One Thousand

This is my 1,000th post here at Forever Amber.

I thought I would mark the occasion by writing my best post ever: one that would make you laugh, cry, and, I don’t know, maybe cheer?

Instead, here are some photos of me prancing around in high heels. No, thank YOU.

(No, really, thank you for reading this. Your comments are the only reason I’ve continued with this blog through 1,000 posts about my dog, my clothes and the random acts of stupidity I commit on a daily basis. If you’re still reading, or if you’ve just started reading, then thank you, and I hope you’ll stick around for the next 1,000 posts. Or, you know, the next few at least.)

On the plus side, at least the 1,000th post wasn’t that one about me being locked in the bathroom. Close call.

    Congratulations – I love your blog :)

  • Long live this blog!

    You make me laugh out loud with every post – and despite the internet’s frequent use of ‘lol’ I genuinely never ‘lol’, unless I am here :D

    Love your blog, please keep it up :)

    When I saw the title of this post on facebook I thought: Jeez, if Amber has 1000 dresses then I’m not so bad. Also – far far behind. Alas, it was the one thousandht (?) post. Congrats!

    I’ve recently begun reading your blog and have been backtracking just so I can read all your other posts. They make me laugh and smile on a regular basis. Thank you – I hope you see thousands of more posts from you!

    Congratulations Amber! Going self-employed is a huge risk, and you’ve showed it can pay off!

    Also – is that the same gingham as the ASOS circle skirt I believe we both own in red?

    • Reply July 31, 2012


      It is! It was part of a little collection they did using this fabric/print – I managed to restrict myself to just the two pieces ;)

    happy 1000th post jubilee!

    Love seeing your outfit posts and reading your fun posts about your mishaps, your posts about the gym and “the others” still rank as some of my most favourite and fun reads ever!

    Thank you for sharing bits of your life with us!

  • Reply July 31, 2012


    Congratulations! I’m sure I’ll stick around for some time. I love how honest and funny your posts are and that you’re sharing even the not-so-bright-and-shiny moments, which is so refreshing. Thank you for your blog family :)

    Happy 1,000th! I remember the day, some years ago when I first discovered this blog, and spent some time reading the archives. Don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much in my life. Keep it up, Amber!

    Congratulations! An amazing milestone! :)

  • Reply August 1, 2012


    I love your blogs! No one tells a funnier “I got locked in my own bathroom” story than you do. (Maybe the photos helped, lol)!

  • Reply August 1, 2012


    Thanks for your lovely comments, everyone! I have to admit, every time I press “publish” on a post here, I worry that no one will ever read it or respond to it, so knowing there are people who are reading, and actually enjoying it, really means a lot to me: thank you!

  • Reply August 1, 2012


    Your blog was one of the first that I ever came across and is certainly my favorite! You are a great writer, with great style, and lovely photos. I enjoy all of your posts!

    Here’s to the next thousand! Love all your blogs and visit practically every day, even if I don’t post much. That dress looks fantastic on you. Could gingham be the next polka dots I wonder?!

    I love love love reading your blog and am always super jealous by how nice your clothes are and how pretty you are :)

    Amber! Congratulations and a lot of thanks for keeping us entertained. I’ve been reading your blog for… um… six years?! I love reading your stories and I’m grateful for the laughs. I’ve been a freelancer for five months now and you’re really a role model for me (‘cos I wanna earn enough to go to Florida once a year, one day, too ;D). It’s awesome how you do all this, thanks for sharing your stories with us. All the best for you, your family and the blog!
