Amanda from, My Queen of Hearts Sponsor

I have recently opened up my blog to paid and unpaid sponsorships. For now (the quantity and pricing may change, but I am really excited to start the series!), my paid sponsors will get their own post dedicated to them in addition to plenty of social media love and exposure.

Yes, Wednesdays are typically for YouTube videos, but as I was spending time with my family and friends here in the US, I haven't had time to finish filming one.

So, without further ado, let me introduce you to my first feature: Amanda from!

Amanda has been on a little hiatus from blogging, but is back and ready to dive in full force. I am so glad she has chosen to be featured on my site as I am really happy to connect with her. Amanda is also an expat living in the UK, however she is from Melbourne, Australia and living up in the Toon (Newcastle to the uninitiated!).

I started writing my blog in February 2014. I was working in a job I felt stuck in and started writing my blog as an outlet, then decided it was a great space to document things in my life. Things I've bought, things I like, things that make me happy, new experiences, old memories and more.
I'm from Australia and I moved to the UK to live with my boyfriend last year after being in a long-distance relationship for 4 & a half years! It was such a challenging and exciting time in my life and I wrote about it on my blog back in May last year here  and here.

Also, more recently, after living together for almost a year my boyfriend and I are expecting a baby! It was so exciting to write my pregnancy announcement on my blog here .

At the moment my favourite film is Paddington - I watched it recently with my boyfriend and fell in love with it! It is so adorable and funny, it's the best!

I have a confession to make - I love One Direction! I love listening to a bit of pop music that makes me want to dance and sing at the top of my lungs!

 I used to play the saxophone - I played it for about 15 years and stopped when I was going through a difficult time in my life. I still have one back at my parents house in Australia and whenever I pick it up I can still play it. I would love to get back into it one day.
I also used to dance when I was younger - and before I moved to the UK I started again and did contemporary ballet, jazz ballet and ballroom dancing for about a year. Since moving here I have bought new dance shoes and clothes but haven't found anywhere to do classes yet. I'm hoping to start dancing again after I've had the baby!
  Forcing my boyfriend to sing and dance to One Direction songs with me!

 This is such a hard question - I have so many! Aside from the big bloggers that everyone loves - Zoella & Sprinkle Of Glitter, I have made some new blogger friends during my time blogging. I love reading Katy's blog -, Kirstie's blog - and Elle's blog -

 My favourite city is probably Melbourne, Australia where I grew up - mostly because it is familiar to me and there is so much to do. London is too big and scary for me!

 I have a history of depression, anxiety and PTSD. When I found out I was pregnant I stopped taking medication and feel like I have been coping really well considering, although it has been very hard.
