Long Time, No Blog

Long time, no blog. The same thing can be said about my YouTube channel, as well. See, I have been rather busy in the past two months what with moving to California and starting a new job and making loads of amazing friends...anyway, life has been good. YouTube has always been a hobby for me. A hobby that provides me with loads of incredible opportunities and has taken me all over the country and world and I am so grateful. But despite everything wonderful about it, it has always been a hobby and lately I haven't had time for hobbies. Additionally, a lot of things about YouTube have changed from the YouTube I joined when I was 14 years old. While change is something that I am not afraid of, I find that most of the changes I've seen have either been for the worse or just not to the style of YouTube that I want to be a part of at this point in my life.

As a result, I've just struggled with what I want to do about this change. When I've had time (which is almost never), I have actually recorded and edited videos but I just don't feel like they belong in this new YouTube world. I feel outdated and I'm not even that upset about it because I know that it was never going to be something I did forever. But even in this strange time, I really want to be sharing my life and my experiences and, in particular with this blog/channel, my passion for clothing and makeup. So I think until I start to feel natural on camera or on YouTube again, I'm going to be using this blog as an outlet.

For those of you only interested in beauty and fashion related things, I hope you can appreciate that this blog is called Kayley's Closet and no closet is complete without boxes of old photographs and souvenirs of experiences and memories, am I right? Anyway, I have to head off to work* now, but if you've missed me, know that I have missed this too and that I hopefully will be posting more on this blog until I get my video blogging life figured out. There are products that need photographing and outfits that need putting together and hopefully I'll have that update for you real soon. Until then, have a wonderful afternoon and--oh, I should probably share a little outfit post for you, shouldn't I?
Gotcha! ;) 

* For those of you who don't know, I am currently participating in the Disney College Program at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. I work in Tomorrowland Attractions, specifically I am a part of the Autopia Pit Crew. It's pretty wonderful to work in a place that is built around the idea of creating happiness and memories and I love being a very small part of that. 


  1. Taking breaks from hobbies that might no longer satisfy you as it once did is very healthy. You are clearly having a great time and enjoying yourself and that's what's most important. I'm excited to hear more about this awesome adventure!

  2. I'm simultaneously sad not to have your videos to look forward to (they're amongst my favorites on YouTube) and thrilled that you'll be posting more on your blog! As someone who only blogs and doesn't vlog, I think I totally understand your choice to scale back, and I'm excited to see more blog content, which I'm sure will be just as inspiring as all your other creations! Looking forward to hearing more about your "new life" in Anaheim :)
