So this is me, Amanda Deflavio, a 26 year old Raleigh gal stuck in the middle of “you only live once” & “be responsible.” After graduating with a BA in Stuido Art from UNC Wilmington, I ventured back to Raleigh, N.C. to pursue a career in sales & advertising. I recently started this blog as a visual diary & collection of my adventures from daily life.
Why OAK + PINE ??
Well, simply because I live in Raleigh (City of Oaks), North Carolina (State of the Pines). Simple concept focusing on my love for my city and all things local in NC.
• eating & drinking at new local digs
• health & fitness
• learning to cook
• hanging with my boyfriend & puppy
•Mochas or Irish coffee
• the outdoors (missing the beach always)
• no meat on my pizza
• & now blogging
I look forward to sharing this next part of my life with you & hope you enjoy it just the same. Please message me for any collaborations!
