Kmart or Target – it should be there (for online options, see here for a list of retailers). My book. I’m so incredibly grateful that you – my lovely

One of the wonderful privileges that have in my job as a blogger (and as of tomorrow an author!) is that I can support independent fashion designers. I know many of you reading have discovered these designers through my blog and that feels like I’m playing a part in supporting a creative industry that needs our

Should you wear ripped jeans?

The real women of #everydaystyle wearing ripped jeans

If anyone had told me six months ago that I’d not only be wearing ripped jeans but actually loving wearing them, I would have laughed quite loudly at the suggestion. I did the ripped thing back in the day – when the early ’90s were leveraging themselves out of the ’80s and into the grunge

How to dress like Nina Proudman

We interrupt our regular Nina Proudman style program to bring you some style thoughts from Jane Harber, the actor who plays Zara in Ten’s Offspring. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet and interview Jane when she was on a day trip to Brisbane to talk Offspring with media. It’s pure coincidence that we’re both

My health story – an update

It’s been a while since I wrote a health update here. You can catch up with my health story here and here. In a nutshell, it’s 12 months since I decided to get serious about my health. I’d always been pretty good with my food choices. I’d made quite a few changes because of my

Unlock Your Style launches in one week

This is like a Christmas and birthday countdown rolled into one. The anticipation and excitement at the moment is mixed with a whole lot of crazy time pressures but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Unlock Your Style will be available at Big W, Kmart, Target and all good book retailers from next Tuesday. I’m

The Model and Me: Motto

Motto top and pants SS14-15

There are times when I put on a garment and cannot believe just how right the designer gets it in regards to creating something that can be so comfortable AND so flattering. This is THE winning combination in my style book. Earlier this year, Australian label Motto introduced me to its Lauren cropped pant. There

What to wear when you are pregnant

What to wear when you are pregnant maternity chic style from the real women of everydaystyle

It’s been eight years and 362 days since I was last pregnant. If I’ve done my maths correctly then that equates to my youngest child turning nine on Monday. Those nine years have disappeared in the blink of an eye. Before then I hadn’t been pregnant for further nine years. SO MUCH had happened in

I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again – my multiple wardrobe personalities often sway nicely between the style of both Proudman sisters. Billie Proudman speaks to my classic-corporate style personality; Nina Proudman speaks to my romantic-casual style personality. Many of you are either one or the other. And that’s ok too. Probably more ok

We’re more than half way through a beauty year Stylers. So many products have been released on to the market. So many more to come. These monthly posts are meant to help you choose new products that might fit your beauty regime, lifestyle and budget. Each month I choose five that I’ve been trialling over

It’s two weeks until my first book, Unlock Your Style, launches. Eek. Double and triple eek. Hot on the heels of last week’s “save the date” announcements, I’ve got some ticketing/booking info. Tickets are limited so do jump on board if you can make it. (Please don’t panic Melbourne, I am coming your way. I

A new fashion season is a dawning. I know it never makes any sense. It’s something that happens twice a year so you’d think I’d be used to it by now but coming off a week when we experienced some of the coldest temperatures in more than 100 years it really does make it tricky

What to pack for a weekend in Melbourne

What to wear for a girls weekend in Melbourne #everydaystyle

I know a lot of people have been lucky enough to be travelling in recent weeks – either near to home or half way around the world. Not here at SY HQ – work has beckoned. Today’s #everydaystyle post has come about thanks to an SY reader who is looking forward to a weekend away

This week I was lucky enough to get 15 minutes on the phone with the two creative people behind the costuming on Offspring. I spoke to Michael Chisholm and Zed Dragojlovich last year (you can catch up here) but I was keen to catch up with them again this year with some burning questions about Nina’s wardrobe for
