I love that San Francisco has so many awesome small shops. One of my favorites is Little Paper Planes – they curate the best stuff at the spot on Valencia Street. I love supporting local businesses so one of my favorite shopping days is Small Business Saturday. It happens each year between Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a great way to give a little boost to your neighborhood economy. This year, small businesses are encouraged to partner up with local Etsy sellers by hosting trunk shows on 11/29. This partnership will give local artisans and designers the chance to share their products in a retail setting and can also provide the shops with more foot traffic and the chance to showcase more diverse products. Every small business who participates will receive a Trunk Show Kit* to assist with the cost of supplies. Little Paper Planes is participating and I can’t wait to see the designers they’ll be featuring! If you’re interested in getting involved, get more information here!
*Merchandise is only available to eligible small businesses through 11:59 P.M. ET on 10/24/2014 or while supplies last. Limit one order per business. Subject to Merchandise Terms. See Merchandise Terms at etsy.me/
I’ve been a huge Method fan for years. I use their products every single day. So I was thrilled when they approached me about partnering together for the launch of their new Air Refreshers line at Target. The scents are all awesome and actually smell like things you’d find in nature. Plus, they use a new pressurized air technology that doesn’t use petroleum-based propellant like most other air fresheners. The formula is totally non-toxic and free of dirty ingredients. To celebrate the launch, we’re giving ONE Oh Happy Day reader that chance to refresh a room in their own home with a $1,000 gift card to Target + the chance to sample all 5 of the new Air Refresher fragrances.

I’m happy to announce my partnership with eBay! I realized some of my favorite things I own are things I’ve bought from eBay over the years. So I went around my house and took pictures of some of my most cherished items for the collage below. (click through below for the whole post) I love eBay and use it constantly, for everything from hard-to-find-vintage items to new shoes or electronics. I even bought my little red car off eBay! Here are some of my current favorite collections I’ve scoured for on eBay based on my favorite purchases! Vintage Cars | Wood Toys | Alarm Clocks

We tried out Blue Apron Ingredient Delivery Service a couple weeks ago and I am seriously obsessed with it. This is a sponsored post but I promise they aren’t paying me to say that! I feel like it is an answer to my cooking conundrum. My dilemma is that I really love to cook. I usually have my kids help and it’s a really great part of the day for our family. When I have time and am on top of things I also really enjoy meal planning and going to the Farmer’s Market to get groceries. In an ideal world I would do it every week and everything would run smoothly. The problem is if I miss the one day of meal planning or the grocery trip then the entire week is thrown off course and we end up getting take out (which is expensive and is usually not super healthy.) What Blue Apron does is makes a meal plan for you (you get to decide if you want fish, meat or vegetarian etc.) and then they ship the ingredients to you for the week . What I love about it is I still get to cook and have that time with my family but I never have that terrifying moment where I don’t know what to do for dinner and there is no food in the house. I also like that it’s flexible. If we have plans to go out with friends then we can make the meals the next day according to our schedule.

Gorman is an Australian brand that makes colorful and fun clothing. (If you follow my instagram then you know I’m a huge Gorman fan, they make all of my favorite dresses.) I was introduced to them last year and my husband jokes I should have a direct deposit to them because that’s where I spend all my money anyway. I love that their stuff is so different and they have great prints and cuts. They recently launched a line of homegoods and it’s so good I can’t believe it. How amazing is that eye plate? The shipping from Australia is totally fast and not too expensive. If you are shopping for clothes make sure you get the right size in Australian sizing (this sizing chart was accurate for me.) They also have amazing sales. I follow them on Facebook and Instagram and get great deals on their dresses.) Have you ever heard of Gorman?
This post is sponsored by Gorman. One of my favorite companies in the world.
