Christmas Photography

This is nothing special but before December finishes I'd like to show you a few photos from when I had my Christmas Tree set up.

All taken on December 5th. 

Friday, December 25, 2015


It's Christmas! Yet over here it doesn't even feel like it because it's like 70 degrees outside. Yesterday was a really fun day with my family and friends, and I even got to spend a bit of it with my boyfriend which made me happy.

Anyway, this post will contain 3 parts.

Part 1: What I got for Christmas!
For Christmas, I actually got the NuMe hair products and I was so excited, I also finally got a debit card with my money already put in. I also got Lush from my boyfriend. Other than that I got new camera equipment

Part 2: What I gave to others for Christmas!
I gave my friends all cute necklaces/bracelets which they loved, I got my secret santa a gift which was a pop! toy collectable from the show Gotham and I got my boyfriend a game stop gift card. I got my brother an adidas bag for soccer and I got my parents chocolates!

Part 3: What I did for Christmas!
Last night I had a dinner with my family and I got to hang out with friends. Today I am planning to go out again with my friends and go to New York which is why this post is really small.

Yeah... we're going to New York, I'm probably going to take photos so I'll talk to you guys next time, bye!!!!!

Christmas Wish List!

Hey guys! Sorry for a delay in my posting, deadlines for college are approaching and I'm still applying. Anyway, today I decided to blog about my Christmas wish list because Christmas is literally this Friday and I'm so excited! For those who need ideas for Christmas gifts, maybe my list will inspire you or something.

  1. NuMe Products- Lustrum Set and Silhouette I've been dying to get their curling wands and straighteners for the longest time because I want to learn how to do my hair so it can look nicer and less messier. 
  2. Lush!- Because who wouldn't want Lush as a Christmas gift?! It smells amazing and their Christmas products are adorable.
  3. Pandora Ring- Part of me has always wanted to have a ring to wear and Pandora sells really affordable rings so who knows, maybe I'll buy one for myself.
  4. Makeup- Any type of makeup would be nice, I really want to experiment with makeup tbh
  5. Tiny Tea Detox- A friend recommended it and said it turned her into a tea lover and gave her energy to do things throughout the day (which I definitely need)
  6. Fjallraven Kanken- I have one in a fog grey color for school and it is my absolute favorite bag that I just have to get another one.
  7. Wildflower Phone Case- Sydney and Devon Lee Carlson always promote those phone cases and it makes me want one so badly
  8. Dr. Martens- It's just a tradition that I have to get a new pair of Dr. Marten's every year
  9. A cute purse- Since I now have to try carrying purses around because my mom said so.
  10. Headphones- Any type of headphones would be nice
  11. Jewelery and Clothes- Because I am no longer a little kid who hates getting clothes on Christmas.
That is what I want for Christmas! I would be extremely lucky and thankful to receive these gifts and I'm actually going to be buying some of these on my own because I now have a job in which I can buy myself stuff! Before Christmas I will post "Gift Giving" (what I have bought others) and I will have a "What to do for Christmas" post for you guys. Talk to you guys soon

Gone for Two Months.

Hey guys! It's been a while, I know, I am so sorry. Life has just been too busy for me. But I am back and I've missed writing on this blog.

SO I know you guys probably have questions like: Where have you been? When and what will you be posting on this blog? Will you possibly take breaks like this one in the future?

I've been places. I've been at work taking photos and editing them while going to portfolio reviews. I've been with my boyfriend, hanging out and watching movies while he still isn't completely busy with sports. I've been trying to finish college applications so I can advance with my future and so I won't stress out about it next year. I've been around.

I haven't found out when I will be officially posting on this blog, maybe it might be on the weekends because that's when I find myself the least busy out of all the days of the weeks. As of what I will be posting is totally up to me. For the past weeks that I've been off of my blog, I've been thinking of ways to improve my blog. It's still a work in progress. But hopefully it'll come out to be really cool by the time 2016 begins.

Everyone takes breaks. This has not been the first time I've taken a break from a blog. This will probably not be my last time. The reason why I took this break was so I can get my life back together so I can come back and give you great blog quality. It's better to leave and come back with a bang then stay and not show your best work.

