I Make Emily Henderson Cry

Oh sweet Emily, you recently wrote about the kind of disaster that is your family room. And I gotta tell ya, I really needed to read this. Yes, you might have been sitting on the most perfect vintage blue Persian rug that you bought for $12 that alludes me and wearing the most perfect plaid shirt with the most perfect brown boots not tucked into straight leg jeans that I can never seem to pull off without feeling like I’m stomping around like a tyrannosaurus rex cowgirl…sorry, rambling, I digress, focus…but you taught me that it’s ok to have a room that’s not completely perfect and still showcase it on House Of Hipsters…even if it makes you cry a tiny bit.

Many of you have asked for a house tour. A wider look at the nook of disaster in the living room. I’ve had some emails asking which coffee table I wound up purchasing. Did I add curtains to the living room? Well, this living room makeover even if not quite perfected will answer a few of those unanswered questions.

Plus Sign Pattern

While wandering aimlessly around Target the other day, I was stopped dead in my tracks by these plus sign pattern sheets. Love at first sight people! Simple, elegant, and just plain lovely! Here’s the clincher, king sized sheets for only $38.99! Hello ladies, get in m’cart! Of course I bought two sets, right? I mean, you can’t have enough sheets. Besides, look at them! They’re adorable! They’re so cute and surprisingly soft, I don’t even want to get out of bed today (or maybe I just don’t want to go to spin class). I digress. Anyhoo, let’s get a little crazy with plus signs…you’ve been warned.

Bluelounge at Target Giveaway!!!

I briefly mentioned in my last post, I’ve been working on a separate work area in the house dedicated to the blog. Mainly a separate desk space and small photography studio. Life gets busy though and that’s how disaster zones happen. I start to focus too much on the new office space and not as much on the everyday space. Suddenly, there are cables lying everywhere…on the floor, wires here, wires there, tangled up in crazy. Where’s my laptop? Under the sofa? Awesome! Ya, not so much. Can’t find my phone charger…as a matter of fact, I can’t seem to even find my phone. Have you seen my keys? Messy, messy, messy.

I needed some practical solutions for my everyday problems. Enter Bluelounge with their rad new line for Target. They had everything I needed for my home electronics organization at a great value. Not to mention, they were also easy on the eyes. It’s hard to lose when you have pretty things to look at, am I right? Anyhoo, I loaded up the cart and couldn’t wait to get back to the house. Wires be gone! Keys be found! Not only that, to get the word out, Bluelounge has partnered with House Of Hipsters to give away one of everything from the complete Target line! THAT’S $170.00 VALUE!

Kii might be one of my favorite items. I just upgraded my iPhone 4 to the iPhone 6. Sweet, right? Totally, but Apple changed their connectors when they launched the iPhone 5. I suddenly realized I only had one charger, and I came to that sudden realization at work while my one and only charger was an hour away, at home…sad face. I needed to buy another one…well, probably more like another four. One for my work office, one for my home office, one for upstairs and one for the kitchen. Or, I could buy Kii. It’s portable and allows me to charge and sync without the need of a cable. Kii is a lightweight USB to Apple connector that fits on your keychain. How cool is that?
