The Perfect Black Ankle Boots

The Perfect Black Ankle Boots

My name is Nikki and I’m a shoe-addict. I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but lately I’ve been on a shoe-buying spree and added three new pairs to my wardrobe in just a few weeks. That’s more shoes than I bought in the whole year 2015. Shoes are not my thing (Well, were not my thing) and I’ve always been pretty much a basic bitch when it comes to footwear: a few pairs that go with everything. My silver brogues were a first step away from my basic …

Jeans + Blazer

Jeans + Blazer

Howdy mates! K has been playing Irish shanty’s all morning so please excuse me if I write like a pirate today. I should not have dug up Assassin’s Creed during our Spring clean this weekend. After living together for little over half a year, we decided to go through every drawer and every closet to see which items we haven’t used in all this time. We collected a lot of random bits to donate to our local second hand store. The one space I love to tidy up the most is my closet. I …

The Silver Lining

The Silver Lining

I believe it was the year 2000. I was eight. Or about to turn eight. ‘Freestyler’ from the Bombfunk MC’s was my favorite song, I knew the first 151 Pokémons by heart and platform shoes were the bomb diggity. I remember that I had a pair. They were baby blue, buffalo-style and horrible, but I loved them. I went to high school in 2004 and quickly learned that platforms had become an absolute no-go when someone a few years older pointed at my shoes and laughed. A stupid and meaningless moment as I’m sure that …

My 6 favorite sneakers of the moment

My 6 favorite sneakers of the moment

It seems like I have a new annual thing going on. Around this time last year I injured my knee while running and this year I’m wobbling through life again with an injured knee and hip. If I continue on this way, I don’t want to know what state I’ll be in in ten years haha. The upside of the pain though is that it means I have a solid reason to buy an extra pair of sneakers. I’m not the sneaker type, we all know that, but since they are comfortable …

Shopping and eating in Barcelona

Shopping and eating in Barcelona

Oh Barcelona! To celebrate his 25th birthday K flew me over to Barcelona (as his gift for my own upcoming birthday) where he was staying for a job training. He put me in charge of making the travel plan as we’d only have 24 hours of free time together (and I had 8 extra hours on my own). With a little help from my friends I made said travel plan, which ultimately became a shortlist of places I wanted to get food from. We threw in the Sagrada Família and Parc Güell at the end of …

Thrills & frills

Thrills & frills

I am a little lost for words today, which is a shame, because I absolutely love the photos my friend K made of me last week and they deserve a good post. K helped me out with my shoot for SKM and was up for a second round with my actual outfit of that day afterwards. Not very obvious, considering it was nearly freezing and very windy outside. As a thank you, I treated her to hot chocolate at Broer Bretel to warm up and got myself a much needed coffee. Team Ginger Diaries for the win! Ah, life …
