Life Update: Moving and Growing 🌱🏡

Okay, it’s been a good minute since I’ve done a life update and just chatted about what was going on in my little world so here I am with the tea!

Moving🎉

We are (finally!) moving house! I’ll be doing a blog post or YouTube video talking about what a horror it’s been living in my current apartment. But without going too deep, there are a lot of filthy people here and the rental office staff needs a training class on how to talk to people.

It’s super bittersweet. Even though I’m ready to go and have been for well over a year, this is our first place together. This is where we brought my son home to when he was born… it’s an interesting feeling I’m still getting used to.

YouTube Accomplishments

I’ve hit 100+ subscribers on YouTube and I’ve never been more excited! Not sure if y’all know, but the YouTube channel that is linked at the bottom of my posts is my personal beauty/lifestyle channel. I also have a family channel that I admit I’ve been neglecting. I’ve been taking my channel so serious, and it’s finally starting to benefit from my hard work! I’d be so thankful if you all subscribed Here! I’m still on the schedule of uploading Mondays and Fridays so I don’t disrupt my Wednesday post on here.

Blogging Accomplishments

My last update is mini blogger accomplishments I just want to document to look back on. I am now the brand ambassador for two amazing companies! The first is the Vliz app which I will link Here for IOS users. Vliz app is an awesome in between of YouTube and Snapchat! You create moments, and can save them and add on to them as much as you want. Built into the app is different editing, music, and filters allowing you to create whole vlogs or mini movies without all the equipment or editing! It’s literally taken over my use of Snapchat for videos since I can edit and add to it almost like a live feed! If you decide to check it out, be sure to subscribe to me so we can keep up with each other’s Vliz’s! My channel name is MelaLynnTV !

The second company I have the pleasure of working with is Vanity Planet! I will creating content and reviews soon for this company. This is important to me at least because it was the first company I actually pitched myself to! As a blogger reaching out to companies is scary and kind of gives me anxiety to be honest. I just played over and over in my head how they’d say no, but they didn’t and it seriously eased that fear of rejection!

Well I believe that’s more than enough of an update for now!

Till next time,

Lynn XOXO

Journal Prompt: I am thankful for what I have because…?

Hello my loves! I wanted to start utilizing my bullet journal better so I began to think of questions I could ask myself and write out the answers to better understand myself. I thought this would be a good process to share a lot of people have problems with self-awareness and knowing their true self. So I hoped this would help us all learn ourselves better and shine light on what we need to work on wishing ourselves.

I am thankful for what I have because…?

I’m so thankful for all I have because I know that I have a lot to lose. Understanding that if I’m ungrateful, and God takes everything from me I’d literally be left with nothing humbles me so much. I’m so in love with my little family, close friends, and overall living situation. I’d be so lost if I didn’t have everything and everyone that has been placed in my life.

Why are you thankful for what you have?

God has placed everyone and everything in my life at this time for a reason. It is my job to continue to be thankful and humble and continue growing and learning.

Overall

I hope you all get a clearer understanding of yourself in these prompts. I hope a door opens for you that you never thought you could open.

🍁Autumn Tag🍂

Hello lovelies! I recently came across the Autum tag on Britts blog and thought it was perfect for the season and I definitely wanted to participate!  The tag consists of 15 questions, so let’s hop in!


1. What Signifies Autumn To You?

Once the weather chills in the morning I am typically 100% ready to break out the pumpkin spice everything and super cozy sweaters lol this is my FAVOITE time of year!

I have a blog post all about this here, but my ultimate favorite thing to do is pop popcorn and watch movies with my daughter and son. 

3. What Is Your Most Fond Autumn Memory?

I would have to say it’s every year just before we enter the winter season we start decorating for Christmas. It’s so much fun setting up the tree and lights with my fiancé and children. They live for this time!

4. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Scent?

Every year I put on a pot of ingredients containing cinnamon , nutmeg and apples. It leaves the house smelling so good. It’s a scent that I remember from my childhood as my mother and her mother has made the same mixture.

Every year we go to the pumpkin patch just before Halloween and it’s the best. Seeing my daughter so excited and of course the blogger in me has to mention the amazing photo ops this setting gives you! 😉

6. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Song?

Honestly anything slow and mellow sets the season off for me. I’m more recently loving anything Lana Del Rey. But I wouldn’t be real if I didn’t mention that I began playing Christmas music September 25th to be exact haha! #SorryNotSorry

7. What Os Your Favorite Autumn Movie?

Honestly I’m a blood and gore type of girl. My first movie of choose has to be any of the Hellraiser series. The first, of course, is my absolute favorite!

 I suppose a cat or a bird of some sort. I just love to watch how relaxed my cat always is just bathing in the sun. Or a bird out stretching their wings, so free and uncontained. So refreshing!

13. Name One Place You Wish You Could Visit During Autumn?

We visited the Skyline Drive this summer for vacation. It was filled with Mountain View’s and and amazing pathways. I think it would be ten times more beautiful this time of year just to see all of the leaves on the trees changing colors and all of the beautiful leaves falling all you drive the amazing winding paths.
