Atlanta was awesome (did you see the intro and reveal posts this week?), but boy does it feel right and good to be all together again. Hope you had a great week and are ready for a lot of great links and recommendations…
First things first, as we need to all band together and help the insanely WONDERFUL Pen + Napkin (the charity we worked with for The Rummage Sale last year) raise enough money to help a family in need. Emily and our team are teaming up again to help a single mom and her four children who have survived domestic violence and homelessness create a home they feel safe in and love. The goal is $7k, and anything that isn’t used here will go to future projects with Pen + Napkin (i.e. other flash makeovers). Please donate whatever you can HERE.
The next VERY important piece of info is that Nisolo is going to give away TWO pairs of shoes. Yes, you read that correctly! One pair of Ecuador Huaraches and one Emma d’Orsay (the team modeled those in this post from earlier this week). To enter, head here and leave a comment (i.e., not on this post) with which pair you want and why. But also don’t forget that EHD readers have a 20% discount through July 8. Just use code: EHD20.
Interested in this weeks edition of Jaw-Dropping Home Tours? Designer Mario Milana and actress Gabriella Campagna’s home is a stunning oasis of modern design that if given the chance to go inside, would never want to leave…or maybe that’s just us but we doubt it.
Arlyn is SO excited for this new cookbook from one of her favorite food accounts out there (especially when she does Whole30). Teri from No Crumbs Left always has fantastic recipes and just seems like a generally wonderful spirit. She pre-ordered it and cannot wait for it to be released on May 21.
Staying on that cooking train, Sara refers to her cookbooks a LOT and really tries hard to use them instead of Pinterest. She was a reluctant purchaser of Gywneths’ cookbook, The Clean Plate but it’s wormed its way into her heart. This seed cracker is her current favorite covered in avocado or dipped in hummus. It’s earth, nutty, and savory. Plus, it’s like a weird/fun since an experiment to make.
You may have seen on Emily’s instastory the completely adorable matching pajama sets Julie, Bowser and Sara were sporting in Atlanta. It’s cool, we weren’t at all jealous. They just looked so cozy and they confirmed it was true. Here is the link to the top and the bottom. We all might be buying a set. EHD pajama day Em??
Michael binge-watched an entire season of Boise Boys in one day last weekend. They are such a funny odd couple of friends doing some AMAZING remodels in Boise, Idaho. The design is great and the guys are sweet and entertaining.
Grace loved this article and definitely related to it a lot. In design school, she wouldn’t start any of her projects until midnight. It was quiet and therapeutic and just overall felt like a much more productive time—like she had all the time in the world…until the roosters brought her back to reality. 🙂
Ryann just discovered the magic that is Rebbl Tumeric Golden Milk. It’s a great mid-morning treat (it tastes a lot like a chai latte). She likes this particular brand because it is dairy- and soy-free.
Velinda’s wife turned her onto a new true crime podcast Crime Junkie after they devoured Sword and Scale. The crimes covered are often ones she hadn’t heard before, despite going through multiple true-crime binge phases. No happy endings found here, so the recommendation comes with a disclaimer.
Looking for a stunning curation of vintage heaven? Emily wants you to look no further than Garance Dore’s curated collection with Chairish (an EHD favorite). You may remember her and her home that she designed with Sarah Sherman Samuel in Domino a few months back. It’s a modern match made in vintage heaven.
Speaking of feeling good in clothes, Jess just bought this Target swimsuit top and bottom and loves it. She says she has problems with two-piece tops making her bust look good but this one supports while still looking flattering and just the right amount of sexy. The bottoms are also great! There was no sign of the dreaded muffin top. Two thumbs up and affordable.
Veronica recently bought this navy blue mascara from Sephora and she loooooves it! She always wanted to try blue mascara even though she was afraid of it being too bold. This one goes on so smooth and makes your eyelashes look long and full. It dries a little darker blue, so it’s not as attention-grabbing—perfect for what she was looking for. They come in three other colors as well.
As someone who already believes a woman should be in charge of her own body this article really made Emily look it in a new way. It’s a MUST READ and really flipped the script of how we look at being pro-choice and pro-life.
Now probably one of the most important links this week is to this article on how we can help women in states that are violently taking away their reproductive (aka human) rights. It’s a gross understatement to say it’s a scary time and it’s our obligation to help in any way we can.
See you tomorrow and don’t forget to head to THIS POST to leave a comment to enter to win a free pair of Nisolo shoes. xx
