The time I rambled.

Oh hello there!
How ya been? How was your weekend?
I don't know why I'm typing in bold font today but I like it.

I have nothing to blog about today.
But, let's be real 99.7% of the time I have nothing to blog about and attempt to make it sound like I do and really all I manage to do is bore all of you to death.
Just like I am doing now.

These last few days I've been very annoyed. I'm not talking like someone forgot to text me back annoyed {but i do hate that.}
No, no, no.
I'm talking like the..

-Takes the very last bottle of water and doesn't replace any in the fridge so there isn't any cold ones
-Uses the last sheet of toilet paper and leaves the empty roll on the dispenser but yet gets up to get a new roll and leaves it sitting next to the toilet
-Complains about people using improper grammer and spelling. Listen, I slept through any class involving grammar and spelling. My blog, my rules. I really do try I just happen to be really sucky at it. Please don't yell at me!
-Paint my nails and then smudge my nails 3 seconds later
-When you are waiting for a tredmill to actually run but the highschool girls walking at a speed of 2.2 and texting the boys across the room are taking them up
-When your iphone will only hold a charge for up to 5 hours {pinterest,facebook, and twitter have NOTHING to do with wearing the battery down} and you forget to bring your charger with you


Those are just a few things that have happened to me in the past few days. I know I don't usually complain about things on my blog! But, phew! Sista has gotta complain!
Have you ever had a day{s} where you just want to scream and rip your hair out?

However, it wasn't all bad today. I got to participate in my first photo shoot, and by photo shoot I mean hair photo shoot.
Columbus Alive is a magazine here in Columbus and they are doing a story on braids as a trend and the hairstyle at my salon was featured and came up with this lovely number.

I promise tomorrow I will be more upbeat. 
Actually, that's a lie. I will either be VERY happy or VERY sad. 
I meet with my knee doctor one last time and he will tell me if I have to have one final knee surgery.
Thoughts and prayers please.

Ok, I'll shut up now.

Peace out.

Welcome to Club Paradise.

Happy Friday Errrbody.

Welcome to Club Paradise.
That is my homeboy, drizzy drake.

I had the pleasure of going to his concert last Saturday and since I had nothing else to babble on about today I thought I would blog about that.
I went with to his concert with my friend Jess {for her birthday} and it was a blast.
I'm not usually a fan of rap concerts but it was actually really good.
He did a really good job of interacting with the crowd but not much. I hate when artists talk way to much and perform to little. Drake is actually a really funny guy. 
I'm pretty sure at one point he was extremely intoxicated, which is a-ok with me. 
He took his shirt off at one point. 
So, I was sold.

{Erica, Me, Jess}

{Birthday Girl}


Between crashing a birthday partay before hand and hitching a hide with a complete stranger to the venue. Don't worry he turned out to be a very nice 19 year old civil engineer major. Jess falling in the middle of the street to hail a cab, and ripping her favorite J. Brand jeans. It was such a fun night.
Drake is one of my favorite rappers and when he sang "Motto" & "Headlines" I may or may not have been that crazy girl rapping every single line and dancing like a complete idiot. 

Today I am spending my day off with this adorable little thing.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Its Ok: I suck at blogging.

Good Evening, dolls.

Since I've been absent from blogging I've lost another follower {dropping like flies.} 
I can't blame them. I'm actually terrible at this. It's not that I don't like blogging it's just usually because I have entered loserville and there isn't much going on.

So, I'm linking up with one of my favorite bloggers Neely for It's Ok Thursday!

Its Ok Thursdays
*It's ok that I'm having pb & crackers and a cosmo for dinner.

*It's ok that after I ran out of crackers I just ate the pb with a spoon.

*It's ok that I cried like a baby when my friend Natasha asked me to be in her wedding.

*It's ok that I'm nervous to appear in Columbus Alive as a hair model. 
Yes, you read that right. I've got out of control roots right now. I'm allowed to be nervous.

*It's ok that I cried at the ending of Glee this week.

*It's ok that I'm extremely nervous that Katie and I signed up for Crossfit classes from living social. I'm actually more nervous that I will die.

*It's ok that I just actually forgot what I was going to type.

I think that is my que to wrap it up. 
What are you ok with this week?

Its ok!

Hiii everyone!

I woke up this morning and thought to myself, "How is it Thursday?"
But, I instantly decided I was excited it was Thursday because I get to see "The Vow" tonight with some fabulous ladies.
I hear Channing shows his backside...hooolllaaa.

I'm linking with Neely for "It's ok Thursday!" 
I love this link up because usually by this point in the week I'm ready to vent and it is a perfect outlet.

So, here it goes.

Its Ok Thursdays

*It's ok that I haven't been running much this week because my knee is back to hating me and has been swelling up the first few steps of my run..
Hello another knee surgery..

