A Pretty Pearl Sweater DIY... 4 Dec 2017

A Pretty Pear Sweater DIY / Oh Joy!

While we're posting gift guides a plenty right now, I also wanted to share things that you could make for a loved one this holiday season. This DIY could take a bit longer than most of our usual projects depending on how detailed you want to get. However the result is seriously so beautiful and makes an inexpensive sweater look far fancier...like a beautiful vintage find or much pricier version. For someone who would love a completely one-of-a-kind piece to wear, you'll want to make this stat! Here's how...

A Holiday Party Tree!30 Nov 2017

A Holiday Party Tree / Oh Joy!

Today, I'm sharing a really fun and over-the-top project with you...an Oh Joy Party Tree perfect for the upcoming holidays! Just like seasonal scents, Christmas trees bring the joy of the holidays to life in your home. That’s why I love to fill my home with the scent of Christmas. I’m going to show you how to add more Christmas cheer to your space with my non-traditional take on the Christmas tree. Today, I've partnered with Air Wick to share this DIY inspired by my favorite fragrance from their Spread the Joy Collection, Woodland Pine because of the holiday memories that it instantly brings to my space. Watch our video below to see the full how to!

This year, Air Wick is supporting The Global Fund for Children to help spread the joy to children in need.

ways to give back on giving tuesday and any day...28 Nov 2017

Ways to Give Back / Oh Joy!

As we head into the holidays and the season of giving gifts to our loved ones, I always think about how lucky I am to be able to buy those gifts for people I love. I also think about those who aren't getting special presents or aren't in the position to be able to give the same joy to their kids due to their particular circumstances in life.

Today is Giving Tuesday which supports and encourages giving back to your community and to others in any way you can. I take my team on a lot of fun and visually-inspiring field trips around Los Angeles, but recently we spent some time—not taking photos at an Instagrammable museum—but volunteering. We went to a local organization, Baby2Baby, that provides essentials for children and families in need. As we were packing bags of donated items for specific kids and seeing the basic items (clothes, shoes, blankets, toys, books) that they needed and just don't have, it can break your heart and also make you appreciate every day that much more.

If you are looking for ways to help give back in some way, here are a few...

how to make your family photos feel like you...21 Nov 2017

How to make your family photos feel like you / Oh Joy!

I love family holiday cards. I love that it's the one time of the year that we focus on getting a professional photo of our little family, get dressed up, and make it a special day for all of us. Since I know how stressful it can be to plan for holiday photos, for the past few years I've partnered with Artifact Uprising to share some tips that I hope are helpful for you...like How to Choose an Outfit and How to Choose a Location for family photos.

This year, more than ever, I wanted my holiday card to feel like a reflection of us. We had ups and downs with my husband's health and became a stronger family because of it. My husband and I really made a bigger effort to focus on family and make time for our kids even with our crazy work schedules. And we're ending the year on a sweet note, for sure, with everyone in good health and good spirits! So, where better to go capture those memories to reflect on our year than in Downtown Los Angeles and at the Museum of Ice Cream!

Here are my five tips for getting your holiday family photos to feel like you...

currently obsessed with: pink and mustard...17 Nov 2017

Oh Joy outfit

Whenever fall comes around, I think about how my usual love of bright colors often feels a bit intense during the fall. I have been super obsessed with mustard lately (like this coat) and now this comfy, yet chic, shirt and pants. As a way to bring my love of color into this rich fall tone, I've added big pops of pink. Here are two versions of pink and mustard with a pale pink jacket and a bright magenta coat...

Oh Joy outfit

When you have a cropped pant, offset that with a top, jacket, or coat that goes to the normal length and full-sleeve, so the cropping is only focused on one piece not multiple. Also, by adding a neutral shoe, the other saturated colors have a chance to shine!
