About Lav & Eve
Hi Friend, welcome to Lavender & Eve, a lifestyle blog that aims to offer a bit of life and style information for women.
When trying to name our blog, we chose “Lavender” because of the healing and calming powers of the plant. At Lavender & Eve, we’re a bit obsessed with lavender and the oil made from it. We LOVE essential oils; they play a major part in our lifestyle and everyday routines. Lavender is the club favorite; its scent is a great relaxation aid and it helps calm the mind, body and spirit.
The name Eve” serves as a great representation for all women. It doesn’t hurt that my name is Evelyne I must say that makes Lavender & Eve music to my ears.
Prior to the birth of Lavender & Eve, starting a blog was heavy on my mind for years. I’m one of those crafty people who likes to dabble in a lot of different things. I have piles of craft projects, recipes as well as fashions sketches dating back to the 1980s. I’ve been taught to sew by machine, embroider by hand and to top it off, I went to culinary school. I was born and raised in a fast city (Chicago my kind of town) and that exposes you to all types of people, food, fashion and fun.
I wanted to use my resources and experiences as a personal chef, seamstress, jewelry maker, and wedding dress designer to create an outlet that not only allows me to share my different passions but one that would also serve as a resource for others. Friends like Mimi C. have joined me in this project.
From all of this, Lavender & Eve was born.
