hey girl! i creeped your linkedin and saw you studied economics. what made you want to study economics? what did you want to do as a career when you were in college?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
literally only went to school because I was forced to and it was the most general major I could do. I was already working on my blog stuff and so I was seeing where that was going. I had no vision, I was just going with the flow!

How do you stop comparing yourself to others?

Hi Rachel! Your New year, New Me Reset video is truly inspirational and I wanna say thank you! I did follow through your video (even had my mac folders sorted out with emojis in its namesπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’») and I just feel so much better afterwards. I really adore you and how you stand out among all the other influencers - with the content you created, your delivery style and your chicness in general. I agree with how everyone says you're a breath of fresh air! Keep doing what you're doing, you're my itGirl! 🌟 Lots of love from your Thai fan πŸ’–

Admin Reply by: Rachel
I like buying them off the Real Real, but I don't buy a ton of sunglasses. I have a few that I really love and splurged on! x

Hey Rachel! ibukun! (That’s means blessings in my language). I’m not sure if this question has been asked or answered but I wanted to know what is a good blogging website to create something as beautiful and eccentric as your site. I don’t want to copy you at all, that’s not my intention, I have so many wonderful ideas on how I want my blog to use, and all these CMS (like wix, Squarespace) are so simple and I can’t express what I want. Do I just hire a website developer or??? (Lol bones ques. What was your major/what did you study at school?)
Admin Reply by: Rachel
hi! I made mine off of Wordpress but I used a developer for it. I hear Cargo and Wix are both really good options, you just have to know how to code a little bit and think outside of the box that they put you in, as the beginning consumer. You can definitely create a quite advanced site on those platforms! & I studied economics but I only went to school because I was forced to. xx

Hi Rachel-

I'm a huge fan of all the content you put out! I was wondering who your favorite designers were when it comes to bags/purses?

How do you save $$? Advice on budgeting?
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I guess I'm just a little picky where I spend my money, I'll splurge seasonally on clothes but I'll mostly put the majority of my paycheck in my savings and leave out only what I need for my rent and stuff πŸ˜… honestly I'm not the best person to ask!

Hi!
I was just wondering what you did the first year/few years after you graduated? And in comparison to that: if you had finished school now, being interested in a lot of different things but not willing to immediately start studying again, what would you do? I'm graduating this spring and feel there's about a hundred things I want to do.. Every idea seems exciting so there's no anxciety connected to it (yet), but yeah, would love to hear your thoughts. Maybe travel or move some place different? Take a course?
Love from me, thanks for creating such inspiring and authentic work. <3
Admin Reply by: Rachel
I pretty much started working from the moment I was 15 to now. Even going through college and after college, I was always working whether it was for my blog or a company. I never had time for myself, and if I could do things differently I would live in another city before I got too acclimated where I am! x

rachel ! where are your black sunglasses from (the one you wear in most of your videos)
Admin Reply by: Rachel
They are Off-White collab with Warby Parker, you can probably find them on Ebay nowadays!

hey rachel! i have a question regarding your wardrobe... in the first vlog of your summer 31 days of chic you change into a shirt that says je parle francais and i was wondering where you got that top and the shades you're wearing from? so cute!
Admin Reply by: Rachel
The shirt is vintage andddd the sunglasses idk, you'll have to DM me what you want me to identify!

Hi Rachel!!
Recently I've been thinking about buying "vlogging" camera and I'm stuck between GoPro and Canon g7x
I know theyre completely different but they both can film and take nice pics. Only gopro can go underwater which canon cant but on the other hand canon is amazing to!
I really cant decide so I wanted to know your opinion πŸ™‚
Admin Reply by: Rachel
i say canon g7x all the way. the gopro is not comparable to sound quality which is so important to good video making. like, the canon is so good, i rarely use my DSLR to film. the gopro wouldn't be able to replace that. but i want one too, it's definitely a purchase to get once you expand more. also, i don't recommend it completely.... but i've used my phone to film underwater (totally was okay in a pool setting, home buttton stopped working in the ocean lulzz)

Hi Rachel!

