I’m Nicole.

Because Nicole

Because Nicole, I suppose, is a lifestyle blog (AKA a bit of everything).

I’m 30ish and live in Southampton with Adam (AJ) and our dogs Archimedes (Archie) and Fox. Archie is a pug x dachshund. He’s named after the character from the Sword in the Stone and spends his days reclining on the sofa and hoovering the kitchen floor. He has his very own post right here. Fox is a former Romanian public shelter dog who came into our lives in the Summer of 2017. You can read more about her here.

At work, I’m training to be a Chartered Legal Executive (Lawyer) and spend my days balancing working, studying, blogging, renovating our house and pottering round.

I love eating, adventuring, crochet, playing netball, photographing (mostly my dogs, sorry), learning new things and finding ways to battle with Rosacea.

In 2018, I tried Veganuary for the first time and I didn’t look back! That means I’m now constantly on the hunt for excellent vegan snacks and baking recipes!


Sometimes, I include sponsored links or content in my posts – but I mark all of these posts with a * for transparency. I only include content that I feel is relevant to my blog and I don’t post content that wasn’t written by me.
