The pulse is such a "out-of-the-box" gift to give this holiday season. This innovative product allows you to easily play music throughout your home minus the fuss of big speakers. The Pulse is a LED wireless speaker and light bulb. By simply installing the pulse into your light fixture you can play your music throughout your home beautifully. See my test run of this product in the video below.
I have really become a fan of Adoreme.com! They have the most beautiful line of sleepwear. Recently they sent me a few of their pieces to try out. I have to admit, I had never heard of this company before, but I am sure glad that they made it my way! Their pj's are so comfy (this is one picky gal when it comes to sleepwear). In the video below I try on the pieces they sent me and give you a overview of their products. What a wonderful holiday gift this would be!
The Corkcicle is just one of those must give gifts this holiday season. If you want to give that gift that can be not only useful year round, but extremely unique then stock up on these babies! I had so much fun using this product. Corkcicle was so kind that they sent me their Corkcicle One to try out. The also are sponsoring a give-a-way for one of my subscribers to win a Corkcicle Air. You have to watch the video to enter the give-a-way! Hope you will enjoy.

Many of you already know that I am a huge fan of Etsy shop Coquesia Belle's white crochet dish cloths. They are simply divine!!! I was so excited when I received a set of them in the mail recently from Coquesia Belle recently. You cannot go wrong with giving these as gifts, not only for Christmas, but anytime of year. These are a must have in every home. In the video below I show you these fabulous gems.

It's Christmas Time! I am so happy for the season. Today just kicked off my first holiday video of the season. I love being able to share all of my tips and ideas for the holidays with all of you. Although I love putting out all of my decorations and spending days tweaking it to get it just right, not everyone enjoys doing the same. Some people are very minimalistic and truly enjoy a more streamline and simple decor around the holidays. I can appreciate this and for that reason I created this video sharing some tips to keep it simple around the holidays. I hope you will find my tips helpful and I hope that your holiday season has gotten off to a great start.
I owe Keri of the YouTube channel VeriKeri a huge thanks for waking me up on this great find at the Dollar Tree. The dollar tree sells the individual serving Martinellis sparkling cider. Perfect for your holiday bar. You definitely want to check out her channel for great information on home entertaining, shopping hauls, decor and more.
I just love this lighted tree that I received from the company E2E. They have a beautiful selection of lighted trees which make a simply and elegant solution for your holiday decor. They are so kind that they are also giving all of my readers/viewers a 10% discount on their orders. The discount code is: VR89MHYJ. You can view their product line on Amazon at: http://bit.ly/light-share

Thanksgiving is next week! I just cannot believe how fast this year has gone by. Christmas is next and I am so excited! This week I completed my Thanksgiving tablescape. I usually do not host Thanksgiving at my home. We typically go to my brother's house on this holiday. They recently purchased a beautiful home and need time to get settled in. So for that reason I agreed to host Thanksgiving at our home this year and they will host Christmas.
My Thanksgiving tablescape comes with a little twist this year. Cherie from the YouTube channel LiveLoveLatte reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in collaborating with her and eleven other ladies on YouTube. The collaboration would consist of each lady putting together her holiday table in video form (Thanksgiving or Christmas). There was a little twist. We each had to use one clearance item that we purchased from either TJ Maxx, Home Goods or Marshall's. In the video below I take you on my journey of putting together my Thanksgiving tablescape. In the video you will also find a list of the other ladies participating in this collaboration in the description box. Be sure to check out their videos also. Enjoy!

I love having the opportunity to help others with their issues around their home. This week I was able to help Belinda from California with tips on how to makeover her bedroom. She has been struggling with decorating and organizing her new home. She wrote me and asked for my suggestions for her bedroom. In the video below I share with Belinda my thoughts and tips on how I think she should address this space. I hope many of you can also find my tips helpful. Enjoy!
There is nothing like a quick and easy home decor idea. I love to do many DIY projects, but one thing I have not mastered is the art of sewing. Each time I see a project that requires sewing, I run! I wanted to do this irresistible project to warm up a space in my home for the fall/winter season. Unfortunately all my research led me to believe I would need to pull out the needle and thread. No Way! So I came up with my own no-sew alternative. I hope you will enjoy!
Shoe-free home here! Many of you know that we do not wear shoes in my home. A few months back I did a video sharing why I do not wear shoes in my home along with tips on addressing issues around having a shoe-free home. Many times it can be difficult asking people to remove their shoes before entering your home. I tackled these issues and shared them in the video below. In that same video "Having A No Shoe Home Rule" I mentioned that I have a shoe cabinet for guest. Many viewers asked that I share that cabinet. Well today I upgraded to a better cabinet and I share that with you in the video below called "Guest Shoe Cabinet Organization & Tour" I hope you will enjoy both videos. Have a great weekend!
I found the perfect liner for my shoe cabinet drawers at the dollar tree. I love this design due to it coordinates perfectly with the curtains that are in my dining room where my shoe cabinet is located. The perfect match for only $1.00!
It is "What Would Nikki Do?" time! This week I helped Gabriella from Maryland with her mudroom issue. She is a wife and mother of five. She is struggling with how to get order in her mudroom on a budget. She wrote to me asking my advice on what I would do. In the video below, I share with you my mudroom organization tips. I hope everyone finds my tips useful. Have a great rest of your weekend.

It is that time again! The time where I try out some new home tips that I have found online and from word of mouth. You all know how much I love trying out these tips. See the video below to see how my trials turned out. You will be surprised at what works and doesn't work. I hope you all enjoy and will find it helpful. Have a great day!
Last weekend I went to visit my parents. We had such a great time. We went to a couple local festivals and had a blast. I had my fair share of fair food also. While there I was able to do a lot of shopping! Not your traditional shopping, but I went shopping at my mother's house. My mom loves all things for the home. When she see's something she loves she gets it. Well, she took me through her home and gave me so many beautiful things. I share some of them with you in the video below. I hope you will enjoy!
I can't believe how fast the month of September went by! We are deep into the fall season now and I love it! Well I am a little late sharing what I loved around my home for the month of September. Better late than never I say. I hope you enjoy my sharing what I have been loving. Enjoy!
