Hello friends, and welcome back. This week, we invited you into Emily’s living room here AND here (with lots of sofa and vintage chair talk), we made a case for leveling up your tile with grout colors, Brian stopped by and gave us insight on being married to an influencer, and Emily reviewed a ton of boots. What a week. But now, we’re back with your regularly scheduled programming: The Link Up. Let’s get to it:
From Emily: “This book, by artists Jesse Chamberlain and Jimmy Marble (whom I love and have followed for years) is just what the title, Dream Baby Dream, suggests: dreamy. I actually bought one of his pieces for a Secrets From a Stylist episode years back. It’s incredibly weird and cool, but with a happiness about it that is totally inspiring. And fun fact, I knew them both separately before they met and got married (and had the MOST inspiring wedding) and now have a baby. It’s a great book/gift for anyone who loves inspirational and out of the box art and photography.”
Also from Emily: “Thimble sent some dresses to Birdie and now that she is only in ‘dress phase,’ I’m SO glad that I have some that are just incredibly cute (and handmade) versus the Elsa and Anna nightgowns she wants to leave the house in (which we don’t really protest because, WHY?). And while I’m on that note, Pepper is a small kids company that makes the cutest stuff and now that the kids aren’t growing out of things so quickly, I might actually buy some.”
Jess finally got a facial after about 10 years and her facialist highly recommended Naturopathica’s Sweet Cherry Brightening Enzyme Peel for a deeper clean that helps the years of sun damage and generally brightens. She uses it twice a week and LOVES how good it makes her skin look and feel.
Peaky Blinders is Veronica’s favorite show right now, and it’s finally back on Netflix for season 5. The show follows a crime family in the 1900s lead by Thomas Shelby, played by Cillian Murphy, and it’s just so good and binge worthy.
If you are looking for even more spooky cinema, this is a great list of horror comedies to watch this month. Sara loves getting into the spooky mood, but she is also TERRIFIED of actually being scared. So a good horror-comedy is her go to. Harry Potter is also an all-season option (duh).
From Arlyn: “I’m a meat eater, but I like to have at least a day or two where I cook without it, so I tried this vegetarian bolognese recipe this past week from Pasta Social Club (one of my favorite accounts) and I’m OBSESSED with it. It uses Beyond Meat, but I’m sure it could easily be swapped with another meat substitute…or just ground beef, TBH. It came together in under an hour with deep flavors that would normally take me HOURS to get in a ragu.”
Mallory recently found a boutique that has a bomb sale section and super cute clothes. It’s called Stevie Sister. “I just got the cutest jumpsuit and skirt on sale (for 40% off the already reduced sale price). Bargain shoppers unite!”
Veronica bought these boots after Emily tried them for the boots review post yesterday, and it’s safe to say we all LOVE them, and we want to buy immediately. From Veronica: “They are a chunky boot but are surprisingly lightweight when worn and you can’t even tell they have a slight heel, which is great because you can wear them all day comfortably.”
If you are a suffer of dry skin like Julie, try this Burt’s Bees Hydrating Overnight mask. From Julie: “I’ve used this once so far but woke up looking less haggard than usual. Millennial’s swear by it cause it has their favorite ingredient, Avocados.”
That is all we have for you lovely people today, and EHD is OOO tomorrow (so no blog post), but be sure to come back Tuesday for something special. See you then xx
