After a very busy few months, Rachel finally got to take a vacation with her family this summer. Last week, she added a new blog post to her official website to talk about the great time she had.

As you all know, it’s been a crazily busy year for me this year and I can’t thank you all enough for your amazing support... and what a year so far!

Since January, I’ve travelled to lots of places in the UK (and further afield!) with the S Club 7 and Strictly Tours as well as going back and forth to Ireland on The Voice - I’ve met some lovely people along the way but have really missed spending quality time with my girls and Alex because they haven’t always been able to come on the road with me.

So, a few months ago we decided to book ourselves a family holiday (just what the doctor ordered..!) and I can’t tell you how fantastic it was to be away in sunny Portugal! I had only been once before but would definitely go back again in a heartbeat. Sun, sea, sand and family, what more could a girl ask for?!

NEW BLOG POST FROM RACHEL

POSTED ON SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2015

Rachel added a new blog post to her official website this week talking about her recent stay at Celtic Manor in Wales.

When things get crazy busy, it’s nice to get away for a few days with the family and knowing how busy the diary’s looking, that’s exactly what I did with Alex, Amelie and Minnie earlier this year.

There are lots of great places to go in the UK for a mini break and the gorgeous Celtic Manor in Wales is one of them. We’ve been a couple of times before and because it’s only a few hours out of London, has lots of things for the girls to enjoy - and for Alex and I too! - it's a perfect getaway for us to chill out and relax.

We stayed in one of the Hunter Lodges which are beautiful - huge and yet they’ve got a real ‘homely’ feel to them. You don’t want to leave and to be honest you don’t need to if you don’t want to, because they have everything there that you can think of, but we decided to get out in the fresh air and make the most of the countryside and all the facilities with the girls. We took them on nature walks, explored the grounds (the view are stunning), golf courses - bliss! In fact, it turns out we have a little golfer in the family in Amelie, who put us all to shame at the crazy golf with an impressive performance!

ANOTHER INTERVIEW ON NICKY BYRNE SHOW

Rachel called into the Nicky Byrne Show again today to talk about The Voice of Ireland and how her team is shaping up. Here is a nice recap of the interview courtesy of Goss.ie. If you'd like to listen to it in full, click the link below and fastforward to 01:39:40 to hear Rachel's segment.

Rachel Stevens may have signed up for The Voice – but she will never head to the jungle for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The S Club star has revealed she has no interested in following in fellow Voice coach Kian Egan’s footsteps and competing in the gruelling reality series. The London native reckons she wouldn’t “last five minutes” in the tough conditions the show would bring.

She said: “I don’t think I’d last five minutes in there, my God. I’m such a wuss. Creeply crawlies, the whole thing – I couldn’t do that.” Meanwhile, the pop singer also revealed she is very happy with her team for this years series. She said: “I’m very very happy with how my team’s looking. There was no game plan, I just wanted to go in and go with what I felt in the moment.”

However, Rachel knows that when the live shows begin, her confidence in her team could change. She added: “When it gets to the live shows it depends on how they are on the night. It depends on their song choices, their popularity, you just don’t know.”

While Rachel has gotten along great with her fellow Voice coaches, she admitted she has a soft spot for fellow newbie Una. “I like them all for different reasons. I love Una because we’ve come in together as the two new girls. Girl power. We’ve got a lot in common, she’s a great girl, there’s really good support between us both,” she told The Nicky Byrne Show on 2FM. “But I like the guys as well for different reasons, everyone brings something different,” she added.

New The Voice of Ireland coaches, Rachel Stevens and Una Foden, are proving to be big hits with viewers this year. Last week The Voice of Ireland brought in 611,500 viewers, up significantly from this years debut.

Pop beauties Una Foden and Rachel Stevens’ arrival on The Voice of Ireland has proven to be a smash hit for RTE – with more than 600,000 tuning in on Sunday evening.

Last Sunday’s episode was the most watched show on TV last week, attracting a staggering average 611,500 viewers and a 40 per cent share.

POSTED ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2015


Feature1

Rachel recently had an interview with the Irish Examiner about health, food and relaxation. Here's an excerpt from the interview.

What shape are you in?
Not bad — I had to do so much dancing leading up to Christmas [for the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special] it allowed me to eat whatever I want.

What are your healthiest eating habits?
I am a lot more knowledgeable about what is healthy for me and my body. I eat a lot of vegetables and I love fish and I’m a big sushi fan. I eat pretty much everything. I love food. I try and control just how much I eat. I think we eat more than we really need to.

What are your guiltiest pleasures?
I love Lindt chocolate. I also love Indian food — I could go on about food the whole time.

What would keep you awake at night?
Not much at the moment. I’m up so early in the morning with the kids. By nine or ten o’clock— very un rock ‘n‘ roll — I’m ready for bed. You’ve got to get to sleep when you can. You never know what time of night you are going to be up with them.

How do you relax?
As soon as the kids are in bed I have a lovely bath. I have a nice glass of wine and it’s time for me and my husband to chill out and catch up and have a nice dinner and then watch TV - I love all the reality shows.

As you may know, all of us at Rachel Junkie usually submit messages for Rachel's birthday project every year. This year, we're doing something even more special. We have gotten together and decided since Rachel is so passionate about WaterAid, we would get together as a community to raise money for one of Rachel's favorite causes.

Donations will be submitted through JustGiving.com and our goal is to reach at least £200. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Every donation counts, so you can donate as much or as little as possible. You'll not only be doing something special for Rachel, but you'll also be helping a great cause.

S CLUB REHEARSALS BEGIN IN FEBRUARY

Rachel revealed in an interview with Herald.ie that rehearsals for the S Club 7 reunion tour will begin in early February. She also talks more about working on The Voice of Ireland.

I'm also really excited about the S Club reunion tour which starts in May and I really hope we bring the show to Ireland. We start rehearsals in early February and I'm really looking forward to getting creative with the tour. I think that's the best thing as an artist - touring and live performances - I can't wait for it.

We did keep in touch with the gang every now and again over the years but it was so great getting back together for the performance for Children in Need. That was brilliant fun and it was like we had never been apart really - all the in-jokes coming back and spending time together was great. Read More

INTRODUCING RACHEL STEVENS GUIDE

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 2015


Feature1

I've been wanting to bring the site back for quite some time, and it is finally here! As you can see, It's All About Rachel is now Rachel Stevens Guide! I was in the mood for something fresh, so I hope you like the new name. The layout is fairly simple and will hopefully be easy for me to keep up with this time around. The site consists of fewer pages, however there is now more content per page. Again, this is just something I decided to do to make it easier for myself. The slideshow header is also really great because I'll be able to update it with the latest Rachel images!

There is a brand new photo gallery, currently using the It's All About Rachel domain, but it is still very much in the beginning stages. It currently has a total of one photo, so it has a long way to go. The rest of the site is still being updated with content also. I'll make sure to keep you all updated on when new sections/information is added. And of course I'll be adding the latest Rachel news as well. Thank you to Saara for the name suggestion! And thanks to you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy!
