Welcome To NikkiFree Style!
I DID IT!
After all the encouragement from friends, family and my followers on Facebook and Instagram, I’ve finally started my blog!!!
For a few years now I’ve contemplated starting a blog as a creative outlet that would allow me to combine my love of fashion and writing. I’ve always enjoyed expressing myself through writing, so much so that in 7th grade, I made the decision that nothing would stop me from being a newspaper reporter. Nothing did. I loved everything about covering the news — chasing ambulances, exposing corruption, profiling prolific people — but the pay. My paycheck didn’t allow me to indulge as much as I’d like to in my absolute most favorite pastime … SHOPPING!
As the only child of a woman who’s never had enough closet space to store all of her designer and affordable clothes, shoes and handbags, it was inevitable that I too would follow in my mom’s footsteps and become a clothes, shoes and handbags HOARDER! LOL!!! Oh and did I mention my mom has seven sisters who, like her, have never missed a sale or an invitation to a private event at Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom? So whenever my husband gets on his soapbox about my addiction, I have to remind him that I was destined to be a shopaholic. In my case, it’s hereditary. LOL!
Look at his facial expression! Cracks me up!
NikkiFree Style will offer a few things to my followers: Fashion & Style Inspiration (I love mixing very affordable pieces with luxury items), Makeup & Beauty Tips (I’m a neophyte wannabe makeup artist with improving skills), Tutorials, Giveaways, Shop My Closet opportunities and a little Pop Culture thrown in for good measure!
I hope you will enjoy the blog and visit often! Your feedback and requests are always encouraged and welcomed!
