I generally try to have lowkey Sundays. You know, sit in the sun. Have some green tea while listening to Spotify and reading Time or The Economist. But sometimes the universe conspires against you to make sure your Sunday just tests you - case in point, the following 'ad' that was printed in MaltaToday: Let's just take a minute to … Continue reading 4 Things Wrong with this Anti-Gay Marriage Ad (other than the obvious)
Another blog post and yet another book my fellow bookwormy friends. I was re-watching Mad Men for the umpteenth time and noticed that Don Draper's lady-friend, Joy, was reading The Sound and the Fury in one of the episodes. I've wanted to read something by William Faulkner for a while, and the title of this particular work is … Continue reading #CurrentlyReading: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner
Hey guys! I recently wrote a little something for Eve - let me know what you think! Here's an excerpt: Language is a powerful thing when it comes to shaping society and how we interpret the world. The way we speak about women who own their sexuality and refuse to be ashamed of it reveals … Continue reading What does a slut look like?
A while ago I wrote a short 'creative' piece and uploaded it on Medium, a story-writing and sharing platform. I had some thoughts I wanted to share about uncertainty - is it something restricted to the realms of anxiety and sleepless nights, or is it more than that? Is it something we need, as humans, to feel … Continue reading The Two Sides of Uncertainty
For as long as I can remember, the words ‘bachelor’ and ‘spinster’ were universes apart. A bachelor is this cool, good-looking guy who can be in a relationship, but chooses not to. He probably lives in a penthouse with a lot of leather furniture and blue-grey decor, and a turntable playing smooth jazz; a different … Continue reading The Difference between Bachelors and Spinsters

I own roughly 350 books spread across 4 bookshelves around my house, and I have absolutely no intention of stopping until I get my own Beauty and the Beast style library. Am I asking for too much? Possibly. Will I give … Continue reading #CurrentlyReading: How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

I wrote a short piece about keeping a journal for eve.com.mt - hit the link below to check it out, and have a great week. -Kelly x Far from being restricted to the realm of teen angst and that awkward phase you’re oh-so-eager to forget, keeping a personal journal can actually be pretty damn good … Continue reading Dear Diary: 3 Reasons to Keep a Journal (for Eve.com.mt)
Ominous title, I know. But you know me - I like to be as blunt and to-the-point as possible. Today's topic is something that many living on tiny Malta will be familiar with - construction. More specifically, the unbridled spread of construction, cranes, and concrete across the island like some sort of cold, grey plague, and … Continue reading It’s starting to get to me.
So I've never written anything like this (i.e. thinking out loud) before, but hey - why not? I was going through some photos I took yesterday, and stopped at this one. It's nothing special, just a photo of the sea - something which we have in abundance here in Malta, a tiny island in the middle of … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts & T. S. Eliot
Happy New Year, ladies and gentlemen! Now that the festive season and all the food, parties, and self-indulgence it brings with it are fading away into your Instagram feed, we can finally sit down together for a little 2017 chat. Tea? Check. Biscuits? Also check. Alright let's get started. Anyone who knows me will tell you that … Continue reading New Year, Same Me