But for now, I am back and I can't wait to show you guys what is to come in the future. If you guys have any topic you'd like me to talk about in my next post, please let me know! I'd love to write about anything that you would like to know. Thanks and see you guys soon :)

Sunday, October 18, 2015


Today while I was outside with a friend, we had a little conversation about many things but the one that stood out the most to me was our conversation about phases. It made us laugh a bit because his middle school phase was the same as mine, and it was during the same year. 7th grade. We didn't know each other at that time. Anyways, phases are really neat. To think about it, we can all compare ourselves to the moon: constantly changing and going through phases. It's incredible too, because when I think about what I wanted to be when I'm older back then, I think how big my expectations were growing up. Okay... that probably made no sense to you guys. What I mean to say is that the younger version of me had high expectations of what the me now should've been. Back in the day, I would always say "When I grow up I'm going to be a cheerleader and I'm going to be popular." If I could meet the younger version of me, I think she'd be very disappointed. But a part of younger me would be happy because we ended up being a great person. Back to the topic. We all go through phases. We get influenced to be someone else, we all try to discover who we are. Believe it or not, we never really know who we want to be until we grow older. I don't even think I know who I want to be as of right now. Life's all about discovering who you want to be. If it wasn't for phases, I don't think anyone would know what they would want to be. Honestly, I'd feel like we'd all be unhappy boring people. Phases help you through trial and error. You don't like being a certain way? Then go ahead and change it until you find what you want. The way that this happens intrigues me so much because we constantly change and "shed our skin" to become a new person. The phase I'm currently going through is the same one I've been doing since 2013. I think this phase is the one that has fully captured who I am. Who am I? You'll find out in my next post :)

xx, ambar.

Let's Talk.

Hey guys. It's me Ambar. I'm currently in that point of time when I have no clue on what to post. Writers block much? Yup. As of now, I'm drinking some hot chocolate from Dunkin Donuts and I have all my homework laid out next to me, probably homework that I don't even want to start yet.

I'm still stuck having PCD, and honestly it's real. I just wish it was October 2nd again, and I would've been heading to the venue right now.

I'm wearing my most bummiest clothes today; a black shirt, sweats (which I have to change out of later) and a burgundy purplish cardigan. I want to post an OOTW like every month, but I always wear like the same stuff every week.

On October 29th, I have homecoming! I'm not completely sure I want to go but if I do then I hope I have fun. I'm not much of a dancer but you gotta enjoy dances on senior year by what everyone says.

October 30th, WIPED OUT! is released and I'm so pumped, I'm currently trying to get my parents to order the bundle for me before it sells out because that means more The NBHD merch and I love merch.

Halloween is also coming up pretty soon and I think I have the best costume ever set out. I just have to go buy all the items, but I'm really excited. I'm probably celebrating Halloween with my friends and then at night with my brother and his friend because he's going to celebrate his birthday on Halloween.

Anyways, how is everyone's life? Is everything going good? Did you pass your test this week? If you did, I'm proud of you! Are you not looking forward to a stressful week? It's okay, we all go through the toughest times, you'll get through this week. Life flies by in a flash so don't get hung up on a stressful week.

I hope you guys just enjoyed this random blog post. I'm trying to get my life together... ALSO. I am thinking of schedules for my blog for the upcoming new year. Be prepared for a wild 2016... even though its still October 2015.

First Concert

Yeah, that's right. The cold of october has finally approached which means a terrible winter to follow along. However, that did not stop me from standing in line to see my favorite band.

