year abroad :: frustration

*Disclaimer: This is along the lines of a rant.* I’m feeling a little regretful that I lost track of journaling my days here in Libourne, especially when it comes to a writing a new blog post, but when I’m alone, I just want peace. Or, my bed. I just want to shut my eyes and […]

Okay so, I should really be concentrating on getting things sorted for France…BUT there’s a current topic floating around the media that I just have to talk about. I’m entitling this post ‘self’ because that’s exactly what it’s going to be about. I was watching Loose Women a month ago now – youthful programme I know […]

So I’ve hit that horrible point of summer. That nearly the end of August therefore nearly the end of summer phase which seems to result in me feeling blue. At the moment this feeling is heightened by anxiety as I’m stressing over sorting things to move away to France. So far, I’m doing okay handling […]

love :: the greatest

One past experience has chance my outlook on love forever. I can't really say I was in love but who knows. Love is powerful and overcomes you, and makes you blind. You don't see how someone is crippling you until after a relationship ends. "Your intelligence intimidates me" is a line from a guy that I will […]

SELF-LOVE I realised something today: I get over things easily because I've learned to love myself. I am who I am, and it has take me years to be at peace with so many parts of myself, so now that I am, I can't just throw that peace to the ground and crumble. This self-love […]

It’s quite hard sometimes to be a “milennial” (despite being born in the nineties) and a Christian. It’s challenging. Although as a society, we’re a lot more accepting, we’re also a lot more defensive yet on the attack at the same time. So, adding Christianity to this battle already can make muddling through the early years […]

Hey lovelies, it’s so great to be able to post so much more often (thats a lotta adverbs there) on Kulayrosas.  I’m constantly looking for new material to write about, especially as my posts usually begin as a thought, are written out like a waffle, and then edited into something (relatively) cohesive. *face palm* So, […]

forever :: recipe

Hey lovelies, so tonight I wanted to share with you, as promised on Facebook, my protein bites recipe using two of my Forever favourites. If you didn’t know from my Instagram (@ku_layrosas), I’m a total foodie. Although truth be told, I haven’t actually gone “out” for food in a long while – need to change […]

life :: new beginnings

You could say that with finishing second year, life has slowed down. But in no way is that a reality. Despite summer beginning, and my 20th birthday passing (the Friday just gone Thursday eek!), I still find myself busy. But not “busy” busy, you know that kind of busy when you think you’re busy but […]

life :: declutter

To put it bluntly: I am not satisfied with my life. And, I know that I probably never will be. It’s an issue of mine that I genuinely struggle with, even my mum could back me up on that. But, after what has been an emotional evening of illness and minor conflict, I’m typing at […]
