Good morning all! It’s been a couple of months since my last blog post, I am terribly sorry for the delay, it’s been a crazy couple of months. In the 5-6 months since my last blog entry I have gotten married, expanded Urban Hippie LLC, and have be enjoying a beautiful summer with my family.
Just to give everyone a recap, Urban Hippie LLC specializes in, refurbishing and creating home décor, bath essentials, and apparel. We recently have started taking on jobs for interior design. We are able to come into your home or place of business and transform it to your vision and also use your current pieces and restore them into new decor. I am loving these amazing opportunities and feel so fortunate that people love our style and work that UH is being sought after.
Another incredible update is that Urban Hippie LLC has been featured in THREE publications for our work at a May wedding we supplied decor for! This has been such a huge honor to be recognized across the country. We offer decor for special event as well as making timeless bridal brooch bouquets that last not only during your special day but for years to come.
The publications that have featured us are, Borrowed & Blue , Modern Weddings, and in September we will be featured in Glittery Bride! (I will post the link when it becomes available.)

One of my favorite DIY is turning a typical ordinary mirror into a work of art!
I love the idea of a mirror as an accent above my dry bar so I added some chalk paint “Cheers” and made it look not so odd to have a mirror so high up.
Really all I did was grab a chalk marker that I found at my local craft store for $5.00 and practiced how I wanted the word “Cheers” to look and then took a leap of faith and wrote it on the mirror.
DON’T worry if you mess up, just take a little Windex and water and the chalk will come off as easy as 1 2 3. Let dry, and try again!
I am such a fan of dolling up mirrors and even old windows with chalk paint, I even created one for my sister’s waxing business so she can add her services on it! It’s really the perfect and easiest DIY.
To do a window or glass it’s probably the easiest DIY to do because you can type of whatever you want to write on the mirror/glass tape it on the back and take your chalk pen/marker and just trace the letters from the printed page taped on the back and than Voila! You are now ready to hang a unique piece of art that you created yourself!
So today is a day that I never saw coming. Maybe I played out in my head a couple of times before I would go to sleep on a Sunday evening anticipating a too early Monday morning without coffee but never did I actually imagine that my scariest nightmare could happen. 29, last year of my 20’s, fighting off this adulthood I am so obviously in but naive to really accept it, engaged, home owner, and aspiring teeshirt designer? refurbished furniturer? animal lover? designer? etc and etc on whatever else I feel the need to be, faced to figure out what to do career wise for the rest of my life.
How does one figure these things out? I never really understood how someone can wake up every single day and smile at the idea of going to work. The people that say they do, who are you? where do you work? and are they hiring? Lately going into the office I started wondering, did my God really put me on this earth to work a 8-5 job and not feel like I’m contributing to the success of the awards others are reaping? and then I was faced with the decision, do I accept this or do I change it up completely?
