I’m Rachel, a 20-something from Devon, South West England. I’m studying for my PhD in Additive Manufacturing at the University of Exeter but if I have any free time I like singing (I’m in the covers band Pitchbend), anything associated with Marvel, sewing my own clothes and painting my nails.
Most of the nails you’ll see here are false – I have little nubbins of odd shapes and sizes and I prefer having a prettier (and bigger!) canvas to work with for this blog. It also means I get to do more of it!
If you’re wondering about the sock monkey connection, check out El’s Menagerie – I make sock creatures and design greetings cards featuring them. I have big plans for this little business – and nails are included too!
