Oh-joy-kids-giveaway

If you've ever shopped for a baby, you know that baby items are seriously the cutest they have ever been. When dressing Ruby, I am constantly wishing there was a grown-up version of her clothes for myself. To celebrate all things tiny, I've partnered with a handful of my favorite independent kid's brands to give away this set of five crazy-cute pieces to one lucky reader. The set includes: Chester the Raccoon from Walnut Animal Society, a bunny play pad from BlaBla, striped shoes from Zuzii, moccasins from Freshly Picked, and leggings from House of Mia (total retail value of $313). The set totally perfect for both boys and girls. The winner will be able to choose their preferred size for the shoes and leggings—from baby to little one.

Each set includes one each of these note pads and cards shown: Happy, Hello, Love, Thank You, and Birthday (a $84 value per set).

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.

a restful wonderland {giveaway}... 22 Oct 2013

Emily & Meritt for PBteen | Oh Joy

I'm a big fan of designer collaborations with big box brands because it gives a glimpse into a designer's aesthetic in a more afforable form. I've been a fan of the styling and designer duo Emily & Meritt for some time now, so I loved seeing their newest line. The new Emily & Meritt for PBteen collection is full of the same whimsical and vintage details that they apply to their fashion styling work. And while the new collection is intended for teens, I love so many of the pieces for my own bedroom!

Today, we've partnered with Emily & Meritt for PBteen to give away some of my favorite pieces from their new collection including Metallic Dottie Bedding (duvet, sheets, pillow cases, shams, and bed skirt), Bunny Clock, and Animal Wall Hooks (approx $500 value in total). The metallic dots and stripes are so fun on their own or even mixed with your existing bedding (I paired it with some pink dotted cases and a grey coverlet that I already had). I also loved clustering all three Animal Hooks side-by-side to hold my favorite accessories.

a pretty painterly {giveaway} for a good cause... 4 Sep 2013

Lulie-wallace-print

At the age of 26, on an ordinary day, Katherine Wolf suffered an extraordinary, near-fatal brain stem stroke while her 6-month old son slept in the other room.  Against all odds, she miraculously survived.  Along with her husband and son, she continues to recover and celebrate her new life, even though it looks very different than she ever thought it would. In celebration of Katherine's life and her new cause, Hope Heals, we are giving away this gorgeous print by one of my favorite artists, Lulie Wallace.

The giveaway is for a limited-edition, hand-signed and numbered print of "Flowers for Katherine" ($100 value). The original painting will be donated to and displayed at UCLA Hospital (the hospital that saved Katherine's life) as a small expression of beauty and hope for the patients, families, and staff there.

To enter, simply visit the Hope Heals site, then leave a comment here telling me one thing in your life you are grateful for. Entries must be posted by this Friday, September 6th, at 8 a.m. PST, and one winner will be chosen at random*.
