Hello Everyone! 🙂
I am so excited that you have stumbled across my blog! I have been considering creating a beauty blog for quite some time now, and I finally have decided to give it a go!
So – I guess that job one would be to introduce myself to you! Tell you what I’m all about! My yays and nays! Who I am, what I do and what I hope to do in the future! Alright – let’s just get to it, shall we?!
My name is Kaylee Barber – soon to be Patterson – and I am from St Catharines, Ontario. I have lived here my whole life; Never left. I’m not proud of that, but it is what it is. I currently live in Thorold with my fiancé, Josh, and our adorable cat named Kushla (It’s pronounced Koosh-la … I didn’t make it up, okay? I’m just rollin with it). I am 24 with two diplomas from Niagara College; One in Hairstyling Techniques, and one in Executive Office Administration. I know – Completely different things. I have a hard time dealing with what I want to do for the rest of my life. I get bored easily, and I can’t see myself loving a certain ‘career’ forever. Maybe that’s crazy – Maybe not. I have also attended Brock University twice – That obviously didn’t end that well. University is NOT for me. As much difficulty as I have deciding what to be when I grow up, at least I have discovered that about myself! They say that you learn who you are in University and I guess I did – I learned that I am definitely NOT a University Student!
Currently, I work in a small office for a non-profit organization called Slo-Pitch Ontario. I was lucky enough to be given this position when I was in dire need of a co-op placement; And now, they don’t want me to leave. I love it here – The people are great, the hours are good – However, I still feel that I need to be doing something different. I can’t even help myself. I am never satisfied! Oh well – Maybe one day I will figure it out!
I am an ex varsity athlete – I played for the Niagara College Lady Knights Volleyball Team for two years. I hate working out and I love to eat things that are bad for me so I needed to do something to ensure that I didn’t grow to 700 pounds!
Now – On to the interesting stuff … Why a Beauty Blog?
I have always loved the ‘beauty industry’, (I thought that my calling was Hairdressing but I was wrong about that too!). I love hair and makeup and fashion! I love getting dolled up and feeling like a million bucks! I have become completely obsessed with makeup over the last year or so. I actually have to hide some of the shipments that come to the house so that my fiancé doesn’t freak! Shh. I have heard that when you go to work everyday doing something you love, something you are passionate about, it isn’t work at all. That’s what I am trying to find. I want to love what I do. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, is it?! I also plan on taking some other courses over the summer to better myself and my chances of making it in this industry.
I have been watching Makeup Artists on YouTube for years. I have my favourites, 3 in particular, who I am completely obsessed with and have to buy one of everything they talk about! I honestly can’t help myself. My fiancé calls them my ‘YouTube Girlfriends’. Some nights, I spend more time watching their videos than talking to him. #SorryNotSorry! I need to stay on top of this stuff!
Well – I feel like that gives you a pretty good overview of myself. Makeup addict, Cat lover, and Completely Lost Forever Student! Alright – I guess I should get back to work now … Someone has to make the moolah to pay for my makeup addiction 😉
Thanks for reading! Chat Soon! Xoxo
