Remember how David and I had that giveaway where we were going to fly a winner and their friend to NYC? Well the girls who won that giveaway came in town this weekend! Alanna and Kennedy are from Kansas City and they are the sweetest girls ever, we loved getting to meet them. We picked them up from the airport and took them to dinner and the whole time we talked at dinner I kept thinking how thats how every mom hopes their girls will turn out like! They have good heads on their shoulders. We met them at the park one morning and ate treats from my favorite bakery, I braided their hair, and we watched Atticus stuff his face with croissants and a muffin haha!

Anyways – wanted to share some of these pics because it was so fun having them out. We are definitely going to be doing another giveaway like this, this fall! I am thinking around Fashion Week so one of you can come with me to a show or two. So stay tuned πŸ™‚

We just arrived in Amsterdam – a bit of a silly story how we got here and trying to decide if I am too embarrassed to share it on here or not haha.. we will see. But follow along on Instagram to see some of our adventures! xo.

  1. How often do you go inbetween washing your hair? When you do skip a few days, do you use any dry shampoo that you are in love with?

  2. Your hair right now = EVERYTHING. love love love it on you. also, what is that gorgeous colour on your lips that you seem to rock a lot??

  3. So fun Amber! I couldn’t imagine meeting you and your adorable family!!

  12. Hi!
    I saw your videos on healthy snacks/meals and yesterday I made the bean salad, cucumber bites, caprese bites, and gala apple sandwich in preparation for the week! They all turned out so yummy! I really like to eat healthy but I’m kind of picky so sometimes it’s tough to find healthy things I really enjoy.
    Me and my husband just came back from New York a few days ago (he had to go for work and I tagged along to visit an old friend) and man what an amazing city! It was such a dream, I didn’t expect to fall in love with it the way that I did. Looking forward to your next giveaway πŸ˜‰
    xo

    1. Hi Sarah!! i am so glad you liked the healthy snack video yay!! They are still some of my favorite things to eat during the day πŸ™‚ And how fun!! Glad you got to tag along. I bet you two had fun!

  13. This is so sweet! I bet those girls were on cloud nine!

    I’m gonna win next time πŸ˜‰ …unless it’s during NYFW and I’m walking in the shows haha. If I ever see you in a crowd, I’m finding you afterwards and fangirling hard!
