Happy Friday! Just a reminder to be extra careful with your packages that are being delivered to your front door step these next few weeks (and I guess always). We had about 8 packages stolen off our front porch two nights ago and let me tell you, it’s a very uneasy feeling to go back on security cameras and see complete strangers walk up to your front door and just steal your property. Either sign for your packages or get them off your porch as soon as you know they’ve been delivered!

In better news…in case you missed it, every week leading up until Christmas I’ll be doing a give away of all of my favorite things!!!! Last week was a barefoot dreams robe (feels like pure heaven and so cozy) and my favorite chocolates in the whole wide world, See’s Chocolates. Be sure to check back Sunday to see who the winner is and to enter the new giveaway (all of my favorite lipsticks!!!).

I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. So sorry to here of that happening to you-its a sad world we live in. I spent 4 months volunteering ar a medical clinic in Honduras, CA and I got attacked and robbed by 3 guys in the market. They got away with my camera with ALL my pictures from my time there. Horrible feeling of someone taking your property. Stay safe and hope its made right. xo

  2. I know all too well that feeling of looking back on video surveillance to see who and what happened to a delivery or missing front porch decor, etc… and it is very unsettling and disturbing.. I sometimes wonder if not knowing might be better, because knowing just makes it so real..

  3. Hello,

    Just love your web site! I really enjoy home décor that you have posted! Love the three Xmas trees this year and all of the photos.

    I hope you and your family have a very Merry Xmas! And Santa is good to everyone! This year there may not be very much under our tree as going threw hard times. My Daughter is 19yrs. old and understands there may not be very much from Santa. She is such a great Daughter! She also loves your web site and all the fashion clothes ect… you posted. She always says very pretty.

    Take care,


  4. I’m so sorry that you had your packages stolen, Rach! I really don’t understand what goes through people’s heads to make them do these sort of things, to make them feel as though they have the right. I hope you were able to have the issue resolved and hopefully they will be caught. As for your outfit, I adore that coat, it looks so cozy and great paired with the outfit. I love when outerwear blends seamlessly with an outfit, as though it’s part of it. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!



  5. Hi Rach. Thank you for being so inspiring. Every morning, at 11h (local hour) I stop whatever i’m doing to read your blog. I know, one more follower, but… i follow you for years, and you really make a diference in my life, like in so many others, I believe! (I would love to say so much more but my poor english don’t allow me)

  6. What a violation! I am sorry that happened to you and I hope you are able to feel at ease soon. Thansk for the gifting opportunity!

  7. I’m so sorry about your packages being stolen. That can’t be fun to deal with. I would LOVE a new robe, and who doesn’t like chocolates?! I’m a teacher, so chocolate helps to get me through my day. :)

  8. Oh no! I hope everything turned out well and you got your packages back!

    I love your jacket! I couldn’t decide between this one and another during their 40% off sale!

  9. So sorry about your packages – that’s terrible :( I’ve ordered a lot online this year and worry about this all the time – I’ll need to start making sure I request signature at delivery.

  10. On the days I know I’ll be receiving a package and I know I’ll be gone – I have a neighbor look for it. I’m sorry you had eight packages taken.

    Love to see Isla and Dash doing anything together.

    Please let me win one of your favorite things.

  11. I absolutely love your style! I have been hearing about so many of our friends having things stolen off of their porch. It is unbelievable.

  12. A dear friend of mine showed me your Blog and ever since i am hooked!! Just love you, your fashion, and sweet heart! Thank you for being exactly who God created you to be!!!

  13. Scary that people have the nerve to steal packages like that, thanks for the heads up. I will forsure choose the sign off option on all future packages to avoid this problem! Nonetheless, absolutely love your blog!!


  14. I see you went with the velvet YSL! Good choice its so beautiful! You are one of those people who look STUNNING in black. Wow sorry to hear about your packages.

  15. That is so very generous of you! Kindness on this special month (and alWays) is very much appreciated. God bless❤️
    (I hope you managed to solve that issue re your lost packages)

  16. So sorry to hear about what happened! I honestly don’t understand how people can do that. Thanks for the tip and for the giveaways!

  17. Hi Rach! First I just want to tell you how beautiful your babies are and how happy I am for you and your adorable growing family. I have two beautiful girls 11 months a part going on 11 and 12 soon! I’m missing these baby days of yours!! I actually have a question for you about an Instagram post, I don’t have Instagram hence me asking you here?. It’s your latest Sunday best post in the red ponte dress from Jcrew. I was just wondering about what size you went with and how tall you are. I’m hoping it will hit me below the knees for my religious meetings… I’m 5ft and usually wear a 0 and I’m wondering if you went with your normal size and how it fit you length wise.
    I’d really appreciate your help, thank you!

  18. That’s terrible about the packages!! Maybe you can start having them shipped to your work office so they’re never left? Every holiday this seems to happen :(

  19. Happy Holidays, Rach! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to fill is in all things Rach Parcell! It’s not easy being a working mom, but you do it with such glamour and sweetness! Sending you many beautiful blessings to you and your family!

  20. Love this look!! The boots are my fave? So sorry to hear about your stolen packages!:( people really suck sometimes! We recently had something similar happen with our couch delivery!
