Such a loaded question that seems to need a new answer every year or so… I am Amanda and this is my blog. This is the small corner of the internet that I’ve carved out for my quirky take on beauty. Written, from a fashion girl’s perspective, about all the trials, tribulations, and expectations that come with a beauty routine. Especially as women; Trying to have it all: the family, the career, the energy, the balance and most importantly who we are as women.
In short, this is a journey about happiness one beauty routine at a time.
Along with a lot of personal beauty adventures and me trying to figure out what beauty means to me, you will find the site is frequently spiced up with more than that – inspiration from my travels, photo muses, stylish men and women who wear beauty well, lessons learned, and occasional thoughts on music & fashion.
I am a southerner turned New Yorker by way of Alphabet City over 10 years ago. I plan Marc Jacobs retail business by day. Therefore, you will often hear from my MJ girls who contribute to very informal and unscientific polls mainly conducted on g-chat.
A long time ago, my friend confided in me that she had not applied lotion in the seven months following the birth of her daughter. I was horrified. I set out to create a quick, easy site for women to go to for home remedies and news on the latest beauty products. Since then, the site has turned into more of a personal journey with beauty. A more authentic version of home remedies and the latest products.
I love a good book, a big glass of red wine, time to relax by the beach, Mr. Assouline, intelligent conversation, quiet evenings in the bath, and creating wrinkles with laughter. I also love bad movies, DIY teeth whitening tricks, wearing sunscreen on the beach, Mr Assouline, stupid conversation, a crowded bar, and applying anti-wrinkle cream to my crows feet.
