About Vanisha

Well hello there! I’m so thrilled that you’re spending some of your precious online time over at A Life Un-Styled! My name is Vanisha and I’m the 29 year old behind this space. I’m originally from Fiji, but often live and work across various countries. You’re likely to find my husband Patrick and I moving between Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. I have a PhD from the Australian National University and work as a freelance research consultant. Patrick also has a PhD which has worked out perfectly as we have a research consultancy firm Making Connections Fiji, which I run and manage.

When I’m not blogging at the Making Connections Fiji blog, or working on children and young people’s issues in the Pacific you’ll find me here talking about the children’s reading space which I helped set up, our adventures buying land in Fiji, or just about enjoying married life our way and more recently our expecting our first child!

There’s a real mix of things here including social good and philanthropy posts (I’m a World Vision Australia Blog Ambassador), lifestyle posts that capture the essence of my un-styled life, tips and tricks on growing your blog and socia media, personal posts that delve into relationships and my struggle with infertility. As well as style and travel posts. Pregnancy stories have found their way onto the blog and I’m sure motherhood stories will too but I’m conscious that there’s so much more to my life.

In the beginning takes you through the journey that this blog and I have been on and I think is a fun place to start.


This website was developed out of the blog of the same name. I see it as that comfortable messy lounge you walk into and feel at home in. A space where less is more, where we pick quality over quantity and style over fashion. It’s a space where we share family, travel, joys, tears and frustrations. It’s an interactive space. Remember when I told you I found out I couldn’t have children, and you told me that it would be okay? Or when you reached out to Skype, and I said any time! You know, that kinda place…
