Happy August y’all and a happy one it is! Our very own Ryann Miller shall now be forever known as Ryann Trombetti. That’s right, our gal had the sweetest courthouse wedding with just their parents by their sides last weekend and we all could not be happier for her and her HUSBAND, Rocky. Even though it was just Ryann who got married, I think we are all riding high on this celebration of love. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Trombetti! Now that we are all in a good mood, let’s get into these links and what we can only assume is a very Ryann-approved home tour:)
This week’s house tour is not only EHD/Ryann-approved because Ryann and the owner share a maiden name, ha. But also that its charm and soul are almost overwhelming. This 16th-century thatched-roof cottage, that’s straight out of a storybook, was restored by Sienna Miller’s (the homeowner) friend and director, Gaby Dellal. Actually, Gaby gave Sienna her first acting job! The story is wonderful, the interiors are breathtaking yet completely welcoming, and there’s almost an infinite amount of vintage. Check the rest out here!
From Emily: After 4 years of heavy chopping for soups/salads and refusing to buy those weird “As Seen On TV” chopping tools with a ton of annoying accessories (no offense if you love those!), I finally bought myself a Mandolin and it’s EXCELLENT. This was spurred by my desire to prep out salad makings on Sunday for the week – I wanted those super thin radishes, carrots, and slightly thicker cucumber. I read a ton of reviews and watched videos before I settled on this one, which is very simple (only 2 parts), yet has enough variety in settings to make thicker slices if needed. So many mandolins that were recommended were beautiful french or Japanese and over $200 so I just put it off forever, not willing to spend that (and frankly intimidated by the amount of functionality). This one is $50 (still an investment for a KITCHEN TOOL, but not $200) and so far I’ve LOVED IT. Lunchtime salad assembly for Bri and I is an absolute breeze. I really should show you my chopped salad formula, it’s absolutely delicious and is something I look forward to eating all morning every day.
From Ryann: The secret is out! I got hitched last Friday!!! My now HUSBAND and I eloped at Beverly Hills City Hall and it was perfect. The plan wasn’t always to get married on a random Friday but when we were at city hall getting our marriage license, we sort of spontaneously decided to make an appointment for a civil ceremony (you can read this post if you are curious why we opted for a city hall wedding versus a more traditional one). ANYWAY, I only had a few days to get a dress and after ordering and returning a bunch of white dresses that didn’t fit right, I finally bought this one and fell in love. It has a beautiful pink and white floral pattern and fit like a glove. At first, I was sad I couldn’t find a white dress that I loved, but it ended up being the perfect vibe for our sweet and intimate city hall wedding. The brand is called Selkie and they make GORGEOUS whimsical dresses for brides and/or for any occasion and the price is extremely reasonable for the quality. The whole day felt like a dream and this dress was just the icing on the cake!
From Jess: I have been WAITING for this home tour! I am a big Elaine Welteroth fan. So when she and her husband moved to LA, bought a home, and were shopping for lots of vintage, I couldn’t wait to see what they would come up with. It’s calm, full of soft curved shapes, and so much love (especially now with their beautiful baby in tow). Still crossing my fingers that one day our paths with cross and we’ll become friends:) In the meantime go check it out!
Also From Jess: The last bachelorette party of the year is upon us (well, for me at least:)) But this one is for my cousin best friend (CBF) that I helped coordinate. We aren’t big penis-shaped everything/tons of matching things that we likely won’t use again. So I kept what I bought minimal, affordable, cute, and mostly from Etsy. This customizable banner (retro font), these biodegradable balloons (hopefully they actually are but better than the alternative, right?), these customizable wine bottle labels, and these woven visors (there are nicer ones out there but we needed to save $$$). Her other friend picked out this super cute veil headband and got fun custom temporary tattoos of my cousin’s fiance and dog’s face (here are some options: these and these). I can’t tell which one she’ll be more excited about… just kidding, it will be Barney (her pup). The last thing I did was buy extra polaroid film for my camera so that my cousin and all of us can have some physical photos to take home with us. If you are planning a bachelorette I hope this helps!
From Caitlin: I am OBSESSED with the fresh (and kind of like…flirty??) cut of these new Nisolo boots!!! I get more comments on my d’Orsay Oxfords than literally ANY other pair of shoes I own – they are VERY chic and timeless but also fun and easy to wear, which is a suuuuper hard balance to strike – and I love that I can continue to rock that silhouette in a more fall/winter-appropriate way. ADDED TO CART SO FAST. (I think I’m opting for black, but the bone is also calling to me. Thoughts???)
From Mallory: I have officially been wearing this sports bra for nearly 5 years now and it’s STILL my favorite. It’s such a classic, has the prettiest back, and has a great amount of support for the little ladies. I can’t recommend it enough – I have it in white and black so they go with all of my colorful workout pants and I still wear them every day. Also, size up…I wear a 6 in this and I’m usually a 4
Our Erik Staalberg is A STAR! Grab a martini and enjoy this video🙂
Congrats again to the Trombetti’s and see y’all tomorrow!!