Yesterday, I got to see the Neighbourhood live at Terminal 5. They were the first band I saw live and to be honest, I would go back to that night once again. Believe it or not, I want to convince my parents to let me see them tonight for the 2nd night in a row. Anyway, back to the story. I got up early as I would for school. Luckily my mom let me miss school, so thank you mom. I got ready and texted my friend to come to my town so we can catch a bus there. And we did. It was like 2:30 when we got there so the traffic started piling. That did not stop us from walking. Another friend of mine, who I met through instagram, Nicole, was already there and she held our spot for us. We got there at around 3:15 and from there we waited. Out in the freezing cold. No big deal, but around 6:00, when Nat, Nicole, Gen and I were together, it began to get worse. At 7pm they started letting people in. And we got in, we went to the balcony (best view ever if your small) and I went downstairs to buy merch. Because who doesn't love merch. I bought a hoodie, a long sleeve shirt, a set of 3 pins and a R.I.P Youth lighter which I dont ever think I'll use (unless its for lighting up a candle).

8:15. Hunny performs. They were so great! I only have heard of Cry for Me, but all their other songs were super rad, and I enjoyed it.

8:45-ish. Bad Suns comes up. Insanity. Christo even sorta crowd surfed and it was GREAT. He gave off a greaser kind of vibe and it made me melt.

9:45. THE NEIGHBOURHOOD PERFORMS. When Jeremy, Zach, Mikey, and Brandon came out me and my friends were flipping out, when Jesse came out I LOST IT. In my snapchat, all you hear is me scream "JESSE!" so loudly. It was insane. Their setlist was to die for. They played some songs from I Love You, which brought me back and made me happy that I got to see them perform some of that album. He played the mixtape, which was amazing, and it made me laugh because he had a GTA background for When I Get Back, and he had that weird video for Lurk which was my favorite. Then they played some of the new album, Wiped Out!, my favorite was Daddy Issues and RIP 2 My Youth. If you guys want to know what they sound like and you're going to the concert, I recommend just listening to it live because it was such a crazy experience.

I'm going to stop here because I have post concert depression so I'm going to find their live videos on YouTube right now. Thanks for reading guys, see you next week!

Back to the Busy Work Week!

So this is going to be really short, and this week i have nothing to post. So i just want to tell you guys about my job. I work as a photographer for my school. Recently we have been beginning to bring in the work load and it has been tough. I'm talking about spending more than 10 hours in school per day! I go to school at 7am and because of my job sometimes I don't leave until like 8:00pm. But you know what I like my job. It's really fun and I get to do what I love the most. Also, next week I will hopefully have some photos up for September photography! I've been doing photography for my school so I'm going to find a couple that I cant actually post here without giving away my school.

I'm so sorry but next week I will have a blog post to actually write about! See you next time!

Reasons to Love Autumn.

This morning I woke up to a chilly morning with a cup of coffee in my hand as I was walking to my job. As I was walking I was like, "thank god I brought my sweater because it's chilly out." Then it hit me, autumn is literally right around the corner. Finally the summer heat is leaving us after a harsh 3 months. Anyway, everyone loves autumn. I don't think anyone could possibly hate this season. If you aren't a big fan of autumn, these reasons might get you to like it a bit more. And if you already love it, then here are reasons to love this wonderful season even more.

