About Me

Hi, I’m Nicole or otherwise know as Tall and Caffeinated; a mom, wife, blogger, social media influencer and battler of clinical depression.

Let me introduce myself… I’m 6’1″ and 42 years young. I currently live in Germany with my husband, 3 kids and 2 dogs. I’m a busy stay at home mom. I love to discover new places, shop, my dogs and trying to live a greener lifestyle.

My kiddos are older, 15, 13 and 12 and my days are spent coordinating schedules, tackling laundry, chauffeuring them around to friends and activities, cleaning up after the daily tornado whips through the house, grocery shopping and making meals for my small army of giants 😉

Any chance we get we spend it TRAVELING, exploring and discovering new places.

As a mom, and someone who has battled mental health issues for the past 15 years. I have always put my family first. All the energy I could muster up was poured into their happiness. I FINALLY feel great! My kids are older and I am ready to chase the experiences that I have only dreamed of all these years!

So, at 41 I decided to open an Instagram account and start my Travel and Fashion Blog. I knew nothing about either of these things. The only thing I knew is that I love to help and share things that I am passionate about.

But then, 3 months after I started Corona hit, talk about bad timing. Yes, I was blessed with all this “free time”, but, I’m a mom, so the majority of it was spent trying to help my kids adjust to the “new normal” of staying at home. No school, no sports, no hanging out with friends. I think we completed five 1000 piece puzzles in 3 months!

Fast-forward 1 year and I’m still chugging away, learning from my successes and from my mistakes, but enjoying every second of it! So, I’m proof that you are never to old to chase your dreams. If there is something that you’ve always wanted to do, just do it!

Thank you so much for being here.

XOXO
