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

This has to be THE easiest recipe to make, and to top it off it’s super tasty. All the flavours meld together to make a light, delicious and fabulous week day meal. I had this ready in under 15 minutes and was very impressed with myself! Bon appetit […]

Sunshine on My Shoulders!

I’ve been truly lucky and blessed and have been nominated for another award, this time it’s the Sunshine Award, and not once, not twice but THRICE!! The award is “given to those who inspire us and bring ‘sunshine’ into our lives”.  This is such an awesome award and […]

Vamp out!

I’m so jealous of all the autumn/fall lip colours that are coming out of the northern hemisphere at the moment that I wanted a piece of the action myself. I’ve seen it everywhere from the runway to the latest magazine spreads and I thought why only limit this […]

Studded Tops from Kmart

I had a lovely comment the other day from Kirsty from Geelong Fashionista about the outfit I wore to the An Evening with Vogue event I went to, I knew then that I’d need to post about the tops that I’d just scored from Kmart and share the […]
