About Me

Hi! I'm Amy, the creator of Cupcakes & Couture. I'm an Executive Assistant at Rue La La by day which I absolutely love! :) I live in the beautiful city of Boston and I love being creative and making new things. My site features a bit of everything: recipes, outfit photos, DIY projects, gift guides, beauty, style inspiration, interior design, shopping lists and inspirational quotes.

I'm a lover of all things whimsical & magical and I still believe in fairy tales. I'm the epitome of feminine and wish I could live solely in lace, silk, ruffles, cashmere and sequins. I danced from ages 3-22, so I'm always inspired by dance and my favorite color is ballet pink. I thrive when I'm creating new things that make my life and surroundings more beautiful, inspiring and delicious! Click here to learn more about me by reading my #RealBloggerBeauty story. 

I absolutely love all animals and have two cats, Phoebe (10) and Oliver (10 months.) I currently serve on the board of the Animal Rescue League of Boston Young Professionals Group and the board for the Miss Boston scholarship program, which is part of the Miss America Organization! Other causes & organizations I'm passionate about are mental health awareness, suicide prevention, anti-bullying, The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, The Humane Society of the US, and The Wounded Warrior Project.

Despite the fact that I'm a super girly-girl, I am also obsessed with the Boston Bruins! I used to play hockey in college and I really love to skate. My favorite NHL players are Andrew Ference, Johnny Boychuk, Shawn Thornton and Adam McQuaid.

  3. Giveaways: I will host a giveaway for an item or items from your product line. This would usually require me to do a product styling post or review post first so that I am giving away something I have personal experience with and would use myself.
