Happy Sunday fun day, folks. We hate to brag, but it is an especially happy one for team EHD because we are OOO for the entire week (yes, our boss is pretty freaking cool and we are so grateful) but don’t worry, we have a week of blog posts scheduled for you because as they say, the show must go on.
Speaking of showbiz, Lena Dunham’s bright and happy home tour was featured in Domino this past week and we think there is a lot to love about it. It is extremely intoxicating with so many colors, shapes, and cool vintage finds. Plus, her essay on finding out “home is where you make it” is worth the read. Anyway, we can certainly talk about home tours all day long, but we have much more to dish about so let’s get to the rest of those EHD links…
First up, Emily couldn’t have been more excited to see that EHD alum Ginny Macdonald designed Create & Cultivate’s new office. The space is stunning and it is so wonderful to see a collaboration between two creatives that she loves.
Caitlin knows that pimple patches aren’t a new thing, but she’s here with the ultimate tried-and-true patch, and they only cost twelve dollars for a full year’s supply! “Y’all, these are Korean and nothing else holds a candle to them. Pop on a patch before bed and wake up zit-free. It’s like magic.”
Arlyn has held off on the Birkenstock trend for as long as she could, but she recently got these black leather ones and she’s never looking back because OMG are they comfortable. She says, “FYI, size down…I’m normally a 7.5 in open toe shoes (8 in closed toe), and I ended up ordered a US 6/EU 37. I could have easily gone for the US 7/EU 38, too, but I didn’t want them to look too…clompy.”
Ryann has been so inspired by all the bedroom reveals on the site lately and has the itch to start a MOTO for her own master. She knows she wants a vintage dresser, so she’s been spending her nights digging through Chairish for some inspiration.
Chandler is always looking for ways to sneak sunscreen into her morning routine. Something that doesn’t have a strong scent, lasts throughout the day and works well with makeup. Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen has proven to be just that. The sunscreen goes on matte and isn’t greasy, making it so easy to add to her morning routine layered right over her moisturizer. (Arlyn can also vouch for this as she uses it every day)
One of Sara’s favorite singers, Aurora, just released a new album called A Different Kind Of Human. From Sara: “All her songs kinda make me feel like a Viking warrior, which is pretty chill when I’m stuck in traffic or forcing myself to run that extra 2 minutes.”
Mallory is highly susceptible to Instagram ads, so she went ahead and purchased a Quip toothbrush. She’s very into the look of it (she got the gold metal), especially since she’s so tired of all the extremely bright colored plastic toothbrushes she’s had over the years. While she does wish the brush had softer bristles, it’s worth it for the refills that get delivered straight to your door every 3 months. And there you go, a full toothbrush review.
These sandals have become Carolina’s go-to this summer..She wears them EVERYDAY because they literally go with everything (FYI, they run small so she recommends going a half size up).
Velinda’s 16-year-old dog just got spoiled with TWO of these orthopedic beds because he gets “roamy” at night and giving him more places to settle helps his nightly stir-crazies. The bed is lower in the front so it’s easy for him to get in and out. It is a good option for old dogs, but comfy for any.
Bowser has been on the SEARCH for the perfect bedside table lamps for her MOTO and has been striking out. Luckily, Instagram is a stalker and knows this and put Gantri on her feed. Gantri is a sustainable lighting company with fair prices and great design. Check, check, CHECK! They use 3D printing to make their lights. HOW COOL IS THAT?? We are living in the future!
As an ample-chested gal (34D), Jess tends to have a hard time finding fun and dare she say “sexy” tops that still feel cool and casual. Enter in this very cute top. The ruffle straps are wide enough to wear a normal bra and neckline is super flattering without giving too much away if you catch her drift. Pair with a high waisted pant (it’s a little cropped) and you are good to go. Also, she got a large so it wasn’t too tight.
And finally, we are heartbroken about the devastating fires destroying the Amazon right now. It can feel hopeless and overwhelming trying to figure out what we can do to help, but we found this article extremely helpful. If you have any other resources, please leave them in the comments below.
That is where we leave you for today, but we hope to see you around tomorrow for a very special reader event recap. xx
