You Never Stop Being a Dancer

Strong Skinnydancer back bendDancer stretchDANCER

Well, I literally danced my pants off… and I’m not sure what else to say about it. Lol

I just love dancing. Even if I don’t do it professionally or can’t find time in my schedule or budget for classes, I can never go too long without busting out a few moves.

Do you have any hobbies that you’ll likely never give up?

Love,

Niki

A Gypsy Dream

A Gypsy Dream Desert Girl Desert Gypsy Gypsy CostumeA last minute halloween costume ended up inspiring this fantasy shoot. With only a few moments to get ready for a halloween/birthday party this past Saturday morning, I threw together this simple gypsy look.

Will decided to take a back road on our way to the party and found this awesome photo spot. Isn’t it perfectly fitting?

I know most people only play dress-up once a year but I love creating fantasy looks year round. It’s so much fun!

I’m excited to hear what you think. Let me know what type of imaginative story comes to mind when you see this photo set.

tty soon,

Niki

Goodbye Summer!

Goodbye Summer

Bring on the sweater weather, the hot chocolate, and everything knit! This girl is ready for fall! I’m normally all about the warm rays of sun but we could really use a break from the heat here in Cali. And a little rain would be nice. Lol.

Let me know where you’re located and if you’re excited to leave summer behind! Tty soon!

 





A Rainstorm for Butterflies

Butterfly Kisses A butterfly cannot fly in rain. Not only would the heavy drops knock the beautiful winged insect from the sky, the butterfly itself needs the warm rays of the sun to heat it’s flight muscles. But today is different. My sparkly butterflies are completely at ease amidst my water droplet nails.

I was inspired by the name of my new nail polish, Rainstorm by Sinful Colors. I’m loving the fantasy element of this post and hope you are too! More creative and whimsical posts to come!
