The Link Up: Blog Awards, “Kidfluencers”, Genius New Home Decor
We made it to the best day of the week once again…the link up. This week was a little extra special because we welcomed a new member to the EHD team. Please welcome Veronica, our new photo assistant. We nicknamed her Mars (duh) as soon as we heard her name. Don’t worry, we are 99% positive she likes it despite not having seen an episode of Veronica Mars yet. That fact will change shortly if we have anything to do with it. Now please enjoy this week’s links, go watch Veronica Mars and don’t forget about daylight savings (we LOSE an hour) if you live in a place that recognizes it…why is this still a thing, California??
This article was terrifying for Emily, especially for someone like her whose business relies so heavily on social media (PS, it’s a piece on “kidfluencers”). She’s been drafting a ‘how I feel about my own kids in social media’ for almost 4 years now so let us know if this is something you actually want to be published. It’s a piece full of vulnerability so she told us she just wants the assurance people will actually read it in order to get it out there. Let us know in the comments.
Exciting news!! We made Domino’s Best Design Blogs of 2019. We are so honored to still be on their list.
As Emily and the design team are wrapping up the mountain house design, this mountain getaway designed by the multi-talented Brooklyn Decker is a true inspiration. It’s the perfect mix of rustic, classic and coziness.
Emily wants you to know about Rebecca Atwood’s new line. Yes, a new line of her textile genius. It’s evokes everything wonderful about springtime and will most likely have you immediately drooling upon first sight.
Our resident brow gal, Jess cannot wait to try this crazy affordable brow styling technique. All you need is a bar of soap and a mascara wand. Wait…huh?
Veronica is coming in hot with her first recommendation, a VERY cute and affordable jewelry company she loves and wears basically every day.
Our EHD baker extraordinaire Sara swears by this super easy and SUPER TASTY chocolate cake recipe. All of us are waiting for the day she brings it into work. Sara? Does Monday work?
During last month’s trip to Target HQ, we got a sneak peek of some new releases. Arlyn’s favorites including Auden, a new lingerie line that looked SO great in person, and Stars Above which are pajamas and loungewear that were SUPER soft with lots of options in a wide range of sizes.
Dog owners, this one is for you. Velinda highly recommends Nulo Adult Grain Free Dog Food. It’s the only food her 15-year-old dog with skin allergies eats. She says it boosts his energy and keeps him from itching.
Julie is trying to take care of herself (finally). In her committed effort, she bought two products this week to boost her health. The first is Bulletproof Unflavored Collagen Protein (she doesn’t eat a lot of meat so it’s a great substitute) and Garden of Life Green Superfood because she is a self-proclaimed “forgetful human” who doesn’t eat enough veggies. She will report back in a month.
Favorite candle alert! Grace bought this Thymes Frasier Fir Pine Needle Candle last week while at a shop near the mountain house based on Sara’s recommendation (Arlyn has it, too, via Brady, and stands behind it, too). She used it Sat and Sun and says it’s SO GOOD! Woodsy, but kinda sweet at the same time.
Michael loved this video interview with Selma Blair. He said it’s shocking, inspiring and powerful.
Juicers aren’t cheap but you know what else isn’t cheap?? JUICE. So Bowser bought a new juicer. A friend told her about the Omega and was sold when she said it was the easiest juicer she’s come across to clean. DUH. BOUGHT. She will also report back.
Arlyn has had this cable management box for a few months and while in her dream world, would prefer no wires ever in her sight, it DRASTICALLY improved the cordage bombardment around her TV in the living room.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you are local, don’t forget to head to Pen and Napkin’s Rummage sale today. See you tomorrow,
