1. Critters of the Week

    It's been a while since we've added a Critter of the Week (sad face) but, don't fret animal fans, this week we are giving you not one but two... a happy new year from JOY to you. For a festive holiday treat, I went to Monkey World in Dorset and reverted right back to childhood; pointing, shouting, skipping etc. Here are my favourite characters of the day...orangutastic!   [caption id="attachment_2433" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Orange is so my colour..."]Orange is so my colour...[/caption]   [caption id="attachment_2434" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Monkey-ing around!"]Monkey-ing around![/caption]

  7. JOY Has the X Factor

    Imagine our JOY when X-factor called upon us to provide gorgeous garb for the weekend's semi-final shows. Of course we were more than happy to oblige; here at HQ, Monday isn't complete without the usual 'who went out last night?' and 'did you see .......'s rendition of ......?' discussions. And, perhaps even more exciting, is our Visual Merchandiser, Gary's behind the scenes experience as an X Factor dresser! (We can't reveal any secrets but we have it on good authority that the backstage atmosphere was electric). Diva Misha B gave a stellar 'goodbye' performance on Sunday, having lost out in the public vote, wearing a striking Stolen Thunder @ JOY ring while Little Mix vixen Jesy rocked a Louche skirt for the group's Motown number on Saturday. Pop/rock chick Amelia Lily donned our stunning Blue Stone Ring by Louche while belting out her stirring take on Avril Lavigne's I'm With You, it's available online now, so you too can get the Lily look. The featured items are available in JOY stores, do call and check availability first to avoid disappointment.

It turned out, I wasn't alone in my task, as

  9. Behind the Scenes

    Last week was very exciting for JOY, we went out on location to a fabulous retro house in South London to shoot our spring/sumer 12 campaign. Creating a balmy summer oasis in late November has it's challenges, of course, but we had a fantastic day and can't wait for January's reveal. Until then, here's a sneak peak behind the scenes...
