Mother’s Day Gift Guide for 2017

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2017 | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

My mom is the type of person that knows how to make every holiday, birthday, and important milestone throughout life a truly ​special occasion. We always had thoughtfully themed birthday parties, handmade Halloween costumes, cakes made from scratch, we hunted Easter eggs until well into our 20s, her house looks like the North pole at Christmastime, and to this day I still receive a handmade Valentine’s day card in the mail each year. She’s taught me the meaning of kindness,…

The Best In-Between-Seasons Pieces

Best In-Between-Seasons Pieces | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

The first day temperatures reach 60, my winter coat is retired to the back of the closet. Never mind that it might be 30 the next, that coat is not seeing the light of day until next November. Bundling and layering can be so restricting, it’s refreshing to be able to let my skin breathe in lighter, airier pieces. Admittedly, I’ve been throwing on athletic wear lately because I’ve grown bored of my winter sweaters and jeans. Last week, I…

Healthy Skin - Beauty and Skincare Products | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

For the majority of my life, I haven’t had many issues with my skin outside of the occasional blemish – lucky, I know! So when regular breakouts started out-welcoming their stay, I had no idea what to do to combat the problem. I’d used the same skincare and makeup products for years and was so out of touch with what else was out there. So I started doing lots of research. I knew I wanted to stick with mostly natural…

My Winter Wardrobe Essentials

Winter Wardrobe Essentials | Rachael Adele Lifestyle Blog

This winter, I realized I’d collected a whole slew of jeans with holes in them and sweaters with (intentional) rips and side slits. I love distressed denim, but it’s not the most practical for 3 to 4 months of 20 degree and below temps. I set out to be intentional about my purchases for these colder months – a good pair of boots, dark denim that could be worn with said boots, and a few good quality sweaters and cold…

Great Workout Gear for Women in 2017

Great Workout Gear for Women in 2017 | Rachael Adele Blog

An ongoing goal of mine has been to get up early and get a workout in before heading to work. I know myself well enough to be sure that if I wait until after the work day is over, I may find an excuse to skip the gym. I’ve finally gotten into a good morning rhythm, splitting my days between cardio and weights and I love feeling like I’ve accomplished something before the sun comes up! Getting it done first…
