We’re flying out to Utah today and we are going to be there spending time with David’s side of the family for the Fourth and we are super excited! I have a list of my favorite restaurants I want to go to that I really miss along with a list of snow cone shacks I need to go to! Wanted to pop in and share some pictures from a shoot I did with Maurices a while back in California!! The photographer is also a stunt woman on the side and she is pretty dang cool. I love styling my own hair but I also really love having it done occasionally and I loved the hairstyles she did for this shoot. I especially like the black textured dress because it went well with everything. They have so many cute summer dresses, most of which can double as beach/swimsuit cover ups which is a definite plus for summer;)

Hope you all have a good day!

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  1. I love your two fishtail braids they are beautiful.Do you think that I could do that with hair a few inches shorter than yours.

  2. I love your two distal braids they are beautiful.Do you think that I could do that with hair a few inches shorter than yours.

  3. Aww I always love seeing these behind the scenes shots! Usually I don’t trust anybody but myself with giving me hairstyles, but letting other people do it can be good because you might discover new styles (and products) along the way 😀

    1. Thanks so much for the great feedback!! I am so glad you liked the post!! And totally!! It was so fun having someone else do my hair for once 🙂

  4. Hello, Amber! I love your posts, they are so cute! Can you write smth about taking care of a baby?
    And when are you going to give a birth to your baby-girl?)
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Dasha!! That is a great idea for a future post, I will keep that suggestion in mind 🙂 Thank you!! xo

  5. Such a babe! Enough said. But, to add (haha) I love that the hairstylist did your hair in ways that are you, if that makes any sense. You know those experiences when you get your hair done and it just doesn’t fit your face or it’s not a way that you would’ve worn your hair, and then you look not yourself?? Well, she did this shoot perfectly! I could picture you having done your own hair for this and you look stunning!!

    Love,

    1. Thank you so much Sarah!! That is such a nice compliment!! And I know exactly what you mean!! Not all hairstyles work for everyone, especially me!! I have to choose ones that compliment my face 🙂 I am glad you liked what she did for this shoot!! Thanks for reading!! xoxo

  6. the in laws live around SLC right? if so what Snow cone places do you go to? I’ve been living in SLC ( previously from Heber city) for a year and I can’t find a good place around where we are and I have literally been searching! ha! Snow cones are kind of a staple for a good summer!!

    1. My in-laws aren’t quite in SLC, they are about 20 minutes south 🙂 People said to try Snoasis in Alpine, UT!! I heard it’s amazing!! I agree, such a staple!! I hope your 4th is amazing!! xo

  7. Amber you are too cute! I always look forward to seeing your blog posts and about your family – you inspire me! Have a great 4th of July!!! God bless! 🙂

    1. You are so sweet!! Thank you for the lovely comment!! Have a wonderful week beautiful!! xoxo

  8. Hey Amber loving the pink hair 🙂 how do you stay in such great shape ? X nz

    1. Hey Chantelle!! For the most part, we are a pretty active family and we walk A LOT in NYC haha but other than that I try and go to the gym several times a week!! I have a major sweet tooth so it is hard for me to watch that but I try to eat pretty healthy for the most part! xo

      1. Thank you so sweet you reply to everyone 🙂 it means a lot especially from all the way at the bottom of New Zealand 🙂

  9. Hey amber,

    This is completely unrelated to this post- sorry. I’ve been a follower for a while. I recently ended up on some blogger trash site and found myself kind of getting entranced (the same way you would get wrapped up in a tabloid) but after reading for a while I took a step back and just felt incredibly sad. For those women/ men taking their time to comment and critique every little thing about someone else (they’re probably reading so..whats up!) and for you. I can’t imagine how you feel. I think if we all took a second to think about how badly it hurts when someone else is judging us when they truly don’t know our character then maybe we would stop doing it to others. Anyways I just wanted to tell you to keep your chin up- i’m sure you don’t allow yourself to go on that website but it must be hard when you know it exists. Just know that there’s so many people who think you’re doing great. I really love the honesty and sincerity from this blog- and i’m hoping that is something that will continue. When I first stumbled upon blogs I was excited because I really love that women can help other women with tips regarding fashion and beauty or just sharing their life experiences so we can all grow and learn from each other. I still think that is a great concept, but it only works if both sides hold up their end. The readers and followers must show compassion to a person that is literally sharing their life with you. The blogger must stay true and honest with themselves and the reader no matter how tempting it is to “sell out” or be consumed with creating the pintrest worthy content no matter what. Anyways I think you’re doing a great job and I wanted to share that with you!

    1. Hi Jenna!!
      Thanks so much for taking the time for your thoughtful comment, it meant A LOT to me!! I appreciated every single word of it 🙂 I am so blessed to have amazing followers such as yourself. I try to focus on the positive feedback I receive as opposed to the negativity. But you are so right, it is so hard to know that kind of talk is out there and not wonder what is being said 🙁 I know there will be always be haters, but I am just lucky to have so many more supporters on my side. Anyway, thank you for making my day so great with this!! Love ya!! xoxo

  10. I hope Hokulia and Snoasis are on your snow cone list! Hokulia has these coconut shreds you can put on top of your snow cone and they are AMAZING.

    1. I have heard of them!! I will have to keep them in mind 🙂 I LOVE snow cones!!! Yum! We just went to Swig yesterday too!!

  11. Hi Amber!
    I’ve been following you for a while but have never commented on any of your posts. Just wanted to say that I love your family! You’ve even inspired me to start my own blog (www.lifewithpaz.com)-still workin on it! 🙂 I would love to meet you one day, any chance you’re coming to Atlanta soon?

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your life with us…God Bless You! <3
