I met Amanda years ago after I fell in love with her writing style on Not A Model Blog — a lifestyle blog with a literary flare. I’ve followed her travel adventures, tried out beauty products she’s  suggested, and still find myself going back to her blog for a little writing or cooking inspiration. Amanda is a PR maven with a way with words, bringing together great fashion, everyday beauties, recipes and mantras to help you get through your week.

She’s honest, down-to-earth and has a smile filled with sunshine. Not A Model Blog is a breath of fresh air in an Internet chalk full of fashion blogs. Amanda stays true to herself and to her work, that is why she is this week’s Darling.