  1. MORNING. Mornings are always the best. The crisp air outside during the mornings literally wake me up. I love to wake up in the morning and walk to school with chill crisp air and the leaves being all around the floor. It's just so relaxing, while when it's hot or too cold, you're technically rushing to school to be in a better temperature environment.
  2. LEAVES. Pretty much the leaves are the coolest things ever. The colors that they change into are so pretty and way back then I remember racking them up and throwing them (sorta like a fall photo shoot you'd see on tumblr.) and it would look breath-taking, at least to me it did.
  3. CLOTHES. I cannot stress how happy I get when it starts getting chilly. Personally, I am not someone who likes to dress in short shorts and tank tops, I like to wear my jeans and cardigans. During autumn I get to dress up in darker colors and more layers which keep me cozy 24/7. 
  4. CUDDLING WEATHER. For those of you who have a cuddle buddy (friend, significant other, parent, animal, etc), I think we all know how difficult it is to cuddle with someone without worrying about your sweating all the time. During the summer, if you cuddle with someone you begin to stick on them (like really stick on them). Me and my then boyfriend cuddled once during the spring/summer and we hated it so much because it was uncomfortable, during the autumn it was just much more nicer and less sweaty.
  5. FILMS AND MUSIC. I tend to watch too much film during autumn and it's just so easy to cuddle up in a blanket (or into someone's arms or vice-versa) and watch a movie. During this season, halloween movies are literally all I watch, like all the time, I'm actually starting the halloween movies in two weeks because I'm still adjusting to school. Also fall just gives off this vibe that people tend to match up to music playlists which I really love to listen to (mostly calm relaxing music).
  6. PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE. I've never had PSL but from what everyone says about it, it must be an essential. 
  7. HALLOWEEN AND THANKSGIVING. HOW COULD I FORGET THESE TWO HOLIDAYS. Halloween is my favorite because of the trick-or-treating, movie nights, parties, and costumes. My costume this year is going to be really cool, and if you guys are true 90s kids, maybe you'll know who I'm going to be. Thanksgiving is my favorite too because of the Macy's Day Parade, The Dog Show afterwards, the food and most of all, giving thanks for all you have. That day is just a really nice day, until black friday the next day. 
  8. SPORTS. Fútbol. (Soccer for the Americans). Hockey. Football. First of all, I am not a big fan of football, I am a huge fan of fútbol and hockey though. I am literally attending every game of fútbol (soccer) at my high school. However, if you guys are huge football fans, this is the time where you go out and attend the games, even I'm going to try to go to the football games at my high school since it's my last year. The excitement I have for fall sports is literally insane.
  9. SWEATERS. SWEATERS. HOT CHOCOLATE & SWEATERS. To describe a perfect fall day for me, it'll be me in a huge oversized sweater or something, some hot chocolate made, my favorite movie (Harry Potter) on my mac book screen, and a dark environment. Sweaters and hot chocolate to me (and maybe others) is a necessity for fall, I don't think I can stress this much. Plus come on, it's pretty self explanatory why they are necessities. 
  10. EVERYTHING. Overall, what is there to hate about fall, all the bugs left yo. 

Anyways I hope you guys liked my version of Reasons to Love Autumn (Fall), maybe I share some things in common with you guys when it comes to this. If there are any requests for my next posts, please leave them in the comment because I would appreciate it a lot. See you guys in my next post, bye!

Update Post.

Now, I know what I said on "being active" and everything. I didn't like the way everything was being done so I decided to change everything up. I just started senior year and my job again so I knew that I wouldn't be able to accomplish Cassey's tasks. So... I created a new schedule for myself.

Monday: 6 minute workouts. Monday's are the toughest and doing 5 workouts (30 minutes) is enough for a day

Tuesday: ABS! Because I overall want to get nice abs (they don't have to be perfect but anything is good, you know)

Wednesday: Arms. I'm a big fan of my arms, I find them to be my best feature so eventually I will add obliques to wednesday, but I want to tone my arms.

Thursday: Butt. Don't really care about having a nice butt, however, I can't leave this out

Friday: Thighs. I HAVE BIG THIGHS. not because I'm unhealthy but because hispanics are born like that, I also have saddle bags and cellulite that I'd love to get rid of.

Saturday: Obliques. Obliques are the sides of your upper/lower abs, aka muffintops. Something that I'd like to get rid of too, because sometimes they can be a pain.

Sunday: Rest/Flexibility. I just really love relaxing on sundays and I want to be flexible af.

Now for the update.
I just started school/ my job as of last week, so my schedule is packed and pretty hectic for the next two months or so. As it is my senior year, application process is going on right now as we know it. I'm not so sure if I'll be able to post really good blog stuff, but I am trying my hardest to do so. Also, thank you guys so much for all the positivity, like seriously you guys are the best. I am so proud of the progress that has been made in less than a month (thank you teen blogger central!) Anyway, I will talk to you guys on my next post, bye! :)

Influenster saves lives.

If you guys didn't know already, I am a part of the Influenster community, which is really cool because its a community where people review stuff. Influenster sent me a couple things to review in a VoxBox! I tried so many times to put this up here, so I gave up and put it on my old YouTube channel.

These products were all sent to me by influenster for reviewing purposes. If you guys would like to check out influenster then go to . Thanks for watching, see you guys next time!

