Welcome to Blushing Macaron! I am Nikki Helmholdt, the author behind the blog and I am chasing my dreams and starting this blog as a creative outlet. As a new momma who recently went back to work I have a need for a creative outlet and hope to inspire other momma’s too!
Where are you from?
I am from Minneapolis, Minnesota and have lived there almost my entire life. I went to The College at St. Benedicts (CSB), yay Bennies! In June of 2016 my husband, Brad, and I decided to embark on a new adventure and moved to Fort Myers, Florida. We are enjoying the constantly nice weather and not missing the -30º!
I am a recent momma to Beckett, wifey to Brad, and momma to our Vizsla, Remi, who is already 6 somehow?! We recently moved to a new house right before Beckett arrived and we are in the process of renovating it. We cannot wait to update our 1992 kitchen and get it into current times.
What is your style?
I would describe my style as simple and comfortable. Full disclosure I am not a huge fan of heels and LOVE flats because I can walk a long distance and don’t end up with sore feet or blisters. I used to wear heels more but injured my foot playing sand volleyball and it has just never quite recovered where it gets sore fairly quickly in tall heels. Athleisure or a top paired with jeans or shorts is a go-to staple but I do like to jazz it up once in a while and step out of my box. I am budget conscious and mix high and low style pieces to create my looks.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, things you would like to see, or if you would like to work together!
