I have been asked a lot lately about my make up so I thought I would share my favorites along with some photos we took while in West Village yesterday! A lot of these products are the same ones I have used for years now and some are new that I love!

FOUNDATION: Estee Lauder (applied with a wetted down Beauty Blender)

POWDER: Make Up Forever (I apply with this brush)

CONCEALER: Marc Jacobs (applied with Beauty Blender)

BLUSH: Nars in Orgasm (applied with this brush)

EYESHADOW: Bare Minerals palette in ‘Sexy Neutrals’ (applied with this brush)

EYELINER: Artliner by Lacome

I also really like to use my Glam Glow – I put it on 30 min before and let it sit for about 20 and then take it off with warm water and I use my First Aid Beauty spf/moisturizer then apply my foundation!

Yesterday was a pretty hilarious day. It started with me and Atticus just laying in bed and being lazy – he was being SO fun and giggly so I took full advantage and just played with him! Then he went down for a nap while I cleaned and got ready. Then when he woke up I thought I would heat up some of the BBQ chicken and rolls I had made the night before so it was ready when David got home. WELL, we have a small apartment (obviously, its NYC) and we have very limited storage space! We recently did a Costco run (yay!) and our cabinets are MAXED out so we had zero room for my Frosted Flakes and Honey Bunches of Oats and we put them in the oven. I totally forgot they were in there and turned the oven on to broil so I could toast the rolls and started to smell something burning shortly after. It hit me that I forgot about the cereal and I opened the oven to see a giant fire!!!!! I was flipping out and didn’t know what to do (some people say water makes it worse? and supposedly baking soda works?) I dont know but I started searching for a fire extinguisher that we don’t have and then panicked and tried calling David when luckily he walked in the door! I was freaking out (shaking) and he was all calm and said “first things first..” – and grabbed the Honey Bunches of Oats that somehow hadn’t caught on fire – and closed the oven and said it was fine. I was in shock like what??!?!? Our apartment is basically on fire and he snags the Honey Bunches of Oats and then kicks back. Hahaha. But it went out and all was good except the Frosted Flakes which is rather unfortunate. I cannot be trusted home alone!!! It was so sad too because Atticus could tell I was panicked and something was wrong and cried a little and had the sweetest concerned look on his face – he was soo worried! It was so sweet.

Have a good weekend everyone! Tomorrow is my birthday so we will be partyin!!

*Huge thanks to Sephora for sponsoring this post

  1. hi!

    Wich color code of foundation are you using?

    I have the same skin tone, but don’t know wish color fits the best

  2. I’ve looked through some of these comments and am I seriously the only one who wants to know your nail polish colour??

  3. Hi! I love your braids. What is the first braid? Thank you so much,

    Christina Arellano

  4. I am so in love with your shirt! Couldn’t find it at gap but heads up for anyone else who’s viewing this and wants it, there’s a pretty close replica at target for $12 (fitted, striped, boat neck, 3/4 sleeve) It isn’t pink and white stripes, sadly. 🙁

  5. I’d love to see tutorials on your makeup! And this hairstyle too! Maybe I should check your YouTube page. That hair might be on there.

  6. Would you mind sharing the colors you use for the foundation, concealer & powder? I’m trying to order online and get an idea of the colors.

  7. AH! That is so scary/sad/funny about the fire! Blake about burned our kitchen down when we first got our puppy and he was just a baby.. Blake had turned oil on, then the puppy started to have an accident so he rushed him outside only to come in to black smoke and the pan on fire! Thankfully all ended well in ours too! I would love to look into these products, I only have a few things that I absolutely buy/use the same thing every time and would like to lock in some more favs.

    1. I know!! Such a crazy mix of emotions haha! Kitchen fires can be so scary but luckily for us both, no one got hurt 😉 Let me know if you have any questions about the products, they are all amazing!! And aww thank you so much!! I had a wonderful birthday!!! xo

  8. Yikes, I’m glad you’re all okay. A pan’s once caught on fire at my home. I screamed and my father ran downstairs to put out the fire. Despite my learning how to put out fires.

    A pop bar just opened locally here in my part of Canada. I wish to try it someday.

