It’s almost Christmas y’all and I am so excited.🎄Christmas marks the end of a year and what a year it has been. First my family is moving across the country. Yup we’re heading east, goodbye Cali! Its been a long time coming, but we’re getting ready. So if you happen to see an over loaded UHall and a minivan with way to many kids in it say hi; we’re going to need witnesses because my mom is probably going to be on the verge of leaving us in the Arizona dessert.
But one of the best parts about 2017 was Chris Young being inducted into the Opry. I was so excited to hear the news! So I thought why not look back at where it all started for him. Yes you may recall the show Nashville Star. I do and I remember voting for him.
Lets give him a huge round of applause for not only winning Nashville Star but also now becoming the newest member of The Grand Ole Opry!!
I mean without Chris I wouldn’t have ever started this site!! So in the words of Brad Paisley “Welcome To The Zoo!”
Y’all 2017 is almost over and it’s been crazy! Trump is still president, which has ticked off a ton of people, way too funny. We’ve endured some major heartbreak with Hurricanes, Mass shootings by cowards, terrorist attacks and much more.
In many ways this year has taught us that we need to love on our family and friends a lot more and that we need to run after our dreams!!
What is one way we can get through it all? Well, in my opinion that’s with music. And for me that’s specifically country music. I have to be honest I almost gave up on my dream of what I want The Typzee Gypzee to be. I have so many plans and dreams. But that stupid thought that comes in and tells you to forget about it, came in and set up a freaking camp site. I was almost done with it all. But then the heartbreaking attack that in Las Vegas happened and it hit me hard. We only get one life and we can waste it. So in memory of those that lost their lives while having a good time, I’m going to make something out of The Typzee Gypzee! I’m not going to let the unknown hold me back. And I’m going to start by blogging the crap out of this thing. And best of all I’m moving to Nashville!! Yup I said it, I’M MOVING TO NASHVILLE!! I’ve been wanting to do this for such a long time so why not. And the best part, my family is also coming. I’m not doing this one alone. All I know is it’s going to be a party! So stay tuned!!
What are you waiting for go follow your dreams, I mean what do you have to lose???
And speaking of someone that didn’t give up on their dreams, Mr. Chase Rice has a new album out after a long three years! Enjoy his new song ‘One Love, One Kiss, One Drink, One Song’ it’s also one of my favorites from his new album ‘Lambs and Lions’!!
Most of the time Monday’s suck but I have a cure! During your lunch break sit back and watch a little Bob Ross!!
P.S. You’re welcome!!
We all hit that point in our lives financially where we start thinking up ways to make money. I mean if I was in better shape more doors would open 😯. But luckily my moral code is a little higher and I love my mama way to much to shame her, plus I live to far from Vegas!! So what is a girl to do when she’s BROKE!
Okay so here’s where I’m at. I could go down the responsible route and you know get a job. I’ve had a few jobs, everything from professional babysitting, retail (which sucks) and I even worked at a church (I may or may not have been fired from that one). But I don’t want to do this for the rest of my life. I don’t think anyone wants to go through life working part-time!! Let’s be honest we all want to be millionaires with a private island and a Bugatti!!! But how do we get there and still have some dignity at the end of the day?
Well here’s the plan. Now I always could go all Princess Kate. Becoming a princess seems to be out of the question because Prince Harry and his GF seem pretty happy. The other plan is starting my own business. I’ve wanted to for so long!! So that’s it, I’m starting a business! It’s top secret because honestly it’s going to be AWESOME and I don’t need people creeping my ideas!! But until then I can talk more about my adventures, country music and some yummy food!! Sorry but y’all get to continue to read my thoughts!!!
Watch Miranda Get as raw and real with this version of “Tin Man”~
It’s been two years since I started this blog!! I’m still trying to figure out where the time has gone!!
Lets go back to where it all began.
Chris Young had just released “I’m Comin’ Over” and I was searching the internet for some reviews or something just so I could get a feel for it. Well I found nothing, but some uninformed angry bloggers that probably have like thirty cats. It was all nagitive. And when I went searching for some up and coming artists/bands, well you gussed that wasn’t even possible because apparently no one talks about all of the newbies! So I started racking my mind after I did a ton of complaining. Then that little voice went off in my head and well here I am. I then launched “Southern Princess Problems”. I taught myself how to work WordPress (not an easy task). I also let my inner journalist go nuts and I read about a million articles on how to run a successful blog! Then about a year later I changed the name to, “The Typzee Gypzee”, why well because it’s more my style. Plus my mom had came up with it like three years before for another business I had wanted to do. It has been so much fun. I have gotten to listen to some really amazing music. I have had the privilege of interviewing the next big things that are going to be in Nashville.
Huge shout-out to all my followers and readers!! I also want to thank every single artist/band that has been apart of my interviews and dealt with my crazy!! I wish you all the best!!!
I also want to thank my amazing mama for teaching me everything about writing and for encouraging me to continue!!
And thank you to everyone in Country Music for making the best music there is!!
Okay y’all I’m having a major issue with yoga’s, are they pants or what?!?!? I was raised by a woman who about twenty minutes before my dad gets home fixes her hair and makeup. My mom is the queen of manners and class!
