Brands, blogging & keeping things real

WHO: Nikki Parkinson | WHAT: Brands, blogging and keeping things real with Styling You course | WHEN: October 28 | WHERE: Floreat | WHY: Because Nikki was in town launching her book – so why not throw in a blogging course too?

A short and sweet post my friends, but I just had to share this picture with you. Last Tuesday night saw ANOTHER trip to Floreat (three times in a month or so – woah) but this time for something very special. It is not every day one of Australia’s most successful and beautiful bloggers comes to town to launch her new fashion book and I was lucky enough to steal a few words of wisdom from the lady herself! Who am I talking about? Nikki Parkinson of Styling You of course.

If you don’t know much about Nikki you need to get on the internet NOW. Her blog is literally one of the best places to go to find inspiration for jazzing up your personal style at any age, body shape or stage in your life, with the added extras of travel, health and beauty. I’ve been a fan for quite a while now and when finding out she would be holding an intimate blogging course aimed at working with brands I had to be there!

Without revealing too many of Nikki’s secrets, let me just say I left feeling very inspired to grow my blog post course. Her tips and tricks were perfect for beginners as well as the more advanced bloggers and it was really interesting to see the different mix of writers, fans and small business owners who attended hanging on her every word.

I even had a bit of a fan girl moment when I met Nikki in the flesh. Being the lovely lady she is she signed my book for me a day early since I wasn’t able to attend her official book signing due to work commitments. If you get a chance to head along to one of her events you’re in for a wonderful, inspiring evening. Thanks Nikki, please come back soon!


Who are you dying to hear speak?

  3. Hi Em, I went to Nikki’s talk as well, I was so impressed…lots to learn and think about.

    • So many new faces Lisa! I wish I’d stayed back a bit longer to meet everyone, but I was out on a school night hahaha. 🙂

  4. I go to Floreat every week but Nikki’s talk was much more exciting than my usual grocery shop! She was so inspiring and I had lots of take-aways from the evening (more work to do!). As a newbie it was lovely to meet some other Perth bloggers too! Hopefully the next one isn’t on a school night Em 🙂

  5. That’s really cool, would have been awesome to hear her take and what tips and tricks there are to build your blog. She’d know that’s for sure. 🙂
