Hello you sensational Sisterhood.  I have a cautionary tale to share. A social media filter can sometimes make a drab photo fabulous.  I wanted to find out if it could make my life fabulous too. Filters and fabulousness It was a Monday, 7pm-ish. To be specific, it was the second Monday of the school holidays and I’d been working. I’d been juggling the handovers, the takeovers, the switchovers and the caregiving. Not to mention, the dinner being made, the clothes to be washed, the activity schedule for the rest of the week and my own work. Let’s just say, that…

Style Challenges. Why you should get amongst. Have you ever seen a Style Challenge and wondered what’s the point? Why do I need to follow someone to tell me what to wear? Why would I share what I wear on social media? Well, I’m here to encourage you to take part in one and convieniently, I’m starting a style challenge on Monday! Just in time for you to take part. A style challenge is not a new phenomenon, but it’s one that social media totally dominates. You can @mention the people inspiring the challenge and use hashtags to collate the…

Imagine this sisterhood, you have a style dilemma.  You have two events in one week, you’re a busy mum of two, you spend most of your time in active wear because you run an award-winning  cancer rehabilitation physiotherapy business.  You’re about to collect two awards in the same week, one a New Zealand Order of Merit and the second, a Denizen Magazine Hero award, but you have no time, you don’t know where to start and you have never had to choose two completely different outfits for such prestigious events before. You need more time.  What do you do? Or…

How to layer your clothes like a boss Remember that ad in the 90’s from Sara Lee, extolling the virtues of  ripe fresh fruit – layer upon layer, upon layer?  I liked that ad. Just thought you should know that. It also got me thinking of layering of a different kind – layer upon layer of winter goodies, loading up your style trolley with the goodness of colour, print, pattern , length or textured layers. Don’t know what I am talking about?  It’s not rocket science – don’t let the fashionistas know I told you this, but it’s just layering up…

This week, I learnt I like sober raves at 6.30am.  I learnt I’m great at making a chocolate cake, but not so much a carrot cake. I learnt I like networking evenings.  I learnt I get more tired the older I get and you just have to suck it up and box on. I learnt that eventually I have an off-switch that I need to hit sometimes and I learnt that no matter what, seeing anyone taking heroin or glue-sniffing makes me cry.  What’s this got to do with style? Not much, but I figured you may not mind.  If you…

I’m sitting here with the perkiest boobs (I hate the word tits) that I’ve ever had and with the cutest little peekaboo straps sitting above my T-shirt neckline.  I have my arms close to my body and I CAN’T FEEL MY BOOBS.  They sit close by, ensconced in lace and some magical fabric that has me not only contained, but perky, minimised but not flat, what is this black magic you ask? It’s called a well fitting bra sisterhood. My boobs are where they should be and nowhere they shouldn’t and I feel bloody amazing, just in my baggy T-shirt and…

It’s my birthday, I’m gonna party like it’s my birthday. I’m one year old this weekend and I like it.  Hey, don’t tell EJ (the mother of the Sisterhood of Style), but I’ve taken over her blog ’cause I wanted to write to you – the sisterhood about what it’s been like to have been the Sisterhood of Style for one year.  Let’s celebrate. But first, let’s reminisce. Back in the late hours of 2015, just as EJ was having a bubbles and about to ring in the New Year, she had only just started to imagine me.  I was a…

So there’s a dress that you love but it hangs in the wardrobe because you brought it for a wedding and you can’t see past the event you wore it too, to wear it any other way. It’s an awesome dress and you want to wear it more, except you can’t visualise how. So I thought some Sisterhood inspo was needed after I had the same dilemma after wearing such a dress to an wedding last year and now, I  wear it many different ways. I am the hunter of bargains, of style that is affordable, wearable and doesn’t break…

  Welcome 2017, you’re looking good kid.  So much to look forward too and few things I’m going to want to avoid. I thought I would help set the 2017 tone, by giving you a little taster of what’s coming down the style highway.  You may want to queue at the lights or take a detour, but best you buckle up and a settle in for the ride, either way. Colours – according to Panetone, the colours of Spring 17 are vitality, relaxation and the great outdoors.  Funnily enough, you may have seen a lot of these colours on the…
