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?

🍁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!

2. What Is The Best Way To Spend A Rainy Day?

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. 

5. What Are You Most Excited For This Autumn?

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!

8. What Shows Are You Most Looking Forward To This Autumn?

I absolutely LIVE for The Walking Dead. I always get so pumped and watch every single season before it returns every October. 

9. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Color?

The burnt oranges, mustard yellows and deep burgundy wine shades are always what I gravitate towards. They are the stapes for this season to me. 

10.  What Is Your Most Loved Outdoor Autumn Activity?

I love just stepping on the leaves, hearing the crunch. It’s so much fun. Especially when me and the kids make it a game to step on the most crunchy leaves we can!

11. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Fashion Trend?

I am in love with huge fluffy scarves and the pretty patterned scarves. I have about 3 or 4 amazing scarves I’m always dying to break out. 

12. If You Could Have A Familiar/Spirit Animal, What Would It Be?

 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. 

14. What Is Your Favorite Photo You Took Last Autumn?

Last year consisted of so many firsts since it was my sons first time experiencing this time of year. This photo of my babies at the pumpkin patch is definitely my favorite! 


15. What Are You Being This Halloween?

I created this Queen Of The Undead look on my YouTube and I think I’ll just do the same look and regular dress as we are taking the kids trick or treating!
