Sundays are for sleeping in, time to binge a new show and of course, The Link Up. We hope the universe grants you all those things, and great news! You are a third of the way there. Let’s get to it:
Today’s home tour has Emily’s (and our) hearts pumping and it’s not just because it is dripping with “Eccentric English Grandma” vibes (see that lamp in the corner??). It is also the serene getaway home we all deserve, so if you want to fantasize about living on a farm in the lush English countryside, go check it out.
Recently, Julie had to give up her one cup of coffee for the day so to get her excited about drinking tea only, she has been looking into getting a stovetop kettle. This one from Food52 is not only beautiful and functional but on their site they say, “When your water comes to a boil, its melodic two-tone harmonic whistle is a far cry from the ear-splitting whine of a traditional kettle”. You bet she was sold on a well thought out design.
From Mallory: “I recently read this article and it shook me. Our generation is MUCH more inclusive and men are embracing gender equality a lot more which rocks, but why aren’t we all evenly sharing home tasks? Just some food for thought this Sunday :)”
From Veronica: “I went to a fitness expo over the weekend (I know, super LA), but I found this peanut butter powder that is now my new bff. I use it in my smoothies, or to dip apples in, and I feel healthier because it doesn’t have all the fat and oils that regular peanut butter has, yet it is still made from real peanuts.”
From Ryann: “When it isn’t summer I am in a constant state of wishing it was summer, so I always find myself shopping for clothes that are more appropriate for the warmer months. A few weeks ago I bought these shorts and I am SO happy I did. I never get tired of denim cutoffs (for example, before these I had the same ones for 5 years) so I felt these were a great purchase. They are also on sale (only $40!), made sustainably, and great quality. I cannot recommend them enough.”
From Sara: “I don’t have this, but I WANT THIS. I cook a lot (like almost every day I make dinner), and this thing looks like it could be a one-stop pan shop. It’s next up for fulfillment on my wishlist.”
Anyone else late to the 2020 planner game? Cool, so was Jess. She also finds that she never uses the daily section and just likes the month overview. So this year instead of spending at least $20 on a fancy planner, she went for this simple but cool monthly little fella. Guys, it’s $3!
From Caitlin: “I handle our partnerships here and am totally drinking MY OWN Kool-Aid. I was #EMfluenced (should I make that a thing?) to try out Imperfect Foods after hearing how much Em ACTUALLY liked it and I AM HOOKED. I like getting produce (I got avocados for like, THIRTY-FIVE CENTS EACH, Y’ALL) but I am also newly addicted to their house brand dried pineapple (the pineapples were rejects because they were too dark to sell in stores!) and Love Crunch in Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter flavor. Plus, you can customize your box to fit your own budget AND you can pick a delivery time that works for you. I REALLY REALLY LIKE IT. #notsponsored”
There you have it, folks. Same place and time tomorrow? Great, we’ll see you then xx
