The Link Up: The Cream That Made Ryann’s Hair Shine, Caitlin’s Fav Bachelor Podcast, and A Gift For Gen-Zers That’ll Make You “The Cool” Aunt Or Uncle

Hey all!! EHD team here ready to welcome you to another link up. We’ve got some fun links for you this week (per usual…we hope:)) so let’s not waste another moment of your time and dig right in:

This week’s home tour was styled by our very own EHD alum Emily Bowser!!! What is it you ask? IT’S JAY-Z’S FRICKEN OFFICE ON AD!!! And it’s beautiful. We’re just so happy and excited for her because it. is. awesome.

Is anyone looking to volunteer for an incredible (and an EHD favorite) organization and is social to LA or the near surrounding areas?? Well, Miry’s List is looking for a buyer! They need to bring someone onto their volunteer team who can shop for families. This would need to be someone for LOVES shopping around for the best deal. Someone who enjoys online shopping and has a sense of style….and could shop on behalf of someone else’s style and taste. They have a distinct process for assessing their families’ needs, tastes, preferences, and priorities over the phone. Now they need to bring on the right person (or people) to take those directions and turn it into a household full of beautiful things that will feel like home.

From Emily: When Max told me that he had a new custom window treatment line I didn’t necessarily freak out – historically patterned window treatments aren’t my favorite thing (mostly when they are custom because they are so darn expensive). But I saw them this week and I LOVE THEM and am seriously considering some of them for the farm. There are some really beautiful cable knit motifs, plaids that feel totally classic (not 80s), ginghams, and QUILTS (and solids). Sure he is my friend and colleague, but that’s not why I’m posting about it – I am genuinely impressed by this collection (and it’s made in Portland by Hartmann and Forbes).

From Jess: I’m not someone who wears a lot of makeup but I am a girl who has used under-eye concealer nearly every day (2020 excluded) since 2001 (?). These dark circled puppies are hereditary but also maybe a few more vegetables and hours of sleep could help a little. Who’s to say? Anyway, I’ve been using the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer for so many years now but I really want this concealer from a brand called Merit. The reviews are really great, it’s vegan and clean but I wanted to know if any of you have tried it! Is it really that good??

Also From Jess: My friend wrote her first book! It’s called Six Days In Rome by Francesca Giacco and it’s available for pre-order now. If you don’t know, pre-orders are extremely important to authors since it lets booksellers and readers take notice of them (and for sellers, to order accordingly). It’s especially important for debut authors like her. Here is a review to give you a taste: “In this decadent, deeply evocative novel, a young artist travels to Rome to heal a broken heart, where she ​confronts loneliness and intimacy, rage and desire: ‘Sensorial as hell . . . A stunningly cool and stylish debut’ (Paul Beatty, Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sellout). So if this sounds up your alley (and if you’re a reader here it probably does), pre-order now for a great future present to yourself:)

From Ryann: On Tuesday when we had our weekly team Zoom meeting, I received a Slack from Caitlin asking if I had done a hair mask because she thought it looked so healthy and shiny. I was of course flattered and shocked because the answer was no, I just hadn’t washed my hair in a couple days and to mask my greasy locks I haphazardly applied this soft shine grooming cream to my roots and ends. That’s when I had an “Oh sh*t”  moment and realized my hair DID look crazy smooth and healthy. I usually cannot go a day without washing my hair but this product makes my greasy unwashed hair look like I just got a crazy expensive blowout–and it’s only $12!!!

From Caitlin: I also recommend Ryann’s grooming cream because her hair has looked so luscious on two consecutive Zooms!!! But actually – is anyone else watching Only Murders In The Building? It’s so good and fun and somehow feels like the perfect show for fall, you know? Never in my life would I have been like “you know who I need to see together? Selena Gomez and Steve Martin in a TV show about a podcast” but now I need them in every single show I watch. (I’ve always wanted Martin Short in everything TBH.)

