The Man Behind Vanilla Extract

vanilla extra man behind the blog

After a short hiatus, The Man Behind the Blog is back today! And I’m so happy to be featuring one of my favorite SF girls (tear!), the lovely Nichole from Vanilla Extract. I met Nichole a few months ago at a photo shoot and have been following her ever since. To be honest, I’m a little sad I didn’t meet her until right at the end of my time in San Francisco, because she’s totally someone I would want to hang out with all the time — very fun, honest, stylish, smart, and knowledgeable about so many different things. Her boyfriend Brian is similar…and just WAIT til you read what he thinks about blogging (warning: you’re going to have boyfriend envy):

    Oh my God- he totally gets it! The food comment is the best ever-that’s how we roll in this house too…maybe it works out that way if your sig. other is a designer.

    You weren’t lying when you said everyone would be jealous! Great attitude, B!

    What a sweetheart! I had the pleasure of meeting Brian and Nicole a few weeks ago at a Blog Brunch, and they are both so genuinely lovely. Love this series.

    Both Nichole and Brian are great. He definitely gets an award for showing up at the Blog Brunch SF with all of us chatty girls. :)

    I feel lucky I’ve met Brian in person, and he definitely wins Man Behind The Blogger Of The Year award. It takes a brave man to show up to Blog Brunch SF with 20 girls and actually join the conversation! Nichole and Brian are so perfect for each other!

    I love reading this series, even though they make me jealous that I don’t have a man in my life who says such wonderful things about me. (other than my dear old dad :) I will have to start reading Vanilla Extract.

    These two are inseparable! I love the work both of them do. Sometimes more Nichole than B, haha. I don’t see any recipes B is creating lol.

    Luckily, I have had the pleasure of working with Brian and I completely agree, this guy is a total badass. Keep on keepin’ it real B!

    I couldn’t be more proud to call this man my partner in crime. Thanks so much for inviting B to do this, Victoria! Your sweet intro made my day. Can’t wait to get together on the East Coast – and hopefully sooner rather than later! xo

    So proud of both Brian and Nichole for their vision and dedication to experience life to the fullest everyday! Of course, I am a little bias, I am Nichole’s mom. Brian,you are the best thing that has ever happened to Nichole. Thank you for your patience and loving her with all your heart.
