MOST RECENT

The ugly migraine monster has been rearing it’s head of late. Usually some prompt medication will ease the worst of it, not lately. So in an effort to remove some of the likely triggers, it’s tea, not coffee. Book time not screen time. And if the sun ever comes out I’m sure that’ll help too!
.
So I’m taking the chance to refresh the #gardentovase course that is the brainchild of @claremonicaday. This was the spark that set me on my love of growing beautiful blooms, and I can not recommend it enough. Full of gorgeous images and useful knowledge, it takes you through the steps to create your own garden oasis.

I can’t believe this was a year ago!! It’s been a crazy year working full time at MDA. Someone actually asked me yesterday if I miss Merced...I don’t miss the system, but damn do I miss the people!!! From Riggs, to Fire, PD, and Mercy! #whereistarted

So happy to be back! #gohawks #whereistarted #myroots

Same person 🌷

There was a time when I never wanted to see old pics of me again (and sometimes that’s still the case) but when I need a boost to keep going and to remind myself how far I’ve come I need to see where I started. Still got a long way to go until I’ve lost all the weight and toned up but I know it will be worth it in the end #iamanneka #lifeofanneka #thisqueenwillreign #igdaily #whereistarted #weightlossblog #weightlossjourney #icandothis

Hey guys!
It’s me! Just checkin in lol
For those of you who don’t know me .. I’m Amanda , your stylist! 💁🏼‍♀️ .
.
I get asked all the time how did I get into hair. So I thought I would share a little piece of my story.
.
I was working in the beauty Industry for years. Hair and all things beauty related have always been my passion but I never really knew if it’s what i wanted as a career! I won a trip to Rome, Italy in 2015 for the Artego Global Hair Show. While I was there I got to be a part of an international photo shoot which was LIFE CHANGING. It was a 14+ hour day, choosing our model, planning the hair ( color and style ) , makeup, outfit and shoot time. This day was truly the turning point for me. Being in a room full of many many hairstylist from around the world as everyone worked their magic ( including myself, even tho I wasn’t a stylist at the time I knew I had the skill and ability to do something amazing) changed my life. I knew at that point this wasn’t just a passion of mine that I had natural talent at.. But was something I wanted to make a lifetime career out of. I came home from that trip and immediately applied for hair school and started 6 months later. . .
.
Fast forward a few years later.. here I am today! Working my magic on your hair and loving every minute of it. Not very often do people get to say they do what they love. I am one who can say I truly LOVE what I do and most days doesn’t even feel like work 💕 I am forever grateful for that trip.

The humble beginnings. My childhood and parents’ hard work made me who I am today. I knew at an early age what I wanted to do. Imagine, create and inspire. .

When my mind overfills, with unnecessary pressure, unwelcoming forces from the outside world, i often get a feeling of just wanting to escape, so I set myself free by simply running away... But over the years I have come to learn these cycles, and now know what it is my soul & purpose seek best for me... Listening closely to these callings, I align myself with nothing but nature, calm & beautiful surroundings. All of which bring me back into a place of peace. Escapism doesn't have to result in sex, drugs or alcohol ... I am living proof of this... Thank you universe, Today's Road Trip has been amazing... #ThatWasNotMyEnergy #ThankYou #LessonLearnt #Happy #Free #Learning #Listening #RoadTrip #Adventure #Escapism #Freedom #FreeSoul #QueensWay #WhereIStarted #WontBeWhereIEnd #ToBeContinued

Where I started! This was my first abstract painting in June 2017. And the third photo is of the tiny space I started painting in. Since following my inner voice 🎤 and continuing to paint 🎨, life just continues to get sweeter everyday. Looking back at these photos, it feels like a lifetime ago. So much has happened in this short time! 🙌🏽😍🌟

I thought I would occasionally share some pieces of when I first realized I was an artist. This is the first sketch I ever did that I thought maybe I was an artist. I made it in 2006 from an ad in a magazine. I still love pencil work and I think it gave me a good foundation for the line work I like to do in my watercolor pieces now. And now I am off to Seattle for a mini vacation with my hubby sans kids. I’m so happy to have a break from unpacking the new house!
