Polyvore = Love

Since this technically is a fashion/beaut blog I thought I would share with you some polyvore sets I put together.

For New Years I went to a dance that was black and white themed. This is what I wish I could have worn.

New Year, Same Old Plan

Happy New Year!! I know I'm a bit late but oh well. I'm a bit of a party pooper. I don't really feel like anything is different or exciting. The only change is that I have a new word of the year (I'm currently uploading a video about that!). I feel like things will really begin to change in April (or September depending on when I start Uni). Since this is my new years post I feel like I should talk a bit about my resolutions. Like I said, I'm uploading a video about my goals and word of the year but last night I set a couple more goals. These ones are more college related, as in I want to accomplish them before I go.

-I want to be able to run for at least 30 minutes. I've never really been able to run before but I've been exercising on my eliptical machine so when it warms up I'm going to try. I've always wanted to be able to run.

-I want to reach 5000 subscribers. I've said several times that I don't really care about the number but I always have to set goals or else I don't progress. I don't even know if this is possible but then again, I didn't think it was possible to reach 500 before my birthday. You never know if you don't try.

-I want to read at least 10 real books. I've always loved reading but I've always read the teeny-bopper books. I want to read REAL novels. I'm currently reading Lord of the Rings. I'm about half way done.

-I want to reach my goal weight of 125 pounds. I started off at around 143 at the end of the summer and before Christmas I was 136. Since I've added exercise I think I can do it. It's not just the weight I want to loose but I want to develop the right habits so I can stay healthy when I'm at university.

-I want to have enough money saved up for at least 3 semesters including housing and food. That way I already have a head start o the next year. Also, if I get a scholarship I'm going to start saving up for a car.

So yah, those are a couple extra goals I set for myself. I think they're pretty reasonable!

english will be the death of me.

I'm trying to write an essay about Hamlet and them randomly 'We Will Rock You' pops into my head. And then rugby.

Can someone please make a rugby movie based of Hamlet? I think it would kick butt. Also, the soundtrack is already started! :)

Oh yah, cool moment yo. I was writing an essay about the play 'Death of a Salesman' when one of my all time favorite Yellowcard songs popped it my head. It matched the play perfect! And then I realized the song was called 'Death of a Salesman'. It took me another 5 minutes to connect the dots. Oops.

Coming Back

It's been a really long time! I got so caught up in trying to make my blog like every other beauty and fashion blogger that I kind of got sick of it. I'm going to try to blog more. But this time, it'll be about what I want instead of just what I think everyone else wants.

Love-Day Sunday

I've been in a bit of a bad mood today so I thought now would be a good time to start my new series on my blog. Basically, I just want to spread the word about some of my favorite bloggers and youtubers. I think Sundays are the perfect day to share the love!!

This week I want to talk about my favorite blog. I have like 3 that are kind of tied but this one is definitely #1.

This is a super cute pic of her and hubby. They are stylish and nerdy (Oh my heck I LOOOOVE Doctor Who!!!), basically the best combination EVER! Lauren has the most amazing style and I love her series 'Tumblr Thursday'. Basically, she has the same interests as me so instead of spending hours on tumblr, I can just check out her blog every thursday to see the real gems.

Another reason I love her blog so much is because I can relate to her in sooo many ways. No need to elaborate on that but reading about her experiences gives me inspiration and proof that things DO get better. Lauren has had TONS of trials but she always seems to get past them and look at the brighter side of things. I want to be more like her. That would be awesomespice.

So yah. Check out her super duper fantastic amazing awesomespice blog!

Transitional Weather and Hair

Basically, I haven't blogged in like FOREVER!! Bad Kelsea! I want to start blogging again. Not that anyone in their right might would care. I'm not the most exciting person.

It's been FREEEZING lately! Hence the super duper cute hat and scarf. And that sweater is wool by the way. Yah, it's THAT cold....
And although it's super subtle and you probably couldn't even tell, I freaking ombred (is that even a word?!?) my hair! Total hair experiment and total SUCCESS! I filmed it. You'll see it eventually.