End of Summer/ School Playlist

So summer is almost to an end... well at least for me. This summer was (to me) a time that I got to discover more music, and so I want to share some of that with you guys. I don't have playlists for them in my spotify/8tracks but I may end up doing sometime in the fall.

Summer Playlist- involves a lot of beach-y vibes, some dark vibes and otherwise just really good vibes for me

  1. High by the Beach- Lana del Rey. Because let's be honest, Lana always makes a great summer anthem (Summertime Sadness was a big hit last year)
  2. Dreams- Beck. I remember when everyone was questioning who he is, but now everyone should know because Dreams is such a cool tune.
  3. New Americana- Halsey. Badlands in general is just something worth listening to, the day Badlands came out I was freaking out, New Americana is just one of the many songs I listened to over the summer, but this one deserves to be in my summer playlist.
  4. Everyone's In- Lena Fayre. Anyone that was into Lorde back then will like Lena Fayre, believe it or not I came upon her music unexpectedly trying to find another song (which ended being on my music app, I was so disappointed). Anyways this doesn't have summerlike vibes but I listened to this song a ton.
  5. A-Punk -Vampire Weekend. This song just makes me want to dance a lot, so this deserves to be here honestly. Plus, Ezra Koenig is life goals. Major summer favorite
  6. Cry for Me- HUNNY. Also a part of my school playlist. Overall I discovered them because they will be performing at the Neighbourhood's concert that I'm going to and this song is so addicting. Definitely one of my favorite bands now.
  7. Blurryface- Twenty One Pilots. Any song in the blurryface album was definitely a part of my summer, I was jamming to that album 24/7, even managed to get my cousins into this music when I was vacationing.
There's a lot more but I'm going to move onto my School Playlist now.
School's a drag, but my music isnt- a playlist dedicated to music I will have on while I have free time or I'm working. 
  1. R.I.P 2 My Youth- The Neighbourhood. Because school will be the end of my youth, no joke, with all the work going on, this song will describe my life to the fullest. (joking, just the fact that school is approaching makes me say r.i.p 2 my youth tbh)
  2. Hotline Bling- Drake. Because who doesn't love bumping to Drake on a school day??
  3. Beauty Behind the Madness- The Weeknd. Everyone's jam, especially mine, so I'll be listening to a lot of Abel during my school time. Overall, any song by the Weeknd will be an essential.
  4. #000000&#ffffff- The Neighbourhood. Mixtape vibes, and the fact that I'd have to wait until the 30th of October to get their newest album, WipedOut!.
  5. Blurryface- Twenty One Pilots. Because Twenty One Pilots. That is all. 
  6. Badlands- Halsey. Halsey is my queen tbh
  7. Froot- Marina and the Diamonds. It's just a great album let's be real.
  8. Probably any album on my music app on my phone tbh, which is too many albums to put down here, but they're all rad af.
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy my playlists and if you guys would like to see my playlists on spotify or 8tracks, please let me know and I might just do that! See you guys next time, bye!

Being Active

I am not an active person, I know that for a fact. I am probably the most laziest person ever. No joke. This school year is a year of change though. I am a senior in high school now yet I'm the laziest I've been in a long time. Believe it or not, as a kid I was always active. Yeah can you believe that? I used to be in a swimming class (which I didn't like), was on a recreational basketball, softball, and soccer team most of my childhood, and I played tennis. I'm still into soccer, but everything else I lost interest in. I tried playing soccer for high school but a major health issue got into the way leading to me being unfit and lazy right now.

All of that is about to change, I want to be an active person. I want to get back into my extreme love of playing soccer (although my playing is terrible now). This year I will be taking on the goals of eating healthy, drinking about 5 bottles of water a day (it's what my weight demands, as shown on plant nanny an app), and I will be doing blogilates. For those of you who don't know what blogilates is, it's a workout central where Cassey shows you workouts. I'm currently on the beginners workout plan but I think I just might stick to doing 30 day challenges repeatedly as my schedule is about to be packed for the next few months. BUT I'm going to try my hardest to stay on the beginner's workout plan until the end, hopefully in january I will able to share some progress with you guys!

