Snow in April

 

Scarf - Old
Cardigan - Thrifted

So believe it or not, these photos were actually taken on Easter! That's right, April 5th, 2015 and it snowed! The weather in Buffalo has had extremely cold and it had a hard time breaking. Now, we are finally into a fairly regular average temperature of 60 degrees F!
I couldn't be happier!
I had cabin fever so bad and I'm desperate to shed these layers and wear my light and airy clothes! Looks like it's time for another shopping trip!
Let me just wrap up by saying that I know my hair looks crazy! hahah, It's in between the stages of growing out and the natural color coming back while the dyed color grows out. It's an annoying process to have to wait for my hair color to come back, but I refuse to dye it again. I was thinking of temporary dye just so it didn't look so awful, but I'm conflicted. Any opinions?





Erin and Easter







Green Dress - (local boutique) Half & half Co.
Black Coat - Borrowed! (thanks, Fran! ❤️)
Heels - Thanks again, Fran! 


This post is featuring my boyfriend, Shawn's, little sister Erin! Believe it or not, these pictures were taken April 5th. That's right, it snowed in Buffalo on Easter! I hope the snow is gone for good, but the beautiful lightly frosted trees and ground made the perfect compliment for Erin's dress and coat. It is a very simple but mature outfit that's great for the transitioning seasons.

Kiersten Casual!

    


This post doesn't include links of where to to get these clothes, but it's definitely a good outfit especially on those gloomy spring days when you aren't quite feeling ready to put on that bright yellow dress. Kiersten has her own blog that you can visit, here!
I've been working on a few more posts with me and I've also taken some pictures featuring Erin!




A "Win-Wind" Situation!




This is a great trend this Spring/Summer season! If you're looking to stay cozy and dry this season, then grab one of these trendy trenches! They're mostly lightweight, and offer a fashionable flair while maintaining functionality. This was a project for my fashion forecasting class, but I wanted to share it with all of you! 

What do you think?
Do you love this trend?




Happy 2nd Birthday, Kelsey the Dig!


Yay! Kelsey the Dig has survived 2 years! I know this past year has been a tough one, but I'm determined for more posts! I won't lie, it's hard to shoot in such bad weather all the time. Thanks for being there to scroll through pictures, read and "lol", participating in my giveaways, and overall, thank you for always coming back!
You're the reason I am truly inspired to continue this blog when life gets tricky. 

Here are a few of my favorite posts from this past year!


  
              


DIY: Bleached Henna Jeans




First and foremost, you need to begin with making Bleach Paste, or you can purchase a Clorox Bleach Pen, however, it doesn't do the job quite as well in my opinion.
Here is a minute and a half video on how to do it! This process honestly only takes 10 minutes with 3 regular household items.
Here's the video I made, enjoy!







Steps:
  • I. Make Bleach Paste, or grab a Clorox Bleach Pen (Bleach paste gives better results).
  • II. After you have your mixture, put it in a container that you can easily control when making your designs!
  • III.Grab your jeans, or garment, and place a Styrofoam board or cut out cardboard in between the layers of shirt, so that what you bleach on one side, doesn't turn up on the other.
  • IV. (Optional) If you so wish, you can draw a pattern on with some chalk or white tailoring pencil, and begin tracing or creating!
  • V. Let sit for about 4/5 hours and rinse thoroughly. You should be able to rub the bleach off under water.
  • VI. Run on the rinse cycle once, and dry. 



Enjoy your new refashioned henna look!

Tuesday Tips: 10 Cheap Dates


Whenever someone's birthday or a gift giving event comes around, I always like to keep a creative vibe in mind. I usually do DIY or other homemade or sentimental gifts, and often like to explore the experience I once had as a child. Last Valentine's Day I "took Shawn to Australia" by transforming our apartment into a small Australian themed dinner with matching decorations. So of course that will be on my list!

10. Blanket Fort Movie Night
If this doesn't scream creative and cute, I don't know what does. Grab a few blankets, hair-ties (or string), pillows, and a movie you both love. Perhaps the first movie you two watched together?

9. Indoor Camping
Similar to building a blanket fort, but at home you could snuggle up to a fire place (or get crafty and paint a fake one and cuddle up to the heater instead). I also strongly suggest making indoor s'mores in your oven. Just build it, and let them cook in the oven for 5 minutes. You could also create scavenger hunts for each other in your "outdoor" excursions.

8. If Your a Server, Eat Dinner Where You Work.
Now, this isn't for everyone. I know people can be very private about their personal lives, but if you can get that 50% employee discount just by eating at the same restaurant that employs you, then go for it! I'm not exactly a P.D.A kinda girl when I'm in public anyway, so eating at my work place with my boyfriend certainly wouldn't bother me. But like I said, perhaps not for everyone.
7. Have a (Naughty) Board Game Night
Perhaps you and your partner LOVE board games while drinking wine? Let's be friends! Here is how you can put a romantic spin on it; Play a series of (short) board games and whomever wins the entire gaming tournament gets to do this or that (if you know what I mean.) This is also a great idea if you both are a gamer couple with an xbox, ect.

6. Play A Taste Testing Game
Both of you can get some cute giggles out of this silly game. You both prepare some snacks for each other and blind fold the other while they taste a guess what it is. This is some serious trust if you can do this, you never know if your partner will prank you! This game is great with peanut butter, nutella, and things like ranch dressing, ect.

5. Live Music at a Coffee Shop and Dinner
I live in the city of Buffalo and live music at coffee shops is not an uncommon thing and it offers a decent amount of entertainment. Why not spice things up and go and get some sandwiches for a cheap dinner while you watch?

4. Celebrate Valentine's Day AFTER Feb. 14th
Everything goes on sale, there are discounts, and you will probably find a bunch of deals you couldn't afford right before the holiday. Besides, those reservations you forgot to make months in advance? Well, at least you can go somewhere after Valentine's Day and more than likely get a table. You didn't want to have to be in an absolutely crowded, stuffy restaurant on such an intimate holiday, anyway.

3. Try Ice Skating
Ice Skating is so awesome this time of year! I don't really know how to ice skates, but it's fun anyway! And admission into the rink plus rental skates (if you don't own them) are very affordable. Make sure to bundle up! Better safe than sorry in the cold.

2. Start A T.V (Netflix) Series Together
Because, in the winter, sometimes we just want to cuddle inside where it's warm. Plus, new things, like t.v series, sparks conversation in between breaks and much afterwards. Personally, I sit at the dining room table with Shawn and watch new episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

1. Home made gift exchange with love letters.
If you and your partner are both artsy and crafty people, make each other's gifts in front of each other. It will be fun to see the progress of a home made item of a loved one.
Now, I love receiving love letters. Some girls deny that they like it, and that's okay, but I think if you really want to try and reach a deeper connection with the person you love, that it is a great idea to express to them exactly how you feel. And because it's a note, they will be able to keep your words close to them and re-read it in times where comfort is needed.

NEW HAIR! 
I've really really been wanting a perm for my long hair to add some volume ad poof to it, but I'm a broke college kid and can't afford fancy things on my dead hair so I chopped it off instead!
Actually, I cut the front, and Shawn cut the back.I trust him fully and that was his first time cutting hair,hehe!
I'm kind of free spirited so it wouldn't have mattered if he botched it. I was also into getting a pixie cut for a bit. I'm going to try and make a real effort with this blog this year and I think I'm off to a decent start. I'm also taking 19 credits at my university and working part time. It's not a great time to be "modeling" when it's 3 degree (F) out. But I'll try! 
So do you like my new cut?
Please comment, I love hearing from you!
