A lot of people ask me about my skincare routine, which I’ve talked about a number of times. Despite sticking to my regimen, I still will get the occasional breakout. There is so much more to skincare than what you put on your face, so I have to go through a mental checklist. Clean makeup brushes – Stress level – Greasy Foods – …When was the last time I washed my pillowcase? I wish I could say I change my pillowcase every few days like is recommended (which is pretty much impossible!) but I don’t. Most people don’t realize just how gross your pillow can get even after one night – and how it can add to skin problems like acne. I first purchased my SleepClean pillowcases for our guest beds, but now I love them.  These cases are treated to inhibit bacteria growth so even if I don’t wash them as often as I should, they won’t have any bacteria build up. It’s such a small but easy thing to add, but such an important thing to remember as part of daily skincare. We all know how much I love skincare products 🙂 so these cases make sure I am getting the most out of all my purchases. I got them at the beginning of the year and they have been such a great addition to my routine.

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

  2. Are you wearing pjs in these pics?! They are so cute!!! Where are they from? 🙂

  5. Hello Amber,

    My girlfriend and I are just curious on how you have the time and money to travel around the world all the time!!! My gf, especially would like to know how you achieve such life style. If you could share this little piece of information, that’d be wonderful!

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Alan,

      I am fortunate enough to be able to work from wherever, which allows our family to travel and take our work with us 🙂 You can email me if you want more info!!

      Thanks!!

      1. I would love to learn how you do it! I know it’s personal but man it’s like how do you live in such an expensive apartment in NYC, be blessed to wear very expensive clothing/shoes/hats/handbags/makeup/skin care, travel to beautiful places constantly and afford 2 kids. I can’t help but feel so poor when I follow your blog – it feels unattainable. I love your blog, but it depresses me at the same time. Beautiful hair, beautiful skin, beautiful family, beautiful apartment, beautiful world traveler. I just wish I could work from home and make enough money to “have it all” too. Does David work from home too? I have worked so hard in life, but my family is very low income and I’m the wealthiest out if all of them and yet I can’t justify buying Mac makeup, or $300 hair extensions. But man I wish I could. Sorry for the novel. Just feeling down and wish I had your life.

    1. I didn’t know for the longest time either!! It’s always a good thing to be aware of though 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xoxo

    1. Thank you so much Kate!! And I used to be too!! I had no idea how dirty they can get ahhh :/ But it’s just something to be aware of 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xo

  6. I never manage to switch up my pillowcases often enough. I know it can have so much yucky build up on it. This reminds me of how I need to wash my brushes as well! Hopefully these two clean ups will make my skin better for the weekend! 🙂

    1. Ahh that is the worst!! I know exactly what you mean!! I hope this tip helps!! xo

  8. Awww, way too cute photos!!! I’m melting now. 😀 Having clean pillowcases IS so important and I change them every two days.
    I have seen a huge difference in my skin appearance after I have payed attention to each and every single small detail like too salty or greasy foods too often, no sleep/ bad quality sleep, touching my face “unconciously” too often, etc.
