Hey, you! Glad to have you here! My name is Nikki and I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me.
I live with my boyfriend and two cats (Dax and Metro) in a small rural town in Connecticut.
My love for all things makeup and beauty began in 2014 when I found myself unemployed after a string of crappy jobs and overall unhappiness with my career path. When I wasn’t revamping my resume and applying to any job that my no-degree-self could apply for, I would read and watch all things makeup related. I remember the first time I heard about contouring. Blew. My. Mind.
Before 2014, my makeup application included all over bronzer, the wrong shade of foundation, and one color eye shadow on the lid with the sponge tip applicator that it came with. Let’s not talk about the tweezer torture I put my eyebrows in through high school!
I don’t have fancy cameras and I rarely edit photos (I’ll admit it! Sometimes a little blur action puts the shadow application at the forefront of your mind, rather than those awesome dark circles or creases beneath my eyeballs!)
Basically, I’m your average 30-something woman with a pretty average (but happy!) life. This blog is meant to be an outlet for my creative prowess when I’m not working, snuggling my cats, or going on an adventure with the love of my life.
