REEVALUATING EARTH TO KACE

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

GUYS! EARTH TO KACE IS OFFICIALLY BACK!

I'm so excited to be blogging again. My last post was about a month ago and while I wish I could've kept up with it, life just got in the way.

October was such a crazy month. While it has always been my favorite, it seems to be the busiest. I celebrated Odie's first birthday, completed all of my Halloween traditions (carving pumpkins, baking spooky treats, etc.), went to a Halloween party and spent way too much time on my costume's makeup, and had a drunken night of karaoke on actual Halloween.

While this October was non-stop, it was a huge success. As November rolled around, the stress began to build. School started piling up with group projects, papers, and presentations. School became so overwhelming, I wasn't able to have time for myself.

OCTOBER GOALS

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

October starts in THREE DAYS, I repeat, THREE DAYS. The best month of the year is almost here and while I have my October traditions, I want to hold myself accountable for some things. I've never done a monthly goals post before but I love reading them and I think it will hold me accountable for everything I was to do during this jam packed month.

Here are my goals for October.

1. Actually decorate for Halloween
2. Reach 2,000 followers on Twitter
3. Go to the gym every week
4. Don't procrastinate on school work
5. Watch all of my top 13 Halloween movies
6. Publish the best newspapers possible for my university
7. Stay on track with blogging and vlogging
8. Bake my favorite Fall/Halloween treats
9. Continue to save money
10. Thank the people in my life more for all they do for me

I'm really excited to achieve each and every one of these goals and spend my favorite month doing amazingly fun and positive things.

Happy almost October! How are y'all spending this month? Let me know in the comments below!

WHY FALL IS THE BEST SEASON

A LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF

Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Dear Kaci,

I'm writing you because I'm now officially a senior year in college and while you grew up to be a (somewhat) responsible adult, I wanted to give you some advice to help you along the way.

Right now in your life, you aren't really thinking about your future. Cheerleading, choir, and boys are the only things on your mind and that's okay. You'll be devastated when your dream university doesn't work out and you'll be beating yourself up about not working harder in school. Great things will happen because of this. That school wasn't for you and there is so much more positives to come.

On your journey in life, there will be times when you will think to yourself that you aren't good enough or pretty enough or funny enough. Although you're extremely good at hiding this, do not believe your subconscious. You are all these things. And while you doubt yourself, you will soon realize how amazing of a person you are. You're self-confidence will continue to rise as you find your way through life.

You're about to move away from your family and while you're kind of scared, the excitement is taking over. You have always been good at saying goodbye to friends. This time you're even excited to say goodbye. You're ready to move on and make new friends and memories. Don't feel guilty because of this. It's a part of growing up and even though you will grow apart with those who were once considered your bff's, you will always look back on the amazing memories y'all shared and receive some amazing new friends along the way.

At this point in your life, you aren't looking for anything specific. You will feel like you don't have you're life together while constantly worrying about it. You will experience a lot of hard times. You will cry. I mean, really ugly cry. But you will laugh as well. Things will seem unfair at times, but they happen for a reason. Trust me.

You will also get to experience many exciting and new things on this journey through college and your life. You're growing up and although you feel as if you're lonely or stressed or anxious or jealous or happy or sad or intelligent or stupid or whatever you feel, be confident in who are you. Trust your gut. Take risks. You deserve to be happy and you will be. Trust me on that.

Love, Kaci

WHAT'S IN MY BAG?

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

We can all admit that our bags, purses, man-purses¿, and briefcases can get extremely messy. Trust me, sometimes I will find receipts from 3 months ago or old candy (I know, GROSS), but it happens. Thankfully for y'all, I cleaned out the unmentionables before committing to do this post, so y'all are all safe.
I've been wanting to do a "what's in my bag" post for quite some time now. To be exact it was going to be one of my JANUARY posts but something always came up or I decided it wasn't a good time to post it. Well now it is (plus I now have my cute KATE SPADE purse so it's actually the PERFECT time)!

I'm just gonna get straight into this and hope you become inspired by my purse must-haves or at least think it's interesting!

JULY RECAP

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

WOAH HI EVERYBODY! Long time no talk! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts this month. Things in my world have been absolutely CRAZY, I felt as if I had no time to myself let alone blogging.

BUT I’M BACK! And to catch y’all up on this hectic month, I decided to write a recap of July! I hope y’all enjoy!

P.S. This may be lengthy so hang tight!

WOOD BURNING LOVE

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Hi everyone! As many of you may know (or if you follow me on Pinterest), I absolutely love decor. I love planning my future home, I love buying unnecessary kitchen/living room items every time I step foot in target, and I love rustic yet chic style.
A couple weeks ago Hannah from Crafting by Hannah was so generous to make me a custom wood plaque and I absolutely LOVE it! It's honestly everything you want from a home decor piece.

