happy friday + tasty acquisitions…



Happy Friday folks! I have a little announcement to make about a new change taking place today here at Oh Joy…it's a sweet acquisition of sorts! I've decided to merge my food blog with my design blog for one big 'ole, {design/food/fashion} blog. Since the beginning of this blog, in 2005, I've enjoyed posting food finds here {as design and food are two of my favorite things EVER}. Then, last year, I decided to start a separate food blog to really capture more of my own finds, shoot my own photos, and make a more personal food lover's experience.

However, in the past year, I have noticed how many of the design blog readers also enjoy the food blog because my aesthetic and point of view seem to overlap in both. So, to make it easier on everyone who enjoys both {and to focus on more unique content} I've made the decision to merge them together here. So you'll still see three posts daily here, with one per day being food based and the other two being design/fashion as usual. For those of you who only want to see food posts, you can click on the Eats button up top.

Hope you enjoy this little switch as much as we're looking forward to continuing to share our favorite finds in design, food, and fashion here at Oh Joy! Thanks so much for your amazing support and for reading however long you've been visiting! Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Personally, I prefer blogs that have multiple topics because it gives it more diversity and I feel like people are holistic, and so blogs should be reflections of that too. Also, one blog is hard enough! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Yay! I read both so having them both in one place is wonderful.
    (You have me craving yatsuhashi – that cinnamon cookie in your ice cream up there. mmmmm)

  3. Congrats on the new move! I think anything that offers a unique perspective is exciting to readers, and certainly food and design and the merger of the two falls under that category. I love everything you do, so naturally I’ll be excited for the new changes:) Happy weekend!

  4. Yay! Love it! And I did love the green tea soft serve in Japan. I also got hooked on the green tea kit kats – a pricey addiction let me tell you.

  5. Yay how great! I always forget to click on your food blog so am very excited to see them combined! I don’t see any reason why you should have to have separate blogs… I like them all jumbled together!

  6. I meant to tell you this earlier, Joy….I love the type dancing along the ice cream! tres cute. And of course love the idea that you’re merging food goodness in here ๐Ÿ™‚
