I'm Ratanya the creative gal behind Bubbly Noel and believe it or not I have been in the blogging world since 2010. I started this blog back in 2017 because blogging just always felt right to me and it was a way for me to be creative outside of work.

Last year I married my high school sweetheart and we live in Chicago with my 11 year old Yorkie. I love food, like a lot and my weakness is chocolate.

Expect to see blog post about life in Chicago(events, foods, sights), health, and tips on how to just go for your dream.

Aside from this blog I’m currently pursuing my masters in Strategic Communications and helping businesses with their social media!

You could say I am busy but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
