"A Beautiful Disaster" is a multimedia brand for women of all ages and stages. I wanted to create something fun and spunky that every fashionista or sweat pants wearing mama, single women, craft lovers and foodies alike could relate to. Between myself and the contributors, we cover many perspectives and walks of life. If there's anything you would like to see on ABD Blog as we grow, please feel free to drop us a line in the contact section! Thanks for visiting.
Hello there, I'm Shanika, (clearly!) but I prefer to be called "Nika." I'm asuper-mom (a girl can dream), daughter, big sister, youtube beauty reviewer, writer, and a wear about a dozen other hats in revolving order
I live my life running in heels (I'm not kidding, I can do a mad dash like nobody's business in pumps, ask my kids!) I'm a lot of class with a dose of sass; I adore Sinatra but also love Jay-Z, and find just as much literary satisfaction in Vogue as I do in Hemingway or a Shakespeare sonnet. I'm a walking, breathing contradiction headed in every direction but straight and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I've been writing since I was 6, but found out during my freshman year of college what journalists and writers make on average and ran straight for the hills to law school. Despite the detour, I found my way back to writing when the truth of life became stranger, and funnier, than fiction. Life got crazy, real crazy, and I thought I'd stop writing; now I write about this life of mine and it's many lessons. I am not your average "seemingly-perfect" blogger, but I'm a heck of a lot of fun and I think through it all, life is pretty beautiful if you let it be. Join me for a few life lessons and many more laughs as I write my way through the beautiful disaster that is my reality.
