I'm Ratanya the creative gal behind Bubbly Noel and for as long as I can remember I was always creating. I vividly remember making my first pair of skinny jeans. I didn’t want to ask my mom to buy me a pair, so I grabbed my flared jeans and sewed them to look like skinny jeans.

Aside from creating fashion I was always coming up with business ideas. I had a few businesses in my adolescence. Like most kids I had a lemonade stand. I also sold hand made jewelry to my classmates.

This blog will cover topics ranging from married life, the happenings of an almost 30 something, my love of food, travel, and my zest for business/design!
