Welcome to my world!

Hello! I’m Nicola, happily married to an amazing man I’m proud to have as my husband and an equally proud Mum to Kayden, my son who I adore to the moon and back. He has his own Instagram profile, which you can check out here: The K Den

After being in HR/Learning and Development for over 20 years of my life, I moved to Sales in 2019 – in the Tourism/Hospitality industry. It was an incidental career change where I learned so much and also excelled! Then lockdown happened and this industry was hit the worst. As a result, in November 2020, the lockdown situation forced me to leave work and setup my own company – I’ve put together a few things that I am very passionate about and have already gained some clients!

I don’t see myself as INFLUENCER, in social media terms.  You’re probably wondering why I am here then, aren’t you? Well, just to give you some background, when I initially decided to blog, I was at a very low point in my life where I experienced lots of heartache, which served as my inspiration. Blogging was my outlet and coping mechanism. It made me feel better to talk about the pain, in the hope that it will inspire others who had been through similar – and it did!

However, lot’s changed in my life since then and blogging took a back seat.  I’m now more intentional about it. I still want to be an inspiration to others. As I aspire to inspire others, I see myself as an INSPIRER.

Quite honestly, I was also put off blogging for a while when I noticed how many bloggers would just post anything and everything, just because they got it for free – losing authenticity. But then I reminded myself, “hey! that’s not your business Nicola, remember why you started blogging and do just that!”  So here I am, #keepingitreal with my blog posts that will sometimes be crazy, weird and long, but what I can assure you, is that it will always be true. One day when I am no longer around and Kayden reads my blog, he will have an accurate impression of who I am…or was…not what social media standards depict or the number of likes etc. I even embarked on a social media cleanse where I removed hundreds of followers, especially on my Instagram account!

I’m selective about what I choose to post about, call me fussy – I have an opinion and personal preferences and I am not shy to share my views, which are always candid.

I am PR friendly, so for PR Requests/Collaborations/Journo Requests, please do contact me, for more info, check out:

I do hope that you will enjoy my efforts. I look forward to engaging with you on my blog and on social media.
