Hello everyone and welcome to my blog, Life Unsweetened!
So I guess this is my obligatory first post where I write all about how awesome I am and how I’m going to conquer the internet with my blog. Well, I don’t think either of those things are going to happen anytime soon, so I’ll just cut to the chase.
I’m Rachel. I’m 23 and live in a small town in Upstate, NY. I created this blog as something to do outside of my 9-to-5 and as a way to express my love, interest, and knowledge in all things beauty, fashion, and music, as well as my personal experiences and opinions. As a college grad with a degree in Communications and a currently employed Copywriter, this blog will also be a great way to practice my writing and expand my portfolio.
The name “Life Unsweetened” is something I came up with on a whim. I tried to think of a name related to the types of topics I would be writing about, but soon realized that I couldn’t narrow this blog down to just one specific niche. So, I thought of a name that would represent my overall personality and outlook on life- sarcastic and honest with no sugar-coating. Hence, Life Unsweetened. Plus, I have a weird love for lemons, and they sure aren’t “sweet” by any means.