*It's ok that I have been rapping/singing to Drake 24/7 to fully prepare for his concert this weekend.
Homegirl loves her some Drake.

*It's ok that I have painted my nails 5 times already this week.

*It's ok that I bought myself multiple Valentines Dy gifts this year.

*It's ok that I'm blogging while on my lunch break from work.

*It's ok that I've been obsessing over SATC and finishing all 6 seasons.

*It's ok that I had a milkshake for lunch today. It tasted oh so good.

*It's ok that I didn't wash my hair this morning.
Go on, judge me, it's fine.

*It's ok that I miss my best friend like whoa.

What are you ok with today?

The time I got engaged & What I'm loving.

Just kidding.
My homegirl Natasha and her precious boyfriend got engaged a few days ago and her ring is b-e-a-utiful and I hijacked and wore it for a few minutes pretending it was mine.

Isn't it a beauty?
I'm completely jealous.

People, its been a slow day here at work so far.
So, I apologize for such a snooze fest.

Fine, I'll participate in What I'm loving in Wednesday so I don't lose followers.

I'm linking up with Jamie this week even though I can't get the image to show up on my blog. 
Blogger problems.

This week I am loving...

That yesterday I spelled at least 6 things wrong on my blog yesterday...whoops.

Oribe Hair Care Products
This is a line we carry at work and I am beyond obsessed with it.
The scent, the way it makes my hair shine.
Try it, I dare you.

Love this outfit.
I will be making this all summer long.
It's got wine, fresca and fruit. All of my favorites!

The Vow. 
Thursday I am going with my favorites girls...yay!

I die for these stemless wine glasses.

Mostly I am loving all of the relationships I've built these last few months from blogging, twitter, and facebook.
Gotta love social media.

I'm also loving that I applied for a PR position and am really hoping I get called for an interview!
*fingers crossed*

What are you loving?

Happy Valentines Day!

I am spending this Valentines Day alone this year.
My 4 year old cousin asked me to be his "valentime" but then proceeded to tell me he can't take me to dinner or buy me flowers because he only has three dollars.
So, that doesn't look promising. 
Thumbs up, kids.
I mean my parent's didn't even get me a Valentine this year.
How rude.
{In my best Stephanie Tanner}

Sorry for the red obnoxious font, I'm trying to be festive.

Anywho, it is..

Just Peachy

This week is Top 5 Romantic movies!
Ahhh, just the way I like to spend my Valentines day :)

It was really was tough for me and I finally was able to decide on my Top 5.

1. The Wedding Date
First of all, it is the most adorable movie ever. I could watch it over and over again and never get sick of it. Infact, I actually did this one time, and by one time I mean three. 
Minor detail..

2. How to lose a guy in 10 days
It has Matthew McConaughey, moving on.

3. Crazy, Stupid Love
It has Ryan Gosling, again, moving on.
I kid. 
But seriously, he is shirtless in one and scene and I have one word for that: scrumptious.
It really is a cute movie abot love as well.

4. Something Borrowed
I love love love this movie. It is one of my favoite books so when the movie came out I was beyond excited to see it. It is a great mixture of a comedy/love. The cast I think is amazing and I watch it at least once a week.

5. Say Anything
It is an oldie but a goodie. 
I would do anything for a gorgeous man to stand outside my window with a radio above his head playing a classic love song.


I hope you all link with up Rachel for Top 5 Tuesday and have a FABULOUS Valentines Day :)

Spring Fever.

Oh there everyone! Remember lil ole' me?
I took a little blogging break because it was just one of those weeks.
You know the kind of week where you paints your nails black or a dark color and wear just a smidge of extra eye liner everyday?

But, nothing a shopping spree and manicure can't fix and now I'm back in action.
Speaking of shopping spree.
It put me in a fantastic mood {duh} and made me realize I now am not only broke but have another problem to deal with: spring fever.

Pretty much every store has their entire spring collection out so far and it is making veryyy antsy for springtime. Columbus has some wonderful events that happen in spring/summer and I can't wear to wear bright colors, shorts, and dresses to all of them.

These are always my go to items for spring.
Everyday Tops
I live in blouses and tanks during the Spring. I love all colors, and prints.
You better believe homegirl rocks some animal print.
I don't get along with shorts because well I'm not the biggest fan of my legs! But, springtime in Ohio sometimes really can be gorgeous and pairing a nice blouse with a wedge is a perfect going out outfit!
I wear A LOT of jeans. Whether it is a skinny, black skinny, or boot cut. They are great in the springtime for those chilly nights.
Finishing Touches
Last but not least, the finishing touches. Accessories and make up is my favorite part of spring. You get to wear bold pieces and fun nail polish and lip gloss! 

What are some of your favorite things that are making you have spring fever?

A blog anniversary & The Personnel.

Oh hey there!
Happy Monday!

