About Me

Hello! My name is Niki and I am a 32 year old blogger and product reviewer. I live in beautiful Colorado and I love sharing my experiences with products with my friends and readers. I have a B.S. in environmental science from UNCA. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, taking my dog on adventures, photography, reading, craft beer, going to concerts, sports, making music, and art. I have no specialty as far as the products that I review and enjoy items from all categories.
