Hello, I’m Leigha! Just outside my childhood home grew lots of lilacs and a blossoming pink cherry tree. The eponymous street where I grew up is a symbol to me of brightness and happiness, and this blog, named after my home, is intended to embody just that.
During my last semester at Northeastern University as an economics major, I found myself at a bit of a crossroads. I took a job working at a software company in the energy industry, and having finished school a semester earlier than most of my friends, I desperately needed The Lilac Press. After a day at my 9-5, and while my friends were still studying for exams, I started dipping my toe into the blogging world bit by bit. I had no idea what I was doing! But, I was having fun and learning a lot, so I kept at it in my free time. The Lilac Press has become a place for me to cultivate my passions in fashion and beauty as well as to interact with so many of you who have similar interests!
I love fresh blooms, sweet treats and a good pair of shoes. My hope is that this can continue to be both a creative outlet for me and an enjoyable experience for you, while I explore what’s next on the road map!
Thanks for stopping by! Say hello at email@example.com.
