Inspired by their passion and enthusiasm, we took eight individuals on a journey to the wilds of Oregon. Read below to find out more about one of the inspiring people featured in our Holiday 2012 campaign.
Meet Kelsey: a blogger from Oceanside, CA. Kelsey likes trying new things and believes it’s valuable to learn something from every experience. Even though she writes a blog, she likes taking pictures with actual film. Blogging and photography aren’t her only outlets of creativity as she enjoys expressing herself through her outfits – the crazier her outfit the more confident she feels.
To get to know the personalities of our holiday cast we took a peek inside their suitcases and had them describe the contents in their own words. Take a look at what Kelsey can’t live without.
I like to collect little things and I travel a lot for work so these items are a way to help me stay sane on my trips and have been accumulated along the way. I like to take film photos so I always have my camera on me! In my spare time I make collages, zines, mix tapes and other creative projects. This collage is about releasing your energy into the universe. I like to mirror image the photos I use so they become abstracted and you can’t tell what their literal meaning is anymore. In this collage I used coral, snow mountains, glaciers, the moon, and clouds. My small objects inspire me. I like to play my recorder in down time on jobs or to make people laugh.
Are you a free spirit or the creative type like Kelsey? Let us know in the comments below.
