The June @popsugarmh #MustHaveBox got me like ☀️😎 Who’s in for a lake trip? #sponsored (And no, the snacks did not last long enough to make it into the photo 😂)
Dining room update is taking shape! Now let’s see if I can manage to keep these plants alive 😂 Candle kindly provided by @flashpoint_candle (#prsample)
When it’s already been a long day by lunchtime can you think of a prettier spot to sit and unwind? 😍 Recently found out there’s a cutting garden at one of the retirement homes here in Lex so I spent a little while wandering around today. Flowers & herbs are under $1/stem so I know where to go for flowers now!
Hope you babes had a great holiday! Day off for me = planning day of course. I like to decorate according to my mood so I’m in 💕 with all the @ErinCondren sticker sheets w/the neutral #LifePlanner

I know yoga is such a stereotypical blogger thing to post pictures of but I’m embracing it! 😂 So today’s blog post is my yoga bag essentials
My arsenal of beauty gadgets just got a little bigger! Stay tuned for a blog post later this week on how I’m using @himirror_us to help me test some new skincare goodies #sponsored Shop-> http://primp.in/oBOvHojc3o
Got them #friyayvibes today because I can finally get back to work on my living room refresh this weekend! Here’s a little sneak peek – obviously there’s still a ton left to do. Now I just need my dining chairs to get here so I can pick fabric for window coverings. Dining table is a #diy, new couch is from @joybird
Hellooooo summer! ”Tis the season for sheer products and @pixibeauty is bringing their A game #prsample
I’m way excited because 1) today is my Friday and 2) there are some semi-major changes coming up for Lipstick Latitude soon! Keep an eye out early next week because of course I’ll be celebrating with a little giveaway 😘
It’s taken me a while to get back in work mode after vacation, so I’m easing back into it by talking about…. vacation 😜 Latest blog post is all about streamlined packing for a long-ish trip
File under: impulse buys 😂 Spent our Friday night at the National Ave block party aka picking up some delicious macarons from @lapetitedelicat & chatting about stickers w/Nate from @natescoffee
My jealousy over @ohthewerewolf’s Sephora Play boxes finally got the better of me and I signed up! Pretty pleased with the first one. I’m not a fan of Porefessional but I’m really stoked about the @supergoop SPF setting spray and can’t wait to try out some new curl-taming supplies 😍
Just a little @sephora haul to restock on my HG @armanibeauty master corrector & trying a new primer. I went a little wild with the promos and point perks though! 😜
Hot summer days call for big sunnies and bright lips ☀️ Wearing the @diormakeup Lip Tattoo in Natural Cherry here. I try not to use the word ‘obsessed’ too much but in this case I really am! It’s full coverage, long wearing, lightweight and not drying at all. I only wish they had more colors
When @Clarisonic has a F&F sale it’s easy to get a little carried away. #clarisonic
For those who wanted to know more about the new @erincondren LifePlanners, here are some comparison photos! #sponsored The new hardbound version are a bit bigger and heavier (2oz, according to my food scale) but a bit slimmer. They have more writing room, and a nice soft touch cover like a NARS compact. On the other hand, the coil bound version has more cover customizations & add ons. The paper for the 2018 editions is thicker & smoother, which gets a big 👍 from me. They’re still doing 15% off w/code GetSocial15, so you can get a deal on whichever version is your jam. #ECLifePlanner #ErinCondren
Home sweet home for the next week! @airbnb Be sure to keep an eye on my stories this week because I’ll have WAY too much food & music to post it all on my feed. #ilovenewyork #airbnb
Less than 24 hours until I’m on a plane for a fun week of music & tattoos in NYC! Got my outfits & activities all planned out 😍 (travel insert for the @ErinCondren spiral bound Life Planner is super handy) #sponsored #ECLifePlanner #ErinCondren New planners for 2018 are available now & 15% off with the code GetSocial15 (or first-timers can get $10 off here: http://bit.ly/NikkiECDiscount)
A little brush bath time for the ones traveling with me #vacaymode (drying & cleaning bars from @getbrushbar) #prsample
Spending the morning with four-footed friends at the #woodfordwag for @woodfordhumane. Look at this adorable face! And yes, Biscuit here is adoptable
#sponsored A couple little bits of advice headed into the weekend! Here’s a little sneak peek of the brand-spankin-new @ErinCondren hard-bound LifePlanner for 2017-2018 – I’ve got a huge to-do list before I leave on vacation next week but gotta be honest, I kind of just want to stare at it because it’s so pretty.

