About Me



I'm Ratanya, a business obsessed lifestyle BLOGGER & PHOTOGRAPHER ENTHUSIAST!

I am a multi-passionate city gal living in Chicago, obsessed with business/entrepreneurship, creativity, and community.

I  created Bubbly Noel as a creative outlet! But soon realized that I found my niche, sort of. I started it as a lifestyle blog, but have found myself drawing towards business and entrepreneurship.

So with that Bubbly Noel is a place for budding female entrepreneurs like myself to learn the ins and out of business, marketing and branding. Don't worry I'll still include life-style topics here and there!


You can usually find me binge watching a show on Netflix and eating ice cream year round! I also love cuddling up with my almost 11 year old Yorkie pup!



Moved to Chicago

In September of 2017, I packed up my one bedroom apartment in downtown Indianapolis and moved to Chicago! You can read about my move here!



A little bit more about me:

  • I am currently obsessed with eating healthy and kombucha!

  • I love to travel! My dream destination is Italy!

  • I'm an ENFP. Im an extrovert but I can be shy!

  • I am a hardcore people pleaser!

  • Did somebody say Margaritas?! On the rocks plz!

  • I want to open my own cafe one day!

  • I listen to business podcasts more than music!
