from the editor
My Brand: full-time mom, full-time Communications Rock Star.
I’m Editor-In-Chief, Brand & Communications Catalyst and master at Planning beautiful events. I spend my days creating content about fashion and makeup, lifestyle, weddings, and insta-worthy photos for like-minded women -- to make their life more fun. I grew up in Jamaica, West Indies, moved to NYC, and wanted to work in fashion. While in college, I freelanced as a makeup artist, personal stylist and event planner. I graduated with a degree in Fashion Marketing, and then gained a certification as a Professional Bridal Consultant. After years of working in fashion and entertainment, I figured out how to turn my passions into a profit. Today I’m a mom of two daughters, the Founder and Creative Director at Nicole Williams Collective, LLC, and is currently working on a degree in Communications with a focus in Visual & Media Studies. I'm also a contributor at The Huffington Post, a co-host of the Open Conversations podcast, is a BlogHer Social Media Influencer, and a SheKnows Expert Among Us.
When I started Nicole’s Lifestyle Lounge back in 2012, my goal was simple: share my work to help me grow my style business. While pregnant with my second daughter, I learned how to build a blog as a brand. Since that time, it has been a remarkably journey - and the best part, is that it allows me to do what I love.
Some of the brands I've worked with includes:
Learning how to build a brand and a blog gave Nicole the tools to reinvent her life while she was confined to her hospital bed during a high risk pregnancy. Through her business, she helps women who are looking for a makeover for their own life, career, or business. Most of all, Nicole enjoys the freedom to be a stay at home mom for her daughters while building a successful lifestyle brand. - Female Entrepreneur Association
