Happy Sunday folks. It is November already and we are not sure how we got here SO FAST but we are just going to roll with it. But, before we say goodbye to October 2019 forever, head here to see what team EHD dressed up as for Halloween, if you are so inclined. We are very proud of how well it worked out, and we love a reason to wear jumpsuits. It was a win win and also, SO fun to be matching all day.

Now, before we get into our regularly scheduled programming, we feel compelled to acknowledge the fires that have affected our home, Los Angeles this week. We especially want to thank our firefighters and first responders who have worked TIRELESSLY to save homes, contain the fires, and keep us safe. We hope any readers that are local are safe and unharmed.

Today’s home tour is brought to you by Architectural Digest, and it is probably the coolest seaside cottage we have ever laid eyes on.

From Emily: “I bought Birdie this dress and she LOVES it. She is in a huge princess phase and only wants to wear her Elsa or Ariel dresses (or nightgowns, yes, she’s gone to school plenty of times in an Anna or Elsa nightgown. This is not a battle I feel is necessary to fight). But since this dress has a ruffle skirt, she still loves it (and I would absolutely wear this dress, too). ”

When Julie’s sister, Val, left to go travel the world for a year with her family (I know we are all jealous, take us with you!) she gave her so many skincare items. One of them was this eye cream she end up loving…and with this windy weather lately it has come in handy!

Veronica bought these overalls from American Eagle a few weeks ago, and they are the perfect combination of comfortable without being too baggy. She’s usually a size small, but went with the medium so the top is a little baggier, but that’s easily fixable with the adjustable straps.

Welcome to Jess’ full-on morning addiction…the La Colombe Oatmilk Draft Latte in a can. It’s truly her most favorite coffee drink in the world and would drink it every day if she had it her way. She prefers her’s with ice because it is very creamy.

Mallory‘s life goal is to be a sommelier (but not really because it costs $600 to take the test) so instead, she’s settled with just teaching herself random facts about wine. From Mallory: “My FAVORITE app of late is Vivino, because it can scan any bottle of wine and tell you ratings, tasting notes, and other random comments. No more feeling aimless in the grocery store wine aisle! Cheers to that!”

From Arlyn: “Every year, I wait until a few days before Thanksgiving to casually decide it would be nice to have a roasting pan. And every year, a few days before Thanksgiving, it’s all kinds of roasting pan surge pricing online. This year, I thought ahead, and just got this bad boy in the mail. I gave it a roast chicken test run and it performed GREAT and so pumped to pull this out for the big day. Plus, you can hardly go wrong with All Clad (and the price point is basically “budget” for the quality you get).” 

Ryann bought this eyeliner recently and loves how easy it is to apply. As someone who has never mastered the art of makeup, she appreciates products that are easy to use, and lasts all day so no re-applying is necessary.

Sara is obsessed with Derry Girls on Netflix. “It feels original, the episodes are short (21 minutes), the dialogue is witty, and I laugh out loud.”

Caitlin knows this is not necessarily the sexiest recommendation, but she just got her first flat-plug power strip and it’s LIFE CHANGING. She was finally able to install some bookshelves and they are flush to the wall, instead of jutting a weird inch and a half into the room! It is insane how much joy she has gotten from a surge protector. (To balance out this not-sexy rec, she also LOVES this dome lamp because 1. it’s very affordable and 2. it kind of reminds her of this one currently in Em’s living room. Dome lamps for all budgets!)

That is all for now. Thanks for hanging out with us, and come back tomorrow for an exciting blog update xx

  1. Emily, I’d love to hear every member of your team’s opinion on “will you or do you Botox? Why or why not?”. I know the team is young but their youthful opinions are still interesting to me. In CA it seems this is as normal than dentist visits. Do you embrace it, get it but keep it on the DL, etc.?