Just dropping by to say I’m a huge fan of your work ❀️ Visited LA recently (I’m from Malaysia) and the whole 2 weeks I was there I wished I bumped into you! I even went to larchmont hoping I get to see u there (writing it all down now makes me sound creepy haha).. You’re such an inspiration! Love your originality and your vibe. Looking forward to your posts and videos in 2018

Love,
Your fan from 8,000 miles away

aw you're so sweet, sorry we didn't run into each other but thank you for tuning in and so happy you're enjoying my mind πŸ™‚

Hi Rachel! I was wondering if you still use Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Β™ Tiger Grass cream? And since the color ultimately turned into a beige, would it not be recommended for those when a medium skin tone? Thank you in advance, hope you're having a relaxing day
Admin Reply by: Rachel
yeSsssssSS i love it so much still - but yah, i guess i don't really use it when i'm tan. i like it cause it's like a physical sunblock. do you have a sephora around you to test it out? it's definitely a love/hate depending on your vibe, you know?
UNKNOWN wrote on January 13, 2018 at 4:46 am:
Hey there! Your videos are such a breath of fresh air and really reflect who you are as an individual. I really respect that. This is a compliment, I swear - it is truly truly such a delight that you are not one of those instagram IT girls donning the same brands and posting the same ads. Stay that way<3 Keep doing you, girl.
Admin Reply by: Rachel
thank you for making me feel better about the choices i make πŸ’•πŸ’•

How do you honestly feel about the glossier body hero products?? I'm very intrigued, but they're at the price point where I'm gonna be mad if I buy it and don't love them

Thanks!
Admin Reply by: Rachel
i actually loveeeeeeeeeeeeee it. the body oil wash is really luxe in the shower and feels great 9/10. the lotion is wonderful and smells amazing as well but i have so many great lotions in my life (i prefer coconut skin trip)

love this new part of your website. thx forever always for making yourself such a generous source of inspiration. and idk if you're in want for some music recs, but i'm super into 1980s japanese disco/city pop/funk right now, and i think you could find a vibe somewhere in it all; i got hooked with 'plastic love' by mariya takeuchi. xx

Hi Rachel,

I loved every minute of Vlogmas 2017. May I ask where your woven bag was from?

It's from https://www.amestudio.co/shop/! But it's sold out... the Claudine would be my second.

Rachel do you have any tips on how to find yourself again after a breakup? I went through a breakup a few months ago, I was in this relationship for a lot of years and I feel so lost right now. I feel demotivated and my self esteem has been slowly decreasing every day. I guess that’s a part of rejection. I’ve been watching your videos since day 1 and I truly admire you, as a YouTuber but mostly as a person. Sending you love
Admin Reply by: Rachel
aw so sorry to hear! well, i'm no expert in this stuff so take anything i say with a grain of salt and apply only what resonates with you.

1. let yourself feel everything you want to feel and know it will pass
2. you probably lost yourself for a while in this relationship, and remember that relationships should not be two-half people coming in to make a whole... rather, it should be two whole people coming together to enhance each other. find the half you've been missing and try to be a whole human. you will never need someone to complete you
3. reach out to friends, family, coworkers, yoga mat neighbor, and get your mind off it. remember what it's like to have a healthy companionship

hope that helps and hope you find a light at the end of your tunnel xx

Hey Rachel,

What would be your tips on those wanting to start a blog this year?

Ps1. You’re totes my spirit animal ✨
Ps2. Diggin you’re new webspace 🧑
Admin Reply by: Rachel
i say find a backbone of what you people to associate you with: food, culture, fashion, mood, etc., and write it all down. then sort of branch off that and start creating visuals around it. you'll start to see your on-screen-self form and that is a good jumping off point for the stories and visuals you want to share!

Hi Rachel! I was wondering if you could do a video on your clothing collection bc I absolutely adore your clothes and style. Also, where do you get a lot of your silk/satin tops and stuff like that bc I love the stuff you have! xoxo

Hey Rachel,

What affiliate links have you had good experiences with and what would be your advice regarding the business side of fashion on YouTube? Wanting to get started and nearly paralyzed with indecision.
Admin Reply by: Rachel
amazon and rewardstyle! honestly, don't let all these litttle business things get in the way of expressing yourself. worry about what your message is before you start implementing all this structure that becomes really distracting from your authentic voice.
