Thanks for visiting Meraki. I’m Rachel Silva, a New York-based lifestyle guide editor. Meraki is a Greek word that means “to do something with soul, to put something of yourself into your work.” This blog is just that for me – a visual diary that began in 2017 as a creative outlet after long days chasing heavy news stories as a reporter.

Today, Iive in Long Island City with my husband and baby boy, sharing a peek into the world of one modern day woman – including fashion finds, places that inspire, and busting out a few dance moves along the way.

Thank you for following along and sharing my passion for all things Meraki. Shoot me an email me at, or find me on Instagram and Pinterest. Happy reading!
