Lavender Loveliness


Happy Thursday, darlings! Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Mine's been busy, between fighting a cold and a ton of work, and I'm so happy to finally see the weekend on the horizon.

Today I'm in a lavender mood. There's something so soothing a calming about it. Guess that means I'm in need of a good rest.

Have a fabulous day!

And don't forget, today is the last day to enter the Shopbop Giveaway to win a $100 gift card.
Good luck to all!

Purple is my favourite colour! Lavendar is so calming. Great photos.

MarchMusings said...

The creeper on that building is so pretty. I've often wondered if creepers do much damage to building facades. Happy weekend

I LOVE lavender. My cousin and I once thought we would be 10-year-old billionaires from our idea to make homemade lavender potpourri and sell it at the flea market...instead, we couldn't get the smell of pesto from the lavender out from our hands or our respective houses...it was an awful experiment...but I still love lavender. Great photos!

Côté Provence said...

Love lavender. You should try Kiehl's lavender body scrub ... It's heavenly!
Lovely pictures.
