Rachel Callman

I’m originally from Florida (but I had no idea we were the butt of the entire country’s jokes until I moved away). In the last nine years, I’ve lived in nine cities before settling in Los Angeles. I love anything that is a miniature or giant version of how it occurs naturally (see profile picture).
 
My 14-year-old self is fainting repeatedly because I have a bio on Jane Pratt’s website.

What I Do, Job-wise: During the day, I’m a Marketing Manager. Then I go home to my cave in West Hollywood and occasionally blog for Nickelodeon’s Nickmom.com or, even less often, sell my art.
 
What I Do, Fun-wise: I read a lot of science fiction and teen paranormal fiction - but I’ll read pretty much anything you recommend. I also do normal adult activities like hiking and spending too much money on going out to dinner. When the mood strikes, I like to go on creative binges of painting or sewing.
 
My Motto: “Don’t throw that away! I’ll paint on it/make jewelry out of it/donate it.”
 
My Anti-Motto: “Be happy where you are.” - Not super proud of this, but at least it’s upwardly motivating!
 
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Dean Cain - Hey Superman, if you read xoJane, holla back
 
My “celebs to make out with” list: JOE MANGANIELLO, Aaron Paul, and basically every male character on The Vampire Diaries
 
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: Right now it’s probably I Love It by Icona Pop, but it changes all the time
 
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Something embarrassing for my young adult fiction book club
 
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: My black jeans. I have three of the same exact pair but people probably think I just never take them off. 
 
Beauty Products That I Hoard: I’m a sucker for trying anything in fun packaging - but truthfully, I HOARD all of it. You can give me an old compact that you didn’t like and I’ll keep it in my drawer forever. 
 
I Smell Like: Dove soap and lavender-scented Tide
 
I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No): Too many times - step up your game, boys
