About Rachel

Hi, I’m Rachel! I’m a 30-something Content Marketing Manager by day and lifestyle blogger by night. I live in northern NJ with my husband James, son Henry, daughter Stella, and cat Bella.

I’m a true ISFJ, a pop culture junkie, and can’t say “no” to a piece of chocolate.

I’ve been blogging since 2012 on all things lifestyle, beauty, fashion, home, and more.

About Life Unsweetened

Life Unsweetened is a lifestyle blog — without the sugar coating.

Whether it’s a review of a beauty product or a post about dealing with anxiety, I strive to offer an unfiltered, real, “unsweetened” point of view. Topics covered range from fashion, beauty, and hair, to life, motherhood, and home decor.

Life Unsweetened was launched in February 2012 as a creative outlet. I was able to take all the writing, marketing, and SEO skills I’d learned throughout college, internships, and my first entry-level job and put it to good use in this little side project. Since then, Life Unsweetened has garnered over 2.7 million pageviews, worked with top brands, and been featured on publications such as Buzzfeed and Business Insider.
