My name is Rachel Carr and I started This Is Carrt in 2014 when my husband's job moved to Germany and I decided to give up my day job in the city and go with him on the adventure! I had always loved to travel and write, and was also passionate about photography so one day I sat down and mingled all three of them on this website and my Etsy page. I write about a wide range of things like how to cope with airline hand luggage allowances to what to wear to any destination wedding. However, when I write up a holiday destination, there are more often than not a few common themes linking what are otherwise very different places:

1) Food. I love to eat. It structures my day to day life as well as any trip that I go on. I think food is a great way to start to experience a new culture as well as meeting new people.

2) Value. I don't get swayed by places to be seen and clothing to be seen in for the sake of it. I hate being ripped off. Be that by a fiver or by hundreds of pounds. If an activity or an excursion I go on is expensive but an amazing experience, I will still highly recommend it, but won't recommend it simply because it is deemed luxury.

3) Beauty. I love looking at pretty things. They don't have to have a purpose!

The One Where I Went To Soho Farmhouse

Rachel Carr

This week, I was lucky enough to go to Soho Farmhouse with one of my oldest friends Miss. T. Luckier still, we were blessed with sunny weather and warm temperatures that made this country outpost of the Soho House chain even more idyllic than it already is. Set within rolling hills near Chipping Norton, on the outskirts of the village of Great Tew, Soho Farmhouse is about an hour and a half from London and a completely decadent slice of heaven.

10 Best Online Interior Stores

Rachel Carr

I love looking at the interiors section of any shop. All the better if the shop itself is dedicated to all things beautiful for home living. Over the years, with my moving house every other time the earth goes round the sun, I have learnt to holdback from buying a shop's entire range the moment I get a new abode's keys. I have learnt the hard way that it's better to live in a place first before decking it out in furniture and home furnishings from top to bottom.

So for this week's top 10, I have listed my favourite online interiors stores - suitable for a wide range of budgets.

How To Wear Pink This Season - Top Ten Fuschia Fashion Items

Rachel Carr

Pink is having a bit of a fashion moment at present. I've personally always loved the colour from the moment I picked up my first Barbie. This Spring Summer though it has a grown up edge and none of the items I have picked for my top ten this week can be described as girly. Additionally, it's a colour that has a tone to flatter all and in my latest fashion blog is a selection in several shades from baby pink to bright fushcia so there is something for everyone.

How to Have A Stylish Pregnancy

Rachel Carr

I've tried to keep the fact that I'm pregnant off my blog. For many reasons, I did not want to divulge it, but it's so painfully obvious now (I'm, fingers crossed, due in three months) that I felt I simply could not ignore it anymore. Plus I wanted to write down just how overwhelming not only the prospect of pregnancy and having a child is, but simply the breadth and depth of information available to us is. Whilst writing this post will add to such info, I thought I'd impart some things I have so far learnt on the most superficial of matters: how to dress stylishly when pregnant.