    1. Thanks so much!! It was a bit scary but now I will never store things in the oven 😉 haha! And ooo yes, I recommend trying it someday!! Thanks for reading!!

      1. I’ll have to try it when in Anaheim!!! Amber when is your birthday? Mine is May 1st

  10. Loving those pink stripes! And just for the record, you’re way to thin and fit for anyone to wonder if you’re in the awkward pregnant stage…you look adorable and I hope I can someday miss that awkward stage completely, just as you have!

    1. Thanks so much!! You are so dang sweet!! That is such a lovely compliment 🙂 You totally made my day!! Love ya! xo

That is so sweet that Atticus was concerned, it is interesteing how aware babies are! Anyways, love your blog and all your hard work is noticed, you are such an inspiration. Happy Birthday and have a great weekend!!!

    1. Hahah I know it!! Like how are husbands so chill about things?? So funny!! And thank you so much!!! Wow! You are so sweet!! I appreciate the support so much!! Love ya!! XOXO

    1. HAHA I know!!! Such a stinker!! 🙂 He for sure has a sweet tooth, like ME!! Thanks for reading love!! xo

  17. When I read the title for this post, I really had no idea what to expect… but bring a box of cereal in the oven is something I did not have in mind! At least you had a good idea for extra storage space, and I’m sure you’ll never make that mistake again! hahah
    Can’t get over A’s cuteness and those popsicles look so dang good!
    Thanks for sharing your makeup look in this post – I always wondered what concealer you used because you look so awake and refreshed!

    Have a lovely weekend, Amber! xo

    Mocha and Moccasins

    1. Hahah totally random I know!!! It was definitely an eventful weekend 😉 We for sure won’t be storing anything in the oven anymore!! And aww thanks so much!! He is too fun!! I am glad you liked the makeup!! Have a great week, happy Monday!! xo

  18. Beautiful you & beautiful family! What colors do you wear? I’ve been waiting for a makeup post so thanks a million (:

    1. Thank you Lauren!! So nice of you!! And which colors for what?! I am glad you liked the post!! 🙂 xo

      1. Can brunettes have blonde moments? Haha sorry I didn’t specify. I’m curious about the colors you use for your face makeup–specifically the EL doublewear foundation. Sadly I don’t live too close to Nordstrom or Sephora, so I’m trying to get a feel for the color to get the best match possible online. Summer weddings are coming up & I need longlasting coverage!

        Also side note–you are such an awesome girl. I love how down to earth & interactive with your followers you are. I know those two things combined with lots of hard work on your side are why you are so successful. Cheers (:

        1. No worries!! I just wanted to make sure I was answering exactly what you wanted!! I wear the Estee Lauder double wear foundation in the color Fresco 🙂 I know what you mean!! It’s hard to not see the colors in person, so I hope this helps!!

          You are so sweet!! Thanks so much for that flattering compliment, it totally made my day!! Love ya!! xoxo

  19. HI Amber, Are they extensions or false lashes? Also do you still have tattoo liner? thanks Rachel

    1. Hi Rachel!! I wear Ardell Demi false lashes!! And no I don’t have tattoo liner. Thanks for reading!! xo

  20. Amber — I’ve been reading your blog for a while and have never commented, but I want to tell you how much I LOVE the tone of your posts. I love how familial and open you always are. As a fellow mama of a little boy, I look forward to reading your posts the most in the sea of blogs I read 🙂 Also, did you cut Atticus’ hair?! It looks adorable! Happy birthday tomorrow, and Mothers’ Day on Sunday!

    1. Oh my goodness, you are so sweet!! That means a lot to me!! I am so glad you can relate. And yes! I gave Atticus a haircut!! It was crazy how much different he looked! I love it though 🙂 Thank you so much for your cute comment Krystal!! I am so happy you follow along!! I hope your Mother’s Day was extra special!! xo

  21. Oh my gosh, this is one of the funniest stories I have ever heard! I was literally laughing out loud!

    1. Haha I am so glad you found it funny!! Luckily no one got hurt so we can giggle about it now!! Thanks for reading Sarah!!! xo

    1. Thank you so much beautiful!! You are so kind!! Thanks for reading!! xo

  22. I’m obsessed with your braids in these pics and how sweet little Atticus is! Have a happy birthday and a wonderful Mother’s Day too.