JUNE'S OUT OF THIS WORLD ADVERTISER

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

As most of y'all know, my sponsorship program is slowly but surely taking off in the right direction. I created it back in January (when I still had no idea what I was doing) and have continuously improved it ever since. My goal is to advertise other's in hopes that more of my readers will check them out! I, myself,  advertised with other bloggers in the past and it made a world of difference.

I'm so happy I can boost traffic for other bloggers/businesses alongside making great friends with those behind the screen. Since I have adjusted the program quite a bit since I started, my meet my advertisers post will be a feature on only ONE person instead of multiple like it has in the past. This blogger is my top advertiser for the month, so she gets an entire post dedicated to her!

Without further ado, meet my amazing June OUT OF THIS WORLD advertiser!

WHAT LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIPS TEACH YOU

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

I DID IT! It's been a month since John has left for South Africa. ONLY TWO MORE TO GO UNTIL HE COMES BACK!!!

For anyone who is in or ever has been in a long distant relationship, then you know all about the struggles that come along with it. This is the third summer John and I are apart and I think I've learned a lot just within those 3 months out of each year. I thought it would be interesting to talk about those lessons I've learned the hard way, because you never know who might need to hear it.

MEET TALIA FROM DIARY OF MY CLOSET

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Hi everyone! It is officially Wednesday, so you know what that means... ANOTHER BLOG POST!

When I first started my sponsorship program back in January, I really didn't know what I was doing. Since then I have learned and altered the program to fit my needs as well as my readers.

My top advertisers have the opportunity to choose from having a guest post on Earth to Kace or getting interviewed by me. June's top advertiser is Talia, so without further ado here we go!!!

SUMMER ESSENTIALS

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Summer is HERE! Although my summer will be filled with summer classes and work, I'm blessed to live by the beach, where I can spend all my free-time laying out and playing with Odie!
I decided to kick off the sunny season with a summer essentials post! I only picked out a few things (there are plenty more) but I truly believe these items are a MUST-HAVE once the weather warms up and the days get longer.

CONCRET JUNGLE WHERE DREAMS ARE MADE OF

Thursday, May 26, 2016

Guys, my dream of going to New York City has become a reality.
I had the opportunity to go to the Big Apple with John and his dad this past week. While the trip was short and definitely bitter sweet (I'll explain in a bit), it was such an amazing experience!

TRAVEL FRIENDLY OUTFITS

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

So it's that time again. I haven't wrote a style blog post in a while and since I am leaving for New York TODAY (Yup, you heard right. I am actually on a plane right now as you read this), why not write all about the best outfits to wear while traveling?

CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-SORORITY GIRL

Wednesday, May 4, 2016

Hello everyone, sorry I've been MIA for a while. School and finals have been kicking my butt recently, however, I didn't want to keep y'all waiting for a blog post any longer.

I have been contemplating writing this for a while now, but as time goes on, I figured why the hell not. And sorry for how long this post is.
. . .
As my junior year comes to a close, I felt it was best to appreciate the time I've spent so far in college and how much I have grown into the person I am today.

10 THINGS PITBULL OWNERS ARE SICK OF HEARING

Saturday, April 16, 2016

Hello all my animal lovers!

I have been debating on whether or not to do this post for quite sometime now and I figured better now than never!

It breaks my heart when I take Odie to the park or a pet friendly restaurant and I get people pulling their children away or giving me the stink eye just because of his breed.

If you follow me on any of my social media, I try to spread as much content that supports pitbulls as I can, but I want to do more and reach a bigger audience (hence my blog).

So here are 10 things Pitbull Owners are Sick of Hearing!

MY BLESSED AND CHAOTIC LIFE

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

By the title of this post I'm sure you're all tilting your head from side to side, thinking "Uhhhhh earth to Kace?¿ What are you doing? You usually don't post stuff like this. This isn't you."

And you're right. I don't post this type of stuff. But this IS me. I used to write personal posts all the time on here, but once I began to monetize my blog, I strayed away from that and started focusing on beauty, fashion, DIYs, and things that every other blogger is currently doing.

I want to change that though. I want to be able to express myself on a more intimate level by discussing what's going on in my life, my deepest and darkest (well maybe not darkest) thoughts, and maybe even some controversial topics. I plan on occasionally writing more thoughtful blog posts in the midst of all the other posts that align with my niche and brand.

HOW CAN YOU LIVE WITHOUT ROCKSBOX?

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Lately, monthly subscription boxes are all the rage. There are so many amazing companies that offer this type of subscription including Birchbox, FabFitFun Box, and Barkbox (for the furry friend in your life).

But there is nothing like the Rocksbox!

LOOKBOOK: DREAMING OF DENIM

Friday, March 25, 2016

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share this post with y'all!

For such a long time, I have wanted to branch out and do my own lookbook. If you don't know what a lookbook is, you can watch this Christmas lookbook here made by my favorite blogger/youtuber, Zoella, or you can read one here written as a guest post on Earth to Kace by Abbey from The Fab Rehab!

I have finally mustered up the courage have pictures taken of myself and do one! And why not start it off revolving around one of the biggest trends for spring... DENIM!