    1. I know this isn’t the topic, but I laughed, because a friend of mine had it done between her eyebrows for “frown lines.”
      I asked her why and she said “I don’t want to look angry all the time!” She IS actually angry, a LOT! Yikes!😈
      I then responded with, “Well some counseling would be cheaper in the long run and be much longer lasting….transformative even.” 😘
      Then…she got sucked into having it for (non-existent) crows feet.
      Then….she got sucked into collagen injections into her lips.
      Aaaaarrrrrgggghh!!🤑
      Now…she has that SAME stoned crow, numb looking, expressionless face that far too many women have.
      At a gathering, I asked some men, on the quiet, what they thought. They agreed in unison, that they’d rather be with someone who showed them how they were feeling, than a plastic barbie! BOOM!
      WHY, WHY, WHY DO SO MANY WOMEN PUT CRAP INTO THEIR BODIES TO APPEASE OTHER WOMEN???
      Men prefer natural beauty, so let’s not pretend it has anything to do with them.😤

      1. I’m cringing at the thought of a “friend” asking a group of men what they thought of my face.

        1. Yeah you sound terrible. To each her own – if she likes it and this is how you spend your time at parties, it’s you that needs therapy.

        2. Yes, I thought the same. Be kind.

          1. I choose kindness. That’s why I wrote the clarification.

        3. Seriously.

        4. No person was mentioned or used as an example.
          She wasn’t even at that gathering.
          Different friend group.
          I didn’t even speak about ‘women who’ve had work done’.
          I just asked some men what they found attractive, in a non-judgemental way.
          I guess my shock and horror at the suggestion that I did what you’ve interpreted proves my need to rectify the misconstrued construct.
          I did not write it clearly…guess I didn’t imagine anyone would do ‘that’ in the first place.
          I’m gutted at the thought and by the judgement! 🙄

      2. O.M.G!!! 🙄
        I DIDN’T ASK MEN WHAT THEY THOUGHT OF HER FACE!!!
        WTF?!?

        I asked a general “So, what kind of female ‘looks’ do you like? So-called ‘perfect’, tweaked, or real, as-is? ”

        I’d never even considered such a thing! Guess that’s why I didn’t imagine what I wrote would come across that way.
        I feel nauseous at the thought. 🤐

        1. Here’s the thing Rusty. If you ask a group of men if they like plasticy fish lipped women, or “natural” women, of course they will unanimously choose natural…Not knowing that the majority of the natural beautied women over 40 they “prefer” on TV, ads, insta, etc. Also have botox. Maybe your friend had a bad job, or overdid it, but a good technician keeps you looking natural not “barbie”. One example is all the women on Big Little Lies. Plenty of botox there, but they look awesome and naturally beautiful. Your question itself had some extreme confirmation bias.

          And most women who have any work done do it for themselves, not the seal claps of men or women. It would be beautiful for cultural norms to shift where accepting an aging body was easier on our psyches.

          1. WOW!
            Kudos to you for putting that so very eloquently.
            Many points taken and a serving of humble pie eaten.
            Thank you for your considered feedback.
            I appreciate it. 🙃

      3. That’s awesome intel. Thx.

    2. I recently go Botox and then injections on my lips and checks. I’m 45 and recently divorced. I didn’t get it for anyone, but myself. It’s quite subtle. Literally no one has asked me about it…but I feel good about it. I find I enjoy more putting on my makeup and taking pictures with my children. Just my 2cents.

  2. Love that dress and I think I will get it for my granddaughter! Thanks!

  3. Love Caitlin’s lamp suggestion and Jess’s oat milk latte link. I hope I can find the canned latte locally!

  4. In the lead photo from Architectural Digest with the round rug, none of the furniture legs (besides the coffee table) are on the rug like you usually recommend. Can you talk about why that works in this room?

  5. This for very interesting and useful

  6. My worlds are colliding!
    This and Lecatch.com are the only two blogs I check daily.
    Thanks for the fun read.

    1. Ha! Same! This and lecatch are my top two.

      I’m a Midwesterner with a fairly unimpressive income, but I looove Marliens’s style (and writing).

  7. Derry Girls is SO GOOD. My husband and I were crying tears of real laughter in almost every episode. Everyone should watch it!!!

  8. Here’s the thing Rusty. If you ask a group of men if they like plasticy fish lipped women, or “natural” women, of course they will unanimously choose natural…Not knowing that the majority of the natural beautied women over 40 they “prefer” on TV, ads, insta, etc. Also have botox. Maybe your friend had a bad job, or overdid it, but a good technician keeps you looking natural not “barbie”. One example is all the women on Big Little Lies.

  9. not to enter the drama fest, but would love to hear your teams take on botox- for better or worse.

  10. I am always lookig for good eyeliners and I have to say that my experience with sephora eyeliner was that it smudged after a while and you have to keep reapplying. The best I have found is nyx liquid eyeliner. No smudge and easy application.
