The Link Up: The Week The World Got ‘FYRED’ Up
Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you’ve had a great weekend and are getting in that last bit of R&R before we all kick off another week…the LAST week of January. I just realized that as I was typing…Can we call someone to sloooow this time thing down? Is there an app for that I can download? Until that’s figured out, we should all squeeze our loved ones tight and snuggle up to enjoy these chillier winter days. Now, just sit back and enjoy all of our week’s exciting discoveries.
Over Thanksgiving, I was RIVETED and couldn’t put this article down about why people aren’t having as much sex (or kids). I kept the magazine it was in like a hoarder but I’ve already referenced it a few times since.
Then, in the same issue was an article about why exorcisms are up??!!!! People are getting or reporting being possessed more than they have in decades…SO INTERESTING.
The ENTIRE teams loves this candle (Voluspa French Cade Lavender). But Arlyn revealed a super secret that if you burn that candle and this candle (Capri Blue’s Volcano) in the same room (in different areas), your space will smell like an Anthropologie…so basically heaven.
It feels like all anyone could talk about in the zeitgeist was this documentary (Netflix’s take on the Fyre Festival clusterbuck)…well both competing documentaries on Netflix and Hulu. Arlyn was ENTHRALLED (voting the Netflix one as the better doc) and said it’s the kind of thing that it’s impossible to take your eyes off and you watch with your jaw on the floor the entire time in disbelief.
Jess and Julie are truly obsessed with this Instagram account by the insanely creative Mandi Johnson. It’s miniatures on a whole other level (which you know I love…future collaboration in the works?!?).
In an effort to reduce waste at home, Sara bought these baskets (one black and one white) to store and separate her clean and dirty rags. They are cute and easy to clean. This system helps her stay organized and away from paper towels:)
Joy’s layout of her new house is SO SO FUN. I love being a bystander and watching a friend build a house. If you haven’t seen it yet, GO NOW.
Grace saw this article last Sunday and it caught her eye because she and one of her friends were just discussing this topic a few days prior. It talks dining out with parents and how sometimes it’s really not worth the effort spending hours looking for restaurants, looking at the menu, scoping photos online because they only like what they already like and anything new is not welcomed. Is this just our parents??
From Julie: “I tested these wool dryer balls I just ordered and it took half the time to dry a load of towels with them. I’m shocked and amazed.”
I can’t wait to put this jumpsuit I ordered recently on all of my body parts (I like that it’s slimming so it MIGHT actually be flattering). I’ll let you know.
Arlyn has another amazing house tour recommendation. It’s the type of place you stare at in disbelief that someone could actually have a home like that, wondering if you’d ever actually want to live in a space like it, but dream of what it would be like if you did.
I started watching ‘YOU‘ on Netflix and it’s creepy but so far pretty great (a few other EHDers also give it the “so good, so creepy” seal of approval).
This lotion (Paula’s Choice: CALM Redness Relief 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant) has been Ryann’s favorite recent beauty purchase. She says that because her cheeks and forehead have a natural redness and her skin is dry, she hasn’t found a foundation that lasts the day. This lotion is really great for helping to combat that issue. It’s lightweight but soothing and reduces redness.
Jess almost impulse bought this BEAUTIFUL dinnerware set (the Kaloh Dinnerware Set) from West Elm this past week. It’s the perfect blend of modern and rustic all the while being dishwasher friendly. It’s honestly so pretty in person.
What has you excited this week? What are you reading, watching, buying (and then forcing on all your friends)? Talk tomorrow. Xx
