Rachel: Rachel's Fashion Patch

This beauty with the flowing locks in Rachel and she is the author of the blog Rachel's Fashion Patch. Not only is she adorable ( as you can see) but she has wonderful fashion sense and is amazingly photogenic. Her blog is full of outfits, trends, and stories from her everyday life, and it's an absolutely joy to read. Check out Rachel's Fashion Patch {here}.

Ok love, so tell me What inspired you to start your own blog?

      I have always loved art as a way of expressing myself and when I discovered blogging I felt it would be a great new innovative way to do just that.

I totally agree with you there! So What blogs do you visit often?
      I love a variety of blogs but two of my favourite at the moment would have to be Cool Girl Style and Frocks & Other Frivolities.

And Which designers and/or celebrities most inspire you?
       A designer which has inspired me for many years is Tory Burch. Her journey to becoming the owner of her own high-end fashion line having started from making designs in her kitchen is truly amazing. It reminds me that with persistency and commitment you can achieve anything!

I know she is quite amazing! This is usually a hard question but, What is your favorite item in your closet?
       I love my green Zara bag which I found for a great price on sale from their latest autumn/ winter collection. The bright green mixed with the faux fur panel makes it the perfect statement piece and I love it because of its unusual detailing.

Zara is my second home, so fabulous choice! Finish this sentence. I cannot Leave my house without my…..
      I cannot leave my home without my camera. You never know when you might need to capture an inspirational moment!

You know you might be the only girl who didn't say phone haha. Way to be unique! What do you like do to relax?
      I love to paint and draw in my free time, and of course blogging!

What about celebrity crushes?
       In terms of style crushes I adore Lauren Conrad and Taylor Swifts style. They are so chic and feminine in everything they wear and a great inspiration for on-trend girly fashion.

I couldn't agree with you more there. What are your beauty/makeup must haves?
       Concealer! I am always up late studying so sleep is often limited; my Mac Select Cover-Up concealer is must-have for hiding all dark circles.

And how about your Favorite Magazine?
       Vogue! It’s an addiction. I love how Vogue is a very culture-orientated magazine and many countries have their own Vogue, so when I visit a new country I love to collect a new edition.

Things you love about your Home/Hometown?
   I live in the middle of the countryside which is frustrating at times as I am far away from any clothing shop. However I love all the beautiful scenery around where I live, and I try to capture the magic of nature in my photographs!

And you totally do love, everything is gorgeous! So for my last two questions...What is the most surprising thing on your Ipod?
   Usually I like listening to more indie rock styled music such as The Temper Trap, or  Two Door Cinema Club, however when I am wanting to relax or listen to music while concentrating on homework I like listening to classical music- Birdy’s “Comforting Sounds,” is a current favorite.

And finally, What Tv show do you wish was still on the air?
The Hills when Lauren Conrad was in it! Lauren was such a great feature to the show and it was a great loss when she left.  

I couldn't agree with you more. Everything went down hill when she left :(
