Hello there sweet friend!

Are you looking for content about productivity, health, setting goals, and just navigating this thing called life? Are you looking for a community of strong and sweet ladies who are total bosses? If so, you're in the right place. Welcome!

My name is Amanda Alvarado and this blog launched in 2015 as a way for me to share my favorite things and everyday life, while being a place where women of all ages can come to for a laugh, encouragement, advice, or a new recipe.

When I couldn't find a summer job before my junior year of college, I got really discouraged. In the moment, I didn't understand what God was doing in my life, but I decided to put my time and effort into something I had been dreaming of for a while. It was during that time that this blog was born! Since then, this space has been one of my biggest passions and I can't imagine my life without it. 

My goal is to be authentic and create a community here on my little corner of the internet. I hope to share not only my favorite makeup or my morning routine, but also some insight on my life - the good times where I feel on top of the world and the bad times where I feel completely hopeless. We've all been there, right? 

I'm a 24-year-old from Atlanta, Georgia. I am a daughter of Christ, digital producer, blogger, podcasterAlpha Omicron Pi sister, coffee-enthusiast, and best friend. I have been blessed with my incredible family, friends and sweet boyfriend, David. I have a dog named Leia that David and I adopted from an animal shelter. 

I work in broadcast media full-time, but I also freelance and help others with all things social media, digital, and podcast production. Need some help in those areas? Contact me!

I own one of Nick Jonas's "Vote For Nick" guitar picks and even got to try Villa One tequila before it hit stores. As a BIG fan, this is very important to me. Justin Bieber also follows me on Twitter. Don't ask why or how because honestly, I don't know. Another fun fact: I really want to live in New York City for a few years.

Some of my favorite things in life are hanging out with my family and friends, baking my famous chocolate chip cookies, taking pictures, catching up on the news, vlogging, listening to a podcast, and writing. I enjoy puppies, a little bit of whiskey, Gossip Girl, great bargains, traveling, laughter, peonies, glitter, and all things girly.

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to getting to know you. Be sure to join my little internet family by subscribing to my e-mail list where you can also get a free guide on mapping out your morning routine. I think that the way you start your day is so important.

Welcome to this sweet community! Put on your yoga pants, throw your hair up, and make yourself at home.
