Kicking Sunrise

Hello and welcome back to my blog !

I am coming back at you with a music blog post this time around. I always look new music to listen to. So through scrolling my twitter time line a few months back. I found myself taking an interest in what other people were listening too. 

A few days passed before I finally caved and headed over to spotify to check out Kicking Sunrise. That was the start of what has become an amazing friendship with the members of the band. 

So in this blog post I am going to give you the low down on Kicking Sunrise and their music. Also at the end will be links to all their social media outlets so you can keep up to date. 

So grab your self a cup of tea/coffee or whatever your drink of choice is and have a read. Thank you for your continued support in reading these posts.

Kicking Sunrise Releases?

So far the band have released the following :

Being a Kicker is like having 4 brothers who you can go and talk to. Not only that but you make friends with other people of the fan base. I have made a few new friends from having a common interest  in the band and their music. Also a lot of the friendships I have are one I have kept through being in multiple fan bases.  I am lucky enough to say that I have had a skype with the Kicking Sunrise members where we had  chat and got to know each other.  Having that face to face chat , you soon discover that you have more in common that what you originally thought. 

In my opinion I see Kicking Sunrise doing great things musically, I am so looking forward to seeing what is next for the,. As I know they always go from strength to strength.  They are a band to be reckoned with. They have all the talent and the potential to be the next big thing. As I believe that their is a space in the music industry that Kicking Sunrise can fill very well. The songs they release are very very catchy. The latest release Take It All is my favourite. It has the right mix of all the elements you need to comprise an amazing song. Trust me Kicking Sunrise will be a household name in the very near future.

Get To Know Me !

Hello and Welcome Back!

Yes it has been a while since I have posted anything.  I think that is due to having a writers block for a couple of months. Where I really didn't feel like writing anything. Until someone recently told me that I have a talent for writing. So I've taken a break to re evaluate and come up with some ideas. 

So I decided this post should be a get to know me as the title of this states. So that you can get to know me a little bit better. 

Get to know me !

Questions From Friends

Questions from Maleia

Would you rather go back 5 years in the past or 5 years into the future?

Ooooh this is a tough one to answer. But....... I would go back 5 years in the past. This is purely down to having done things I would have done differently. Also going back five years would mean I would have the most important person back in my life (yes my mum)! This is the main reason I would go back in time. So that we could create more memories and so that I could hug her and tell her everyday how much I am glad she is my mother. 

Most inspirational person in your life?

Another tough one to answer. But I have a lot of inspirational people in my life at this current moment in time. The majority of them who I have met through using various different social media outlets. So to answer this question I'd say everyone who I have communicated with through the various social media outlets I use have inspired me in various ways. From being able to open up to people when I've found it hard to let go of emotions etc. The main inspirational people in my life are Amber Tiana , Kalijah Wayne , Nelson Santos , Jalin Cortez, Alex Odon , Lee Brown, Maleia Dunn , Rockaboo, Jeanette Watts, Bobbi, Sonja-Leigh , Carman etc. These are just a few of the important and inspirational people that I have in my life . I thank my lucky stars for having these people come into my life when I didn't know I needed the extra morale support and guidance. 

Favourite quote you've heard?

This is an easy one to answer "If everyone did just a little bit of good everyday , then everyday would be a good day for everyone" Amber Tiana

What is the best lesson you've learned so far?

The best lesson I have learned so far, is no matter how hard you are on your self.  You are in control of your own happiness, goals and dreams. Also that life is too short to not chase any dreams, ambitions and/or goals. If you have a passion for something then you should give it your all and keep progressing. 

What's the best piece of advice you've gotten and who was it from? 

I get so much advice from various people that I have communicated with through the social media platforms that I use. I'd say that the best piece of advice I've got is from Kalijah Wayne. He told me that i should always tell myself how amazing I am and how amazing life is. As I am very loved by the people I have in my life. 

Favourite genre of music?

I like all genres of music . This is inclusive of pop, country, rnb, soul, gospel etc. 

Favourite food?

I like so many different foods , so to just pick one is already hard enough. But......... I love me some Italian food. Garlic bread, Pasta and Pizza are my favourite types of Italian food. 

Favourite colour?

it's a tough choice but I'm going to say purple. 

Favourite movie?

I have watched so many movies over the years. But I'd say that Sister Act 2 Back In The Habit is my favourite movie. 

So I think I am going to end this blog post here as I usually ramble on and often repeat myself. So I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for reading through this blog post. Hopefully you know a little bit more about me.

