MALLORCA, SPAIN

Mallorca was the final finale of my summer ’17 trip. It was the perfect end to an incredible summer in Europe. I had been to Mallorca in 2010, but only for one night. I spent five nights this time and stayed in an AirBnB in a charming alley in the heart of Palma, which is Mallorca’s capital city. Palma has plenty of shopping, restaurants and bars and it’s so nice to wander and get lost in the streets there. You can pretty much walk everywhere in Palma and it’s a great central location to stay on the island. I also have to recommend Rambla 28 for a fresh and healthy meal. I called it “Mama’s Kitchen” because it was always a woman or her daughter cooking everything in front of you in their little shop that serves healthy toasts, smoothies, salads, and the bombest sweet and savory crepes made from scratch. I literally went there every day for five days straight for a meal. It’s on La Rambla street in the heart of Palma and its …

ANOTHER SUMMER IN ITALY

Italy is one of my favorite countries in the world. It has sentimental value to me because that is the first place I went after I quit my job at E! for 5 years, to take the risk of starting my own brand and build an empire. I bought a one-way ticket to Naples and never looked back. This was last summer, and since then its been a year with lots of traveling, grinding and no sleep. It’s been challenging but I wouldn’t have traded it for the world. I had ups and downs and times where I felt extremely discouraged but knew I had to keep going. It’s been a monumental year with my growth as a brand, and although I haven’t reached my full potential or anywhere near where I want to be yet, I know I made the right decision and am headed in the right direction. I hope people will soon see my overall mission, and respect my movement. I recently came out with my own swim line and it has been doing …

MIAMI SWIM WEEK 2016

Miami Swim Week is always crazy. This was my second year going and there is so much going on but it’s always fun. Each day my schedule was packed with parties, events and runway shows but I couldn’t make it to everything, it was exhausting. The main reason I went to Swim Week this year because it was right after I launched my swim line and I thought it would be great to have a presence there. I did a giveaway and gave all my model and blogger girlfriends my suits while I was out there. I even met Tash and Devin wearing my bathing suit and they kept saying how much they loved it so thought that was pretty cool. (I love them!) Below are a few of my favorite pics from this year. Make sure to follow along my snap chat for big events like this to see all the madness behind the scenes! It ain’t as glamorous as it looks 😉 (snapchat: Nicole_Isaacs) Shows/Events I got invited and/or went to: -Galore X …

NICOLE X NAKED WARDROBE SWIM

I designed 14 swim suits for my own swim collection for Naked Wardrobe.  I am always traveling to beaches around the world and I am that blogger always in a bikini,  so it made perfect sense. I designed the suits with my personal style and body type in mind. This collection represents me and my style.  It’s simple, classic and sexy. I’ve never designed my own collection for anything before so it was a learning process, but super exciting to see an idea flourish into existence. I am a perfectionist so wanted everything to be perfect on the first run- but obviously ran into some trials and tribulations which is common. A few things backed up the release date but better late than never right! I wanted every style to come in black, white and nude. I opted out on colors and patterns and stuck to classic solid neutral prints. The manufacturer didn’t have the right color nude I wanted so we got backed up on the nude styles because we decided to create the color nude …

SUMMER IN ITALY

I had the most amazing trip to Italy over the summer visiting Rome, Florence, Sicily, Venice, the Amalfi Coast, and island hopped on the southern coast. It was a lot of moving around in just a few weeks but it was all worth it. I have memories to last a lifetime. I made this video compiling my favorite moments of the trip. Also I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures of the trip. Would love to know your thoughts on the video…enjoy!
