I’m Amanda, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to my beauty, fashion, fitness, and lifestyle blog. Here, I hope to share my knowledge of the science behind skincare and beauty, trends I’m loving, and how I strive to stay healthy and happy with tips and tricks on food and fitness. Of course, you can anticipate a few personal stories about my life here in Knoxville, Tennessee too!
But, before I dive into anything here on the blog, I want to share a little with you all about how I got here, and why I’ve decided to start The Amanda Kennedy Blog. Since I was a junior in college, I’ve become more and more intrigued by the beautiful, creative and hard-working women of the blogging world. I’ve fallen in love with the community that has sprung up around blogging, and grown passionate about sharing my own knowledge and ideas with the rest of the world. Last year, while I was in graduate school, I launched my very first blog- but between the stress of working full time, graduate school, getting engaged and then married, I felt I didn’t truly have the time to pursue writing the way I wanted to.
Fast forward to August of 2018- I’ve defended my Master’s Thesis at The University of Tennessee, and finally graduated! I have some down time before I start my “big girl job” in the science/tech world, and timing just finally seemed perfect to pick up where I left off.
So … after five years, two college degrees, two dogs, and a husband, I am finally ready to venture into the blogging world. After years of studying in the sciences, I cannot wait to share what I have learned with you, and how it can be applied to know more about the skincare and beauty products you use, fitness regimen you follow, and the food you eat! I hope this blog will help all its readers look and feel both beautiful and healthy.
Thanks for taking the time to start this journey with me– one that I am so excited to begin! I hope that you will follow along with me, and that this blog will be a community we can all grow from.
