bells + whistles.

Bells + Whistles is a blog about my experiences in getting to a successful career, past, present & future. The purpose of this blog is to provide guidance, advice, and hopefully a good sense of humor to not so great situations we may go through in life.

Bells + Whistles began as a personal style, beauty & travel blog in 2016. Over the past couple years, as I immersed myself more and more into the blogger/influencer community, I felt like not only the community in general was lacking substance, but what I myself was putting out into the world was also lacking substance. I always want to help people, I always want to give advice when I can and hope that it can be helpful to someone like my younger self.


About Kelsey

Currently, I live in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia in an apartment that looks like it was sponsored by Urban Outfitters. I work as a social media coordinator & marketing director for HOT•BED, an art gallery in Center City, and Hoffman Design Group, a Philly-based horticulture design company.

I started Bells + Whistles about 3 years ago, as a fashion, beauty & travel blog. Although it’s been a fun creative outlet for me, I know I have a lot more to offer than my opinion of “the hottest trends of 2019”. I know that my story is unique and could help a lot of people learn and relate, so I wanted to focus a little more on career advise and life things, but still include the fun things that I love - style, beauty, travel.



I'd love to here feedback from you guys! E-mail me! Tweet me! Message me on facebook, instagram, whatever! Any advice, criticism, compliments, etc. are extremely helpful. I can't explain how much hard work I've put into this and how grateful I am that you've taken the time to come check it out.

Sincerely, thank you all so much.
