Why I Love Tori Kelly

If you know me at all, you know that I am pretty vocal about my admiration for the angel-on-earth that is Victoria Loren Kelly. I can't exactly pinpoint when this obsession first came about, but it has been semi-full force for quite some time. Last November I had the amazing opportunity to see her perform live in Indianapolis and from there my love for her just blossomed. If you aren't convinced she is the best, or you're just curious as to why I love her so much then keep reading!

Those pipes, girl!

This was probably the first and still most prevalent reason of why I love her. HER VOICE IS SO FLIPPIN' GOOD. Everything she sings sounds effortlessly beautiful and I love it and hate it all at the same time- mostly love, though.

Her faith in Jesus

Although she isn't a Christian singer, she does not hide the fact that she loves the man upstairs, and I applaud her. Throughout her journey in the entertainment industry, her faith has still remained at the forefront and that's so rare but incredible to see these days.

That HAIR!

I have very curly hair and my hair almost never looks like hers. If I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with her, I would tell her so many things, and ask her probably more, but I would 100% ask her to teach me how to style my hair like hers.

She is a lyrical genius

Tori Kelly has some of the most relevant and inspiring lyrics, at least to me. She has a song for every occasion; a jam session in the car, a break-up, a make-up, getting ready in the morning, anything.

These are some of my favorite lines of her songs.

"Baby who knows, maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes. God made me sexy I don't care if only I know." -Unbreakable Smile

"Don't let them tell you you're not, just give it all that you've got, cause you are more than enough, you're something beautiful." -Something Beautiful

"Sometimes you may crawl, let them think that you're small, cause it's so worth the fall when you land where you want to." -Daydream

This post could probably be a mile long, but I'll just leave it at that. If you have never listened to anything by Tori Kelly I linked her YouTube channel so you have no excuses. She is so talented, and so underrated as far as I am concerned.


  1. Learned something new about TK! Maybe you should tweet her about the hair pointers 😊

    1. I tweet her at least once a day probably with no reply. but maybe one day!

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
