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 me as a person and how I was doing social media.
The name Nikki Blogs came to me when I began to grow 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 work 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 reach 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 reaching their dreams.
This is our year! Let’s keep crushing those goals!
