Hi friends and welcome back to your weekly peek into what’s in our shopping carts and on our minds. In case you need some filling in, this week we announced some big news (drumroll please..) we are now doing two posts a day Monday-Friday! This has been on our to-do list for quite some time and we are so pumped that the time has finally come to make it happen. So yes, you will be hearing from us more (once in the AM and again for what we are calling your “afternoon snack” at around 11 am PT, 2 pm ET) and we hope that excites you as much as it does us. Now, let’s get to those EHD links:
First things first, today’s home tour (via Dwell) is a minimalist, modern dreamboat with some REALLY fun and cool handmade materials sprinkled all over. It is a real treat.
From Emily: “Anyone who comes over to our house asks me why my rugs are so cushy and comfy (it’s truly remarkable), and it is because of this pad. This is the only one I buy for rooms where a lot of floor lounging and wrestling happens.”
Veronica bought this eyeshadow/eyeliner crayon in brown copper over the weekend and immediately fell in love. It is super easy to use, cheap, and a less than five-minute application. She wants them in every color now!
Caitlin just discovered Farm Rio and is experiencing SEVERE HEART PALPITATIONS!!! This one’s for all the maximalists out there — here’s her favorite cardigan, pair of pants, and winter coat. (From Caitlin: “Can someone please remind me what seasons are like? I just want to wear a jacket!!!! I normally save up my money for furniture purchases, but this has me wanting to start a separate ‘toucan printed outfit’ fund.”)
In a bind, Velinda had to replace her old printer and made a run for something basic and affordable. She chose this one because of its compact size. Now, there’s less of an eye-sore in her small, bedroom office.
From Mallory: “Last week, I talked about wine, and this week I’m talking cheese. I’m really not that boujee, I just feel that this is something everyone should know about. So for my cheese-plate lovers, here’s my all-time FAVORITE Instagram (other than Emily’s of course) called cheese by numbers. This gal literally teaches you how to build the most gorgeous cheese plates step by step, through Instagram carousels. Please enjoy!”
As Jess was casually getting ready this past Friday morning, she threw on Seth Meyer’s new comedy special, Lobby Baby, and she found herself laughing out loud. So if you need a funny, easy pick me up then do yourself a favor and click play.
Sara is back with another delicious recipe that the whole office can vouch for. She recently made these pumpkin muffins and brought them in. Needless to say we couldn’t get enough. They are super easy to make, really soft and moist (though next time she will probably add some chocolate chips for more flavor).
Ryann bought her boyfriend this knife for Christmas four years ago, and it is still his favorite gift she has ever got him, and he talks about how amazing it is all.the.time. From Ryann: “I do not understand what it is with men and their knives, but my boyfriend insists this one is the best, and he says he uses it every day. I must admit that at least once a week, I need to open something on the go or what have you, so his trusty knife comes in handy for me too.”
From Arlyn: “With the recent fires, I’ve pulled out my air purifier (which I SHOULD run year-round) and remembered how great it was so decided to share. It was top-rated from Apartment Therapy so I picked it up because for the price (about $85) it worked and looked great. It’s not too loud and not gross looking. Win win!”
That is all for today. There will be no posts tomorrow in honor of Veteran’s Day, but be sure to come back Tuesday for TWO brand new posts. xx
