Welcome to SOS TV. On this page, you can find all the links and # and tips and tricks I mention in my new series – SOS TV. Thank-you for watching my show! Remember if you choose to share your style on line then use #sosstyle.
I started the series in March 2020, because of the rapidly changing world we were living in with Covid-19. My business dried up overnight and I wanted to remain productive and helpful. So I decided to start a much longed-for TV Show – all by myself. It’s all low production values but I’m high on the scale of caring and sharing and being there for my community!
I have listed each episode below, starting from Episode One, reading from the bottom up.
Let’s have a watch party – every Friday at 5pm when I will be drop a new Ep. each week during lockdown.
If you love music then check out my Spotify Playlist – SOS BEING BRAVE 2020 and add your own anthemic songs! It’s collaborative and meant to help make us feel stronger at this wierd time.

EPISODE SIX – Friday 24 April
This week we learnt that we will stay in lockdown 4 extra days and then into Level 3. So here I am again with another of my lockdown inventions – SOS TV. The reason I am here every week is to bring the LOLS, some light relief, some style inspiration and all the sisterhood. Thank you so much for watching.
It’s Fashion Revolution Week this week and to learn more about what this all means, who they are and how you can be a part of it, head to the Fashion Revolution NZ Instagram Page. I was asked to share my favourite piece in my wardrobe to highlight the fact that #lovedclotheslast – can you guess what my fave piece is?
One of the most common questions I get asked is how to wear casual wear that isn’t frumpy or active wear. Well here I have 4 outfits, inspired by my client requesting more options for her wardrobe. Here’s what I pulled together. (Video to come Saturday)
I can highly recommend our local Wine Shop for yummy and speedy wine deliveries – especially if you live locally to them in Auckland: https://www.fineowine.co.nz/shop/

Have incredible weeks sisterhood and keep up spreading joy and inspiration where ever you go. EJ x
EPISODE FIVE – Friday 17 April
How have you found this week Sisterhood? Week 3 in lockdown hasn’t been my best to be honest. I struggled to find my mojo and felt a little defeated. Like many of us who have seen our businesses decimated during lockdown, I was a little lost. But then I remembered Beyonce and asked myself #WWBD?
Then I made some mini-cheesecakes for my husband for his birthday and all was ok in the world.
I got busy and tackled some code on my website to confirm my online styling service – available for anyone in NZ right now! I can’t wait to help you.
I’m excited to be joining my friend and fellow stylist, Caitlyn Taylor, tomorrow at 3pm to record her podcast – keep an eye out on my instagram page. Saturday 18th April 3pm.
The jeans blog can be found here: http://www.sisterhoodofstyle.com/style-blog/lets-talk-about-jeans-baby/
I’d like to thank my friend Beck for helping me with the woolens care piece. Her favourite soap of choice is the Sunlight Soap bar. She loves a good wool wash!
Have a sensational week – hopefully our final in stage 4 lockdown! See you next Friday. x
EPISODE FOUR – Friday 10 April
I had so much fun making this episode. Mostly because I had to film it in my bedroom! It made me laugh so much (to myself). I hope you enjoy.
What I was wearing
What I learnt
- I found Tik Tok. If you know you know. It’s an epically wonderful way to waste time. All my acting dreams have come to life. Enter, if you dare. I’ll be there, lip-synching during lockdown, doubt it will last, but it’s a lot of fun right now.
- I’ve been a long admirer of the 100-day project and this time I’m going in. Check out Amanda Billing’s Insta account who has inspired me to partake. She has an inspiration kit to help you start. I’ve chosen to use her printables – and write a poem or a story every day. I’m starting today. I’m a late starter, but who cares, better late, than never. I’d love to know if you choose to do it too.
- Lena Dunham has written a serial novel and all the chapters written can be found at Vogue. It’s called “Verified Strangers” and I am here for it.
- Check out Cathy Pope Jewellery for her fantastic tips on how to wear jewellery and what styles and shapes work best for you. If you sign up to her newsletter, you get a fabulous e-book too!
What I’ve been baking, making and EATING
- This excellent no-knead bread from Petite Kitchen.
- These sensational decadent sticky buns from Annabelle Langbein
- This wonderfully easy (and moist- sorry I had to use that word 🙂 ) Carrot Cake
- My kids LOVE aioli, so I tried this Chelsea Winter recipe and I will never buy store bought again. I was told it was restaurant quality!!10 SECOND AÏOLI
- For the first time ever, I have made Chelsea Winter’s Hot Cross Buns, which is handy at a time that we can’t easily buy them. They were a lot of work, but it means that we have appreciated them more. Like a good girl, I followed the recipe exactly, instructions and all and they turned out perfectly. Thanks Chelsea (again).
