My name is Lindsay

and I'm from Buffalo, New York, also known as the Nickel City. My love for this city runs deep.  Like, really deep into the depths of my soul.

Every day I'm inspired by the people who live, work, love, play and thrive in this incredible place that we call home.  I am honored to showcase many of these people in my Nickel City Gritty series, as well introduce you to Buffalo's thriving art scene in my ongoing Buffalo Public Art project. 

I am the founder of the Buffalo Blogging Network. We are a group of bloggers living in the Buffalo, NY area and are passionate about showcasing life in Western New York.  We blog about many topics from fashion to food and everything in between.  We love to write about and take photos of our beautiful city and explore its rich heritage and history.

I have my Makeup Artistry license from the School of Professional Makeup in Toronto, so on top of being a blogger and social media maven, I am also a freelance makeup artist. I am available for hire for weddings, photo shoots, or fashion shows. 

Please contact me with any questions, post ideas, or if you would like to work with me or the Buffalo Blogging Network.
