Nicole Collins


This week meet Nicole Collins. Nicole and I met almost 9 years ago in Washington DC and I have been so lucky to have her as a neighbor and best friend here in Los Angeles for the past several years. Nicole is one of the most grounded girls you'll ever meet while also being effortlessly cool. She's a radical Suzy Homemaker and has normally baked muffins from scratch before I have even woken up and was probably wearing a leather jacket while doing it. She and her man recently purchased their first home in Silver Lake and within two weeks it looked like something out of Sunset Magazine. Read up on what lights her up and makes her tick. I feel so lucky to be inspired by her on the daily and hope you are too!

What rocks your bliss? Sunshine, working with my hands, and belly laughs

Describe your perfect day. A morning cup of coffee outside, a walk with my dog and my man, some sort of spontaneous adventure (even as small as a trip to the beach will do), a lot of laughing, and of course toping it off with an evening glass of wine.

Share a huge goal you are rocking. Owning a home!

How do you celebrate you? When I am tired I sleep, when I want to get away I get away, when I need to to dance I dance

What inspires you? Seeing the people around me do what they love and share it with the world.

What is your power outfit. Jeans and a tee.

SING, what is your karaoke song? I don't karaoke! Seriously, never. I will put it on my bucket list :)

How do you handle setbacks? By learning everything I can from them and moving forward.

Gut reaction, what do you think of failure? Life's greatest teacher.

3 ways you rock the self LOVE. Spoiling myself with good food, friends, and travel.
