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.

So here’s a short little post about my new headshot.

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!

Warby Parker 2015 Spring Collection

I’ve worn glasses since the second grade and consider myself an eyeglasses connoisseur. I remember my first day well; it was summer and the first day wearing them I had dreaded baseball practice with a bunch of boys. My comeback was going to be, “Four eyes are better then two” cuz that would show ’em, right? I arrived at practice nervous and unsure about them. Surprisingly, no one really cared, and I eventually learned to love them. Every couple years I was allowed to pick out a new pair which for me was like Christmas. Glasses were and still are expensive. Enter Warby Parker. Their glasses ooze cool and come with an affordable price tag…they start at $95. If only they existed back in the 80s, I would have been in hipster heaven. If you don’t know who they are, you might live under a rock, but don’t you worry you’re pretty little eyes. I’m here to get you in the know pronto.

DIY Vintage Headpieces

IT’S DAY 6! I don’t mean to shout, BUT IT’S DAY 6!!!!!! I hope you guys have had as much fun with the Wildwood Speakeasy New Year’s Eve party as we have. I know I’ve said this before, but seeing it all come together has been so exciting. This past week has been like Christmas every day. Each morning I race to my computer to see what Laura from Avery Street Design and Grace from The Big Reveal have written and created. Since we aren’t neighbors, we really don’t get to see the full post until it goes live. Just a couple texts of pictures to make sure we’re all on board. Each post has been so insanely beautiful, I can’t even stand it. These ladies are truly talented and working with them has been just dreamy. But alas, all good things must come to an end. For our grand finale, Grace is going to wrap things up with a tutorial on gorgeous DIY Vintage Headpieces.
