My 7th Blogging Birthday & Viktor & Rolf Perfume Giveaway

Today is my 7th blogging birthday. I’ve been writing in this little space on the internet for the past 2555 days. I started my blog in 2010 in my final year at Secondary School and has seen me through College, University and I am now blogging full-time as my job which is just crazy. You may know that my blog was originally called Pretty Petticoats (taken from a song by The Kooks) but I changed it to Rachel Nicole a few years ago!

I decided as today is my blogging birthday, I would put together a selection of comical photos. I’ve seen Lizzie and Bee do similar “Outtakes” posts so I’ve dug out some photo’s from the past 7 years. ย It seems I have some very alarming facial expressions and I can’t seem to resist from pulling faces. So these are some photo’s ย which previously didn’t make it onto the blog for obvious reasons and a few golden oldies.
