Happy Blogthday!

Happy 2nd birthday, Nikki’s Notebook!

On one hand, two years seems like no time at all – especially as I’ve been blogging for about a decade. On the other hand, when I looked back over the last 48 months and realised how many changes I’d been through (and posts I’d written), it felt like a lifetime.

So, I thought I’d share some of my favourite posts from the archives. Enjoy!

The One Where I Tried Tinder

I think this is one of the most popular posts I’ve written on here. It’s definitely the one people mention when they see me around! It was a nerve-wracking moment when I hit the publish button – I knew it’d either go down a storm or fall flat on it’s face. Thankfully it was the former, eh? If you haven’t read it before, prepare for some epic cringiness.

The One With The Halloween Costumes

Sometimes you need Halloween inspo – and you need it fast! Two years ago, I donned five different Halloween costumes (each of which took next to no time to create) and started snapping. I uploaded a new costume each day and, voila, my Halloweek was born. I was surprised to see this still floating around my top posts – so, you might be excited to hear there’s a new costume tutorial coming next week…

The One With the Long Distance Friendship

Nearly all of my blog posts are inspired by things that actually happen to me (no sponsored content here) and this was no exception. After several of my friends started to experience the shock of a best friend moving abroad, I realised I’d gathered quite a few long distance friendship tips since Queenie moved to Hong Kong in 2012. If it’s provided comfort or inspiration to anyone, I’ll be very happy.

The One Without the Alcohol

I’ve always felt a bit of an oddball for being teetotal, so I decided to write about it. It’s something I’m questioned about a lot – from taxi drivers, to relatives, to randos at the bar. But I do remember getting some really nice feedback from you guys, so thank you <3

The One In the Beginning

And finally, my first ever post! It’s really weird looking back over this one, as it seems to capture all the likes, dislikes, goals and thoughts of my 23 year old self. So much has changed since then, but I think most of the 25 things are still true! I’ve also been marvelling at how much I’ve changed my hair in the last couple of years. Maybe that’s a post for another time.

Whether you’ve been reading since October 2014 or you’re brand new to my blog, thank you so much for stopping by. It means an awful lot to me.
