Me, David, and Atticus went to Disneyland while we were in California and it was SO FUN!!! I honestly was so shocked at how much you can actually do with a baby at Disney. There were a lot of rides we were able to go on with him and he loved looking at all the moving characters and colors – we actually didn’t even make it on all the rides because there were so many. The stroller parking lots were a bit of a shock to me haha! I haven’t been to Disneyland since I was like 12 and for some reason I don’t remember seeing 900 strollers parked along walkways haha it was so hysterical. But so convenient!!

When we first got there it was cold but then a couple hours later I was literally SWEATING!! So if you’re wondering “why is she wearing cashmere and leather to DISNEYLAND..?” I am wondering the same thing too!!! Definitely did not think that through! Although I did bring a pair of back up pants in case I ripped these ….. because guess what? I totally tried to squeeze them on when I was a little TOO pregnant and totally ripped a hole in the crotch hahah! Luckily it was easily fixed but I learned that sometimes you are just a little to large to fit into your leather pants.

That picture of Atticus standing on David’s hands was so fun to take because literally EVERYONE behind was clapping and “aww”ing ! It was literally so funny!! They thought it was so funny and he was loving all the attention. He is definitely a social baby and loves to smile at anyone who comes to pay him attention. Whenever we get on a plane he will smile and giggle and everyone as we make our way to our seat and then when we get off as we are standing there waiting for the stroller he will smile at everyone getting off. I love watching everyone smile back as they walk by.. except the occasional grumpy person who wants nothing to do with a baby smiling at them – which is always a little weird to me, but hey not everyone does the baby thing!

We are in London and I spent most of the day relaxing in the hotel because I woke up feeling SO sick 🙁 I wanted to make sure I didn’t get MORE sick before tomorrow’s big event! Not sure if you saw my instagram but ghd invited me, Atticus, and my sister to come to London and attend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show!! I will be chatting with the models and their hairstylists backstage and getting all the deets on their hair and makeup secrets! I am so beyond excited as this has been a dream of mine for soooo many years! I have always been inspired by them so it will be beyond crazy to be actually talking face to face with them – I am actually really nervous! But be sure to follow my insta so you can see behind the scenes pics and different tips they share!

So much ranting! I am leaving now! xoxox

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  1. HI AMBER,

    I TRIED SENDING A PERSONAL MESSAGE, BUT IT WASN’T WORKING. MY FAMILY WILL BE GOING TO DISNEYLAND IN APRIL. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAVE ANY TIPS. MY SON WILL BE ALMOST 2 YEARS OLD. HOW MANY DAYS DO YOU SPEND IN DISNEYLAND/DISNEY WORLD WHEN YOU GO. WE WERE THINKING MAYBE ONE DAY. WHERE DID YOU STAY WHEN YOU WENT TO DISNEYLAND? SORRY SO MANY QUESTIONS. YOU SHOULD DO A POST ABOUT DISNEY TIPS FOR FAMILIES WITH SMALL CHILDREN. I WOULD LOVE THAT 🙂

    1. Hi Jessica!! How fun!! That will be a blast! 🙂 We usually do two days because we like to spread it out. It is a little exhausting trying to do everything in one day with kids! When we went to do Disney World we stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort and when we went to Disneyland we usually use HomeAway and stay in a rental. I hope that helps!! xo

  2. Hey Amber! I keep trying to send a message, but it won’t work. How old was Atticus when you guys took him to Disneyland the first time? My husband and I are thinking of taking our little girl when she is around 9 months old, and I am just wondering if you guys spent one day or multiple days.
    Thanks!
    Brittany

    1. Hi love!! Sorry about that! And we took Atticus when he was around 7 months 🙂 So I think 9 months is great!! We did one day at Disneyland with him but we just got back from Disney World and split it up into two days and it was so nice!! Good luck!! xo

  3. These pictures are priceless!!! Could I ask if they are all natural or if you edit them (and if you do what you use) cause they are all so gorgeous!!

