The Link Up: All the Things We Couldn’t Stop Talking About This Week
This was our first official full week in the office since before Christmas (last week was a half week, plus we were up at the mountain house on a team retreat) and half the team was in and out sick with something. Starting the year strong here…
But, we’re back in the swing of things and so excited to announce a BRAND NEW series on the blog. Every week, on Sunday, we’ll be publishing a quick and simple list of all the things we buzzed about during the 5 days prior: things we read, things we Pinned, things we bought and truly, truly loved…basically, things we couldn’t help but share with each other (and now all of you). It’s what we’d tell our friends, cocktail chatter, but online on Sundays.
I know we kind of started this in the summer, where we had that Sunday newsletter of all the things I loved at any given time, but this one will be a team effort. Sometimes, you might hear just from me, but mostly, it’ll be a marriage of what has Team EHD excited.
Alright, let’s kick things off…
I’m anxiously awaiting the RSVP to Cup of Jo’s Soup Group. #JanStewary is a revolution people…it’s spreading faster than spilled bone broth on a sloped countertop.
I’ve lived in this insanely comfortable T-shirt basically for three months straight, and it’s more than half off right now.
Love this girl’s blog and appreciate her honesty, especially regarding spirituality. That *ish is hard to put out there.
At least four of us, me included, are super pumped about Leanne Ford’s new lighting collection for Target that’s launching February 10 (pictured above). This one will absolutely sell out (probably at the hand of my team alone), so set your alarms.
Everyone was convinced that this ceramic bowl was some crazy expensive (or vintage) find, but really, it was from Target (who’s killing it in the ceramics game right now).
The “holy grail” foundation that Arlyn can’t stop blabbing about to literally anyone who will listen (she wears Natural Beige).
This article about millennials being the “burnout generation”, of which Arlyn, Sara and Ryann read every word, every pull quote and discussed at length while obviously avoiding doing “work” for a solid 10 minutes. From Arlyn: “It’s the millennial mike drop.”
Sara hasn’t stopped undoing all the benefits of souping for Team EHD since she cracked open the spine of the Food52 Genius Desserts cookbook and spoils us with sweet treats basically every day. Thanks for nothing, Sara. (If you’ve sworn off sugar and other evil things this new year, she says their other cookbook, Genius Recipes, teaches you how to conquer cooking basics in a “foolproof yet elegant way.”)
Grace really loved this article from Refinery29 about finding a healthy, physical activity that actually makes you happy (dancing, walking the dog, volleyball!). You don’t have to make it a whole thing, just start.
These are Sara’s absolute favorite pans, and the only two that she’s been using for EVERYTHING lately—soup, pasta, veggies, meat. “I’ve actually gotten rid of most of my other pans.”
Our resident outdoor enthusiast Julie saw this heart-pumping movie by National Geographic filmmaker Jimmy Chin of Alex Honold climbing one of the largest rock faces in Yosemite National Park without any ropes…this is watch-through-fingers stressful yet exhilarating.
If you’re as obsessed with Myers-Briggs as we are (and notorious for not sticking to your New Years resolutions), read this.
Alright, come back next Sunday for more of our weekly musings (and of course tomorrow, Monday, for regularly programmed design content!). OH, and please do share some of your favorite things from the week in the comments below. Xx
