Hi, I’m Georgia (just in case you didn’t realise from my incredibly humble site name). Welcome to my blog. If stumbled across this page you’re probably looking for some light reading, or maybe you’re trying to find out if I can actually write (pls hire me), or this is a total mistake but don’t leave just yet — at least check out my latest posts to see what you’re missing out on…

But I’m just a girl trying to make it in this huge world, and this is me leaving whatever legacy I can with words on a page screen. From the latest in beauty, fashion and the female agenda to my most recent adventures, this is the United States of Georgia.

About

At age 7, I dreamt of becoming a ballerina.

At age 12, I dreamt of becoming a police officer.

At age 16, I just wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw, living in an apartment on Jane St, writing for a living, drinking Cosmos, falling in love and hanging with my girls.

I had so many dream jobs and goals growing up that I’ve basically lost count. Writing and becoming an editor was the one consistent dream, as always at the back of my mind. And so United States of Georgia was born.

This blog, like me, is a little bit jumbled, comprised of tiny snippets of my life — adventures, heartbreaks, activism, love, empowerment and all things beauty. I’ve found excitement through beauty writing and empowering womxn of all walks of life, served with a side of sass to keep it real.

Home for me is an hour south of Sydney, where farmland meets the sea. When I’m not reading or on the 9-5 grind you’ll find me riding my horses, soaking up sun at the beach (lathered in SPF ofc), perfecting my latest skincare routine or jet-setting across the world in search of my next adventure.
