My whirlwind jet setting days are over… for a while anyways.
As for my fashion experience in NY, it was fantastic. I attended the Independent Fashion Blogger Conference when I first got in, and I really learned a lot of valuable information about this very new and mysterious blogging world. Luckily I kept my eyes open, as I was running on only 3 hours of “airplane sleep”.
As for the rest of my trip I mainly just wandered around the city with my camera exploring. I was a little disappointed at the lacking amount of photos I had taken, when I got home to look them over. As a blogger something I need to work on is figuring out the balance between experiencing things myself, and capturing the experience for you crazies! 😉 In other words, I need to take MORE PHOTOS.
Oh one last thing to share about NY. My experience at Lincoln Center for Fashion Week. DUH. I walked here a few times since it was only a few blocks from my hotel. It was a really weird/special experience walking up to Lincoln Center for the first time. I didn’t know what to expect. I definitely did not expect a hoard of fashion bloggers and paparazzi to start following me around snapping pictures. Of course I secretly couldn’t have been more excited…but I stayed cool. lol I also took my fair share of photos. I really tried to capture the feeling of the whole scene with candid photos. I hope you enjoyed them.
Okay okay, so now what is to come on One of Each Blog you ask? Well let me break it down… 😉
Coming Soon:
-Wisconsin Pictures.
-Still need to post my 1 year anniversary pics from Seattle.
-How I style my hair tutorial
-More DIY projects
As you can see many exciting things in the works. As for now, Happy Monday you fabulous fools. Love you guys <3

Hello my lovelys! So yesterday was my first day in NYC. I flew over on a red eye, and managed to get maybe 3hrs of sleep?! Uffda!
When I got here, I just threw something on 😉 and made my way over to the Independent Fashion Blogger conference at Milk Studios. Which was pretty amazing. I got to meet a lot of other fashion bloggers and network. Something that I must MUST get better at. One thing that made it a little easier were my business cards. I’ll have to post a pic, but they were going out like hot cakes. Once someone saw them, everyone around wanted one. I mean they are pretty cool of course, because my wonderful husband made them.
Any who, after the IFBcon, I decided it was a good idea to walk back to my hotel, in the rain, in my JC Detention wedged boots, for about 40 mins. Why would I do such a think you ask? Well…I was too chicken to stand out in the street flailing my arms about to call for a cab. Yup, I’m not from around here.
I actually like walking around though, just not in heals. I plan on just wondering about today taking photos, and luckily the sun just came out. Then tonight is FNO so I need to start mapping out where I’ll be heading.
As for now I’m off. Wish me luck in the big city! <3

NYFW Here we come

What I'm Packing

What I'm Packing

Well I just arrived back from Wisconsin (pictures to come) and as fast as I can unpack, I must re-pack for New York. These are just a few of the items that I’m pretty excited about. I want to live in these new H&M leather athletic shorts, and anything that is a shade of jade.

Well, I must be off, for my “to-do” list is growing and growing. But have no fear, for I will be blogging live from NYFW in a matter of hours. lol

MY NEW BOOTS ARE HERE!!! I bought these boots specifically for NYFW, but of course I had to try them out. Luckily I did, because there is something sharp around the top of the boots, on the inside, that was rubbing my skin off all day. OUCHIIIEEE!
That is all.
Love you fools!! <333 Amanda

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
