about me?!

𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦, 𝘸𝘦𝘭𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘦, 𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘦𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘭𝘤𝘰𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘦𝘦!

my name is Nicole! I’m 25, living in Northern California. I love all things old, earth toned or from anthropologie. I work at an elementary school & I LOVE my job.

I started working towards a low-toxic lifestyle after years & years & years of dealing with the horrors of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome - if you have it too, hugs). My research led me to learn about all the things that disrupt your hormones — and let me tell ya, it’s a scary rabbit hole. But that’s 𝙢𝙮 𝙬𝙝𝙮.

fun facts?
1. I learned to play the harp in high school
2. I have a collection of antique broaches (I don’t ever wear them though!)
3. india is my favorite place in the WORLD, it’s my dream to live and teach there.
4. I’ve been to Singapore & Israel.
5. I’m a enneagram 4.
6. I was born in Montana.
7. I had 6 people in my graduating class.
8. My mom is a teacher.
9. Elephants are my favorite animal.
10. My dream job was always to be an archeologist in Egypt, I have always been obsessed with mummy documentaries.

a letter from us

@oilsetc + @kuyaandbaby

Mikaela & I met in 2013 (also the year this picture was taken, I couldn’t find any of just me & her, because our 3rd roommate is always in them, hi Laura lol) she was the first person I met on campus - she said something to me about the movie “Cujo” .. I kinda just laughed because I hadn’t seen that movie.

We weren’t roommates.. yet.

After a TON of confusion, I ended moving to a room with a girl who didn’t like me. Mikaela had a roommate that was stealing from her so Mikaela was given the order to move, and guess where she was put? Room 8. I walked in from class about a month into school, and there she was. In her polka dot dress moving all her stuff into my room & my original roommate moving her stuff out. I said “ummmm....what’s going on?” & from then.. to now, Mikaela has been explaining to me “what is going on” in every scenario of life.

Now, 7 years later - she’s a wife & a mom to 2 of the most beautiful boys in the world, I was a bridesmaid in her midwestern wedding & she does my taxes for me.

anyways, I talk too much so I asked her to give me something from her to say about our “why” of doing these pouches -

Nicole and I never agree on much. We are two very different people, but somehow God saw fit to force my stubborn self to be her roommate and it just worked. She has been one of my best friends and truly the most supportive (it’s just who she is).

Anyway, the one thing we have always agreed on was our favorite day, Earth Day. She had shown me pouches before for her oils and tbh I didn’t know that was even a thing (she’s my teacher/cult leader for all things oils), but I was like “I can make this”. So, when she told me her idea for recycled pouches I thought it was the best thing, but I didn’t have the time.

Then I got pregnant and knew I wanted to stay home, but I knew I couldn’t just not work, then I remembered Nicole’s idea.

I am so excited to be doing this with my friend but even more that it’s part of the reason I get to stay home and watch my babies grow. When I say dream come true, I really mean it.
