movita beaucoup // full of crap

Welcome! I’m movita beaucoup. Some people call me Rachael. My sister calls me Rough Draft.

I am a writer, dance photographer and ballet teacher living in Halifax. I’ve lived in Nova Scotia for most of my life, except for some time spent in Toronto. I have an English degree (SMU) 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’m generally considered pretty stupid for someone with all that education.

I live with my partner, 2.0 (aka Derek), and our cat Dorey.

Other fun facts:

  • I grew up in the Annapolis Valley. (It was the best.)
  • I’ve been blogging since 2007. (Still don’t know how to format a post properly.)
  • I’m so pale that I look like a cadaver in photos.
  • I don’t own a single pair of shorts.
  • I was born in 1972. People born that year are smarter than people born in other years.

This used to be a food blog but now it ain’t. Don’t worry, four more food blogs are born every second the internet is up and running. Instead of empty calories, this enthusiastically mediocre blog will be serving up a collection of tales that I like to think are humorous and you will probably think are half-assed and entirely lacking in focus. (If you don’t enjoy stories about poop you should probably move on.)

Wow. I thought your post was really too full of scarcasm and frankly, very rude. Being a blogger, you MIGHT want to re-think that. ~ L.H.

I just can’t stand u!  ~ URTOO-UNKIND& TOXIC

Read the recipe. Don’t read her writing. ~ Pinterest User

I love that you spell pajamas wrong. ~ Anonymous

i dunno how else to describe her style other than equal parts cursing sailor and martha stewart. ~ K.


Like a lot of people who average seven gin and tonics per day, I can often be found cradling the toilet in my ensuite bathroom. Alternatively, you can find me here:
