I’m doing something a little different and out of character today. But when your sweet friend Emily asks you to join her in a reintro post, you don’t say no. 🙂
Today I’m sharing a little re-introduction of myself. There isn’t much to say, frankly. I’m a Kentuckian. I’m a Technical Writer by day, bourbon drinker by night. I hoard makeup, shoes, and throw pillows. I don’t deal well with people who put others down or think their comfort and well-being is more important than the comfort and well-being of others. I have lots of opinions (which I sometimes share) but mainly want to discuss makeup and wine. I’m a lover of brunch, champs, and bold lipstick.
I love blogging and am currently working on two projects: one that’s launching next week and one that will hopefully launch next month. I’m starting to find a bit of bravery and hope this will always serve as a safe space for others.
A little more about me:
Where was the last place you traveled? Oh goodness… Hilton Head last summer? We haven’t had much time for travel lately. We’re going to Nashville in July to see Guns N Roses, maybe Highlands this month, and Hilton Head at the end of July. I’d love to find more time to travel, but with my job, it’s difficult!
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are three materialistic things you’d want with you? Moisturizer with SPF, sunglasses, and a large collection of novels (on a Kindle if I knew I’d have a power source!).
When was the last time you tried something new, and what was it? I tried Pilates over the weekend… after months of cardio and weight training, I thought I’d do an easy Saturday morning workout. Three days later and I’m still feeling it!
If you knew you could not fail, what is the one thing you would do tomorrow? Web design, coding, and building websites. I’d love to start my own business but need lots practice!
What is your earliest memory? I remember my sister coming home from the hospital (I wasn’t yet 3), and my mom slipping in my grandparents’ ice-covered driveway when she was pregnant with her! We were just discussing that over the weekend…
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Pizza or avocado toast.
Do you like your first name? Why? If not, what would you change it to? Actually… my first name is Amanda, but I’ve always gone by Lindsay (my middle name). Both are family names, so no changes here!
If you could give yourself one gift, what would it be? Bravery. I am not a risk-taker. I admire women (and men!) who start their own businesses and put themselves out there. I’m a control-freak and need a plan and a recurring paycheck… it’s like a security blanket. I wish I could just take a leap!
Would you rather be the person asking questions in a conversation or the ones answering them? Asking. I’m always interested in others, which is probably why I love reading blogs!
If you had to live in a place where only one season existed year-round, what would that season be? Fall. I love the smells, the colors, the food, and the bourbon! 😉
If money was no object, what would you do all day? Blog, web design, and consulting. I love meeting and working with women. And when I’m having a rough day at work, I often consider going to work at Ulta or Sephora. How fun to be surrounded by that makeup all day! And think of the discounts…
