About the Author // First Post

        Hi guys! This is my first post, very exciting and bare with me!

I'm Rachel, 26 years young, living in Overland Park, KS. A little over  year ago I rededicated my life to Christ. Since then, major desires have changed in my heart. By nature I'm a pretty private person, I prefer to sit back and observe. I'm also an all or nothing kinda girl, meaning I'm 100% into something or totally uninterested. Typical type A personality, however recently I've allowed myself to embrace the creative side. Career wise I'm in sales and I love it; being competitive and striving to be #1 fuels me. Creating this blog is my first attempt at marrying all the things I enjoy and am good at. My focus for this blog is to encourage and inspire women to embrace and be truly confident in themselves. By the glory of God I've overcome obstacles and as hard as it is for me to be's even harder to settle for mediocrity. 

Quick Facts: 

-I hate eggs & seafood
-the beloved pumpkin spice latte is too sweet for these taste buds
-nail polish obsessed
-love a bold lip + messy bun (clearly, lol)
-one baby brother (who's 21)
-I love time period shows/movies :: Pride & Prejudice, Downton Abbey

Speaking of time period, if I wrote a novel it would most certainly be set in the late 1800's/ early 1900's. Of course I'd have a heroine, a mix between Marie Antoinette & Elizabeth Bennet. She plays by her own rules, never needing a man to be her conqueror. 

Thanks to Bailey Jean for putting together the Blog-tember Challenge! Check out her blog for the rest of the challenge!
