Barefoot Blonde Top knot (see a tutorial in this video) A lot of you didn’t know how to find the top knot tutorial so if in the interactive video you first select ‘Street Chic Braided Buns’ and then ‘Show Time’ and then ‘Lets Eat’ it will take you to the top knot tutorial!

David and I have taken a couple quick weekend vacations while our dog has been doing his weekend training sessions (gotta get him all ready for baby! :) ) So we had a little weekend in Vegas and another in San Francisco! We love road trips and the whole time on our way to San Fran we were talking about all of our favorite memories from our travels this last year and we were laughing that all of our favorites weren’t sunsets or beaches they were the nights we slept in a tent in a random field in Italy or times in our $10 a night hotel in Morocco that I was so sure had bed bugs at the time or hikes gone terribly wrong in St. Croix haha. It is always the ‘adventurous’ things that are the funnest to talk about later and we had way too much fun talking for hours and hours about all of the funny things that happened on our trips. I am so glad we got to do so much traveling and especially glad that we were adventurous and chose tents over nicer hotels while we are young and can do those kinds of things. :)

Hope everyone had a good Monday! We got our stroller, crib, and all that fun stuff in the mail and I am on cloud nine setting it all up!

Have a great week everyone! xx

  1. Amber,
    You and your man are so stinkin cute. You look amazing! What does your workout entale? Also are you doing different workouts during pregnancy? Also thanks for sharing the cute suite links!

    1. Thanks so much girl!! I basically have been doing weights for my arms (shoulders, triceps, biceps) and I do a lot of oblique work outs and lots of lunges haha but other than that just simple cardio! I don’t work out every day though just maybe 3 times a week honestly!

  2. Hi there! I love your hair tutorials and am dying to see the top knot one. However, the link takes you to the tresseme one and there’s no top knot there? Can you provide correct link?

    1. Hi Heather and Cathy!! So sorry that I am just getting back to you! So the link I provided for the top knot is correct but if you can see, its an interactive video, so basically for the first option you are going to select ‘Street Chic Braided Buns’ and then ‘Show Time’ and then ‘Lets Eat’ it will take you to the top knot tutorial! xoxo

    1. Thanks girl!! And watch some tutorials and you will totally get the hang of it! xx

  3. I love the lash extensions . Iam considering getting some but Iam wondering if they ruin your original lashes when they come off. My lashes are so blonde that I have to put heavy coats of mascara on every day.

    1. Yeah mine are blonde as well and mascara takes soo long so lash extensions are a huge time saver for me! As long as you don’t pick your lashes or pull them off then your real lashes will be just fine! you just have to be gentle with them but they are amazing!

  4. I’ll be honest, it was kind of unpleasant to see a woman who looks like she is nine months pregnant half naked. I don’t think anyone wants to see that…anyone.

    Also, your dresses seem kind of short for a pregnant lady. I just think that as a Mormon, your skirts should be longer, and as a decent individual, cover that bump.

    1. I like to think I can still be a “decent” individual and show my pregnant stomach which I happen to be very proud of and I think every pregnant woman should be proud of. Clearly you don’t feel the same and that is fine but your condescending comment is not welcome here.

    2. Jess, I think that you are being extremely rude. No woman deserves to be spoken to and judged in that way. I think she looks beautiful and her pictures are always classy and tasteful. Her posts have made me excited about becoming pregnant and I love that she is sharing her journey with her followers!

    3. I think you just want attention, but I have to add my two cents. I really enjoy Amber’s pictures. Nowadays I feel like girls always get told that to be embarassed by their bodies. We can never be “perfect” enough to the worlds standards. I really enjoy when girls flaunt their bodies in the right way! Amber is not trying to be scandalous. She is wearing a bathing suit just like you and me, the only difference is that she is pregnant! (And looks super good!) I would encourage you to take a look in the mirror and define who YOU want to be. Don’t worry about anybody else’s opinion. If you are there, great, but don’t judge other people for their standard of comfortability. Whenever I get comments that are of nobody else’s business, I always tell people that modesty is between me and God. Nobody else.

  5. Ahhh you’re so beautiful it’s not even fair 😛 I wish I had the hair to pull off that braid,mine’s way too thin )”:

    1. Aw thank you!! and oh girl mine is wayy too thin too! I wear extensions for all my hair styles! :)

  6. I need to learn to do my hair like yours and you look gorgeous by the way with the baby bump.

    1. Thanks Anu!! And I have some tutorials on my youtube channel if you want to look at those :)

  7. Isn’t it funny that the things you think will be the most memorable end up being the least memorable?! It’s always those little, special moments that leave the biggest impression. So wonderful you got to travel as a couple so much this past year! It will be both different and exciting when you have baby to join you in future trips! Love these photos and love following along on ig. Those bathers are too cute! Also adore your “hippie haristyle”. xo

    1. It really is so funny!! Always the times you are slightly uncomfortable that are the most memorable! :) Thanks for all your sweet comments they always make my day!

    1. Thanks lady!! Its getting hard to dress this bump haha glad you like though

  8. Wow. You look amazing in your pregnancy. Beautiful. Best wishes from UK.

    1. Thanks so much!! And oh yeah it was still SO fun! Honestly the weather was only off and on the first day we got there and then Saturday it was perfect!! :)
