I made it! I made it to 25! I think what might be most crazy to me is thinking about how 10 years ago I was 15. I had pink hair and I did theatre in my spare time and I listened to a lot of Fall Out Boy. I had big dreams to be the editor of a magazine and to have my voice heard.

Today, on May 21 2015, I have pink hair, I'm the editor of an international wedding website, I listen to a lot of Taylor Swift (okay, and I still listen to a lot of From Under the Cork Tree if we're being honest), and I run this tiny corner of the Internet where sometimes people come and read what I have to say.

What's even crazier is to think about where I'll be in 10 more years. I can't even imagine where I'll be at 30, much less 35, but I can only hope I'll keep making my 15 year-old-self proud.

Hey 25. You're looking pretty good.


  1. Um, you are the cutest! Your hair is absolutely adorable and I love your outfit! Have the best birthday, pretty girl!

  2. happiest of birthdays, girl!

  3. You are just the best fake laugher. You need to teach a class. Happy birthday lady!!

  4. You and Chelsea make a KILLER boss babes team :)

  5. Seriously; you and Chelsea take the cutest photos! Happy, happy birthday, girl: after 25, it just gets BETTER (in my experience, anyway)! Live it up!

  6. Happy Birthday! Love the smiles in those photos!
    It always makes me so happy to hear that dreams do come true! <3
    Here is to being 25 and rocking the hell out of it!!

  7. Happy Birthday! The hair is fabulous, the outfit is fabulous, the pictures are fabulous, and I hope the day is fabulous!

  8. Happy Birthday young lady! You've accomplished so much at only 25 years old... I can't even imagine what you'll accomplished in the next 10-15 years. Also, I had no idea you were so young! Ha ha! Now I feel old! I think the best is yet to come for you... 30's are an amazing time of self discovery so you have a lot to look forward to! For now, let's celebrate you and the fabulous 25 years you've got under your belt!

  9. Happy [belated] birthday!!! Welcome to the club ;) You've accomplished SO much. :) I can't even imagine what you could do with another 10 years!

    Awesome look! So lovely! Happy Birthday!

  12. Happy Birthday! This couldn't be any more perfectly spring-like. That scarf and that belt!

  13. Happy (belated) birthday!!! 25 is going to be a fantastic year! Love the pink hair!

  14. Happy (very belated) birthday, Nicole! I hope you had a fantastic birthday :) Also, I have to tell you that I adore your pink hair! I've wanted to dye my hair pink or purple for agessss (like, since I was in 7th or 8th grade). I think it would be a very fun summer project (I can't have crazy hair during the school year). I can't wait to see where you'll be in a year from now...or when you're 30! You're going to move mountains, my friend.

  15. I love that you have pink hair. So much. I somehow got through the whole autumn last year without dying my hair bright red again. This year, it's on.
