Welcome! Let me introduce myself. My name is Rachel Laine. I am a photographer + wellness blogger with a passion for sharing back to basics recipes, personal wellness tips & travel adventures from around the globe. I’m originally from Oakville, Ontario but after meeting my other half in Vancouver, British Columbia we decided to make the move back to his hometown in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Before we delve into the wonderful world of wellness, back to basics recipes and adventures, there are some things that you should know about me. First off, I am obsessed with food. I daydream about new recipes and test my way through cookbooks and food blogs. In addition to that, I am also passionate about photography and adore the beauty and unpredictability of natural light.

The Rachel Laine blog is a place for the everywoman who believes in living a life of abundant wellness. Here you’ll find a collection of things I love; a mix of back to basics recipes that will awaken your taste buds, places I explore in my spare time and people who inspire me along the way.
