Endlessly excitable book lover with an ever-growing shoe collection, many missing notebooks and a predictable, thirty-something's love for a good G&T.


I live in England with my husband and Thor and Loki the Pomeranians (it's chaos, fluffy fluffy chaos). 

Things that make me happy: the sun, coffee, driving through puddles, bright colours, thoughtfulness, climbing massive hills, ice cream (preferably Häagen-Dazs)

Stuff I like doing: writing about life, constructing overly ambitious cakes, daubing paint around, getting outdoors, singing enthusiastically, indulging in any excuse for fancy dress, modelling plus size fashion, and organising parties/adventures

My aims in life: to read as much as possible, to live what I learn, to be unafraid of making mistakes, to be a better human and to write lots of things worth reading

My aims for amberinred.com: to encourage people to to be absolutely kickass and follow their passions in life, engage with what's going on in the world, and love and accept their bodies and feel empowered in them
