Bio:

Amanda is a 20-something stay-at-home-mom to 2 canine children (Bella and Bentley) and 1 human child (Madison) who arrived punctually on her due date: February 9, 2015. Amanda is a Tennesseean from birth and became a transplant Memphian in 2010 when she and her husband (Tyler) moved from East Tennessee for continued education. After living in downtown and midtown, the Parks family now calls East Memphis home. Amanda could easily eat Mexican food every day-- best case scenario also includes a sunny day, a patio, and a margarita. She enjoys reading suspense novels and any book about a dog, but topping the list is shopping-- Amanda is constantly on the hunt for bargains and always feels her best in pink lipstick and killer shoes.

Closely following is shopping for the perfect pair of jeans that hug your butt nicely and don't give you a muffin top or camel toe... But, I digress. Shopping for swimsuits can be downright depressing-- You stare into the mirror under […]
Snapchat :: More Than Filters for Toddlers
Casual. Random. Spontaneous. Real. Unedited. Raw. Authentic. That's the thing about Snapchat. When I asked a new group of friends if anyone used it, most said they thought it was just for exchanging nude photos. While I acknowledge that was a big part of the appeal when Snapchat was first released, now it's evolved into […]
