Greetings new friend. Thanks for stopping by. My name is Amanda. I live in Miami, home of sizzle and shine. I love to sparkle, practice Bikram Yoga, collect vintage fashion and home goods, DIY projects (as a solution to my expensive taste), shake what my momma gave me, and puppies. I am currently attempting to enjoy running, vegetables and spicy foods.
I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2006 with a degree in Radio & TV Communication. This degree has taken me to many places and into quite a few hilarious predicaments. I have been a Universal Studios Production Assistant on video shoots large and small, NBC-Orlando Floor Director, Miami radio intern, and a Broadcast Traffic Coordinator for a prominent Fort Lauderdale advertising agency among my more glamorous titles. Most recently I have been recruiting talented scientists and physicians for a prestigious cancer center. This may sound like a nerdy job but it is surprisingly action-packed. I have had the opportunity to meet many brilliant people from all over the world.
I am also an amateur photographer and love to capture everyday moments, anything shiny and honest expressions of those that I love. I have an eye for style and color and am excited to share my discoveries.
I am also currently enrolled in graduate courses at the University of Miami earning credit towards my Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree to be completed in June 2012. http://www.as.miami.edu/mals/ (Woooo Hoooo – I’m almost there!)
I began this blog last Fall as an outlet for creativity that my current job does not allow and to share my thoughts on the tiny but important reasons to be happy. Unfortunately I do not post as often as I prefer to due to my busy work/school schedule but this will be changing soon.
