High Five For Friday

Friday, November 29, 2013

Whew. What a week. If any of you got up early for Black Friday, I'm so sorry. I was sleeping.

1. One Direction's new album came out this week. If you didn't know this about me already, I love those boys. I do. Their album is amazing and I've been jamming out to it all week long.

2. Thanksgiving was yesterday, of course, and somehow the day ended without me taking any pictures. None. I should really start getting better about that. Oh and the Cowboys won, so that's a plus.

3. Although I didn't go out at midnight last night, my parents and I did decide to venture the craziness for a bit today. We just went to Hobby Lobby so I could get some things for Christmas gift making. Intriguing, I know.

4. This just makes me smile everytime I read it... it's classic Dad humor.

5. And finally, I leave you with this.

Yes Michael, yes it is.

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! Are visions of turkey dancing in your head? I hope not, cuz that would be weird. 
Anyway, can you believe it's already Thanksgiving? That also means Christmas is just around the corner now. Yay. I'm excited to spend the day with family and see what kind of shenanigans we get into. Also, go Cowboys. 

I'm thankful for a lot of things, but these are a few off the top of my head.. (I accidentally typed me head. I guess I'm Irish today.)
 -God's grace and forgiveness
-My wonderful family and friends
-My favorite shows
-Books. Books are good.
-Taylor Swift (I had to sneak that one in somewhere)
-Christmas music (What I'm listening to as we speak)
-My sweet Daisy. This is the first holiday season without her.. miss that nugget. 
-Aaaand the list could go on and on. So I'll just stop now, or I'll be typing til New Year's.

I hope you have a wonderful day today, and happy Thanksgiving

Monday inspiration

Monday, November 25, 2013

Well, it's the start of another week. I'm particularity excited about this one because:
1. Thanksgiving is Thursday, and
2. it's officially one month until Christmas.

I'm so excited y'all.

I get to go home to my family on Wednesday, so I just have to get through the rest of today and tomorrow. Right now, I'm really liking this quote:

I think that this is relatable no matter what you're doing or what's going on in your life. Honestly it is quite hard for me to do this most of the time, but I know I should. And so should you. 
You got this.

xoxo, Kae.

High Five For Friday

Friday, November 22, 2013

It's that time again, folks. Friday has arrived. Yay. 

1. Can you believe next week is already Thanksgiving? I can't. But I am excited.

2. I am behind on my Christmas gift planing in the worst way. You would think I'd have tonsa ideas just flowing out right? Wrong. Luckily there is the beauty that is Pinterest. Now if only I could sew.....

3. The semester is thisclose to being done. It's the home stretch.

4. I had my first near-running-over-animal experience this week. It was a squirrel. He was okay, so it's a good thing. I, however, was traumatized.

5. Did y'all watch this week's Coven? It was intense, to say the least. I feel like all my shows are intense, all the time. Sigh.

Well, that's all I've got for ya. Have a lovely weekend, peaches. 
xoxo, Kae.

My favorite... BB cream

Thursday, November 21, 2013

Magic, indeed.

BB cream, CC cream, and now there's even DD cream. How do they expect us to keep up? It's all about personal preference, and for me, I prefer BB cream. I don't wear a whole lot of face makeup, so this cream is perfect because it does so many things in one. It hydrates your skin, covers blemishes and leaves a soft finish. I put my blush on top of it and the blush stays perfectly set, which doesn't usually happen for me.

If I told you this is the only BB cream I have tried, I would not be lying. It is. So maybe I'm not qualified to call it my favorite, but if I love it so much, is there really a need to test any more? I say no sir.

High Five For Friday: Pinterest edition

Friday, November 15, 2013

Can I get a holla for the weekend? Holla. You might have noticed the lack of H54F post last week.... you didn't miss much. It was an uneventful week, as was this week. So instead of a normal H54F post, I thought I would share some of my favorite pins lately. Since I spend so much of my time on Pinterest anyway....

1. I am loving the idea of a coffee bar for when I get my own place. (I know, always getting ahead of myself.) How adorable is this one?
coffee. corner. oh. my. goodness. yes.

2. I like vintage things.

3. I've been procrastinating getting things for my blog organized, but this is inspiring me.

4. So pretty.

Well, that's all for now. Have a lovely weekend! xoxo, Kae.

An open letter to Taylor Swift.

Thursday, November 14, 2013

In the middle of my normal blogging, sometimes I also just need to put things into words that I've been feeling. So, if you are not in the mood for a somewhat sappy post, feel free to skip this. Seriously. I won't be sad about it. If you want to read on though, that's cool too. I'll just be blabbering.

