Oh Joy

This week felt long, yet flew by! A few snippets from here and there...I got to see the new Cindy Sherman exhibit (and go back to Yayoy Kusama's infinity mirrored room!) at The Broad. We're also working on an Oh Joy mural at a kid's museum in Pasadena (yay!) so we've been spending a chunk of time there this week and I'm all about the boba tea from Home Brewed Bar. Finally, so random...my new favorite sandals by Marais that I seem to have worn every day this week.

We'll be off Monday to celebrate the July 4th holiday. I hope you and yours have a restful long weekend, and I'll see you back here on Tuesday!

P.S. I'll be snapping and gramming over the weekend if you need an Oh Joy fix ;)

a rainbow icebox cake...30 Jun 2016

Ice-box-cake-3-blog

Our friend and food blogger, Molly Yeh, was in town last week, so we put our brain power together to make this simple and totally delicious rainbow ice box cake! Here's how...

Rainbow Icebox Cake Recipe

Rainbow Icebox Cake

You'll need:

- 3 cups heavy whipping cream

- 1/4 cup powdered sugar

- 1 tbs vanilla extract

- 1/2 tsp almond extract

- pinch of salt

- (2) 9-ounce packages chocolate wafer cookies, graham crackers, or sugar cookies

- 1/2 cup of sprinkles

natural food coloring

Rainbow Icebox Cake Recipe

Here's how: 

1. In a large bowl, beat the cream, sugar, extracts, and salt with an electric mixer to stiff peaks. If you are short on time, you can also buy ready-made cool whip. Divide the whipped cream into 3 smaller bowls and add drop of food coloring to your desired color. We kept it light with pastels in pink, yellow, and blue.

2. Arrange 7 or 8 cookies in a circle on a plate, spread with a thin layer of whipped cream and top with sprinkles. Repeat with the remaining cookies, cream, and sprinkles and end with a layer of whipped cream and sprinkles. To get the rainbow look, we layered the colorful cream in order but you can make the order whatever you want!

3. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Slice and serve!

Thanks to Molly for making this with us! Check out Molly's new book coming in October!

a diy dresser for the nursery and beyond...29 Jun 2016

DIY Striped Dresser

Our Creative Producer & Stylist, Julia, has had this dresser in her home for over 10 years. Her husband purchased it as his first "adult" piece of furniture. It's moved with him through several different apartments and now finally into his current home with Julia and their baby Zealand. Hoping to bring new life to the old dresser, Julia wanted to "Oh Joy it up" by refinishing and repainting it for her baby's room.

See how this dresser transformed from a drab antique to this modern and playful piece...
