Today I’m teaming up with Celebrity Cruises to share my top 10 travel moments. As you guys may have noticed, we like to travel a lot. Even since before David and I got married, he and I loved to travel. We both spent a lot of time overseas before we met, and once we got married we agreed not to slow down! You know what they say, a family that travels together, stays together… or something. But here they are!

1. Honeymoon (Bahamas Cruise)Print

Our honeymoon has to be my most cherished travel moment! First off, it was the first time we actually got to travel together, and there’s no better way to travel than with your best friend. And second, I LOVE cruises. There is something so great about knowing that when you are on a cruise, the three things that need to be planned for every vacation (travel, food, activity) are all taken care of for you! There’s no better way to relax! Every year or so, my whole extended family goes on a trip together and this year we are leaning towards a cruise! With so many different age groups, it just makes sense. We have a couple locations in mind, but right now we are leaning towards Alaska!

I created this board on Pinterest to show you some of the things I’m looking forward to doing/seeing/wearing. Best part is, right now you can win a similar destination cruise by participating in the Destination Celebrity Cruise Pinterest sweepstakes!  You can enter by re-pinning one of my pins on my board and creating a similar board titled “Destination Celebrity Cruises.” Doing this enters you into the sweepstakes! Good luck and happy sailing!

  1. Hey Amber! My husband and I were thinking about Morocco in October and I remembered this post! I really don’t know anyone else who has gone before…any city/hotel recommendations? We travel a ton but never have been to Africa so I don’t know where to start! Help haha!

  2. you are seriously living the life! i love looking at your blog & seeing all the beautiful photos of your family, your tutorials, and looking for help when it comes to fashion and hair (you’re a life saver). Thank you so much for sharing all your fun excursions with us. Being in college, obviously there’s not a lot of time for traveling so I usually go to your blog for some inspiration 🙂 it helps me remember that there’s so much in this world to explore and soak in. also, you & your husband = #relationshipgoals. ahahah.

  3. Hi Amber! I am planning a euro trip in the summer as my college graduation present, along with a few friends. Where do you recommend I MUST see in the South of France and the Amalfi Coast? My sorority sisters and I are ready to explore.

  4. Hey Amber, I just wanted to say your blog is my favorite! I have been a reader for quite a few years now, and I look forward to reading about your travels and beauty tips every day! Your life is very inspiring to me because my life goal is to travel the world! I recently got married and I know this is kind of a personal question but I was wondering what the most romantic & adventurous place you went to was? It’s kind of a hard combination to come by because we want to relax but we also want to do some fun activities (my husband has MAJOR ADD :)) and I want this to be a vacation we both remember! We are both very overwhelmed by the whole honeymoon planning because we have only been to a few places mostly in the states and once out of the country (Puerto Rico, St. John, Turks & Caicos), and we want to go somewhere that has good food & amazing snorkeling, but then I am torn because my Mom told me Greece was heaven on Earth. Do you have any tips on planning a honeymoon to a place where we can be on a beach, have some adventure and check out local town life but also be able to relax and grub down on some delicious local fare! Any and all tips would help me out! You are amazing and looking gorgeous as ever with your 2nd pregnancy. Cheers to good health, safe travels, and enjoying small pleasures with people we love xoxo

  6. Hey Amber!! I love your blog!! Where did you get the red swimsuit in the first picture??? I love it and I’ve been looking for a simple one piece!! Thanks!!

  7. These trips look absolutely amazing! I’m going to be an Au Pair in Italy this summer and I am really hoping to go to Cinque Terre, do you have any recommendations on things to do and places to stay for an 18 year old girl traveling by herself? You’re gorgeous by the way. 🙂

  8. My mom and I went on the Alaska cruise out of Seattle and it was so much fun! So beautiful and a perfect way to see Alaska. Bring warm clothes though… Even in July…

    1. Aww thank you!! Are you talking about the bikini?! It is from Victoria Secret 🙂 I am not sure if they have it still or not, it is from awhile back!! xo

    1. Thank you so much!! Lots of amazing memories 🙂 Thanks for reading!! xo

  9. Awwww this is SO cute! I love that your honeymoon was your favorite 🙂 I love traveling with my boyfriend, who is my best friend! There is seriously nothing better!

    1. Thank you so much!! The honeymoon pictures are my favorite ones too 🙂 They have a special place in my heart!! It really is the best traveling with your best friend/husband/boyfriend whoever!! Thanks for reading!! xo

  10. You guys are so stinkin’ adorable! I just got married in August, and my hubby and I are heading to Nicaragua in June for our honeymoon. I hope that we have such sweet photos.

