Every Thursday I see the #ThrowbackThursday hashtag all over instagram and I started thinking about where LoveNiki started and where it is now. Sharing my passion for dressing up has been so much fun. I’m excited to come up with new creative photo shoots and put together more outfits :) I use to think it was a little silly to be passionate about dressing up, but there’s never ever anything silly about doing what you love and following your heart.
I hope you guys enjoy this mini LoveNiki fashion flashback!
The Celestial Surgeon
If I have faltered more or less In my great task of happiness; If I have moved among my race And shown no glorious morning face; If beams from happy human eyes Have moved me not; if morning skies, Books, and my food, and summer rain Knocked on my sullen heart in vain:- Lord, thy most pointed pleasure take And stab my spirit broad awake!
By Robert Louis Stevenson
Many Christmases ago, I received a children’s book of poetry. I loved it. And til this day I still think about the first time I read some of what would become my favorite poems. Have you ever been inspired by a poem?
I’m considering including more ‘lifestyle’ posts here on LoveNiki. Fun posts, random post, a little bit of everything for girls who love fashion and style but are also interested in a little something extra. Let me know your thoughts :)

I get to go shopping Sunday! It’s been a while since I last did some serious shopping. I’m definitely going to be hunting down deals to get the most bang for my buck. That’s sort of what inspired today’s post. I wish every season meant a brand new wardrobe but the reality of it is that, I have to find ways to rock seasonal stuff all year round. It allows you to have more outfit options no matter what time of year it is.
Major props to my mom for playing my photographer this morning! I think she did a great job. And yes, these shots would have been extra cool if I drove a Lambo or something but I don’t. Lol. I drive an ’98 honda civic and I love it! It’s the first and only car I’ve ever owned :)

Is your beauty budget a little tight right now? Don’t worry, I’ve been a drugstore makeup girl for a long time! I love to try new things whenever I have extra spending money but I also like knowing which products I can rely on.
Maybelline has the best foundation and powder. You get a natural airbrush finish for only $10, best deal ever. I also really like Covergirl’s cheekers blush. It’s blendable and buildable so you can achieve subtle and more dramatic looks with it.
The mascara, bronzer, and eyeliner I have in my bag keep me pretty happy but I tend to experiment with different products when it comes to these things.
I’m starting to run low on some of my makeup which means I get to shop for more soon…yay!….so if you have a favorite drugstore product let me know so I can try it out!
This outfit was inspired by…..the renaissance period! I love the renaissance faire so much. The costumes, the axe throwing, the everything! I was able to rent my costume there but I did purchase the furry hood shown above from a very creative and talented vendor. She made it out of ugly old sweaters, cool huh? This faire runs until Sunday May 19th and is located in Irwindale, CA. If your interested in going CLICK HERE for more info and to buy tickets. It’s definitely worth the price of admission!
