Who Is Nicole?
That’s a good question. A question I never thought of answering for a blog section.
Here it goes. I’m Nicole, a determined woman from a big city chasing big dreams to be successful and support my family. My official job title is “Mommy” and I report to a very demanding and super cute 2 year old boss named CJ.
Despite the fact that he’s extremely adorable and loving, he keeps me on my toes. I must say, the job of being a full-time mommy is rewarding but it’s not easy! Besides trying to keep my tiny human alive, my passion really is to inspire others while sharing experiences and knowledge about the things that I love.
Once I had my son, I realized my purpose in life was so much bigger than what I previously had imagined. Life wasn’t just about me anymore, I had to do something different and manifest the life I desired for my family.
I’ve worked in luxury retail doing sales for brands I grew up dreaming about. At the time, it was the job of my dreams. I’m not going to lie though, it was tough. I had to spend so much time away from home in order to make a living.
You may recognize some of the high profile fashion brands I’ve worked for such as Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Longchamp, and Dolce&Gabbana etc. I’m here to tell you, working in luxury is not as luxury as it sounds. Retail is truly not one for the weak-spirited. If you know, you know.
My experiences in retail were gold, they helped me learn and appreciate so much about life, people, and myself. And I would love to share those lessons with you all too.
The biggest lesson that I’ve learned in those 7 years was appreciate more than anything though, is time.
Being able to stay quarantined with my baby and not having to spend 9 hours a day away at work and missing out on every new word, phrase or mannerism is truly worth every second. Once I got laid off due to Covid-19, I started to really deep dive into ways I can make an income staying home so I’d never have to give this up again.
That’s when I realized that sharing experiences and learning from others is what the internet is all about, right? What better way to get involved in sharing and benefiting off being home with CJ + being on my phone/laptop all day than blogging!
I love connecting with new people from all over the world, which was truly my favorite part of working in retail also. Now I can do that from home, and by doing something that myself and so many others truly enjoy! I dream of being a girl boss of my own empire one day, but all those big goals start with small dreams. Just like that, that’s how From Nicole With Love was born.
Maybe someone somewhere has found themselves in the abyss of the internet super bored and stumbled upon my blog and decided to ask themselves.. “ Who’s Nicole?” Well my friend, I am your new favorite blogger to waste time with & get inspired. 🌸
