Hey - did I see you on - International media? The news? The paper? Reddit? Snapchat? Your social media Explore page? Extremist media? Insider? Yeah, most likely. So did you..? That is something I would never do. You know me better than that. And if you don’t, stick around until you do. 

How do I contact you?
I have replaced my email access here on the website. Please don’t make me regret this action. Otherwise, please reach out directly on social media to contact me with polite inquiries. Screens may separate us, but lets remember we’re human beings with real emotions, and day to day lives that impact us to varying degrees. ♥ Thank you for your kindness and support. 

Do you pay for all the items that you feature and/or wear?   
In a word, no. I am quite blessed in that I have many opportunities to work and collaborate with brands and companies that I truly admire, and have aspired to connect with. Through a highly selective process I work with brands through paid content and sponsorship.  All photos, opinions, and reviews are my own, and are a true representative of my thoughts, and feelings towards the product. If you have any questions about my review process, or the products and brands I selectively choose to work with, please do not hesitate to ask!

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 Your e-mail will not be published.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!

I am visiting the Wine Country. Where should I go?
Welcome! I know that you will have a wonderful time. To see my list of recommended places to visit, including wineries, please visit my Local tab.

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. For my most updated hair products please feel free to email me, or check out my Natural Hair section here on the blog.  

Did you perm your hair? Or is it naturally like that?
This is au naturale darling!

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, including "Warning Signs" Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Do you really post ALL your outfits here on the blog?
No I do not. For daily updates please visit my Instagram

How big is your closet?
...Not big enough? Ha! 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 as much as I should). It really helps to make sure that I have a closet of things that I truly love! The rest I donate.

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.

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