Big news, my friends: The Spendicate is getting a much needed update. To go along with all of the big changes happening in my life -- new job, new apartment -- I wanted to refresh my blog as well. Which is why on or around May 1st, The Spendicate will... Continue reading

I'm pretty sure this graphic says it all, but all I'm going to add is that I'm not at all a hair accessories person -- I like to keep it free and simple -- however, I feel converted thanks to ban.do. I want all the things: headbands, bobby pins, barrettes... Continue reading

I've lost count of how many Stitch Fixes I've received, which should say a lot about how enamored I am with their service. Quick rundown: Stitch Fix is like a Birchbox for clothes, which I find way more valuable than monthly boxes of free cosmetic samples that I'll inevitably lose.... Continue reading

Moving day is quickly approaching, and maybe I've been going a little crazy buying home goods for my new digs. I've found that I mostly like buying kitchen things, which is ironic, since I'm not one to cook. But kitchen things are the prettiest, and bird-shaped things are the best,... Continue reading

I'm over this snow, you guys. I want some spring weather, so I can rock these new Toms sandals. Yup, that's right -- Toms makes sandals. I'm ready to make all of these my spring shoe wardrobe, so ... can it be April now? Please? Toms Spring 2014 by amanda-digiondomenico... Continue reading

I hate to admit it, but I have a problem. Most of the time, I'm not that into video games. My boyfriend will be the first to tell you that as soon as I get a gun in my hand, I can't figure out how to not look at the... Continue reading

Things That Make Me Go Om by amanda-digiondomenico on Polyvore Tiny Devotions — The Memento Mala / Suja's Organic Juices Keep You Balanced and Hydrated I've been really good about buying clothes lately. Don't get me wrong, I still find ways to spend money. But lately, I've been spending my... Continue reading

So, yes, it's true: I've been dreaming BIG TIME about summer. But in order to cope with my summer-sickness -- since it's January and there's no hope for time moving any faster than it does -- I've decided that it's better to hope for snow and all the cute accoutrements... Continue reading

Thanks to my subscriptions to Fast Company, Wired, Design Bureau, HOW, and Print magazine (I have a problem, obviously. Thanks for noticing.), my daily reading of theSkimm, and my obsessive-compulsive loading and re-loading of Gawker and Gizmodo, I discover a lot of things that blow my mind/earn a bookmark/make me...

Is it blasphemous to use the term "holy trinity" in reference to style choices? Eh, I feel like Pope Francis is pretty cool, and I don't think he'd mind me using a Catholic term to describe making good fashion choices -- especially since he brushed that whole "a person needs... Continue reading

I've been in this weird mood lately where I would like to shop, but I would rather not spend money. I want things, and yet I can't pull the trigger. Maybe this is adulthood. Maybe I'm growing up. Does spending wisely equal maturity? Regardless, when I get in these rather... Continue reading

I have to admit, I have a weak spot for retro headphones. You know what? I'm just going to say it: I want to be Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer. When you're done judging me, you can continue reading. Done? Good. So as I was saying, I've come... Continue reading

Last week, I found out that I'm going to Bald Head Island in North Carolina in September, and like any normal person, this meant one thing: I need a new wardrobe. I hit up Quiksilver's Women's collection, since it has a classy, beachy feel. And Bald Head Island is, in... Continue reading

Thanks to Fab, I stumbled upon albiedesigns, and I've had her Etsy shop in an open tab on my browser all week. I can't get enough of her simplicity, wordplay, and use of color. She makes me want to paint and draw all day. And fill my imaginary home with... Continue reading

First thing's first: I love my breakfast sandwiches. Like, love. Like, so much love, my boyfriend bakes biscuits on the weekend so I can have a breakfast sandwich when I roll out of bed. So, of course, when I saw this breakfast-sandwich-making-wonder, my jaw may have hit the keyboard. Maybe... Continue reading

HGTV's new Folio app is only feeding my addition to all things that make me drool and daydream about my future home. My favorite part of the app is that you can save your favorite room photos for future reference, so when I actually have the funds to make my... Continue reading

I've been obsessed with Satya's delicate yoga and Hindu-inspired jewelry ever since I worked in a yoga studio, surrounded by oms, namastes, and Sanskrit. At the time, though, I couldn't afford the pricey jewelry on a part-time hourly wage. Plus, I was constantly surrounded by the good vibes of the... Continue reading

I leave for the desert in about 10 days -- specifically, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. So, I'm starting to ponder, "what exactly do you bring to the desert?" I know all about packing for beach vacations, but those rules no longer apply. I have to re-think my whole... Continue reading

I'm really into this long-hair-don't-care-coffee-is-king-typography-is-my-god look lately. I plan on rocking it as soon as my Tattly order arrives. Meanwhile, I'll be watching YouTube videos on how to get my ombre hair lookin' right. Temporary Bad Ass by amanda-digiondomenico featuring a bird necklace Bird necklace / Ron Finley Organic Scoop...

Work has been crazy these past couple weeks. With testing a website redesign, staying on top of my normal day-to-day duties and juggling a bunch of upcoming projects, I haven't been away from my desk much, which is a little (a lot!) depressing. My solution: make use of the empty... Continue reading

Today is the one-year anniversary of The Spendicate! It's hard to believe that I've been sharing my shopping obsession with you good folks for a year now. It feels like just yesterday that I was scribbling around on my laptop when my doppleganger appeared from the ether. So to celebrate,... Continue reading

I officially graduate with a Master's degree in 2 and a half weeks, and I've already found the dress I plan on wearing to the ceremony. Since the dress was on the sale rack at Madewell, it was an easy choice. My only problem now is: what shoes should I... Continue reading

This past Saturday, I attended a "style session" with Clinton Kelly -- co-host of What Not to Wear -- at Macy's. I used to be a fan of What Not to Wear back in the day, but I didn't expect Clinton Kelly to be so hilarious -- and actually informative.... Continue reading