    1. Thank you so much love!! It was such a special weekend, I loved it!! xo

  23. Ahh I would’ve flipped out with the fire in the oven too! It didn’t set off any smoke alarms!?

    Also, what foundation do you use? Your skin always has a lovely velvet finish 🙂

    1. No it didn’t thank goodness!!! So glad because I bet Atticus would have been extra scared! And thank you so much!! I use Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation 🙂

      1. Wow I can’t believe you replied you are my absolute favorite blogger! And I look forward to seeing your posts everyday <3

        1. That is such a huge compliment, thank you SO much!! I am so happy you follow along!! Love ya!! xo

          1. Of course I really do and I love watching atticus on snapchat his giggles make me laugh! Love yah too!! XO

  24. hahaha k aren’t husbands the best things ever invented? I could totally see me doing something like that and then Jason (husband) just laughing and fixing things (per usual 😉 ) K I make that same BBQ chicken recipe so often, it’s so dang good and we always have so many left overs from it. s/o to pinterest for basically having the best, yummiest, easiest recipes ever! and happy early birthday!!! k random but are you related to peter fillerup? He was in my seminary class in high school and all I remember is him introducing himself and naming off every joke in the book that people have made about his last name and telling us not to make jokes about it haha
    xo, Candace | Lovely Little Rants

    1. Husbands really are the best!!! It was perfect timing that David walked in just as I needed him! And isn’t that recipe yummy?! I love easy things like that!! Pinterest for the win for sure!! And yes!! Peter is my dad’s cousin’s son!! Haha kinda confusing! 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xo

  25. Happy Birthday Amber! I hope this year is a wonderful one for you!

    1. Thanks so much Courtney!! That is so thoughtful and sweet of you!! xo

  26. Those popsicles look amazing! I bet you and A will be there getting a popsicle at least once a week all summer.
    I just wanted to add that I love that you reply to your comments. You are the only “big time blogger” I follow who responds to comments. All the others just respond to the negative ones…..makes no sense to me.
    On that note, I have been dying to ask if you have any advice for how to get your blog out there. Yours has grown so well over the past 5 years and I was curious if you have any tips or tricks for beginner bloggers like me? (Hope that’s not inappropriate to ask)
    Dresses & Denim

    1. They were so tasty!! We will for sure be going back 🙂 And aww thank you so much!! So nice of you to even take notice, I appreciate the positive feedback!! You’re the best!! And yes!! If you email me, I will send you some tips for getting started 🙂 Looking forward to hearing from you love!! xoxo

  27. Oh my goodness! You look so happy in these pics, it’s so nice to see, I love unfiltered joy!! I think Atticus has a sweet tooth with his crying til he gets his ice-cream haha.
    I bet you were so stressed with the fire, but I def think that is a story that you can look back on and just laugh about. David’s reaction was priceless! What a nice thing to be married to someone that doesn’t get too stressed!
    About your previous reply to my comment, yes, please let me know when you road trip to Canada, I have lots of recommendations and what not!
    ANNNNDD!! Happy flippin birthday for tomorrow! I wish you the biggest blessings for this next year. It’s been awesome seeing your life and success through this blog, and I’m sure you’ll have lots more adventures this next year! 🙂 Lots of love girl! xxxx B.

    1. Thank you so much Beth!!! So sweet of you 🙂 And oh yes!! I think A has a bigger sweet tooth than me haha! The burning of the Frosted Flakes will for sure be a story we look back on and laugh!! Too funny! And thank you love!! I had such an awesome birthday/Mother’s Day weekend, it was the best!! I appreciate all the love and support from you!!! Love ya!!! xo

    1. Ahh thank you!! I am glad you like it!! I am hoping to do a tutorial for it soon, so stay tuned 😉 xo

  28. Your little family is so adorable, Amber! I can’t wait until your next little enters the picture (literally!). And how amazing is your hair?! I love the two different braids together. You are a master of hair, for sure. I wish I had enough patience to sit in front of the mirror and figure braiding out, but I just end up getting too frustrated. Thanks for sharing! xx