  4. I’M TAKING MY 15 MONTH OLD TO DISNEYLAND FOR 4 DAYS. PLEASE TELL ME HOW ATTICUS NAPPED?? OR OTHER MOMMY ADVICE. WE HAVE THE ORBIT STROLLER AND MY SON HAS NEVER NAPPED IN THE STROLLER.

  5. Hello Amber, I follow you and I absolutely love Atticus pics! He’s so sweet and cute!
    Also I would like to know which kinda camera do you use, your pics are amazing!!!
    Thanks and happy holidays!

  6. Awww look at how happy Atticus looks! Although I will never get why people have fun at Disneyland it certainly looks like you guys did! For me this means stress pure and it is the last thing on earth I am gonna do- lmao!

  7. almost 1000 dollar pants, and a 270 dollar sweater………….i bet so many readers relate to you. too bad we all don’t have 1500 bucks to spend on an outfit for disneyland! way to go barefoot blonde… ridiculous. i bet you get a lot of satisfaction out of all these strangers treating you like a celebrity, hey news flash, you should hear what people say in real life, not on the web.

    1. wow i am so sorry….. clearly I need to take a frickin midol. you’re beautiful, and my nasty jealous girl side got a little carried away. still think paying that much for pants is a joke ;), but for real, I’m sorry.

  8. hello hello – huge fan of your blog! I ve never commented before so I hope I m doing this right lol. I m expecting my first baby in January and I dead set on buying whatever camera and lens you own to capture every moment. I know your blog is geared towards fashion I was wondering if you d do a post of your camera/lens/techniques. Your photos are professional quality in my opinion – I d love to learn from someone who just does it as a hobby.

    It d make my day if you replied!
    Enjoy London with that little lovebug of yours !

    xoxo,
    Emily

  14. You’ve gained so much baby weight, are you planning on dieting? You were just so thin and admirable pre-baby. Maybe you can give out tips if you’ve started? You look like you’ve lost some but not nearly as much as you could. Btw, are you a hair stylist?! Your hair always looks great 🙂

    1. Molly,

      This is literally my first blog comment EVER. I just saw your comment and my heart literally sunk. I have been reading a lot about rude commenters/ bullying that goes on on the blog world and now I can say I have officially witnessed it. Just because you gave a nice comment doesn’t mean that your rude one about baby way is disregarded. Have you heard the saying “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all?” You truly don’t have to share your negative opinion, nor is it your business to say such a thing–truly . It isn’t needed, warranted, appreciated, etc. We live in a world filled with so many expectations on women. We need to appreciate women and stand against what our culture tells us. That is truly beautiful! Beauty is just as much inward as it is outward. What you have on the inside will show on the outside 🙂 We don’t need to tear women down. It’s so silly! Your comment could cause insecurity, so let’s just maybe think about how the other person could feel?! I think you would appreciate that too.

      Amber, you are beautifully and wonderfully made! You don’t have to prove to anyone, lose a certain amount of weight, etc. to be beautiful– as I am sure you already know… but just wanted to encourage you in this! Love your blog! xxo

    2. Wow. I think she looks wonderful. And as someone who has had a baby (I assume you have not-maybe I am wrong?), I can tell you women lose the weight at different rates after the baby was born. It takes nine months to put it on, and I was told my my healthcare provider as well as reading it in several books, that it can take nine months, more or less, to take it all off. She has mentioned working out/lifting weights as well…perhaps she is more muscular now? It’s too bad that you felt it was necessary to try and tear someone down over something so silly as her weight. I hope your day gets better and you start feeling better about yourself.

    3. Molly,

      Your comment actually makes me furious. I think Amber looks GREAT! She is super lean and for you to ask her if she is going to start “dieting” because YOU think she has gained weight is so uncalled for. I don’t see any baby weight that she has gained and even if she has, that’s NATURAL. She is a mommy for goodness sakes.

      Anyways, Amber thank you for posting, I love love love your blog and you are an inspiration! Don’t take these negative comments to heart.

      Xoxo
      [a different] Molly
