Diana Elizabeth is an author, photographer, and obsessive estate sale shopper. She has been an avid writer (22 diaries from childhood to college) so blogging came naturally when she discovered WordPress over 10 years ago. She is originally from Granite Bay, California and attended The University of Arizona with a B.A. in journalism and minor in political science. Her favorite blogger collaboration was with her alma mater UofA because she, “was paid to go back to college.”

In her earlier career she worked in the television industry including E! Entertainment as a red-carpet editorial assistant and writer at The Arizona Republic before changing industries to marketing and social media branding. She is a former local actress and model that appeared in commercials and print ads, and once upon a time was on the cover of PHOENIX magazine. She also works as a photographer for corporate branding shoots and shoots for PHOENIX magazine – also shooting a cover photo for the publication.

You can typically find her in her garden wrist deep in dirt, at a local estate sale or planning her next epic themed party. 

She lives in Phoenix with her husband Benjamin otherwise known as Mr. Wonderful.

    My why … Hosting parties is a life stage. I’ve become aware after going to many estate sales and seeing people downsize and selling dishes, flatware, and linens. Because I know this, I am embracing the energy, time, and desire I have right now in this stage to spend on gathering friends, new and old, to make memories.
    It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of planning and setting up, and taking down (but friends help!) but at the end of my life I know I’ll look back and think, WHAT A GREAT TIME! As I look at photos seeing friends that have come, gone, weaved in and out and enjoyed the journey of life. We should enjoy one another’s company, good friends, and acquaintances. That’s why I host as many gatherings as I can – big and small. You’d be surprised how many want to gather, and as long as the people I love make the time to show up, I will make the time to plan. ✨💕
