With that being said, I would like to help you all get to know me a little better, if you may be interested.
My name is Kailan. It's pronounced Kay-lin, in case anyone was wondering (you wouldn't believe how many times I get called something else!)
I am 19 years old (my birthday is May 19th, 1993) and I'm from the 'burbs of Chicago. I am the oldest of three girls and my sisters, Lauren and Jenna are my whole entire world and I don't know what I'd do without them.
I have a boyfriend, named Rob. We've been together since November 8th, 2009. He's my best friend in the whole world and we're never apart :) He's actually the one that encouraged me to start blogging!
As I'm sure you've seen from the pictures on my blog, I also love my pets. I have an 8 year old chihuahua named Gizmo. I also have a baby Sphynx, named Marty. She's actually my sister's cat, but I love her to death and treat her like my own :)
I'm currently enrolled in college and my intended major is Radiologic Technology. From there, I will be moving on to a program to pursue Diagnostic Medical Sonography. My career goal is to be a Obstetrics and gynecological (OB/GYN) sonographer, which means I'll get to see little growing babies every single day :) (I LOVE babies!)
That's the career I am pursuing, but my dream job has always been a makeup artist! Surprise, surprise ;)
I remember being a kid, seeing all my friends with their talents and hobbies and I never had one so I was always thinking, "I'll never be good at anything!" I never even considered makeup being a talent when I was younger, either, but I was always interested in it. When I was really young, my grandma bought me this little traincase that had a whole bunch of makeup in it and she told me I could have it when I was old enough. But sneaky little Kailan would wait til she was asleep, grab the traincase off the top shelf of the closet, and hide away in the bathroom. But of course, I'd come out looking like a drag queen because I had no idea what I was doing haha. I think that's when I fell in love with makeup.
After sophomore year of high school, I started wearing makeup and shortly discovered the beauty community on YouTube and I discovered this whole new world and realized there was so much more to makeup than I thought and I was amazed by it and thus sparked an obsession and slight addiction. Slight being an understatement, of course :)
Now that you know the history behind things, perhaps I'll let you know some random little things :)
-I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE, did I say huge? Harry Potter NERD! Have been since I was a little kid, will be til the day I die. Words cannot explain my obsession..
-I think I might have a tad bit of a candy addiction. I crave it constantly! My favorites are Chewy Sweet-tarts, Chewy Sprees, Blow Pops (Green apple, especially), Riesens, and 100 Grand :)
-I have been in love with Johnny Depp since I was in 6th grade. I even met him 12 times and got a kiss on the cheek from him!
-I am SUPER sensitive. My feelings get hurt easily and I cry very easily as well. Sad or romantic movies? Fuhgetaboutitttt, I'm cryin' before the sad or romantic part even comes on because I KNOW it's coming.. it's that bad. Haha.
-I'm obsessed with taking baths. They're my stress reliever and they always put me in a great mood and make me feel better!
-I am a child at heart. Especially when it comes to movies. I LOVE animated kids movies.
-My favorite TV shows are True Blood, The Walking Dead, and Dexter. SO GOOD.
-My favorite movies are Coraline, Sweeney Todd, anything by Tim Burton, Fight Club, and that's all I can think of right now :)
-I am a serious bookworm! Besides Harry Potter, I love the Hunger Game Series and anything &everything by Chuck Palahniuk, who is the author of Fight Club. I also was obsessed with anything by Roald Dahl and the 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events' series by Lemony Snicket when I was a child and those never died and I still love both.
(this was the last time I met Johnny Depp, at the Public Enemies Premiere! The picture was taken by E! and was featured on the E! News that night!! Look at him touching my arm *diesinside*)
