Life with Rachael Logo

Single, Nearly 30 and Happy! Mostly..

Let me introduce myself, I am Rachael Hawksworth and I am from Brighton, UK.
I have been Single since January, in 2 weeks I turn 30 and I have a pretty damn happy person. I think I come across a lot happier than I actually am sometimes but that’s just what you get when your a stage school kid who went straight into working in hospitality, AM I RIGHT.
No matter the situation or shitty customer, you have got to get that smile on!

I love drinking, eating, doing activities, trying most new things (never skydiving, noooo) and I really love my cats.
If I were an animal I would 1000% be a cat and I would literally just be laying about being all cute. The LIFE right there.
KEY SKILLSProcrastinating… I tried to think of more but if i’m brutally honest with myself and you… this is top of the list at the moment!


I’m sure none of you are asking, WELL I will tell you anyway…
Well, I have honestly wanted to blog for years because I have always been a fan of reading them and been inspired by so many, in fact at some point I will for sure do a post on my favourite bloggers! But until now I haven’t felt confident enough in myself to do it, to GO for it. Then when I broke up with my ex my whole outlook changed!
I realised I had been wasting my time not pursuing my dreams or ANYTHING I feel passionate about…
It may be too late for some dreams but never to late for me to focus on me!

So I have been planning, overthinking and procrastinating for 6 months when I saw a youtube video with advice on starting a blog, and you know what the huge important advice was…


That simple… just DO your first one. I can figure out my niche and my branding as I find my way AND I realised in that moment that my first blog post is never going to be a masterpiece! It is never going to be a piece of inspiration for the masses that gets read by millions…
This is a process and I have to start somewhere but I DO HAVE TO START!

So finally, HERE I AM! Loud and Proud… Hoping to share my life with others, maybe you’ll learn something, I likely will. Hopefully share some laughs, some sad times and the dream is you create a community of us, to share and support and grow.

I don’t know how you wound up here but I am grateful that you did!

SO what can you expect from my blog, you can expect lots of Health, Lifestyle, Positivity, Honesty and HAPPINESS!

I love your blog. I am 66 but in my head I’m still 25! I have three daughters all in their 40’s and thankfully they love spending time with me. I am disabled now but before I was like you, active and loved to try things out. I think you have made a great start, all this talk of ‘niching’ is overrated, it’s the tone of your blog that attracts people to it, no matter the topic. Carry on and write great posts!

    Hi Belle, that’s such a beautiful name by the way, quite literally!
    Thank you so much for your kind words. Thats lovely that you all still spent your time together, it shows what a great bond you have and how well you raised them. I spend most of my time with my mother too and shes my best friend, so lucky to have her and i am sure your daughters feel the same. Thank you again for your lovely words x

I love this. Theres such a misconception that you cant be single and happy and that you MUST be in a relationship. I’m single too and im happy. We have both proved it is possible!! 🤪
