Delve Into Me: A Close Look at the Bloggers You Love (010)


PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF, AND TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BLOG.

Hi everyone! My name is Kaci Jade Stevens, my blog is called Kaci Jade purely because of the fact it is my middle name and everyone seems to love it! My blog is based around beauty, fashion and lifestyle but I like to throw in the odd skincare or review post too.

WHEN DID YOU START YOUR BLOGGING JOURNEY AND WHY?

I actually started my blogging journey on the 28th of September 2014 last year when I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, you could probably picture how well that one turned out, and I only recently decided to refresh my blog and give it a new name, look and feel. I took up blogging as I am a talker, that's a given, and especially when it comes to beauty related topics I just will not stop talking, blogging is a place where I can go on and on and anyone can read the content I write, if they want to, and hopefully enjoy it. To me, that's what makes my whole blogging experience worth while.

WHAT'S THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECT OF BLOGGING FOR YOU?

Posting regularly. That is definitely a challenge for me without a doubt. It's not the fact that I don't want to and I feel like I have to, I don't, I love blogging and I would choose it over any social media I have. It's that it requires time to get it right and that is valid time in a day I don't have right now with school, trampoline and what not. I am a perfectionist so I have to check my posts again and again and make sure the photos aren't fuzzy so on and so forth, I couldn't just upload a blog post in half an hour.

DO YOU HAVE ANY BLOGGING RITUALS (LIKE FOLLOWING A STRICT SCHEDULE OR MAKING SURE TO PROCRASTINATE BY GOING ON PINTEREST FIRST, ETC.)?

I don't actually think I do! I come up with posts by myself or reading someone else's blog and things on the internet, I wouldn't say I have a schedule other than posting regularly, at least. Pinterest and tumblr is also such a great place to get my inspiration.

WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER ONE BLOGGING TIP?

Make sure you are having fun. I'm sure most people that choose to start a blog and take that leap out there into the Internet are willing to commit and have fun with their blog, but it is so so so important that you enjoy what you are writing and talking about. If you aren't, then what are you doing it for?

BESIDES BLOGGING, WHAT OTHER HOBBIES TO YOU ENJOY PARTICIPATING IN? WHICH ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?

I love trampoline as I have already mentioned. I have done the sport since I was 4 (almost ten years!) and I am still loving every minute of it. I also love:

• Photography
• Art
• Socialising
• The Internet in general
• Makeup
• Fashion / Shopping
• Obviously blogging
• Reading & Discovering blogs
• YouTube

(DUE TO THE TITLE OF MY BLOG, I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD ASK:) DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU KNOW YOURSELF?

Personally, this could either sound strange or not, but I don't feel like I know myself, yet. I feel I haven't found the true inner me and really realised as a person who I am and what I love. I have found out a lot about myself, obviously, but as the time goes on I am finding out more every second just by someone asking a simple question. I just don't know if what I think about myself is entirely true, some of you might understand, which is why I can't say I know my self, fully.

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…