    17th & Style

    1. You’re so sweet, thank you!! And NO WAY?! How stinking cool!! Have a blast!! I am sure you will have amazing pictures for sure!! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Kira!! Just checked out your Pinterest board and it’s amazing!!! Gorgeous places ahhh 🙂 Love it!

      1. Wow! Thank you so much this is an amazing compliment, especially from you!

    1. YAY!! Good luck!! Ahh St. Croix is a must!! Hope you can go sometime 🙂 And you’re so sweet, thanks love!! xo

  11. Aww, I love the honeymoon photo of you guys! I seriously think it’s so inspiring how much you travel, with baby and without baby. Really wish more young couple had this mindset, you two are doing something great 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! I love that picture too!! And wow thank you Julia!! I appreciate the positivity and kind words!! Love ya girl!! xo

  12. Wonderful! I love Pinterest and I have always wanted to go on a cruise! I was wondering what David did before the blog and traveling so much? I hope this isn’t too intrusive or anything 🙂 He seems like such a wonderful husband and supporter. Can’t wait to see pictures form your cruise later this year!

    1. Thank you so much!! I hope you can enjoy a cruise soon 🙂 And that’s a great question!! His dad was a geologist so he would go on trips with him, and he just loves traveling in general! He also served his mission in Croatia, so that’s one reason we wanted to go back so bad!! 🙂 xo

  13. Stunning!! My husband and I love traveling too. Do you have any tips on how to travel cheaply? Also, what are the odds that you would sell me that black and white color block one piece? Because I am dying over the cuteness!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much Ally!! I love hearing that!! So fun to travel with your husband!! Where is your favorite spot? And as far as traveling cheaply.. we start by getting affordable airfare using apps like Skyscanner where you can check things like which month is cheapest to fly, as well as set alerts for the cheapest prices. While we are traveling we make sure to stick to our budgets on hotels, food, activities, etc. Maybe I will do a post with tips on traveling on a budget or something!! And I don’t think I have that swimsuit anymore ;( But I will check and let you know if I find it!! Thanks for reading love!!

      1. Traveling with your best bud is seriously the best! I can’t wait to travel with babies (Lord willing) one day! My favorite place I have been is definitely Ireland! I have family that lives there and was able to meet them and learn tons of family history. It was so great! The west coast of Ireland is just so gorgeous. However, I am a sucker for Paris and constantly want to go there. I am a beach girl at heart so I am thinking I would love to travel the coast of France! Anyways, a post on how to travel for a low cost would be wonderful!! My husband is a seminary student so we need all the tips we can get! Thanks for checking for the suit- you are seriously so sweet! I love how connected you are to your readers!

  14. I overlapped with you for a few days or week in Fiji and it is definitely on my top 10 places! It’s fun to see how popular your blog has become! Congrats and your little boy is so adorable!!

    1. Oh my gosh yes!! Amazing memories!! So good to hear from you 🙂 And thank you so much for the support!! I appreciate it!! Love ya! xo

    1. Thank you Jessica!! That means a lot to me!! I know what you mean! Looking back at old photos makes me crave a trip every time!! Good thing summer is coming up 🙂 xo

  15. AMBER!! I was on vacation with my best friend and had no connection for 12 days, honestly missed reading your blog so much!! <3

    1. Oh my gosh you’re so cute!! I love hearing that!! Where did you go?!?! I hope you had a wonderful time love!! xo

      1. awww!! We went to Cape San Blas, honestly you feel like you are in a different country but it’s literally in Northern Florida!! You need to go! If you are looking for a chill vacation where you don’t need to wear makeup or do your hair (which was such a nice break for me 🙂 and just relax with family and friends its perfect!!

        1. Okay yess!! I have seen pictures from there!!! I heard it’s amazing!! Definitely need to add that to my must-see list!! Sounds like a dream! Glad you had fun 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion! xo

  16. FUN! I was/am always 50/50 on cruises. I love that everything is planned out and included (for the most part) and that you get to see so many places in one trip. But I always feel like the cruise overtakes the destination a bit. There is something I love about being in one place and being able to watch the sunset on the beach and go to a late dinner and then get up in the same destination and really get to know that place where you are at. Right now we are actually planning on a cruise soon with a big group of friends! It is definitely the way to go with a group because there is always something to do for everyone and you can all kind of do your own thing without feeling bad about it! Can’t wait to see where you choose to go!

