I sat down with Rachelle for few questions on beauty & life....
RACHELLE LEFEVRE~actress (currently on Under the Dome) animal lover, beautiful inside & out, food blogger and all around extraordinary friend to have in my life. Rachelle & I love to wander aimlessly down Abbott Kinney in Venice, ponder life, share thoughts on our entrepreneurial daydreams and share our LOVE for delicious eats along the way.
1. BEAUTY ICON?
Lauren Hutton & Charlotte Rampling. I love women who don't take themselves too seriously, aren't afraid to age and always seem to wear their spirit on their face. Knowing who you are and accepting who you aren't- when that comes through, nothing is more beautiful.
2. CURRENT OBSESSIONS?
Indie magazines like "oh comely," "Darling," "Sweet Paul" and of course, "Kinfolk." I love the originality and uniqueness of content and the photos & illustrations are always amazing.
3. FAVORITE CAUSE/CHARITY?
Best Friends Animal Society. They rescue animals, run a sanctuary, lobby for animal protection laws and also work to make shelters "no kill" so homeless animals don't get euthanized. I've been a spokesperson for them since 2009 and I couldn't be prouder of the work they do.
4. MOST COVETED PRODUCTS FROM SOMEDAY?
The Aquarian Souls floral smudge wand~it just looks so pretty and I like the idea of being the lady who dances through her house barefoot in a flowing dress burning her smudge wand..I also really want to try the Roots Rose Radish face exfoliator & cleanser.
5. DESERT ISLAND DESIRES?
My fiancé Chris, my dogs, See's Candies.
6. HAIR DO?
I don't know how I lived before Kerastase Cleansing Balm and Oscar Blandi Brilliant Glossing Cream.
7. SKINCARE ROUTINE?
Wake up, wash face, Clé de Peau SPF 50 (without fail!), and Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. My current "can't get enough" skin care product is the RLlinden & Co. Hydrating floral toner- I have one in my purse and I also take a travel size spritzer of it on the plane- I always end up passing it around to other passengers!
8. FOODIE FAVE?
I live for Poutine (French fries, cheese curds and gravy) but it has to come from my hometown, Montreal, it just never tastes the same anywhere else. For a healthy fave I feel like everyone in LA always says "green juices" but I actually love them. They're also a great way to wash away the guilt, I mean, wash down an apple fritter.
Calvin Klein's Escape reminds me of every cute boy I crushed on in high school. They must have passed it around in the locker room or something because they ALL wore it.
10. CURRENTLY READING?
Tina Fey's "Bossypants" and back issues of The New York Times Sunday Magazine
11. DREAM JOB?
I love being an actor but I've been feeling a pull towards creating events that encourage more community & support among women for a while now. Not sure how that will play out- I'm in the brainstorming phase of, "How do I make this passion less abstract and into an actual dream I can pursue?"
12. LISTENING NOW?
Zac Brown Band's "Homegrown" on repeat.
13. BEAUTY STAPLES?
Caudalie Divine Body Oil, Hourglass "The Nudes" lipstick in #5, RL Linden & Co floral toner, Butter Elixir lip balm.
14. ROAD TRIP?
For years I've had this dream of renting an Airstream trailer, driving from LA to Austin and just bunking down until I feel like driving home again.
15. BUCKET LIST?
Living in the countryside, eating at The Fat Duck, tasting the Yamazaki Whiskey 25 year, writing a book, owning a bakery/library cafe, finally accepting my upper arms.
16. ZEN ZONE?
Waking up in my bed at home- such a rarity- with Chris, the dogs and a version of bulletproof coffee I make myself with Tava organic vanilla bean ghee.
17. COLOR INSPIRATION:
Black, white, blue denim.
