Hi, I’m
 Amber

…. and I’m learning to parent while still
learning to adult. Join me as I try to figure out life,
motherhood and style, one blog post at a time.

When my husband was diagnosed with kidney failure, I quit my job and started a blog: because life’s too short not to follow your dreams, and I had apparently always dreamt about getting paid to write about my life on the internet. I even wrote a book about it. Want to know more?

Parenting
& Pregnancy

I gave birth to baby Max by elective c-section in December 2017, after one miscarriage, one ectopic pregnancy, and a lifetime’s worth of health anxiety and tokophobia. I wrote a pregnancy diary for (almost) every week of my pregnancy, and my parenting posts cover my  journey so far, as well as providing some honest advice for first-time parents….

Blogging
& Social Media

I’ve been making a living from blogging for over a decade: here’s everything I’ve learned, including how to start a blog, how to grow a blog, how to make money from blogging, and what it’s really like to make a living online.

I also write about life

My blog started out as a personal diary, and in many ways, it still is one. I started keeping diaries when I was 11 years old (I even published my very first journal right here on the blog…), and documenting my life has been a lifelong passion, which continues to this day. My lifestyle posts cover everything from travel and adventures to home decor, restaurant and beauty product reviews, plus some old-fashioned diary entries.
