The Have-A-Heart for CANFAR campaign has started, where 2,000 schools across Canada are selling Heart-O-Grams to raise money and spread awareness on HIV/AIDS. The CANFAR Team, KC Team & I stopped by Riverdale Collegiate to help sell Heart-O-Grams! MuchMusic stopped by to film us in action for my interview with them later that day. I had so much fun visiting the students there, meeting some amazing fans & signing autographs! A big thank you to all the students, teachers & staff at Riverdale for amazing reception!! I hope to go back someday and perform for you guys!! Stay tuned for a behind the scenes video!
Check out this cool video!
Happy 1 Year Anniversary to my amazing official fansite, LuvKC Fansite and a BIG thank you to the entire LKC team who go hard for me each and every single day! I love you guys!
Check out my welcome video for their site!
New Years was a success!! Ray & I spent time with great people, did a beautiful dinner over looking the city & partied the night away! What did you guys do? Any New Years Eve traditions or superstitions? I always write a list of goals every year & divide them into 2 month periods so I can keep track & do some “course correcting”. I’m all about accomplishing goals & being productive! What are your Resolutions??
It’s incredible how a few days in the sun can totally change how you feel about Winter. Before my surprise trip to Isla Mujeres, Cancun, I was dreading the winter. “Noooo, I’m not ready!!” But a few days of heat, the beautiful beach and a great tan changed it. Now I’m actually looking forward to the snow, the Holidays & hopefully doing some fun winter activities (Ski resort etc,.) Hopefully I’ll make a few more weekend trips to Cancun in the next 2 months. I wanted to share these personal photos of my trip! The pictures put me in a great mood, I love looking at them!
After a long year of hard work, we all deserve a little bit of a vacation! Try to find a way to get yourself out somewhere warm! Although Seasonal Depression (S.A.D) is a difficult condition for some, many of us, unfortunately experience the “Winter Blue’s” or some symptoms of the real deal. Symptoms of the Winter Blue’s are very common & something many people (especially up north) go through. It’s when you feel depressive symptoms like low energy, wanting to sleep more, fatigue, cravings for lots of carbs, becoming less social so missing out on social activities to stay inside, and all around just feeling grumpy. The reason for this is very simple – you NEED sunlight! Depending on your geographical location, many places are dark and cloudy during the winter. We all need sunlight, serotonin, Vitamin D, etc,. When late-fall/winter kicks in, we lose a lot of our sunlight & during this time we have more dark days, than sun filled ones. It’s totally normal to feel a bit down but know that – it’s natural and fixable. I’ve definitely felt tired & less social during the winter months and figured out my solution – I take Vitamin D, change the lightbulbs throughout my home into brighter & stronger ones and exercise more! If exercising is too boring for you – a great solution – try the Wii Fit! Oprah.com has come good ideas also!! (Note: If you feel like your symptoms are severe & extreme bouts of depression are occurring, you should talk to your doctor immediately!)
Of course I order something basic lol
I loved this place!
I brought my under water camera! It films & takes cool photos under the water!
I hope these photos convinced you to take a vaycay!!!
Love you guys!! xo
A while back (August 12), I tweeted the above pic introducing you all to my Minx nails with my beloved electric guitar (that I played in my Test Drive video). I got them done for 1 of my album photo shoots & for the Test Drive video. Now it’s time I put you on again, but with 2 new styles I LOVE – Lace & 3D
Minx: I fell in love.
Minx is an adhesive applied to your nails. It gets smoothed on & put under a heat lamp so it sticks perfectly. It’s fast, It doesn’t damage your nails, can stay on for weeks & there’s NO drying time!! So no worrying about smudging or walking around like a diva cause u can’t touch or do anything while its wet lol..
My Minx Tech Mich came to the condo & did my hands & feet in “Sasha Fierce Silver”. Which turns out to be the first & last time that color gets used on anyone that’s not Beyonce, as Beyonce has the color blocked since it’s her “signature” color & was used for the “Single Ladies” video. (Now that’s fierce!) Unfortunately, I found this out after I fell in love with it & wanted to do it again. I love Minx so much, they offered to create an exclusive color just for me & include it in retail! I’m thinking a nude-pink color with crazy glitter/sheen! Thoughts? (It be super cool to bring my color when I hit the tour bus to share with my girl fans across the country!)
Mich is awesome! She came on set of the video and we did hands & feet in gold, than pink, then silver!
To learn more about Minx, check it out here & see where you can find a nail tech near you! It’s the same price as a regular mani/pedi!
I recently heard about new hot ways to do our nails! Lace Nails and now 3D Nails!
Lace: I really love this & it’s very easy to do. Surprisingly, if you bring the color lace you want, there are some nail tech’s around that will do it for you! All you have to do is ask!
3D: This is my new favorite thing and something my girl Cassie put me on to – 3D Nails! Here’s a picture of Cass rocking them! Stay tuned for her new album coming out next year!
Finding nail tech’s skilled enough to do the above things is a task, but well worth it – especially if it’s a special occasion! You’d be surprised to find that their ARE some places in your area that can do it, and do it right!
Now the question – Which do YOU prefer??
Do you have a snuggie? And if so, how much do you love it? lol
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – 12/01/10) -
Every 12 seconds, someone in the world is infected with HIV. Today, the need to find a cure for AIDS through research is critical as young adults account for a growing percentage of new HIV cases.
This World AIDS Day, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Juno award-winning recording artist Keshia Chante as its national Youth Ambassador. Today at Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square, Chante will rally together with CANFAR volunteers and MuchMusic VJ Sarah Taylor to mark World AIDS Day by creating Canada’s largest red ribbon.
“At CANFAR, we believe this generation of young adults has the power to lower the incidence of HIV infection in Canada. Having an ambassador like Keshia, who connects with Canada’s youth, is critical,” said Christopher Bunting, president, CANFAR. “Keshia is a talented artist, a great role model and extremely passionate about the AIDS cause. We are thrilled to have her as a partner.”
Twenty-five per cent of all new HIV diagnoses in Canada are young adults (aged 15-24), and more than half of all Canadian grade nine students wrongly believe there is already a cure or vaccine. In addition, a quarter of sexually active young adults admit that their last sexual encounter was unprotected. The lack of awareness surrounding HIV/AIDS among this audience is approaching an all-time high, not unlike in the 1980′s when very little was known about the disease.
“The status of HIV/AIDS among young adults in this country is shocking,” said CANFAR Youth Ambassador Keshia Chante. “I’m humbled by the opportunity to join CANFAR in the fight to end AIDS through research and help spread awareness and prevention messages to Canada’s youth.”
CANFAR urges Canadians to show their support by wearing a red ribbon and joining the fight to end AIDS. CANFAR will distribute over 100,000 red ribbons across the country on World AIDS Day. Canadians can show their support for AIDS research by getting their virtual red ribbon at www.endaids.ca.
The Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research is Canada’s only independent charitable foundation dedicated to eliminating HIV/AIDS through research. By funding promising Canadian HIV/AIDS research and spreading awareness through education campaigns, CANFAR is working to end AIDS globally. Since 1987, CANFAR has awarded $17 million to HIV/AIDS research projects. Visit CANFAR.com or endAIDS.ca for more information.
