31 Day Challenge! Are You Ready? (9)

This came to me when I was looking at my calender, lining up my models for my “Ordinary Fashion-Icon of the Week” Series (go to http://www.thellexpress.com/ for more info on submission).

At any rate, how bout a 31 Day Challenge?  Who’s up for doing something kind and/or otherwise “out of your ordinary routine” for the next 31 days?  I love the Photo A Day Challenge that I participate in on my Instagram account, however my challenge will be more than photos; it will be “action”.

You can certainly pull my blog up from your mobile devices, but if you’d like for me to send you this challenge via email, shoot me over an email requesting same to: PRbyELLE77@gmail.com and I will gladly forward the challenge to you.  Have fun!  As always, starting EVERY SINGLE DAY off w prayer/bible study/worship of some kind will work wonders for your day…that is a given; no need for me to list that as part of the challenge.
