My name is Aoife, I’m 24 and I’m from Ireland. I started this little space in March 2015 because of my previous job. I worked early shifts in customer service, and had a lot of free time during the day. I had no passion for what I was doing work-wise, and no way to really express myself during my free time. Hence, rockettequeen.com was born! During that time, I was able to dedicate a lot of my time to the blog. Now that I work full time with a long commute, that sadly isn’t the case. But any spare time that I do have, I love using it to grow this space that I’ve grown so attached to.
How rockettequeen.com started
It started as kinda… Well, everything. Beauty, lifestyle, lists, facts. Very little fashion, which I find so strange looking back on now. In the beginning, it definitely didn’t have a niche. I posted whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Two and a half years later, it definitely has more direction. I post specifically about monochrome alternative fashion, cruelty-free beauty, opinion posts and lifestyle-type experiences. Maybe in another two and a half years, it’ll change direction again. But right now, I’m really happy with where things are at.
What lead up to this point
I have two degrees, an undergraduate degree in Anthropology and Greek and Roman Civilizations, and a post graduate degree in English Literature. Both of these have contributed to my ability and style of writing as a whole. As of now, I work as an online copywriter and team leader in a photography studio. I write fashion copy for premium and contemporary brands for several high-end companies and stores in Dublin. Given my love of fashion, I’m really grateful that what I do full time allows me to express what I’m passionate about.
In terms of working with brands, I’m happy to do so as this is a PR-friendly space. I’m happy to accept collaboration and write posts reviewing items/products. Specifically, I review/document: cruelty-free beauty and skin-care, alternative fashion brands, and monochrome fashion items. If you feel that your item or product is a good fit for my blog, I’m happy to consider reviewing it. This is an open-minded space, so even if your product is not listed above, please don’t be afraid to contact me about it to check.
