the story of my life

Hi I'm Rachel, a blogger, mother and sometime traveller. I am a lover of all things pretty, addicted to coffee and Apple, and I have a major in walking in high heels! My fashion inspirations are Kate Moss and Monica Bellucci.

Today I'm joining forces with other bloggers to blog every day for a whole month with Jenni from Story of My Life. I will be doing this alongside my lifestyle posts. I'm really looking forward to getting together and learning about bloggers that I haven't had the privilege of meeting before. Welcome to Day One, the story of my life.
As a child I was captivated by The Sound of Music, even after my parents hid my vinyl copy of the soundtrack to stop me playing it anymore! I began to believe Julie Andrews was my real mother and I'm still inclined to think so! Were she to come and find her long lost daughter now, I could remind her of any song lyrics she had forgotten as we twirled across the Austrian hillsides together!


I would skip school to watch recorded episodes of Moonlighting and Dallas, having a real fixation for shoulder pads! My love of fashion had begun! Since then I've had two beautiful daughters who I have been able to dress up and teach all the songs of Julie Andrews! Having a career as an educator of children, it offers me opportunities to guide the children to the ways of Disney!


I'm always flattered when my two girls ask to borrow my clothes for a night out. At the ages of eighteen and twenty, they still don't mind being seen with me (not cramping their style!)


Despite believing chocolate should be part of our five a day food group, I enjoy cooking the delights of Italian food. Now my challenge is to make food I cook look even better in photographs.


A post a day…..wish me luck!

  8. It's still a holiday tradition for us! I make my girls and partner sit and watch it with me! Is it still really sad to know all the words!

  9. Oooh, fun post!!! And I got a chance to see some of the real-life scenes from The Sound of Music when I was an exchange student in Austria! :) And I'm a pretty big Disney fan, too! (More of the parks!) :)

  10. Hi Erika

    You are so lucky, I dream about visiting Austria! I would love to do The Sound Of Music tour. Or is that just a little too cheesy!

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Although, I'm not so sure my girls will agree with you when I am saying 'no, I haven't got £50 today for a jumper from Topshop.'

    Thankyou too for the follow on Bloglovin.
