Daily Lovejuice is a blog on lifestyle and self care. I write about skincare, self love, nail art, stationary, traveling, and other things that contribute to my lifestyle.
Daily Lovejuice is the dream of little 11-year-old who thought internet and websites were the best thing ever. This girl dreamed of having a place on the internet where she could share with the world about all those things she loved. It was at first Manga Girls, then Tsuki no Uta, Dimension 110, Angel Kiss, NOIR no uta, and eventually, Oshare. By the time Oshare came to life, she was already an 18-year-old with a strong determination to become a graphic designer. Somewhere along the way, she started creating cute, little characters that she envisioned in stationary products or plush animals. She decided on the name Daily Lovejuice for her brand image, her little portfolio, the place where those characters belonged.
She used Oshare for writing about music, shopping, and other lifestyle interests; while Daily Lovejuice was the anchor for her different projects (of which Oshare was one) and display her portfolio, her ideas, her social media accounts, etc. But sometimes, deciding where to put what was difficult. Some things needed to be put in both, since they belonged to both her lifestyle preferences and her personal projects. So, after several years, she decided it was time to integrate both websites and have only one. One website where she could talk about the things she loved, whether they were her own creation or from somewhere else. As much as she loved the name Oshare, it had been a project under Daily Lovejuice. Daily Lovejuice wasn’t a website name, it was her brand. So, she kept it as such.
Old website headers for Daily Lovejuice: 2010, when we launched, and 2011. The love juice “milk box” was our icon, and I’m hoping to integrate it someday again.
Nowadays, this little girl is the web designer behind Sara Obando Web Studio, and she still thinks websites are the best thing ever. But her love for Daily Lovejuice will never end. She keeps this website to share about the things that bring her happiness, and to spread awareness about self care.
Au naturel—no make up, no photoshop!
If you’re curious about the person behind the website, this page should fill you in!
My name is Sara Obando, and I’m a graphic/web designer. Websites have always fascinated me, which is why not only do I build websites for others, but I also have this little kingdom, Daily Lovejuice, for myself, where I can share about the things I love other than design.
