I’m Amanda and I am the (mostly) Southern Belle out of us Three Basic Bees. I am from Louisville, Kentucky—horse capital of the world! Isn’t it great then that I am extremely allergic to horses?! LoL!
My idea of a perfect day would include brunch, a good book, a hammock in the shade and a warm summer breeze. I have a few obsessions: One Direction, Princess Kate, Weather, Chicago, my 35mm Film Camera, baking and traveling. One can easily become aware of my obsessions just by scrolling through the camera roll on my phone or glancing at my Pinterest page.
I decided to come to Chicago to study Journalism (another love of mine), and I couldn’t be happier! While I do not have a full on southern accent, ride horses (for obvious reasons), or live on a farm, I love everything that has to do with college football and basketball (GO CARDS!), am very picky when it comes to BBQ sauce and always crave a ride my friend’s pick up truck cruising along the Ohio River. My life in Kentucky is anything but boring; as is my life in Chicago! Get ready for some hilarious, informational, and mind-blowingly entertaining blogging coming from yours truly as well as my two other amazing bees!
We are three college Communications majors from very different parts of the country who all managed to end up in the alluring, charming and enchanting city of Chicago. This blog is our way of expanding our communications skills in addition to voicing our opinions. Enjoy!
