I’m flattered you want to know about me and my blog! Thank you. Hey, I’m Rebecca Kelsey Sampson! I started using my first and middle name online in middle school (hence the blog name) and it just stuck.
My personal goal with this blog is to document my daily activities as I try to live a fulfilling life. I want to help others find joy in their lives, whether it be because of your favorite foundation or a cool breeze. I enjoy learning about new topics or products and sharing them. So this blog has become a mismatch of beauty, lifestyle, personal inspirations, DIY projects, and vlogs from my everyday life. I love to share my personal thoughts and feelings so at times this blog becomes like a diary. This blog has helped me meet some amazing people and has given me more opportunities than I ever could have imagined.
As for me, I’m just a normal 23 year old girl that has a lot to share. I graduated college with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Psychology. I live with my fiance Chris (see our engagement story and follow our wedding updates here). We became homeowners in October 2013. I’m still in shock about it. Chris and I are documenting our adventures on our daily vlogging channel Daily Random Happenstance!
Through out my young life I went through a million dreams and possible careers. Little girl me wanted to be a singer, back-up dancer, hair stylist, or a fashion designer. From about second grade until junior year of high school I dreamed of being an artist. I got scared of an uncertain future, became “practical Becca”, and started pursuing nursing and then accounting when I joined university. I was miserable with both choices.
Then one day in the end of my junior year in college I started watching beauty gurus on YouTube. I became obsessed and watched easily over 20 videos a day. This went on for a few months before I finally worked up the courage to start making videos myself. I fell in love with the video making process and wanted to share as much as I could with my viewers, hence RebeccaKelsey.com was born in my senior year of college. I changed my major then to Marketing so I could learn how to better promote and “sell” my blog and I took a minor in Psychology…. Honestly, so I could take psychology classes that had to do with children! Motherhood is something I’m really looking forward to a few years down the road.

Out the window went “practical Becca” and what emerged was the girl you see today. I’m now working to fully sustain myself financially through this blog and as the social engagement manager at girl-karma. I feel so grateful that I am able to earn a living doing something I love rather than ending up in a job that makes me feel miserable. I also just became a contributing writer to HowToKiss.com!
I hope you enjoy my website and stick around for the ride, I’d love to get to know you. Comments are very much encouraged and I’d love to talk to you more on my Twitter and Facebook, I’m always looking to make new friends!
