My latest blog post for GUESS ACCESS: Global Fashion Blog !

Since last October, I have a been a blogger for the GUESS Watches Global Fashion Blog, GUESS ACCESS. After a long competition that included securing votes and submitting a style blog post, I was named a Canadian finalist! When I won, I was elated! GUESS is a brand that I have adored since my high school days, where my must-have accessory was none other than a GUESS bag. I loved to carry my small patent leather shoulder strap purse or my purple metallic boho bag with faux snakeskin embellishment, and I especially adored my medium-sized denim bag with a black and white photo of a pin-up style model with pink sequin cursive letters that said, "GUESS"written across it. Take a peek at said handbag below!

A GUESS bag was definitely an essential part of my everyday look, so that is why that I am so happy that I am able to team up with the brand to deliver on-trend, fun articles for your reading pleasure. To read my first GUESS blog post about FASHION Magazine's 35th Anniversary Party, click here!

For my second blogging assignment for GUESS ACCESS, I was given the task of writing about something that I like to do on the weekend. As much as I love the nightlife, sometimes there is nothing that I want to do more than relax at home. Being the visual person that I am, I love to add decorative touches to my personalize home and have it really reflect my style. For the assignment, I decided to write about a crafty, D.I.Y. idea that I have been dying to try for awhile, and that is making a photo board! Photo boards are a creative and functional way to display photos of the ones you love and those crazy, fun times that make you smile.

You will then be led to a page where this very same image will appear with the name Amanda Stines (that's me!) written in pink letters underneath the photo. Then, would you be so very sweet and VOTE for me to become the face of Something Sweet,  only Lise Watier's latest fragrance that smells every bit decadent, confectionary and of course so very sweet!

Yours truly has entered the Lise Watier Something Sweet contest where the winner gets the fabulous opportunity to become the face of the fragrance. To win this opportunity would be a dream come true. I fell in love with perfume at a young age and used to admire all of the pretty, delicate bottles that my mother had decorate her vanity. The soft smell of Boucheron still reminds me of my grandmother and Angel by Thierry Mugler was my very first scent. Above that, posing for photos and sharing things that I am passionate about and adore, have truly become second nature to me and I always light up whenever I get the opportunity to partake in all things girly, fashionable, beauty-related and, sweet! 

To have the opportunity to proudly and sweetly represent Something Sweet would be an amazing opportunity, but I cannot do it without all of you, my wonderful Amanda's Fashion Spot readers so head over to http://somethingsweet.lisewatier.com and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!! Please and thank you! :)
