Stop Everything: 7-Eleven Now Delivers
If you’re all about that hermit life because leaving the house for food is too much effort, we have the BEST news for you. Everyone’s favorite neighborhood convenience store, 7-Eleven, is testing out a new delivery service, so you can get that Slurpee without even leaving your couch.
Our beauty-loving selves had a full-on freak-out when 7-Eleven launched a makeup collection last fall, but the ubiquitous convenience mart just figured out the next best way to our hearts, and it involves a few quick taps.
According to Delish, the brand just launched “7-ElevenNOW,” allowing users to order everything from pints of ice cream to phone chargers and have it delivered right to their doors, all by using their official app.

The great thing is that not only can you order all your favorite go-to hangover snacks, you can get all kinds of must-haves, including Chapstick and earbuds. Delish figured out that so far, there’s no delivery minimum, but each purchase includes a $4.50 delivery fee, which is truly nothing when it comes to the convenience of never leaving your house, right?
You can also arrange for an in-store pickup if you’re in a rush and can’t search the shelves yourself, which is genius. The only catch? So far, the delivery service is being tested at 10 7-Eleven locations in downtown and uptown Dallas. So while Texans can get their powdered doughnut fix right to their doors now, the rest of us will have to wait, as 7-Eleven plans to roll out the service to more locations throughout the US in 2018.
7-Eleven delivery is everything we never knew we needed, and we can’t wait until it goes nationwide next year!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
