Slowly exploring the rest of the world, but for now, China

Come stalk my travel map here.

Nicol is a matcha, fitness, panda and Baymax loving gal who likes to show off her flexy backbends and splits (see her Instagram for example). With a goal of trying to get her front oversplits to 270 degrees, knowing that it is 90% impossible, you can find her in the gym, at home, at the airport, basically anywhere stretching. Originating from the North West of England, she has temporarily moved to Beijing, China in order to not only improve her Mandarin but to step out and try something new living outside of the UK in a what she considers an unfamiliar territory.

Think that’s enough about me in the third person. Having blogged for over 8 years (under the old blog name, yukluistyle, for the first 6.5 years), my blog has taken a twist and turn over those years when it comes to niches but as of 2016 with a new blog name, nicolyl, I have primarily focused on blogging about beauty, travel and health & fitness, as well as documenting my personal experiences that may not relate to any of these categories. I just see what I deem fit and suitable for this blog.

I had created this blog back in 2010 during my first year of uni in order to keep me distracted from my lectures. Bad I know but real talk here. I see blogging as a way of voicing my opinion, sharing my personal experiences with the world and to use it as a diary documenting those unforgettable moments.

You are welcome to join me and my journey.
