Hello friends. We hope you had a lovely weekend and are staying safe and healthy. In case you missed it, this week we hosted our very first Zoom Happy Hour Q&A with Emily on the EHD Insider Community and it was so. fun. Thank you to all who attended and submitted questions. If you want to attend the next one and have a little cocktail (or mocktail) with us, sign up! Now, here is what team EHD is into right this week:
This week’s featured home tour isn’t so much a tour but an appreciation of Hans Wegner’s Iconic Wishbone Chair and one of its greatest admirers is Roman Alonso of Commune Design (an EHD design firm favorite). He says he has 24 in his home because they are so comfortable. Y’all 24!! We have to say that we love the red one he is showing off in this shot but also THE READING NOOK. Everything about it is just wonderful. Can you pick a favorite detail? Is it the wallpaper accent? The patterns on the chaise? Tell us in the comments:)
From Jess: Last week I discovered musician Tommy WA (via Shoppe Black) and I love everything about his smooth folk style. Listening to his music will make your body involuntarily (but joyously) sway and immediately smile. He only has a few songs on Spotify (Riverbank is my favorite) but his Instagram has more. Check out his song/video and make your Sunday much much better:)
From Ryann: Let’s talk denim SHORTS!! I love denim shorts as I am sure I have previously mentioned here and I recently found my new favorite pair. They are roomy and have just the right amount of stretch. They are called The Perfect Jean Short for a reason (and right now they are 40% off!).
From Sara: This upcoming election is gonna be a BIG one, and if you don’t live in a battleground state you might be feeling a little helpless as to how you can make a bigger impact. Well now, via Vote Save America, you can adopt a battleground state. Choose between “adopting” Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, then get emailed a tool kit for exactly how you can support organizers and volunteers on the ground in those states (and I promise it’s not just donating money). You can also make sure you’re registered to vote or register to vote if you need to!
Also from Sara: I got this vitamin c serum a few weeks ago and have really liked it. I feel like it’s super skin brightening so far! Velinda once told me that vitamin C is the second most important thing you can put on your skin (first being SPF) and I’ve used a vitamin c serum every since.
From: Julie: When you are trying to design your own ‘purple moment’ in your bathroom and come across this all out purple tile design by Ayromloo Design. speechless.
From Caitlin: Okay, I have about a million money management apps on my phone and I always burn out on them, but I FINALLY found one that I really, really like! It’s called Albert, I’ve had it for a little over a month and it does a ton of standard budgeting stuff, but my favorite feature is that it can auto-save funds for you. I’m notoriously not great at remembering to “pay myself first,” but Albert analyzes my checking account and automatically pulls nominal amounts into a savings account. I’ve already saved 70 dollars without doing anything! (I know it’s not a fortune, but it’s A START, okay?!) It also told me how much I was spending on subscriptions ($121! Was I accidentally subsidizing all of America’s Netflix accounts?! No more!) and it was able to negotiate me a lower rate on my internet bill! The best part is that IT’S FREE but they also have a pay-what-you-want tier where you can text experts for real-time advice on your own finances. (I decided to pay $7/month because I love the app and sometimes I need help from someone smarter than me.) PS. I’m still a Robinhood loyalist for stocks…but Team Albert for everything else.
From Mallory: Been looking for a snakeskin summer sandal to replace my snakeskin winter boots and OH BOY I found her (and she’s only $60, originally $138!!) You guys know how I feel about a deal.
That is all we have for you today. Have a lovely Sunday and come back tomorrow for a REALLY fun reveal. xx
