Welcome to Blooming Boldly!

My name is Nina, and I'm so glad you're here! I'm trying to live the most full and fun life possible, and I'd love to help you do the same.

I believe the best life is one that's full of passion, personality, and progress. Passion means doing what you love and filling your days with things that bring you joy! You add personality to your life by focusing on what makes you the awesome and uniquely gifted person you are, and not worrying about if it's "cool" enough for anyone else. And progress comes through wrestling with the hard stuff and doing the work required to be a better person.

When these three areas are growing and moving, your life will be BLOOMING with vibrancy, contentment, and boldness! Isn't that something everyone wants?!

This blog is where I share my life. I'll let you in on things I'm learning and ways I'm trying to improve my days. You can expect to see lots of things I love - DIY projects and interior design, beauty and fashion, and definitely delicious food! Plus, as a self-proclaimed cheapskate, I'll help you keep it all as budget-friendly as possible!

I used to feel like these hobbies and interests were too shallow to really make a difference in my own well-being, and they definitely weren't important enough to influence anyone else's life for the better. But I've come to see there's so much value in doing things that make you happy and filling your home with things you love! There's confidence that comes with feeling good about yourself and dressing in a way that really reflects your own unique style!

So, if you need some inspiration on updating your wardrobe without breaking the bank,  if you're looking for ways to spice up your living space and really make it "you", if you need a fun cocktail recipe for a party you're hosting this weekend, or if you love learning from someone else's trial and error, well, pull up a chair. You're in good company and I'm happy to help.

Together, let's live the most vibrant and colorful lives possible, and start Blooming Boldly!

More About Nina

I was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky, and still live here with my husband, Logan. We just got married in November of 2016 and think married life is the best! During the day, I work for a foster care agency, finding homes for kids and teens who need somewhere safe to stay. When I'm not working, you're most likely to find me napping or netflixing! I love Jesus, I have a serious weakness for ice cream, and I may have an issue with hoarding craft supplies. Few things makes me happier than a bold geometric pattern, finding a bargain, a good craft project, or throwing a party for friends! I can't wait to get to know you too!
