Hi! I’m Rachel, the girl behind Coffee, Creamer & Concealer. Welcome to my little piece of the internet. I hope you enjoy your time here. Grab a cup of coffee, or wine, and stay awhile!
Beauty, fashion and all things girly have always been a source of happiness. However, somewhere along life’s stressful path (adulting is hard), I lost that spark of joy that applying makeup or styling an outfit gave me. I wanted that me back, but I couldn’t quite figure out where to find her. Then, it hit me- instead of just reading beauty and fashion blogs, create one all your own! Coffee, Creamer & Concealer is an outlet for me to share my passion for beauty, skin care and style. I’m not an expert or fashionista, just a girl who loves chatting about makeup and clothes! So, if that sounds right up your alley, please follow along with me as I rediscover my spark.
Get to Know Me
If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
I’m going to cheat and use a phrase. Down to earth.
What would you do if you had a million dollars?
1/3 to charity, 1/3 in savings and use whatever is left over to plan an awesome vacation!
What expectations do you have for yourself?
To be kind, understanding and true to myself.
What are your personal goals?
One simple, yet, not so simple goal…to be happy.
Where would you like to move/live?
I love Houston, but I would really like to move to Austin or California.
What is your dream vacation?
Any place with white sand, sun and clear water. Cocktails are a plus!
What is your favorite food?
I LOVE to eat! If I must narrow it down to a few items it would be truffle pasta, deep dish pepperoni pizza and fajitas. Super healthy, right?!
Cat or dog person?
Both, but since my husband is allergic to cats I’m strictly a dog mom.
What kind of animal do you love the most?
Giraffes have and always will be my favorite. They just seem so gentle and sweet.
Describe your perfect date.
Anywhere with Bryan. We have the most fun exploring new places and trying new foods.
If you could meet anyone for lunch, dead or alive, who would you pick?
My besties. It is so nice to connect with people who love you for what you are and allow you to let loose.
What kind of music do you like?
Honestly, it depends on the day. You might catch me listening to Motown, classic rock, Drake or a mixture of all three!
What has been the happiest event of your life?
My wedding day. I know, I know so cliche. I thought I would be nervous and filled with anxiety, but I was completely calm and content. I had a wonderful day spent with those who love me the most. I wish I could revisit that day over and over.
Do you snore while sleeping?
I say no. My husband says YES! I strongly disagree.
If you had to step into someone else’s shoes for the day, whose would you want to be in?
My students’ shoes to see what I’m like as a teacher.
What 5 words would someone close to you use to describe you?
Sensitive, witty, empathetic, caring and silly.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Of course! Don’t you?
What is your most treasured possession and why?
My engagement ring and wedding band. It is more than jewelry, it symbolizes so much more.
What’s your favorite holiday?
Halloween through the New Year is my jam. I count it all as one huge holiday. I can’t be the only one.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Judgmental people. We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but there is a difference.
Beach or mountains?
Both. Please don’t make me choose.
Are there any causes you strongly believe in?
Adopt don’t shop! I have two rescue fur babies that I love with all my heart (Teddy and Lola). I wish I could save them all. Also, cruelty free beauty. There is no need to test on helpless animals anymore.
Netflix or Hulu?
Netflix all the way.
What are your hobbies?
Loving on my pups, hanging out with the hubs, playing with makeup, baking and teaching adorable first graders (technically, not a hobby I guess).
What is your biggest accomplishment from the last year?
Following through with plans to improve my personal happiness.
