meet Amanda

Hello, ladies and gents!  Here’s a snapshot of the writer behind this blog:

I’m a writer, wino and travel enthusiast. As far back as I can remember I’ve had a passion for writing. That passion led me to Westminster College where I completed a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing. Since then, I’ve written shopping and style articles for CBS online, and offered dating advice at I currently call St. Louis home, where I’m a staff writer for a local magazine. I’m lucky to share that home with an amazing man named Greg, a needy and extremely cuddly cat, and an adorable fur ball we call Bun-Bun.

LIVE THE LUXE LIFE is a blog devoted to just a few of my favorite things. My hope is this will inspire you in many ways and show how to indulge in life’s great pleasures without spending yourself dry. Discover travel tips from dream destination planning to packing guides, advice on how to be savvy socially, and fashion features. So stop in for a visit and stay a while, why don’t you?

    1. Thanks for stopping in, Erika! I’m happy to meet a former Midwesterner who appreciates living the luxe life as much as I do! I hope you stop in again as I’m sure you’ll see a few familiar sites featured on here.
