cae2xuuuaaejnzs

Most of you guys recognize Kylee Russell as Corbin Bleu’s adorable TV sister. Ever since Disney’s ‘Jump In’ aired in early 2007, the 20 year old actress has made her own name for herself. Guest starring on hits such as ER, Girl Meets World, Just Jordan, & Modern Family put her on the map! This beauty also has a hidden talent: she can sing. Plus, her fashion statements are the BOMB. Style steal coming atcha soon 😉

You may recognize her sister, Chelsea Tavares, who’s also in the acting business. The two are peas in a pod. Kylee is such a doll, and I had the best time doing this interview. Surgeon’s Warning: You may fall in love with her. Read ahead at your own risk.

What was it like working with such an amazing cast on Girl Meets World? Favorite person to work with? Girl Meets World was SO much fun to work on! I loved every single person on that set! Cast and crew! They are all unbelievably talented and were an honor to work with. Plus I got to see Cory and Topanga in action. They will forever be couple goals!

Is it true you guest starred on Modern Family, but totally forgot to watch the episode? Haha, have you watched it yet? What was your experience like on set? YES!! ? I guest starred, had the cutest costume (70’s disco chick) and was in a scene with Rico Rodriguez. But yeah, I totally missed the episode and just kept missing it every time it came on and I’ve still yet to see it!

Out of everyone you’ve worked with, who do you stay in touch with the most? There’s a good amount of people that I stay in touch with mainly through social media but I’d have to say KeKe Palmer. We were like family before Jump In and I absolutely adore her.?

What projects are you working on now? I can’t say much on it now BUT it’s an exciting one and can’t wait for everyone to see it.

You’re well known for your ADORABLE role as Karin from Jump In. How do you feel it has played a part in your acting career today? Jump In definitely pushed me further in my career. And also reassured me that I wanted to act for the rest of my life. When it first came out I was no longer “Kylee”, I was “the girl from Jump In” and I didn’t mind. ? It was an amazing experience and I’m forever thankful.

What your favorite fan interaction by far? I received a fan letter from Germany and she told me I inspired her to pursue her dreams. And reading/hearing that from fans truly makes my day and encourages me to never give up and keep on going.

I’ve watched your vlogs & I’m a long time subscriber! What advice do you have for others who want to start vlogging? What camera do you use? Oh no way!! Thank you!!❤️ Well first things first, just be yourself! Post what YOU want to post and have fun with it. I always wanted to vlog but never started right away because I didn’t think people would find my life interesting. But then I was like “you know what? I’m just doing this for fun! If people like it, great! If they don’t, oh well.” And I film on an iPhone 7! The camera is bomb!

If you guys wanna check out her YouTube channel I’ll leave the link here. You can follow her on Instagram @kyleerussell & Twitter @kylee_mrussell & Snapchat @kyleerussell! Thanks for reading!

Pentatonix & Us the Duo: live at Bon Secours!

I STILL can’t believe so many people showed up for an a cappella concert. Before we get to that, let’s talk about Us the Duo. Micheal & Carissa Alvarado. All they had was a piano & a mic but they were breathtaking. They truly tried to express themselves through their music. Carissa even sat on the corner of the stage and LITERALLY sang to the crowd. I can’t think of anyone better to open for Pentatonix.

Before I knew it, Pentatonix were rising from the bottom of the stage. Screaming came from every which direction as they bounced onto the platform one after the other. Avi Kaplan, Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Mitch Grassi. What left me awestruck was the fact that each voice seemed complimented all the others. According to some nearby fans, Mitch is the fashionista of the group so he’s definitely my next “style steal” victim 😉

I’ll leave the setlist and a bunch of other cool pics below! Of course, I happen to leave my camera at home so everything are compliments of Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus.

My Phone Was Stolen in Myrtle Beach!

 

It was spring break 2k16 at the Monatary Bay Suites. Palm trees gently brushed the crisp air. I traveled to Myrtle Beach with an iPhone 5 & came home empty handed.

On the last night my friends Janae, Qieana & I went walking down the boardwalk. There wasn’t a soul on the beach, everyone seemed to be caught up in all the hype. Horns were blaring as we squeezed through the crowds of spring breakers. To my left, four girls jumped out of their car at the red light and started dancing in the street at the beat of the crowd. We proceeded to make a turn into a cute little souvenir shop. Hoodies & t-shirts seemed to swallow us up.

As we trailed down the scattered aisles, we stopped at the messy counter. While my friends were talking to the store employee, I set my phone down & lost focus. As we head out the store, my mind was on the ice cream shop on the corner. Little did I know that as we were leaving, the thieves passed right by us. Five minutes later we raced back to the store to retrieve my phone. It was nowhere to be found. My friends frantically called an employee over. She frightenly said that the guys who came in at the same we left, took it while at the register. All frustration aside, we asked for a description. One had a red hoodie and the other had a black t-shirt. On spring break. In Myrtle Beach. Population: 27,109. After hours of searching, my friends were so supportive. They actually went up to these guys in a group who fit the description PERFECTLY and asked them to empty their pockets. Even though we couldn’t find anything, we only searched the two.

I suddenly remember that we arrived in an Uber! Janae quickly called our driver but sadly, it was nowhere to be found. To be honest, the worst part of the entire experience is having to loose all my memories. When we got back home, a few days later I got an iPhone 6 plus.

As I’m typing this, my phone is laying right beside my keyboard. I’ve still got all my contacts, my notes, and my Candy Crush progress. I lost all my photos/videos. The concerts, the shows, my friends. I felt like a huge part of my life was missing. Then I had a revelation. All my memories swirling around in my head, I usually type up. I don’t need videos. I don’t need a “timeline”. I have ME. I have my writing. I don’t need media to show you guys my experiences, when I can use my words to put you IN them. Yes, I may have lost one of the only good selfies I had. But in the end, I have all I need. Pizza Hut on speed dial. Til’ next time Myrtle Beach!

“Society taught us how to hate. Hate taught us violence. Violence taught us regret. Regret taught us pain. Pain taught us love. Love taught us how to laugh and laughter makes every moment far more beautiful then we could ever imagine.” -Robert M. Drake
