A Day In The Life: Joy Cho of Oh Joy!

Share It

Over the past (almost) twelve years of working online, the world of blogging has changed and grown exponentially. But since the early days of blogging in the early 2000s, there have been a small handful of people working online that I’ve known, trusted and admired for their creativity, originality and perseverance. Joy Cho is one of those people and I’ve so enjoyed watching her life change and grow as she got married, had her two wonderful little girls and turned her blog into a thriving design business. This week she launched her latest collection with Target and it made me curious what a day in her current life is like. Both of our lives have changed significantly since our early days of blogging and it’s so fun to see how she she spends her days now. From spending time with her little ones to designing new collections and working on posts for her blog, Joy is always on the go and I’m so happy she had time to share a little peek inside her day with us today. xo, grace
