Diana Elizabeth Blog is a lifestyle blog dedicated to home decor and simple style, and exists to be a source of inspiration for ways to live a simple and efficient life by sharing ideas and products for life and around the home. I also share my photography work and travel lifestyle. Thanks for being here!
I have 17 diaries spanning from the first grade to high school – I guess I had a lot to say about growing up. My parents named me after Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth, which very well explains my obsession with the royals. At 17, I left my hometown by the lake, a sweet suburbia known as Granite Bay, in Northern California to attend The University of Arizona without ever having seen a cactus in person. My heels cracked and I had sporadic nosebleeds adjusting to the dry heat, but to this day, because of the people I met and experiences I had, I swear they were some of the best years of my life – I have diary entries to prove it.
After receiving my B.A. in journalism at 21 focusing on broadcast, I moved to Hollywood to begin my career in entertainment television. As a red-carpet reporter and ghostwriter for E!, in the midst of a seemingly glamorous life of interviewing along red carpets, I began to miss life in Arizona. A pros and cons list told me moving to Phoenix was worth taking a chance, and so I moved accepting a job with The Arizona Republic. Shortly after, I left the journalism field for a career in marketing and branding.
I opened my graphic design boutique in 2006 and a few short years later, became a shutterbug in 2010, launching Diana Elizabeth Photography. Soon after, I met my husband Benjamin, known as Mr. Wonderful, and six months after our first date, we said I do on a snowy day in Sedona.
As I blogged about my work as a photographer, words kept coming and they never stopped. This blog has become a blend of using my three creative passions – writing, marketing, and photography. I enjoy home decor (see latest home renovation projects here), and I have major wanderlust – check out Thailand’s Phi Phi Islands and my recent trip to Stockholm.
Thank you for reading and stopping by! Remember, stay true to who God created you to be and surround yourself with those who encourage you to be the best you!
