Missing Monday – Corrie McKeague

Corrie-McKeague

A few months ago I launched my new series - Missing Monday - where I feature a missing person case, giving them a voice and sharing their story. I'm one of those people that are weirdly interested in crime and particularly missing people so this is something that's really close to my heart. I've also launched a podcast to go with this, so make sure you take a peek at that too. It's launched today and this week I'm talking about two cases - Corrie McKeague and Jennifer Kesse. However, since announcing this series a while ago I've let my blogging game slip and hence this post is a lot later than it was meant to be. But anywho it's here and it's time to get back in the swing of things. Anyway enough…

Things that we should be taught in schools

Things-we-should-be-taught-in-school-pin

  I’ve often thought about the British school curriculum and I’m not sure I will ever understand why certain things are ignored. It also seems a little bit silly that some of the subjects taught seem irrelevant, it’s like a few wires got crossed along the way. These are a few things that I think we should be taught in schools. Politics – the basics // It both baffles and angers me that people are not taught about politics in school because it leaves young people feeling cut off from the political system. I have many friends who chose not engage in politics because they feel that they don’t understand it enough. It’s also incredibly dangerous for people to leave school and enter the adult world without a developed political knowledge because it makes…

Aberfan memories – a rescue volunteer

Aberfan-Memories

Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster, an incident which claimed a generation, devastated a community and scarred the country forever. My grandfather was there as a rescue worker and I wanted to share his experiences. I had planned this post to go live during that time but I just didn’t get around to writing it, it’s a hard one to sit and write. I guess I had to be in the right mind frame and over the last few weeks I’ve felt ready to finally write it. I grew up in the Rhondda Valleys which were entirely reliant on coal, much like Aberfan and most of the surrounding area. Coal was central to the community and the towns that line the valleys were built up around them, many named after…

Have we finally got a solution to the biggest fashion bloggers problem?*

Bidvine

There is one thing that no one tells you about blogging and that is how much work it takes. In many ways blogging is like a second job to many of us and we often find ourselves putting in the hours. I guess from the outside and to the uninitiated it can look like it’s pretty easy but in reality keeping and maintaining a blog is an exhaustive and hard hobby or career. That’s why I was excited to review Bidvine, an exciting new website that could be the answer to several of the biggest blogging problems. Since starting OhKay-DohKay my blog identity has dramatically varied but at one point in time I was determined to take my blog in a more fashion focussed direction. I did not realise how hard fashion blogging can…

This time next year – 2017 goals

this-time-next-year

So that’s it – 2016 is finally done and dusted, time for a new year and a new start. I know this view is pretty outdated but it’s an idea that I personally really need at this point in my life. I need to feel that something new is beginning. I’ve mentioned this a few times lately but I’m sick of always feeling this way, of always being glad that a year is finished and a new one has begun. I’m sick of old habits sticking around and I’m sick of never feeling that I’ve not achieved anything that year. I’m determined that 2017 is going to be different and instead of just setting myself the usual goals I’ve made a complete, detailed action plan for what I want to achieve this year and…
