DIY: Live Like Ke$ha

July 16, 2013

Today I'm letting the most adorable Kailagh take over The Unreal Life, and I know it's in good hands. She has quickly grown to be one of my favorite bloggers to interact with. Her posts are charming, sincere and witty. So. Take it away, Kailagh. 

Hello ladies & gents! I'm Kailagh, I blog over at Love Always, Freckles. I blog about my everyday life, recipes, DIY's, my adventures of being a unicorn, and many delicious drinks. I want to specially thank Autumn for letting me come to the Unreal side and blog for you guys.

love always, freckles

I would consider myself a pretty outgoing, crazy person. The perfect way to describe my current life is the new Ke$ha album. Maybe not as intense, however. The reason I bring this up is because, while I was thinking about what I should write for this guest post, her song Die Young came on the radio. Instantly, millions of lightbulbs went off in my head. Like paparazzi status. I knew what to write about. How the average person can live their life with a Ke$ha attitude, going off her new album, Warrior.

In her first song titled Warrior, she sings about going out, being misunderstood, and embracing every bit of it. In the lines.

We were born to break the doors down, 
fight until the end. 
It's something that's inside of us, 
it's how its always been, yeah. 

Okay, now with those words in your head, you are about to go out. You might be a little timid, you could be in a new place, or out with new people. But you need to channel this song and remember You Are A Warrior. You "flirt with disaster" and "cut the bullshit out like a dagger" Don't be afraid. You are a strong women who walks into a room and runs it. Being your best self, and having confidence, not letting others ruin your night is what this song is.

Her song Die Young, the one currently on the radio, have you heard it? Have you embraced the lyrics?!

Young hearts, out our minds
running 'til we outta time
Wild child lookin' good
living heard just like we should. 
Don't care who's watching when we tearing it up. (You know)
That magic that we got nobody can touch (For sure)

You can apply this mentality anywhere. Going out, at work, at school, literally everywhere you need this. You need to look good! My moto : the world is your runway! Work it all the time, you never know when you are gonna meet the person of your dreams. Who cares what people think? When constantly faced with the fear of people not liking you, it can hold you back. Why does it matter what other people think. Just like Dr. Seuss said "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive as Youer than you" (Dr. Seuss and Ke$ha in the same post is sorta strange) But here it applies. The magic inside of you, is something special. Embrace it! Like the song says "we're gonna die young" don't let people control you.

The last song I want to touch on, is the song All That Matters (The Beautiful Life) the line I'm gonna use is controversial. But before you get your panties in a bunch, read all of it and I will explain.

Been spending too much energy,
on stupid shit, when honestly. 
I wanna get high, just wanna get high
With everyone else here. 

I'm not saying you should go literally get high, let that be said. I like this quote because it is to the point. We, as nation, spend way to much time and energy on worrying and complaining about "stupid shit". Why? Why on earth do we do that. I have found that must people sabotage their own happiness. Well, when I am truly happy I feel incredible. One could say I am high on life! So really surround yourself with people who make you better, who you want to see succeed, and who are true to you. When you do this, you become happy, your happiness rubs off on other people, and then everyone is so happy. Hence the high feeling.

You see, literally everyone can live like Ke$ha. It all depends on how you interpret the lyrics. You need to channel your inner Ke$ha with confidence, a strong attitude, being happy all the time, and loving the crap out of your Unreal life! Do you channel a singer when going out, or for a confidence boost? Will you start now? Thanks for letting me share my thoughts on this :)
