Happy Solar Eclipse Day everyone! How cool is it that we get to experience a total eclipse? I’m so excited about it, and since it’s a pretty big deal & even a part of history here in the U.S., I decided to dedicate an entire post to it. I’m taking this opportunity to relate the eclipse to some inspirational OOTD’s – an all white look (daylight), a B&W style (the transition into the dark), and then of course an LBD to represent the total blackout that we’ll experience today!
I thought this would be a great way to showcase some really chic looks since black/white outfits are so classic and high-end, and I’m sure you all know by now that I’m a huge fan of wearing lots of B&W in my personal style (with a pop of red on the lips of course)!
Happy Friday girls! Friday means it’s time for me to answer some FAQs that you all have been asking about lately! Are you all enjoying this Q&A series? If so (or if not), let me know so we can all stay on the same page — I want to provide you all with content that you actually enjoy reading and find beneficial or inspiring!
This week I’ve been thinking – a lot. I’m not really sure what’s sparked all of this (deep) thought all of a sudden, but it’s inspired me to share some of my personal reminders with you guys. Some of these things are what I’ve been reminding myself of for awhile now, so I hope that you find them helpful and inspiring in some way.
Being 20-something can sometimes be hard because a lot of us are in transitional stages of life. Starting college, dating, applying for internships, graduating from college, moving away from home, getting that big girl job, getting married, starting a family … a lot of life’s events happen during your 20’s (for a lot of us). And if all of that isn’t already overwhelming enough, we also have a million other distractions in this lovely technological world that we now live in. It’s easy to get distracted from the things that matter most in your life (especially when this busy lifestyle we all live starts to take over), so hopefully, these little reminders will help you as much as they’ve been helping me recently.
Happy Friday babes! Today I’m answering 3 popular questions all about organization, my favorite curling wands, and the type of camera I use for all of my pictures! I really love these FAQ Friday’s because I love hearing from you all and getting to answer some of your most asked questions!
Being a warm weather, bikini-loving, summer kind of girl, you could say that I’m a little sad to see the season start coming to an end … especially since this has been one of the most fun summers that TJ and I have ever had together! You may remember this post from a few months ago where we announced a big purchase we made together – a boat! And boy have we gotten our money’s worth so far! We had always wanted one of our own, but it had never seemed like the right timing. Actually, our purchase was (kind of) spur of the moment when we finally decided to just go for it – and it was one of the best decisions we’ve made this year! If you follow along with me on Instagram Stories and Snapchat, then you have probably noticed that TJ and I have been at Norris Lake almost every weekend the past few months. Needless to say, spending time with our friends and family on the boat has been a blast this summer, and I’ll forever cherish the memories we’ve made.
Even though I’m sad to see summer go, I am looking forward to football season – it’s like stepping into another world when it becomes football time in Tennessee. If you’re a Knoxville native, you know exactly what I mean! With that said, I am so thrilled to announce that I am partnering with my big orange alma mater and Vol Gear throughout the fall to bring all of my LNL readers lots of game day outfit inspiration, tailgating ideas, tips on how to use your Vol Gear year-round, etc etc etc. I hope that you’ll follow along with me over the next few months as I show you all around my ole stomping grounds that are a big part of who I am today, while I share some really great tips and tricks along the way!
We made it through another week you guys! I think we deserve a cheers and a drink to that … 😉
It was a super busy one for me, but it made it all go by really fast! I was planning out the rest of my content calendar for August today, and I’m so excited to tell y’all that I have some really cool and exciting posts in store for the rest of the month. I hope you all will like them all as much as I do!
Yesterday, on IG stories, I asked you guys to go ahead and send in your questions for FAQ Friday, and I got such a large response (which I’m so happy about). I’m glad you all seem to really like this series and enjoy getting some questions answered.
The response was so large that I’ll have to save a few of the questions you all sent in for next week’s FAQ Friday post, so if your question isn’t answered today, be sure to check back again next week!
Happy Friday you guys! This week has been one of the busiest weeks I’ve had in awhile, so I’m pretty stoked to see the weekend. The weather here in Knoxville is supposed to be so hot and sunny all weekend, so I see some time on Norris Lake in our future!
I’m so happy to hear that you all loved the makeup tutorial that I posted in yesterday’s blog post – I was honestly nervous about what y’all would think about it, so to hear some positive feedback made me so excited! Today, of course, I’m continuing my FAQ Friday series and answering some more of the popular questions that I get asked all the time .. enjoy!
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. -Jude 1:3
I’ll be completely honest with you all … the past couple weeks or so has been kinda rough for me in this whole blogging world. Putting out fires on top of fires, going back and forth (x60) with brands to nail down serious details for partnerships, trying with all my might to get my inbox under 200 emails (and then by the end of the day, I’m back to the number I started at), working from 8:30am and still having tasks on my to-do list when I ‘stop’ for the day at 10:00pm, balancing my time between the blogging world and my styling jobs, striving to stay strong when I read that mean comment or rude email, and worst of all … playing that evil comparison game. Yeah … it happens to me too. That feeling of ‘I’m not as on top of things as that girl’ or ‘How is her following growing SO much faster than mine?!’ or ‘Dang, I wish I could buy all of those items that that one blogger bought from the #NSale’ or ‘How did she get to work with a brand like that?’ or ‘Geez, am I ever going to get reposted on @liketoknow.it’s Instagram page?’ … but most of all, I’ve just been having a constant feeling of never. being. enough. And truthfully, it’s my own fault that I have felt this way …
I’m headed out of town today with my sweet sista, so follow along with us on our roadtrip! This time, it’s for work but a different kind of work than what you’re used to seeing me talk about. We’re taking it back to our ole stomping grounds and coaching some cheerleading .. where’s all my cheer ladies out there?! If you’re into that kind of stuff, be sure to follow along with me on my Snapchat (@peyton.baxter) and IG Stories. I’m excited to flash back to the past and come out of retirement for a couple of days!
I’ve been getting a lot more questions since I started this FAQ Friday series, which makes me SO excited because I love helping you all and getting to hear more of what YOU want to know about me, fashion, glam, LNL, etc. Let’s jump right in to today’s top questions!
