Our Food Baby - the Blog


How good is food looking right now. You wake up for your morning Instagram scroll and the next thing you want to be doing is making that delicious looking smoothie thats been saturated in that photo filter, making you salivate over your pillow. I want it. So what do I do, go on a food spree taking the most deliscious looking recipes from taste.com, or any foodstagrams and start creating my own little meals.

I think sometime in your life you might come across a really healthy stage and I think thats happening to me right now. After no exercise all last year, I think its time to get back into shape and hit the gym, along with eating healthy food.

The Re-vamp



Welcome to my newly styled blog!
Growing up is a time for change and new experiences. I feel like I've left a chapter in my life and ready to move onto the next. The process of giving my blog a make-over has for me, confirmed this movement I'm in. 

 I'm so excited to explore new things and give my wardrobe and style, a personal update. Back to Basics it is, and then after perhaps add more colour.

Now I've deleted all my old tumblr photos and re-starting with inspiration re-blogs. So go ahead and follow. I haven't got much up yet, but just you wait and see.

Also I'm starting a food blog, yes FOOOOOD. I've been really healthy lately for some reason and feel amazing after a good workout and a healthy feed. Occasionally you'll find me indulging in a classic DoughBoy Margherita Pizza (as I am doing right now). I don't know how far I'll get into my food blog, but I'll at least try.

Getting Intimate with Intimates


New arrivals come hand in hand with a fat smile stamped on your face and while your opening that parcel, theres no doubt butterflies are fluttering your stomach, is it the right size? what does it feel like? I'm sick of impulse buying that thing I'll never wear, so I've decided to re-invent my style with back to basics, and try to purchase online mainly to buy the best of whats out there. First of all I'm starting from underneath, throwing out all my old bras and underwear. Theres nothing better then new intimates. These I bought from Urban outfitters, and check out the florally underwear from Topshop. Now you all know where I buy knickers and bras. 

I've decided to go without underwire, since I like the more flat chested look better. I feel that its just more laid back, comfortable and freeee. 

Keep watching my blog as I hope to reveal more back to basic wear soon.

Love Nikki
P.S hope you like my new white coat hanger. x

The Hunt Down


Getting the most out of your allowance. 
To avoid impulse buying.
Step 1: Do not leave the house for days
Step 2: Get yourself a laptop
Step 3: Keep looking at your account reminding yourself what your really saving up for
Step 4: Have 20 tabs up at a time on each safari window of all different stores
Step 5: When you think you like an item, add it to cart
Step 6: After you've gone through all categories on each site and done this, go through the carts in every store site you've opened and ask yourself, do I really need this? Then remove the less fortunate items.
Step7: Then when your down to two or one items in a few carts, subtract them even more.
Voila! The items left are the items that truly belong in your closet.

I don't usually buy online, but I thought instead of going out and buying anything I see, I would shop online. That way I was seeing a massive range of items, really figuring out what I really want/need, while saving for travelling. It's a long bedridden process, but can be fun, while you use your money to its best. When your package arrives, you might even receive a $30 food freebie voucher!!!
