New Headshots Alt Summit

Since my blog photo was a selfie taken in my basement after returning from the gym (eeeek…can we say sweaty and gross…bet you’ll never look at that picture the same, huh?). I decided y’all don’t need to be lookin’ at that anymore. House Of Hipsters needed a little update. Besides, you’ve been looking at this same photo for almost 3 years now. It’s about time.

House Of Hipsters is Moving!!!!!

Woah! Dude! Where on Earth have you been? Are you alive? Are you still blogging? WTH? Well, shizzz just got real you guys! House Of Hipsters is moving…like we are packing everything up in boxes and gettin’ along little doggies, we’re outta here. What am I talking about? Confused? Here’s the deets.

Last summer, The Boy sent me a listing for an over the top Mid Century Modern home, in our price range, in a sweet area. The house was, hmmm…how do I say this? Not good. In fact, I think my exact words were, “This place is MCM overload.” Apparently there was something as too much MCM. The kiddos were napping so I poked around a bit more. Low and behold, I hit the motherload! The house I knew had to be mine. Open concept, Mid Century Modern, glass panels for rails on the stairs, totally impractical and scream, “money pit”. Yup, I had to have it.

My Favorite Kitchens of 2015

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been a pinning machine, and the one room that keeps kicking me into high gear is the kitchen. Do you know how many beautiful images there are of kitchens? White kitchens, dark kitchens, gray kitchens, marble countertops, stainless steel, brass pulls, butcher block, oh my. I mean seriously, if I had a Pinterest kitchen, I’d be Betty Freakin’ Crocker! So what exactly makes a kitchen a Pinterest-worthy kitchen? Well, let’s take a looksy at some of my favorite kitchens of 2015 and discuss.

Favorite Kitchens of 2015 Favorite Kitchens of 2015 - This in my opinion was the best kitchen of 2015. The black and white two toned cabinetry is a perfect mix of drama and fresh and clean. It's very modern yet the industrial stainless steel stove adds a vintage feel. I also love the floating shelves.via

New Year’s Eve Etiquette Guide to Hostess Gifts

When I hosted my very first New Year’s Eve party, I was just past the age of keg stands in a basement. At the time, I was dating a guy who was a bit older than me, and his friends were invited. Friends who had apparently read the etiquette guide to hostess gifts. One by one they walked through the door handing me pretty packages pretty packages containing cheese boards, wine, scented candles, fancy soaps, and champagne! I’m sorry what!?!?! No one had told me about hostess gifts. The only gift I had been bringing to parties was a beer bong. This gift-giving thing had made all the cooking and cleaning and running around nonsense a whole lot more tolerable. Bring. It. On.
