About Me



Hi there! I'm Nichole. I'm in my 30s, and I have a definite love of all things beauty related. I'm a married, stay-at-home mom to two wild girls and a furry jerk cat named Elly. I enjoy reading, blogging, sci-fi, drawing, video games, and rearranging furniture at inopportune times. I'm also learning photography, which is amazing and challenging.



I have a deep and abiding love-hate relationship with glitter. You never truly understand how nefarious it is until you have daughters. My dryer makes scary noises thanks to these two adorable glitter bombs.


I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley, but have lived in the Monterey Bay area since I was 15...so I guess I can say I'm a local now. I love the chilly, foggy weather of the coast...especially when compared to the 100+ degree summers of the valley. I don't think I could ever move away from here.


Feel like stalking me a bit, outside of nail polish? I have two other blogs that I update irregularly. One is called Curious Pictures and it is where I upload my pictures. I've taken exactly one class, so any critiques are welcome. My otherother blog is called The Upside Down Housewife. It is pretty new, and very mom-centric. Feel free to check them both out.
