Based in Vancouver, BC, I completed my Bachelor of Arts Degree at Simon Fraser University (2011) before returning for studies in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. When I was forced to withdraw due to mandatory bedrest near the end of my pregnancy (and the semester), I decided to launch my first blog.
I had a lot of time on my hands and discovered Influenster and ChickAdvisor! When I was selected for my first free products in exchange for social media reviews, I became hooked! I loved this concept and wanted to tell other moms how they could get involved in the same type of programs. This is actually how I became an Instagram Influencer by accident!
Initially, I never had any intention of growing the type of following I did, but after reaching 1,000 Instagram followers in 28 days, I decided I would try making a part-time living from doing more with Instagram.
Six months later, mission accomplished! And in February 2017, I also rebranded my blog and social media accounts, changing my name from West Coast Mama to Nikki Blogs!
West Coast Mama was initially a concept that focused on shopping local and the lifestyle here in BC, but I discovered that the majority of my following was actually more interested in how I do social media.
The name Nikki Blogs came to me as I grew tired of people asking when I would go back to work after the birth of my little girl. I never planned on going back and wanted to make a living working from my home and taking care of my family full-time. Thus, Nikki Blogs! It’s what I do 🙂
Fast forward to January 2018 and another mission accomplished! I’m officially a full-time blogger writing content I love to share and connecting with incredible people from all over the world. It’s a dream come true!
Nikki Blogs is about sharing the tips and tricks I’ve learned in social media, blogging, motherhood, and life: what I’ve seen works and what I’ve noticed doesn’t! I’m a daily Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook user, and I absolutely adore checking out new and trendy blogs related to my niche.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, flipping through home decor catalogs, photography, travel, and shopping local. I feel so honoured that you’ve decided to follow along in my journey and I can’t wait to help you achieve your blogging and social media goals too!
Feel free to send a message on Instagram or email me anytime with content requests or questions 🙂 Nothing brings me greater joy than helping other girl bosses and entrepreneurs get closer to their dreams.
This is our year! Let’s keep crushing those goals!
