Hey there!

Kiley is the name but some call me Gypsy. I acquired the nickname while in college because I was always on the go. You could call me a free-spirited person with few anchors.

I am 25 years young with a bachelors degree from the great Texas A&M University! Class of 2015, whoop! I am currently working on my masters online through Sul Ross State University and I plan to graduate in May of 2019. I was born on the Galveston Island, where the nights are warm and the salt grass grows. While the Texas Gulf Coast is home, I currently live in good ole’ west Texas! Where it’s windy as hell and everything either want’s to bite, sting, or prick ya!

The coolest thing going on in my life currently is the fact that we are expecting a little girl (Codi Lynn) in November! I enjoy the outdoors and all things agriculture. My favorite hobbies include riding my grey mare, keeping up with my blog (obviously), and styling outfits/modeling. I am a dreamer, a lover of sunlight, and consumed by wanderlust. I also would be a liar if I said I wasn’t addicted to Instagram! Ha ha, my handle is @southerngypsy_ …

I started my first blog in 2011 when I was a freshman in college. It started just as a fun outlet to explore my writing creativity and has grown into much more for me. I see it as an opportunity to motivate and encourage my readers. I enjoy sharing my journey through life and I hope that I am relatable! I aim to be down to earth, honest, and funny. You will hear real life stories about transitioning into a functioning adult including the good and bad that are brought along with it. My post will range from life experiences to agriculture advocacy and beyond. My style is somewhere between a hippie wild child and a punchy wannabe. I wouldn’t call myself a fashion guru, simply because I don’t exactly follow all the fashion trends. I would rather create my own fashion because style is what YOU make it. I like to share my adventures because I hope to inspire others to be themselves.

I now offer a range of options when it comes to meeting your marketing needs.

Custom quotes tailored to your needs.

Contact me today!





Like I said, these services are tailored to YOUR needs. We can package something together or simplify it as much as necessary! I’m here to help YOU and your business.

Social Media Management: 

Let me help you grow your business! I too, have a passion for small businesses and I know what it takes to juggle all the responsibilities of running a business + keeping up with social media. Services in this area range from full management of accounts (or a specific account) to helping create a schedule and content calendar. Accepting limited accounts due to the amount of time this consumes. It’s a must if you are a small business!

Digital Analytics: 

This works great alongside social media management. I will sit down and take a look at your analytics regarding websites, social, and mailing lists. Understanding your audience and competitors is essential to your ROI.


Don’t let these two scare you! Well, if they do intimidate you… I can help with that. These two are both essential tools, but oftentimes are over looked. Let me help you optimize these two important aspects of your website to grow traffic and ranking.


I do offer some photography here and there! I’ve been on both sides of the camera and understand what a customers wants since I have been the customer before! I offer a laid back vibe and enjoy making my models feel as comfortable as possible. I am located in the Lone Star State. Travel may be possible depending on my schedule. Shoot me an email for inquiries.

Speaking Engagements: 

I love to give public speeches! If you need a speaker and you like what I do, send me an email and let’s brainstorm to see if I’m the right fit for your event!



A Cry For Help

I’ve been asked the same question a lot lately. You know the “How has life been!?”

I think we all know how that scenario goes, we typically respond with something along the lines of “Oh, I’m doing great!” or “Doing good! How about you?” as we shift the limelight elsewhere.

A Ranch House Christmas

To me an ideal ranch Christmas is a warm lit fire place crackling and the smell of a real Christmas tree plus a hint of leather. Somehow there’s always leather. Am I right?


We are blessed to be welcoming a new life to the world and very excited to share our journey! I plan to keep you updated from gender announcements to nursery decorating and more. I am thrilled to share this new and life-changing experience with you all!
