Hello and welcome! My name is Nicole Bolt.

I’m a grad of The University of Iowa where I got some pieces of paper saying I can do literature, journalism and communications stuff. I live in Chicago and have a really rad job without a dress code. They pay me to write words. At night, I head home to my apartment with an exposed brick wall where I eat and blog. Five Things About Me:

  1. Grey is my favorite color.
  2. Grande extra-shot nonfat vanilla latte, please.
  3. Fall would be great if I didn’t have allergies.
  4. There is never enough Grey’s Anatomy.
  5. I’m pretty indecisive so #5 has taken awhile to think about…

What you can expect from me: Bi-weekly posts full of makeup madness, unfiltered product reviews and maybe my thoughts on life.

To get to know me better personally aside from what products I like, check out some of these blog posts:

    Hey Nicole-
    I hope this doesn’t come off as creepy but where is the green jacket from in the picture above? I have been looking for something just like it!

      Not at all! Thank you! It’s from Gap 2 years ago but I’m sure you can find similar ones at places like H&M or Forever 21
