Have you noticed the cute little buttons on the right side of my blog? Those folks are my sponsors, and just like the faux commercials on PBS say, this blog is made possible by THEM. I’ve joked before that blogging is an expensive hobby, but really, it is. From conferences to internet hosting to graphic designers to stock photos to business cards, the costs add up.

That’s why I’m extremely thankful to the generous folks who support Giving Up on Perfect, whether by sponsoring me with a monthly ad, clicking on (and purchasing through) affiliate links or just reading my posts and sharing them with your friends.

Today I’m starting a new series to introduce to my awesome sponsors, beginning with The Hip Hostess.

The Hip Hostess is owned by Debbie and Andrea, a mother-daughter combo who are on a mission to combine simple, contemporary style with fabulous fabrics to create a “couture in the kitchen” look that today`s modern woman will want and actually wear.

Check out that adorable cherry apron up above. I don’t know about you, but I would definitely wear that!

The Hip Hostess ladies have been kind enough to offer all Giving Up on Perfect readers a 15% discount for the month of October. Just use the code PERFECT and get to shopping! Wouldn’t a cute apron be an awesome Christmas gift for someone on your shopping list?!

What should you watch next?


Every month, we are bombarded with new TV series and movies—and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to watch! (I know, I know, what a problem to have!) I'm here to help. My monthly Watch Guides list out all the returning series, new series, and new movies, along with premiere dates and where to watch them. Plus, I tell you my personal picks for the month to help you narrow it all down.

Drop your name and email here, and I'll send you this month's Watch Guide right away!

(Signing up gives me permission to email you. But I will never, ever send you spam or junk. Who has time for that?!)
