Hi, I'm Amber. *waves*
I started my blog, ForeverAmber.co.uk, back in 2006 (Yes, I'm that old...), which means I've spent a large part of my adult life creating content for the internet, and learning a thing or two about blogging along the way. (If you've heard of my blog it's probably because of my, er, unfortunate experience with Russian Volume Eyelashes, but please don't let that put you off...)
In the 15+ years I've been writing about my life online I've started (and sold) multiple other blogs, been named the top ranked UK lifestyle blogger on multiple occasions, and appeared in various different print publications, as well as on radio.
For the last decade, my blog has been my full-time job and sole source of income: and, in the articles you'll find inside this vault, I'm sharing some of the things I've learned along the way. These articles are not designed to be read in chronological order (Although you obviously can if you really want to!), but rather as a resource to dip in and out of when you need a little bit of extra help or inspiration. New articles will be added to the vault on a regular basis, so don't forget to check back for new content.
Inside the vault you'll find articles on...
