My 1 Year Blogging Anniversary🎉

Without even realizing it fully, my one year blogging anniversary has come and gone. I wasn’t sure I wanted to write a full post on it, so I screenshot a few pics of the memory on Facebook and the WordPress app. The more I thought on it, I wanted to make this post so I can better explain my why. Why I got into blogging, YouTube and being an Influencer.

One Year Ago

A year ago I had just got more comfortable being a stay at home mother. I felt like me being home wasn’t good enough. I needed to find something I could do for me. Something that made me happy outside of my family. I got a part time job at Torrid…that I quit the same day haha! For one they didn’t respect that I couldn’t work yet due to health reasons after having my son, and while I thought I’d love it… being there didn’t make me happy. I missed my babies.

Melanin Mommie

If you’re one of my day one blog readers, you know that my original blog was called Melanin Mommie. I wanted to show my creativity as far as beauty and share my parenting ups and downs. I loved it. I’ve always loved writing and I’ve kept quite a few diaries and was even in Journalism in school! This was feeling more and more like what I wanted to do. I didn’t know that their were people actually making money from blogging at the time, but this was fun. It was creative. It was starting to be my passion.

Growth

After looking into how to take blogging more seriously, I went through a major revamp. Changing the name and general direction of my blog. Neverchilllynn was my very first Twitter handle before I completely deleted all of my social media when I was going through major life changes. I felt like it was only right to continue where I had left off by using the same name.

Loving My Path

While I’m in no way a blogging expert, I’ve learned so much from this community. I feel so blessed that I have so many amazing people rooting for me, whenever there have been times I haven’t even been rooting for myself. The blogging community has taught me so much about writing, my creativity and where I see myself in life! This blog has grown so much and I never expected it to. I’m so thankful for everyone who has believed in me and love my content!

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

My Hush Wishlist 👛

Hush is an LA based affordable and trendy beauty site! They literally have every kind of product you could ever dream of on the site! I’ve been eyeing this company for a while, but haven’t been able to make a purchase with our moving date approaching so quickly ( I know, I know. I’ll get to that another day). So today I thought I’d share my wishlist!

Website

As you can see, they have a cute pastel website with easy to navigate menus. The menus have a tone of categories to help you find what you need.

Hush App

The Hush app, which you can downloaded for IOS here is also super easy to navigate and even has a personalized section based on past orders or browsing! Here I also showed the section for your wishlist!

My Wishlist

The Royals Eyeshadow palette is super stunning and a seemingly dead on dupe for the ABH Modern Renaissance palette! For $10 as opposed to the $40+ for the ABH palette, how could you not want to try it out!

The NYX eyebrow gel has been around for so long. I’ve heard nothing but great reviews, and would love to switch up my brow products to give this a shot!

I’ve never used a primer oil before. Being an oily girl it’s something I should probably steer away from. But, It’s certainly intriguing and I’d love to give it a go!

Since changing my lifestyle to Vegan I’d like to eventually be cruelty free for beauty products as well! This would be a fresh addition to my collection.

I’ve recently been getting more and more into skin care, and haven’t found an eye cream I’d like. I’ve heard good reviews for the elf illuminating eye cream.

Last but not least is the Milani matte lip cream in Loved. It’s a beautiful shade very different than any I have, plus I’ve never tried their lip products so it would be a fist as well!

Have you shopped at Hush before? Thoughts?
