    Nicole's love for Hoboken was sparked during a summer internship at New York Magazine. While she's not working out or perfecting her brows, Nicole can be found at any place with a great breakfast menu. She is sometimes guilty of liking dogs a little bit more than people, but it's because her own huskies have left a permanent imprint on her heart — though she does have a low key corgi obsession {something about those little legs}. Nicole is also a firm believer that there's nothing a new pair of shoes can't fix. Being a lover of new adventures, Nicole can't wait to travel and see where her '20s lead her.
