Thank you for stopping by! All the Ambience seeks to inspire you to live creating a life with a beautiful ambience. I, Amber Shannon, am confident that if you take care of yourself (self-care!), you will be able to generate good vibes to put positive energy back into the world, and create a world of beautiful ambience.
WHO AM I?
WHERE DO I LIVE?
Total suburbia, a bunch of miles west of the beautiful Chicago.
WHAT DID I STUDY IN COLLEGE? WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?
I majored in English and minored in Secondary Education. I was teaching high school English, but I’ve opted not to pursue a career as a classroom educator. My passions in blogging and digital creativity have truly captured my mind, soul and heart.
DO I HAVE ANY CHILDREN?
I have a beautiful and intelligent daughter named Alena. She’s starting 6th grade and living the #tweenlife… And yes, I was/am a young mom!
AM I SINGLE? DATING? MARRIED?
DATING… a really sweet, and very tall, guy named David. ♥ My boyfriend is the best and he takes most of my blog photos!
WHAT DO I DO FOR FUN?
I’m a total girly girl. I love getting dolled up, shopping, getting my nails done, spa trips, going out for breakfast (especially with my daughter)! I also love going out with family or friends to movies, dinners and to Chicago for city nights! I keep active, and I feel like there is pretty much always something going on…
When I have “me time” (self-care, what’s uppp!!!) I love relaxing with a glass of moscato and watching a movie, or reading a great book (see what I’m currently reading on Goodreads).
WHY DID I START THIS BLOG?
5 years ago, I started blogging. I’ve had a few blogs since then and you can read about that blogging journey here. I started All the Ambience to share style inspiration and self-care tips.
