Monday Mornings

This is me on Monday mornings. No makeup. Messy hair. Eating cereal out of a Tupperware container. This is the epitome of a Monday morning.

As I get dressed for class and eventually put on some eyeliner and concealer, all I can think about is how I would have NEVER posted a picture sans makeup like this a few years ago.

Spotify Playlist: Running to Class

Happy Monday!

Guess what today is?! The first day of classes this semester! Instead of dragging myself out of bed and zombie-walking to my classes, I’m gonna put on this playlist in the morning and pump myself up to see all of my friends, take in this beautiful campus and hopefully meet my future bae in one of my classes 😉

I hope everyone enjoys this playlist and has the most amazing day ever!Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 4.40.29 PM

Conquering Social Media

As I sit here shoving Cheetos in my mouth, I am also thinking about venturing into the scary, unfiltered and sometimes unfriendly realm of social media.

I have created a Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Bloglovin’ page for The Kelly Charm, and I would love it if you all could be my first set of followers.  I’d love to follow all of you back as well.

Stay updated with my latest posts and don’t be shy! I love talking about all things life, career and beauty & fashion.

If you have any advice on how to keep up with social media, please throw some knowledge my way. I would love some support as I take a leap out into the social media world.

And as always, THANK YOU for reading The Kelly Charm!Screen Shot 2016-01-02 at 4.40.29 PM

5 Holiday Must-Haves

Winter – my least favorite season. I always say I was born in the South for a reason, and that reason is that I hate the cold. Since winter in inevitable, here are some of my favorite things to make this holiday season a little cozier.

1. Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizerproduct_revitalizing_moisturizerAvoid looking like a ghost this season and stay golden during winter with Jergens Natural Glow. It’ll give you some color without making you look like you stepped out of the tanning salon. It’s a great alternative to tanning beds and spray tans, so I would highly suggest this to everyone who is looking to get a nice glow without damaging their skin.

2. Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipsticks

If you’re not looking to spend a fortune on lipsticks, head to your local drug store and pick up a tube from Maybelline’s Color Sensational Matte line. I have four already, and my favorite is Touch of Spice. It’s a great color for all of your fancy holiday parties.

3. Estee Lauder’s Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme51h4xcix7kl-_ac_ul320_sr290320_Alright, now I didn’t actually buy this because it’s hella expensive, but I can’t imagine my life without it. It has definitely improved my skin. I use it at night, and when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels softer and looks brighter. This product will come in handy after those long nights out.

4. Yankee Candles1199601If you plan on spending most of you time in the comfort of your own home during winter break, make sure your house smells wonderful with Yankee Candles. They have a ton of great scents for the holiday season, so take your pick because you can’t go wrong.

5. Yaktrak’s Cabin Sockspdsp1-21770373p275wWhile you’re at home, there’s no easier way to get comfy than to slip on some soft socks. My favorite socks are these cabin socks that are so warm and cushiony, and they just make you feel like you should be sitting around a fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. These also make great last minute gifts because no one is going to say no to these socks.
