We've followed the lovely Rach from instagram account @life.with.three since, well, we discovered her a few years back! Her lovely kind soul oozes through her beautifully curated feed of style & travel posts.With a talented hubby in tow, Rach has been lucky enough to explore & share with us some pretty magical parts of this world - specifically her home hood of South Australia! We recently caught up with her to find out what her days look like and where she finds inspiration. Time to meet Rachel, the beauty behind the instagram @life.with.three ...
Where abouts do you call home?
Adelaide, South Australia.
What is the best part about living here?
We have some of the best beaches in Australia! This state is truly underrated and there is so much diversity.
And what do you call work?
Fortunately I am lucky enough to say that I work full time being a digital creator.
If you weren’t doing that, what would you be doing?
I am a qualified Early Childhood Educator, so I would most likely be doing that or some sort of design element. I also love interior design and art.
What does a ‘normal’ work day look like for you?
I get up quite early and help Daniel get ready for work. I then clean the house and feed my fur babies. I will then take Poppie for a walk and if I haven't already posted that morning I will check Instagram and respond to any comments I may have missed. I love my garden so I will also water my garden, mow or trim my lawns, weed etc. I will then check and respond to my emails, edit photos and will plan any shoots - what I will wear, accessorise, where to shoot etc. This usually brings me to late afternoon and I will start to plan and cook dinner! Lately we have been super busy as we have just finished renovating our house and still have some painting/landscaping outside to do. So my days have also been filled with jobs to get that done as well!
What do you love the most about your job?
I love the flexibility of it and being able to work anytime from anywhere :)
Do you have any morning rituals that you try and keep to every morning?
I just try to get up early everyday and get dressed and wash my face so I feel ready for the day! My skincare routine is super simple and I only wash my face with water in the morning and then apply moisturiser and a face oil.
Are you an early Bird or Night owl? Why?
Haha I’m both! I have always gotten up early but I also love to stay up late!
We know you love to travel! Where has been your most favourite place that you have visited to date? Why?
No matter what I will always love Italy. The vibrance of colour, the ambience and the people - not to mention the amazing scenery - will make it my favourite forever. I can’t wait to get back!
Where is the next place at the top of your list to visit?
We have a few trips planned over the next coming months but I would love to visit New York with Daniel. Nothing compares to visiting a place with your love and best friend.
This one’s a biggie, What is the best choice you’ve made so far in life? (Huge call I know!)
I think this was to take six months off and travel up the East Coast of Australia in our van in 2016. This is what was the beginning of my Instagram page and my love of sharing new places.
If we told you you could take you 2 best friends on a holiday for 4 days anywhere in the world, where would you go & why?
I think you know I will say Italy! Haha! Even if it took 2 days getting there and back those 4 days would be heavenly!
Who are you listening to at the moment? Podcasts, spiritual peeps, Musicians or Mad men….?
I have been listening non stop to Billie Eilish.
Lastly, what is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
If you have confidence in yourself then everyone around you will too.
There’s a lot of chat out there about jewellery and we wanted to debunk a few of the myths that you may have heard over the years. From the history of Pearls to the truth about Solid Gold. Here are 8 Jewellery Myths debunked - So you can sleep easy (and let your Aunty know the real deal over your next family dinner) sharing the real facts about tarnishing, Gold, pearls and much more.
If you're a travel-lover like us (dur - who isn't), then there's a high chance you are already following Brodie from @locationlost over on instagram where she shares her life on the road, living out of her **super stylin** van with her partner Nick & cute pooch Quinn. Based in Western Australia, Brodie & Nick share their incredible adventures, drool-worthy landscapes they get to experience in Aus and share honest conversations about a life lived on the road. It's not all cute shots (and cute outfits)!
Nothing quite beats a delicious Soba Noodle Salad. They're often rare to find out and about but when you find one, with the perfect dressing - Oooh wee it's a jolly good feeling, one you want to bottle up & come back to meal after meal. And so with the emphasis on food & sharing around Christmas, I wanted to do exactly that. Share one of my favourite Soba Noodle Salad recipes so that you too, can relish in these flavours & treat your tastebuds (and others!) this festive season.
