Happy Spring!*

*Maybe a slightly inaccurate depiction of the actual situation. 

So much ❤️

Aw, I ❤️ you too, lower east side.

The loveliest of commutes

Maybe they didn't build us enough crosstown trains because they secretly wanted us to discover how lovely it is to be forced to walk across central park sometimes. Or maybe they wanted the Upper East Side to feel like it's on another planet, I dunno.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Look, you found a four leaf clover! Granted, you found it on social media and not in the grass, but surely it's just as lucky.

Love at first bite

I saw the giant handmade frog marshmallow staring happily up at me from my hot chocolate and I knew we were meant to be.

How did this happen?!?

YAY!! My app has come so far so fast! Go, little app, go!

Yummy Math

I support this pun! Dessert is just as important as the particular infinite decimal that is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.

Dispensing the goods

Finally visited the cupcake ATM! It's like a normal ATM except hooked up to a bakery so you can withdraw treats! 😂

Seasonally appropriate

The less tropical the weather, the more my heart wants to wear pineapples to compensate.


Didn't actually see any subway ghosts here, but this part of the station is so creepy that surely this is their stop.

Rock on

Love the early morning guard singing loudly to himself and clearly enjoying the good acoustics in the subway entrance.

I missed you, sunshine!

Just when all hope seemed lost, the heroes used time travel to vanquish the darkness and save the daylight, and everyone lived happily ever after in daylight savings time forever.

If only

Saw the giant vat of rainbow sprinkles at the bakery and thought...

You're welcome.

Just resorted to my first ever energy drink and was inspired to generously donate my professional design skills to help the company rethink their packaging.

Love delivery!

My friend helped her three-year-old send me a postcard while they were out of town for a few days and I felt super special.

Tweet Tweet

My night owl friend met my early bird self for breakfast and it was such a neat treat to share my favorite time of day.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the sky...

I posted the inclement weather party pic, and one of my friends was bummed that sun wasn't invited. But then she decides that sun was having his own party in the clouds on a playground with rainbow sprinkles. This seemed to me like a necessary drawing. 

You're Invited!

Whoa, it is snow-hail-rain-winding out there! It's like all the weather got together for a party!

Success (I think)!

In the app store universe it's not much, but in Amanda world it's huge! So, I'm celebrating—woo!! Thanks everybody!

Look, look, look!!!

My friend Allison made pins with my app art!! She is just the awesomest.

Come on, now.

I resisted the giant stuffed cupcake, but now a rainbow pompom bird? Seriously, what do you think I have—willpower made of steel?

Highly Recommend

My art school peeps and I did one of those classes where you drink and pretend to be an artist, and it was definitely funtimes. 

I'd drink to that.

What? A hot chocolate festival? Sign me up!


What a beautiful gloomy day.


You can get my animated emoji for your texts!

He's always there when I need him.

I'm glad we're friends, coffee. Some days I particularly appreciate your encouragement and support.

Pinky Swear

I know I overuse the word magical, but guys, someone stuffed Lincoln Center full of balloons and I promise that there is not a better adjective for this situation.


Not only is this bakery cute and full of yummy treats, it also has BENDY STRAWS for your iced coffee, and I happen to be a huge fan of bendy straws.

Treats to the rescue!

The exhibit we wanted to see was closed, but then we got treats and the adventure was saved!

I see the logic.

"No! Do not put those ice cubes on that pizza!" —my friend
"But it's hot!" —his kid
"LOL" —me

It's official!!

Licensed and coming soon to an app store near you!

Champion of Cute

Have you seen the olympic mascot?? Gold medal in adorableness.

Curling Stone Cuteness

Pretty psyched for curling 'cause those giant puck things have got to be the cutest sporting accessory ever invented.

Yeah, running with fire.

How fun would it be to carry the torch? Except the relay running part. And the stairs part. And maybe the whole "athlete" part...

So Ready

Go, 'Murica, go!

Hipper than a Hipster

"Your style is so cool," I told the dude at the doughnut shop. He was so excited. "Aw, thanks!! You just made my day!!"

Adorablness Alert

Random declaration of my love for the little red balloon mosaics on the walls at the new 72nd st stop on the Q.

Sign me up.

Pretty drinks and fried sugary treats? My heart is calling and I must go.

Here is what my milk tea rose latte actually looked like:


That feeling when you think you've just missed the train but the conductor sees you running and holds the doors that last extra second so you don't have to wait another 20 minutes.

Look out, world.

My parents got me a suitcase for my birthday! I'm ready for my next adventure!

Happy birthday to meeeeee...

My parents came to visit for my birthday and brought treats!


"Dreams Dough Come True," says the neon sign at the edible cookie dough shop.

Sneaky little donut licker.

I turned my back for 10 seconds!

Yeah, hook me up!

"Birthday stickers!" declared my friends' two-year-old. She wanted to hold the sheet, but couldn't get them off and also didn't want any help putting them on. Fortunately the complicated logistics didn't impede the good time had by both parties.


Yesterday was such a colorful day!
