    This is about more than likes for me

    So I’ve been thinking… a lot. I started Kandidly Kerry as a way to share my journey with whoever would listen. It was basically an online journal because I love writing and I love sharing. I will be honest in saying that amongst my goals when I started were to become a popular blogger and work with some fashion brands and do cool photoshoots and to get involved in events, along with creating an authentic and positive space and connecting with likeminded women, of course! But it has since become so much more than that. It is so much more than the number of likes on my Instagram pictures It…

    A Women’s Day Wishlist

    There’s no denying that us women are incredible beings and I truly believe that we deserve more out of this life than what we are getting so I made a wishlist. This is what I wish for all of us, and so much more. SUPPORT Do you even know how powerful we could be if we stuck together? I don’t quite understand why supporting one another is such a foreign concept. The possibilities could be endless if we joined forces. EQUALITY The same pay cheque, the same opportunities, the same treatment in the workplace and everywhere else. NO SHAME We deserve more than to be shamed and we should know…

    The real price of happiness

    I have followed The Minimalists on Twitter for years and a minimalistic way of life has always been something I was interested in but never properly looked into it or paid it enough attention so why am I suddenly taking it so seriously? Let me tell you why. No it’s not because I want to sell all my stuff and travel the world with one suitcase, I also don’t want to move into a tiny house and live with the bare minimum (major respect to anyone who does either of the above) but because I have always been very aware of my attachment to material possessions, my addiction to shopping…

    What My 29th Year Will Not Be

    In case you missed it, it is my birthday month. I feel like my 28th year has been a huge one for me. I truly feel as though I have come into my own. I have found myself, I have learned to love her and I am so motivated I feel like I can take on just about anything (but please don’t test me on that). I feel like now is a good time to reflect and while I don’t necessarily know what I want for the year ahead (I just know I want it be BIG) I do know what I don’t want so what better way to set…

    What I Don’t Want For Our Young Girls

    I often wonder how the younger generation of girls is doing, how are they feeling about their bodies, how are their self-esteem levels, are they okay? And then I think back to when I was a girl and I immediately doubt that they’re okay. I really struggled and that was without any social media influence. My body and weight issues started from a young age and while I didn’t technically start dieting until I was about 17, I did hate my body towards the end of primary school and right through high school and it never stopped, until now, sort of. Let me paint the picture for you. I would…
