    101 in 1001

    Hi y’all, I’ve done a few 101 in 1001 posts, and while I’ve accomplished a lot of things on them, I’ve never finished one. My goal for this one is to finish one, or at least be 90% done. This would mean accomplishing at least 91 items. I’m starting this list on May 15, 2020 and 1001 days is February 10, 2023. If you haven’t heard of one of these lists before, McKenzie Horan from design darling created this a while back. Here’s her latest list. I like to break mine up into different categories just to keep it a little more organized. Career/Grad School Graduate with my M. Ed…

    Influencing Needs to Change

    Hi y’all, I have had something weighing on my heart lately, especially with COVID-19 going on and so many people affected financially. I’ve noticed a trend, especially recently amongst influencers/bloggers. The trend I’ve been seeing is influencers, no matter the medium in which they connect with others, are taking every sponsorship and partnership that is coming their way. I know that they probably receive hundreds, if not thousands, of offers they refuse every month. However, when someone reads multiple blogs by different people, and they are all promoting the same exact product, and using almost the same exact words, it seems…fake. Last week, I was watching Youtube, and a video…

    5 Blogging Accounts You Need

    Hi y’all, I keep seeing tons of posts on Pinterest about how to magically gain viewers… Most of these posts link to something that is asking you to pay money for some service. Whether it is an ebook, virtual course, or another service. Newsflash: in today’s day and time you don’t need to pay for anything besides the host for your website. You need to have the following accounts to help you out: Canva/Photoshop. These are the two best options for you to create collateral, or images for your blog, social media, etc. I even created by logo on it! You can create intros and outros for YouTube on Canva…

    Mother’s Day

    Hi y’all, Happy Mother’s Day! There are never enough thanks for all our moms do for us. They deserve more than one single day of recognition. I could go on and on about the great things my mom does for me and helps me with on a daily basis. From reading papers to making sure I have food to eat (even now at 26). Thanks for all you do! xx, Lindsey Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Youtube | Bloglovin’

    Shop Local: Cheatham Snail Mail

    Hi y’all, Today is another Shop Local post! Snail Mail is a family owned card business in Rockville, Va. The owner, Carrie, and I actually go all the way back to high school.

Carrie is super passionate about serving others, and she incorporates this into her business. Every quarter, she picks a non-profit that supports immigrants for…

    Top Tips to Handle Anxiety During Social Distancing

    Hi y’all, Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through another week. Staying inside or away from other people is often not easy. Humans are meant to be social, even if you’re an introvert (like me!). This might mean that right now you have more anxiety than you normally would. Read a book-take some time and slip away into another world. You can check out this post for some suggestions on inexpensive/free books!   Go for a walk/run. Even though some trails, school tracks, and gyms are closed, you can still go for a walk or run around the neighborhood, city streets, etc.   Even if you just have some cans of beans,…

    Cleaning my Classroom

    Hi y’all, As you know, schools nationwide are closed for the rest of the year. My school district recently got permission for us to come in and clean up our rooms for the end of the year. I went on Friday last week to clean up my room and prepare it for the normal summer cleaning. I went ahead and vlogged it. I definitely did a little more than usual (normally my kids clean out their own cubbies).
