Welcome to pittstopblog!


Whether you have lived in the city your whole life, you’re a new resident of the Burgh, or you’re just making a pittstop, this blog has something for you. We are setting out to capture the beauty of this city through food, fashion, and fun. In addition, we hope to provide you with some advice & insight as we learn to navigate the adult world after graduating from college.

Co-Founder | Writer | Editor

Amanda graduated from Kent State University in 2016 with a degree in communication studies. Pittsburgh has always been home for her, so she was eager to move back to the city to begin her career. Amanda was looking for a way to combine her love for this city with her passion for storytelling. Her solution? Create a kickass blog.

Cassandra graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. The big changes making their way into her life urged her to team up with her best friend to create something awesome. She couldn’t wait to share her love for writing and put her love of art and fashion to work. Sometimes we’re so ready to move on to the next thing, that we forget to stop and look around. So, that’s her goal here. To make you stop and look around at one of the greatest cities in the world.