Talk to you guys all next time, bye!

Film Fridays

I was writing in my journal and I was coming up with my layout plan for this blog, and I came across the fact that I'm so into movies. Correction: film, as it should be called. I don't know why but I feel like "best film of the year" sounds better than "best movie of the year" when they announce it on a commercial.

Anyways, I thought maybe I could talk about films that attract my attention. This month, I will talk about True Story, a dark film that had me glued to my seat.

As I was on a plane back home to New Jersey, I saw that I missed the first hour of True Story (been wanting to watch that movie since before it came out, but I forgot about it), so I wrote it down on my phone and decided to watch another film. When I got home, I watched True Story. It was inspiring and in fact, a true story.

James Franco portrayed the character Christian Longo. Jonah Hill plays New York Times' reporter Michael Finkel. Main point: Christian Longo is accused for killing his wife and 3 kids. Anyways ,Christian Longo is so inspired by Mike Finkel that he takes Finkel's identity, crazy right? Even crazier is that they meet and Mike feels a connection to Longo and it is Longo that lures Mike to write his side of the story. Longo creates this book to send to Mike called "Wrong Turns" which describes his dark life (which I am not going to describe, because spoilers), which immediately glued me to my seat. Something else was that Finkel's wife seemed to be so distraught by Longo's book that it made me start to wonder, what is going on in her head (like seriously, did they not want to show the dark side of Finkel's wife, because that would have been great). But above all times, the scene that hit me the hardest was during Longo's trial, when he ends his story by saying that "it's sort of like a double negative" or something like that, because Finkel taught him about double negatives during one of their meets. It blew my mind.

The following will have spoilers regarding the film. Now about the real story, back in 2001.  Christian does end up guilty for the killing of his wife and kids. Longo ended up being diagnosed with a narcissistic personality disorder. Explains his "Wrong Turns" book in the film. Also explains the way he acted during the trial. He also did actually use Mike Finkel's identity illegally when he escaped the country. Michael Finkel was a reporter who was fired for writing a report that was considered a lie. Hearing about someone taking his identity (Longo), he goes out to meet him and sees that Longo's a huge fan of his work.  Long story short, Longo is guilty and sentenced to death row. However, he and Finkel still communicate although he is on death row. Finkel later publishes the book, True Story and in 2009 Longo comes clean, saying he did murder his wife and kids. And that's all I have.

Thanks for reading this film friday edition, if you would like to know more about this True Story, watch the film, search it online, you'll find much more information. Also, sorry that this is all dark, but it was the most interesting documentary I've seen in years. See you guys next time.

July & August Photography

I think one of the greatest things about being a photographer is that you get to capture memories. Although I wasn't really considered a photographer until May of this year, my passion for photography has always been with me. Ever since I was small, I was always interested in the people that would take pictures at events. Instead of partying at one of my friend's 15th birthday, I was talking to the professional photographer all night long. Odd right? Yeah I know. Luckily, I was able to get a professional camera last year and get a job with photography in my school... the rest is history.

My love for taking photos led me to this idea. Why not post photos every month? Why not capture memories every month? I know billions of bloggers are huge photography bloggers, but I feel like posting my photos onto this blog will help showcase clearly who I am.

So without further ado... My photos of my summer vacation to Dominican Republic!

Hope you guys enjoy and talk to you guys next time!

New Start

I've tried to make a blog that will fit who my personality, but then I discovered that the blog that I made represented something I wanted to be, not what I am, nor will I ever be. So here I am recreating a new blog after removing all my other blogs from sight.

I'm Ambar and honestly, this is my third time creating a blog to fit who I am. I am a senior in high school. I have no idea what I want to do when I graduate but I'm living my life as best as I can until then.

Now I'd like to describe myself.  I get inspired by anything that has to deal with photography, film, music and art. I tend to be awkward around people. This blog's content will contain my innermost thoughts and my inspiration coming to life.

I hope you stick around. xx