Also From Caitlin: Two media links this week! I’ve recommended it before, but 2 Black Girls, 1 Rose is THE BEST Bachelor podcast. It’s $5 a month (or more, if you want!) and worth every. single. penny. It’s laugh out loud funny, it feels like you’re just sitting there and catching up with friends, and their Paradise recaps are not to be missed!!! If you sent me to a desert island and said “you can only bring one entertainment podcast,” this would be it without question. LOVE LOVE LOVE. (You should follow them out on IG, too – their account is SO fun.)

From Ajai: Can you ever really have too many pillows? I’ve been obsessed with stripes lately and have been eyeing this pillow. It’s versatile and can easily be used as a comfy accent piece during any season. 

From Mallory: Have you ever been into oddly satisfying videos?? That’s what this Instagram account is, but make it DESIGN. It’s called ‘The Buildsters’ and I’m way too into watching their videos. Seriously I could spend hours.

Also From Mallory: Did you catch the post we wrote on what design styles gen-zs into right now? Well, since I’m TECHNICALLY Gen-Z I decided it was time to lean a lil Avant-Basic because it’s fun…so I bought this cute bubble candle and I’m obsessed. For all the cool aunties that commented on that post, this candle would also make a great gift for your nieces or nephews!!

Ok! Thank you for giving us a few moments of your Sunday (or whatever day you choose to read) and see you tomorrow!

Wow, Ladies! I love all the things! I have wanted to watch Only Murders in the Building but haven’t coughed up the money to subscribe yet. But I love Steve Martin and Frank (I mean Martin!). LOVE MARTIN SHORT! And the hair product- I’m going to get it, but sorry, probably either in person or via Amazon.

I have a good faith question. I order online from Sephora all the time and they’re good, in my experience. (I pay for the flash shipping) If you’d but from Sephora in person is there a reason you’d buy online from Amazon instead?

Lisa, I’m not trying to say Amazon is great, but you may want to look into Sephora’s parent company, LVMH. The burden of regulating mega retail corporations shouldn’t be placed on individuals. While we can each try to buy from more ethical and sustainable companies, the research necessary to determine which companies those are is overwhelming for any one person.

I try to buy from local stores, and the cream I mentioned is from Target. So I will go to Target and see if they have it. When I buy from Amazon it’s usually because I can’t find a product locally, or if I buy online, I pay no shipping when I buy from Amazon. And Amazon does the most amazing job of fulfillment. I prefer Amazon over any other online source, given the same product. And I am from Seattle and have worked many years with Amazon as a client, have spent time in their offices. I am not an Amazon hater; quite the opposite. I think Amazon was a savior during the pandemic. Yes, they made a lot of money. They made it by doing an amazing job.

LEARNED: Interesting post about the “Lost Singer Building.”
WATCHING: Trying to watch all the Emmy nominated shows (…no, not going to make it b4 the broadcast) and watched HBO’s amazing Mare of Easttown this week. Also had watched the 1st four episodes of Lovecraft Country on HBO when it came out and never managed to finish it. Just watched episodes 5-7 and it is blowing my mind!
READING: Loved Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I desperately want her to write a book about the “couple that never was” from the party. Started Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.

The window treatment line is to the trade only. 😑

I was looking for prices forever and then gave up. This must be why. Bummer.

Such a bummer, because they are really good.

Yes, I’d love a hint on how to get things that are only “to the trade”. I don’t need or want a designer or stylist, I just want to buy some damn curtain fabric. Why can’t we?

Businesses who sell to the public require a whole different sales infrastructure than those who sell wholesale or to the trade. Volume also helps improve profit margins – they probably aren’t interested in selling four shades to an individual. Even if they sell four shades to a designer, they’re likely to get repeat orders or to be used on multiple projects.

I have also worn undereye concealer religiously with the exception of the last year and a half, and Merit really IS THAT GOOD! I recently went on vacation and returned too tan for my usual shade and didn’t not hesitate to buy the same concealer one shade darker.

Wanted to say that for all you LA locals, Shop Greenwood has an amazing selection of candles (bubble and squiggles and more) for all your avant basic needs. They also have so many other things you totally want like all the PLANTS!

Cool aunties/uncles, fyi, most university dorms do not allow candles. LED and assorted string lights are the way to go.
