Happy Sunday everyone! This is by far our busiest time of the year meaning we are creating as much content as possible for your viewing design pleasure. Let’s just say, get ready for tomorrow:) But for now, we have a bunch of very fun Sunday links. Enjoy!
Ok, actually we can’t keep tomorrow’s reveal a secret! We partnered with Brooklinen to give our amazing Portland photographer, Kaitlin and her husband a bedroom makeover. Here’s a fun Webisode on Youtube that Brian shot and Gretchen edited! But for a little taste of the video, watch below! (Just wait for the short ad to play):
Also, right now Brooklinen is having their Black Friday Sale and all Brooklinen items are 20% off through November 29th. FYI, you can save even more by stacking this with their bundle discount – we’d recommend getting the Hardcore Bedding Bundle which can save you up to 40% off the regular price. Maybe this is your time to finally refresh your bedding or get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping since this is their largest sale of the year!
Speaking of sales…we sweet talked the team at Anthropologie again, and they’re opening up their Black Friday sale A WEEK EARLY just for you. Use code EMILY30 for 30% off clothing, accessories, and home and an extra 40% off sale items. This is legitimately the same Black Friday offer that folks will be getting later this week, so you have first dibs! Click here and here to check out everything that’s on sale. (They’re special areas of the site – not everyone will be able to find these deals!)
This week’s house tour is a magical home in the Bay Area of California. Surrounded by nature, Ayni Raimondi Vienna and Sean Vienna, found their dream 1921 home and fully brought it back to life with the help of designer, Shelbie Cox, and contractor, Abel Maldonado. Go see all of the beautiful Douglas fir beams!
From Emily: The new show that the kids and PARENTS are watching together. Life on Our Planet, narrated by the closest man to God we have, Morgan Freeman, is so educational and entertaining and a real feat of CGI magic. It starts from the beginning of time (literally) and we are in the middle of the dinosaur part. IT’S SO GOOD. So right now we waffle between that and The new Babysitters Club 🙂
From Arlyn: Is there such a thing as slipper season? My vote is yes and we’re in it. I’ve gone through my fair share of slippers and my comfy house shoe of the moment are these RockDove Teddy Fleece slippers I got at Target a few months ago. Veronica recently shot my kitchen and when I greeted her at the door with slippers in tow, she immediately looked down, and said “These are cute, send me the link for them,” so here I am now sharing them with you, too! They’re roomy, comfy, warm but not overly hot and, best of all, on sale for around $24 right now. RUN!
From Jess: I finally found my new pair of sneakers! As much as I want to lean into the chunky sneaker/jean look, I’ve found that I prefer a more slender sneaker to wear with my jeans. So when I found these I was pumped! They are classic but not overly popular and easy to pair with almost anything. I highly recommend.
Caitlin: On today’s edition of “Caitlin’s cheap skincare staples,” I gotta tell y’all about a little affordable swap I’ve made in my routine: I’ve officially eschewed the famous, trusty Laniege lip mask in favor of this $9.99 balm. I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the past month and during that time, THREE of my closest friends (like, we’re talking best friends here – the people I see every week!) asked if I’d gotten lip filler. It’s not a plumping gloss – so there’s no burning or anything like that – but it just has such a nice, rich consistency and a subtle shine that leaves my lips SO HYDRATED. The tube is a real PITA (I thought mine was broken when I opened it, TBH, but it’s just bad packaging) but the product is so good that I will happily tolerate the inconvenience. I’m hoping that this set of 6 goes on sale next weekend because I now want ALL THE COLORS!
Mallory: HUGE NEWS!! If you’re in NYC at all next year The Notebook is becoming a musical and my boyfriend, Chase is playing Lon (the James Marsden character) and understudying Noah (the Ryan Gosling character)!! You might recognize him from my MOTO🙂 The music is by Ingrid Michaelson so, ladies it’s gonna be good. See you guys in NYC!!!!!
Gretchen: Pants. Everyone is wearing them! I typically stick to vintage Levi’s, comfy leggings, or my Old Navy pull-on linen pants–I love them and have them in five colors but sometimes they can lean a little pajama-y. I’ve been wanting to find some more “profesh”-looking trousers and would especially love it if they could still feel as comfortable as PJs. I ordered a bunch of the Abercrombie Sloane pants because I’d heard rave reviews, but I have to say, the fit was not for me. I tried them in black, light brown, navy satin, and even in the jean version. Each one fit a little differently, none to my liking. I dropped roughly $90 on each pair (will be returning) and was done spending beaucoup bucks, so I hopped onto Amazon and found these! Spoiler alert: I love them. While technically more “palazzo” than “trouser,” they fit like a dream, have a stretchy waistband so I can actually move around, and still have pleats in the front. They’re definitely very wide-leg (which I prefer) potentially a little short, but for just $30, I’m keeping them and adding two more colors to my cart!
That’s it for today! See everyone tomorrow. xx
