July is hot, there’s no denying that, but with great heat come great opportunities for doing things in air conditioning!
First, take some time to pamper yourself and find inspiration to do so in our “Summer Self-Pampering: 10+ considerations for looking & feeling your best” feature. Then, find the perfect piece to complete your summer uniform in our “What’s Hot for Summer Style.”
In our second annual collectors feature, this year profiling collectors Diane Genre, Quinn Peeper and Robert Phillips, learn more about what it takes to be a collector, ways to go about it and ideas for how to get started. Once you have your collection in mind, look to our feature “Julia in July: Eight stops along the street” to plan your day of art, food and more on one of our most art-filled streets.
My little work of art, my husband’s and my son, should be here mid-month, so I’m working on collections of my own. If you have a suggestion for one thing I should have for a newborn, or an event coming up this fall that you want to make certain pregnancy/newborn brain hasn’t erased, please fill out our online nonprofit events form: MyNewOrleans.com/CharitableEvent or email me directly at Morgan@MyNewOrleans.com.
Enjoy your summer and take time for some self-care!
