Beautiful Distractions No. 39
Wow, it’s been a crazy few weeks. I wound up coming down with Covid, but thankfully with being vaxxed and boosted, I didn’t get too sick, and now I just have a lingering cough. It put me behind on the closet makeover, but we’re kicking things into high gear over here. These are a few things that caught my eye while quarantined in my bedroom.
Did you know the Mona Lisa was caked? Yup! A climate activist dressed up as an elderly woman in a wheelchair threw cake and roses on the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. Thankfully it’s behind glass, but seriously? This is why we can’t have nice things. We live in a crazy world right now.
Did you know legendary makeup artist Bobbi Brown has a new makeup line called Jones Road? Ummmm ya, it’s going viral on TikTok, and if you are a woman over 40, you want to check out What The Foundation. You don’t need a primer but if you want one, Javon Ford shares a few to try in this TikTok. You know I ordered the foundation and Bobbi raved about the Shimmer Face Oil, so that’s on its way too.
There’s an old saying, “if you have to ask the price you probably can’t afford it”. Well, that’s probably the case with these planters, but shazam they are beauties! I found these planters over on Indigenus. These beauties are called Aarde by Sabastian Herkner. I’m obsessed.
I’m normally not a big dupe promoter especially when it comes to a piece being artist-made, but I’m making an exception with the next three features. The Oo Table Lamp Rough is giving me pause. It’s smaller in size at around 17″ and a bit smoother on the surface, but for 50% off, I kinda want to try it out.
The same lamp company has a Mads Caprani floor lamp dupe that is an immediate yes, no questions asked. I recently saw an original go for over $1500 at auction and a dealer offered me another for $2400. It’s almost 6′ tall and something I’m willing to take a chance on.
Before signing off, I wanted to mention that I’m one of Google’s paid early testers for their Thank with Google pilot program. It’s an experimental feature where you can purchase a virtual sticker showing appreciation for the content you find here on House Of Hipsters. After purchasing your sticker, you can also add a personal message to me. These virtual stickers help support this website and mean the world to me.
You can find the Thank with Google feature in multiple places on this website including the sidebar and at the beginning of each blog post. If you try it out, please let me know your thoughts. And as always, thank you for supporting me and my little corner of the internet.
