At the end of 2020 I had a health scare, and for the first time in my life, I was worried about my health. Pretty appropriate and typical that it happened in 2020- seemed like the year for everything to go wrong. This was the cherry on top for me… In November of 2020, I was rushed to the Emergency room for severe abdominal pain that affected my entire body. I first thought it was just cramps or food poisoning, anything but what it was. I just finished a hike and was driving home and felt like I was going to faint in my car. I was praying that I would just get home in time before anything happened. I got home and was doubled over on my couch and floor for hours refusing to go to the hospital, and convinced that I had the flu or some sort of stomach bug (which I’ve never had in my life, but definitely didn’t think it was anything serious). My stomach pain was so severe it affected …


I am SO thrilled to finally post my 2nd VLOG from French Polynesia. This is from my 2nd trip there in September 2020. It was one of the only “big” trips I took last year during Covid- I show how it was to travel during the pandemic, a lot of the “BEHIND THE SCENES” of shooting and creating content for the brands, resorts and tourism boards I work with, and I try to give a good sense of each resort I stayed at to help you make decisions if you plan to book a trip there. I really hope you enjoy this VLOG, it’s one of my favorite ones 🙂 also PLEASE SUBSCRIBE to my YOUTUBE CHANNEL. I spend so much time shooting and editing these VLOGS, and it would mean so much and help a lot to get more eyes on my videos! if you subscribe to my channel, you get a notification anytime I post a new video so you don’t miss any! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! xx Nicole


(This post was sponsored by Olay, but all my opinions are my own).  As we all are spending a lot of time at home, I am finding ways of self-care  to feel my best everyday. One of the things that I take seriously as most of you know is my skin. I barely wear makeup, and that’s because I feel confident about my skin because I take care of it. Now that I’m in my thirties, I am looking for ways to prevent and prolong wrinkles and aging as much as possible. I feel like I live in a world where everyone gets botox and fillers to look younger (which I find nothing wrong with), but if I can prolong doing those things or even doing them at all, and use a product at home that works, why not! I love discovering new products and sharing my skincare obsessions with you on here, I hope you like it too! I have tried lots of different face serums, moisturizers, and gels- I even got into using …


Back to Tulum exactly a year later! I was in Tulum January of 2019 & 2020, and I kept my exact itinerary and stayed at the same places both times. I split my time between sister properties Zorba & Mahayana Beach Homes in the heart of Tulum. They are luxury villas right on the beach  in the center of the main strip in Tulum, yet it still feels quiet and remote. There’s only a few homes at both Zorba and Mahayana which makes it feel way more private and intimate than most of the “trendy” boutique hotels in Tulum with tons of rooms. I usually stay 2-3 nights at each place- this trip I started off at Zorba for 2 nights, then moved to Mahayana for 2 nights. I wrote about my past experience at both properties in my Tulum Guide blog post- you can see more info & pictures from my first stay  HERE There are different category villas that range between 2-4 bedrooms at both properties. One thing to keep in mind if you book-these are …


Better late than never! Edited my Finland VLOG  from last year FINALLY. This is probably my favorite video to date. It gives a great glimpse of what its like traveling with me, as well as shows you a good idea of Finland and things you can do there. It was such an epic trip, also different from my usual trips to warm weather places. My favorite part was experiencing the Northern Lights for my first time. It was indescribable and unforgettable. I really had the most magical time, and hope to go back soon. For my Finland travel guide with more info on activities and where I stayed, click  HERE!

I wrote a lengthy blog post on Cuba with my personal thoughts and experience. You can read that here. And finally, MY CUBA VIDEO! This gives you a little glimpse of my experience to go along with my pictures + blog post. I love creating videos because you can hopefully really feel the moment & energy of the place so much more. Cuba is such a unique and special place and I hope I did it justice by what I’ve shared. I also hope it gives you a little Cuba fashion inspo 🙂   Would love your thoughts! xx Nicole

NEW HOME NEW MATTRESSES! I was in need of a new mattress and pillows to finally get the much needed rest between my hectic travel schedule, so I put it out to my friends and family that I was on the lookout for the best mattress and pillow out there and Snuggle-Pedic was the immediate response. I was a bit skeptical about those mattresses that come as a bed in a box, since I understand many of them are cheaply made, but Snuggle-Pedic was a top-rated company and even had the highest ratings on Amazon, so I gave it a go. I had a chance to meet the creator, Dr. Rick Swartzburg, a Chiriorpractor and sleep expert who gave me the run down on what I could expect and I told him I would review it with a fully honest appraisal as a person who cherishes a good night’s sleep! The results speak for themselves on the video, but I will say that both the Snuggle-Pedic mattress and pillow are amazingly comfortable and supportive. They definitely …