    1. Thanks so much!! You are too kind!!! We are SO excited for baby #2!! 🙂 And aww you are the best!! It takes A LOT of practice, don’t worry!! I even get frustrated my first time around on new braids! Thanks for reading!!! xo

  29. Amazing post! Amber, you have a perfect family and David is a perfect man for you. And this is so amazing! And I absolutely love how you show your life and share real feelings. I know that it is very personal and you may not want to answer these questions, but I think that many ladies who read your blog would like to read that. The thing is that I am a Christian just like you and David, and I am dating a boy now who is a Christian himself. But there are some things which are kinda difficult. Could you please write some tips for young people in love how to date and to treat each other, what is okay and what is not etc. Your family is perfect which makes me think that you know the answers. And I also don’t know what to do…seems like my boyfriend wants to make next step and there is kind of sexual tension between us, so I don’t really know if it is okay to have sex if we are not married and some other things.. Well, it would be soooo great if you anwered (I hope you will because I need your help!). But if you don’t, I will understand it indeed. With love, Linda

    1. Hi Linda! I know your question was for Amber, but I couldn’t help just mentioning this: Although the section is under “Teenagers,” the bible-based information listed under “Sex, Morals, and Love” is really beneficial to anyone single or currently in a relationship, and will show you where to find the principles in your own bible. Hope you’re able to find some encouragement!

  30. Have the best day ever omg!!! and this is kinda a weird question but did you dye or do something different with your eyebrows?? They look so good!!

  31. Oh no! I am so sorry that happened, but so glad that everything worked out! I can totally see myself doing something like that ha, so you’re not alone. Atticus is seriously the cutest in these pictures, and it is the sweetest. It reminds me of some of the photos that I take with my little girl! 🙂

    Simply Rachel Nicole

    1. Thanks so much!! It was pretty scary but I am glad I can laugh about it now haha 🙂 And aww thank you!! He is so fun, we sure adore him!! I bet your little girl is adorable!! xo

  32. I love the shots of just your face smiling, they’re so simple and pretty.

    1. Me too!! Thanks so much!! And aww thank you!! I had a wonderful birthday, thanks for thinking of me!! XOXO

    1. Hahah it was sure a crazy day!! Glad you think it’s funny too 😉 Ooo yes Glam Glow for the win!!! And I had a great birthday, thanks so much beautiful!! xo

  33. I love the hairstyle and that lip color!! Happy birthday tomorrow! My birthday is today 😀

    1. Thanks so much Ann!! It was a great birthday weekend! and YAY!! I hope your birthday was extra special too!!! xoxo

  34. I love that face Atticus made after finally getting the Popsicle! He’s adorable!
    Also, oven fires go out on their own because fires need oxygen to burn, and leaving the door closed “starves” the fire. It is very scary though! So glad everything worked out okay!

    1. Haha it was so funny!! Atticus totally has a sweet tooth!! And that is good to know!! At the moment I don’t know why I didn’t think of that haha! Thanks for your comment Kayla!! xo

  35. Such a cute and simple outfit, and the hair is gorg! What do you use for your brows? Oh no, sorry about the scary situation. One time I left a plastic tupperware thing in the broiler tray of my oven because I thought it was a storage drawer. Well… I was in for a bad experience when I used the oven haha.

  36. Hahahaha I swear that is why we marry men, they are so chill while we freak out! I’m glad everything is fine and nothing else caught on fire haha Loving your braids by the way, need to try this hairstyle soon! xx


    1. Hahah so true!! I don’t know what I would have done if David didn’t walk in!! And thanks so much!! I am glad you like the hairstyle!! I appreciate it!! xoxo

  37. Literally you are not the only one who has forgotten there is something already in the oven. This has happened to me so many times! LOL! Glad your all ok though! Nice pix yall look like you had fun that day!

