DESIRE - What If What You Want Is Wrong?

DESIRE What If What You Want Is Wrong KellyMartinSpeaks

Are you frustrated by lack in your life? Are those things you really want just not happening?

It’s easy to get attached to a specific outcome to make us happy. We’re surrounded by affluence in the West and encouraged to pin all our hopes and dreams on the outer world. While we might believe that happiness lies within, inwardly many of us may ‘secretly’ hope for circumstances to change in the way we want, so that we can be happy, but this never works.

You Need To See These Amazing Oracle Cards by Alana Fairchild -WIN

COMPETITION REVIEW Divine Circus and Mother Mary Oracle Cards by Alana Fairchild

I love oracle cards. Especially decent cards with great imagery and wisdom. I grew bored with another creator who has swamped the oracle card market (no names mentioned because I'm sure you know who they are) and the lack of depth in those cards.

How To Mindfully Love Without Getting Lost

how-to-mindfully-love-without-getting-lost-couple

No one can fill the void in your heart, only love does this. Not love from outside, but love from within.

In my past, I was a needy, attached, jealous lover. I was in a state of perpetual ‘not good enough’ and so I attracted lovers who did not value me for who I was. I attracted lovers who reinforced my feelings of not deserving in my life. I lived most of the time in an imaginary future full of ‘hope’ and wishful thinking. I was in love with the idea of being in love. I mentally criticised my previous lovers for all their flaws but most of the time I was actually criticising myself for my own flaws.

Is Your Hormonal Cycle Reflecting The Death Of Your Dreams?



For as long as I can remember my menstrual cycle just hasn't felt right.

My period started at age 13 and every month it came with extreme cramping. Back then I don't think doctors knew much about PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) or conditions like endometriosis and so I took 2-3 days off school when it came on during a school week. I would cry, rolling around on the floor at home while my stomach, back, legs, everything hurt and hot water bottles and even painkillers were simply not cutting it.

My BIG Leap From Fear To Inspirational Public Speaking

public speaking anxiety phobia radio interview

As many of you following may know, this blog was set up by a once shy, introverted woman who was scared to speak, scared to be seen and scared to be heard. Anxiety drove my life and prevented me from accomplishing many things my heart and soul were urging me to do.

At University I avoided presentations. At school, I hid at the back. In the schoolyard, I stopped speaking socially in groups because I feared how others would view my words, how I spoke and who I was. I was overrun with a perpetual state of fear and anxiety.

Is Your Back in Need of a 'Healthy Back Bag'? Review and Competition

Healthy Back Bag Company Giveaway BIG

I readily admit I have a serious girl crush on Healthy Back Bags. To many, they may not appear to be as fashionable as other bags, but I have lost count of the number of positive compliments I have received when I wear one of my bags I have at home. 

I first came across Healthy Back Bags in 2013 when I reviewed a Coral Microfibre here. At the time I was having back issues and really wanted to give my back a break from heavy backpacks and handbags which were so unevenly distributed on my body that they simply caused me shoulder pain where the strap was. So in came my first Healthy Back Bag and it is pretty much the only bag I use now.  

So as part of my 10 year blog anniversary I contacted some of my favourite companies from past reviews to see what's new and to also request a bag as a giveaway prize for you, my loyal readers.

No Added Sulphites Wine, Is It Better? Competition and Review

Vintage Roots No Added Sulphites Red Wine

Hey there and welcome to 'not dry-January' at Kelly Martin Speaks. I prefer to drink in moderation all year round so no dry January in this household and anyhow organic wine and liqueurs never seem to have the awful side-effects other drinks have for me.

As someone who tends to go red in the face at your usual supermarket non-organic wine, I much prefer wine without all the extra additions and a good quality red is better than a cheap bottle of plonk just for the sake of it.

Vintage Roots sent me this great bottle of red (and other samples) to celebrate my 10 year blog anniversary and what better way than to toast the New Year and simply coming into a new beginning in 2017.
