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

Garnier Pure Active Intensive

Watch yourself

My haul from Francesca’s arrived yesterday! Can I get a woot?! Like all internet shopping there’s a risk with sizes, colours etc. but these purchases had a lot more risk involved seeing as Francesca’s don’t do international delivery and I ordered them to be shipped to our office in the […]

Freebie!

I’ve subscribed to so many magazine and website newsletters that half the time I don’t even pay attention to the emails any more, but when I saw an email from Cleo with the subject line “Free NP Set Lipstick” I had to have a closer look. All I […]

Lusting for Leather

I recently saw a magazine spread on leather skirts and now I just can’t stop thinking about them. I love the idea of a leather pencil skirt teamed with a pair of black heels and a casual top with lots of jewellery for a funky, day time look […]

Work trippin’

I’ve only recently come to terms with the fact that I’m not low maintenance. When did that happen? Here I was thinking I’m the embodiment of Covergirl; easy and breezy. Turns out I’m not. Is it so wrong that I like to look my best? So trying to […]

Strawberry Swirl

Spring is in the air (and don’t my sinus’ know it?!) so it’s time to start rotating my wardrobe and bust out the lighter clothes. I was out doing some grocery shopping this past weekend and saw this look on a mannequin and loved it. The colour pop […]

3 of a kind

I had a brief moment of madness where I was going on a self imposed shopping ban until next month. I’ve been having a hard time lately trying to fit all my clothes into my wardrobe and thought that if I could curb my shopping (and spending) then […]
