I am Jennifer Pridemore, also known as "The Rebel Chick." You can call me Jenn - not Jenny. I hate being called Jenny.
For those who are wondering what happened to Jennifer Quillen - yes, there has been a name change! I got divorced in 2015 and went back to using my maiden name socially.
People are always asking me why my blog is called The Rebel Chick. I call myself the Rebel Chick because as long as I can remember, I've been told that I am rebellious. I march to the beat of my own drummer...it's usually a crappy imitation of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee.
All you really need to know about me:
I love to travel. I love to eat. I love animals. I also love Toms shoes (I have about 40 pairs), Impressionism and Stephen King. I hate cooking but love baking.
I got into crystal healing and Reiki during my divorce in 2015, and became a certified Reiki Master in 2020. I have always loved all of that new age hippy stuff, but I never realized just how much it can help a person until I had my first Reiki session.
Oh, and I am a mom - AND A GRANDMOTHER! My daughter and my grandson live around central Florida, and are huge Disney fanatics!
While we used to cover mainly food and travel, we're now mainly a food blog. The pandemic and the shift of advertisers changing from working with bloggers to social media influencers changed the way I work too. I do still travel quite a bit, and you can follow me @TheRebelChick on Instagram for those adventures!
My blog is much like my home: full of good food, fluffy pets and overuse of the words "dude" and "awesome." I grew up in home with plenty of pets (I even lived on a farm at one point!) and we love animals. Right now we're at two dogs and three cats....yes, we spend a small fortune in lint rollers each year.
I left the Corporate world to be more present for Angeline and kind of fell into blogging by accident. Sometimes I say things that I shouldn't say, do things that I shouldn't do...but I try to be authentic and keep it real...what can I say, I am still rebellious. I am also launching OurSunnyLives.com - a website all about living happy lives!
