Hi, I’m Lindsay!

Thank you for checking out my blog! For those who don’t know me, I was born and raised in Indianapolis, which is also my current home! I work in retail management and have a college background in human development and family studies. Besides fashion and fitness, I love cities and warm climates and I travel as much as I can! 

Sunshine + Stair Climbs is all about being the sunshine you wish to see in the world. This lifestyle blog will focus mainly on my three favorite things: Fashion, Fitness, and Travel. You can expect girly, colorful, preppy fashion; fitness motivation; healthy eating tips; and travel guides for cities across the US. 


Let me say I am by no means an expert on exercise and nutrition. I did not study these subjects in depth in college and I am not a certified fitness instructor (yet). Any recommendations are from personal experience or things I’ve learned from pros! 

Fitness is key to a happy, healthy life! Elle Woods said it best – “Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy.” I hope to help others find that same happiness and feel empowered to achieve their goals! I’ve been asked in the past, “Why do you workout so much? Do you hate your body?” The answer was (and still is) absolutely not! I workout because I love my body! Don’t get me wrong – I have insecurities just like anyone else! But I love taking care of myself. Working out is great stress relief and gives me more energy. It’s also my “me” time. It makes feel restored and ready to take on whatever the day brings my way.

“Sunshine” represents all things tropical and summery, as well as my passion for spreading joy to others!

“Stair Climbs” refers to one of my favorite exercises. I have competed (and placed) in 2 tower runs (yes, that involves running up a tower!) and I have to say, as crazy as it sounds, I think it’s really fun! Maybe it’s my love of skyscrapers that drew me to it, but one thing that makes it so rewarding is the combination of cardio & strength training it provides! 

I hope you enjoy exploring my blog and joining me on my adventures! For more sunshine, check out @sunshineandstairclimbs on Instagram.
