Everyone wants a life well lived, whether it’s eating delicious food, decorating your home, dressing on trend, or taking part in your city’s culture. That’s exactly why foodie & lifestyle urbanite Rachel Joyce launched You Must Love Food.
Everything YMLF covers ties back to enjoying food and life in a real, none-of-that-prissy-bull-shit kinda way. Rachel’s laid back & culturally rich lifestyle sends the message that you can be a multidimensional person–you can love food and working out, you can be interested decorating your home and not vacuum for two weeks, and you can enjoy trying new recipes and still not have a full spice cabinet. From city-chic street style & beauty tips to hip restaurants & recipes, this is the go-to spot for anyone looking to bring some cool, authentic vibes into their life.
Oh hayyyy, I’m Rachel! Since moving from a small town in Illinois to NYC ten years ago, I’ve worked in the interior design, food and fashion industries, discovering some amazing things along the journey to today. I’m all about expressing myself through cooking, personal style, home decorating and living well, but in a totally approachable way (I like to call myself the Roseanne Barr of Martha Stewarts). I’m colorful, have a bad mouth, and am all about body positivity and embracing yourself. My thinking is, we can be real and flawed human beings while still adding sparkle to our world! Let’s love this thing called life together, whatever it is.
Favorite Food: That’s too hard , but right now it’s cheesecake.
Pets?: A dachshund named Speedy (he’s the feisty little shit you see in my Instagram stories)
Married?: Yep! To my high school sweetheart and BFF.
Wine or Beer?: Wine. With a beer chaser. And then maybe a cocktail for a nightcap?
Favorite Quote: “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou
