Links + Loves: A $5 Home Fave + If You Loved Bridgerton…

cozy boho bedroom

Welcome to the first Links + Loves of 2021! Let’s jump right in…

Cozy season is alive and well! We spent our breaks snuggling up, sleeping in, puzzling reading, bingeing, eating, bingeing and eating together…hbu? We’ve got plenty of things to catch up on and lots of faves to share.

But first, did you SEE this colorful Brooklyn stoop wedding?! (Screaming it is so good.) And if you’re longing for cozy season but need a change of scenery, here are the best winter Airbnbs you can rent right now. Okay, let’s get to it.

Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:


From Jen:

Such a great way to bring in 2021: this Treat People with Kindness video by Harry Styles.

Vitruvi (my personal fave diffuser) just launched three new limited edition colors – need that Rose color!!

I bought this Sunday Riley Superstars Kit for myself on Black Friday. I’ve been using it for a month now and really loving these products. A great sample pack to try some of their bestsellers – and now I know why they are best sellers! Worth the hype and money.

From Danielle:

One of my favorite bloggers, Andrea, comes to us live from Hawaii, with great food + healthy lifestyle inspiration (not to mention amazing views). She recently published a cookbook called Plant Over Processed, and I just ordered mine!

Given that winter has settled in here, I snagged some $5 faux palm leaves to keep my indoors feeling lively.

These ‘I do’ glitter flats just went on sale, and they’re so perfect for engagement parties or bridal showers!

From Jessi:

For those that are loving all things oversized right now, this sweater on Amazon was recommended to me by a friend! Based on the reviews, she can’t be wrong!

My mom gifted us this pasta maker for Christmas and it has changed our lives. We’ve made fresh pasts four times already and trust me, once you try it, you’ll never go back to the boxed kind!

First thing I’m doing in 2021 is re-doing my home office. This carved wooden writing desk from Target is calling my name!

From Katie:

If you are loving Bridgerton like the rest of us…you can read the series! First book in the collection is The Duke and I and we recommend buying from a local bookshop! Shall we promenade?

Obsessed with everything Made by Maeberry makes, including her big hoops!

BaubleBar released some new Mickey / Minnie earrings and these rainbow studs are an immediate add to cart

We made these Sesame Soy Pork Bowls from Hello Fresh and they were SO good. Easy with lots of flavor.

From Britt:

I will forever sing the praises of Yoga With Adriene. She made me love yoga back when I was skeptical and always seems to know exactly what I need to hear in the moment—whether it’s, “relax your jaw,” or a soulful encouragement. Start the year with her annual (totally free) 30-day series.

I’ll admit that I’m overwhelmed by skincare, but I’m slowly making changes based on my needs. Those needs include affordable + clean products, if possible! I just added this Versed (from Target!) gentle retinol serum to my routine. Feels like a good move.

My favorite Christmas gift from my husband!

I ended the year reading this warm hug of a book in two days. The Netflix film is equally charming—forever a fave.

The first week of 2021 was a hard one. Sending love from our team and still wishing you great things to come in this new year.
