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…

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…

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,…

11 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

11 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

Despite all the pretty typography posts telling me to look ahead and not behind, unfortunately, I’m very much the type of person who reflects… a lot. Hindsight is the best but worst thing and there’s plenty I wish I could go back and tell myself. Lessons learned and all… 1. Education is Key – To be fair, I’ve always known the importance of education, my problem is that I like to put…

DIARY | Anxiety, Crushes & Chocolate

DIARY | Anxiety, Crushes & Chocolate

I wrote a post back in March called Let’s get personal and at the time I was eager to start being more honest and personal within my blog posts. My favourite blogs are the ones filled with personal anecdotes or general life catch ups and that’s the content I wanted to start writing. This hasn’t exactly happened and I’ve been pretty bad at blogging in general. So, I’ve decided to…

I Want To Go Back To School

I Want To Go Back To School

There we have it. The 7 words I was adamant I’d never say, yet here I am wishing I could rewind time. I was the typical 13-16 year old who couldn’t wait to grow up, move on and get out of the prison that was school but oh, how I was wrong. I’ve actually wanted to go back to school… probably since the September after I left and started sixth…

Dear 2017

Dear 2017

I’ve said it in previous posts but here I go again, I have a positive optimistic approach for 2017 and that is coming from a self-confessed pessimist! I quite like the ring to twenty seventeen and to be honest, I just think it has to be better than 2016, surely? Also, despite still feeling a bit lost within myself, I do also feel like a few things are clearer and…
