Best Red Lipsticks

Last month I realized I had lost my favorite red lipstick (Illamasqua Maneater) and when I went to buy a new one I found out Sephora had stopped carrying it. I spent some time trying to hunt it down before finally admitting to myself that I needed to find a new signature red lipstick. Red lipstick is one of my favorite topics so I thought it would be a fun opportunity to do some research and find out our favorites.  We asked for reccomendations on Instagram and Facebook and then went shopping. We tried 40 different lipsticks, everything from drugstore brands to makeup counter brands and even tried a few high-end designer brands. Here is what we found out. Click through for our list of 12 Best Lipsticks

Steven Alan Sample Sale in San Francisco

I woke up bright and early this morning to go to the Steven Alan sample sale just a few blocks from my house here in San Francisco. Steven Alan makes the most gorgeous clothing so I kind of freaked out when I heard about the sample sale since I wanted to go to one so bad I was going to plan a trip around it to NYC. There weren’t that many people there (I was expecting crowds like the NYC one. So Bay Area locals scoot yourself down to 222 Sutter St to get yourself some goodies. I got a ton of their famous button downs that I intend to make my new uniform.

Here are the details:

Sponsored Post: Emerson Made

I love the company Emerson Made so I am really happy to introduce them today. Emerson Made is a company that was started by Emerson (she is the gorgeous leggy blonde in the photo) and her husband Ryan. They began by making handmade flowers and have since grown to make everything from clutches to clothing, and my favorite (skirts with pockets.) I have some of the handmade flowers and they are the perfect accessory to add last minute to an outfit to make it interesting.

The flowers, besides being beautiful themselves, come in a gorgeous yellow box. Which makes them ideal for gift giving.

If you are interested in being a sponsor on Oh Happy Day please email I’m switching up my ad system with my blog redesign and starting next month there will only be seven new large sized ads available. Prices range from $135-$225/month depending on the spot

Rainbow Shoes

It’s always good to get a new pair of sneakers in the fall, but wouldn’t they seem a lot more fun if you could choose one of every color? Below are few of my favorite old-school sneakers, in rainbow order. If I walked into my closet and saw this, I think I might die of joy.

pink, red, orange, yellow, green, dark green, blue, navy, purple


Sometimes it seems like a treasure hunt finding cool stuff for kids, this store has a great little collection. I especially like the chubby knit t-rex with tiny little arms, so funny!
