How do you straddle having great taste that is a little costly for everyday all while trying to maintain a savings? Also, simply, I'm terrible at saving. Tips? Gracias! Much love to you always and gratitude to you for creating. Xo!

Hm, taste doesn't have to be expensive at all! Lots of my favorite items I've found through thrift shops, flea markets, or Craigslist. It's almost the best assessment to further curate your eye to like what you like vs. what capitalism tries to merchandise for you.

Hey Rachel,
What’s the best advice when your going through a heartbreak.
P.s. you’re sooo lovely.

Admin Reply by: Rachel
Aw, I hope you're feeling better by now Natalie. I think the best advice, although the hardest to follow through with, is to find your independence again and fill your life with hobbies, friends, and time to heal. Time does always heal as hard as it is to imagine sometimes 💖💖

What would you get between an iPhone 8 or iPhone X?? And what is your current iPhone including color? 🙂
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I have the iPhone 7, the X looks cool, I'd probably get that if I were to upgrade. Honestly, all the iPhones kinda feel the same right now.

can you do more cooking videos? not even full cooking videos but show us more of what you make/eat day to day? your whole30 video helped me soooo much with my diet and skin!! also what detox do you do? i saw on ig about going back to la and doing a detox!!
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I don't really do 'detox' program per se, but I do constantly try to detox as part of my every day diet. I just did a hell week program and it's not detoxing, but it was really great guidance for toning up! x

what's your favorite spf? like which one for everyday wear, summer, swimming?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
Coola makes really great waterproof ones, but every day wear, I like the Dr. Jart CCT because it's like makeup and zinc in one.

Helpppp! My prom is coming up and Im stuck trying to find a simple but elegant dress. What did you wear to your prom and do you have any site recommendations? love ya x
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I wore a dress that I bought so early on in my life, I wish I bought a cool vintage dress - something I'd do now. Also, The Real Real has such beautiful cocktail dresses that are pretty affordable if you dig through the site! x

Rachel! Do you have any hair tips? I live in the south and have a similar hair texture as yours - wavy/curly. I’ve yet to discover a way to tame my texture and make it look uniform / not looking like the girl from The Exorcist. You’ve really nailed the effortless look and was wondering what your step by step process is like. I remember you once took over OUAI’s snapchat and posted your process - that was gold btw - would you ever do a similar video for your youtube channel?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
oh i should totally do a hair video, i'm surprised i've never done one! I forgot about the OUAI takeover haha I can do it like that. for now, my only tip is to shampoo on the 3/4 day and lots of hair oil! x

Hi, Rachel! First off, I want to say that you are absolutely gorgeous, and I really admire how you carry yourself in terms of style and confidence and the way you absolutely emit vibrancy when interacting with others. Ethereal is the only word that comes to mind. You’re ethereal, girl. This raises the question: What is your philosophy on communication? How are you able to be so open, chill, and cool at the same time? Based on your videos, you really attract and influence positive energy. Any tips to building strong, lasting friendships? x
Admin Reply by: Rachel
Aw this is so sweet, thank you for noticing. Hm, I think as far as communication, it's best to be open both to yourself and externally. ALSO if youre comfortable, the person youre talking to or are friends with will feel comfortable too and open up to you and thats always appreciated. sometimes you even gotta fake the comfort until it's real

Hey Rachel. I've been a slump these past few months. I have no idea what I want to do with my life and I feel like everyone is pressuring me to choose a career. How did you know to take the path you have chosen?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I really didn't haha I think it helped that I was flexible and very curious, so I explored a lot and also have gotten very lucky 🙂 x

Hi Rachel have you ever thought of changing your youtube profile picture? You look beautiful in it but I think the picture doesn't represent mood of your youtube content well.
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I'm gonna do this today

hey rachel this is super random but i just saw casey neistat's vlog about rip offs that was posted around 2 years ago then i came across your comment. I don't know which big youtuber ripped you off but I've never seen any youtubers as unique as you. Your personal touches are everywhere in your videos and they are so mesmerizing and dreamy. I'm not a creative nor an artistic person but I really appreciate what you're putting out on the platform and hope you never stop!
Admin Reply by: Rachel
merci! i don't even know who i was talking about. maybe it was glossier cause they copied my video shot for shot, but it's cool now. appreciate ur comment!

So you definitely seem pretty knowledgeable in the health aspect of life, among other things! 🙂
What are your favorite daily supplements to take? Slash which supplements are the best to travel with in your experience?
Thanks!! <3
Admin Reply by: Rachel
look into care/of! i don't like to recommend supplements, it's so personal and trial-and-error. but I like to travel with probiotics

would you recommend the olympus mju ii zoom 115?? xx
Admin Reply by: Rachel
totally! although i had to tape the cover because it kept opening in my purse and now the innards are sounding like it's about to break every time it opens; only flaw.

Your new website is so cool and so you! Love every bit of it.

If you weren't a full time blogger, what would you be doing? What brands and companies would you love to work for?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
