Lives In: Toronto, CA.
About Me: I am a funny (I think) and relatable (I hope) unlikely-mom-blogger/fashion enthusiast, whose life seemed to fall into place after the birth of my son, Beau. A classically trained writer, for years I used my specialist degree in English Literature from the University of Toronto almost never; instead I chose to pursue my love of fashion, eventually finding a lovely niche in client-based wardrobing and styling at a luxury boutique.
My world shifted when I became a mama and inspiration began to flow. I am now overcome with a desire to start and engage in meaningful conversations about the strange, beautiful, and always humbling world of motherhood; I am insanely grateful that my blog, www.oohnikita.com, provides me with a space to do just that.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: Writing is my home. Curating engaging social media and blog content is my modern talent. No matter what I do, fashion is always hanging out in the background, influencing all my major life decisions.
Interested In: I’m interested in collaborating with like-minded mamas - guest blogging, freelance writing, creative consulting, product partnerships - I’m all ears!
Mama Likes: I am obsessed with interior design blogs. I also love eating, travelling, laughing, breathing (“yoga breathing” is my favourite), taking photos, and collecting images of effortless style. Oh, and my baby; he’s the best.
