an oh joy party {giveaway}...NOW CLOSED 4 Mar 2014

Oh Joy for Target / Coming March 16th!

Over the weekend, we celebrated the launch of the Oh Joy for Target collection with a garden party brunch with fifty of my friends and colleagues here in L.A. It was so fun to show how the party pieces can be used at a real life party. If you haven't see the peeks on Instagram (check out #ohjoyfortarget), I'll be sharing photos from the party in a couple weeks here on the blog. In the meantime, I wanted to bring a little of the party to you guys, too.

We had some extra party favors left over, so today I'm giving away a sampling of the Oh Joy for Target spring collection to 5 lucky readers anywhere in the world! Here's your chance to get some pieces before they launch in Target stores on March 16th. This little party set includes: hooray cake toppers, party hats, party horns, happy day banner, and an ice bucket. Also, we're including a bonus postcard set with a beautiful alphabet series we created that is not available for sale (only a limited batch were made).

When it comes to gift-giving, lately I've been into classic pieces that can be decorated or styled to make your very own—maybe it's a bag with a vintage scarf, a key chain with a handmade tassel or a scarf embroidered with a special message.

When winter comes around, all I want to do is cozy up with a thick blanket and some hot chocolate.

The winner can pick from your blanket and pillow pattern of choice!

Mark and Graham | JOY monogram

In celebration of Thanksgiving next week, we're doubling up on giveaways this week! As we head into the upcoming gift-giving season, I always think about what makes a gift special and personal. I was never big into the idea of monogramming because it often involved one bad font option to stamp your initials. But now, there are way more beautiful and modern options thanks to companies like Mark & Graham. To celebrate the upcoming gift-giving season, I've partnered with Mark & Graham to give away a $500 gift card to one lucky reader to buy any custom gifts of your choice from their site.

Mark and Graham | JOY monogram

One of my favorite monogram options is this simple and modern three-letter version because you could use it to spell out a word like, HEY, MOM, or in my case...JOY. It's a fun way to personalize with or without your actual initials. To enter this giveaway, simply try out the monogram maker at Mark & Graham, then leave a comment here telling me which kind of monogram you made and which item you'd put it on (I love the opera gloves and the fold-over clutch). Entries must be posted by this Tuesday, November 26th, at 8 a.m. PST, and one winner will be chosen at random*

UPDATE: Congrats to Kirsten G. from Kailua-Kona, HI for being the winner of our giveaway this time.

*Sorry, limited to readers in the U.S. only. Please do not leave your email or web address in the body of the comment, only in the allotted boxes. $500 USD total value. Winner will be contacted by email once comments close, and announced at the bottom of this post soon after.

a travel-ready {giveaway}...now closed 19 Nov 2013

Lo and Sons Catalina Bag

I've been doing an obscene amount of traveling lately and built up my arsenal of travel bags and packing skills for sure. For quick weekend trips, I love easy-to-carry bags that fit a lot yet also allow for some compartmentalizing (so you're not just dumping everything into one giant vat). To celebrate the upcoming holiday travel season, I've partnered with Lo & Sons to give away this Catalina bag to one lucky reader ($120 value).

Oh Joy | Domino Rug Giveaway

As some of you might know, Domino Magazine is back! It was my favorite home decor magazine, and I literally cried when it folded a few years ago. I'm thrilled to see it back in print and providing interiors inspiration once again. The coolest part about the supplemental online version of Domino is that you can now shop every story you see in the print version. 

I loved the story about editor-in-chief Eva Chen's office in the recent issue, so today we're partnering with Domino Magazine to give away a Moroccan rug (similar to this Emad rug by Emmanuel Torabi Home - a $550 value) plus a one year subscription to Domino Magazine (a $50 value) to one lucky reader to spruce up a room in your home and provide a year full of shelter inspiration.
