FAQ:


How do I contact you?
amber [at] amusedblog [dot] com

I want to leave a comment, but I don't want to create a DISQUS account/I want to remain anonymous.
I understand. To leave a comment without creating an account, simply click on the dialogue box. You will be given the option of signing in with a social media account, or to "Pick a name". Fill in whichever name you choose (preferably a real/respectful one!), and check the "I'd rather post as guest" box, and then the gray arrow. Your e-mail will not be published. You're good to go!

I was on your blog and I saw ________, and I was wondering if you would sell it to me?
While I have toyed with the idea of selling some of my personal items, I have yet to act on it. I purchase things that I love, and at the moment I'm not ready to part with them!

What do you use to style your hair?
I get this question a lot. I get it through email, on the blog, at work and even on the sidewalk. My hair routine changes about every 4-6 months, and while I have often claimed Wen as my 'go to' product, I have recently decided to stop using it. For my most updated hair products please feel free to email me, or check out my tumblr.  

Did you perm your hair? Or is it naturally like that?
This is au naturale darling! For curly hair tips, be sure to check out my Tumblr!

This looks familiar...Did you have another blog?
A•Mused Blog used to be "Amber's Mouthwash". If you type in the old blog address, you will be redirected here.

Why "A•Mused"?
It's a play on spelling. "A" for Amber, and "amused" for the things that I find amusing, such as fashion, travel, and art. Amuse: "to make someone laugh or smile : to entertain (someone) in a light and pleasant way." That's what I hope my blog does for you!

What kind of camera do you use?
The camera equipment used on A•Mused varies. I work with professional photographers who photograph with full frame cameras. I of course know how to use my own camera, and shoot with a T2i, and several lenses; my wide angle is a Sigma. 


Do you use Photoshop on your photos?
Yes I do. However I do not, and will not ever edit a photo to make myself appear thinner, taller, etc. This is a strict policy of mine.

Where did all your essays go?
Due to the very personal nature of my essays, I made the decision to temporarily remove them. I hope to have them online again at some point in the future. I will say, it warms my heart to know that you miss them! EDIT: Some of them have been re-published. "Warning Signs" a quite popular essay on anxiety has been pulled for a reedit. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Do you really post ALL your outfits here on the blog?
No. I am not able to post all of my outfits, because then I would be posting everyday of the week. It usually takes me about 4-5 hours to create an outfit post (photo time included). For daily updates please check my Instagram

How big is your closet?
My closet is the length of our hallway. Roughly 10 ft long. It's all mine! I try to rotate my items: I don't have a storage unit that I keep my "surplus" items. Every 6 months I take inventory of everything that I own, and get rid of things that are old, worn out, stained, or that I purchased on a whim (and am not wearing). It really helps to make sure that I have a closet of things that I truly love! The rest I donate.

Do you ever just wear jeans and a t-shirt? Do you always look dolled up?
Please have a look at this video. I rest my case. 

Do you accept guest posts?
On occasion, yes. I do however have strict guidelines of what I will accept. The guest post must be related to fashion, lifestyle, or travel, be an original piece (not previously published), and spell checked thoroughly. The article may not promote a company or brand in any way. Articles that do will not be accepted as a guest post. I do accept sponsored, paid posts, and those are handled differently. 

If you would like to submit a guest post, please contact me first.

Do you pay for all the items that you wear?   
No, not all items. All sponsored or gifted items will be declared with a "c/o" and are ones that I myself have personally picked out. I will always make note of the clothing/shoes/jewelry my sponsors have kindly provided. I will also include a link of where you may find the item yourself. There is often a discount that I can provide you as well, so please be sure to ask!

Have any more questions? Send me an e-mail, and I will be sure to get back to you!
