Hi, I’m Chandra, the girl behind Oh Lovely Day. I’m the wife to my high school sweetheart and the momma of three boys: Charlie, Calvin & baby Quincy. We live in Los Angeles, where we try to enjoy the sunshine and go on lots of family adventures. Some of my favorite things included coffee in the morning and coca cola in the afternoon, hiking at Griffith Park, lunch with my momma village, my mason jar collection, eating carbs, Ryan Gosling, binge watching shows, bougainvillea, dark chocolate, treasure hunting at the flea, too many things at Trader Joes, solo vacations at Target, family dance parties, and cuddles and kisses from all of my boys.
I’m the founder and editor of Oh Lovely Day, a blog hoping to help provide a little bit of online support and cheerleading to other moms, some pretty home and wedding design inspiration, a few tips, tricks, and life-saving products I’ve discovered in my wife/mom/blogger journey thus far, stuff I love for babies — basically I’m hoping to share style inspiration and practical advice on everything from weddings, home styling, motherhood, marriage, and everything in between.
How did Oh Lovely Day begin? My love for weddings, details, and DIY evolved into a passion while planning my own wedding. Then a full-time lawyer, I found how much I loved having that creative outlet during my wedding planning. Once that was over I had a creative void that needed filling, and I decided to start a blog. Oh Lovely Day was originally wedding-focused, but as my life evolved and changed, OLD changed with me. Now it is a lifestyle blog with a focus on motherhood, home, family, and celebrating love and life’s moments. And now (for now) I work from home on this blog and am a mom. I’m so grateful that, through sponsors, it has helped to supplement income that I lost when I put practicing law on hold so I could stay home with my babies. But most importantly, it has given me not only a creative outlet, but connected me with lots of readers, fellow mommas, and online (and some real life) friends. So thanks for stopping by, for reading or following along on social media, for taking the time to comment here or there, and for being a part of this community I’ve come to love. I hope you enjoy Oh Lovely Day and would love to hear from you if you have any questions or stories of your own to share.
