Comfortable Sunday everybody. We had a HUGE announcement on Friday over on Instagram in case you missed it. Far more on that quickly. We additionally hope you liked Emily’s new toilet as a lot as we do. It’s actually even higher in particular person when you can consider it. Okay, onto this week’s hyperlinks:)

This week’s home tour is the loft residence of our desires. Owned by Orior’s inventive director, Ciarán McGuigan, and his spouse, and with design assist from Orior’s head of design, Jean Morana, this Brooklyn loft is simply so particular. Crammed with items by this personal model in addition to handmade items from different artists, and naturally, classic to create a very cool but not overly fashionable or industrial house. Go test it out and have enjoyable drooling over all of the glass lighting.

From Emily: My “I’m so drained however my pores and skin must look good” routine is occurring greater than I would like it to as of late. And hear, it’s arduous to say that ONE THING is nice on your pores and skin when so many components contribute to your pores and skin well being (life-style, eating regimen, sleep, chilly plunging:), and so on. However even on the times once I get up trying fairly darn drained, haggard, and uneven, this highlighter (Charlotte Tilbury) blended with my Armani Luminous Silk basis in shade 2) makes me look all glowy and dare I say wholesome. Let’s name it my winter “drained mother” magnificence hack. FYI the Sephora Financial savings Occasion absolutely begins on Tuesday until you’re a rogue member:)

From Caitlin: AHH! Lemme put y’all onto a hair game-changer for lazy gals in all places: this $40 thermal blowout brush. I’ve by no means been nice at hair – I didn’t discover ways to use a curling wand til 2019 and I nonetheless can’t use a standard curling iron, TBH – however OH MY GOSH. This brush – consider it like a heated straightener-meets-round brush – HAS CHANGED THE GAME. I’m at the moment strolling round my home with a bouncy blowout that took me MINUTES to perform (and nary a hairdryer in sight!). There’s a little bit of a studying curve (primarily the place to position your hair – I saved getting it caught within the deal with throughout my first attempt, which once more, could have simply been as a result of I’m so unhealthy at hair instruments) however as soon as I found out the method, it was fast and simple and my hair seems SO DANG GOOD. The layers are layering, of us!!! It actually seems like I simply left a salon. AND IT WAS $40. AND I DID IT AT MY HOUSE. Convey on all the vacation images!!!

From Gretchen: First, I have to subject an enormous, fats THANK YOU to all who commented on final week’s hyperlink up with suggestions for locating my perfect-puffy-matte-black-coat. There have been so many good ones!! Just a few of you wrote that you just have had luck with Quince, and there mayyyy have been another gadgets that by accident fell into my cart, so I went forward and purchased that coat. Somebody talked about having discovered an important vegan coat at Noize, a model I hadn’t but heard of, and I assumed quite a lot of their puffer coats seemed like strong choices–specifically this one caught my eye. However I shopped round for a bit and as a substitute discovered an superior, non-puffer, double-breasted inexperienced coat that I simply may need to snag! A few you talked about Marmot and whereas I cherished this coat, (which is on sale!) it’s a bit out of my worth vary, nonetheless. Then a bunch of you beneficial Eddie Bauer! I discovered a rain jacket from them I actually just like the match of (plus the truth that it’s on sale) so I’ll seemingly seize that for my less-cold, however nonetheless very moist Oregon days. That they had one other nice puffer contender, so if the Quince coat doesn’t work out, I’ll most likely head there for my subsequent shot at puff-perfection! Thanks all, once more, for the assistance!!

Additionally From Gretchen: My buys this week have been so much much less outdoor-oriented. These days, my at-home laptop setup has been driving me nuts! Too many messy cords and a monitor mount I’ve fallen out of affection with. My place is pretty outdated with retailers which might be largely two-prong so discovering an influence strip that doesn’t require a converter jutting out from the wall is hard. However I discovered an superior one that not solely works with my historic retailers, however sits flat in opposition to the wall AND offers me 6 three-prong retailers! I additionally swapped my outdated monitor wall mount for this one (in white, a plus) that goes up and down so I can use it sitting or standing. I can’t wait to change all of it out!

From Mallory: Should you’re searching for some last-minute Halloween candles (or simply fall candles on the whole) these dripless ones are 4 for $8 and I’ve by no means seen a greater deal in my life!! They’re on the skinnier facet, however they’re so cute and would look nice in a eating room or on a candelabra (which is the place I take advantage of mine!)

