It's a new day! And I'll begin it by apologizing, for not posting here this past Wednesday. Sorry! I've been working hard to move my blog over to a newly designed platform and I'm pretty excitied about it. I'm calling it "With love, Amanda" and it's going to be bigger,...

As with any great party, part of the fun is the rehash after the debauchery is over. It extends the good times ad infinitum, and I love it! So forthwith, more than a week after the golden statues were handed out, and the red carpet rolled up, here’s a glimpse back at w...

I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. My engagement and wedding ring are basically it. But I have collected a few things over time and along the way. In all of my acquisitions, one thing was always very clear to me. I didn’t like gold jewelry. Really. Up until very recently I...

I love lingerie, more now than ever before actually. I went through a phase these last few years when I thought boy briefs and basic under-things were the way to go. I figured they were sexy and chic in all their understatement. And it was working for a while. But then...

My dad was an economist, and a professor, and… he also sang in the Canadian Opera Company. So, being the daddy’s girl that I am/was, I too have a bit of a wacky duality to my creative life. I’m a writer, sometimes TV correspondent, and, wait for it, a singer! Yes, that...

I try to set a good example for my kids by demonstrating to them my love of reading. We talk about books a lot, my nightstand is piled high with them, and I love to curl up on the couch and enjoy some, all-too-rare family reading time. But at the moment, I am feeling a...

Is there anything better than a perfect-fit, favorite pair of jeans? I think not. Am I prone to superlatives? I think so. Still, I mean it when I say, I LOVE my jeans! I probably own more than 50 pairs, though I can’t say for certain since I haven’t ventured into the r...

I recently made a great discovery, or more accurately, a re-discovery, having first uncovered this wonderful truth when I was a wee babe. Reading books is awesome! If that sounds like something only an idiot would say, well, I say to you, when was the last time you rea...

And so the New Year is upon us! Ring the bells, bang the pots, toast with Champagne, or eggnog, or other specialty cocktail, (or non alcoholic beverage). Welcome the New Year with high hopes, bright smiles, and dreams a-plenty. The turning over of another year, though...

You’ve heard this one before… “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” And for me, it truly is. I love Christmas. I love it as much as my wide-eyed, Santa-fixated, six-year-old self. Maybe more. The tree is up and sparkly, there are some mysterious packages under it...
