Chapsticks, Cameras, and Crowns

Ok so...I've had a suggestion to explain what the title of my blog actually means. Some people who know me really well probably don't need an explanation, but for those of you who don't know a lot about me, here you go.

Chapstick - I never go anywhere without chapstick. Ever. I have to have it. One time, I was going to school, and I forgot my chapstick. Lucky for me, I have an awesome dad who stopped to get some for me at the gas station. I take a writing class during the school year at a local college, and in my writing class, our teacher asked us to write Six Word Memoirs. By the way - Six Word Memoirs are so fun! You basically just try to write your life story, or an explanation of your life, in six words. One that I came up with was "Must have chapstick in my pocket." What's your Six Word Memoir?

Cameras - I love taking pictures! I'm a member of the yearbook staff at my school (actually, my two friends and I are Editors!), and we have this really, really nice camera that only occasionally acts naughty and screws up pictures for us. I love using it. I was thinking this morning how awesome the invention of the camera was. How cool is it that we can take a picture and record practically anything that happens in our lives? How else would we be able to freeze our memories, except through writing? It's so cool. In my opinion, cameras are one of the best inventions of all time.

Crowns - I went through the normal childhood obsession with princesses just like most girls do at a young age. But then, when I was 15, the obsession resurfaced. For my 16th birthday, I had a Disney Princess party complete with the balloons, the ice cream cake with Disney Princess figurines, and too many Disney Princess cards and presents to even keep track of. At that birthday, I received over 2,000 Disney Princess stickers. Since age 15, I have had four crowns and one magic wand. Two of those four crowns have had light-up capabilities. Also, I am working on writing a book called Crowned which is basically about the connections between Disney Princesses and the way a Christian girl should live.

So there you are! Hopefully that explains the blog title and tells you a little more about me!


  1. Hey Kelsey!
    That's really cool... I wish I had such a great story behind my blog name... :)

  2. Hi Kelsey! lol, I always have to have chapstick in my pocket too...I get grumpy if I don't have it with me, lol. I like your blog name; it's cool! :)

  3. Hi! Thanks! I'm totally glad there's someone else like me lol. Are you a specific type of chapstick kind of girl, or are you not very picky about it?
