Do you pin?

Pinterest

Follow Me on Pinterest

Do you Pinterest? If you do, give me a follow… if you don’t you should start! Basically it’s on online pinboard. Instead of having 1000 bookmarks on your computer or saved images all over your desktop, you can compile a virtual pinboard of all of your favorite things. I have a category for pomeranians, home deco, style, jewelry…and a bunch of others. It’s also a great site to search for cute DIY projects and unique recipes.
Go get your pinterest on.

Hello loves…Oh my lawd do I have a lot to talk about. First of all, I am going to New York in T-minus 8 days, for fashion week. EEEK! More importantly I am going to Wisconsin in T-minus 4 days, to see my bestest friends in the whole wide world Courtney and Kelsey. (You too Danno!)

Ok so lets talk NYFW…I am fairly nervous about this whole situation for the following reasons. 1. I am a little crazy, and anxiety ridden. 2. I am going into the big city all by my lonesome. 3. I’m flying a red-eye and I’m worried I won’t get enough beauty rest.(Amanda with no sleep=hot cranky mess) 4. After buying all the shoes and clothes I needed, I couldn’t afford the metallic Alexander Wang clutch I want so desperately.

I also have several reasons why I am excited to go… 1. I am attending the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference on the 7th, The Bloggers night Out party on the 9th, and several other meet ups. 2. I get to take pictures of beautiful people. 3. I get to go to that store Obsucra (from the show Oddities, on the science channel)

Now Wisconsin. I am only excited about this trip and not nervous at all! Well scratch that…the last time I flew, when the plane was descending, something happened in my face. It pretty much felt like my eye and or face was going to burst open and my skin was burning off. SWEET!!! Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.

Things I am super excited about though include. 1.Poking Courtney in the boob.(A long tradition that I’m keeping around) 2. Poking a cows utter. 3. Taking pictures of cows and the farm. 4. Seeing the new house. 5. Using cats and cocking them like rifles. 6. Eating cheese.

Ok well that’s pretty much all my big news. I was going to play Melpo Mene for Tuesday Tuneday…(as seen in above picture noted on my arm. I try to camouflage notes with my tattoo that way) BUT I came to realize I don’t have that on my computer. So I guess you’ll have to scroll down to see what Tuneday has in store for you.

OH one last thing. Don’t forget to scroll down to my GIVEAWAY!!!! Today is the last day to enter, and I will be choosing at random a winner tomorrow morning!

LOVE,
Amanda

Amanda Shoemaker, spotted. A floral field in a concrete jungle. OK OK enough with the corniness.
So I’m finally getting the hang of these personal style posts and will doing this more often. yay. Any-who I am really into mildly transparent tops with bras peeking through lately; I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of that. This way you can say, I’m a little naughty, but not THAT naughty. Also, I will always purchase pants that feel like pajamas. (oh and I got a new tattoodle.)

Treasure Hunt or Bust

plastic toys

skull bracelet

store front

basket of fruit

steer skull

This past weekend my husband and I decided to over head to Old Town Scottsdale to do a little treasure hunt, since we had no luck in Jerome. I normally go into the stores that are full of turquoise and moccasins, but something about the mexican import shop was calling my name…And there it was, the steer skull of my dreams. It still sits in it’s blue plastic bag we brought it home in, until it can be hung. Which probably wont be until we move into our first house. Still very excited about the find, and this shop.
PS Happy FRIDAY! 🙂 What are your weekend plans?

Last month I had the chance to do a photo shoot with the fabulous husband and wife photography duo, We are the Rhoads. I traveled south to Tucson, and meet with the cute couple at the Congress Hotel. It was a fun shoot, really chill and with good folk. I even got to sneak some GEMEG Jewelry pieces in. 😉 We walked around Tucson and wandered into some different stores. My fav pit stop was this diner that served tater-tots. It was great. I can’t say I have ever done a photo shoot where I got to consume a huge chocolate milkshake and tater-tots. Mmm.
Check out more of the Rhoads here, or peek their blog here.
