FEATURED The dream team - Liz Tagla and Viv Somers - get me prepped for the Telstra Business Awards 2015

It’s been a very big year for Styling You. We launched our first online pop-up shop (our second – the 2015 Spring shop – opens for the month next Tuesday!) and the business behind the blog was a winner at the 2015 Telstra Business Awards. We didn’t win at the national level last week but

Today I’m heading to the annual Problogger conference. Yes, my non-blogging friends, there is such a thing. This is the sixth conference for bloggers looking to create a business or an income around their blog. I wasn’t at the first one in 2010 but I’ve attended ever since. I remember following the first event roll out

Here’s where I confess to executing a total fan-girl moment. It’s true. It happened last Friday when I was in Sydney for my sponsorship and advertising agency’s annual conference and third birthday celebrations. Founder of the Collective Hub magazine (and author and speaker) Lisa Messenger was our final speaker for the event. Talk about end

How to pose for photos + WIN an Olympus selfie camera

FEATURED Olympus selfie lunch

Sponsored by Olympus Australia I have two friends who are former models. The only former thing about them is that they no longer model professionally. They are utterly gorgeous, tall and know how to pose for a photo. Now, most people might shy away from being in a photo with a model – former or

Sponsored by Olympus Australia So you’re not a fan of the selfie when it comes to sharing photos on Instagram or other social media or blog platforms? That’s ok. I get that. There is another way to otherwise tell a story or give people a visual insight into your daily life, your wardrobe, what you

Late last year I coordinated and organised my own photo shoot. For the seventh time since I started Styling You. Sounds conceited and up myself, doesn’t it? Here’s the thing. It’s not. If you’re a business owner, a corporate employee often called on for expert opinion, a blogger, a writer … anyone with a professional

Styling You home office 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really wasn’t at home much in January. And when I was it was a crazy blur of school holiday and work juggle. The essential stuff got done while each day my office became less of the haven it was meant to be and more of a cluttered, heaving mess. A mess, I decided to ignore

How to take a selfie

FEATURED How to take a selfie - selfie - #selfie_olympus

Sponsored by Olympus Australia When I first blogged about how to take a selfie – in 2012 – the whole concept of a selfie was seemingly reserved for bloggers. In 2015 you’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t taken a selfie. Even big name celebs who have their photos taken by professionals (granted,

Say hello to the Olympus selfie camera

Sponsored by Olympus Australia I can remember my first camera. Can you? It was rectangular in shape, had a basic point and shoot action and a flash. The subjects of my photos were always off centre and I’d make each roll of film last as long as possible, knowing the cost of having it processed was

When I started blogging, I didn’t really know what blogging was. I was the accidental blogger. I had a website on a blogging platform and I added content but I wouldn’t have called myself a blogger. Mostly because I didn’t know what a blogger was. That all changed about 18 months on. The reason for

The Styling You community is a growing one. I’m so grateful to all the beautiful women who come and visit my blog every day. Thank-you. I think I have a handle on who you are and what makes you tick but I’m a curious person and would love you to tell me about yourself. I haven’t

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

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
