22 & I Don’t Know What To Do – Anybody Else?

22 & I Don’t Know What To Do – Anybody Else?

Clearly, from that title, poetry holds my destiny. But no seriously, I’m 22 years old and I have very little idea what I want to do with my life. I’d compare myself to a lost little puppy, with no idea what step to take next. There will be a fair few of you screaming “you’re still young, stop worrying” and while I see where you’re coming from, sorry but I…

I Had A Social Media Detox, Here’s Why You Should Too…

I Had A Social Media Detox, Here’s Why You Should Too…

If you’re anything like me, your phone has pretty much become your life. It’s our way of communicating, catching up on news, checking balances and buying alllll the things we don’t need. For me, it’s there from the moment I wake up and stop my alarm, to me setting my alarm for the following morning, and sometimes after. Most of my use centres around the different social media platforms and…

Learning To Love Myself With Low Self Esteem

Learning To Love Myself With Low Self Esteem

I’ve declared 2018 the year that I start my journey to self-love. I say start because it’s something I hope to work on for the rest of my life. I’m a strong believer in that before anything else, we need to love ourselves so, the aim is for self-love to simply become a part of me. I have quite a negative self-image so self-love is something I really feel I…

My Name’s Kaiesha & I’m A Dog Lover… Now.

My Name’s Kaiesha & I’m A Dog Lover… Now.

“My name’s Kaiesha & I’m a dog lover” was the sarcy comment I was met with from Niall when I showed him a video of a dog jumping up on a sofa and falling between. You know the one. And he’s right. Putting me in a situation where I’d be near a dog 18 months ago would’ve been met with “keep it far away” or “don’t let it jump up…

Bring Back Christmas, I Don’t Like Normality

Bring Back Christmas, I Don’t Like Normality

Yesterday was the last day of the festive season with my family. We lounged around in the morning and lay on the sofa watching movies in the afternoon until 6 o’clock when on came the dreary local News and that’s when it hit me. Christmas is over and I’m not happy about it. It’s the return of school runs, work for those who had time off, and in my house,…

My Goals For 2018

My Goals For 2018

Happy New Year! It’s a bit late in the day, but I hope you all had an amazing start to the year. It’s 2018 and I for one, am fully embracing it. As I’ve said, 2017 wasn’t great so I’m happy to welcome a new year and it will hopefully be the year of getting things back on track. So many people criticise the whole ‘New Year, New Me’ mentality,…

My Good, Bad & Ugly Of 2017

My Good, Bad & Ugly Of 2017

2017 is almost over and coming from somebody who didn’t think they’d live past 16 (don’t ask), this was the year I turned 22. Whilst this is a reason to celebrate, the year of 2017 generally hasn’t been a good one for me & despite having good moments, I’d go as far as saying it has been my worst year yet. I am very much a reflective person though &…

What I Got For Christmas 2017

What I Got For Christmas 2017

Here’s to the annual What I Got For Christmas post. I love these posts, both to create and to read because 1) I’m a nosey cow and 2) they give me ideas of things I can add to my wishlists or gift ideas for others throughout the year. I did very well this year again. My 23 items blog post was a very good idea because I now own many…

9 NYE Ideas When You’re Not A Club Person

9 NYE Ideas When You’re Not A Club Person

It’s the 21st of December and although it’s such a cliche thing to read in a December blog post, I can’t believe how fast this month, let alone year has gone. It’s Christmas day in 4 days. How?! This also means it’s 11 days til we start a New Year so if you haven’t already, it’s time to plan your NYE celebrations. Going out out at New Years isn’t something…
