About Me

My name is Keely.  I’m a wanna-be hipster and when I’m not chatting with you here on Hair Bows and Butter I’m working my way through a career in television (I promise, it’s not quite as glamorous as you think).  I’m a young 20something and I have a passion for baking, mainly cupcakes but I occasionally like to branch out into other forms of baking (just not sugar cookies, I apologize that there will never be sugar cookies posted on this blog).  I love to edit recipes and try and turn them into something new and unique!  Sometimes it’s a fail (white tea and white grapefruit cupcakes) and sometimes it’s a smashing success! (spiced apple and blackberry cupcakes).  Once I’m done baking I aim to keep my newly grown out hair all tied up so that I don’t have to use my straightener (I’m a bit of a hippie when it comes to my hair) so some instructions on that will be coming your way as well.  Feel free to ask me anything, I can’t wait to get to know you!

Thanks for stopping by, make sure to keep checking back for new and exciting things!  Here’s the current “schedule”

Sunday School-check in every other Sunday for a tutorial ranging from Sangria to crafts, something that I found inspiring and wanted to share.

Cupcake Tuesday-Monday nights are usually my baking nights, which means you get to see the results on Tuesdays.  Make sure to check in every Tuesday for a new recipe!

Whimsical Wednesday-On Wednesdays I share with you all the beauty that I find inspiring, sometimes themed, sometimes random, it’s a great way for me to share some of myself (and potential plans) with you wonderful people!

Thrifted Thursday-I’ll post photos of one awesome thing I’ve picked up a thrift store recently, possible tips on how to style it and some of my rules on thrifting!

Weekly Wrap Up-On Friday’s I’ll post all of my Instagrams from the week before.  This way you can see the day-to-day and the way I see the world, and the way I find the beauty in my world.

Soundtrack Saturday-On Saturday’s I feature one video of a song that I’ve enjoyed in the past week.  This could be a local, Denver band or an incredibly popular national (or international) band.  It depends largely on my mood and the course of my week.

A bit more about me. (Part of Me, Myself and I)

1. What is your biggest phobia? 
I think my biggest fear is of failure.  It scares me to try new things because I worry that I won’t succeed. It’s the type of fear that ends up keeping me from starting, but I try my best to overcome (hello blog!).
2. If you could relive any day of your life, what would it be and why? 
So far in my life I would probably say that I would want to relive the day I left for London.  I was traveling alone, no big deal, but I was flying internationally for the first time.  My flights had changed times and instead of a 2 hour layover in Chicago I had a 10 hour layover in Chicago, over night,  from 10pm to 8am.  I was miserable but it was a really life changing day for me.  I learned a lot about faith and independence.
The most private spot I could find in the airport.  I did my best to sleep there, didn’t really sleep at all.
3. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be? 
Older than I am now.  I know it’s weird, but every year I love getting older.  I have a lot of friends who are older than I am and every year I hope to feel more their age.  Every year I still get comments about how young I am, no matter how much older I get they will also continue to age at the same pace.
4. Which celebrity do you get mistaken for? 
I have never once been mistaken for a celebrity.  Guess that means I’m unique 🙂
5. What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
Mumford and Sons (White Blank Page, really that’s just the way I see life), David Crowder (How He Loves, hello tears!), Parachute (Forever and Always, I mean really people it’s the sweetest/saddest song ever and I love it).  This list could easily change within the next 24 hours, but for now this’ll do.

I hope you stop by often, I love having you here!
