Hi! I’m Nicky.
I’m a red lipstick loving former New Yorker, enjoying the good life in the south. Charlotte, North Carolina to be exact. I love blogging and photography, and I’m just here trying to master my corner of the digital space.
HOW THE BLOG STARTED
5 years ago, in 2013, I grabbed a pair of scissors and chopped all of my relaxed hair off. Shortly after, I created NickyGoGlam.com as a platform to help other natural hair women with their hair growth journey and self-confidence. It’s been an amazing ride thus far, and I’ve connected with thousands of naturals across the world. Through blogging and connecting with awesome readers like you, I have had the opportunity to be featured on several platforms like Natural Hair Mag, Natural Hair Daily, Unconditioned Roots, Natural Root Sista’ and more.
Fast forward to 2018- social media supporters, daily subscribers and providing valuable content has enabled this blog to grow exponentially. Because of this, NickyGoGlam.com expanded to include lifestyle content . In addition to having conversations with you about healthy hair, I now get to share my strategies on creating a life that is balanced, and not only looks good but truly feels good to you. Oh, there’s cute clothes too!
WHY I ALMOST QUIT BLOGGING.
My mom lost her battle with cancer on May 20th, 2017. Since then, I’ve fought hard to pick up the pieces. I wanted to quit everything, delete my blog and go hide under a rock for a long, long time. But what good would that do? I’m a mom and wife, and my mom would not want me to quit my life. Before she died, she told me she wanted me to continue to be brave and to do all of the things that bring me joy. I decided to do just that, and also to honor her life with every breath that I take. No deleting my blog and no running away from life. Instead, I’m giving this thing called life and my blog my all.
