About la rachelle

Hi everyone and welcome to "La Rachelle" the lifestyle blog curated by two best friends hailing from Toronto, Canada. Originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica, Jode-Leigh moved to Toronto where our friendship began. After graduating high school we both attended the same university in Alabama, where we were roommates. We currently live in southern California, pursuing our dreams in our respective disciplines; Jode-Leigh, an MBA grad student and Rachael, a Dietetic intern. We chose the name “La Rachelle” as a mash-up of Rachael’s name and Jode-Leigh’s middle name, Rochelle. In the French language, “la” is used to make the distinction between masculine and feminine. We use “La” in the blog title to serve a similar purpose. Rightfully so, we are speaking from a  feminine perspective. The name we created for this blog is a symbol of our similarities and shared experiences. This blog is our perspective on life, fashion, relationships and a wide range of topics that inspire us and impact our lives. Rightfully so, we want to share those experiences with you.

 -Jode-Leigh & Rachael, Co-founders of La Rachelle
