When did you move out of your parents' house and was it something they were okay with when you moved away and got your own apartment? Is it expensive to live in California?

Hi Raych! I have an issue that I need advice on and considering how confident you are I think you are the right person to ask. Unfortunately for medical reasons I have to get braces for 2 years. I am a 19 year old with a self esteem as low as it gets and I think the braces will make me miserable and not want to go out etc. I don't know how to emBRACE them. lol what do you think??

omg girl, it's a part of life. look at i-d, they make braces look cool: https://i-d.vice.com/en_uk/article/mbeyy3/tbt-the-best-fashion-braces-moments just smile as big as you can. trying to hide it only reeks more of how you feel about it, own it. you have no other choice.

go through your whole closet and clean out everything you don't relate to anymore (expect to get rid of a lot of items), then slowly and smartly build from there

Hi Rachel! Thank you for continuing to create and inspire - everything you put out comes across as extremely authentic and original. I really respect that about you! You truly stand out amongst the whirlwind of information and content on the internet. Anyways, I'm interested in your work with Adobe and how you got started with creating content within that realm (such as your new blog content!! graphics/design/interactive art...). Was this something you studied in school (what did you study?) or did you learn it on your own time? Do you have any recs for someone interested in this? Thanks xx

Aw thank you Katie! I've had a blog for 10+ years now and I guess I've always had a liking to the internet. there was this site called neopets that I learned to code on and make graphics, idk, never studied it, just have a curiosity to learn how to do things and did it.

Hi Rachel, you're site looks absolutely fantastic and is super original. I love how you are able to more images around as if a live mood board. I was wondering if you designed/coded the site yourself and where you drew your site inspiration from. I'm a fan of fab site design. 🙂

thank you! there was no direct inspiration that I was trying to emulate other than this is how I organize my thoughts and wanted to translate that through visuals. alan and I worked together to make this and many iterations of it!

Do you ever social media stalk someone that you're not really friends with anymore? I feel like this is kinda unhealthy-almost like its a guilty pleasure. Or is it just curiosity? What would ur advice be?

Admin Reply by: Rachel
Totally hahha, I think it's natural to have the curiosity to check in on someone. But I think it all depends on what your relationship with the person was and I think if there's a lingering wonder of how healthy these habits are, then it's probably leaning towards one end of that question.

Admin Reply by: Rachel
i feel like if you're outgrowing your friends, it usually also comes with having new things that you're interested in. sometimes it helps to go to gatherings (like yoga class, or a fashion event, or whatever) that would have people with common interests and start introducing yourself! transitions will happen naturally whether your new / old friends are in your life.

I'm about to embark on a long journey to Vietnam, alone. I am nervous, terrified and excited...do you have any solo travel tips / ways to cure homesickness, and ways to remain present while in a different setting?? I'm afraid that my anxiety will keep me from living life to the fullest while I'm overseas:(

Admin Reply by: Rachel
Yes! You have to pack some home amenities, like a little travel candle, maybe some photos of loved ones. It always helps to sprawl out at the hotel or airbnb to feel like you're living. Traveling alone can feel like a blur but remember that it'll go by sooner than you know it, so try to admire the luxury you were given to travel 🙂 also, vietnam is SO beautiful, you will love it. Try to make friends with locals too x
