It’s a wrap

FEATURED King Street, Perth

Hello Brisbane, it’s good to be home but boy, oh boy, did I have a ball this week in Perth. It was a bit of a lightening visit – two nights, two events and not much down time – but it was an adventure and a privilege to be able to meet about 100 SY

FEATURED How to wear metallics

Earlier this month I highlighted this season’s main fashion trends – as worn on the real women of #everydaystyle. There was one trend that I really wanted to see more people wearing. Possibly for selfish reasons. Oh, who am I kidding. DEFINITELY for selfish reasons. I love anything that sparkles, shimmers and shines so of course

13 wardrobe editing tips

FEATURED 13 Wardrobe Editing tips 4

Do you know how good it feels to walk into my wardrobe right now? Very damn good. The day I’d earmarked in my currently busy schedule to do my bi-annual wardrobe edit, I found myself in bed in shock after the glass shower door shattered on me. It took another three weeks for me to carve

The Model and Me: Boom Shankar

FEATURED Boom Shankar

If you’re a regular around these parts you would have seen me wearing a Boom Shankar piece or three. This is a Sunshine Coast-based label that I’ve known and loved from before blogging days. It’s stocked throughout Australia and online at its own site and Birdsnest but many people first discovered the label via its

FEATURED Rachel Zoe for Business Chicks in Australia

I’m going a bit “bananas” this morning because today I’m off to hear and see uber-stylist and personality Rachel Zoe speak at a Brisbane Business Chicks event. This is Rachel’s last stop on her Australian tour with Business Chicks so I’m hoping that Brisbane turns it on. I’ll be adding to the room of colour,

How to dress for Melbourne Cup Day

In two weeks’ time you’ll either be waking up fresh as the day or wondering why your fascinator is still attached to your head. Yes Stylers, the race that stops a nation is off and runnning in under two weeks. Are you planning to be at trackside at Flemington in Melbourne, at a fancy lunch or

The Model and Me: Binny


I have a lot to thank Offspring and Nina Proudman for. For starters many of you first found this blog while searching for something Nina Proudman-style related. For seconders, the show’s costume designers introduced me to a number of Australian labels I’d previously not known. Binny is one of those labels. Binny is a Victorian-based

Oh hello Friday. I see you. I embrace you. My weekend is a little crazy and involves a little work and a little play but I thought I might end the week and look towards the weekend with a new idea for an end-of-week post. This isn’t something that I’ll necessarily publish every week but

Save your soles with FRANKiE4 Footwear shoes


Sponsored by FRANKiE4 Footwear This year my lifestyle has changed hugely since swapping the beach for inner-city living. There is less reliance on our car – we’ve actually gone from owning two cars to one – and more emphasis on walking. I like this for a lot of reasons. I like it for the incidental health

FEATURED fashion trends spring

This is the post where I apologise profusely. Since Unlock Your Style launched at the end of July, I’ve still be adding my daily contribution to #everydaystyle on Instagram and Facebook but I’ve not had the chance to share with you some of the amazing outfits that the real women of #everydaystyle have been sharing.

The Model and Me: Adrift


I don’t know about where you live but here in Queensland, the summer switch as well and truly been flicked on. Even in Sydney on the weekend there was no hint of cooler days and nights. Everyone was out enjoying the sun – at the beach, along Oxford Street at Paddington and at the races by

What to wear on a road trip

Last week our reduced family of three set off on an adventure. It was an idea thought up over a couple of wines one Friday evening and then scaled back a little the following Friday. Our original plan had been to drive all the way to Adelaide for the very RAD Unlock Your Style book

How to style jackets for spring

FEATURED Blue Illusion 1 - denim quilted jacket - close up

Sponsored by Blue Illusion If I had to nominate one clothing piece that offered the most outfit versatility across most of the year, the jacket would win hands down. Or should that be, arms in? A jacket has the wardrobe power to change a casual outfit to semi-corporate; a jeans and tee to a night

The Model and Me: Birdsnest boho bird

FEATURED boho bird

With conflicting reports (here and here – you be the judge) as to whether Offspring will ever return to our screens, today’s Model and Me is an ode to Nina Proudman … because even if she never returns to our screens, her style will always have a place in my wardrobe. I’m far from a fully

I’m an ambassador for Female for Life activewear

FEATURED Female for Life top and jacket

Sponsored by Female for Life If someone had told me a year ago that my first blog ambassadorship would be an activewear brand, I think I would have fallen over on the spot. I’m not a fitness blogger or a nutritional guru. I’m just a 40-something chick who 12 months ago decided to take charge
