cold, smooth & tasty.


Hi all!

I’m Nikki. I’m a 39-year-old Minnesota native. I currently live in the Twin Cities burbs, work in upper management in social services, and am on a constant mission to be healthy, happy, and live my best life.

A few things about me…

∙I love to inspire others and be inspired myself.  ∙
∙Tattoos, glitter, coffee, books, crystals, and good music are a few of my favorite things. ∙
∙ I never believed it when people told me my 30s would be so. much. better. than my 20s. Surprisingly, they were all right. ∙
∙I firmly believe that belly laughs work better than medicine sometimes. ∙

In May 2022 I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. This turned my world upside down and altered every aspect of my life. It also shifted the focus of this blog from lifestyle and other randomness to chronicling my journey through treatment and into life as a survivor.


I’m a cat mom who loves her morning coffee and a good audiobook or podcast on the drive in to work. I’m a Pagan, but accepting of others’ beliefs and willing to engage in respectful discourse surrounding them. I’m a Capricorn Sun/Cancer Moon/Pisces Rising with a wild imagination and motivation to slay my goals and change the world. When I fall in love with something or someone, I fall hard and submerge myself fully. I love tattoos, glitter, gardening, books, writing, traveling, crystals, and everything about Minnesota. My friends and family are my life and I wouldn’t change a thing about the path that brought me to where I am today.
