Girl Talk // The Simple Girl

I was first introduced to Kinsey on A Beautiful Mess when she first began doing the sweetest, most inspiring DIY's! I was so happy when I found her blog and truly enjoy reading it on a daily basis. I think she is sweet and simple, and absolutely beautiful. She is a talented photographer and a true inspiration. I know you all will love her!

What is your job title?
Photographer and DIY contributor for Red Velvet Art.

What do you love about yourself?
I love that I am able to live a beautiful life, not by my own doing by any means, and that makes it all the more wonderful. I am truly blessed to share this journey with some of the most admirable people I know to exist. 

Who is your role model?
The every day heroes that dedicate their lives to helping others and have a genuine love for everyone they encounter. To me, that's truly a life worth living. 

What inspires you?
I'm constantly inspired by the hidden beauty all around us. If we truly just took the time to notice each day, we would realize we encounter inspiration at its best on a daily basis. There is something magical about the way light bounces off of objects, sound echoes off the walls, and colors blend so perfectly. I guess it's the photographer in me, but seeing that still shot of beauty captured is not only inspiring, but irreplaceable. 

What are five words that describe you?
In no particular order: adventurous, diligent, spontaneous, thoughtful, and empathetic.

What is your biggest insecurity?
I would have to say that all of my insecurities combined are a result of the same controversy; fear of failure. I try to remind myself when doubt creeps in, that to fail is but another stepping stone to success. 

If you could be anyone for a day?
I have a slight obsession with Zooey Deschanel, so I would have to go with her. The thought of someone being so  adorable, witty, beautiful, and comical should make me desperately jealous. But on the contrary, it makes me love her all the more. If not Zooey, I'd say an it is an even tie between my fictional obsessions, Rory, from Gilmore Girls, and the ever so adorable Claire, from Elizabethtown.

Thanks so much for chatting with us Kinsey! If you ladies would like to get to know Kinsey a bit better, or are in need of some fabulous DIY ideas, hop on over to her blog, or A Beautiful Mess, where she is a contributor.