    1. I am so glad to hear that haha! It’s so funny to hear other’s oven stories as well!! And thanks so much!! You are so sweet!! xo

  38. I would have been the same! Freaking out and not knowing what to do ! Happy birthday to you 🙂 Have an amazing day! It sounded like you had a great day in this post! I love the makeup and the sunglasses are on point!!


    1. Right?! It’s like in the moment, I froze haha!! SO glad David came to the rescue!! And thanks so much!! I had a wonderful birthday!!! xoxo

    1. Thanks so much!! I am glad we can laugh about it now haha 🙂 And aww thank you!! I love a good stripped shirt!! xo

  39. Camila Coelho did a post about braids on her blog with pictures of you but didn’t add a reference to you… well i’m 99% it’s you. You should check that out!

  40. OMG I would’ve been FREAKING out! Happy you’re okay…I’m sure it wasn’t funny at the time but now telling the story it is ha-ha. Thanks for beauty tips! I hope you have a great weekend and birthday!!!!

    Stay Styled,

    Instagram: stay_styled

    1. Haha exactly!! It is funny now so that is all that matters 😉 I had a great birthday, thanks so much love!!! xo

    1. Thanks so much!! I appreciate it!! We will definitely not be storing anything in our oven for now on haha!! Lesson learned!! And aww thank you!! We are so excited for baby #2 🙂 xoxo

  41. Aaaah! I would have FREAKED out too! I once lit a napkin on fire by grabbing a hot poptart from the toaster (when I was 14 or 15) and I immediately dropped it on the kitchen floor and started screaming. I thought I was going to catch the entire house on fire. My 9 year old brother walked into the room (looked at me like I was insane) and stomped out the fire. I can’t say I would react any differently if it happened again now.

    Your makeup looks flawless as always (I love Sephora)!

    1. Hahah omg that story is too funny!! Thanks so much for sharing so we can laugh together!! I have totally lit a napkin on fire before too, but we will save that story for another day 😉 So funny!! I probably freakout out a little too much about the cereal box.. but I couldn’t help it in the moment haha 🙂 Thanks for being so sweet!! xo

  42. Love this post! You look amazing and your skin is glowing!!!! So beautiful. And when I saw the title of this post I was like “Hmm…” and now it totally makes sense. I’m so happy you and your family is safe, I can’t imagine what I would do in that situation – TOO SCARY! I hope you have an amazing birthday!!

    Kalyn Goff

    1. Thank you so much Kalyn!! You totally made my day!! 🙂 And yes!! Thank goodness no one got hurt haha and that we can laugh about it now!! I had such a wonderful birthday, thank you so much!!! You are a doll!! xo

    1. I am just happy I can laugh about it now haha 😉 Thanks for reading Laura!! xo

    1. No way?! We loved it!! Such a great place 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xo

  43. Omg bahaha. That is horrible. We totally used to keep stuff in our oven when I was growing up and would forget about it all the time when we turned on the oven! At least it makes for a good laugh now! And HAPPPPPPYYYYYYY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYY. I pray you have the bestest day and feel special and celebrated. xoxoxo

    1. Hahah I agree!! I am so glad I can laugh at it now, even though in the moment it wasn’t so funny 😉 And thank you Christine!!! I had a great birthday weekend!!! Thanks for the love!! xoxo

  44. Can totally emphasize with you regarding almost burning down your home. My asian parents left mango boxes in the oven to ripen faster and I totally forgot. I preheated the oven to heat up some pizza and lets say the boxes lit on fire. There was little bit of smoke, but a pungent burning smell. Lucky, my family was home and my courageous mother took the boxes out and handled it. Now my family always makes fun of me for being soo forgetful and clumsy lol and reference this story a 1,000x. I wasn’t even pregnant and had a child to worry about. Long story, but mistakes happen to the best of us. Love Atticus he is so adorable, it just makes me miss my nieces and nephews and they just love stealing everything I’m eating, especially my niece who does not like when she doesn’t get her food on time. lol.

