Well folks, here we are again with another link up. We hope you are ready to jump right in because we have some really great stuff in store for you today, the Sunday before a (hopefully for you) short week! If you missed anything from the week prior, we launched some of our gift guides (more to come—like Emily’s Ultimate Guide—this week, but so far for “her”, for “him”, for the hard to shop for and all the best ideas under $50), talked about tile…twice, rounded up some table-setting inspiration and Emily reviewed and styled some awesome coats. But now, without further ado, let’s see what the EHD ladies have up their sleeves this week…
Today’s featured home tour is something from Caitlin’s dreams, but if ’80s Art Deco is not your thing, keep reading. Designer Anna Karlin turned 11 normal, white-walled standard apartments into THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPACES IN THE WORLD. (Stick with it, we swear there’s a room for everyone!!!).
Jess just bought this awesome denim blouse from Zara. It’s the perfect mix of looking “put together” and causal. Plus, it’s super comfortable. Yes, it’s a very “Uptown Prairie” and she is very aware she has been #EMfluenced.
No stranger to vintage, Caitlin went diving through Chairish for some fun lighting inspiration and couldn’t.stop.scrolling.
Velinda loved the show Unbelievable (on Netflix) and pitched it to friends as “a female-driven True Detective…only TRUE.” The first episode is hard to watch, but so worth getting through because the series is great.
You can stop looking for the best Christmas candle because Arlyn found it for you. “I buy this every year because it’s insanely good. It has that perfect evergreen smell and man does this thing spread that glorious scent around the house. It’s a powerhouse candle and I’m warning you, you’ll be addicted to this thing year after year. In fact… it’s time to go buy mine.”
OMG who remembers Fila from the ’90s and are we okay with it being back?
Our resident chef, Sara, is at it again: “I was making our vegan Zuppa Tuscana recipe (as one does), but also making pumpkin bread at the same time. I had some leftover pumpkin puree—not really enough to make a new recipe with, but too much to throw away—so I just added it to my pot of bubbling soup. INSTANT HIT. The pumpkin with the coconut made the soup extra creamy. I also added mushrooms and a cup of 100% wild rice to turn this Italian themed soup into the cozy harvest soup of my dreams (and it’s still 100% vegan).”
Speaking of food, our other kitchen enthusiast Arlyn loved this article from Food52 on how to make the best stuffing, because, you know…timely. They tested different kinds of breads (and there was a clear winner), different cooking techniques, and if making ahead/freezing/thawing made any difference to the final product. If your Thanksgiving meal is centered around stuffing, go read it (it’s short and has lots of pictures!).
And speaking of Thanksgiving, Julie has a sweet potato recipe she has been using for almost 10 years. If you like pecans, thyme, parmesan and a little spice then this one is for you.
Mallory is desperate to buy these pants that Jess wore earlier this week.
Veronica bought this lipstick from Sephora in the Red is Back shade. “I get it, red lipstick isn’t for everyone, but I have been searching for a good red that doesn’t look absolutely ridiculous and clown-ish on me, and even though this one is brighter than the shade I’d usually choose, I am a big fan! It stays on all day, even when eating messy foods.”
Ryann laughed out loud reading this article about why Thursday is the best day of the week and she is now FULLY convinced it is indeed the best day. Read it for yourself and you too will be converted.
That is all for today. Have a lovely Sunday and see you back here tomorrow. xx
