Hipster Barbie is more authentic, gritty, down to earth, and "real," than you and me both, and you can follow her #inspirational photo thread @socalitybarbie. She spends her weekends among rocks and rivers and the tall, tall trees that emblematize the Pacific Northwest...aka the mecca of "authenticity." She poses with artfully messy hair, she effortlessly clutches frothy cappuccinos and lattes in white mugs, undoubtedly in the midst of topping her steel-cut oats with raw coconut sugar and matcha-infused almond milk.

Hailing from Berlin, Europe’s hipster mecca, Denitza Todorova’s music is reminiscent of MIA, and she says she’s inspired by the likes of J Dilla and Sun Ra. Read More

Definitely not standard hipster fare. For some reason, though, the young adult series has really struck a chord in my circle of tattooed, bespectacled, bicycle-riding twenty-something friend group. We can't get enough of Katniss Everdeen.
