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.

It's always a struggle getting up in the mornings, especially when the sun is still getting some extra minutes of sleep and you're all like, "If you get to sleep in, you bastard, so do I". But once I'm awake, I'm such a morning person it's a little bit obnoxious. The morning is 100% the best time of the day and I'll argue it to the grave. There's just something so quiet and relaxing about it and you know you have the entire day still ahead of you. Deadlines are so far away and everyone else around you is still sleeping (aka leaving you alone). Not to mention the beauty of breakfast, nom nom.

I always wake myself up an entire hour earlier than I need to on the weekdays so I can get some extra work done before I have to walk into the craziness that is my office, squeeze in a blog post if I can, and cook up some breakfast. It also means I've already gathered up enough energy at this point to wake Jeremy up in the most annoying ways possible. Must be his favorite part of the day, especially since he values his sleep much, much more than me.


  1. Girl, you even look fabulous at home. How is that possible?! I'm not a morning person myself, I guess, but I'm way earlier than most of my friends. You are right, the morning is the best time of the day. It's that calm before the storm and it has the best lighting.

  2. So cute and cozy Jen! I completely agree with you on mornings being the absolute best time! I'm not always a fan of the whole...actually waking up portion... but after I've showered and have a cup of coff in my hand, the world is my oyster! Stay warm!

  6. i can totally relate.. i hate the idea of waking up early especially if I'm having an awesome dream. however, once I'm awake at an early hour, i really LOVE it. it's so peaceful! i get to enjoy a cup of coffee properly and i get to do tasks in a calm less stressed way.

  7. That dress looks fabulous on you. I'm a morning person too, but mostly because I really like to take my time in the morning and enjoy my tea and mentally prep before leaving for work (I like to get there a half hour before school starts and get all emailing etc. done too!)
