WHAT MAKES SYDNEY A POSITIVE LIFESTYLE EXPERT?

Hi! My name is Sydney Paige, and I am a fashion/lifestyle blogger based in Baltimore, MD {Coffee-Stained Lace.} While I work with kiddos all day as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have always had a true love for fashion & design, as well as maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle. Since I was a child I've loved being involved in too much and staying busy as a bee. Finding a balance is always difficult, but over the years, I have learned the importance of making time for the things I love and living a life of passion- and channeling my positive energy has truly changed that for me.

NAME 3 POSITIVE THINGS YOU DO EACH DAY AND WHY?

I have recently gotten back into journaling at the end of each day, which always helps me reflect on what was good & what I can do better. Putting together my outfit each morning is also positive for me because it sets the tone for my day and helps me feel confident in myself & my fashion choices! Lastly, I try every day at work to be a positive light at my job for my students. Each child I work with comes from a home, a background that I don't know, so I do my best to surround them with positive energy and goodness each day.
