I’m Rachel and Rachelspick.co.uk has been my little place on the internet for 6 years now. It all started as a way to get my foot in the door to the fashion world, a place to get noticed and express my love for all things fashion and style. Back then, I had no idea about the world of blogging or the woman I wanted to become. But 6 years on I have discovered my personal style, built a kick arse work ethic and created a blog to be proud of.
Starting from humble beginnings, with very little knowledge of the fashion industry, apart from a flick through Grazia magazine and the odd fashion tip from Gok Wan. I was a complete fresh slate. However, fast forward 6 years and I’m now studying a degree in Fashion Buying, my dream job, and spend my time trauling through trend prediction packages and creating mood boards. I revolve my life around my dream career and this blog is a creative hobby, which just happens to be based around that too.
I suppose you could say I’ve added a good few scratches to that fresh slate now!
Over the last few years, I’ve really found my own personal style, and my love for a chic aesthetic has lead me to want to build a classic, yet on trend wardrobe. However, sometimes being a student get’s in the way. So, from now on, my key focus is still building that wardrobe, but doing it affordably. Creating a beautiful wardrobe, that doesn’t break the bank and showing my love for the some of the hero’s on the high-street, along the way.

In 2016, I took the plunge to invest in a professional blog design, through the help of Pipdig, and my own domain name. Not only did this make my blog look more professional, it also attracted a lot more brands and opportunities. That year marked so many new brand collaborations, including working with Zaful, MAHI Leather, Milly Bridal, AisleStyle and CLC World Travel. Since that moment, I have continued to work with some of those brands, and also form new relationships, including recently becoming a product ambassador for NA-KD Fashion. Something I’ve been working to become since my blog started, and an achievement I’m really proud of.
Today, as you flick through my blog you will find a new era of Rachelspick, as I create a more professional and high quality website that truly reflects my aesthetic and personal style.
I’m currently working with photographers to improve my image’s, both the quality and the story behind every one. As well as building Rachelspick, as a hub for Fashion and Style; providing posts on my own personal style, as well as trend, events and the essentials you need in your wardrobe every season.
There is also a new Inspiration page, that will be updated monthly. This showcases an online mood board of all the images and quotes that are inspiring me that month. It’s a great thing to flick through, if you only have a few minutes and want to get a taste of my style and mood.
I’m always looking for new opportunities to work with both brands and bloggers, to create new content. It’s a part of my blog I really want to develop during the rest of 2018 and during next year too. So, I would love you to get in touch, if you enjoy what I do and the content I post.
