I almost blogged the other day...

Why didn't I? I have no clue, but this is what I have to say...

I miss you, I miss the apartment, I miss the 405, I miss Jamba Juice, I miss Chipotle, I miss Barnes & Noble, I miss Target, I miss Cherry on Top, I miss South Bay Galleria, I miss Belmont Shore, I miss the traffic circle, I miss In-N-Out, I miss IKEA, I miss working at the store, I miss my girls, I miss our bed, I miss wearing boots, I miss the weather, I miss my balcony, I miss the birds, I miss your smell, I miss the car, I miss the silence, I miss ANGL, I miss Bath and Body Works, I miss picking you up, I miss the Long Beach Town Center, I miss the poetry readings, I miss Starbucks, I miss PCH, I miss downtown, I miss Alegria, I miss the restaurant outings, I miss Nordstrom, I miss Victorias' Secret, I miss the Lakewood Mall, I miss driving around SoCal, I miss being able to hug you, I miss waiting for you on Thursdays, I miss cooking for you, I miss having you there. I miss Ralphs, I miss being alone all the time, I miss going wine tasting, I miss living with you, I miss Sephora, I miss your champion breakfast, I miss your guacamole, I miss too much...

  • Red Lipstick I'm kinda unsure about this still
  • Cowboy Boots Also, over it
  • Leopard Flats If you know of a cute pair, let me know
  • Ripped Jeans Over it too
My new list includes [so far]:
  •  A red dress
  • White Jeans

What's on your wishlist???

    What do YOU think?

    More than one pair of the same shoe?

    I've probably talked about my obsession with these shoes before, but I have to know. Do you think that owning the exact same pair of shoe in different colors is weird? I mean they are comfy, and I do like them. Is that wrong? Should I just go for another style? I stopped at three. But I remember having to literally stop myself from getting the black ones in patent leather, remember?

    So what do you think?

    All pics from here.

    Blog Update

    No literally, this is what I've changed in the good 'ole blog so far.

    New banner

    New "about me"

    In my 20s. In love. Puerto Rican. Moved 3,000 miles away from home. Lived in LA with my boyfriend. Came back for school. Still in love. Making it work long distance style. Major shoe obsession. Love writing randomly on notebooks. Obsessed with making lists. Only child. Capricorn. Learning Italian. Discovered a passion in blogging. Can’t live without a calendar. Coffee addict.

    I think those are the biggest changes so far. Well, blog related anyway. I also changed the layout to make it wider. I moved the elements around. I too closed my "shop". I realized that I had no time to take pictures and post them and all that. However, I'm forever thankful to those of you who supported me with my mini project. With the move, I gave away hundreds of dollars worth of clothes, shoes and accessories. I wanted to sell them, but seriously NO TIME. I liked that button so much, that I changed it to Ambar's Thoughts. So basically, now I have two. You get to select your fave. Speaking of buttons, I know there's a few that I have yet to add, I haven't forgotten, and also a couple of awards that I won, and haven't even thanked the bloggers for. All of that is coming.

    I really want to keep doing "What am I wearing" posts but due to lack of a photographer :(   well... I dunno if I'ma be able to do it. Maybe I can convince my dad?? LOL We'll see.

    Regardless, I have big plans, and a full agenda people. So get ready!!!

    Besos, XOXO

    PS: Did I mention that it's like 300 degrees in here. NO?? Well it is!

    I'm Here...

    This is a long, overdue post, and a very hard one to write, actually. But I'm here, in Puerto Rico, home.

    I took an unplanned, blogging vacation and I'm really sorry for not letting anyone know, but like I said it was  unplanned. It sort of just happened. I suddenly only had a few weeks left in LA to pack, do a million errands and most importantly spend precious time with my honey.

    I wish I could express how I feel, but basically it's as if I were hot and cold at the same time. I've never had such mixed feelings about anything in my life. I'm happy to be home and see my family but OMG so sad borderline depressed that I'm not with my boyfriend and that twe're 3,000 miles apart.

    The question in everyone's mind must be WHY? And the answer is ... I made the decision of going back to school.  Hardest decision that I've made so far, but I stick to it. I want to say that I left a piece of my heart in LA, but I would be lying I left my heart there. The whole thing.

    Enough of that, or I'm gonna turn into a big ball of tears. Good news is that I'm here, I have internet YAY!!! And I'm blogging.

    Before leaving, I had made some changes and tweaks here and there on the blog and I'll talk a bit about that on another post.

    Expect full-on blogging from June on.

    PS: From my last post, you guys were right. I got extensions, thanks for all the compliments. Wait till you see my new look.

    Miss you so much! XOXO

    Hi guys

    I know I've been horrible. Not one single word in what feels like a LIFETIME!!! But I'm going through some stuff... nothing bad, but BIG. So meanwhile I can't even blog. First cause umm I don't have internet at the place that I'm currently living and second, cause well I can't quite figure out how to start. So many feelings and emotions..etc.

