When the founder has been a keynote speaker offering advice to the minds at Pinterest and Target, you know the business has to offer something good. Oh Joy! is a lifestyle brand that offers products and how-to advice, all that celebrate or create the various joyful moments found throughout everyday life.

The range of products the brand offers is huge — accessories, art prints, decor, tech, travel items and even some vintage goods. They’ve also collaborated with brands like Cheeky (paper goods found in Target) and Band-Aid.

The online shop is rather small, but with fewer options to choose from, it’s not overwhelming and, if you like the brand itself, you’re almost guaranteed to love the different items available. Everything is bright or pastel colors, in fun designs that have a little something extra — like the gold legs on this settee. This and other decor pieces are made to order and start at $670.

Quite adorably, the brand offers kids’ items, like baby carriers and even baby carriers for your baby, in case a toddler-sized person wants to carry their doll around in high style. You can also get a child’s armchair in an identical pattern to that of the adult-size armchair. Kids decor includes hot pink and metallic mobiles and sequin-covered foxes.

The travel items include packing cubes and carry-on rolling suitcases, starting at $48 for the cubes and $135 for the suitcases. Designs range from a sunset-inspired rainbow motif to confetti. You certainly won’t have trouble picking your bag out from the crowd at the airport.

If all of the above sounds great, but you just don’t have the budget at the moment, no worries. You can settle for a different option — the founder Joy Cho’s book for just $15 on Amazon. Oh Joy!: 60 Ways to Create & Give Joy provides tips and tricks for just that, from how to pick out your clothes to making your own wallpaper to creating fun snacks and handmade gifts.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Renting a car will give you the freedom to explore Northern Ireland, small enough to be accessible even for those on shorter trips.
