The Link Up: A Happy Cry-Inducing Article, the Best $40 Air Mattress, Slipper-Like Socks & More

Happy Sunday and welcome back to the Link Up. It has been a LONG week (is November going to last forever??) so we are just going to get straight to it:

No link up is complete without a jaw dropping home tour, and this one via Architectural Digest delivers the warm and eclectic eye candy we all deserve from stellar firm Sawyer | Berson.

Emily’s friend Suzanne (her now-neighbor who has a great eye for fashion and styles her for some of our shoots) has tried what feels like every single sleep mask and literally can’t sleep unless she has this one.

If you want to start your day off with a good, surprisingly emotional read that will make you happy cry, this article might do the trick (or at least it did for Ryann).

Velinda bought these slippers for a friend who’s been in a hermity mood this fall…easy, instant (inexpensive) coziness that’ll last beyond the season.

Caitlin is newly obsessed with this crazy affordable space heater. Someone on the team may or may not have left it on overnight this week (all is well and safe, FYI…won’t happen again) and when Caitlin came into the office the next morning, she was like, “holy crap, why is it so hot in here?” This thing is SO SMALL AND MIGHTY!

From Mallory: “This brow mascara tames the eyebrow beasts and I love it because I’ve always struggled to find something light enough for blonde eyebrows.”

Jess’ best friend Casey is a modern traditional style gal and was on the hunt for a bed frame this week. After a few different options, they both decided this beauty was the perfect option! It looks traditional in shape but modern in fabric, is super affordable and she loves that it’s from Amazon so free shipping.

From Arlyn: “It’s that time of year again! I don’t use my air mattress THAT often, so I didn’t want to spend $200+ on a fancy pants version. This one from amazon (about $40) has come in handy for guests and also myself several times, has a built-in pump, is decently comfortable (you know, for an air mattress) and stays inflated all night. What more can you ask for?”

Veronica bought this duvet in navy blue last year and fell in love the second she put it on her bed. “It’s fluffy and comfortable, and relatively breathable all for an affordable price.”

Sara says: “When I wanted to make pumpkin muffins last week, I went into it forgetting that I didn’t have muffin liners. Once I realized it, I shrugged it off and figured I’d just grease my muffin tin. BUT THEN I found these while digging through my baking box (still unpacked) searching in a last ditch effort for any sad crumpled paper liners. I forgot that my mom had gotten these for me years ago. THEY WERE AMAZING. My muffins popped out of these little guys so easily and I was able to use them for a second batch a few minutes after the first batch came out. Plus, they’re reusable, and much sturdier than their paper counterparts so they can be used for other things (like snacks or mixing up multiple colored frostings, or sauces).”

Julie bought a pair of these cozy socks from Target and went back the next day to buy two more. “It’s barely cold here in LA but I’ll take any excuse to make myself feel like I’m wearing slippers all day, every day.”

And lastly, we really love Elissa Barber’s single line drawings of ladies. Her style is so minimalistic yet unique! Her new collection just launched this week, go check it out!

That is all we have for you today. Same place and time tomorrow? See you then. xx

I enjoy reading The Link Up every Sunday and appreciate the variety it includes. I was wondering though, what if maybe half of each post highlighted articles, experiences, places, etc. and not products? My husband and I live in a small space and really have all we need (+ more). Just a thought 🙂

Target has the best socks. Don’t tell anyone. I don’t want them to be sold out when I get there. 😉

I had so much fun reading this post!! I love hearing about your creative process! And I think whenever you do post about designing for your husband it will be HILARIOUS (speaking as someone who has designed for her husband) so much humor potential! now i have stated a blog bolly4u

The Bucky 40 Blinks eye mask is the only one I can tolerate. Nothing touches my eyelids, I can open my eyes and blink and just feel like I’m in a dark room rather than in a hostage situation. One lives in the case with my noise canceling headphones for travel and another in my bedside table.

I really liked the look of that little space heater. It’s so much less clunky than the one we use now, but it doesn’t have an automatic shut-off if it tips over. Living in a house with a rambunctious dachshund, I’ll never get a heater without automatic shut-off.

I love the Slip sleep mask, as well! I also have the pillowcase, and take both with me when I travel. I just slip the pillowcase onto the hotel pillow, and it improves it so much. Plus, my hair stays so much nicer sleeping on a silk pillowcase.

Hi team! Loving the list this week, as usual. I just wanted to provide the feedback that some of the links (the AD post) take you to a new tab (the best!), but others open in this tab (the marathon post). If these could consistently open in a new tab, it would help!! I know this is probably dumb feedback to receive, but I would want to know!

Not such a huge fan of product after product lists, but I do love that art is being promoted — a really nice thing to see in the mix!
