David and I are pretty obsessed with dumplings and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the sesame pancakes so we headed to China Town and got our fix. Last time we were there we walked over to the lower east side and passed an ice cream sandwich shop that I wanted to stop at sooo bad but we were in a hurry so this time I told David we should go there because it could be cute for a “picture” .. in other words I just want an ice cream sandwich haha. He saw right through that little excuse.

I wore these Melissa Spice flats (you may remember them in white from this post) but I also got them in black because I love how comfy they are and love the gold detail on them. They are from their new Melissa Starwalker Collection and I love them!

  21. Love Chinatown and then heading over to La Ferreria in Little Italy for dessert. It doesn’t get any better. Have you taken the food tour in NYC? Everytime I go to NYC it’s usually winter and it’s too cold to do it. I would love to do it in the summer, fall or spring time.

  27. Great outfit – but even better are those glasses! Love that glasses have become a fashion accessory and not just a necessary accessory. They look great on you!

    1. Thank you babe!! You are so sweet!! I have been loving wearing glasses lately so I appreciate that! xo

  28. Not to be rude or harsh but maybe you should try eating healthier and encourage that on your blog. I’m 33 weeks pregnant and gained 15 pounds which is in the perfect health range. You’re still a gorgeous girl but there is no need to eat in excess. A lot of people fall in the “eating for two” syndrome and that’s a shame. You literally only need an extra 300 calories a day, not actually eating for two especially seeing as your baby is only like 3 pounds at most at your point. I’m just trying to help cause this doesn’t seem healthy and there really isn’t a need to midnight cookies.

    Best of luck!!

    1. “not too be hard or rude” well, you ARE being harsh and rude. Why don’t you focus on your own body and upcoming baby and stop worrying about what this fully capable, smart, loving, mother is doing to treat herself on an afternoon in NYC or any other time. You’re the kind of internet troll that make people think it’s OK to express nasty/unnecessary opinions from the safety of behind their computer screen.

    2. Are you insinuating that it looks like I have gained more weight than what is healthy??

      1. Amber, you look beautiful! I’m sure her comments are just a “looking out for you” thought, so try not to take it any other way (I know it can be hard sometimes). You know what your body is telling you, and you’ve been through a pregnancy before. Unless your doctor is telling you to change something, don’t. It’s easier for people to critique from a computer when they don’t really know your entire situation. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog, and your cute little family! My daughters and I really enjoy your beautiful braids. Keep up what you’re doing!!! 🙂

        1. I feel like you’re the only person who actually understood my post, which is sad. My girlfriends look out for me, especially since diabetes during pregnancy is actually concerning (not saying that she has it or looks it, just bringing up one reason why people will look out for others). Anyways thanks cause I feel like you understood my point and I really wasn’t trying to be an internet troll or disrespectful. We are all adults here.

          1. I’m sure you’re happy to find an alli, but if you had watched her vlogs and every entry, you’d know how healthy she eats AND exercises regularly! It did come across trollish…so why don’t you just apologize and be better informed before entering such a comment. I could tell by Amber’s response that it boggled her mind! So be better informed before making such a comment.

          2. I understand that you are “looking out for me” but I do want to remind you that in my last two blog posts I have mentioned what work outs I was doing (i.e. my previous post I said I was excited for my Soul Cycle class) and I also JUST posted a video on my three favorite healthy snacks. This was clearly one of my meals in my entire day. We start every morning with a green juice, which you would have seen in our first vlog. We also just had chicken and rice for dinner. I dont post public journal entries on every meal I eat but I do take photos of the “cute” and aesthetically pleasing food items we eat which just so happen to be unhealthy sometimes. I say if a pregnant girl wants a cookie, get a cookie!!!! I always make sure I walk a little extra, throw my son in the air a little more, run around the park with him, and work out harder at the gym the days I do that but heavens, let a girl making a baby eat a sweet or two, we deserve it!

