Rachel Lyn Johnson (@rachellynjohnson) is an old modern classic fashion enthusiast who enjoys styling outfits, trying beauty products, traveling, and eating food (as long as it’s not slimy or raw).  She has been blogging for 3 years now and absolutely loves it, as it give her the opportunity to earn a fun salary and make great connections with companies and people all over the world.  In honor of Mother’s Day, we are taking this gorgeous mama out for a quick round of Speed Dating!  Apt2B honors moms like Rachel today, and everyday!

Round 1:
Lightning Round

Red or White?
Red, but who doesn’t like a good glass of white in the summer?

What show(s) are you currently binging?
Jane the Virgin, Suits (season 6), and Poldark for the 4th time (I am a sucker for anything British).

If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would it be?
Dwayne Johnson. He seems like someone that would have a good time and make me laugh.

Favorite Color?
Blue for life! (Like my Apt2B Delilah Loveseat!)

Least favorite color?
Orange. I like a good peach color, but I am not a fan of orange.

Lucky number?
16. It is my birthday number.

Round 2:

Bitcoin or Fitbit?
LOL neither. I wish I knew more about Bitcoin to get rich. I have an Apple Watch, not a Fitbit.

What do you collect, if anything?
Clothes. My basement is full of my stash and so is my closet and my son’s room. I am only a tiny bit ashamed.

What’s the most embarrassing song we could find saved on your phone?
I don’t think I have one. I stand by my tunes.

What’s your favorite ice cream?
​I love a good custard ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. If I am purchasing from the store... cookies and cream at the moment.

What is your life’s motto?
Love God, Love others. Speak with kindness and make good choices. Just ask my kids... I say these 4 things ALL the time.

What is your walk-on song?
Ummm anything with a good beat and some Spanish lyrics.

Round 3:
Don’t Even Go There…

If you could be on one reality show which one would it be?
The Housewives of New York City. I just love NYC, and I think it would be incredible to follow these ladies around.

Springsteen or Jay-Z?
Haha. Oh goodness I guess Springsteen.

Stripes or solids?
Absolutely stripes. If you know me, you know that I love stripes!

Popcorn or candy?

What’s your hidden talent?
Pushing a stroller and pulling a wagon at the same time. LOL although it really isn’t a secret. I am a pretty open book, so nothing to hide here.

Who is your style icon?
Blake Lively. I guess she is more of my beauty icon. As far as clothes are concerned, I like to see what Reese Witherspoon is wearing, but my style is such a mixture of feminine styles mixed with masculine lines.

Round 4:
Sinner or Saint?

Who is the most famous person you follow on Twitter or instagram?
Blake Lively.

Who is the most famous person that follows you on Twitter or instagram?
​I would have to look in to this one. At one point Emily Giffin, my favorite author, was following me.

If you could have drinks with any 3 people, living or dead, who would they be?
Yikes. Ask me another question. I have no idea.

What is your favorite smell?
Lavender oil.

What is your biggest pet-peeve?
My biggest pet peeve... I have a few BUT I can’t stand it when things are laying around the house instead of being placed in the spot where they belong.

What is your hometown?
I am a military kid, so I was born in Buffalo, NY but I didn’t stay long. Funny thing I moved back to Buffalo in fall 2017 to be close to my parents.
