About Nicole Standley

Armed with the latest issue of Vanity Fair, oversized Tom Ford sunnies, Beats, and boarding pass, you can find me on a perpetual mad dash collecting airline miles and passport stamps one adventure at a time. When I’m not wrangling my husband from baggage claim, or coaxing my pint-sized foodie from the airline’s executive lounge, this self-proclaimed pop culture aficionado is obsessed with Instagram, and not afraid to admit my imaginary besties are Gwyneth Paltrow (Hi goop!) and Drew Barrymore. Whom I still owe the latter a mix tape…long story.

Born + raised in New Jersey, since my very first Malibu Barbie, I knew deep in my soul that California was where I belonged. Calling Orange County home, I love spending my free time time exploring restaurants, going to as many concerts as my calendar allows, serving on the Foundation of my daughter’s school, and having nightly kitchen dance parties while cooking dinner with the loves of my life, Jamie (a.k.a. Hubs) and Coco (a.k.a. JetSet Kiddo.)

This year I will be speaking about travel + lifestyle blogging at Mom 2.0 Summit and ConnectHER about travel blogging and I hope to see you there!