      2. Amber, you look amazing. This was a very ignorant assumption and comment. You post so often about the healthy exercise and dietary steps you take. You do more exercise then most preggo women I know! You are and look VERY healthy. This comment was uncalled for, so don’t feel bad. Take what Emily whoever said with a grain of salt. Or ignore it. As always, much love! -Bekah

        1. I totally agree with this! You and your family are extremely healthy and you should indulge sometimes. Don’t listen to crazy girls.

      3. Amber! You silly goose, this is by no means a body shaming post, people took it way farther than necessary. You have a lot of people looking up to you, just making a suggestion. I told you you still look gorgeous, can’t us girls just look out for on another without thinking it’s some crazy insult or internet trolling. Jeez. Anyways, no offense was intended to be taken, we are all grown women. Enjoy your cookies, just trying to help a girl out! My girlfriends had such a hard time losing the weight after having their babies, especially their second, so they all have been seriously motivating me to eat better and healthier cause no one likes feeling bad about the way they look and I wish all girls had that. That’s where my post was coming from. Not trying to yuck up your Monday girl and certainly not trying to start something petty.

    3. Ha I needed a laugh today! This comment proved to be the joke I needed. Well done Emily.

    4. You are super rude! Maybe you should mind your own business and everyone can eat how they want. I am so tired of hearing women shame one another (we already have enough obstacles and judgements). Amber, you are adorable, look great, and look like an incredible mom. Forget the haters!

    5. Actually, Emily, unless you were overweight or obese at the start of your pregnancy, 15 lbs is below the recommended weight gain for 33 weeks. But go ahead with your body shaming because, you know, the internets.

      1. Sorry Regina George, I didn’t realize you were a doctor lol the healthy recommended weight is 20-25 and seeing as I’m at 15 and have 7 weeks to go AND that you gain a pound a week your last month is why you kinda sound ignorant… (Hopefully you can do the math). But anyways this totally wasn’t even meant to be rude! I’d want my girlfriends to tell me to chill on the cookies, in fact they have. Idk how that’s rude or why people are so sensitive it’s literally just a post..

        1. I don’t know where you live, but I was basing my comment off the guidelines of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynelogists, whose committee opinion can be found here:
          While, obviously, things vary around the world, these recommendations are standard in the U.S., where Amber lives and I practice as a nurse.

          While your point on not “eating for two” is well taken, many people perceived your comment to be rude because you seem to be judging Amber for her food consumption and implying her weight gain is unhealthy, when, in fact we know nothing about what was actually consumed, Amber’s exercise routine, what else she is eating/drinking, what she weighs, etc. Her post was merely an advertisement for shoes. As a pregnant woman, you should know how hurtful it is to hear people judging your body, regardless of the forum.

          Anyway, best of luck with the remainder of your pregnancy.

          1. I, too, live in the U.S. and was basing my comment strictly on my doctors advice in the course of my pregnancy. I have yet to speak to someone who can deny the healthy weight gain, I have spoke to people who have gained from 50-80 pounds as well (call it whatever you want but that’s not healthy). There are so many misconceptions which my doctor has clarified for me so you being a nurse doesn’t exactly trump that. Yeah There are many factors when it comes to being healthy, no one is even debating that… I’m just basing it on the soda, and cookies that are clearly posted as well as her previous posts about eating cookies at midnight and her love of Mc Donald’s and hotdogs. (Again not insulting just stating clear observation, strictly observation). We can disagree though cause I’m sure your comment wasn’t coming from a bad place. Everyone just got so defensive when I just stated the obvious. She can be as big as a house and it wouldn’t matter to me cause we are all beautiful women but she has a large fan base and a lot of people look up to her so I was suggesting maybe be healthy since this is America and the obesity rate is pretty crazy. And not even just that but cause gestational diabetes is no joke…. ANYWAYS this was way more dramatic then it needed to be lol hope you have a great rest of the week (drama free!). Officially done responding to these comments cause I feel like everyone else just wants to fit in.
