Weekly Roundup - June 1, 2018

How did it get to be June again already?!

Let's get this summer started!

Next week is the first anniversary of the Design+Style Visibility Challenge. Can you believe it? So, of course, we're going to host an all-new Visibility Challenge Monday through Friday. (Was there ever any doubt?)

Each day we'll add a new assignment in the Visibility Challenge Learning Unit in the Design+Style Club. (You'll be able to find posts from past Visibility Challenges there, too.)

We're also adding a fun, new feature to the Club: Cocktails & Connections. Find out more below!

Now, I'm off to get ready for tonight's shenanigans. See you there!

Let's kick off summer by hanging out together online and getting to know each other just a little better. Fun, GIFs, and shenanigans will abound!

This will be a come-and-go event, so don't worry if you can't be there the whole time. Just plan to spend a little time getting visible with your fellow Design+Style Club members ahead of next Visibility Challenge (June 4-8).

We'll wrap up with a Connections livestream into the event at 7 PM Eastern/4 PM Pacific. You can watch here on Facebook or join us on Zoom ( https://zoom.us/j/792131725 ). See you tonight! (And bring your cocktails!)
