Jollychic Giveaway, Winner, Dahlia Wolf, And More!

The winner of my Sammydress $20 giftcard is...
Entry # 9 Melissa from ChinkyMel's Corner 
Congrats,I will be contacting you through email soon =)

 As you might have noticed, I am doing my post a bit earlier today.. This is because tomorrow I will be on my way to NY for ~2 weeks!! I am beyond excited to be going there. Unfortunately I will not be posting when I am on vacation, but don't worry, I will leave you guys with a giveaway until I am back!
 I wanted to do a bit more for today's post, but I have been so busy. My attempts to get my college stuff done before vacation, didn't happen, so I will need to bring that with me (it's only a little bit) and I also need to bring all my tax forms as well so I can fill out the fafsa when Jan. 1st hits since I won't be back till the 2nd. I haven't actually packed yet either which is not a good thing to say, but I am multitasking right now between blogging, packing, and eating! I find packing to be super tiring, so blogging helps me relax!

Amazon Christmas PackageI recently ordered some items off of Amazon for my hamster and camera! When I came home from school yesterday, I saw two packages on my door! One from Amazon and one from Dahlia wolf!!! (they have fast shipping because I just got an email from them 2 days ago about the item!) Gosh, you could not believe how excited I was too see the packages. I took them both upstairs and ripped them open!
The first package that I opened was the one from Amazon.

Hazel Hamster Supreme Review

In the amazon box, I had ordered 3 things. I got 2 bags of Hazel hamster food (the other bag is already open and with my hamster!) I needed 2 2lb bags because that is the only way I would have gotten free shipping from Amazon! There is no way I was paying $10 to ship stuff to me when I could buy another bag of food with that money and get free shipping!
This hamster food is the best hamster food on the market for any hamster because of it's nutritional content. I will pair this food with the oxbow pallets and a daily treat and she is going to have the best, and healthiest food possible.It has lots of protein, just the right amount of fat and low sugar content. The only thing that I have to do is pick out the sunflower seeds since I like to hand feed it to her. (That is what I spent a good chunk of my night doing yesterday!)

Canon Wireless Remote Control T3i

The other item in my box is the canon Rc-6 Wireless Remote Controller.This remote is suppose to make taking pictures much easier since it allows you to take pictures without being behind the camera. This is perfect for my when I take my pictures because often times, I don't have someone helping me out and it's hard to get my camera to focus without me standing there! With this remote, hopefully my issue will be solved!
This remote is sold on the canon website for $30 and only ~19-20 on amazon! I was very fortunate because right before checkout, Amazon gave me a promotion (which I am still not clear why) and made the remote 8 something instead of 19!!  Could it be because I recently brought a camera from them?

Dahlia Wolf Review
Don't mind the stickers.. they are for privacy reasons =)
My second package that I received was from Dahlia Wolf. Remember how in my last post , I mentioned being contacted by Dahlia Wolf and finding out that they had chosen to design a clothing piece inspired by one of my post! They contacted me on Tuesday this week asking for my address and by Thursday afternoon, they had already sent the item to me! I was beyond ecstatic to receive it. I did not expect to get it so quickly!

Dahlia Wolf Box
This box is beautiful!
Dahlia Wolf Box

Inside the package, I found a very fancy looking black box with the words Dahlia Wolf on it. I opened the box and inside, I found my top! It was packaged so nicely and everything just felt so professionally done. I could not believe that it was mine! The top is even called "The Mindy Top!"
Here is a quick look at it-

Dahlia Wolf the Mindy Top

Dahlia Wolf the Mindy Top

The top is adorable!!!! I love the pattern on it a lot. It reminds me of tribal print and the bright colors are going to be perfect in the spring/summer! I might even try to winterize it a bit because this would be awesome to wear now! The material of the top is a lot better than I had thought it would be. It's thick and pretty nice quality. The top is even lined which is something I worried about because I had no idea what kind of bra I should wear under this... but now I realized, you don't need one!
On the side of the top is the zipper. It goes all the way down. The zipper is quite smooth and pretty easy to get on! I am in love with my top and I can't wait to do an outfit post for it! (it'll probably be the first post I do when I come back from my vacation!)

Jollychic $100 bonus Giveaway

I have one more thing to tell you guys about!! While I am away on vacation, I decided to leave you guys with an $100 GIVEAWAY to http://www.jollychic.com. I was contacted by them asking me to host this giveaway on my blog and I thought why not? I could run the giveaway while I am on vacation and choose the winner when I get back! How perfect is that! 
a Rafflecopter giveaway

  3. wow, good luck on finishing your college applications! I remember having to go through that process last year - hopefully it doesn't distract you too much from celebrating the holidays :)
    I've never used a remote for a camera before but the concept always interested me, so I look forward to hearing how you like it when you get back.

    1. hehe it didn't. Once christmas hit, I was done with everything and could have fun till New Years!! You are so lucky to be over with them.
      I personally really do like the remote. It works well, though it's kinda of hard to hide in photos. I will be reviewing it in about a week or 2 after more use with it!

  15. Yay! Another giveaway! :) which is perfect for me since I think I have gone broke shopping for all my friends.
    One item I'd love: http://www.jollychic.com/p/slim-fit-warm-pockets-long-winter-coats-with-fuax-fur-collar-g17929.html

    Anyway, ''the Mindy Top'' looks amazing! I also have a bustier and for the summer I'd just wear it with shorts and a cardigan when it gets slightly chilly. During the autumn.. hmm.. maybe a leather jacket with leggings? I still haven't gotten the chance to mix and match with my bustier yet. :P Hope you'll have a fun trip in New York (take lots of pics! :D) and we'll be missing your posts. Until then, have a merry Christmas and happy holidays! :) xx

  31. Hey Mindy,

    I hope you have an amazing time in New York!! I've been to so many different states but I have never been to NY (yet). I've always wanted to go though. Take lots of pics for us!! :) That's so cool that they designed a shirt especially for you. You're so lucky! It's crazy what awesome things happen in the blogging world. I started out just blogging about my personal life so I could look back later, and it turned into me blogging mostly for other people with similar interests as me. As bloggers we end up with a lot of really cool opportunities we wouldn't get otherwise. Anyway, thanks for the giveaway and I hope your vacation is awesome!!

    xo, Sarah
    Hustla, baby.
