I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

Hair By Leigha | Featured Vendor

The first time I got to meet this lovely lady was at my second wedding ever. I walked into the bridal suite and she was working away on the bride’s beautiful hair. Since then we have gotten to work together on a few other weddings (here is one), as well as styled shoots that we’ve created together (here, here, here, hereand here :) ). I absolutely love working with Leigha and recommend her to all of my lovely brides. :)

Lately I’ve been feeling like I needed a new look – I am now a brunette!! I know, crazy!! And so today I got to visit Leigha; I took photos of her adorable salon and her lovely self, and changed my entire identity. Quite an eventful day. :)

Enjoy the photos from today – and if you’re in the need for some therapy (amazing hair shampooing and long chats) check out Leigha at Salon LeiLa located in Sola Salon in Blaine, MN (her Facebook page is here – give her some love, friends!!). She is just wonderful and truly does an amazing job. I’ll be posting a new self-portait soon so you can see for yourself. :)
