TC Charton, the only North American brand that designs and produces Asian-fit eyewear, has released a new style for Fall – the Shaunee, a subtle cat-eye frame in a dark acetate, topped with a kiss of molded, lightweight steel in a leopard print.
We’re loving this pair – and yes – we’re giving one away! To enter (you may enter up to four times per method!):
1. Follow us on Instagram @audreymagazine. Instagram a picture “I <3 Audrey Magazine.” – and tag us and #tccharton.

Info about TC Charton:
Alexandra Peng gets inspiration by studying Asian faces wherever she goes. One style does not fit all Asians. Each of her frames addresses certain Asian features; lower nose bridges, higher cheekbones and wider or narrower faces make it challenging for many Asians to find proper fitting eyewear. TC Charton gives the Asian consumer a myriad of choices with color schemes and patterns, which complement the skin tone.
TC Charton ophthalmic frames and sunglasses are available at fine optical stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at www.tc-charton.com
We’re giving some gifts away this winter – here’s the start of day one!
Pitch Perfect (featuring Hana Mae Lee who’s also in our Winter 2012-13 issue!)
College student Beca (Anna Kendrick) finds herself part of a clique (including Hana Mae Lee) where the only thing the girls have in common is how good they sound when they sing together. The laugh out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect is on Blu-ray, DVD and Ultraviolet December 18! www.pitchperfectmovie.com

I heard somewhere that up to 70% of people receive gifts they don’t really want for Christmas. I know a gift is a gift but for those that are pretty practical, it causes the extra headache of re-gifting (which has to be very strategic, mind you) or returning or exchanging.
So the Asians may be onto something when we give money in red envelopes to celebrate our holidays.
This year, the lucky rabbit makes way for the prosperous dragon as more than 14.7 million Asian-Americans prepare to celebrate the Lunar New Year on January 23rd. To mark the “Year of Good Fortune,” American Express is offering a limited-edition Year of the Dragon Gift Card that features the traditional depiction of a dragon. This is another step by American Express in celebrating and embracing diversity. The limited-edition Year of the Dragon Gift Card from American Express follows the success of last year’s Year of the Rabbit Lunar New Year, Diwali and ¡Felicidades! Gift Cards.
Take a look… isn’t it festive?

I’ll admit, collecting hotel shampoos and conditioners has become a sort of a hobby of mine. I just love their compact size for traveling! (Although, irony of irony, when I go to a new place, I usually don’t use my looted hotel toiletries, I use the new ones in the new hotel).
This winter, I’m not going to hide away and hibernate, I’m planning on doing some hefty traveling and what better set to carry with me than Hugo Naturals Winter Retreat Pack?
Available in Vanilla & Sweet Orange and French Lavender, each pack sells for $14.99 and includes:

Any die-hard fans of Harry Potter out there? Well, here is our weekly giveaway that is just for you HP fans out there.
“These are DARK TIMES,” is what it says on the T-shirt that Audrey is giving away this week along with a USB drive in the shape of the first horcrux discovered by Dumbledore and Harry. The necklace doubles as a USB drive with a serpent on the front. Both perfect for an everyday item as well as a perfectly planned outfit for the opening weekend of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I just recently came out in theaters as a box office hit. This isn’t just in the United States, but all over the world. A cumulative amount of $330.1 million dollars was earned in the global box office in its opening weekend. Not really surprising when its based off of the best selling novels by J.K. Rowling.
Many of you guys are probably asking, “Why would they make us wait for part II?” or “Why is there even a part II?” Well maybe the answer from Daniel Radcliffe will quench your curiosity. “I think it’s the only way you can do it, without cutting out a huge portion of the book. There have been compartmentalized subplots in the other books that have made them easier to cut, but the seventh book doesn’t really have any subplots. It’s one driving, pounding story from the word go.”
To win this better-than-Black Fridaygiveaway, all you have to do it post comments to three of Audrey‘s other blog posts and leave a comment after this post telling us which posts you commented on. A tweet = an extra chance to win. (Just tag @audreymagazine so we’ll be able to see it.) The giveaway ends Wednesday, December 1 @ 11:59pm. No international friends, sorry. Good luck!

If there’s one thing I can’t do, it’s hair. I wish I was good at it, but I really suck at it. I am envious of women who know how to do their hair effortlessly, especially since I have to wrestle with mine to even get it up in a practical bun. My kid sister, on the other hand, is a pro at it and can do her hair like it’s her job.
If I had this little goody, maybe I’d be a better ‘do do-er. FHI Heat, the name in hair styling products, offers all sorts of high-end hair help, and their Go 1″ Styling Iron doesn’t disappoint.
The iron is not just a straightener — it’s a ceramic tourmaline styling powerhouse, so it’s actually good for your hair. It includes all the necessary features of a great styling iron (ceramic tourmaline plates, a wide adjustable heat range, extra long cord, etc.). Plus, it’s a handy size with dual voltage international plug for all you travelers. The Go Styling Iron comes in bright fun colors such as Girly-Girl and Hot-Hot-Hot — yours will come in the fabulous Mermaid Me hue.
I know I can’t do hair, but I can do math. The FHI Heat Go Styling Iron would cost you $79.99 retail, but this week, you could get yours for nil. Even this hair ignoramus knows that’s a pretty sweet deal.
Don’t wait till September 22, 11:59 p.m. to comment. Retweet for an additional entry and you must have a U.S. addy to win. (Apologies to our international readers!)
Another TGIFree Friday giveaway, another happy reader. This time, it’s reader Selena who lucked out with Manicures R Mobile‘s specialty mani/pedi delivery service. (I am so jealous! Seriously! Hook an editor up!) Selena chose to get the Minx treatment, where a thin tissue-like layer is applied to the fingernails. It lasts longer and gives you a color no regular nail polish could. Here’s what Selena had to say:
I was able to get the mani/pedi service done from Manicures R Mobile. Amy, the manicurist, was wonderful! She was so nice and professional. I enjoyed the special treatment I received. I chose their most popular Minx color: Silver Lightning! It came out so shiny and amazing! Thanks again to Audrey Mag for hooking a girl up! Best, Selena
