I’m Rachel Brady, married to Adam, and mum to Arthur (11) and Beatrix (9) and Stanley (3). We have lived in the Peak District for the past 8 years, where have renovated a farmhouse. Ad and I lived in Manchester for 13 years where I worked in digital marketing before I had my son in 2010 and then my daughter in 2012 and finally my third child in 2018.
This started out as a family food blog called Well Worn Whisk – it was a hobby I began in April 2012 one boring Sunday afternoon. I decided to change from Well Worn Whisk to Mrs Rachel Brady a few years after, and I created content about not just family food, but about all the things that make me happy. Like, a mummy lifestyle blog if you like.
The blog wasn’t very active for a few years as I had a really tricky time. I got diagnosed with depression, then ADHD and then decided to quit drinking.
All very heavy things but actually I would never change them.
That brings us to now. I’m excited to relaunch my blog as Really Well Rachel. Someone said once that my blog should reflect where I am at in my own life, and that’s what I hope it does.
I love creating content and sharing my experiences to connect with others.
Really Well Rachel is about homemaking and wellbeing. These are the only things, really, that matter to me.
My family, and creating a life and a cosy home for them. Recipes, living in a low tox, fairly organised and flowing home. This creates such a sense of contentedness for me, and that is so important.
And our wellbeing, mentally and physically, as a family. I am soon to qualify as a holistic mind body coach and also a yoga teacher – and I will be bringing more of that to my content, too. I am also a DoTERRA essential oils advocate. They are superlative oils and have been a key part in my wellbeing journey.
I hope that my content on here and on my YouTube, Instagram – and my sober podcast – help other mums be better in themselves and therefore more able to enjoy life.
Finally, I love to hear from you – it makes my day when I get a nice comment, email or social message.
