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

elf (eyes, lips, face…oh my!)

I got this elf liquid lipstick in Pink Lemonade from the darling Etta in our beauty box swap last month and I absolutely can’t get enough of it. The first thing that got me was the actual tube. On it is written: Directions – Twist 10-12 times before first […]

The King!

Elvis Presley <sigh> the undisputed King of rock n’ roll died 36 years ago today. Was there anyone cooler than Elvis, before OR after his death? If he were alive today he’d be 78 and somehow I think he’d still be dancing those blue suede shoes around Vegas.  […]

Get the Look…

I was trawling through Instyle magazine and this look from Olivia Palermo really caught my eye. I love white and gold together, it looks so fresh and classic. In this outfit Olivia pairs a lace blouse over a silk slip. Unfortunately if I were to wear a slip […]

Booty fever

My biggest dilemma in winter is footwear. I live most days in a pair of stockings/tights so I have to team a shoe that is appropriate to wear with them. I find that I can’t wear heels as I slip around in them with my stockinged foot and […]

Rocker chic

This is my new favourite earrings and necklace set from Etta that arrived in our beauty box swap. I love the rocker chic of the tiny skull and crossbones earrings and the guitar necklace, all with diamantés of course!  They arrived with a little note saying: Rosie, after stalking […]

A touch of the blues

I’ve probably said it before, but I’ll say it again, winter can get depressing. It’s cold, rainy and miserable and everyone dresses drably to match the weather. So to beat my winter blues I thought I’d dress in blue, it makes perfect sense to me! How do you […]
