color adventures: a yellow and blue home office

This month, our Color Adventures pairing is...yellow and blue! Yellow and blue may seem like colors you'd never want to put together. BUT, when used with various shades and varying proportions of each color, it can feel sophisticated and fun all at the same time. Here is a home office we styled in these two colors....

Whenever I return home from vacation, there's always something from the trip that I wish I could recreate at home to make it feel like summer all year round. I’m always inspired by the foods that I enjoy while at certain destinations! So today, inspired by a beach vacation, we partnered with Homewood Suites by Hilton to create a favorite boardwalk snack—funnel cake—and show you how to make your own mini version at home with a festive spin!

how to shop for vintage clothing online / oh joy!

If you know me, you probably know how much I love mixing vintage into my wardrobe (I even had the Oh Joy team get glam in vintage)! Shopping vintage used to be about scouring local thrift stores and flea markets to find hidden gems, but now it's become easier to find great vintage with all the online options out there. Shopping for vintage online allows you to shop from anywhere in the world from anyone's former closet. And, if you live somewhere where there aren't great flea markets, you can still access some of the stuff that other cities seem to have more of. Here are my 10 tips to shopping for vintage clothing online...

a rainbow indoor picnic

With the kids heading back to school soon, it may feel like summer is almost over. BUT, it's always summer over here at Oh Joy! So, we wanted to celebrate the end of summer with an indoor picnic that you could have year round. I don't know what it is about sitting on the floor with a bunch of friends that feels so fun. Especially when you add a bunch of pillows and blankets and little tables...it's like a much more sophisticated version of hanging on the floor with friends than our college dorm room days. Here are some tips for making your very own rainbow indoor picnic...!

peacing things together...13 Aug 2017

Christopher David Ryan Print

Perfection is not my goal in life. But respect for other people is. Sometimes I forget that I live in a bubble here in Los Angeles where there is more diversity and openness to differences. I am shocked and saddened by recent events. While I try not to get political here, it's not political when it's about human decency and just being a nice person. I'm hoping that someday—for our children's sake—everyone can and will focus on being their best selves and respect everyone for who they are—and not judge others for the way they look, what religion they are, or part what the country they are from. I beg you...to please teach kindness, compassion, equality, and love to future generations...
