How to Make Your Hotel Room Feel Like Home

Staying in a new place in a new city when traveling can feel a little off especially when traveling with kids. Today, we're partnering with Embassy Suites by Hilton to share tips on how you can make your hotel room feel like a home away from home for your kids when traveling.

NEW Limited-Edition Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked / Shop now!

Guess what's back, back, back and better than ever?! We've been blown away by your love for our Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked collection. So today, we've got something extra special and SUPER limited-edition up our sleeves. We're bringing back two of our sold-out designs, Moon Bounce and vintage (circa 2015) best-seller Pin the Petal, in the Mini Sole style! The Mini Sole shoes are meant for little ones who are learning to walk, skip, hop, and play, so they have a rubber sole to help grip during those first steps. 

NEW Limited-Edition Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked / Shop now!

Who remembers our Pin the Petal design from 2015?! These sold out SUPER fast when we first launched them and they were re-printed a handful of times and kept selling out. So we're super excited to bring them back for this run with the hard soles. 

NEW Limited-Edition Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked / Shop now!

Our Moon Bounce design was the first to sell out with our most recent collection. So if you missed your chance the first time OR if you want them with a rubber sole, too, shop now in bigger sizes before they're gone again! 

NEW Limited-Edition Oh Joy! for Freshly Picked / Shop now!

You can buy them all now online for a limited time only at Freshly Picked

And once they're all done, you'll have a colorful new piece of artwork to hang on the wall. Here's how to make it...
