If you read my blog post on 20 random things about me, then you probably know how obsessed I am with true crime documentaries and that kind of stuff. As obsessed as I am, I never in a million years envisioned anything remotely close to that happening to me….but it did.This is my scary stalker, part one as its so long, that actually materialized out of nowhere. Let me start from the beginning, I think you’ll see what I mean once you read the rest.
So about 7 years ago, I was in college at this time and really not loving it so much. I was so bored, so as a result I started making frequent trips to visit a very good friend of mine out of town, who’d just had a baby girl. I LOVE babies, omg I can’t get enough of them, they’re just so ridiculously adorable it’s crazy. Anyway, spending time with my friend and here newborn really lifted my spirits so I came to spend more and more time with them.

As you know, the more time you spend with someone, the more sort of integrated into their life you become. Well, this one random day a male cousin of hers came to visit so we were introduced to each other. First impressions of this dude? Hmmmmn nice guy I guess, very polite and actually quite the gentleman. I mean he wasn’t my ‘type’ romantically speaking, but I remember thinking how refreshing it was to see that chivalry wasn’t dead. He was significantly older and seemed quite God fearing and solid in his faith. One of those guys you won’t see at a club living it up, but will definitely be front row in church on Sunday morning.

Hello lovelies, today is the best of Amanda Millie Week Three!! It’s been a very hectic last week, so I am literally playing catch up with myself at this point. I am probably about 4 days behind on the 30 day blogging challenge, but I’m not going to beat myself too much about it, I’m just going to sit my butt down and get blogging now that I have a minute. 

As for YOU…..Here’s what you’ve missed from Amanda Millie, so far. 

A Message for you! 

Sometimes all we need is for someone to remind us of how much we are valued and loved. We usually give so much of ourselves to their people we completely forget about self love. This post is a gentle message that I believe someone out there needs to read. 

10 Things I wish I could tell my 16 year old self! 

Do you ever looked back on your teenage years and think, ugh!,, I wish I’d known not to do that at the time. Here I shares one things I wish I could tell my 16 year old self if I could. Can someone invent a time machine already???

Restaurant Review: Breakfast at Andina London

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I have to agree as its my favourite meal. I am a sucker for a good porridge and my taste buds were certainly indulged when I ate at Andina London. Check out my review and see how I got on. 

What I wore: Banana Republic VIP Fashion event! 

I had so much fun working at this event, and I absolutely adore the new collection they currently have instore. Check out the post and find out what I wore and also a little bit about the dress for success charity that really does some amazing things to help women down on their luck. 

Well, that’s pretty much it from week three, and as we’re already in week four it’s probably best that I sign off here and get back to my catch up session:-). As always, stay beautiful and love the life you’re living! Xo

So last night I attended a Banana republic VIP fashion event that was both showcasing the new Spring/Summer collection and also raising money for the Dress for Success charity. 
Before I go any further about what I wore, I want to quickly talk about this awesome charity. These guys are quietly doing some amazing work helping women who are down on their luck, dress and look the part for their job interviews and consequently when they get the job. Check out their site if you get a chance, I’ve linked to it above. You can donate clothes, your time or money, it’s such a worthwhile cause. Ok I’ve done my little plug, back to the fashion:-)

Now, obviously I wasn’t there as a VIP guest (I wish)! Hmmmmn I’m kind of selling myself a little short here, I just realised. I mean, why wouldn’t I be there as a VIP guest? I can be vip too, if I want to right? Who gets to decide things anyway! Alas on this occasion I was in work mode, I got lost a little in all that vip talk, let me regroup and carry on, *deep breathe*. Phew, ok so I was on the clock, modelling the spring/summer collection for their VIPs. What usually happens, (to me anyway) on these kind of jobs, is that half the time I don’t like the clothes they make me wear so I literally just pretend that I look like a million bucks, whilst counting down till I can take it off and wear my own stuff;-). Oops, I guess I shouldn’t really say that should I? Maybe I should rephrase that to be a little more ‘PC’……..nah, on second thoughts maybe not. Moving right along…… View Post


I’ve been wanting to have breakfast at Andina London restaurant for a very long time. Ever since I heard about their famous quinoa and amaranth porridge.

So Andina situated at 1 Redchurch street in shoreditch, describes themselves as a modern Picanteria – an all-day pioneering restaurant serving healthy food and drinks inspired by the Peruvian Andes.
They serve food all day from breakfast, lunch and in the evening it turns into THE place to be in shoreditch, with a lot of people stopping off for dinner and cocktails before hitting the trendy nightlife in the area.
I had a solo breakfast here on a a very quiet Monday morning, so I didn’t experience the ‘buzz’ everyone tells me about, which was just fine with me. It’s not a particularly huge space, but it’s very cozy and the staff were super helpful. View Post

10 things I wish could tell my 16 year old self actually came about during a hilarious throwback conversation with a friend of mine at work today. We were pretty much reminiscing about some of the fashion crimes we committed during our teenage years. Does anybody remember that Christina Aguilera song, Dirrty? OMG!! I was so obsessed with her, I literally wanted to be her. Ewwwwwwww! Those super low rise jeans? Cringe!!!!! Anyway, it got me thinking….if I had a time machine and could go back and talk to my 16 year old self, what would I tell her? This is what I came up with…...

1. Act your age.

Please don’t be in a hurry to grow up. Enjoy being young, play more, watch Sabrina the teenage witch, have fun and just be a teenager. Growing up is so overrated, I mean seriously! It comes with responsibilities, bills, bills, more bills, oh and did I mention bills?? You get the picture right? View Post
