MOST women are used to the nine-to-five grind, but 'working' life is stress-free for one stay-at-home girlfriend.
Summer Hawkins, 28, lives in Glasgow with her boyfriend Biggs, 30, but they're no regular couple. Instead of commuting to an office each day, this lucky lady enjoys the sweet life at home.
“It’s every girl’s dream isn’t it? Waking up on that first morning, making Biggs’ breakfast and watching a Netflix movie in my dressing gown I thought, ‘God, this is great’,” she recalls.
Summer – aka Sumerica on TikTok – wasn’t always a stay-at-home girlfriend. The content creator from Bristol was a primary school teacher for three years before attending university.
She met Biggs – a former Love Island contestant from Glasgow – in 2021, and graduated this year. But a full time job is the last thing on her mind.
“Biggs and I were in a long distance relationship,” she explains. “My rent was so high and I was struggling at work, so Biggs offered to look after me. All I had to do was move to Scotland and I’d never have to worry about money or stress again. I moved in with him in June 2022 and I don’t regret it.”

While Biggs works on his extensive property portfolio and travels the globe earning money on social media, Summer spends her days at home shopping, cleaning and catching up on her favourite TV shows.
She says: “Every morning without fail I get up before my boyfriend Biggs and turn the shower on so it’s nice and hot for him when he gets in.”
Summer then makes him a hot chocolate and tells her what he wants for breakfast.
She continues: “Whatever he wants, he gets, whether that’s chicken and rice or an egg sandwich.”
Summer will give him a “kiss goodbye” before he heads off to work, and then she will begin her cleaning routine around the house – and she will spend the afternoon doing jobs like walking their dog, shopping, gym and getting beauty treatments done.
“I have no idea how much Biggs earns or what he shells out on the mortgage, bills or anything else,” she confesses. “It’s his job to foot the bill whenever we go out together. Since we’ve been a couple I’ve taken him out once, to Nando’s.”
People often ask the influencer if she’s bored being stuck at home all day with nothing to do. But Summer says she’s so busy she barely sits down.
“My favourite thing about being a stay-at-home girlfriend is being able to do what I like when I like,” she reveals. “I love to read and spend hours in the local salon getting my nails done. It’s hard to make friends, but I enjoy my own company.
“An average day for me starts at about 7am. While Biggs showers I make him breakfast. Once he’s gone I have my food and I’ll tidy for most of the day. I might do a B&M trip for cleaning supplies before taking our dog Prince for a walk. If there’s time, I’ll squeeze in some online shopping and create a fashion haul video on YouTube.”
Sometimes Summer will put on a full face of make-up just for Biggs coming home, otherwise she’d be dressed in jogging bottoms all day.
“I’ll schedule TV time into my day to give myself time to pour a coffee and have a sit down. Otherwise it’s go, go, go,” she adds.

Summer has her own eyelash and beauty business, and her own YouTube channel where she updates her fans. The hustles earn her about £500 a month, and she spends all of it on clothes, make-up and beauty treatments.
The house is always clean and tidy, she stresses, and her role has done wonders for her relationship.
“Biggs doesn’t lift a finger at home. I clean up his mess, make sure dinner is ready when he arrives and I’ll wash and iron all of his clothes. I prefer it this way. If he makes his own food I don’t know what I need to add to the shopping list,” she explains.

“I used to butt heads with my exes because we both had the stresses of work. Now the biggest problem I have is my YouTube page not loading. Biggs can be in a bad mood but it doesn’t affect our relationship because I’m so chilled.”
Being a stay-at-home girlfriend might sound like perfection – and it is, according to Summer – but she warns that it does have downsides.
“I get the same Monday blues as everyone else. Life goes back to reality as Biggs leaves for work and I start chores again. I hate having to be an adult,” she admits. “Biggs does get annoyed with me, too. Sometimes he’ll finish work late and I’ll text to ask where he is. He can be short with me and say ‘I’m at work’. But while he’s been out I’ve put food on the table and the house is spotless. It’s all about finding that balance between us.”

Summer’s never been trolled for her alternative lifestyle. In fact, everyone confesses their jealousy.
“If anyone’s ever horrible to me I’d just tell them I’m so grateful for what I do. I know I have it easy, but I’m no pampered princess. I’d hate to give up this life. If I had to go back to work I would, but why would I when I don’t need to?”
