Glossy Blonde is all about sugar, lip gloss and micro-brews
We love a girl with a bit of sass, a lot of style, and a love for lip gloss. Niki Caron of Glossy Blonde has everything we are looking for in a blogger: cute outfits, great recipes, beauty secrets, and a personality that makes us swoon. Meet Niki …
Where I’m based: Boston
How long I’ve been blogging: One year
Blog/business basics: Glossy Blonde is a lifestyle blog with a focus on beauty, style and sweets. Oftentimes with — just a little — sass.
Guilty pleasure: Anything with sugar added to it. I would probably eat a twig if it was baked with sugar. Not really, but I seriously love sugar.
Last thing I bought: A huge beauty haul from Sephora including makeup and hair care products from Dior, YSL and Alterna Bamboo. I literally spent two and a half hours in there, and I could have been there even longer.
What trends are you trying this summer? White heels, a lot of mixed prints, summer leather and, of course, stripes.
What recipe are you dying to try on your pinboard? I love to bake, so I am pretty much dying to try every single one! But if I had to narrow it down to just a few… Homemade Creamsicles, Snickers Brownie Bites, and Sparkling Champagne Cupcakes.
What is your favorite beauty product right now? If I had to pick a favorite it would be Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. It’s the absolute best multi-use, conditioning, healing, protecting and glossing agent I’ve ever used. I have one at my desk, on my nightstand and in my car.
What is your go-to lip gloss? That’s a toughie. My blog is named Glossy Blonde particularly for my love of lip gloss. But I’d have to say, my favorite is currently Dior Addict Gloss in Spring Ball – it’s this gorgeous champagne-peach shimmer that looks great alone or over lipstick. The formula is super-smooth and it lasts for hours.
So you’re a craft beer enthusiast, what is a brew that you can’t live without? One of my all-time favorite beers is Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale. There’s a touch of bourbon flavor to it, along with oak and some vanilla — the beer is aged in bourbon barrels — so it’s a bit complex, a little sweet, super smooth and incredibly delicious.
