Weekend Glam

Paper & Glam Weekend Vlog - Spring Showers

Happy Tuesday Paper & Glam Family,

Hope your week is off to a productive and peaceful start! 

Here's a peek at what Sunday and I were up to last weekend:

Highlight 1Found these sweet spring treats in the mail from my bestie and college roomie. 

Paper & Glam - Spring Sugar Cookies

Highlight 2Fresh Gerber daisies graced my kitchen bringing bold color into my home. Don't you love the bold color of nature? It reminds me to worship our Lord who created each beautiful pink petal.

Highlight 3: Kicked off the countdown to Aruba (48 days!) by hanging up a little reminder and hitting the gym. I couldn't be more excited for the opportunity to travel or more grateful to Alexis Giostra for booking an amazing birthday trip.

For more weekend footage and a look at my weekend filled with spring flowers and April showers, here's the vlog!

Thank you so much for hanging with me! 

For the readers, remember we've got book club Thursday @ 9 PM EST! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the memoir of the original glampire builder, Diane von Furstenberg.

Much love going out to each of you,

God & Glam

Paper & Glam Bible Study - God & Glam

Happy Weekend Paper & Glam Family!

This week we launched our brand new Bible Study: God & Glam. Thursday night I showed a preview on Instagram and overnight God & Glam grew to 160 members. It brought tears to my eyes to see how many of you believe in a vision of like-minded women putting a hot pink dent in this world for the kingdom of God. 

If you've been watching or reading Paper & Glam for awhile then you know that the most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ. I measure my success by the impact my life is making for His kingdom. We're all here to seek God and find the real, abundant, heart-pounding, difference-making life that grows out of our walk with Him. 

For the remainder of 2015, we're reading Joyce Meyer's Hearing From God Each Morning at our own pace. This is a dated devotional with a reading for each day of the year, but don't feel obligated to catch-up or to read along, there's no "required reading" for God & Glam. 

My hope is that we share with the group however we're led. The Lord teaches each of us in a unique way, speaking so that each heart can hear. I hope to hear what the Lord is teaching you, the songs that are ministering to you, what you're learning at church, and how we can be praying for you as a community. 

I love how Karlie Cowie put it:

This week God spoke to me about waiting, reminding me once again that this season is about putting in the work and then sitting still before Him.

I want to be a woman of action and execution, taking the quickest route from point A to point B. I want the life God has for me so badly that at times I forget that I'm already living it. 

Paper & Glam x God & Glam - Hearing From God

Success in life depends so much on our ability to wait patiently before the Lord, continuing to execute faithfully without cutting corners. Sometimes life feels like a staring contest with no, trying not to blink while we pray that God turns that no into yes. 

This week Joyce Meyer reminded us that "sometimes you just stand" in life. Just stand, that's our part, so simple yet so hard. I want to run in life and God doesn't even want me to stroll, He wants me to learn to stand fully surrendered. Life isn't just about putting in the work. It's also about having fun while we're working, waiting, taking a stand, and holding our ground.

For those of you who are either ready to find the Lord or are already walking with Him, will you take a moment to pray for this group with me? 

Father God,
Thank you for this community of women with hearts after you.
Please let us be a place of refuge where women can come to hear your truth and feel your light shining into the dark places in our lives and in your world. 
Give us servant spirits and warrior hearts to pour your love into this group and make it a place where the light meets the dark. 
It's in your matchless name of Jesus Christ we pray.

Humbled by each of you,

Weekend Glam

Paper & Glam Weekend Vlog - Self Care Saturday

Happy Wednesday!

We made it mid-week and if you're like me, you're already planning next weekend.

It sounds like you enjoyed the behind the scenes look around here, so let's bring back the Weekend Lookbook and add a vlog!

Here's a peek at what I was up to last weekend:

Highlight 1: Rainy spring sweater weather was in full effect which made for the perfect weekend to devote to Brit Lit and tea.

Highlight 2: Serious progress on Vanity Fair plus I took in the movie. Reese nailed Becky Sharp!

396 pages down! 295 pages to go!

Highlight 3More "required reading" studying up on Spring style in a Lush bath, of course!

Paper & Glam - Spring InStyle

Highlight 4Working on my review of the Erin Condren Notebooks with a Book Club inspired idea!

Highlight 5Picked up some very glam mail at my P.O. Box!

Paper & Glam - Glam Mail Days

The pink package is from the generous Sweet Kawaii Design offering our little band of planners 15% off with code PAPERANDGLAM15 at checkout. Plus, Blue Scooter Press sent over some special "Glam Appointment & Glam To Do" stickers. 

If you've been wanting to try my favorite pens, You Better Work Notebook orders will receive two matching hot pink Poppin pens while supplies last!

In Glam Shop news, thanks to your incredible support I'm in the middle of switching vendors. This will require much higher run counts (plus design set-up fees), but it enabled me to lower prices considerably! Sweatshirts are now $38 and notebooks are $18. Once these sell out you'll notice them out of stock until mid-June while I complete the transition. 

For those that made this exciting update possible by spending over $50 at The Glam Shop between January 1st and March 31st, there will be a very special sale coming your way when new product hits the shop this summer.

For more weekend footage and a look into my self-care Saturday, plus my favorite salad recipe, here's the vlog!

Much love glam friends,
