Happy Sunday! Welcome to So Last Week, all of the things I’ve read in the past seven days that are totally worth your time. Speaking of time, I’ve been spending a lot of it giving It’s Amanda Lauren a makeover. The new site is looking gorgeous and will be more informative, easier to navigate and more shoppable than ever. I’m hoping to go live Monday or Tuesday, at the very latest. I’ve been blogging since July and while the current site is pretty, I’ve just outgrown it in so many ways. And while I’m so not a DIY person, I designed the new site all by myself (so grownup), did lots of backend way beyond my pay grade and I just can’t wait to share it with everyone. In the meantime, enjoy these informative posts written by other people.
