SEPTEMBER BLOGGER OF THE MONTH: Nicole of Lipstick & Brunch

"Luck Favors The Bold." (My fave quote that I live by! )
I was born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras as the oldest of 4 siblings and I've been living in Houston since 2009. I'm passionate about skincare and make-up (especially bright lipstick!), living an extraordinary life despite of having Diabetes Type 1 since the age of 5, I'm all about bold (and frugal) colorful statements in my fashion choices and I love exploring the best experiences around Houston and during my travels with my hubby. I write a monthly beauty spread for a glossy women's print publication back in Honduras called (keeps my Spanish writing skills sharp!I also work currently as a studio manger for an advertising/lifestyle photography studio.

What is your blog about and what are your goals for your blog?
My blog is about all the things I am passionate about: beauty, fashion, lifestyle, and covering celebrity sightings and events in Houston. I used to only focus on my photography career but now I incorporate my photo knowledge to capture the best pictures during my travels, at events or of my favorite beauty products. I recently started consistently doing videos for my YouTube channel because I love talking about beauty and unboxing all my beauty deliveries so check me out there too!

My goal is to make it my full time (PAID!) career. I love content creating for brands that resonate with my blog because I feel like an official freelance writer/photographer which is what I always dreamed of doing since I was little (of course, before I dreamt of Glamour mag or Cosmo but then again, I never imagined having my own blog!)

What's your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite thing about being a blogger is I can combine all the things I'm passionate about in my curated site. Before I thought I could only focus on one thing in my career like photography. Having my blog, I don' t have to choose photography, event coverage, beauty or fashion; I can fuse everything I'm passionate about to create my sparkly corner in the internet universe: Lipstick and Brunch! I love blogging because each and every person can be an influencer in their niche if they set their heart and soul on it.

Why did you choose to join Houston Fashion Bloggers?

I chose to join because I was just starting my blog in Houston and I wanted to meet Houston bloggers and attend events relevant to my blog content. Since then I've made so many friends and attended a variety of beauty and fashion events! Last year I own Best Beauty Blog 2014 in the Houston Fashion Blogger Awards and that meant so much to me and set my standards even higher, so thank you!
