Reviewing January 2022

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, February 28, 2022
Happy March, all! One of my favorites on Lavender Elizabeth is my Month in Photos series and today,  I'm bringing in back! For those of you that are new around here, at the end of each month, I share what my days looked like from behind my camera, as well as my favorite moments from the prior month. Since I relaunched the blog in February, I never had a chance to share all about my first month of 2022. I started the year recovering from a terrible case of COVID, but ended it skiing in Colorado. Read below for the first Month in Photos installment of the year!

Mix-and-Match Winter Polish

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, February 25, 2022
I may be the only person in Chicago who is excited that it's snowing this week. To me, snow is magical. It's probably why I loved being in Colorado so much last month! I like to remind my friends that winter isn't officially over until March 20, so why not embrace the last few weeks of the season!? One way to enjoy it - winter nail colors. Over the past couple months, I've started getting my nails done again and I love it. There's something about having my nails done that makes me feel infinitely more beautiful. Next week I'll get my final winter color of the season, so I thought I'd share my inspiration with you (including what I already got this year). Enjoy!

Flannel Fling Bachelorette Party

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, February 17, 2022
I am so excited about today's post! Two years ago, I had the honor of planing my sister's bachelorette party. We did it over the long weekend in January, which meant is was a cozy winter getaway. We picked Gatlinburg, Tennessee, as the location, where we stayed at the cutest cabin, surrounded by the Smoky Mountains. To fit the cabin-vibe, I chose a Flannel Fling theme, which ended up being so cute! For all the details, including decor, food, and activities, read below.

Our Week in Winter Park

Last month, I went on one of the best trips of my life. I finally had the opportunity to visit Colorado and it did not disappoint. It truly is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Throughout the week, I kept telling my friends that it felt like I was in another world. As someone who absolutely loves winter, Colorado in January was paradise.

Now that Lavender Elizabeth is officially back, it's time to catch you up. I don't know about you, but I feel like 2021 went so quickly. My year was filled with friendships, travels, promotions, parties, and new experiences.  It was a whirlwind, but so incredibly memorable. Keep reading to learn all about how I spent my year away from LE, experiencing as much joy as I could throughout 2021.

Welcome Back to Lavender Elizabeth

in , by Lavender Elizabeth, February 01, 2022
After a one-year hiatus, Lavender Elizabeth is officially back, baby!

First things first - why did I take a break? To be honest, it happened a little by accident, but was much needed. I starting working more hours than I ever had, while also dealing with thyroid flairs, and it seemed like too much to find the time to also blog. After taking an unintentional month-long break, I decided to extend it indefinitely.
