Hey ladies and welcome to Pearls and Pears. My name is Rachael and I am a wife and a mother to a little girl. Currently I reside with my family in a (very) small town in Pennsylvania. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising from FIT and a history of working in both the beauty and fashion industries. Having done everything from set up businesses across the country with their own cosmetic and skincare line to helping woman find the perfect pair of denim. I love the industry and hope to share that passion within these pages with you.

I have lived in New York City, New Orleans and many small places in between. As a result, each place has influenced my style and given me the confidence to express my personality through my wardrobe. While my love of all things high heeled and sparkly don’t quite mesh with my current residence, I make it work. I have fine tuned my internet shopping and stalk my favorite websites for the best deals. I may not live near great fashion anymore, but I have definitely not given it up.

Random Facts:

1. I never leave the house without at least two lipstick options, a chapstick and a granola bar.

2. 90% of the time, I am wearing a bold lip (6 am or 6 pm…..doesn’t matter to me)

3. Yoga actually stresses me out, rather than relaxes me.

4. Chocolate and wine everyday please!
