The majority of the time I use rachelspick to talk about more light hearted matters, such as Fashion and personal style, however sometimes I feel like these material topics are just not enough. There are so many deeper and more meaningful things out there to be discussed and I feel like I owe it, to all of my fellow women, to discuss some of these things.
