Oh Joy Field Trip: The Happy Place

After the success of Museum of Ice Cream and Color Factory, it's been cool to see more "experience museums" pop up in Los Angeles. We recently took an Oh Joy Field Trip to...the Happy Place! The space is all about things that give you instant joy...candy, rainbows, cake, flowers...you know, all the GOOD stuff...

This room full of flowers was my favorite. You can't see how immersive it is just in photos but you get to climb up through these holes into a bed of flowers that makes you feel almost like a gopher in a garden...a very yellow, marigold-filled garden.

A Refreshing Holiday Sparkler / Oh Joy!

With holiday gatherings aplenty, I love sharing some simple and quick (yet beautiful) ideas to add to your next gathering. Today, we've partnered with Wonderful Halos to share a recipe for this Holiday Mandarin Sparkler that's delicious and festive for both kids and adults.

Maximizing a Small Space / Oh Joy!

My very first grown-up apartment to myself was a 400 square foot studio in Brooklyn Heights. It was honestly HUGE for New York City standards. Living in a small space, I had to maximize areas and figure out how one flows into another when it's just one open room. Today, we're showing you how to take a super small space and make the most of it! Here, we turned one room into two—an office and lounge.
