design aglow diaries: new studio open house & gearing up for summer

design-aglow-diaries-052214-1

It’s been a jet fueled couple of weeks here at Design Aglow. From our recent obsession with Pinterest which launched the creation of our first Pin to Win contest (hurry, it ends the 26th!), to the launch of two brand new gorgeous products, to a fabulous Open House hosted in our new Portland studio earlier this week (two words: donut bar)... we’re gearing up for a fun and fast-paced summer. Bring on the Vitamin D (just don’t forget your sunscreen)! For months we have been looking forward to getting to know our Portland community. And we finally were able to say hi to 50+ Portlander photographer friends at the Open House on Monday, along with our industry guest of honor, Finao. The Open House was a blast! We enjoyed mingling with creative locals in between bites of donuts. Portland-based Blue Star Donuts, aka our new BFFs, catered the event with fan favorites such as Maple Bacon and PB&J and our office personal fave, Blueberry Bourbon Basil. If you were able to swing by, we loved seeing you and can’t wait to do it again soon! As you know, we are fiercely dedicated to helping improve your personal and professional workflow so you can juggle everything better while saving time and money. In the past month we’ve released not just one but TWO game changing marketing products we are loving right now: the one-of-a-kind Virtual Postcards and gorgeous Hand Lettered Poster Printables. Both are customizable, and both are complete Design Aglow originals — you won’t see anything like them on the market! Be sure to stay tuned this summer… we’ve got some BIG things coming up! Until next time~ design-aglow-diaries-052214-3 design-aglow-diaries-052214-4 design-aglow-diaries-052214-5 design-aglow-diaries-052214-6 design-aglow-diaries-052214-7 design-aglow-diaries-052214-8

Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
