Styling You and Hello Me Escapes

In 2016 Styling You and Hello Me Escapes hosted their first travel tour to Bali.

You can read all about how much fun we had here.

In 2017, I’m excited to be hosting two trips plus an event in conjunction with Hello Me.

We’ll be heading to Melbourne in April and then back to Bali in October. These escapes are designed for women wanting to travel on their own or groups of girlfriends looking for more from a girls’ weekend or week away.

That “more” will come in the form of a styling workshop hosted by me as well as dedicated shopping trips. There will be sessions in some of my favourite stores as well as special offers and gifted clothing items from some of my favourite brands.

As part of the Melbourne shopping weekend, I’ll also be hosting a high tea event (this is now sold out). If you’re on the shopping trip, you’ll get the best seats in the house.

Spots on each of the escapes are purposely limited. We want these trips to be small groups so I can better work with you and we can easily get to know each other.

Read on for specific details as well as links to secure your spot. Don’t hesitate to email me: if you have any questions.

Escape to Melbourne in Style with Styling You's Nikki Parkinson | Styling You and Hello Me Escapes

What’s the first think you think of when you think of Melbourne?

SHOPPING. Of course.

I’m heading to Melbourne and hosting the ultimate girls’ long-weekend away.

I will host a group style workshop plus shopping sessions, visiting favourite shopping spots in Melbourne. This weekend is also your exclusive opportunity to get one-on-one styling advice from me.

There will be plenty of opportunities to show off any new purchases with the package also including welcome drinks at a rooftop bar, a group dinner and tickets to a high tea styling event, hosted by me and open to those living in Melbourne. 

As for where we’ll be staying, the Westin Melbourne is one of the city’s most luxurious hotels – plus we’ll be ideally located for CBD shopping.
