We’ve all seen those posts about THE home decor Instagram accounts that you should be following and guess what…you already do. We all know the heavy hitters like Emily Henderson, Justina Blakeney, and Studio McGee, but I’ve got some hidden gems for you. I’m gonna bet that there is at least one account in today’s list that will be new to you. Up for the challenge? Let’s go!
Oh do I have pretties to share with you today! Today I’m sharing a few things that made me ooooh, aaaah, and giggle. So if you’re looking to take a quick break from work or if you’re avoiding that pile of laundry, let’s dig in!

2019 has been the year of growth for House Of Hipsters, and to grow you must learn. Last fall I got into the habit of listening to podcasts in the car. Any drive longer than 15 minutes was considered an opportunity for business growth. So today I’m sharing my top 5 podcasts for entrepreneurs and bloggers.
Do you ever have one of those projects where you work sooooooooo hard planning and then nothing seems to go right? I’m smack dab in the middle of planning a renovation, and instead of tackling each issue one by one, I’ve been sticking my head in the sand, hoping it’ll just work itself out. Worst plan ever. After watching me slowly crack, The Boy finally said, “okay let’s fix this together”. We jotted down pretty much everything we could think of, and srsly, I felt much better. If you’re in the middle of a renovation, you know first hand, it can be exciting yet super stressful. I don’t want you to feel crazed like I did, so I turned our notes into a free downloadable renovation budget checklist.

Have you ever defriended someone on social media? I’ve done it many times on Instagram. That platform for me is work, and I need to stay focused. So if you’re a friend reading this, you now know why I don’t follow that portion of your digital life. Momma don’t have time for rabbit holes.
Unfollowing, for me, on Instagram isn’t that big of a deal. It’s mostly brands I’ve outgrown or a former Instagrammer who now posts dogs, food, and babies versus tables and chairs.
I also have this strange rule about not following over 1000 accounts on Instagram, and when I hit that milestone, I go through my list and purge. Strange and weird, without any reasoning I know. Yes, that has resulted with a few nastygrams in my DM box, but srsly??? You’ve probably never met me. BTDubs, I’m presently sitting at 999…the great purge is a comin’. I’m not being mean. Think of it as hitting refresh.
A couple of months ago, I made the decision to cleanse my Facebook friends list, which was a first. My feed was just depressing every time I scrolled…it too needed a bit of a refresh. If you weren’t active…gone. If you whined and were depressing…gone. Posted political garbage…gone. Friends, family members, classmates, former co-workers — no one was off limits. BEST. DECISION. EVER.
Now that being said, I do believe there’s etiquette to defriending someone on social media. Let’s take a closer look at how and when to silently close the Facebook door.
