The Journey Begins

It seemed like in the blink of an eye I went from travelling the world singing, not having a care (or plan) in the near future to being in my late 40s struggling with employment and hormones. WTF?!?!

What do you mean I can’t shop at Forever 21 anymore? They certainly don’t carry size 12-14 with a little MORE midriff covereage.

Cue emotional breakdown.


I was recently let go from a full time job. AGAIN. This one didn’t hurt like the career lay off of 2015. This time I got mad. I cried. Then I got the hell over it. It only took 24 hours for me to feel the kick in the ass I needed. My one night pity party was masked with wine, pizza, scotch and I was slathered with essential oils.

There. I said it.

I’m a hippy at heart and this is my journey of being 40 something, losing (what felt like) everything, starting over and finding a new path. A path filled with hot flashes, mood swings and emotional rollercoasters. I decided to create this blog as a safe place for me to share ideas and products that have helped me get through life while losing not 1 but 2 jobs, my savings, my mind and even some friendships in the process. All while I rebuilt.

I am still rebuilding. My happiness. My soul. My heart.

Essentially Rachelle is me.

My journey.

My ideas. My DIY tips. My oily recipes. My ways of living a non toxic life in a very toxic world.

Thank you for joining me.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
