Just last week, Minty Jungle had the great pleasure of receiving a visit from the super sweet Rachel Lynch of I Hate Blonde! Of course we were over the moon about finally meeting this fashionista in person. This girl is definitely the epitome of a Minty Muse! Naturally, we didn’t want to miss out on a little Q&A with this blonde bombshell, so we asked her some fun (and random) questions to get inside the mind of one of our fave fashion gurus.
“I’m Rachel Lynch! I’m a full-time fashion blogger living in the East Village of Manhattan. I love Starbucks, champagne, running, and big shoes. My hometown is East Lansing, Michigan. When it comes to my style inspirations, I just pull from whatever’s inside me. I stay true to my inner voice. When I go out and shop, I consider where I’m going, if i’ll be shooting my buys for the blog, and if it matches the “I Hate Blonde” aesthetic.”
First thing you do in the morning?
“Kiss my boyfriend”
What are your guilty pleasures?
“Those little chocolate hippos i’ve been buying at the grocery store– those are so good! They’re like a German candy. And… champagne!”
Sweet or salty?
Cant live without _______.
“Netflix! I really love Girls and The L-word, but recently I’ve been getting into Transparent. It’s a new amazon series. It’s a drama that went to the Golden Globes.”
Places you’d like to visit and why?
“I wanna visit Portland, Oregon. It’s where Nike was started and has their headquarters. I’m a big runner, so I’d love to go out and just run around Portland. It would be so relaxing to stay at a cabin there and have a weekend to myself, turning off my phone and reading books.”
Man crush and woman crush?
“Man crush– that’s so hard. i’ll just say my boyfriend! I don’t think of other boys now. Woman crush– Ooh, so many woman crushes! I’d have to say Angelina Jolie, Kate Moss and Mary-Kate Olsen. Just Mark-Kate and not Ashley. Ashley’s not as chic and Mary Kate’s just awesome!”
If you could choose anyone to be– fictional OR real, who would you be?
“Ooh, i totally would be Jessica Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote– That old show. She writes mystery novels and solves murders. I’d be like a detective.”
We hope you loved getting to know Rachel as much as we did! Check out photos below to see the outfits she rocked whilst in the Minty Jungle and check out her blog post here.
