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

OXX Cosmetics Review

We all know the tagline right? Dior Dreams On A Kmart Budget… can I get an amen?! I know that even if I did get paid the big bucks I’d still be living the thrifty life. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be parading around in Prada and […]

OOTD: Flowers

When it comes to dressing like a piece of art I am more than happy to comply! If you’re a long time reader of A Red Lip And A Nude Shoe then you know that I am a HUUUUGE Andy Warhol fan and my favourite piece of his […]

Rosie’s Reading…

Looking at the pile of books on my bedside table I was a little taken aback at all the male authors names staring back at me. Where were all the ladies at? Last month I read two books by men so I thought I’d rectify that and read […]

OOTD: Gaga For Gingham

Dollface, I simply have nothing to wear! No, seriously, hear me out!! OK, so obviously not NOTHING *rolls eyes* but I’m feeling like my selection of funky tops is rather slim. After bulking out my jean-drobe (jeans wardrobe, you get it!, I know) and other great bottoms I’ve […]

Arkadia Golden Latte

 *This product was gifted by Arkadia – all opinions are 100% my own.* Last year I was struck down with the dreaded winter flu and my taste buds changed dramatically. You know the kind, where one minute you’re thoroughly enjoying your morning soy latte and the next even the […]

Lately… March

Oy to the mutha-effing VEY! How has my birthday month come and swiftly gone? To be fair, March has been extremely low-key by my usual birthday month standards but it has still zoomed by. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t hey? It was actually a month […]

OOTD: Green Sleeves

Seems like once I decided to open the floodgates on all the clothes I thought I’d never wear again in this lifetime I now have a compulsion to wear (and buy) them ALL! It all began with 12 Days of Jeans-mas and my, now, new love of all things denim. […]
