Welcome! My name is Nicole Verduzco-Villanueva (long name, I know) and I’m a Cali girl born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from Cal State East Bay with a major in Communications and a minor in Psychology. I’m currently a Partner/ Director of Operations at SpeedPro East Bay a small, locally owned business. I started with them as the Marketing Manager right out of college when they were first opening their doors and I’ve been with them ever since. I run everything from their social media and website to designing marketing collateral and campaigns.
I truly enjoy writing and so I decided to start this blog for a few reasons. For one, I love fashion. You could probably say my shopping habits are just shy of an addiction but I love it. It’s always been a way to express myself and it really is true that when you look good you feel good. Since I was little I would always watch shows that were fashion-related or would find joy in organizing my closet. In addition, I’ll share my favorite cocktail recipes, my travels whether near or far and my book club books for you avid readers out there. I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
Why Whiskey in a Teacup?
Whiskey in a tea cup perfectly defines me as a Woman. Reese Witherspoon said it best…delicate on the outside, strong and fiery on the inside. I like to think of it also as classy on the outside and a little bit rugged on the inside. I even have a necklace that was gifted to me with this quote and I find myself wearing it on days that I especially need a little extra empowerment.
