Hello friends and welcome back. We know this week brought about a lot of uncertainty and anxiety, so we hope you are staying safe and finding ways to foster joy. That said, THANK YOU for continuing to support the blog. We couldn’t be more grateful for this community and you guys are the reason we continue to do do what we do. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now, if you are interested, here’s what EHD has been enjoying this week:
First up, today’s home tour (via Remodelista) is what rustic townhouse dreams are made of. The warm tones and textiles are just what our eyeballs needed this week.
Finding a show that two adults, a 6 and 4 year can all happily watch is challenging. But when we found LEGO Masters is was the perfect show for all of us. It’s funny, so imaginative and all legos. I highly recommend it.
These sweatpants are Brian’s favorite. He says they are super comfortable, don’t cut in at the waist, are perfect for all-day wearing and I (Emily) think he looks very cute in them.
From Mallory: As you know gyms are closed, so I’ve been trying more at-home workouts. The problem is I don’t have any at home workout gear because WHERE would I store it in my studio apartment??? So my boyfriend and I are using hairdryers as ankle weights and wine bottles as dumbbells over here. Please enjoy my instagram highlight titled “QUARANTINED” if you want to see what I mean.
From Ryann: Well guys, I did it. I found my ideal WFH slipper. They are so comfortable and breathable and I LOVE the waffle knit fabric. I will be living in these for the foreseeable future.
From Caitlin: I’ve been playing a lot of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp on my phone this week. It’s free and there’s something SO RELAXING about crossing tasks off, building furniture, and designing your own space. I also play it with the sound on which is really saying something (like, I can’t remember the last time I took my phone off mute). Does anyone have a Nintendo Switch Lite? I’m considering ordering one (it’s 100 bucks cheaper than the regular, and it comes in colors!) so I can play New Horizons in full.
From Veronica: Netflix has a party feature for those on quarantine who would still love to connect with friends and family. You can watch with everyone online and playback is synchronized. And it is super easy to install!
Speaking of Netflix, from Julie: If you are looking to binge-watch something a bit more lighthearted these days check out 100 Humans on Netflix. One of the co-hosts on the show is Alie Ward who also has an amazing podcast called Ologies which I highly recommend (and Emily knows her personally and vouches that she is RAD).
From Jess: Taking care of my skin has been one way for me to feel a sense of normalcy and a tiny bit of luxury (of which I am so grateful for). This lotion is a true miracle worker and makes my skin feel so good. At only $13 it’s an absolute go to that I do not take for granted. Also, this article tells you all the different ways it can be used. I will be trying ALL of them.
From Sara: This is the webpage I’m going to be scouring this weekend to help me make the most of what I’ve got in my fridge and pantry.
That is all for today so now we’d love to hear from you. What has helped you regain some normalcy this week? Do you have any tips for staying at home? Let us know and stay safe xx
