// a little more about me //
Welcome to beyond BLK+WHT — I’m so grateful that you stopped by! I am Lindsay Ann Staniszewski, a current Nashville resident and a Maryland native. As a communications / marketing guru in the hospitality industry by day and vocalist in a musical duo with my sister by night, my life is jam-packed with the things I love — branding, writing, event planning, networking, music, singing, culture, travel, family, friends, and romance — but it hasn’t always been easy nor has it been black and white — far from it! My life has been a journey filled with experiences, challenges and opportunities that landed me where I am today — and I can’t wait to share my “wisdom” and learnings with you! I also want to divulge the simple things that make me happy — from my passion for culture and travel to my love of all things beauty and fashion. I hope in my musings, I can provide a dose of joy and inspiration to you. My promise? To always be authentic and real, to speak from my heart and to share my imperfectly perfect world with you.
Oh, and a few more interesting tidbits… I am an Aries, shoe-obsessed, a former Miss Maryland for the Miss America Organization, one half of the sister country pop duo The Marilynds, a family girl, a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park, a jetsetter, a M•A•C make-up pro, a keynote speaker, a perfectionist (#truth), bicyclist, an advocate for girls and young women, a Starbucks chai tea latte fanatic, a romantic at heart, a former musical theatre leading lady, a pianist, and social media maven — to name a few!
