I’m Bringing The Scrunchie Back

If you’ve ever seen the Sex and the City episode where Carrie slams Berger for mentioning a scrunchie in his novel Hurricane Pandora, then you will understand the reason for this post.

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.

The Honest Company Giveaway

Wow, we haven’t had a giveaway on House Of Hipsters for a couple months now. The Honest Company thought it was about time, and so did I. While at Alt Summit, I popped into the powder room to freshen up. Low and behold, it was like The Honest Company had a mini explosion of loveliness! Hand lotions, mouthwash, lip balms, hand sanitizer, books, soaps…you name it, it was there to be sampled. I dropped my business card into a fishbowl for a chance to win an Essentials Bundle. I might have given it a tiny kiss before it left my fingertips and made a wish. Guess what!?! I won! And you can too!
