Welcome to this week’s Links + Loves!

We’ll waste no time and letting you know that this Bridgerton-inspired wedding?! PERFECTION. Even if you are not a fan of the show, we’re obsessed with how the team behind the day put their own spin on the pop-culture phenomenon and pulled it off with creative gusto.

Elsewhere on GWS: women-owned businesses to buy from and happy-mail subscription boxes to try. Plus, this real wedding was our most swiped of the week—it’s V pretty! And now, let’s get into some loves!

Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:


From Jen:

So much to love in this Southern Cali house tour – esp love the tiles in the kitchen!

I’m in LOVE with this clean tinted moisturizer that offers dewy coverage AND SPF protection.

In case you were wondering, pandemic brain is real—and it explains why you can’t focus.

From Katie:

Theme parks in CA could be opening as early as April 1st, so I ordered this Mickey pullover just to feel something while I wait!!!

Currently reading A Court of Silver Flames, the latest novel in the Court of Thorns and Roses series about Fae and magic! Best escape.

In light of the Meghan and Harry interview, I think we can all collectively agree that if you are brave enough to ask for help…you should get it with the help of your circle. There are a lot of online tools if you are ready to look, like Better Help, which provides online therapy.

From Britt:

On a never-ending mission to organize my life, it’s time for my jewelry to have a proper home. So, I bought a jewelry box! This system is cool because you can add new pieces as your collection grows. The classic black looks so good on my dresser!

I also grabbed this acrylic storage kit for my skincare collection. I spent too much time investigating the best acrylic storage and this one really is great — and pretty big! Let my hours of research be a gift to you…just buy it.

Coffee lovers, come close. We’ve had a subscription with Onyx Coffee Lab for a few months now and it is the joy of my morning. Come for the rad packaging, stay for the super-delicious coffee.

Did you guys see what cocokind is doing with their new packaging? The skincare brand is adding sustainability facts and formula facts to their products and it just feels like the way of the future. I’ve tested a few items but I’m excited to grab something new because FULLY SUPPORT THIS. I need a new Vitamin C serum so might start here!

From Danielle:

My favorite season: Girl Scout Cookie Season. Eat up, friends! And when you’re craving those treats in a week or so, check out this recipe for homemade Samoas!

These headphones are OFF THE HOOK. They have active noise canceling and hear through sound. So, when you’re walking on the street you hear outside noises. Safe + savvy.

This disco ball hanging planter CANNOT come through the mail fast enough. I have the perfect ivy plant just waiting to get grooooovy.

Handy Ziploc bags but make it fashun…AND way better for the environment! These zip-top bags are 100% platinum silicone and BPA-free.

From Jessi: 

Did you know Target has an entire section dedicated to black-owned and black-founded businesses? You can shop it here!

They may sound old school, but heat rollers are great at getting voluminous curls with minimal heat damage. I just bought this set and I’m loving them so far!

What’s my favorite dessert to make when Springtime comes? This copycat Whole Foods berry chantilly cake!

I’m obsessed with flowers, so this new throw pillow from Target (for only $25) was a must for me!
