Reunited and it Feels so Good! My domain has returned!



Hi everyone! I'm super thrilled to tell you all after a long awaited non-eventful battle, I finally have my domain back and running. I'm really happy that I no longer have the "blogspot" at the end of my blog address, and I'm finally feeling professional again. Back in 2012/2013 was the last time I had rachspeed.com, and now it's returned! I lost rachspeed.com along the way... and had to find a way to get it back. But I did! YAY! The best option for me was to wait a year before I could get my domain for a reasonable price, and I'm glad a waited and didn't settle for another address (thespeedylife.com just wasn't going to cut it).

Anyways, feel free to browse my blog at it's OG address, www.rachspeed.com. I'm so glad to have my blog back and running. Now that I'm past some poor blogger/vlogger choices, I feel like I have a fresh start.


Love Always,

Outfit of the Day: Weekend Outfits


Hi everyone! Long time no blog! I decided to start up my outfit of the day posts this weekend, and I'm lucky that the weather has been agreeing as well! It's been beautiful in Kingston and I've definitely been taking advantage of the warmer weather. Here's what I wore friday and saturday!

FRIDAY



My roche runs have been an aboslute godsend this summer and fall, they're my go-to pair of shoes as of lately. I love how comfortable (but also fashion forward) they are. I'm not athletically inclined - but why not dress the part once in a while? I love pairing them with simple t-shirt dresses like this one, they give the look a sports luxe feel (a trend that I'm still in love with). They were an absolute steal too because (thanks to my small feet) I was able to purchase them from the BOYS (children's) section at foot locker and that saved me a pretty penny. Finally to tie the whole look together... a tie around! It's still a must have for me! I know some people are "over it", but I can't resist. I've been obsessed with my boyfriend's flannel for a year now and I've pretty much claimed it as mine. 

SATURDAY


Today was a pretty relaxed day, so I decided to wear a few staple pieces from my wardrobe. I love wearing a simple white t-shirt, and this one even has slits on the sides that give it a more interesting look. I also am in LOVE with these Brandy Melville Vodi shorts - they are SO comfortable and I practically lived in them when I worked there. They're ultra soft and the pretty ruffled edge makes them look a little less bummy.  I lived in fabric shorts all summer, they're really breathable and super affordable (I think I got mine for around 16 dollars). I also matched my look with my snakeskin print Vans slip ons, which I feel make the outfit more interesting and forward. Then of course, my staples - my go-to Zadig & Voltaire purse and my flash aviator Ray-Bans. Altogether, it's a super comfortable outfit without a pair of sweatpants in sight. 

It's been a struggle to keep up with the blogosphere while also trying to catch up in school! Between all the stuff I have to do, I'm swamped! I'm currently trying to figure out how to schedule everything in, and hopefully that means regular posts and videos are returning soon. How was everyone's first month of school! Tell me below in the comments! 

Love Always, Rachel 

(P.S. tell me what you think about my new blog theme!)

How I Dyed my Hair from Black to Light Brown!


Hi everyone! I've been getting a lot of questions on my hair, so I decided to film a video to answer all there is to know about my current colour. First of all, I LOVE IT, it keeps looking better with my skin tone as I get tanner, and I love the lighter feel. My sister did it at home for me, and all the products we used were from Sally's Beauty Supply.

For details about the process and how I maintain my hair, check out my video below!

What I Carry in My Beach Bag!


Hi everyone! This summer has been so fun thus far, and I've already made a lot of use out of my summer essentials. Today, I wanted to share what I pack for a day at the beach! It's ultra important to stay prepared for day-long excursions, and find a balance between packing light and bringing your necessities. 

A few things that I carry are my everyday makeup bag, body butter, sunglasses & my camera. To check out what I carry to the beach in it's full entirety, watch the video below! 


Would love to hear some if your beach essentials!

Outfit of the Day: Boyfriend Jeans & Army Jacket


Hey everyone! I purchased some boyfriend jeans in the winter, and am breaking them out for spring! I always found it a challenge to wear these, because they're really loose fitting, but super comfortable nonetheless. Kept it casual with a plain white tee, an army jacket tie around (my fave!) and beat-up converse (I've had them since high school whaaat)! 

For the whole outfit, check out my video:

How I Style: Circle Skirts (Day & Night Looks!)


Hi everyone & happy MAY!! A huge part of my wardrobe philosophy is to own staple (or statement!) pieces that can be incorporated into a number of different outfits! That being said, I also love to rock prints in the spring time, and that's where this bold leopard skirt comes in! This circle skirt from H&M is a great statement piece to have for spring; It has a timeless shape, but a super fun and trendy feel. I decided to style this look for both day time & nights out. Check it out in my video below! 


Love Always, Rachel

My Everyday Hair Routine 2014!


Hey everyone! I've always generally had pretty long hair since I was younger, and ever since I started Youtube, people have requested me to make a video on how I take care of mine! I like to keep it really simple, adding in a finishing oil before I blow dry because of my ombre (to keep the ends moisturized). I haven't done one of these for the last couple of years, so I decided to do an updated version!

Check out my hair care routine below!


Love Always, Rachel
