Reflection

Hi, I hope you’re having a lovely week ๐Ÿ™‚ After seeing so many wonderful posts about body positivity lately, I’ve decided to add to the positive vibes currently sweeping through the ether, by writing my views on portrait photography. Coronavirus lockdown restrictions have caused many of us to spend considerably more time than usual scrollingContinue reading “Reflection”

Long Time, No See!

Heyy, Long time, no see – 3 months, to be exact o.O I’m always apologising for being busy, though this time, I’m not going to. Instead, I’m going to include a brief (well, brief in terms of my writing) update along with my hope that all is going wonderfully well in your life – ifContinue reading “Long Time, No See!”

‘That’ Interview

Hi Everyone, hope you are well ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I have decided to incorporate a social media post I wrote into blog post form, in case someone who doesn’t follow my social media accounts might find it helpful… Rarely does a news story interest me enough to comment upon, though Harry and Meghan’s interview with OprahContinue reading “‘That’ Interview”

Moment.

Heyy, I suppose this is a bizarre way to find out whether those close to me read my blog; if you’re a relative or friend of mine ‘in real life’, I’m so sorry you’re discovering this experience here – though please know that I chose not to tell you because I believed that you didn’tContinue reading “Moment.”

Happy St David’s Day!

Hi Everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ Dydd Gลตyl Dewi Hapus, or, Happy St David’s Day (if you don’t speak Welsh)! Soooo sorry I’ve not updated my blog in a while, it’s been a busy few months… o.O I’ve been struggling to manage my time effectively (so, nothing new there) – which has often led to me working untilContinue reading “Happy St David’s Day!”

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone, I’m sorry I haven’t written a blog post for a while, though I have been *super* busy. I hope you’re enjoying the festive season, despite COVID-19 pandemic restrictions ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s been a lot happening in the world of D.E. Kendall! First of all, the lovely laptop I inherited from my late grandmother sadlyContinue reading “Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!”

About My Profession

Hi, hope life is treating you kindly ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been inspired to write this blog post after a wave of requests to write for potential clients either for free or for a drastically reduced fee. I love helping others however I can – within reason. Without writing, almost every form of entertainment would ceaseContinue reading “About My Profession”

For 10th September

As I write, at this very moment, I have absolutely no idea where this post will lead… I’m not sure how much you know of me, so as a brief recap: I was in a toxic relationship for five and a half years, married on 10th September 2016, left him on 20th July 2018 whenContinue reading “For 10th September”

About Stress

Heyy Friends, I hope all is well with you ๐Ÿ™‚ So, it has been an inordinate amount of time since my last blog post – my apologies to those of you who enjoy them! However, as the title of this post suggests, things have been stressful. You might want to get yourself a lovely cupContinue reading “About Stress”

About Finding Self-Confidence

Hi Everyone, hope all is well ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve just seen a post on Facebook by one of my friends and I suddenly felt compelled to write this blog post.

On the Importance of Self-Care

Heyy, hope you’re well ๐Ÿ™‚ Self-care sounds so indulgent, like it’s some sort of ethereal gift allowed only on special occasions – well, that’s what it seems to me anyway. I take care of my personal hygiene (perhaps a little too much, given my OCD for cleanliness), exercise, eat as healthily as I can andContinue reading “On the Importance of Self-Care”

About Dealing with Rejection

Hi Everyone, hope you’re all well ๐Ÿ™‚ Ok, so I’ve decided to write about dealing with rejection.

You may already be aware that your writing will not be everyone’s cup of tea, but are you ready toContinue reading “About Dealing with Rejection”

Something

About Inspiration & Silliness

Two words unlikely to appear in the same sentence, yet have a fascinating connection, are ‘inspiration’ and ‘silliness’. When we feel inspired it’s supposed to move us, to motivate us, to keep us moving forward in our lives. Whereas silliness seems to have little substance in adult life, apart from acceptance on television or duringContinue reading “About Inspiration & Silliness”

About Defeating Writer’s Block

Hellooo! ๐Ÿ™‚ How are you coping now lockdown is easing? I have been using this time to inspire myself and my writing. After nearly 30 years of writing, I have learned many things.

An Update

Hi Everyone ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sorry it’s been a while, I have been *exceedingly* busy – I hope you’re staying safe and well!

About the Benefits of Reading

Heyy ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s a revived blog post from an old page I created years ago. It feels especially relevant to what we’re going through right now, having to stay in to stay safe from this COVID-19 pandemic.

A Revival of Reviews

Hi Fellow Readers ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you are staying safe and well!

As aContinue reading “A Revival of Reviews”

Pros & Cons of Lock-down

Hellooo ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and well <3 So, my lovely boyfriend gave me the idea to write this blog post.

An Emetophobic Review

Hello Fellow Emetophobia Suffers ๐Ÿ™‚ Following is a list I’ve compiled that I am hoping to continue to update as and when I can. It contains listings of various films and TV programs, accompanied by an image explaining whether they are ‘safe’ for emetophobia suffers. I’m improving all the time, though I do still getContinue reading “An Emetophobic Review”

About Dog Walking

Dog walking isn’t only essential for your dog’s welfare, but in my opinion, it’s essential for my welfare too. As the entire world seems to be on lock-down, human interaction is being kept to a minimum. I’m dreadfully missing loved ones I normally see on a daily basis, which makes dealing with anxiety surrounding theContinue reading “About Dog Walking”

On Losing Your Glasses

Ever experienced that irritating instance of losing your glasses, stressing and rushing around in attempt to find them, whilst panicking that you’ll have to live in a state of short-sightedness for the foreseeable future? If so, you tend to end up re-tracing your steps and racking your brain as to where you could’ve possibly lostContinue reading “On Losing Your Glasses”

Millions of people around the world suffer this debilitating phobia, yet shockingly few people seem to know what it is.

It should take seconds to search on Google though ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve suffered fromContinue reading “About Emetophobia”

About Sheep

Heyy Ewe! Thought it might be nice to write a blog post about sheep – the underrated heroes of the British countryside. They graze and fertilize pastures to allow for improved grass growth in the future; they cross-graze land with other livestock such as horses – consuming plants that horses cannot; and, let’s face it,Continue reading “About Sheep”

About The Pandemic

Another grey day here in exotic South Wales ๐Ÿ™‚ Though a new day brings with it further panic and confusion about the dreaded COVID-19 outbreak, a.k.a ‘Coronavirus’. Not only have workplaces, entertainment venues and schools been closed, but people seem to be divided into two types; the helpers and the hoarders. ‘Helpers’ are those whoContinue reading “About The Pandemic”