From Jess: OK, so I do know that I talked about just a few sweaters I used to be pondering of getting for my London journey a few weeks in the past (this one and this one) and I nonetheless would possibly add to cart. However after getting beneficial this extra inexpensive model, City Revivo, I fell deeply in love with this particular cardigan and instantly bought it. My god I really like that gold button. Oh, these boots are additionally unimaginable too! Now the issue with this model is that I consider they solely go as much as a dimension 12 WHICH SUCKS. However hopefully, with on-line mentions like this, they may get their act collectively and supply a a lot wider vary of sizing. It’s simply not arduous to supply extra sizes and it must be the usual. My favourite size-inclusive model is Wray if anybody desires to examine them out:)

Additionally From Jess: I do know Em simply talked about her make-up hack however I even have some make-up recs as one in all my pricey buddies simply helped me plan my make-up search for my brother’s wedding ceremony…and the Sephora Financial savings Occasion simply began on Friday in case you are a Rogue member. Should you aren’t, it begins on Tuesday! I’m tempted to offer you ALL my recs however we’d be right here all day. So listed below are some highlights. This Patrick Ta Matte Eyeshadow Palette is so GOOD. I really like matte neutrals so it’s a dream for me and the colour goes on superbly. It additionally comes with two gel shadows which have been so enjoyable to play with and I wouldn’t have bought on their very own (aka I might have been scared to attempt). It’s dear so it is a good time to purchase in case you are . Talking of the nice Mr. Ta, I additionally acquired his Precision Twin Ended Sculpting Brush. I really like a two-fer and for a make-up novice like me makes “sculpting” simpler. I purchased it with this actually stunning bronzer in gentle medium (which I take advantage of the much less fluffy facet of the comb with).

Additionally Additionally From Jess: Okay, three extra recs however all lip-related. I’ve cherished the Sephora Collections Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick for a very long time. This pink (01 All the time Crimson) is what made me a believer as a result of it can keep on alllll night time lengthy. So once I wanted a nude shade I went straight to this part and located 120 Mystic Cloud. It’s so good (properly I can solely communicate for my pores and skin tone). My good friend beneficial I get a lip liner to go along with it known as “29 dressed to the 90s”. Then to high it off with a bit gloss she beneficial this gorgeous plumping serum. 10/10 lips! FYI the Sephora Assortment is 30% off proper now till 11/6:) The code for the complete occasion is TIMETOSAVE.

From Arlyn: IKEA is my traditional go-to for frames as you simply can’t beat that worth. However not too long ago, I really feel like the standard has gone down. Has anybody else observed the body lifts away from the plexi within the center once you hold them now? This has occurred to me with quite a few RIBBAs particularly, so possibly it’s simply that line. Anyhow, I used to be going to hold some artwork and picked up this brass body on Amazon randomly as a result of the worth was superb and the opinions have been strong. And guys, it’s nice! It was packed so properly, has a tempered glass entrance reasonably than plexi, the brass is comfortable and fairly and it is available in a ton of sizes. Very proud of this buy, for certain. (P.S. Please share when you have an excellent supply for inexpensive frames!) 

Additionally from Arlyn: I acquired the itch about two weeks in the past to do yoga. It type of got here out of nowhere, as I’ve by no means been an everyday practitioner of the train. However typically, that’s simply how issues occur, you understand? After I put the infant to sleep, I went to my room, rolled out my yoga mat and hit up YouTube for a category. I instantly discovered Yoga with Adriene who was completely new to me however is evidently fairly standard. On a whim, I watched the primary video in her “Heart” 30-Day Yoga Journey and LOVED IT. I got here downstairs to my husband and instructed him I used to be going to do 30 days of yoga. He’s not a stranger to my random and sudden have to embark on one thing new, however by the point I acquired to day 3, he was on his personal mat in our room becoming a member of me. We’re on day 11 now (I repeated days 0-3 for Charles) and I actually stay up for all of it day. It’s my time to unwind, heart myself, and get in some train that doesn’t really feel like I’m pounding the pavement. Should you’re trying to get into one thing mild however difficult, that is it. Do it with me after which hit me as much as let me know the way it’s going (discover me on Instagram!).