Much Love

My Life with Coeliac Disease

Welcome Back !👋👋

First of all , I want to say hello to all my readers who have been waiting for a new blog post for a while.  An today is the day I bring you new content after hitting a writing block for a while and not really knowing what to write about.  So, I am back and I'm hoping to get into a blogging schedule where I will have a couple of posts up a week. 

So , as the title states this blog post is going to be about me and my life with the Coeliac Disease. 

You might be reading this thinking what is Coeliac Disease , well let me answer that for you, in this blog post ! 

I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease when I was in hospital for something very serious. I was sent for a biopsy. It took a while to get these results back. But once I had them back once I was home from the hospital and after a few months. I was made aware I had Coeliac disease. 

So since being diagnosed over 3 years ago , I have had to switch up my eating habits. To eating foods which contain the following cereals.  I have got good at making various different dishes that I know I can eat without the fear of being glutened.  So with the foods I eat , I am now careful to make sure that they are safe for me to eat. This also includes takeaway food and eating out at restaurants for special occasions. 

What is Coeliac Disease ? 

Coeliac Disease is an auto immune condition It is a very common digestive condition. Coeliac disease is where the small intestine  starts go inflamed and it stops being able to absorb the nutrients from food. 

Coeliac disease can come with a range of symptoms which are inclusive of diarrhoea, bloating and abdominal pain. 
Coeliac disease is caused by a reaction to gluten , which is a dietary protein which can be found in three types of cereals . These are barley, rye and wheat. 

Gluten is found in any food that contains the above cereals. this is inclusive of pasts , cakes , bread , sauces , breakfast cereals etc. Also , most beers are made from barley.

Symptoms of Coeliac Disease

The consumption of food containing gluten can trigger many of the following gut related symptoms . 
 Which are inclusive of the following:

Abdominal pain

Also coeliac disease can cause more general symptoms, these are inclusive of the following:

an itchy rash
fertility problems 
nerve damage 
unexpected weight loss

Causes of Coeliac Disease 

Coeliac disease is a condition that it falls in to the category of an autoimmune one. This is the process where the immune system , the human body's natural defence mechanism against infection , attacks it's healthy tissue mistakenly. 

The immune system mistakes various different substances found with in the gluten of many foods as a threat to the body and it attacks them.  This damages the surface of the small intestines, which then disrupts the human body's ability to absorb the nutrients from the food.  It is not clear  what cause the body's immune system to do this. But it is a mix of a combination of genetics and the environment that appear to play a detrimental part,.

Coeliac disease is not an allergy or an intolerance of gluten. 

At current moment their is no  cure for coeliac disease. Switching to a gluten-free lifestyle will help to control the symptoms. It will also help to prevent and consequences of the condition which can be long term.  Even if symptoms are not existent or are of the mild nature , changing you're eating habits is still recommended. As if you continue to consume gluten it can lead to serious complications. It is imperative that you make sure you're gluten free lifestyle is as healthy and balanced as possible.  Over the past few years their has been an influx of gluten free products that are readily available in many stores and also on prescription. 

"Coeliac disease is a very common autoimmune condition that affects approximately 1 in ever 100 people in the UK"

Their is a lot of readily available information on Coeliac disease, I hope by reading this short post, you have gained some knowledge into Coeliac Disease and the symptoms it has .

If you enjoyed reading this post please leave a comment , don't forget to share this with anyone who you think could benefit from reading this. Also if you  have any questions , feel free to leave them in the comments box and I will answer them in a You Tube video. 

Many Thanks

Who is Katja Glieson ?

Katja Glieson is an unsigned Australian recording artist who moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams. 

Where it all began? 

Katja was born in Melbourne , Australia . The talented Austrailian born singer made a very difficult decision to leave her home town and her family and friends to go and start a new adventure , an adventure which would be her music career.  Katja had to work very hard to get to her goal of moving to Los Angeles in order to embark on her music career. Katja saw her self having to work a couple of jobs and save everything she made so she could make the move to the land of opportunity (Los Angeles). 

Katja Gigs/Performances

The online fanmily name that Katja fans go by is Katajor . The fanmily is getting bigger and bigger with every you tube video release or with every broadcast.  

Katja is very active across her social media accounts which are listed below :

To conclude this blog , I want to say that since finding Katja on twitter.  She has been a very strong influencer on me as she is loving and caring towards each of her supporters.  Being a Katajor is like having one big fanmily of brothers and sisters from all over the world. An  being united with the music from one person has the strength and longevity to form friendships from oceans wide and a far. I am so proud of the things Katja has achieved thus far. I am extremely looking forward to seeing what 2017 has install for Katja and her ever growing army of Katajors.
