[CLOSED] GIVEAWAY-Givenchy Jewelry

holy moly, that hiatus just felt like an eternity... but I'm back! sort of.

here's an insta-update.

(1. my dorm room  2. after scavenger hunt  3. waiting for gossip girl cast [saw Ed]  4. chilling at Union Square  5-6. New School block party  7. new babies - sam edelman booties  8. Jack Ryan filming near our dorm)

The move to NYC was a big (somewhat big) success!! Everything is still surreal, and it has been absolutely amazing. I haven't been updating though because I'm having some technical problems with my camera, and I no longer have a photographer. ... and I left my tripod at home. sad story. 

BUT! this is not what this post is about. A few weeks back, ze blog turned one, and I promised you guys I would host a giveaway to commemorate the occasion. So here it is. :) almost a month later.. haha

win this
Givenchy Jewelry
(** do not be fooled. not real diamond/pearls.)
Note the blog name, and the star-shaped earrings. not a coincidence. mwahaha
...

I'll try my best to blog consistently in the future, but it's the first week of school, and I'm already swamped with homework. Parsons is really no joke. But I'll definitely be updating my Instagram often so go follow me on that! :) This past year of blogging has been really awesome, and once again, thanks to all of you, current and future followers. You guys are the best :)

  15. Hello hello Jaya!
    I just came across your blog yesterday and I definitely really like it! :)
    You have lovely style and I cannot believe you spotted Ed Westwick!! So how do you know where the Gossip Girl cast is again??

    It's been years and years since I've been to New York.
    The last time I went, I was only about 4 years old so I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that I don't remember much about the city!
    Even though I haven't visited NYC in so long, there's still so much to love about the city.
    I think what I like about it most is the optimism that surrounds the city itself. Back in the day, before the advent of planes, people immigrating to America would go through New York. To them, it represented a new beginning, a better life for their children, and hope above all else.
    Even today, New York is seen as the city that never sleeps, where all these big and exciting things happen. Though some may say that New York is too extreme, I think there's still so much beauty that it holds. After all these years, New York is still where dreams come true!

    Thanks sooo much for this lovely giveaway Jaya!
    Those earrings are so cool (I love how they tie in with your blog name) and that bracelet is way too elegantly gorgeous! <3
    Good luck to everyone entering this amazing giveaway!!!

  97. I love that in New York, nothing you do is weird. Everything is accepted in this strange way, because New Yorkers have seen it all. I feel so at home in a world that's as fast-paced as I am, and as chill in its tendency to judge as I wish I could be.
