Welcome to July!

Paper & Glam - July Life List

Welcome to July Paper & Glam Family!

I'm catching up with you from Downtown LA this evening. We just wrapped up a two-day conference for work and I snuck away to update Paper & Glam. 

Before I left for LA I posted July's Life List in The Glam Shop.

As with every month there's lots to celebrate in July!

July is heavy on the junk food holidays including Junk Food Day on the 21st, but remember there's other ways to celebrate without indulging. For example, on Donut Day I sent out themed thank you cards, donut you love it?

This month, I included my favorite seasonal read Gifts From the SeaThis book is a perennial summer classic as Ann Morrow Lindbergh shares her insights "on youth and age; love and marriage; peace, solitude and contentment" inspired by her time at the beach.

July is the peak of strawberry season so whether you're craving a strawberry kale salad or an all-American shortcake, be sure to try out a fresh strawberry recipe!

If you're new to Paper & Glam, check out the Life List category to get some inspiration for your own Life List from previous months and learn more about planning for tomorrow and celebrating today.

What's on your July List List?

Much love,

Everyday Glam

Paper & Glam - Sparkling Clean Spring Kitchen

Happy Monday Paper & Glam Fam!

I hope you had a beautiful weekend and you're rested for the week ahead. I spent the bulk of my weekend getting ready to fly out to Boise, Idaho this morning. 

Here's some everyday glam to get your week started:

Photo One (above): If there's anything more everyday glam than a sparkling clean kitchen with a fresh candle burning, I haven't seen it! Recipe book available here.

Paper & Glam - Erin Condren Kikki K Weekly Planning

Photo Two: Another week of planning in the books! I love all the monthly seasonal colors in the Erin Condren planner but May is my absolute favorite color scheme. 

Paper & Glam - OPI Mani Suzi Shops & Island Hops

Photo Three: Finished up a few errands around town with a fresh mani and a skinny frapp. Isn't this the perfect pink for spring? It's Suzi Shops & Island Hops from OPI's gel line.

Paper & Glam - Spring Glamroom

Photo Four: Kicked off a night off self-care with a Lush bath and couldn't help but notice the way the Ultraviolet bath bomb matched my Sephora make-up brushes to a tee.

I hope this series helps you see the glam in your quiet, everyday moments!

This week I'm in Boise for our bi-annual IT summit. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a video up while prepping for the trip but I'll be back next weekend with some fresh content. 

Can't wait to see you then!

Spring Shopping

Happy Friday!

As I get ready to head off to my company's bi-annual summit, and we transition from spring to summer, I've been doing some shopping!

♥ H&M
♥ Charming Charlie
♥ Nordstrom
♥ Aldo
♥ Target
♥ Lush
♥ Bath & Body Works

Self-care night got quite the upgrade with these beauties from Lush! I'll be sinking into some hot baths with a book and a bath bomb this weekend.

I hope you enjoyed this seasonal haul. It was so much fun to put together I'm thinking of making hauls a seasonal feature right along with the home tours.

Summer Haul, Fall Haul, Halloween Haul, Holiday those sound fun?!

Have a beautiful weekend,
