Come One, Come All!

Jeremiah 20:9 says : Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak anymore in his name. But his word was in my heart as a burning fire, shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay. 

It's a casual, short service, with meet&greet afterwards. Everyone is welcome!

Enough Is Never Quite Enough-What's Enough?

Happy Friday Everyone!
There is no outfit post today, seeing as my 55mm lense has been having issues recently :(( I have to take her to the Canon store for a cleaning this weekend, so hopefully I'll be back and ready for action by Monday!
So today I conducted a little experiement. Normally when I go to school, I wear the basic makeup - mascara, foundation, cover up. Well today I decided to see what people would say if I changed it up a bit. All I did was add a little eyeliner in the top lash line, and shimmery eyeshadow. The difference of people's compliments was impeccable. Everyone told me "you look really really pretty today, Kelsey." Yes, you would think that one should feel happy about that, but honestly it just made me feel awful. Personally, I hate wearing that much makeup, it feels fake to me. Don't get me wrong, makeup is super fun to play around with, but just not for an 'everyday look.' So you can only imagine what was running through my mind. "How come they find me to be so much prettier with makeup on?" "What do they think when I'm just normal?" And then I came to this one though : Why is it that you always hear guys say "I think it's most attractive when girls can be their natural selves" when in reality, they always go for the ones with the most makeup on? It's ridiculous how ones 'compliment' can be twisted into a critique.

Just some food for thought.

Party For One, Please?

(Sweater : Forever 21, Mustard Skirt: Forever 21. Awkward Legs: oh yeah, those are mine.)

Today I learned how to do 2 new things : Set up a tripod, and shoot a 22' Rifle. Completely different things right? Both were equally awesome.
Seeing as it's New Year's Eve, I guess I could list a few things that I plan to do in 2012.
2. Finally get my license
3. Be faithful to blogging
4. Participate in more charitable functions
5. Help my parents more around the house.
What are your "resolutions"

Now, I'm not big on partying for New Years, but this year I did a silly little something to get in the spirit of new beginnings.

I will always find an excuse for a party hat. Even if I'm chillen by myself. (:

Happy New Year, bloggers!

New Year, New Me.

So, as always, I apologize for never ever blogging when I say I will. BUT, this year I have a whole new motive. 

Her name is Bren. Ain't she a beaut?
You will be seeing a lot more of her, and hopefully a lot more of me in the new year. I'm quite quite excited (: 

Thanks for believing in my blog!

Sweater Weather = Better Weather

So this autumn weather is faaaantastic. I'll just use it as an excuse for not blogging in ages (;
This past weekend my cousin Morgan and I went to the cutest little pumpkin patch for her Junior pictures. It had horse rides, hay rides, and of course, tons o' pumpkins! I suggest going to a pumpkin patch to just about anyone, it's so much fun, especially if you bring friends and family! Besides going to the patch, we also ventured to seriously, the prettiest neighborhood I've ever visitied. It had it's own paved trial (and I'm talking mile long) that followed the pond, and lead to a beautiful little gazebo! So cute.

It's A Wonderful Life

These pictures are from awhile ago, but I don't remember if I blogged about them or not and I was faaaar too lazy to search.
My cousin Morgan and I went to the park and ventured into a lone field ( well, probably owned by someone ) and took some peeectures.
She is leaving for Hawaii tomorrow at 4am, and won't be back for 2 whole weeks. I might die without her. :l
On the bright side, I am leaving for Sunset Beach, NC on Tuesday. Hoorah for vacation!


I was featured in KenzieFaith's blog today! Suuuuper honored (: Check it out!

Wishlist (:

So, the common question that I've been asked recently is "what do you want for your birthday?" I honestly never think about answering them, so I guess I'll do so in a blog. First up to bat, I would killlll for these lovely Steve Madden Boots. I spotted them at Nordstroms the other day, and can't stop thinking about them! Besides those boots though, there are another pair that are equally amazing. Yes, they're from the same maker, but hey, I love Steve Madden.
My current sunglasses are all scratched up :( So these would have to suffice :)
Uhm, basically anything from Forever21 would be woooonderful.
Lastly, this beauuutiful canvas bag from There are only 2 left though, which means I probably won't be able to get it :( Oh well.
