End of May posts

Hey all! There is A LOT going on right now so I wanted to keep this short and sweet. I am sharing a few of my recent posts for the month of May. I can’t believe it is almost June. Hopefully better things are in store.

XOXO,

Slowing down

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! I know the quarantine has been a tough time for all of us but I also hope that it has taught us all some lessons. I know it definitely has for me and one of the lessons I’ve learned is: to slow down. I think we all can relate to being go, go, go most of the time and it causes us a lot of stress and can lead to us not being able to live in the moment. Social media can definitely make it harder on us and can also make us compare ourselves to others in many ways. I will admit that I compare myself to others daily, especially on social media. The important thing to remember is: no one is posting their failures for everyone to see!

We all grow and accomplish things at different rates and that’s okay! Olivia Rink (one of my favorite bloggers) just wrote on one of her Instagram posts: “The opposite of busy is not lazy”, and that really stuck with me. I believe that sometimes we all have a tendency to think if I am not currently being productive or working on something 24/7 that it translates to being lazy. The truth is there is nothing wrong with that! You are allowed to be unproductive and that still doesn’t make you lazy! You are allowed to take time off from working, you are allowed to take time to yourself, you are allowed to take social media breaks. We are all human and we are not meant to be working every second of every day. I am sure this virus has shown us some of that and as heartbreaking as this has all been I hope it teaches us to stop and appreciate our lives a bit more. We should be happy if we take things slower or don’t work at the same rate as others. It’s okay and it’s healthy! Sometimes you need to just sit on your couch in your pajamas and netflix and chill for the day. That doesn’t make you lazy, it makes you real! Thank you all for reading!!!

XOXO,

Amanda

End of April posts

Sorry for the delay in blog posts guys! I’ve definitely been posting a lot more on instagram and the liketoknow.it app instead of my blog. I have been doing a lot of simple posts lately where I round up some of my latest instagram posts/looks and share them with you all on here with shoppable links. I don’t want to forget where I started though and that is my blog! Sometimes it is nice to come back to my own little corner of the internet and not only share my looks with you but also my thoughts and feelings. I have a lot of great posts coming up that are more personal and hopefully some good reads so I’m super excited to share that with you all. Thank you all so much for the continuous support. I love that so many of you reach out to me or even support me by purchasing something from my links. It truly means the world to me! Stay safe and let’s get through this together!!!

XOXO,

Amanda

This is my new favorite highlighter and I am obsessed with Physician’s formula products. You can read a previous post where I talk about the bronzer here.

Happy Saturday! I just wanted to round up a few of my latest Instagram posts in case you missed them. I hope you all are having an excellent weekend and staying safe. Don’t forget to practice social distancing!

The coziest robe

(Robe)

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your time home during this difficult time. I just wanted to share the new bathrobe that I am completely obsessed with. It is the absolute softest robe I have ever owned and it is under $25! It comes in a variety of colors as well and I literally think I might order another one. It is perfect for lounging around the house and it would also make a great gift. I will admit I haven’t ordered a ton from Amazon lately but I received this robe within three days of ordering it and I was so happy with how fast it shipped. Thank you Amazon prime! Ps make sure to follow me on Liketoknowit (it’s a free app from the app store) to instantly shop all of my looks. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

XOXO,

Leggings but make it fashion

(Sweatshirt) (Leggings) (Shoes)

Hi guys! I hope you are all having a great day. I wanted to share this super fun and comfy look that is perfect for working from home. As you can probably tell from several of my posts, I have been all about this tie dye trend. This look reminds me that there are brighter days ahead and that is one of the reasons why I love it because that is probably something we all need to remember. I am sure several of you are going a bit stir crazy from being home all day so I wanted to share one of the challenges I am currently participating in. It is called the #stayhomegetdressedchallenge. I first heard about it from @jesskeys_. It has a checklist of so many fun and different looks that you can style while staying at home! This is my first look from the challenge: leggings but make it fashion! Anyone who participates in the challenge during the month of April should use the hashtag #stayhomegetdressed and tag @jesskeys_ and she will donate 5 cents for every post to a local Chicagoland hospital. Super amazing! Let me know if you plan on participating because I’d love to share your looks as well!

XOXO,

Amanda

IG roundup 4/2/20-4/4/20

(Vitamins) (Water bottle) (Top) (Leggings)

(Pajamas)

Hey guys! It has been such a weird time lately for all of us and it has definitely put me in a funk, content-wise. These last few weeks have probably been my least productive as far as creating content goes. I just haven’t had the heart to get up and shoot new and fun looks when everything else going on around us is so depressing. Lately, I’ve been sharing a lot of older looks with funny captions so I hope you’ve enjoyed those and that they’ve made you smile during these tough times. These looks are from some of the shoots I did last week and posted on Instagram. I wanted to share them here just in case you missed them. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and healthy. We will all get through this!

XOXO,

Amanda

Living colorfully

(Shirt) (Leggings) (Shoes)

Hi guys! I hope you all are doing well and staying safe. I know that everything going on right now is super scary but the great thing about social media is that it keeps us all connected even during times of crisis. Everything is far from normal right now and sometimes it can be hard to feel comfortable at a time like this but I’ve found comfort in the simplest things. For example, I did my hair for the first time in almost two weeks.

I know it’s super silly but focusing on something so small that was a part of my normal routine gave me some comfort as well as hope that things would be back to normal soon. I hope you all stay safe and sane during this time. P.S. I would like to shout out all of those unsung heroes who are helping out at a time like this: the nurses/doctors, truck drivers, grocery store workers, cleaning crews, distribution center employees, etc. Thank you so much for being committed to helping others in such an uncertain time.

XOXO,

Amanda

Cat person

(Sweatshirt) (Leggings)

Hey guys! I hope everyone is enjoying their time inside. I have been somewhat productive but I have also taken my fair share of naps as well. I’m definitely getting a bit stir crazy but I truly believe if we all do our part in staying inside that we will be back to normal in no time. This comfy outfit is perfect for your day indoors. These leggings are super comfortable (and affordable) and come in several colors. The sweatshirt is on clearance right now and really comfy as well! I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself a cat person (although between my roommate and I we have 3!) because I grew up with dogs but having my own cat has helped changed my mind slightly. I would say I am a lover of all animals and I absolutely love having a pet, regardless if it is a cat or a dog.

I was fortunate enough to head home to spend these past few days with my family and I am so thankful for that. I can’t believe March is almost over. It has definitely been a challenging month but I still have high hopes for the rest of the year! I hope everyone is staying safe and staying sane.

XOXO,

Amanda
