Rosie Rockets

I'm a Melbourne girl born and bred. I've lived abroad in Japan, the US and UK, but ultimately the need for good coffee brought me back home. I am constantly searching for delicious food and wine to eat and drink, the ultimate dress that makes me look fierce and to perfect my eyeliner game!

I love the fun of fashion, make-up and accessories, and my new passion is to find fabulous items on the cheap. I prefer to dress up rather than down and when ever I can with a red lip and a nude shoe.

A few other things about me; red over white wine (unless there’s bubbles, always bubbles), cats over dogs, summer over winter, eggs over easy – see what I did there?

If I'm not eating (which is rare), I love to shop, read, run, watch movies, love Pop Art (natch!) and I'm quite partial to a crossword. I also love organising the next outing and you’ll find me scouring social media to find out where the newest restaurant, bar, museum, opening of an envelope to go to is. One day I’d like to turn this hobby into work, any suggestions let me know at rosirockets@hotmail.com

Rosie’s Reading…

As I was packing for my upcoming trip I was gripped with a sense of utter panic and a massive burning question; just how many books does one pack for three weeks away? Being an “old fashioned” reader and not hip to the Kindle-craze means having to physically carry […]

Lately… May

It’s really no surprise to learn that May was a very quiet month in ol’ Rosie land what with me running my first ever half marathon. I promised myself that I wasn’t going to bring it up, AGAIN, as I feel like that’s all I’ve been banging on […]

QV Face Purifying Mask Review

 *These products were gifted by Ego Pharmaceuticals – all opinions are always 100% my own.* Can you hear that dollface? It’s the sound of Mother Nature knocking on the door and ushering winter right on in! Who invited her again? You know what you have to look forward to now? NOTHING! […]

48 Things I Love…

Over the last few months I’ve had an influx of new readers and followers (thanks so much dollface and I hope you’re enjoying the blog!) and I thought I’d do something a little different and pop together a “love list” as a way for you all to get to know […]

OOTD: Red Stripes

You have no idea how happy I am to tell you that I’ve finally found the one! I’ve been on the search for what feels like ages now and I can’t believe I found it when I wasn’t even looking (isn’t that always the way?!). Yes, dollface, I’m happy to […]

Rosie’s Reading…

I mentioned on Instagram the other day that I haven’t been posting much on the blog lately as all my attention has been focused on my half marathon training. It feels as though I’ve been living in my sweats and the thought of putting on some make-up and […]

Lately… April

In the classic words of one Mr Bruce Springsteen “baby, we were I was born to run” and I have been doing LOADS of it! Most of my weekends these last few months have been taken up by loooooong runs on Sunday mornings and April has been the […]
