Welcome to my blog! I’m Nikki, a Military Spouse and former Government Contract Specialist (buyer) turned blogger. The military lifestyle demands flexibility and as someone who avoids change, I needed something that could travel with me anywhere.
This site is all about me claiming a piece of this world for myself. I wouldn’t change who I am as a person, but I tend to spend much of my time focused on others, and what time is left often goes to taking care of basic needs. I don’t think this is unique, but it does mean I have to put in extra effort to have fun and do fun things for myself.
In the spirit of keeping this a fun space, you can expect to find a lot of makeup (which I find the most fun) with some home decor, recipes, advice, and fashion hopefully to come in the future.
Although my posts are guided by what I find the most interesting, my aim is always to be helpful. I’m here to hopefully give you the information that you need to spend your money wisely.
For makeup reference, my best shade matches are Estee Lauder Double Wear 4W4 Hazel (can also wear 5W1 Bronze), MAC Studio Fix Fluid C8, and NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Tahoe. You can see me wearing Estee Lauder 4W4 and MAC C8 by clicking this link. My skin type is dry, sensitive, and eczema-prone.
When using my swatches for guidance please keep in mind that lighting, as well as differences in monitors/phone screens/tablet screens, may alter the way a product looks. Nothing looks the same in a picture as it does in person, so I encourage you to go to the store when possible and take a look at things for yourself.
Recognize me or my swatches? You aren’t going crazy, I do also own the website SensitiveBeautyBlog.com, but it will no longer be updated.
