A little about me & the blog:

Hello lovely! I’m Amanda; a fashion blogger & the owner of Piper & Hazel. My current projects with P&H include my handmade jewelry collection- but I have so much more in the works! I'm also a writer and this portion of my life is to discuss and showcase curated collections of the best of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle tailored to an on the go, minimalistic, & authentic gal- which goes along with P&H core values and morals.
I’ve always loved writing ever since I was able to pick up a pen and I am so grateful that I am able to combine it with my passion of style, beauty & home decor to create genuine content that helps, informs and inspires others.

Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.Oprah Winfrey
The spark that started my career in fashion:

I had an interest in fashion at a very young age. I loved everything that had to do with being glamorous and wearing clothing that made you feel amazing. I believe that my mother being involved in the fashion/beauty industry had something to do with my interest in the field. I remember trying on her big fur coats and running around in her apartment wearing her kitten heels (that we're much too big for me) with her leather handbags hooked on my arm- pretending to be roaming the streets of New York on a mission for a great fashion magazine article. I was utterly inspired by the fashion world and it was a dream to become a part of it.
Current whereabouts:
I was never aware of just how big the fashion industry is. When looking for which colleges to attend in my junior year of high school and trying to figure out what major would best fit me, it occurred to me that I could actually make a career out of fashion. After much evaluation, I decided that attending college in Boston for a fashion merchandising degree was the best option. The thought of it gave me butterflies! I couldn't have picked a better major for myself. I absolutely love what I am learning and living in the city gives me a thrill that is completely unexplainable. Currently, I'm a receptionist at a high end spa.
