I always thought I reached my maximum awkward potential when talking to people face to face. I never realized, until trying to think of a title for my first post, that I am more virtually awkward than I am in person. Introducing myself and explaining my “why” is exponentially more difficult than I thought. So here it goes!
My name is Amanda. I am 29, a wife, stay at home mom of two little boys, ages 6 and 3, and a beauty enthusiast! I love that I have had the opportunity to be home with my children but I have gotten to the point in my life where I realized that I’ve lost myself a bit. I want to get ME back, ya know?
I decided to use blogging as an outlet to talk about life in general, being a parent, wife, and sharing my knowledge about everything and anything beauty related. I am on a first name basis with my local Sephora and while my husband isn’t tickled every time I come home with that black and white striped bag, he is incredibly supportive and encouraging. He even pretends to listen when I am rambling about my new favorite product.
Moral of this introductory story is: I love my family, I love makeup, and I want to write about those things for anyone who wants to read it. This is my new escape to be 100% me all the time!
