Oh Happy Day + Real Simple

I have a fun announcement today! I’m going to be contributing to the Real Simple Magazine blog on a weekly basis. I love Real Simple for their aesthetic and clever ideas and am so happy to join their team. In my first post I share my #1 party tip. (It’s more important to me than the food.)

Laundry List

I have a few items I’ve been meaning to share. Maybe they apply to you!

1. We are renting out our San Francisco Studio. We’re looking for someone to rent our wonderful 500 square foot art studio in the heart of the Mission. It’s located at 766 Valencia with lots of other cool and creative folks. You can rent a desk or the whole thing. Email me for details.

2. I’m looking for a new intern! I have lots of exciting projects coming down the pipeline and I’m looking for an extra set of hands here in Paris to help with photo shoots and various blog projects. This is for someone who lives in Paris and has 6-10 hours a week available. It’s not a paying gig but I will give you all my blogging and party secrets and give you lots of high fives. Email me with your resume

3. We are accepting New Sponsors for August here on Oh Happy Day! We’ve been growing by leaps and bounds and are excited to work with companies that are the right fit. Email me for a press kit.

Blogshop Goes To Paris

I’m so excited to tell you that Blogshop is coming to Paris the weekend of October 22-23! Blogshop is an intensive 2 day course meant to jump start your design skills with photoshop, taking your work to the next level. The skills you will learn from graphic designer, Bri Emery and photographer Angela Kohler will make your blog posts better, faster, and more exceptional. I love Bri and Angela’s work and will definitely be there with bells on. Read more info on what they teach here.

It’s a Good Day to Be You

The winner of the Oh Happy Day goes to Paris contest is Beth Renaud of Los Angeles. To find the winner I assigned each entry a number and then put the total number into From there I counted up to the number until I got to Beth’s name. Writing the email to tell her she had won was one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. I put in the subject line “It’s a good day to be you.” And then told her she won! I asked Beth to tell a little bit about her reaction since we couldn’t have cameras there Oprah-style to see what happened.


Congrats Beth! I can’t wait to meet you!
