I'm Nikki. Welcome to my LJ. This journal is mostly friends-locked... but my posts here aren't all that interesting anyway, so you aren't missing much :-P The only things you might be interested in are the free LJ themes, which are not friends-locked.

One thing I learned during my week in Melbourne… was that a week in Melbourne simply wasn’t enough. I guess I’ll just have to go back sometime.
Bubbling Up, my second Tumblr theme, made it to the Theme Garden not more than a week after I blogged about my newfound love of Tumblr and its bevy of hipster puppies. What do you think? I personally prefer this theme over my first one.
On a totally related note (you’ll see how at the end), I recently went on a business trip to Brunei, where my coworkers and I were lucky enough to stay at the swanky Empire Hotel under a sky this blue:
