Hi! I’m Bella Bucchiotti!
I am a storyteller, food lover, dog mom, and adventure seeker living on the Pacific coast.
I am a freelance food, travel, and lifestyle writer for MSN, the Associated Press Wire, and NewsBreak.
I live in a small but very beautiful town on an island – I am glad you are here! Through my platforms, I share my passion for food, dogs, fitness, adventures, travel, and philanthropy to encourage my followers to run the extra mile, try new recipes, visit unfamiliar places, and stand for a cause.
I started xoxoBella in 2015 while I was still in high school as a food blog to share my favourite recipes with friends and family. As someone with a learning disability, school was challenging, so I used to blog to share what I was good at – COOKING and taking photos! I continue to post new recipes every week, so check back often. When I travel, I love to take cooking lessons to learn new ways of cooking and baking. Over the years, xoxoBella has also grown to include travel and various lifestyle content. As a freelance writer, I love sharing my passions and stories.
Type 1 Diabetes
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 19. Educating and advocating for T1D is something near to my heart. The Type 1 community is amazing! Check out my Type 1 diabetes blog posts.
Shortly after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, I was also diagnosed as having celiac disease. Sharing food ideas and travel tips for fellow celiacs is something that I enjoy. Check out all of my gluten free recipes.
