About Me

ASOS Bow Cold Shoulder Sleeve Crepe Midi Dress

Hey there, sunshines! I’m Amanda and I’m a glitter-loving, 20-something, life and style blogger / MBA student, currently living in Dallas, Texas. I started Glitter & Spice as a creative outlet shortly after I moved to Dallas in 2013. Through the blog, I strive to connect with the modern, young professional woman by making classic, feminine fashion attainable, recipes simple, and travels super easy to plan. Plus, who doesn’t love a daily dose of glitter (with a heaping side of sass)?

Please feel free to drop me a note or email me at any time if there’s anything you wish I would post or if you have any feedback whatsoever. Thank you for following along and for your continued support. I hope you enjoy reading Glitter & Spice!


I have traveled to over 20 countries on five different continents. Napa Valley, Paris, and Barcelona are some of my favorite destinations.

I’m a huge nerd and love all things Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek (just to name a few!). I even own a lightsaber. And a Chewbacca backpack. Both have yet to make an appearance on the blog.

I studied engineering in undergrad at Cornell University and I personally code the majority of changes to my blog. So if you’re a blogger and trying to teach yourself the basics of coding, please reach out to me so I can help ya!

I went off to college not knowing how to cook. At all. I used a stove for the first time when I was 21 and instantly fell in love with cooking (and baking!).

My karaoke skills are pretty excellent. But actually: I trained as a classical opera singer when I was younger, so I slay those Journey sing-alongs.
