JennifHsieh is a space for my rambling thoughts and snaps of my everyday style. I'm based in Astoria, Queens and I share a home with my two derpy cats and my equally derpy fiancé.

These are a Few of my Favorite Things (Giveaway)!

i hope you guys are all having a fabulous christmas or enjoying the holidays snug and warm at home (or on vacation)! although my family doesn't really celebrate christmas much and we don't exchange gifts, it's still a nice, relaxing christmas. the tree is up and we're going to make dumplings together (so asian, i know). and my brother is coming home tonight :)
i've only started on this blog for about a month now and i've gotten so many followers and supportive comments. i'm having so much fun on here and so to thank all of you fellow bloggers out there i'm having a christmas giveaway! i thought, what better than to share with you guys some of my favorite things? There will be THREE prizes for THREE winners! :)

1) Fekkai Sheer Hold®  Hairspray (1.5 oz)

This is my absolute favorite hairspray. Whenever I curl my hair I spray a little of this on and it holds my style for hours without making it stiff. I can still run my fingers through to loosen up my waves :) <3

2) Forever 21 Olive Rib Column Tights (M/L)

I don't know if you guys have noticed but I adore tights. I keep on growing my collection and buying more and more colors. I don't think I'm going to try for the whole rainbow (I doubt I'd wear every color) but I want to come close! Olive Green is a color I don't have yet (and would love to own) but I'll pass it on to one lucky winner.

3) Forever 21 Charm Necklace 

I get most of my jewelry from Forever 21 due to their cheap prices and LARGE variety. I usually go for simple necklaces rather than statement pieces and I love this adorable charm necklace (especially the wishbone).

Here are the Official Rules to Enter: 
1) You must include your first name and your email address in a comment.
2) You must be a Google Reader follower OR a fan on chictopia (let me know which).
3) You must pick only one of the prizes and tell me which one.
4) Finally, tell me how you spent your lovely christmas :)

Example Entry:
Jen (
I'm a follower/fan!
I want the hairspray!
I spent my christmas warm and snug in front of the tv watching Willy Wonka. :)

The winners will all be drawn randomly (I'll put all your names in a cup) and notified through email. Each winner will receive their chosen gift and a few other random goodies! The deadline to enter is Wednesday, December 30. (Open to U.S. and International Readers, only because I'm feeling pretty damn generous) Good Luck! :)

* Blog about this giveaway for an extra entry (for any of the three prizes, doesn't have to be the same one you picked for your first entry). Send me the link to where you blogged about it in a new comment! :)

    I spent my Christmas in a traditional way, yet it was wonderful. Me and my family (mom, dad, 2 sisters, 1 brother) went to church on Christmas Eve and then had dinner together. I gave them all early Christmas presents and felt so good about it. Giving is so much more fulfilling than receiving... ^_^

    I think I'll mention this giveaway on my blog. Will inform you the link later..
