Leanne has been a content creator since the early 2000’s, beginning with Live Journal – where she adopted the moniker of Trashtastika, which she uses to this day.

She was Fashion Editor for dark alternative magazine Fiend for several years from 2006 (when it relaunched in Sydney), writing fashion roundups and organising and styling the fashion shoots.

In October 2009 she started the blogĀ TheFashionateTraveller.com, which went for 5 years and largely detailed her travels (especially to Japan), as well as alternative fashion and nightlife.

Trashtastika.com started in 2013, when Leanne was moving away from the gothic lolita scene, and focussing more on writing and general travel. While it is still active, Leanne spends more time writing scripts than writing blog posts these days!