So here are my personal thoughts on yoga’s! Don’t hate me I’m not judging anyone that wears them, I promise!! I can say I’m not a fan. I don’t really understand why anyone would wear them outside of the house/yoga studio. They really don’t flater anyone’s figure and they show off way to much! Yoga’s to me would be like wearing a bikini everywhere. Think about it they really are not pants and I’m not buying that you just came from the gym when you’re shopping at Target. I workout and when I’m done I’m a hot sweaty mess!
So here’s what we all need to do start wearing jeans! Jeans are great and my mama definitely approves of them!
So when it comes right down to it yoga’s are not pants they’re basically a winter bikini!!
Have you ever been in love? It’s probably the best feeling in the entire world! Just think about it; there are songs, movies, TV shows and plays all about being in love. Love is the ultimate feeling that will override all other feelings. You’ve probably heard from parents that the love they have for their children is undescribable! Two people will choose to spend their entire lives together all because they’re in love!
One of my favorite movie scenes is from “It Takes Two”, (yes the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie). Kirstie Alley is explaining what true love feels like; She says “It’s got to be that can’t–eat, can’t–sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff, right?”. That’s literally the only way to explain it!
Well I now know what everyone is trying to explain. No I’m not getting none of that. I’ve fell head over heels for a Range Rover! Yes you read that right, I’m in love with a Range Rover! I completely understand what true love feels like.
Now I made myself a promise way back when I was sixteen. I said I don’t want to own a car unless it’s a Range Rover. Well so far I’ve kept that promise. Don’t judge me!
It’s now my new life goal! Stick around for the ride cause it’s going to be crazy!

I did something no one in the social media world would ever do, I took four months off!!
Yes, I put down the phone, computer, tablet, etc.
Why, well I was at a total road block. I couldn’t write to save my life. If my posts were a food they would’ve been a freaking Fruit Cake and we all know what people do with Fruit Cake!
It was a good four months. I made some major plans for The Typzee Gypzee for this upcoming year. First I’m going to make a huge effort to create a community of Gypzee’s who are as crazy about country music, fashion, college football, fitness, food, and family as I am. I want this to be a fun family! Second my posts are going to have a new vibe! New as in all me and no filter!
So much is in the works for 2017 and I can’t wait to tell y’all about it! Stay Tuned!
Holland aka The Typzee Gypzee
People are always asking why I blog and spend so much time on social media and how it’s my job! Well first I absolutely love the opportunity to get to network with people from all over the country and world!! It opens a whole world of opportunity that I would’ve never had the chance to see if hadn’t decided to blog. Second it’s fun! I’m a bit of a gypsy and I love seeing things and places I’ve never seen before.
Okay so now you’re wondering how you can get paid to post on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest?? Well it’s a lot simpler than you think!! First off get ready to work! It takes lots of effort to grow your site’s and get the traffic you want.
I have always been on social media but this past year I jumped off and made it my main priority. I am now getting between 30,000 to 75,000 impressions on Twitter and I get at least 45 to 100 likes on Instagram!! Now this may not seem like a lot but I haven’t spent a dime on anything! I have only used free sites and I didn’t pay for any advertising!! So all of my views and follows are from my content. I am thinking about paying to make my site dot com just so I own it.
So now you want to get your accounts noticed!! Each social media platform has some kind of unique way of getting things done.
Here’s some things I’ve learned over the past year:
- The more you post, like and follow will get you follows.
- You can’t over post! It’s true I mean why would I follow someone that doesn’t post!
- Make aure you have a really good pictures. Invest in a good camera and do your research.
- If you are using pictures from other sites make sure you get permission or at least credit them. I posted a picture of Jake Owen at CMA Fest and I tagged who o got it from, Jake and the photographer. My post people won’t mind if you share their work as long as you credit them. And if you don’t know who’s picture it is just put from wherever you got it from like Pinterest or something.
- Make it match. An IG account that posts anything looks desperate and crazy. Pick a theme or color scheme.
- Pinterest is pretty easy. Make multiple boards. I like to follow just the boards sometimes.
- Post all the time and anytime.
- Go crazy there is literally no way to “over” post on Pinterest.
- Make sure to follow really good accounts it helps to find good pins.
- Wit is the Twitter game in my opinion! I have literally posted something way stupid and got a ton of hits on it!
- Don’t complain! No one care if you don’t like your mother in law. Now if she said something stupid or funny post it.
- Don’t over tag people. You’ll start looking like a stocker if you’re not careful. Now writing something like “How does @jakeowen keep his teeth so white?? #AskingForAFriend” now this is funny and people will like it and if you’re lucky Jake might reply!! I once said that Chris Soules was more my type than Ben Higgins from The Bachelor, well apparently Ben read that and said that Chris was a great guy and that he hopped I would still enjoy the he show lol. Anything is possible!! PS I still feel kinda bad!!
- The public loves emojis!! It’s true. The last Bachelor with Ben I used emojis to explain The Bachelor.
- Hashtag !!! I honestly don’t understand why people even use Twitter if they’re not going to hashtag! What’s the point!!
- Use a picture and links it makes things interactive!!
So think before you post!! And if you’re interested in launching a social media marketing campaign E-mail me for more information!!
