Last month, I gave you my June discoveries. All the beautiful things I’d found in June. Today, I’m committing to making that a regular deal. And as I said last time, please please please let me know if you’ve found something wonderful you’d like to share with me. I am waiting, with arms wide open, to embrace some amazingness.
Here’s July’s list.
Baking For Good. I subscribe to Lindsey Pollak’s blog because she’s amazing and is my biggest resource for all things Generation Y career-related. She interviewed Baking For Good’s founder Emily Dubner a few weeks ago. I’m a sucker for baked goods, so anyone who bakes sweets and then lets the buyer choose which charity to donate 15% of the profits to wins me over.
Jessica Swift’s Kickstarter project. Bright patterned rainboots with mysterious empowering messages scrawled inside. What’s not to love?
Forever’s Not So Long. I found this short film (with its busload of accolades) on StumbleUpon and fell in love. If the world was about to end and you just got dumped, how would you spend your last 9 hours on Earth?
Make It Mad Love. I’m a big fan of both Lauren & Max. Take two beautiful writers and social media pros, a design guru, and some serious faith in God and you’ve got a recipe for one of the greatest love stories yet. Read their story, sign the guestbook, restore your faith in the institution of marriage.
John Green’s vlog channel. He talks faster than the speed of light and conquers everything you’d ever want to know. I fell in love with his books after Paper Towns made me laugh out loud while reading for the first time in, well, my life.
I’d bring you sugar. You could borrow flour. Hannah’s awesome. Let’s just leave it at that. This post kills me because I’m growing up and have an unhealthy addiction to Target. And the Internet has been a serious game-changer for many of us.
Save The Words. My mother’s turned me into a word lover. Words go extinct like dinosaurs when they’re not loved. Adopt a word.
Blaine Hogan. I watched the video about his digital release of UNTITLED: Thoughts On The Creative Process and instantly knew he knew what he was talking about. Even just the video will give you plenty to think about.
25 Quotables from the 99 Percent Conference. I love the 99 percent. If you’ve never been on it, go now. These quotes from the conference deserve to be plastered on any creative’s wall for inspiration and moments when perspiration outweighs that inspiration.
Found Magazine. Found something on the street next to your car? A slip of paper blown onto your doorstep? Send it in. The whole concept started with one note from an angry, possibly jealous, girlfriend.
That’s all for July. What did you discover this month?
