Hello, I’m Amber, and I’m a journalist-turned-blogger working solely to support an expensive shoe habit. I also like holidays in Florida, 50s-inspired dresses, big hair and ghost stories. Oh, and wine. I live in central Scotland with my husband, Terry, a small white wolf called Rubin, 109 pairs of shoes (and counting), and far too many dresses. Forever Amber is my attempt to tell the story of my life, from the clothes I wear to the places I go and the things I do.
Here’s a little bit more about me..
We launched our business, Hot Igloo Productions Ltd., later that year, offering web design (Terry) and various writing and editing services (me): it was as much an attempt to reduce our stress levels, take back some control over our lives and spend our days doing something we actually enjoyed, as it was about earning money, and although those early days (and years) were hard, we’ve never regretted it for a moment.
We got married on March 31st, 2007, and, having learned the hard way that life is too short to be spent doing something you don’t enjoy, continue to run our business from home, although I’ve long since dropped the copywriting and freelance journalism in favour of full-time blogging.
Forever Amber is my attempt to tell the story of my life through words and pictures. I post a mixture of outfit photos, beauty product reviews and stories about my life, my home, and the various things I get up to, and I rarely stick to one topic for too long. Despite the current focus on fashion and beauty-related topics, Forever Amber has always been, and always will be, a personal journal at heart. While I have no idea what this site might become in the future, I do know that it will be forever Amber: I hope you’ll stick around for the ride!