    1. Yeah for sure! I know what you mean!! If you don’t feel like “planning” at all, cruises are where it’s at haha 🙂 But I agree, I wish with cruises you could somehow stay at the destinations longer!!! It’s nice to mix it up and do a cruise here and there between other vacations!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts Angela!! Have fun on your next cruise!! Where are you guys going?! xo

    1. Thank you so much!!! You are too nice!! I am hope you and hubby can go somewhere soon!! And yes, it is so much fun to travel now with Atticus and share the experiences with him!! Have a wonderful day!! xo

  24. So many amazing vacations! My family is going to Alaska this summer. We opted to stay at a wilderness resort, which does a lot of the planning for us. All we have to do is get there and they take care of planning the day to day activities and it’s all included (plus 4 course Alaskan inspired meals–YUM!). Thought you might want to look into it. A cruise sounds fun to though!

    1. Yes!! It was tough for sure, but for different reasons, each of these locations stuck out to me 🙂 Lots of fun memories to be had as well!! Thanks so much for reading Sofia!! Have a fabulous day!! xo

  26. my fiancé and i just booked our honeymoon cruise and we are so excited! we have never been on a cruise before so it will be new for both of us! any advice? have you heard anything about the carnival cruises out of mexico? this post makes me want to travel even more!!

    xo, k

    1. YAY!!! So excited for you guys!! And congrats on your engagement, when is your wedding?! I went on a cruise to Mexico with my family when I was younger and loved it!! The only other cruise I have been on was my honeymoon cruise to the Bahamas. The only advice I can think of is don’t forget toiletries because they can be pretty expensive on the boat. Also, remember to bring motion sickness patches, you never know if you will get sick, but the patches prevent/help with that. Don’t bring too much stuff, the rooms can be small depending on what you get, and there’s no phone service unless you buy wifi, so just sit back and relax 🙂 Oh and research where the boat will dock and what activities you want to do so you don’t have to do much planning while cruising. Hope this helps!! xo

  27. What does hubby do to allow such a flexible schedule? nice to see the world with your loved ones!

    1. My husband and I work together on my blog 🙂 So luckily we are on the same schedule and work/travel as a team!! Thanks for reading Melissa!! xo

  28. What wonderful photos- you surely come around Amber. Love that picture in Fiji- of course I love the others as well but on that picture you look so radiant and glowy. Your photos always make me happy. Kisses to you wonderful! xoxo, Sissi

    1. Thank you so much!! You are a doll!! Thanks for making my day!! Fiji has a special place in my heart for sure 🙂 The people were so amazing!! Thanks for reading and leaving such a sweet comment 🙂 Love ya!! xo

  29. OMG so many beautiful places, and you are gorgeous and your family beautiful, you just radiate from happiness in all the pics. Me and my husband also love to travel, but having highly demanding office jobs doesn’t allow us as much to indulge in this hobby. We promised that we will at least try to travel even for a long weekend just to visit new places!

    1. AWW thank you!!! You just made my day 🙂 Demanding jobs for sure make it difficult to travel!! But that is so awesome you do what you can and still make it work! Go you!! Thanks for reading love!! xo

  30. I wish we had the flexibility to travel as much as you guys do, our full time jobs with limited time off make it a little more difficult, but we are going to the Philippines in a couple weeks and I am STOKED! I hope to take at least one big trip a year 🙂 I am also highlighting my Europe travels from a little while ago on my blog every friday!

    http://www.lovealwaysjess.com

    1. I know what you mean, we can luckily can work from wherever, but traveling can be restricted by jobs for sure 🙁 But OMG Philippines!!! WOW! So excited for you Jessica!! Have a blast! A trip a year is an awesome goal to have! I can’t wait to see your pictures from your trip on your blog yay!!! 🙂 xo

    1. You are so nice, thank you!! Isn’t traveling such an fun adventure with your loved one?! So fun to create memories and new experiences!! I am so happy to hear you love traveling as well 🙂 xo

  31. I’m glad you guys continue to travel, even with little A! I love That you share your adventures with the rest of us! All the pictures look beautiful and looks like you are some amazing memories!! Have a wonderful weekend Amber!

      1. We only recently got married so we haven’t gone on that many trips together — yet (one of the many perks of being married in my opinion haha!) But I loooved going to Kenya several years ago. South Africa, where I was born, was definitely one of our favs tho!

        1. Oh wow!! Kenya would be so cool!! Definitely want to go there someday!! 🙂