    I miss you all so, SO much!!! It's unbelievable, I feel like if I hadn't spoken to my friends in a while jaja. Well... I'm off to my place so, I'll leave you with this picture of me taken during my weekend in San Diego [2 weeks ago]. I'll give you 5 points if you can tell me what's different....

    Besos!!! XOXO

    Saturday Images

    Yes, I do realize that this is the most random sets of pictures ever, but whatever. Apparently, I'm into collarbones, cats, spinal cords and Johnny Depp [I'm only into him sometimes, so you really gotta take advantage of this situation].

    Anywhoddle, there's some stuff I wanted to talk to you guys about, but I guess it'll have to wait until Monday when I come back from San Diego. Expects some pics.

    Also wanted to thank ALL of you for your comments.. jaja they crack me up, and make me feel so, SO happy always!!! Thanks for the support XOXO

    PS: Holla to the new followers =)

    What do YOU think?

    Men wearing sandals

    a. Hate it
    b. Love it
    c. meh

    I definitely HATE IT! It's always been a huge pet peeve of mine. No matter how hot the guy is, he's gotta have his toes covered up. And it's not that I'm grossed out by men's feet, I know some women are. I just hate the look. I think they're only appropriate for the beach/pool. What do YOU think?

    PS: Check out Jude Law sporting some flats

    All pics from here.

    You might as well call me Dorothy

    Cause I WANT glitter shoes!!!!

    I know I'm obsessed with the Victoria's being that I already have 3 pairs, yes THREE. But I like it ok? And now they're making more styles!!!!! OMG why?? Not only am I loving this glittery ones, but look...

    Like seriously?? Are you kidding me?? I love leopard print, and I love this shoes, and ..... ZOMG! *insert me fainting here*

    I also don't have any pairs of shoes in this shade of brown..

    At least is not the victoria, cause that would be how many pairs of the same shoe????

    Lusting for Beachwear part III

    The Cover-up

    No beach outtie is complete without a cover up, or two. LOL

    InStyleSwimwear $135

    Victoria's Secret $70

    InStyleSwimwear $124

    Victoria's Secret $58

    Victoria's Secret $30

    I want one of each, thank you, bye bye.

    Seriously!!! I love all of these!!!!!! Specially that last one with my Marylin and my fave colors and the cheap price... LOOOVE.

    Out of all the bathing suits, one-piece or two that I posted, my fave ones were color blue, so I guess the black cover up will match both or that crocheted one... that one is fantastic. Ok, so I JUST decided that I need 2 cover ups. The crocheted one for my bikini and the black tunic for my one piece and the Marylin one just cause, and that makes 3 but shutup.

    Remember that if you missed the first two posts you can check 'em out here and here.

    Which one(s) do you like??

    Lusting for Beachwear part II

    The Bikini

    I lied. A one-piece is not the only thing I want for summer!! JAJAJA one of these puppies might make me happy too.

    I need this one for tanning.. right?

     OndaDeMar $148

    Neiman Marcus $350

    InStyleSwimwear $124

    I really love that first one up there, but don't get me wrong guys... I'm still all over the one-pieces, but a girl's gotta tan ya know. Well like my bananas said, it's all about the tan lines. These puppies reaaaally make me wanna go to the beach. I keep noticing that ruffles are still very popular on bathing suits, I'm not sure how I feel about them, but I think that particular one from Onda de Mar is flattering [for us flat chested girls anyway], so what do you guys think?

    Anywhoddle, MY.FEET.REALLY.HURT. But that's a boring story. I hope everyone's enjoying their Friday. 


    PS: those prices are ridonkulous!

    Lusting for Beachwear part I

    The One-piece

    I don't think I've ever owned a one-piece bathing suit, at least one that wasn't a cut-out; but you know what guys??? That's all I want this summer!!! A one-piece bathing suit. Now, the thing is I've found a gazillion that I like. I also found some cute bikinis,which brings us Lusting for Beachwear [aka a few posts on the subject]. Couldn't resist sharing.

    My girls at BonBonRose blogged about this one here and I fell in love!
    Anthropologie $238

    What do you guys think? Do you usually go for a bikini or a one piece??? I want to know.

    Fringe gold necklace from Bakers
    Michael Kors watch
    super old wood bangles

    Soooo how are you guys doing? How was the weekend? Mine was pretty cool, got to spend some time with the honey, also went to the movies, saw Date Night jajaja it was awesome and super funny. "Who likes shirts??" Yeaaa, anyway, also went to Panera Bread for the first time ever... and YUMMMM. I really liked it, it was sort of expensive you know for a sandwich, but it was good, and the place was trendy.

    Also, I can't take these bad boys outta my head... help?
