Formerly AJ Money Matters, this site was born from a late night text message with Julia asking Amanda if she wanted to start a financial blog...obviously the answer was yes.
We’re both just two millennials trying to navigate this complex world and this is our platform to share with you everything we’re learning and what we’re passionate about. Whether that’s finance, career, or lifestyle, we’re right there with you! Seriously, life can get hard so why not navigate it together….
I graduated from my Masters in Financial Management end of 2015 and I legit thought I was going to be landing a corporate career with a big firm, in the city and working my way up. But, that didn't happen. I went to work for a company in the energy industry and ended up actually loving it in the end.
One of the BEST things I ever did was start this blog with Jules and it's paved the way for more opportunities where I've finally started my own biz in stock photography and copywriting at www.plushcontentco.com.
I lived on the Gold Coast for most of my life but have recently made the move to Brisbane and I couldn't be happier. I'm a creative, I'm an ice-cream and doughnut enthusiast, and bit of a fitness fanatic. I will always have a bottle of red wine in the house and I'm kinda obsessed with honey butter popcorn (you probably have guessed by now I REALLY like food).

Hey lovelies. First and foremost, thanks for stopping by and wanting to get personal with us!
In 2015 I graduated with my Master of Finance and thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. Psych!
Let's quickly rewind, I'm originally from Arizona and moved to Australia in 2014 with the expectations of only staying for 6 months... well, let's just say that didn't pan out, I've been here for 3 years now and just received my residency! (Excited squeal). I struggled finding a job and didn't know exactly what I wanted to do, but one thing that stemmed from soul searching was the birth of this blog with Amanda... yew!
Present day, 2017, you can say this year is shaping up to be for me... landed a great gig with an Investment Bank, received my Aussie residency, and made my first buck from the blog.
Lover of all sports... mostly soccer (Go Gunners) and football (Go Packers) and footy (Go Broncos). Foodie. Bookworm. Creator.
