Bloggers {Unveiled}: Amanda Nistor from Ruffled!

I'm so excited to kick off the Bloggers {Unveiled} series today with Amanda Nistor, editor of Ruffled. If you're new to the series, you can learn all about it here.  Here's Amanda!

The Blogger:

Hi, I'm Amanda, I'm the editor of Ruffled. I started Ruffled in 2008 as a source of inspiration for vintage brides planning their weddings. In three years, the site has expanded into indie and intimate weddings with beautiful handcrafted details in addition to my love for all things vintage.

Thanks for inviting me to be a part of your column!


{Unveiled} Questions:

How did you get started in the wedding world?
While planning my vintage-inspired wedding back in 2008, there were no resources easily available to brides. I combined my obsession with vintage with wedding planning withdrawal and then the rest is history.

What is your makeup staple? 
SPF 30 tinted moisturizer!

What's one thing that others don't know about you?
My husband would say that I'm very shy, but I beg to differ...

What's one piece of advice you would give to others trying to get started with their own business?
Keep a part-time job until your business is self-sufficient.

What is your favorite part about weddings? 
The love that is poured over from everyone involved in them. I pinch myself everyday to be in contact with couples who are madly in love and with vendors who love what they do.

What is your hobby outside of blogging {is there life outside blogging} :)?
I love making jewelry for myself...whenever I have a short break from Ruffled :)
