Let our stylist of the week — Chelsey — take you on a trip through her sherbet-colored world!
Chelsey’s FP Me photos look as though they’ve been dipped in a sunset, set amongst peachy-hues and crystal clear waters, making life in Sydney, Australia seem pretty amazing. When she’s not hopping from beach to beach, Chelsey’s likely recapping her adventures via Chasing Chelsey. If you need a little warmth in your life (like those of us stuck in the northeast chill!), take a look below and read up on one of our favorite FP me users!
Tell us about yourself: where are you from/ where are you now/ what do you do / how did you get to where you are?
Hi I’m Chelsey. I’m originally from the UK but caught the travel bug at the age of 18 when I set out for my first summer in Ibiza — the magical white isle! From there I went on to become cabin crew, which really showed me what the world had to offer. During my 3 years of flying the globe I was introduced to Sydney, a city that I instantly fell in love with and can now happily call my home!
For anyone who’s never been to Sydney, what can they expect?
For anyone coming to Sydney expect lots of smiling faces — it’s one of the things that drew me in! Plenty of boutique cafes serving the best coffee and healthy brekkie options. The beaches…oh, the beaches! So many hidden gems for soaking up sun and scenery. All of this available in a major city that constantly offers up new things to see and do — it will certainly keep that diary of yours full!
What does a typical day in the life look like for Chelsey?
A day in my life…ideally, it would be spent at a beautiful beach, relaxing in the sun with a good book (I really feel the need to do this whenever the sun is shining). However, come those overcast days, you would usually find me in my favourite cafe book store searching for my next inspirational read! Weekly activities also include Saturday market shopping for fresh veg and cheese — something so simple, but love to indulge in every week with my partner. That always brings us lots of joy.
What’s your daily beauty regimen?
My beauty regime has recently changed after discovering rosehip oil! Why had this been kept a secret from me for so many years?? Along with many Lush (my favourite) products, I’m sure to use 5-6 drops of rosehip oil morning and night..the result? I no longer feel the need to wear makeup!
Are there any beauty products that you’ve currently been obsessed with?
Apart from rosehip oil, I’m a huge fan of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream and Lush Dark Angels Facial Cleanser! You will always find these in my bathroom cupboard.
If you could directly relate your personal style to a movie character or TV personality, who would it be and why?
TV style…now, that’s a hard one as I really don’t watch much tv. If I’d have to pick, it would be Sienna Miller!

What inspired you to start your blog?
My blog was initially inspired by my travels whilst working as cabin crew. I’ve always had a big love for clothes and thought it would be the perfect way to showcase my outfits. Since moving to Sydney my lifestyle has completely changed, becoming so simple…which I’m loving more and more every day. I miss the traveling mind and wish to maintain my ‘travel some place new every month’ mantra — just more local. Luckily, Australia is such a beautifully diverse country — the next trip can be right here on your doorstep.
What is it that you love most about blogging?
Not only is blogging a great way to document my travels, but it serves a great opportunity to inspire others to seek out their dreams…to show people that anything really is possible when you put your mind to it — alongside the clothes and new places I’m discovering, of course!
What Instagram accounts do you turn to for inspiration?
@innika by Innika Choo — she has the most beautiful family life in Bali. I always love to see her posts. Her style is very simple yet unique with a bohemian island feel.
Any new music you’ve been digging recently?
Music I can’t get enough of right now is Alabama Shakes, how have I only recently discovered them?

Do you have any travel plans in the works?
Travel plans coming up…to say I’m excited right now is an understatement. In just 10 days we are jetting off on a 6-week adventure! It’s been a little quiet up until this point, one reason being visa requirements. There’s just been so much planning for my partner and me!! Starting off with a family Christmas in Miami, then onto London, then to my hometown of Shrewsbury to celebrate Nana’s 80th birthday ,and finishing up in my all-time favourite destination, Mexico, for a festival and relaxing break in Tulum. Happy face!
