With a staggering 1.3 million followers on Instagram, Tara Whiteman (aka Tara Milk Tea) is our favorite it-girl of the moment. Her Instagram and website are beautifully curated, with Whiteman’s content revolving around travel, lifestyle, and fashion, all presented with an underlying sense of cool.
Describing her style as “playful, vibrant and chill all in one”, Whiteman’s work is dedicated to documenting her daily lifestyle. This mostly includes her latest travel adventures, showcased through food, places, and people. At only 25 years old, she recently completed her Honours degree in Design from The University of New South Wales, all while traveling and working full time on projects with clients, as well as managing her lifestyle blog and Instagram.
But when it comes to her styling, it’s all about that extra something, something. “I love to add sparkles and stars,” she explained in an interview with Buro Malaysia, explaining her creative approach to image-making. “It’s not just about capturing the scene,” says Whiteman, “it’s beyond that. It’s about transporting people to different places and seeing things in a different light. I also love to experiment.”
According to Whiteman, her goal has always been about living life to the fullest, and creating her own happiness. That is also why she pursued entrepreneurial roles, and chased what she loves doing from a young age. Having grown her online audience and fanbase, she now hopes to inspire others to do the same. She’s already won us over.