    1. Haha oh my goodness that is a great story!! Thanks for sharing with me so I don’t feel as silly 🙂 It’s funny to look back on it now which is the good thing!! Hopefully David doesn’t tease me about this in the future haha! You are so sweet, thanks again for making me feel at ease!! XOXO

  45. Amber,
    Thank god for David. David to the rescue! That is something I would totally do. Poor little atticus….he knew you were upset, sweet baby. Obsessed with your makeup too! I was hoping you would do a post on makeup. Could you possibly do a YouTube video oh “how to” because it is perfection. Love this outfit and hair! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! have fun. xoxo

    1. Seriously!! It was perfect timing, we were lucky!! I probably freaked out a little more than I needed to haha 🙂 And thank you Tiffany!! I am glad you liked the makeup! I will keep a makeup tutorial in mind as well! Thanks for the suggestion!! xoxo

      Oh and I had a great birthday, thank you for thinking of me!!

  46. OMG! I was in shocked, literally! while I was reading your post! thank God nothing bad happened!
    hope you have a wonderful birthday and incredible day!
    Hughs from Mexico 🙂

    ps. Im pregnant too! due in November! so Im learning how to take awesome pics like you, just to share the new! (we haven’t make it public :S )

    1. Totally!! We are lucky for sure!! And thanks so much!! I had a great birthday!! 🙂 And yay!! Congrats to you!! I hope your pregnancy goes smoothly!! xo

  47. So funny! I feel like this will be me soon in my tiny NYC apartment. My biggest issue so far has been storing pots over the stove and them falling behind it… still haven’t solved that one yet lol

    1. Ahh good luck!! I wish I had some tips but it is a learning process still haha! Storage is VERY limited in the city, we do the best we can right?? Thanks for reading love!! xo

  48. Those pops look delicious! Wish I didn’t live so far in Florida because now I want one! 😛
    I love, love, love the top so I caved and just bought it, only had the large left though so I will just shrink it if need be!
    Says it runs small! What size did you end up with?

    p.s. Adorable bump by the way!

    1. p.s.s.

      I would have done the SAME thing with the boxes in the oven with my preggo brain! HAHA!

    1. Thank you so much!! That is so sweet of you to say!! Have a wonderful day! xo

  49. Adorable post and story! Your make-up looks exceptionally great in this post. Thanks for the tips!

    1. I am glad you like the hairstyle!! I will keep this in mind for future tutorials 🙂 xo

    1. Seriously!! I was probably freaking out a little too much haha 😉 And thanks so much!! I had such a great weekend!! xoxo

    1. Thank you Ashlee!! 🙂 And yes!! You need to try it! I am a huge lover of popsicles in the summer too!! xo

    1. Haha!! I know! Sad day for the Frosted Flakes 🙁 It sure was an eventful day!! And thank you!! I had a wonderful birthday!! xo

      1. Apparently I can’t be left alone either because after reading your post I left my cell on the back of my truck and drove away! Found in smashed in an intersection. I guess your bad luck rubbed off onto me! Lol glad you had a good birthday! And happy mother’s day yesterday!!!


  50. Hahahaha! I am laughing so hard right now! First of all, props on your cereal choices. Definitely two of my favorites! Honey Bunches of Oats were saved though, so at least you could have a yummy snack after the panic. Secondly, this sounds exactly like something that would happen at my house so I totally feel you, girl! My husband comes home and it is like all hell has broken loose. But how do they manage to stay so calm?! I will never know.

    Gosh – just love your preggo pics. I hate that phase because it’s like, “If I wear a tight shirt people will think that I’ve just eaten too much, and it all goes right to my uterus!” or you go with the flowy-er top and then it can get boring. But anyways, so beautiful 🙂

    Hope you have an amazing, happy & sun-filled weekend!


    Sarah | QueSarahSera

    1. Hahah seriously!! Glad you found the humor in it 🙂 And yes, how do husbands stay so calm?! What the heck!! haha! And thank you so much!! I am definitely showing more this second time around, and I love it!! You are so sweet!! Thank you for the lovely compliments!!

  52. Those pops look so darn good, no wonder Atticus was crying for some! I am obsessed with the hair, it looks great! I’m sorry you had a scare like that. I would definitely be freaking out as well. But we all do stuff like that at some point and forget, so don’t be hard yourself. I hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend!!!
