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.

Getting up this morning was a little bit harder than usual and all I can think about is how nice it would be to make a little home for myself on my couch and watch Netflix. Lately, I've been re-watching Parks & Recreation and I'm finding myself addicted all over again. I'm one of those people who watched up until the fifth season and then never got back to watching it after they took a short hiatus. So now, I'm starting from the beginning until I finish the entire series; it helps that Jeremy has never seen it and is now just as obsessed with it as I am.

And in more shameful Netflix news, I have officially started watching Gossip Girl. That show was on my list of things I would never watch in my entire life and I stuck by that for the past eight years of my life. Until now. It's hard to find shows that I can watch on my own time since all of the shows I want to watch are usually also on Jeremy's list, so we watch them together. So as I was scrolling through some options on Netflix, curiosity got the best of me. What made it all the rage back in the day? I needed to know...and now I regret it because I'm hooked in the worst possible way.

It's full of all the things I hate but I can't look away. And I'm ashamed but I'm not and I just sit there simultaneously uncomfortably watching it and thinking about my poor life choices. What have I done?


  1. Oh my God, Jen! Everything about these photos just look right!
    The golden leaves tho, oh, those GOLDEN LEAVES!
    Can't you tell how jealous I am that you get to experience autumn :')

    Alive as Always

  2. I am so happy that you're watching Gossip Girl now...that show is my ultimate guilty pleasure. It's also my very frivolous dream to live a life like Blair's (kind of...very superficially).
    But on the topic of better television, I have a couple episodes left in the Parks & Rec series, and I'm trying to savor the last moments as much as possible.
    Also, these photos are just so perfect -- the leaves on the ground and with that matching top, so perfect.

  3. Beautiful photos! You look lovely! :) xx

  4. omg!!! i have another friend who just recently started watching gossip girl too!

    totally loving your pictures here, Jen! LOVE ALL THE YELLOW!

    Have a great week!

  5. Bahaha, I started laughing about the Gossip Girl part. I still haven't caved yet, but I totally understand the guilt! I'm currently hooked on Justin Bieber's new album...ugh. I'm so ashamed of myself... -_- I used to pride myself on having good taste in music...sigh.
    Anyway, loooove this outfit girl, another gorgeous look! Your top matches the fall leaves in the background perfectly!

    I'm on the Tube!

  7. Wow!!! I love your style!! ♡ Beautiful look and pics!!

  9. Love that setting and what you're wearing! Also, I've watched all of Gossip Girl when it aired, even after it started being SO BAD. The first seasons are fun though, and there's pretty good fashion.

  10. absolutely love your style and those shoes,.. I'm in love.
    Hahhaha I know gossip girl will get the best of you, no matter what you do, it wont let you leave.... so yep I've actually binge watched the whole series over summer break, looking back now, i do regret wasting weeks of my summer break for that... XD
    love your blog btw, very inspiring ;))

  11. Your smile is seriously contagious in these photos! And damn girl, show off those legs, haha! And girl, guilty pleasure shows are THE BEST. I'm currently going through some reality T.V. Shhh, don't tell my friends :P

  12. love your pics with smile! you picked such a nice place to shoot! love all fall leaves

  13. I still haven't watched Parks and Recreation, though I'm hearing more and more about it I feel, is this something I have to watch? And ah yes Gossip Girl .. I've actually started watching it AGAIN just now, and I feel everything you say, haha, I don't really like it but also I do? I must be since I'm watching it again, but I don't want to be watching it again, haha
