My name is Amanda and I currently live in the Washington, D.C area. As someone who loves to write, I thought starting a blog catered to my interest would be a fun way to create a portfolio. I created The Ritzy Gypsy to express my bohemian nature and luxurious taste. I love science, reading, hiking, and being able to explore new places as much as I love experimenting with beauty trends and eating at upscale restaurants. I used to think that loving NASA and Chanel made me superficial, but now I just like to think I’m well rounded! I try to keep my blog as authentic as possible, and I hope you enjoy having a little peek into the mind of a ritzy gypsy.
