About Me

May 2020 profile pictureWelcome 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.

Update January 9, 2022:  I have some new endeavors that I’m going to be working on as I move further into 2022 and that means that my blog will be taking a backseat. As of right now, I do plan on continuing to post if and when I can. I’d recommend signing up to follow me either through WordPress or by email. You can find the follow me form on the sidebar or if you are on mobile, it is at the bottom of the page. I hope your new year is off to a good start. Thanks for reading!

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.

If you are new here, this page will get you started.
