Welcome welcome welcome to this week’s link up, we’re your hosts, the EHD staffers. If you listen to Armchair Expert then I hope you read that line in Dax Shepard’s voice. If you don’t listen, give it a go because we can’t stop talking about it around here…still. It’s another lovely Sunday and we’ve got some lovely little links for you guys, so as per usual let’s dive right in…
This week’s home tour is the home of a celebrity you most definitely know, but between the (literal) glowing entry, an insane bathtub, and a neon sign of …well you’ll find out…you HAVE to check this one out. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, we’d love to hear 🙂
From Emily: While I’ll always regret selling Birdie’s vintage daybed, I was so happy to find an affordable version to replace it from World Market. It’s SO very cute and looks so good in her room. Bringing back all the happy memories…
Speaking of World Market, they’re having a WICKED sale this weekend only (it ends on Monday!). Members get 30% off EVERYTHING plus an extra 10% off curbside pickup. Talk about a great sale.
Did someone say Sister, Sister?? There’s a new Esty collection out and we truly could not be more excited. Feast yer eyes on our new obsession: The Tia Mowry x Etsy Collection
From Jess: In case you missed Design Sponge’s talk with artist and activist, Malene Barnett, it was a really important and great conversation on cultural appropriation. So please go have a listen! Malene also recommended one of her favorite books on African textiles that I bought via her Amazon shop. We need to be far more conscious and educating ourselves is the first step in fixing this problem.
Also from Emily: We’ve found a new family show that is making our kids eat more protein, want to hike in nature and appreciate our house/meals/bed, etc. Alone, season 6 is in the arctic and these survivalists are so incredibly resourceful you’d be so impressed with what they built, how they fed themselves, and their grit and tenacity.
From Mallory: We’ve now already referenced Armchair Expert once, but I’ll do it again –– you guys gotta listen to the Leslie Odom Jr interview they just came out with and then do what I did directly after you’re done and listen to his new album, I can’t and won’t stop dancing around my apartment to this song. You should also listen to it because –– like they said in the Armchair episode…he’s not, not sexy 🙂
From Sara: This week my recommendation is a new podcast series called “Nice White Parents” which attempts to explore the intersection of class and race in public education. And it’s all told through the dramatic narrative lens of one school in particular. So far just two of the five episodes have been released, but I’m riveted. I honestly think this is a must-listen for everyone, but especially for anyone who has or would like to have children in the US.
Another sidebar from Emily: I’m listening to that too, @Sara only two episodes in but pretty into it. That french gala left me feeling SO uncomfortable (in a good way).
Also from Jess: I’m pretty sure the new “Where did you get those shoes?” is “Where did you get that cute mask?”. I know this because those are the exact words that came out of my mouth this week when I was FaceTiming with a friend and I needed to know where her cute mask was from. To my surprise and delight, they were from Baggu. They truly seem like the best kind of mask design and they come in a bunch of really fun color combos. I chose the Mesa set (it comes with three) and I can’t wait to add them to my collection. Also please keep wearing your masks:)
From Ryann: I knew I was getting old (or boring?) when I asked for a cast-iron skillet and a hand vacuum for my birthday. But I have no regrets because this cast iron skillet by Field Company makes my heart sing. It is super light which is great for me and I actively cook more just so I can use it. I have the #10 which is 11 5/8″ and it’s the perfect size for cooking meals for two people.
From Caitlin: I am REALLY going through an obsession with candelabras/candle holders (like this modern copper squiggle set from the new UO furniture/decor collection, which is SO GOOD) and taper candles right now. To that end, I am VERY much in love with these graphic, bright, striped, hand-poured dinner candles. THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL AND FUN. I want one in every colorway!!!
That’s all for this week so we’re just gonna wrap this up, tie it with a bow and send you folks on your way into another awesome action-packed week at home. Stay tuned for some more goodies on the blog this week. xx
