Last week I hosted my first Zoom Party!  A party to celebrate 20 years in business.

Hangin’ out with A-Listers!

Here I go . . .

Yesterday I kicked off my 20 year celebration for glamjulz!

I chose the day because, as of yesterday, we only have 20 days left in 2020 and also, December 12th was my Dad’s birthday. Gosh, he would have been 85.  He and he had such a tremendous influence on my character, always encouraging me to work hard and give it my all!

So with all of those good vibes for a start date, I know that (more…)

How will we celebrate 20 Years of glamjulz?

I Can Do It Outside . . .

Last weekend the weather was spectacular!

We were up at the cottage and I had a lot of work to do!  September is always a busy month but it’s also the month where we can have the most beautiful weather and we know deep down inside it might be our last chance to enjoy whatever is left of summer.

Local Power Couple

Back in July I received a phone call. A local woman named Meghan who just happened to find me online! Jeez, I LOVE when that happens.
