Happy Halloween my little ghouls!

It's that time of year again, where I snuggle up on the couch eating candy and watching horror movies so basically it's not much different than the rest of the year but today is HALLOWEEN. Halloween is so fascinating to me, possibly due to the fact here in Australia we don't celebrate it commercially as America does so when browsing in shops if I find cute halloween items I'm always sure to snag them up. I Actually love halloween so much my entire left shin is a halloween themed tattoo candy corn and all. (Can not believe I forgot the candy corn this year).

Here is my lil HAUNT o ween themed illustration which will be for sale in my shop when I open  it back up.

and here is Miss Nikki as a witch!

Hope you all have a candy filled Halloween,
 I'm off to play animal crossings Halloween events!

Pop That Cassette.

POP! That Cassette is a accessory company run by the very talented Alicia. Her products speak volume to her creative sense and honestly I melt just looking through her online store. 

The Goodies!
When I opened the box I was greeted by the loveliest packaging which to me is always such a special touch. I also had a lovely little note which fills me up with warm and gooey feels. One of the first things I noticed was how well made all these super cute items were, all finished off with velvet so your hair or cute clothes won't get caught on the prong clips. No glue running off the edges all very professional but honestly from such a talented lady I did not expect anything less. All her items are made with love and care and designed to perfection. Now on to the goodies I received

The sweater guards. 
I was determined to pair this with a spring outfit because I think these little cuties need to be on display all year round. I really love the pink bow on contrast to the black it makes it pop! I've aways had a thing for these and this is honestly me in a pair so I'm dying to get another set.

The bow clip. 
Is that a lil black cat I see? Ah it is!! I'm in love with this little puff clip. 3 layers of super cute ribbon topped off with a black glitterly kitty. ( My Cat is black so I obviously just squealed with this one.)

The fascinator. 
When I opened the box, this was the first thing I saw, It was love at first sight. I adore the flower and cherry with a glitter glaze. I can envision myself pairing this with the most outrageous outfits but also the most basic to bring it to life. 

You can find Pop that cassette at these lovely locations.

If you own a store and would like Miss Nikki's thoughts and reviews on them
email me at nikki.parker91@gmail more than happy to help working lovelies out.

Lil ole header.

In the sea of social media sometimes it's hard to shine, but recently i've been helping some ladies out by bringing their persona to life via my design and illustration work to show their lovely viewers just whom they are.

The key to sticking out in the sea would be to have something that draws attention and I believe these banners do just that, each quirky and original and with little lovely bits to keep the audience attention how could you go wrong?

Ekka, that time of year again.

In brisbane every year the smell of cotton candy and dagwood dogs comes to town along with the cutest baby animals, rides, show bags and lots and lots of people. The royal Brisbane Show know as the ekka, is held every year in August and is one of my favourite times of year. Ever since I was little I would count down the days until I went to the ekka I would read the showbag guide over and over again. This year I went with my Mumma bear as we always do, every year since I moved to Queensland as little girl. So watch out for some carnival themed illustrations because I'm totally inspired.

Here some of the cool things I got to see, I've started to try to get more use out of my nifty camera.
