Hello! I’m Nikki.

 I’m 28 years old, living in Washington, DC. I started this blog in May 2009 to share stories from my kitchen and colorful inspiration…we’ve come a long way together since then.

I’m a digital marketer, event designer, creative director, customer experience fanatic aka the Director of Brand & Marketing at Cava Grill, where I get to build an inspiring brand with incredible food and amazing people.

On Sundays (and many other days) I make pasta for dinner. Hanson is still my favorite band. I can’t wait to go back to Paris again. Chocolate cake is the answer to everything. I once cooked breakfast with Joey Fatone – basically the best day of my NSYNC-obsessed life. I Raise High to GW. Eating out at new and beloved DC restaurants with my friends is my favorite hobby. Also tap dancing. My family is my everything. I coordinate weddings (you know in all that free time I have).  My favorite color? Is sparkle a color? I actually do eat cupcakes for breakfast. They’re better than cereal.

Thank you for sharing some of life’s sweet moments with me.
