movita beaucoup: pretty things for potty mouths

I’m movita beaucoup. Some people call me Rachael. I hope you’ll like kickin’ it here with me.

I am a writer, baker and ballet teacher living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I grew up in this province. I love it – most people here do. I’ve lived here for most of my life, except for some time spent in Toronto. I have an English degree, and graduated from the Teacher Training Program at Canada’s National Ballet School many years back. I graduated from baking school in June 2013. I live with my partner, 2.0.

This used to be a food blog, but now? I don’t know what it’s about anymore. It’s a mishmash of stories, ballet, baking, crafting and the other things I like. If you don’t enjoy stories about poop, you should probably move on. But if you like cats, cursing and the occasional cake? Well, we’ll get along just fine. Have a sense of humour and the ability to lighten up? Welcome. We’ve been waiting for you. (I think you’ll find I’ve got some pretty funny readers. Scroll through the comments. You won’t regret it.)

Have a problem? I’m happy to give you some terrible advice.

I also host some wicked awesome competitions:

These epic battles are WAY FUN. I hope you might consider sending in an entry – and letting complete strangers judge you. You could win a not-very-fancy prize!
