A Look Back at 2018

December 29, 2018

Hi everyone!  Lin and Alex here.  It’s the end of the road for 2018 and we wanted to hop on and talk about this year.  It has gone by so crazy fast and has also been one of the most amazing years of both of our lives.  SO much has happened, changed, and grown this year.  Here are some of our top moments of 2018!

Café Lola:  Of course one of our top moments from 2018 was opening our café in Las Vegas.  The café has definitely become a hotspot winning Eaters Readers Choice for Most Beautiful Restaurant 2018 and being featured in Vegas Magazine!  It is such a special place to both of us as we put so much hard work and love into the space.   To top things off we were asked to be the first Pop-Up Coffee Shop in Macy’s in the history of the store. We were so excited and honored to be asked.  It has been amazing to seeing the space and being apart of the Macy’s family!



Babies: We absolutely had to put this more personal note in here.  We welcomed Sophie into this world in 2018 AND found out the Lin would be having her future bestie in 2019. Learning how to balance pregnancy, becoming a mom, and running multiple businesses has definitely taught us a lot.  It has been so great going through these changes at similar times.  It does take a village and we’re happy to be apart of each others.


Blog Launch: Launching All Things Refined this year has been such a fun experience.  Having this outlet of creativity and being able to share our experiences, style, beauty, career tips, and more has been something we both really enjoy.  You can see more about the actual blog launch event here!



Women Who Slay:  Our last top moment this year was our Women Who Slay event. Women Who Slay is our annual event celebrating the hard work and success of some of the nation’s most inspiring female influencers and entrepreneurs who have made their dreams their reality.  We met so many wonderful women here and learned a ton from them. These events do serve as a way to learn but also connect us with amazing people.  We’re so grateful to be able to host and can’t wait for WWS 2019!

These were just a few of the incredible moments from 2018.  We so appreciate you following along on this ride with us.  Make sure to have a Happy New Year and let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see from us in 2019 in the comments below!
