See you on Instagram.



So today marks a pretty big today for me, as for the unforeseeable future this will be my last blog post. Don’t worry, you will still see Outfit, Food and Jax photos on my personal Instagram (@thisisashrose) – but the days of sitting at my desk to type up a blog post are gone.

To be honest this was not a difficult decision, as it’s been a long time coming. To put it simply, i have reached a point where I feel like the commitment to sharing my life online  (in the perfect, branded format) and ultimately my phone, is impacting my ability to be in the moment. I want to be more focused on living my life, to photograph the moments as I feel fit and not because I feel it’s required.

The Great Ocean Road - Apollo Bay

I have such a deep appreciation for the opportunities this road has opened up to me, whether it be international travel, styling a runway for one of Australia’s largest retailers or simply the friendships i have made and the community i have become a part of.

From day dot the babes at 17Sundays have had my back in more ways than one, Avalina Leather has kept my handbag collection going strong (all time favorite handbag company guys – seriously!) and big players like Westfield and Target have constantly reached out with incredible opportunities to be apart of.  All of which five years ago, i would have never thought to even be within the realm of possibility.

All of which has really proven to myself that when you dream big, believe in your self and work hard – anything is possible!

So pretty much you will still find outfit shots, the food i eat, my hot bearded man and furry kids on Instagram, but they will likely be a little less about the perfect shot (i say this now, but i am a perfectionist!) and more about me.

Down the track i may be still open to behind the scenes styling opportunities (purely because i love it) and if you ever need anything, even just a question feel free to reach out on IG or

Below is an example of what you may have to prepare yourself to now see on Instagram – you were warned!

As for whats next for myself, i will simply be living my best life (Hello Oprah!). Reinvesting that blogging time into walking Jax, Skype dates with my FIFO working man, hiking, wine with the girls and my career. All of which make me very, very happy and in parts, i will still share you through Instagram.

Thank you for everything x

Just in case you didn’t see it above @thisisashrose ……
