Happy Sunday ladies and gents, and welcome back to The Link Up. We are happy you’ve joined the party because we have LOTS of good recs in store for you today so we’re going to get straight to it. First up, today’s home tour is brought to you by The Design Files, and frankly, we can’t get enough of it. Click that link if you are in the mood for an insanely cool but also bright, happy home tour. Now, let’s dive into those EHD links:
From Emily: “If you need a serious dose of inspiration and feeling of hope, watch The Biggest Little Farm. Brian and I both cried, tears dropping off our chins, out of sheer hope. When is the last time you wept from simply feeling inspired and hopeful by someone else’s beautiful work? (answer: when we saw Hamilton on Broadway with the original cast). This movie struck us hard and has changed our mindset (and if anyone knows them please email – we want to collaborate with them in any way – farm tour, tips for my janky veggie garden that they inspired, I’ll let their pig do my makeup – literally any way for me to be near them).
Also from Emily: “Once again I bought this rug for another project because we were all seriously impressed how great it was for the price.”
Julie’s secret to glowing skin these days after many years under the harsh sun is Pixi’s Glowtion Day Dew. Toner, moisturizer, Glowtion and then foundation has become Julie’s morning routine and the results have been fantastic. Added bonus: It doesn’t irritate sensitive skin. Win win.
Caitlin is in love with these round circle hair clips from Verishop, a site she just discovered that has a well-curated section of EVERYTHING. They have beautiful home goods, indie beauty brands, well-curated clothing and accessories sections—it’s all here, folks. The site is actually manageable (like you can actually make it through every page, which is unprecedented) AND they have free one-day shipping. It’s her new favorite site.
Chandler loves these white boots from Nordstrom. She got them last season, and they held up super well and are back again just in time for fall! They are so comfortable and can be dressed up or down.
A friend recommended this podcast to Veronica and she is hooked. It follows the stories / killings of the Golden State Killer so if you’re into murder and crime podcasts, this one’s for you. But be advised: it will spook you to. your. core.
Bowser just got back from a bike trip through the foothills of the French Alps and was very happy she had purchased this mount for her phone so that she could safely both ride and see her maps.
Jess’ first pair of shoes were probably cowboy boots if her parents had any say…which they obviously did. But since those younger cowgirl days she has been on a bit of a western style hiatus. But these boots are SO cute and are the perfect modern cowboy blend that may have her back on the horse:) Plus she has never owned an uncomfortable pair of Seychelles soooo…must haves??
Sara is obsessed with this $35 denim jumpsuit (that her, Julie, Bowser AND Jess all have). It’s so comfortable and has a lot of stretch (she wears a small and she feels like it still has a lot of room to move around in). It is basically a super affordable knock off of a Madewell or Levi’s version and we are here for it.
Carolina is still thinking about RODARTE’s recent Collection Portrait Series. The whole lookbook is breathtaking and so, so dreamy.
From Arlyn: “Someone recommended this $6 mini knife sharpener to me that I decided to try because…well it was $6 and my knives are getting dull. I’m too lazy to take them to get professionally sharpened as often as they need, so I’m VERY happy to report that a few pulls through the blades on this little guy, and my knives cut almost like new again. I even used it on a knife that was so dull, it just smooshed everything I tried to cut with it, and it sliced through a tomato with ease after a little sharpening. GET IT. Best $6 I ever spent on my kitchen.”
Ryann discovered this artist on instagram recently and now her favorite pastime is scrolling through her feed, drooling over all her paintings. From Ryann: “I don’t have the words to describe this woman’s talent, but all I know is I want her work all over my walls, and I want to be her best friend.”
And before we go, if you haven’t had a chance to watch this video of 16 year old activist Greta Thunberg addressing the UN, we think it is worth the watch.
As always, thank you for stopping by, please leave your thoughts, comments, and suggestions below, and we hope you will join us in this wild internet space tomorrow xx
