Hi! I’m Nicole and my blog, Treasure Tromp, is all about documenting the treasures of life, one adventure at a time. I'm a California girl through and through: originally from Sonoma, the heart of wine country and then made the move south to Orange and Los Angeles counties in 2005. Forever a student, I’m currently working on my PhD in Psychology. I got bit by the travel bug a few years ago and can't seem to put my passport down. In addition to travel, I write about organization advice, blogging tips, and the art of treating yourself.
In June of 2013 I moved to South Africa. Cape Town was my home through the new year before I returned back to California in January.
♥ I love a good adventure … and meticulously planning a good adventure ♥ Sometime after college I fell in love with hiking and camping. That probably had a lot to do with falling in love with a certain guy. ♥ I'm engaged to the most amazing man. How I convinced him to fall in love with me is still a mystery. Planning a wedding from the other side of the world is a fun little adventure. ♥ Have you seen the cuteness that is the hedgehog? I have seen the light and there is no going back! ♥ I
was always will be a sorority girl (Alpha Gamma Delta love). For the record, we don't 'buy our friends'. Promise. ♥ My ideal day includes sitting in my hammock with a glass of wine, good book and listening to Bon Iver ♥ That being said, I strongly believe that Britney Spears is a musical genius. Genius. ♥ I like to pretend that I know how to cook and be crafty. I can't and I'm not. ♥ Words of wisdom: Never pass up an opportunity for sushi, oysters, microbrew or good wine. Care to join me? Grab a glass of wine, relax & let’s be friends. If you're new around here I suggest starting with some of my favorite posts or the facts of me.
