Thank you for being here on my little corner of the internet.  


I'm Hannah Hippe.


And I'm trying to find the balance of living simply in a hectic world. 

The media tries to sell us instant happiness via the latest tech gadget, fancy car, or clothes. The "hustle and bustle" lifestyle is sold to us as the norm. We're always looking to what's next and not what's already in front of us...Life is not made to be felt like we're living it on autopilot.  

In reality, what makes us happier is enjoying things like...

- being in the present moment

- connecting with ourselves on a deeper level - to our purpose and values

- intentionally choosing to slow down and just, BE

pure & simple's purpose is to create a space where intentionality and simple living collide - to help you lead a life where you're in control; not your to-do list, the latest fad, or diet hack. 


pure & simple is a culmination of passions for intentional living, wholesome food, herbal remedies, and essential oils. 

Why did I create pure & simple?


Over the years I've simplified my lifestyle, from my belongings to what I consume - mentally, physically, and spiritually. I created pure & simple to share my tips and tricks in a way that makes it simple for you to follow along and implement habits that will lead you to a more intentional life. 

I am nowhere near perfect...but that's the beauty of it. Life is a balance. And learning to create the balance that works best for you is key. For me, I love nutritious food and healthy treats, buuuuut I also will enjoy wine on occasion or a cheeseburger with fries. I like to look at things logistically and research science-backed data, annnd I love dipping into things like manifestation, chakras, and crystals. 

The world is not black and white. There are sooo many pockets of gray, and finding them should be embraced, not judged. 


Invest in yourself to make the changes that are right for you, one step at a time. 

More about me. 

I'm a content creator by day, herbal enthusiast by night.


I currently work for a mental health company writing articles and managing social media. I have a Bachelor's in Marketing Communications and a minor in Political Science. 

I've always had a passion for health and wellness, but I never truly practiced a healthy balance of habits until a couple of years ago. I used to dream of what I wanted my life to be like, all while eating a bag of potato chips on the couch (don't get me wrong, I still eat chips!). Now I actually work for what I want, all while implementing a healthy balance that works for me and my body. 

I want you to find that balance, too.
