Rachel’s Staff Quarantine Survival Guide

Club Rachel

Rachel’s team has been embracing quarantine for over a month and while we all miss each other, the office dog, and our lovely studio work space, we must admit we’re getting pretty good at this staying home business! 

How do we do it you ask? Besides the occasional Zoom meeting to gladly see each other's faces, we’re surviving on a few Netflix shows, must-have quarantine snacks, and online shopping, of course. 

Here’s Rachel’s team quarantine survival guide! 

Melanie - CMO 

How would you describe your #stayhome style?

I’m wearing leggings, more leggings and Rachel’s yoga shorts! It’s also a good time to test out future Rachel products like items for our eco activewear collection (wink wink, stay tuned)! 

What new or old activity are you embracing to keep busy during quarantine? 

I’m doing yoga everyday and trying new recipes that are keeping me busy in the kitchen. I also have plenty of time to read and I’ve been reaching for personal development books. 

What’s your favourite quarantine snack?

I have been sipping on juice and eating chocolate mousse. 

What TV/Netflix series are you binge watching? 

I’m watching Wonderland, Self Made, and Blue Planet II. 

What are you currently shopping for online? 

I’m shopping local and buying goodies like vegan chocolate from Bonbon Collection and a Montreal b-board for training. I’ve also been making my own cosmetics and candles thanks to ingredients from Coop Coco and Trappeuses. 

Maryane - Customer Happiness Manager 

How would you describe your #stayhome style?

Sweats, leggings and… more sweats! 

What new or old activity are you embracing to keep busy during quarantine? 

I brought the gym home and I’m trying to stick to a schedule. Also, if cleaning is considered an activity then my house has never been cleaner!

What’s your favourite quarantine snack?

Homemade hummus is the best (and candies sent by my dad). 

What TV/Netflix series are you binge watching? 

I just finished Tiger King (Carole Baskin definitely fed her husband to the tigers). And of course, Friends, always! 

What are you currently shopping for online? 

I’m supporting local shops from Montreal by shopping for candles, skincare products and anything that feels good for the home. 

Laetitia - Artistic Director 

How would you describe your #stayhome style?

I’m often in comfortable clothes like my pyjamas! I only wear my “best” for video meetings or any photoshoots I’m organizing (at home, of course). 

What new or old activity are you embracing to keep busy during quarantine? 

I tried to set up a wellness routine and so far, I’ve managed to stick to it and almost never missed a day! I do 15 minutes of meditation every morning, and 10 minutes of training. I draw a lot more too! I want to use this time in a positive way. We cook every day since we are in confinement and it’s been great to eat well. (I say "we cook" but really I just watch my boyfriend do it). 

What’s your favourite quarantine snack? 

My guilty pleasure is a piece of cheese on toast. 

What TV/Netflix series are you binge watching? 

Right now I'm watching Ozark, I just started it and it's very cool. Otherwise, I liked "I am not okay with this".

What are you currently shopping for online? 

I’ve mostly just been shopping for groceries, but I also picked up some jewelry from Quebec company Horace jewelry, as well as some art materials for drawing and crafts. 

Lise - Business Operations 

How would you describe your #stayhome style?

The one word that comes to mind is comfort! I’ve been living in loose tops and black leggings from Rachel that allow me to easily move between my new improvised office space and my couch. 

What new or old activity are you embracing to keep busy during quarantine? 

I have been bringing out the artist in me by drawing, playing piano and the ukulele, and practicing my singing. 

What’s your favourite quarantine snack?

I’ve been snacking on “Roses des sables”, which is basically chocolate covered Cornflakes. It makes for the perfect snack and chocolate is good for the soul. 

What TV/Netflix series are you binge watching? 

La Casa De Papel and Koh-Lanta.

What are you currently shopping for online? 

I have been shopping for the perfect swimsuit and I have my eye on one by June Swimwear. It’s helping me dream of summer, which I hope I’ll be able to enjoy soon!

Jennifer - Content and PR Manager 

How would you describe your #stayhome style?

My #StayHome style is definitely a mix of comfort and some of my favourite fashion pieces. Leggings and my Carrie Bradshaw T-shirt is just one of my favourite combos. I also still like to rock my jeans and breathable crop tops around my place. 

What new or old activity are you embracing to keep busy during quarantine? 

I’m brushing up on my Italian skills via the Duolingo app. The app is super engaging with daily quizzes and activities, and actually surprisingly addictive. 

What’s your favourite quarantine snack?

I’ve been drinking green smoothies pretty much everyday. Now that I’m home basically all the time, I have plenty of time to eat healthy and whip up my favourite smoothie blends every morning. 

What TV/Netflix series are you binge watching? 

This quarantine, I started watching Ozark and basically binge watched the first season in two days. Besides Ozark, I’m always watching Sex and the City.

What are you currently shopping for online?

Skincare, skincare, skincare! There’s nothing more satisfying than moisturizing my skin and doing infinite face masks day or night, while in quarantine. Naturally, I’ve had to stock up on a few of my favourite products. PSSST did you know your Sephora discount is coming up? You’re welcome. 

What tights should I wear?
