100 FOLLOWERS!

unedited source
Hi everyone!
I've just reached 100 followers and I'm sooo happy, seriously!
But I feel I'm more than just happy, I feel blogging is really getting a bit more serious. I'll explain in this post..

I feel a lot different about my blog then I did when I wrote my first post. When I write a post I feel a lot happier, and like I've accomplished something! When I look at my blog I also feel really proud, I like my header which took me a lot of 'google and youtube' and also some creativity! I just feel like it's my on beautiful place on the internet which I created myself, without anyone's help.

Another thing about my blog is, it has changed me. It may sound weird to someone who hasn't got a blog, doesn't take it that serious or has just started it. But it's true. I feel a lot more confident and happy. I can't really explain how but it does! Maybe it's because I feel my blog is doing really well.

I've been only blogging for 3 months, and I feel great about it! I feel great about the fact I found something new I really enjoy doing. I feel great because I can put all my creativity and thoughts in this little blog of my own, and I also feel great because a lot of people like my blog and I've found something which can actually be succesful! Oh let me know, are you proud of you're posts and your blog?

Now this is not about my blog, but about my Youtube channel (ForeverAmber). It isn't going that good, but I really enjoy making videos. And I put a lot of time into it. It also feels great and I'm proud of (most of) my videos! So if you like reading my blog you might also like my Youtube channel. Also check out my sister's channel, she sometimes makes photos for my blog! (Lela)

Hope you like this little update/ramble post!
Thanks to everyone who has ever looked at my blog, commented on my blog and especially followed me!<3
xoxo

PS. check out my Instagram, I'm finally using it! ;)<3

Autumn Tag

Hi lovely!
So I've been  reading the 'Autumn Tag' in a lot of blogs lately, and now I'm tagged!
I've been tagged by the lovely Britanny (Britanny's Life). So thank you Britanny! Oh and I've also been tagged by Miss Ridx.
I don't really have anything to say about it, so let's start with the questions! 


Favourite thing about it?
I like how pretty the trees look when I'm on my bike. I really enjoy watching everything change the whole year. 

Favourite drink?
This is for the winter too, hot chocolate obviously. But tea is nice too!

Favourite scent/candle?
I don't have candles.

Best lipstick?
I don't wear any make up.

Go to moisturizer?
I've been using nivea body lotion all my life. And it works for me, but maybe I'm just very lucky.

Go to colours for the eyes?
And again, I don't wear any make up!

Favourite music or band/singer to listen to?
I don't have  a particular 'autumn band/singer'. I just like what's new, especially 'Wrecking Ball' from Miley Cyrus.

Favourite outfit to wear? (i.e. boots and scarf combo)
Ugg boots, bleu jeans from Primark, comfy jumper and a cute scarf! I can feel an OOTD coming up ;)

Autumn treat?
Nothing really, maybe a lip balm from EOS because the one I'm using now isn't really working.

Favourite place to be?
Probably the forest, I should come there more often ( the forest is like my neighbour ). It's so pretty especially in the winter and autumn!

Now, I'm going to tag:
Lovely Lou
...a Touch of Beauty
Lost in Wonderland
The Anne Diaries
(Hopefully you haven't been tagged already)


Thanks for reading!

A Little Fashion Wishlist!

Hi,
So today I made my first wish list! It's a fashion one! :)



Bikini
The bikini I saw on Wanelo. It's from Target. They probably don't have it anymore. But I wouldn't know because we don't have Target where I live! I really like the pattern mixed with the colour. And it's just a little different, love it. I don't know how much it costs.

Backpack
This one I also saw on Wanelo. This backpack is from Topshop, but unfortunately it's ouf of stock! I love it, the safari pattern is soo cute! It's quite expensive for a backpack I feeL, £34.00. Still want it though ;)

Kitten Top
I think I've been using Wanelo too much.. I think this top is sooo adorable! I love the cute kitten smiling and to top that, it's wearing nerd glasses in a mint colour! :D How can you not love this top! You can find the top right here. It's $25.00

12 Sweater
This sweater is from Forever 21. I really liked 'the look' of this sweater. With the stripes on the sleeves and the black & white. I just liked it! And it's not that exspensive,  23,75

Vintage Camera's top
I love love love this top! The vintage camera's are so pretty! I just love it. I also like the black & white effect. This one is $21. Oh and it's a Brandy Melville top.

Leather Brogeus (I'm just going to call them shoes)
I've been wanting something like this for a while now. Not sure I'm ever getting them though. Love these ones, especially because I like the colour a lot. They're from Forever 21 and they're 25,90.

Lace Top
This black lace top I think is so lovely because it has this sort of 'modern' pattern in it. Not just flowers! I think that's why I liked this not particular lace top! It's from H&M and it costs 12,95.

Cat Naps PJ
I just thought this was so cute. And it's sold out :( The little cats on the shorts are so cute! And I just think it looks so comfy! And it was only 9,77. Now I'm sad ;(

Before people are starting to comment, I know I used dollars, pounds and euros in this post! Can't do anything about it.

Hope you like my first ever wishlist!
Thank you for reading!<3

Painting DIY | 'keep calm and love twins'

Hi everyone! I'm back, back again, whoop whoop! ;)

When I have summer vacation I always do things I don't normally do because I don't have the time.
So a couple of weeks ago I painted!

I saw a  'keep calm painting' on a blog. But I sort of forgot the name of the blog. So sorry!
And I thought, let's try it out! I made a keep calm and love twins painting with a aztec background. But you can change the text and everything just the way you want! This is how I did it!

1,
First of all, get everything! I like to put some paper under my painting because I don't want any paint on my desk. You obviously need paint and some brushes. It's also nice to have a pencil and a ruler. And you might want to grab something like an Ipad or a PC or something like that.

2.
I used the Ipad to look up how big the letters are in comparison to the other words. Then I started drawing the letters with a pencil and ruler.

3.
The letters look darker because the effect which I didn't use in the next photos.
Now I painted the base coat of the letters. It doesn't have to be perfect just yet.

4.
I then drew a heart above the letters.

5.
Next thing is painting your background, pick any colour you want!

6.


I now painted a second coat on the letters. You can really see the difference so I recommend doing that.

7.

I now also painted the back ground again. Which I would again, highly recommend. And I also started with the aztec by painting some circles.

8.

Now complete the aztec print with things you can think of! And what I like to do is also paint the 'sides' of a painting because it looks better. So I just cotinued the aztec print.


The end result! I think it's a bit, how do you say it, incorrect. If you now what I mean. Everything is just not in the right size. But I still like it! And I hope you do too!

If you did this too, please send me a photo or maybe a link to a post if you even made a post about it. Just let me know!

Thank you for reading!
See you soon!
xoxo
