About Me

Hi!  I am so glad that you found my blog!

My name is Amanda and I am a 16 year old dance student in New York City.  I live in New Jersey with my parents, younger sister, and cat named Pumpkin.  Dancing since I was 3, I developed an eye for beauty, grace, and effortlessness.  When I was 12, I started to really get into makeup and fashion.  After searching up countless reviews online, I would save up money to buy the perfect additions to my collection.  Because of the reviews, I would rarely ever be disappointed by my purchases.  I hope to give you the same trustworthy recommendations that I received.  Recently, I have also made it my mission to strive to live a healthier lifestyle.  It is extremely important to me to be in the best possible shape and fuel my body with as much energy as possible.  With a dream to become a professional dancer, I was ecstatic when I received an acceptance letter to an amazing full time dance school.  The only problem was that I would have to leave my school and my friends behind.   I was worried, and I still am, though I am doing great at my current online school.  Navigating the streets of New York by myself is a lot like navigating through life. It is easy to get lost and you always have to watch out for bad people who may try to hurt you.  But if you take the time to find the truly amazing things (think Broadway, the Statue of Liberty, etc.), you can find enjoyment in your trip. My passion for beauty, fashion, and life combined with my love for writing to create this blog.  As I stumble through life, I hope you will join me to see what we can discover on the way!
