My name is Amanda, I’m a newlywed living in the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, born and raised. Out of high school, I spent a few years living in New York City and working as a make-up artist for one of the most prestigious brands in the world. Feeling burnt out from the daily hustle in the city,
I moved back home, met my husband and decided to go back to college for a degree in travel and tourism.
I have 3 major loves (besides my family of course):
Hippie Stuff- Of course this includes anything relating to the 1960’s and 70’s. I love The Beatles, headbands, long flirty skirts, liberal view points, animals. I love just about anything that reminds me of that era, so I have an entire section called “Hippy Stuff” included in my blog. I consider myself a new age hippy. Oh, and I adore Stevie Nicks. You might find something environmentally friendly on my blog, a music video, a poem. Who knows?
Beauty- I’m an ex-make-up artist but still a guru to my friends and family. I started working in the industry at 16 and have been hooked ever since. Although I decided retail was no longer for me, I am still the go-to person that is called on whenever the occasion arises. I will admit, I am a total make-up and skin care product junkie who loves to try out the newest, most funky fresh thing any line has to offer.
Books- Reading can transport you into an entirely different world, which is helpful sometimes in our crazy busy lives. I’m a book addict. It is an addiction I don’t try (and refuse to try) to cure. The amount of books I own is enough to start up a small library and it grows almost every day. It doesn’t help that I read extraordinarily quick and can polish off a book like a glass of cool water. I will read just about any genre, from YA to American History, memoirs, science fiction. You name it, I most likely read it. I have a never-ending “To Read” list you can find on my “Goodreads” page.