My weekend was beyond fabulous and that is probably why on my day off I'm still lounging in my pajama's and swalloing tums like it is my j-o-b.

Saturday I had the wonderful pleasure attending Holly's blog anniversary party and it was so so much fun!
Her precious baby turned 3 so we celebrated and had lots of laughs.
Picture stolen from Alicia.

Then, this is where shit gets cray,
Alicia being the gem she is talked Katie & I to go see this band and let me tell ya, I am oh so glad she did. 
First, the band was amazing. Anyone who sings BoyzIIMen, BSB, Nsync, Justin Bieber AND Britney Spears is a saint in my book.
Second, My legs are still sore from the non stop dancing we participated in, my stomach is still doing flips from all the booze wine, liquor, shots  I consumed, and the bags under my eyes are still there.

The lead singer may have fallen in love with Alicia.
I can not confirm or deny. 

Seriously, love these girls like whoa! So so fun! 

I'm sure as you all know the Giants won the Superbowl and I'm pretty sure it is because I did this.
I painted my nails royal blue because I chose to cheer for the Giants and because of this that is why they won. 

Happy Monday, everyone!

Good evening ladies!
How is everyone? How was your day?

Today was a rather odd day for me. 
This might be a rather lengthy post, and for that I apologize in advance.

Today started off like any other day for me. I got up brushed my teeth, picked out my outfit, blah blah blah.

But, something felt different, felt off. I thought about it for a few minutes and instantly went to my planner to see if I had over slept and missed an appointment. Called my mother to see if there was something I missed. 

Nope. Nothing. 

I went about my entire day feeling off and exhausted myself trying to figure out what I was forgetting.
I brushed it off and thought nothing of it. 

Then, it hit me.

"Hey kels, happy life day!" I heard my dad say.
There it was. I looked at my calendar one more time and saw it, February 2.

February 2, 2009 instantly flashed into my head. 

I had a doctor's appointment at 8:00am and my doctor was running extremely late and didn't even see me until 9:15. 
9:30am: I called my mom to tell her my appointment went well.
9:35am: Checked my blackberry and laughed at all the picture comments friends were leaving from our drunken weekend adventures.
9:52am: Called my grandma to let her know how my appointment went and remember the last thing I said: "Oh shit!"
9:55am: CRASH. 

 I remember coming to it and seeing my windshield shattered, my airbag deployed, my seat belt laying on my floor, and my steering wheel was sitting in my lap.
Oh my god. Shit. What the hell.
All thoughts that were running inside my head. The next thing I did was wiggle my toes and fingers to see if I could feel them, then looked into my rear view mirror to see if I was bleeding or anything on my face. Next thing I know an old lady is holding my hand through my window and saying "it's ok hunny, I'm here praying for you." 
She hands me a phone and I called my mom {I don't remember this at all} and was screaming. 
When my steering wheel snapped it got my pants caught into it and I couldn't get loose. Since my airbags deployed it smelled like smoke, burnt skin. 
Instantly, I flipped out. 
I started screaming "MOM! I'm on fire..help." 
But, I wasn't clearly on fire it just smelled like it from the airbags and burnt metal from my car. 
After that it was all a blur. I went in and out of it. I had to be physically cut out of my car and covered with a fire blanket to protect myself from the glass and sparks from the jaws of life. 

Worst part of the day: seeing my dad driving up to my accident running towards my car and having cops have to hold him back. I was scared and confused and I just wanted my dad to tell me I would be ok. Seeing the fear on his face and tears in his eyes made me freak out. I didn't know how bad the accident was or how bad it looked until I saw his face. 

I went to the hospital and got checked out. I walked away with two banged up knees and some scratches on my knee caps. The nurses and doctors were shocked that my airbags deployed {my car was a 97' civic.} They were also shocked that I didn't have any facial bruising or that I didn't break my nose. My seatbelt from the force literally got detached from my car so I didn't have any bruising across my chest.

Someone. Something. Saved me.

I didn't have a seat belt to hold me into my car and yet I somehow stayed put in my car. 
I stayed perfectly in place in my seat, barely even budging.

I later had to have reconstructive knee surgery to fix all the damage it caused from the accident. I couldn't walk for 9 weeks and had to do physical therapy for an entire year, 2-4 times a week.
But, I didn't once complain. Because, I reminded myself that I am lucky to even be alive to be walking.

I don't know what saved me that day. I don't know what kept me inside my car and kept me safe.
I won't ever know. 

So, when my dad said happy life day it dawned on me: this is why I feel off today.
For 10 minutes my parents and I reflected on it and talked about how lucky I truly was and how hard it was for them to drive up onto the actual accident and see me being helpless and in pain.

So, I'm thankful for this day and I'm thankful for whatever made me live past 2-2-2009.
It helps remind me that everyday should be happy life day.

So, to all of you: happy life day.
