About Me

Thank you for stopping by my site! I’m Nicki Monica and I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I married my wonderful husband, Aaron, in June of 2015 and we live with our two crazy cats and sweetheart of a bunny.

I started this blog in late 2015 as a place to share what I love most: style, interior design, DIY, food and my many adventures! With anything I do, I love to be budget-friendly. I like to challenge myself to create things and experiences without having to break the bank doing so. Growing up, my parents always taught me and my sister to be smart with our money. My sister took it to heart and that’s how she ended up graduating a 4-year University program with $0 in debt. I, however, got a couple of credit cards in my shopaholic paws and ran with them. No sooner did the ink dry on my signatures than I found myself in a little financial crisis. I had to learn the hard way (as I often do) that my parents were – *gasp* – right! That’s not to say I don’t still slip and fall from time to time, but now I know how to shop a LOT smarter.

That’s why I decided that a blog was the perfect place to organize and share what I’ve learned through the years. I will never stop being someone who loves to shop, but that doesn’t mean that I have to spend an arm and a leg to be happy. If anything, I’ve learned to be that much more creative with everything I do and if I can inspire people out there to do the same, then that’s even better! I hope you all enjoy my blog and I look forward to sharing lots of fun ideas and adventures with you!