Oh, Taylor Swift. It's been seven years since I first heard you on the radio. It's kinda funny actually. If someone had told me then that in seven years you would still be one of my favorite people in the world, I may not have believed it. Sometimes certain obsessions of mine come and go. For instance, I had a Hilary Duff phase, a Jonas Brothers phase, even a Hannah Montana phase. While they were all intense, eventually they sort of faded into the distance. You though, have been a constant in my life, and I am so grateful for that. You don't know it, but you have gotten me through so many different things. So thank you for that. I'm so proud of you, by the way. You have come so very far and accomplished all of these wonderful things and you just sparkle in everything that you do. I can't even put into words how seeing you on stage makes me feel. The fact I've gotten to experience it twice so far is amazing and I just want to thank you for everything. I hope to one day be able to tell you these words in person, but for now I suppose writing them down will have to do. I love you. Stay beautiful, always. 

Woman Crush Wednesday: Taissa Farmiga

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Happy hump day y'all. Also, it's American Horror Story Coven day and Woman Crush Wednesday. So today I'm giving the lovely Taissa Farmiga some love.

As my obsession with AHS has grown, so has my love for Taissa. She is so pretty and a killer actress and she's my age. Like, what?? 

Dear Santa

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I say it's never too early to start your Christmas list. And I mean, there's only 42 days left (squeal) so it's okay that I've already had my list in my head for like two months. Or so I tell myself. These are just a few of my favorite things (get it?) that are on my mind for this year...........

1. A record player.
record player + vinyl collection.. I so want one of these portable record players!

Thanks to my mom and her wonderful record collection, I was exposed early on in life. Now I'm ready to begin my own collection, and the quintessential thing to go with records would be well.. a player. And look how pretty.

2.  A puppy. Yes. I want my own little furry child to cuddle up with and spoil, and since my sweet Daisy isn't with us anymore, I can't do that at the moment. So, a puppy please!

3.  Gilmore Girls. One of my favorite shows, like ever, and yet I don't own any of the seasons! Such a travesty. 

4. And last but not least.. Target. 

Not a gift card or something specific from the store. I just want the store. The whole store. I know it sounds a little unreasonable, but it's possible. Okay, okay... maybe just in Kaeleen World. So I guess here in real world just a gift card will do. 

Wrapped in red

Monday, November 11, 2013

It's November. Which, in Kaeleen World, means it's time for all things Christmas. I mean, don't me wrong, I love Thanksgiving. But I love Christmas more. So I think it was just fate that when I went to Target this weekend (ah, my happy place) that I saw Kelly Clarkson's new Christmas album there. I've been a Kelly fan for years and so I was excited when I heard she was putting out a Christmas record.
It did not disappoint.
I really like all the songs on the album, but I think my top three are a toss up between Blue Christmas, (Doesn't top Elvis, but definitely my favorite cover) Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Silent Night, which she sings with Trisha Yearwood and Reba. This album is perfect for sitting by the fire, or if you're fireplace-less like me, curled up in a blanket with some tea. Yeah. Sounds good to me.

Manicure Monday: Winter nails

Monday, November 4, 2013

Hello beauties! How was your weekend? Nothing beats the Monday blues like a new manicure, so here's a lil manicure Monday for ya.

All five nails are different colors.. I got the inspiration from this gem on pinterest.

All the colors I used are from Sinful Colors, but any dark colors will work!

High Five For Friday

Friday, November 1, 2013

Happy Friday my peaches! I can't believe it's already November. I love this time of year, though, so yay. This is how my week went....

1. As you know, last Saturday I cut my hair. I am in love with it. It's so fun to style and curl and I just feel happier with short hair.

2. I'm one of those annoying people who are all about Christmas as soon as Halloween is over. It's just my favorite time of year and it makes me happy. I love Thanksgiving as well, but I'm mostly gearing up for Christmas. Don't hate.

3. Speaking of Halloween, I think I already know what I wanna be next year. It's never too early to start planning, right?

4. I'm falling more and more in love with this group called Fifth Harmony. They are super good and not the typical "pop" group. I'm seeing them in February with Demi Lovato and I can't wait.

5. In college, you learn to do many things, including writing a four-page paper in less than four hours. This happened this week, and I am proud.

Have a good weekend my friends. And as always, I'm linking up with Lauren Elizabeth. :)
xoxo, Kae
