My name is Rachele (pronounced "Rachael"), queen of homemade haircuts and hairy pits. I'm not the kind of blogger that knows my cat's birthday or has an adorably decorated house or knows where anything is in their closet. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I am more of scatterbrained, over-worked social worker, feminist killjoy that reads a lot. In another life, I got married way too young at 19 but am lucky that we are still two peas in a pod 10 years later. I love that bearded, nerdy and bipolar boy of mine. He does things like actually listen to me when I sleep talk and say "I have a great idea! Write this down! A comedy club called Lady Bits!". Unfortunately, the idea was already taken.
My style is "fifties by way of the nineties" according to the nosey gentlemen at the UPS office. I am a size 22-26. When I am not glued to my iPad reading a book, I am out thrifting for clothes and records, watching shitloads of Netflix or cooking a vegan feast while listening to any band with a female lead singer. I have approximately one million pairs of glasses and 3 pairs of flats. So you can tell where my priorities are. I also have no eyebrows and I am okay with it. The lady that does my nails might disagree but it's cool.
I am a body positive, fat acceptance and plus sized blogger, artist, writer and vegan. Self-proclaimed fat babe and bitch, I didn't keep quiet when my fatkini photo was stolen and used in a diet ad and continues to blog about loving your fat body, being visible and feeling confident. I also do fierce things with my hair, have a killer collection of leggings and pulls off glasses better than everyone. I am tough as nails and fights hard but also goofy and will not hesitate to do an impression or dance it out. I can cook, draw you like one of my French girls, code a website, crochet, fold my tongue and rock a crop top.