No. 1
 
This look is perfect for a casual spring day. It's one of those outfits when you're too lazy to put on pants, still want to look cute, but also want to be extremely comfortable. Pairing a simple t-shirt dress with a stylish denim jacket (just in case it gets cold) and a cute pair of keds is such a gorgeous way to NOT live the phrase "beauty is pain". A definite must have for a day at the park or a quaint lunch date!

THE BEAUTY OF VASELINE

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Hello everyone!

If you follow me on Twitter, then you knew this post was going to happen sooner or later. Vaseline was so generous to send me an amazing care package after hearing about my horribly sunburnt lips from my recent trip to Cozumel, Mexico.
It was so sweet of them to think of me when putting together this little gift.

FUN THINGS TO DO FOR SPRING BREAK IN TEXAS

Friday, March 11, 2016

Spring break is so close, I CAN ALMOST TASTE IT!

The only thing standing in my way, is this last essay (which I'm putting off to write this blog post because I'm irresponsible and why not?) and then I'm off for a whole week. #blessed

If you're like me who dreams of travel and adventure but can't seem to afford a luxurious cruise or paradise getaway, here are some of the top things to do while staying in the lone star state.

FEBRUARY FAVORITES

Monday, February 29, 2016

I can't believe it's already the last day of February! Honestly, where has the time gone? Since the month is over and I haven't done one of these in a while (even though they're my favorite type of blog posts), IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER MONTHLY FAVORITES!

February has probably been the most stressful month I've had in a long while (beside October, thanks Blogtober!!!) and these things definitely got me through it! Here are my February Favorites!

PANASONIC DMC-ZS45 LUMIX: IS IT THE PERFECT VLOGGING CAMERA?

Thursday, February 25, 2016

Vlogging has become a huge part of my daily routine. Before I left on my trip to Cozumel, Mexico, I did enormous amounts of research on which camera is best for beginner vloggers that won't break the bank.
After weeks of youtube watching and blog reading, I decided to just take a leap of faith and order the Panasonic DMC-ZS45 LUMIX camera and I couldn't be happier. For such a simple camera, it does so much.

SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT: A BLISSFUL HAVEN

Saturday, February 13, 2016

As a part of my sponsorship program, those who purchase the "Blast Off" or "Out Of This World" package gets the opportunity for a Saturday Spotlight Interview or a guest post on Earth to Kace.

Lexi from A Blissful Haven is our lucky first interviewee, so without further ado here we go!!!

VALENTINE'S DAY BROWNIES

Friday, February 12, 2016

Valentine's Day is upon us and everybody's sweet tooth is in full gear. So it wouldn't be a proper Valentine's/Galentine's season without a tasty pink velvet and cream cheese brownie recipe!
This recipe is usually used with red velvet cake batter but since it is close to the day of love, I've decided to shake things up a bit and use PINK velvet cake batter (because we all know my favorite color is pink!)

Here's what you need.

50 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT ME

Thursday, February 4, 2016


I've recently come to the realization that there are so many of you who read this blog (more than I would have ever imagined) and I seriously I couldn't thank you all enough for that! So I wanted to let my guard down a little and let you know some things about me that most people don't know. Enjoy!

MEET MY AMAZING JAN. ADVERTISERS

Saturday, January 30, 2016

There has been so many exciting things in 2016 so far like getting my puppy, Odie, starting my spring semester at school, my first giveaway (CONGRATS AMANDA), and my new sponsorship program!

If you are interested in advertising with me, you can click here to see all of my different packages and prices! (Note: if the package says "BOOKED" that means it's booked for now and you can still purchase it. It will begin on the "start date" that is next to it!)

HOW COLLEGE STUDENTS BENEFIT FROM GETTING A PUPPY

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

GUYS! I have great news. JOHN AND I GOT A PUPPY!

His name is Odie, he's 3 months old, he's a Pitbull (Oh no! soooo scary... NOT!), and he's the sweetest thing there ever was!

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY PARENTS

Friday, January 15, 2016

Dear Mom & Dad,

I wanted to start off this letter by saying thank you for everything. I know I don't say it enough, but I truly mean it.

At this point in my life, I'm technically considered an adult. Yes, I know I don't act like it at times, but that's a part of life. I make mistakes, I learn from them, and I continue to grow. And as time goes on, I have realized how much you have done for me.

Ever since I was little, you have always been my number one support system. If it wasn't for you both and your unlimited encouragement, I wouldn't be the person I am today. I am truly lucky to have both of you as my parents. Parents who would selflessly do anything for their kids.

EXCITING NEW THINGS (+GIVEAWAY!!!)

Monday, January 4, 2016

HELLO 2016! Since it is a new year, I've decided to change up and introduce new things onto my blog! New year, New blog (AND NEW HAIR!), amiright?

Here on Earth to Kace, I am trying to expand my brand and involve myself in all things media through my blog. In order to do this, I'm really starting to look at this entire blog as a business.
