Let me introduce myself.
I realised I needed to give this ‘About’ page a bit of an update, because a few things have changed since ROLLY Mag launched in 2018.
Now you can find me studying speech pathology at uni, playing with my dog Lola and buying too many beauty products (ah, some things never change!)
I’ve met some incredible people, done some incredible things and tried some INCREDIBLE products thanks to this blog and I could never have expected any of these things to happen.
Thanks for popping by, feel free to message me if you have any questions, and enjoy! xx
I’m Rolly. Kinda. It’s was my childhood nickname- and it’s stuck.
I’m now 18 years old. Fresh out of high school, facing a whole new chapter of my life.
I grew up reading Dolly magazine, and then CLEO and Cosmo. Back when Sara Mclean was beauty editor at Dolly- I decided that writing was what I wanted to do. But within my lifetime, magazines have almost died out. And it makes me so sad to think that girls of today won’t have Dolly to turn to. But this blog- I hope- will be a magazine of sorts, for myself. A collection of thoughts, ideas, things I’m loving, brain rambles etc, etc. Hence, the name is a combination of my self hood and my passion – this blog is a cumulation of who I am, was and who I want to be.
ROLLY Mag has been in the works- ie. in my mind- for at least 5 years. And sitting here to write this feels kinda surreal. I am finally doing it. I know 13 year old me would be so proud. Although, ha ha ha, it’s already been a struggle. Creating an email, Instagram handle and setting up this blog has taken more time than I imagined. But I’m doing this for me. Past, present and future me. I created the logo myself- woo. For some reason, I have always imagined ‘ROLLY’ in capitals and ‘Mag’ to be cursive. It’s not perfect but it’s a start.
I’m excited for what lies ahead for ROLLY Mag…
