When Arianna invited me to decorate the Huffington Post's Oasis, we wanted to create a green space in keeping with the Sustainable Alliance Center's mission. This incredible building was our inspiration. Even the furniture in the lobby here is reclaimed or made from recycled material.

DNC Diary: Rocking in the Great Outdoors, Michelle Preview, and Unplugging and Recharging at the Oasis

Arianna Huffington | Posted 11.17.2011 | Healthy Living
Arianna Huffington

This morning I had breakfast with Valerie Jarrett, Michelle and Barack Obama's close friend and a senior advisor on the campaign. She'd flown in yesterday with Michelle and the kids and heard her practice her speech -- which she described as very personal and very emotional. The introductory video is narrated by Michelle's mother, who Valerie says regularly pinches herself and says, "I can't believe that's my little girl." Meanwhile, the HuffPost Oasis has become a must-visit destination for harried conventioneers. When I left the Oasis this afternoon, one high-powered magazine editor was slumping contentedly on the coach. "I've gotten two massages and taken an incredible yoga class," he said. "I can't seem to leave the Oasis." He's not the only one.

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Arianna Huffington

r u awke??? The Obama camp clearly has a sense of humor. Not only did it start sending out its text message announcement about Biden at, that's right, 3 a.m., there is also something delicious about using this truncated form of communication to disclose the selection of one of the most garrulous politicians in history. He's also "articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." And a very good pick, especially given the urgent need to put an end to McCain's perceived strength on national security. Expect to see "Kinnock," "Anita Hill," and "Dunkin' Donuts" spike on Google Trends. The DNC starts tomorrow, and HuffPost is hosting a discussion on New Media, and also offering harried conventioneers a place to unplug and recharge at The Oasis.