Can’t wait to hop into a bath with the new @renskincare kelp & magnesium body care range (#prsample) after my workout this evening! What do you do for some post-exercise TLC? They’re doing a giveaway of the entire range (closes May 25th) so head on over to their profile if you want to try it out -> @renskincare
Today’s #makeupmess #palmbffs
Yeah it’s official, I want these in every color! I ended up getting black since by the time I reordered the flax ones were sold out in my size. A 7 is a perfect fit and they’re soooo comfortable. Once I’m able to give them an extended test I’ll do a full review on the blog. If you want $20 off a pair my referral link is http://rothys.refr.cc/niccig
As much fun as it is to cover yourself in glitter, today’s blog post is about the beauty bits you REALLY need to take with on your music festival trip #govballnyc #palmbffs
Another from yesterday because dat @tomford counter at @cosbar #tomfordbeauty #palmbffs
Adding some color to my wardrobe, what do you think? Everything in the new @draperjames store in @thesummitatfritzfarm is SO adorable! #draperjames #sweettea #southernstyle #palmbffs
Current flower obsession. I’ll definitely be planting some of these bad boys in my yard this fall! Luckily in the meantime @bellaireblooms has it covered. #peoniesaremyfavorite #palmbffs
I finally found the perfect wallet/clutch to replace the old & busted one I was using 🙌 The grey matches my entire wardrobe & that pop of blush on the inside #swoon PLUS it was a cheapie #tjmaxxfinds 😜 @londonfogbrand
Had an awesome day with some of the most inspirational ladies in Lexington! And what better way to wind it up than with a glass of rosé? #sitwithuslex
Woohoo, my @rothys shoes got here! They’re just as cute IRL as online and did I mention they’re made of all recycled/recyclable materials? Alas they’re a little too big so these’ll be going back for another size. First impression is a big 👍 though! #liveseamlessly Edit: in case anyone wants it, my friend referral is http://rothys.refr.cc/niccig – you get $20 off and so do I 👏
You guys, @ybfbeauty sent over a few goodies to test out (#prsample) and I think I’m in 💗 I’m especially excited about the glossy finish liquid lipsticks – full coverage, great shine & not sticky at all #swoon Stay tuned for a full review on the blog
Awwww yiss, wristbands are here! #govballnyc
Another #diyhome project – see what happens when I take a few vacation days? 😂 Managed this one for the low low cost of $0 because for some reason we have a bunch of cinder blocks in our basement and I thieved some shelves from the closet. What are your favorite ‘on the cheap’ home hacks? #homediy #pinterestproject
Today’s blog post is about what to do when it’s 3 o’clock in the morning and you’re somehow still wearing makeup.
Woohoo! A few months ago I found an adorable vintage Kroehler chair on @ebth and I FINALLY finished reupholstering it today! It’s not 100% perfect but I’m still in ❤️❤️❤️
Makeup o’ the day because if you can’t wear blue mascara to a concert where can you?
My trusty @trishmcevoy organizer has been all over the US & parts of Spain with me, and now it’s almost time to pack it up for NYC! I hear it’s Trish’s birthday so be sure to check out her latest instagram post and give her some 💗
Days like today were MADE for bike rides!
Is it just me, or do the @Sephora favorites sets at the @jcpenney stores always seem a lot better? I’m kind of regretting not picking this one up during the sale, I may need to go back for it! If only because I’ve never tried a real @beautyblender before and I feel like I really should.
Tuesday prettiness! 💋
A great topic popped up on Reddit about beauty routines and chronic illness, and I realized I have lots of thoughts about that! So today’s blog post has some real talk about ways to hack your beauty routine when you literally just can’t even #spoonielife #spooniebeauty
Doing just a little more testing before I hit the sale!
Because Tuesday at the office seems like a perfectly good occasion to get fancy!
This week is the spring @sephora sale so my latest blog post is all about what to buy – it’s probably not what you’re thinking though 😋 On another note I’ve been playing with different tools to help link to posts & products I mention on instagram. If you want to click on the link in my bio I’d ❤️ any feedback on whether my latest attempt makes stuff I mention here easier to find.
The @clarisonic foundation brush is the newest one out but it definitely wasn’t the first. I’m curious how the @michaeltoddbeauty sonicblend & @blendsmart brushes stack up, so this is my makeup life for the next couple weeks. I’ll be reviewing them each and then doing a summary/comparison so keep an eye on my youtube if you’re curious about them too! #prsample
You all seemed pretty excited about the new @clarisonic foundation brush when I posted it the other day, so I filmed a first impressions video about it!
Weekend agenda: coffee, dancing and getting a jump start on next week! Got any big plans? @erincondren #ECLifePlanner #girlsnight #sponsored
I know I JUST did a liquid highlighter roundup but the other day @influenster sent me a free #voxbox with @marcbeauty Coconut Glow. So here’s more highlight porn!
I’d love to know how many jokes were made about alternative uses for the @clarisonic Mia FIT before someone was like ‘actually I bet it would be great for foundation’ 😄 My foundation brush head just arrived yesterday so there will be a review very soon! Full disclosure- the Mia FIT was a #prsample from ages ago, the new brush head was bought by me
I’ve seriously been feeling the ‘no-makeup’ look lately so today’s blog post is all about my recipe for makeup laziness 😉
Repost from my story on Saturday – I declare @pirieboutique to be the most instagrammable store in Lexington! Srsly, they have the cutest stuff. #sharethelex
Today’s prop haul from @michaelsstores & @marshalls – all fake bc real flowers die too fast! Also one of those sigma brush cleaning mat knockoffs because it was $7 so why not?
It’s Friday and I’ve got makeup and coffee 😁 #thegoodlife
