My belly is on fire for the women I want to help and the sisterhood I want to be a part of. Styling looks so flamboyant and untouchable to most people and I hear them say to themselves “I could never do that”. But I want to tell you sisterhood – yes you can. Styling is not an elite sport, it’s not for “everyone else”.  It is an awesome opportunity to create the external message you want to portray. Spending time on yourself, taking care of how you look is not vanity.  It’s a careful curation in helping you to put…

Hey sister, so great seeing you here.  I love that you came to me, asking about my styling sessions.  I really value that you trust me to look after you.  We’re going to have so much fun uncovering your style. Will I have to get my clothes off in front of you? Babe, only if you feel comfortable.  I am no size 8 and know it can be embarrassing getting changed in front of others with your mum undies and bad bra on, or maybe you’ve got your sexy matching knicker set on, to make you feel outstanding. Either way,…

Let’s hear if for the girls, let’s give the girl a hand. Sometimes she don’t talk sweet, but I don’t really mind.  I know some may say I swear like a potty mouthed trooper but I’m 42 so I think I earned my stripes. And (I’m gonna swear now)……..I just want to say thank fuck for you. I’m celebrating the sisterhood today sisters, all of you and then some.  You’re a fabulous bunch of style mavens, queens, mothers, non-mothers, brilliant, kick-ass sisters.  I felt you deserved some celebration. When I set my first style challenge on Instagram this week, I didn’t…

I popped my cherry for the Sisterhood last night. Get your mind out of the gutters sisters from other misters,  I popped my biz networking cherry to be exact. Part of starting your own business is about networking, meeting new people, influencing others on your business and trying to figure out how to make sense of this crazy thing called entrepreneurship.  I was bricking myself. I even shot to the toilet as I arrived to calm my nerves. I gave myself a stern talking too and got my big girl panties on and headed out into the unknown and into…

Date night.  It’s an American concept that has filtered through marriages & love matches around the world.  I was a long time listener but first time caller once I became a parent.  But date night doesn’t apply to just parents, no way sister.  The concept is for couples to take the time out and celebrate being a couple. Huffington post tells us that date night is important because it allows time for romance, fun and commitment (which is kinda important in a love match isn’t it). Auckland’s Heart of the City want us to have date nights, so we can check…

Sisters, it’s Friday – TGIF and all that jazz.  In fact, let’s do a little tippy tappy jazz hands dance. What are you wearing this weekend?  Are you hiding behind active wear?  Do you want a bit of inspo? I’ve done some trawling for you and have found a few spot on pieces that will make your weekend wardrobe look as good as you feel on the inside. Winter weekends for me are spent on the side of a pitch, shopping with clients, working around the house, making mischief with friends and hanging with my small humans.  I need what…

I’m sitting here with a glass of wine, following another glass of wine with a dear friend. This post is a bit more personal that I have posted before, but it’s something I feel strongly about and a reason why I started Sisterhood of Style – which is to be a champion of a sister’s self confidence.  We bumped into each other on our way home from work and being a Thursday, I threw going home out the window and agreed to a glass of wine.  Just the one.  But one was all we needed, cause sisters, she has a…
