FEATURED How to get the most out of your iPhone camera.jpg.jpg

I’m a geek girl at heart. Always have been, always will be. If it’s new and it’s techy and it’s going to help me in my personal or professional life then I’m on it. I’ve also always had a thing for photography. Not a professional thing. Just a hankering thing. It’s a hankering that goes

The Styling You book deal

From blog to book | Styling You secures a book contract with Hachette

When I was in high school, my father was the head of English. We lived walking distance from school and one afternoon on our walk back home across the oval, we got chatting about my latest English results. The results were ok but it wasn’t my best effort. The reason? The exam involved writing a

How do you follow Styling You?

How do you follow blogs?

Do you follow a lot of blogs? I do. I have to say that blog reading often takes over time I previously would have devoted to magazines, newspapers or books. I go to bed with my iPad, reading late at night without disturbing my husband with the turning on of any bedside lamp to read.
