Links + Loves: A DIY for September + all the Ways We’re Prepping for Fall

beginner weaving kit DIY

Welcome to another edition of Links + Loves! Let’s jump right in…

Is it summer? Is it fall? Whatever it is, we’re all feeling the itch for a new season so we’re leaning into the Halloween planning and fall scents. How ’bout you?

We get lots of DMs, especially when we ask your thoughts on new content for GWS. We’ve been hearing a lot of questions about planning a honeymoon right now and if there’s one thing we know, it’s that 2020 couples NEED a getaway. We put together this post to help you out. Pack your bags and enjoy.

Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:


This cult-favorite best-selling pan just launched a brand new color!

I’m just realizing how amazing Etsy is for dried floral decor (among other things, we know)! Recently, I ordered this dried fall bouquet to sit on my dining room table ’til the holidays.

Looking for a fun DIY project for this month? How about this one?

One of my favorite authors, Rupi Kaur, has these amazing feminist t-shirts for sale, and I’m ordering one ASAP! Also waiting for her third book to come out – yay!

If you need feel-good, health inspo straight from Hawaii, follow @earthyandy on Instagram and enjoy allll the delish recipes.

A statement piece for your vase (that requires no watering).

We’ve been in the mood to organize our pantry (to make way for all the Halloween candy, of course) so we’re snagging a couple of these!

These initial necklaces would make the sweetest gift.

Two of our editors have ordered this top, so you know its good!

Need a little Halloween decor help on the front porch? This accent rug is perfect and on sale this weekend! Can’t wait to layer it under my doormat.

Current show we are binging? Watchmen on HBO.

I needed a new diffuser and while this one is the dream, I ordered this more affordable one that’s super cute for same-day delivery and I love everything about it!

On the subject of scents, I also ordered a few of these candles — the cedar magnolia is the perfect summer to fall transition scent.

Hands down, the best Netflix movie I’ve seen in a while.

For all my fellow animal lovers, these dessert plates and coffee mugs are the cutest!!

Favorite pants for Fall? These two-tone straight leg jeans! They’re a little bit funky and definitely modern!

Is it insane to make your own hamburger buns? I vote no. Because I made these very easy 40-minute buns last week and they tasted like heaven.

And a few sales we’ll be shopping this Labor Day Weekend:

This cropped sweatshirt and oversized tie-dye hoodie + jogger combo from Aerie.

These vintage gold huggie earrings from Kendra Scott.

These cozy goddess leggings from alo.

And this oversized jean jacket from Madewell!
