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,

Welcome to June

Paper & Glam - Welcome to Summer 2015

Paper & Glam - #summerintheglampire

Are you ready to celebrate summer?!

I love sharing a daily snap over on Instagram and I can't think of a more fun or glam way to celebrate and document Summer 2015 than with an Instagram Photo Challenge!

This June, my glampire girlfriend and blogging bestie, Alexis Giostra and I teamed up to bring you the #SUMMERINTHEGLAMPIRE Photo Challenge. You'll recognize many of the prompts and hashtags like #InsideMyPlanner and #YouBetterWork from Paper & Glam and lots from Alexis' blog Strange & Charmed, such as #CharmedGTD (Getting Things Done) and #OnMyiPhone. 

If you haven't participated in a photo challenge before, that makes two of us!

Here's the basics of the #SUMMERINTHEGLAMPIRE photo challenge:

    • Share the image above (Right click & Save Image As) with the daily prompts and post it to your Instagram feed and use the hashtag #SUMMERINTHEGLAMPIRE in your description.
  • SNAP
    • When June 1st arrives, begin posting a photo a day along with the prompts outlined. For June 1st snap a photo of your office decor, on the 2nd show us how you work, and it's glam on each day in June!
    • If you miss the start of this challenge or miss a day along the way, remember this is a no-pressure all-fun challenge! Catch up by posting more pictures if you’d like or you can pick and choose the prompts you want to share. However you choose to participate, Alexis, myself, and the rest of the community are excited to celebrate summer and document life in June along with you!
    • Remember to tag all your images with the #SUMMERINTHEGLAMPIRE hashtag so Alexis, myself and the rest of the Glam & Charmed community can search through the feed and follow along with each of you.
