DIY Makeup Brush Holders!

Hey everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you this fun and easy craft to organize your makeup brushes! I decided to make these on a whim after becoming annoyed by how cluttered my previous brush set up was. These new holders make it so much easier to organize and find my brushes. If you want to learn how to make these, keep reading!

The first thing you are going to need to do is visit the craft store and pick up candle holders or jars (with out the lids) that will fit the size of your brushes. I opted for two tall jars and one short. You will also need some type of decorative beading to go in your jar. I suggest getting beads that match your style-so make it fun!

Next, you will need to pour the beads into each of the jars.

After you have all your beads poured, you can start putting in your brushes!

Now you have super cute (and easy!) makeup brush holders. I love these because they are so customizable and work great for displaying brushes!

Classic school shoes (aka Converse)

Hello Everyone!

It has been awhile since I last posted but I am back and ready for a year filled with blogging! Right now, I plan on posting amazing, Kelly-filled content each week on Friday. As most of you probably know, back to school season has begun and all of us kiddos still in school must return back to our dull lives as the summer comes to a close. But that’s ok; because I happen to love school-sort of. I hated school when I actually went to “school school” aka private school/public school. Now I go to an “umbrella school” or “homeschooling school” which basically means I attend classes twice a week at school (yes it is in an actual building not my bed) and the rest of the week I do my schooling at home. I started homeschooling/umbrella school in 10th grade and I would never go back. “School school” just wasn’t my thing. I hated feeling trapped in a building for 7+ hours, doing busywork, and having to wake up so early that I couldn’t function. Well all that has changed now. I’m in control of when I wake up, what assignments I do first, where to do them (Starbucks is a personal fav), and homeschooling cuts out the busy work…to be honest.

This post ended up being more about the type of schooling I do vs my first day of school but whatevs. I assure you I had a great first day and I wont bore you with the overly-exciting details of my statistics class. Anywhos, did any of you start your first day of school, work, idk? If yes, let me know in the comments I’d love to chat!

Who’s hype for fall?!?

My new favorite powder!


So I recently took a trip to my local Ulta and stumbled upon this beauty. I didn’t go into the store intending to buy this product, let alone any other product. Although, my powder at home was running low so I’m glad I bought this. 

First of all, this powder is AMAZING! Besides the fact that it smells like chocolate (how is this just now a thing?!), this powder is excellent in all ways, shapes, and forms. The packaging is super cute and the container closes nicely; unlike other powders I’ve had. This product also comes with an applicator sponge that is stored below the powder. This is great for storage and traveling. Besides looks, I immediately was attracted to the consistency of the powder. When I swatched it on my hand, it glided on smooth, elegant, and thick. I normally use powder on top of a liquid foundation or bb cream; but this could be used as foundation alone! In fact, that’s what I used it for today! I have not tried too many powders; but of the ones I have, this one tops the charts.

If you’re looking for a new finishing powder or powder foundation, I would HIGHLY recommend this chocolate smelling, color correcting, and matte finishing powder! 10/10 thanks for this one Too Faced! 😍

The 1975 Concert


Recently, I attended a concert in Philly for the 1975! The tickets were not very expensive (ranging from $35-50) and then venue was very clean and organized. They had food trucks, food stands, drinks, and merch for sale. The band merchandise was a bit on the pricey side- $40 for a tank top. All in all, the band put on an amazing show and the whole atmosphere was relaxing. During the first song, some people started moshing (not sure why ? Lol) but Matt immediately stopped the whole show and asked everyone to stop and to “help everyone up, give them a kiss, and show some compassion.” The music was incredible and I highly suggest everyone to see them live!

Bohemian OOTD


Today’s weather was a little gloomy but I always seem to be productive on rainy/grey days. This outfit is super comfy and I’m in love with the bohemian feel! The dress I’m wearing is from Target (oh, btw it has pockets!!) and the shoes are from Khols. I’m also wearing a necklace from Francesca’s but it’s hard to see it in the picture. 

Let me know how your week has been and what styles you’ve been into lately!
