Entrepreneur and former Miss Australia, Nicole O’Neil is smart and beautiful making her the ultimate Sydney Housewife. Born in Dubai to a Swedish mother and Lebanese father, Nicole grew up in Sydney, went on to achieve a Bachelor of Commerce and married her childhood sweetheart Adam.
Their daughters, Nawal 12 and Neve 10, have enjoyed a global upbringing, raised in both London and Dubai. However, it’s Sydney that’s captured Nicole’s heart, and wherever their extensive travels take them, the family always find themselves returning home to Australia.
Nicole was raised in an incredibly tight-knit family, and it’s her fond memories of childhood celebrations that eventually inspired Nicole’s career. In 2002, Nicole founded planning and production start-up, Pret-a-Party, specialising in creating lavish, unforgettable events in Sydney and London. But Nicole’s favourite events are the ones she spends at home with her nearest and dearest.
A born entertainer, there’s nothing that makes Nicole happier than playing hostess to her family and closest friends – aside from shopping, which Nicole believes could have been her calling, if only it were a competitive sport. Whether she’s at work or with her family, Nicole is highly driven and always on the go. She also admits she’s very impulsive and passionate; a force to be reckoned with.
