That’s me, Amanda, on the right, with my best friend Natalia this past New Year’s Eve (2014). I just got a new phone so this is my most current photo 🙂

Hi! I’m Amanda. Welcome to my blog. This blog is a an updated version of my old makeup and beauty blog, Hush Beauty/Sugarglow. I took a long break and came back to a non-existant database and lost content, so I decided to start over fresh and incorporate more elements of the things I love into my makeup-obsessed home on the web like fashion, DIY and more.

This is basically an Amanda-themed blog — everything I love (mostly makeup and beauty), photos, outfits, favorite blogs, etc. I am also going to review all of the monthly (and bi-monthly) subscription boxes I receive … I started out subscribing to these beauty/fashion/lifestyle/DIY boxes a few years ago and it has branched out into somewhat of a sick obsession. What better way to document that than on my own blog, right? -_-

I am a college graduate with a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Journalism. I was on track to receive my second B.A. in Journalism but life (and a real job) got in the way, so I actually fell just one class short of receiving my second B.A. What I’m trying to say is: I am still very much well-trained in the field of journalism. And I even have the (non-physical) battle wounds to prove it.

I am a writer, first and foremost, and have worked and interned at a few newspapers and other publications. Right now, I am sort of at a crossroads in my professional life. Or at least I feel like I am. I am attending school this spring to get my certificate in Paralegal Studies, as well as a certificate in Public Relations. I put a real career job and graduate school on hold over the last year so that I could work my bar/party planning job and make actual money (fairly good money), leaving myself with little time for anything else. I think that my next step in pursuing these certificates will open more doors for me in the career field(s) I wish to enter, with awesome internship and job opportunities.

I plan on getting my Master’s after I finally fall into a real career (and have ample money to pay for it). I have so many interests – I change my mind every single day on what I truly “want to be when I grow up” — and that’s probably why I have studied a bunch of different subjects.

This blog will definitely reflect most of my more material interests (as stated above), and basically will contain anything that I think is worthy of blogging about. I’m actually glad that my database got accidentally deleted — it gives me a chance for a real, fresh start … and this time I will make sure to backup all of my content properly!

Thank you so much for visiting, and please excuse the lack of content while I work on getting everything up and running once again.

NOTE: This welcome post is basically the same as the static “About” page that appears on the main navigation menu. I guess I could have made the About page a post … but I think it’s easier this way? I’m not sure. All I wanted to accomplish was to welcome everyone to my blog and provide some details about me and my life and why I decided to start my own blog 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting!
