Welcome to Real Life REBEL, a lifestyle blog, where I’ll be chatting up a storm about all things; Adventure, Trail Running, Mountain Biking, Running and Cycling Gear, Books, Gadgets, Food, Craft, Gardening, Lazy Days, Self Care and more…

At a glance, it might look very feminine, but it’s all about true Real Life REBELS! Freedom, creativity, adventure, fun and stress-free days are top of the list. So, guys and girls are welcome to pop in have a read, and like, and comment if you wish.

Real Life REBEL is about Living Life! It’s about kicking off your shoes at the end of a hard day, and sipping a glass of wine, reading a book, going for a run or walk, riding your bike, cooking up a storm, listening to some jazzy tunes, scratching in your garden, spending time with your family, friends, dogs or cats. Going on an adventure, a road trip by car, by bike, a hike in the mountains…

I exchanged the rat race, daily 2-5 hour commute, and a marketing management position at a large corporate, to live a more interesting and fulfilled life. Writer, designer, creative geek, book fanatic, cyclist, runner, K9 mommy, music lover, coffee freak, baker, wine and whiskey appreciator, lover of nature and deep thinker. I needed to get out, and be the person who I was meant to be, and live a life that matched my interests and personality. I wanted more freedom for my creative work, sport, and life as a whole.

My life now!
