women with style blog

The combined regions of Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, and the Greater Hunter Region, is bursting with incredibly talented women, each of whom deserve to be celebrated!

Businesswomen, Artists, Caregivers, Essential Services and Volunteers – All of them ‘Women of style’ and substance, each with their own unique and valuable contributions to our community.

Lakeside Style Loft will endeavour to showcase many of these amazing women and unlock a real sense of strength and support of each other – right here, in our own backyard!

Each week, Lakeside Style Loft will interview a ‘Woman of Style’ from Lake Macquarie/ Greater Hunter Region, via a questionnaire. Each woman interviewed will nominate the next Lakeside ‘Woman With Style’.
