My First Blog Post


Welcome to Less Than Fancy, this is my personal blog about fashion, beauty, travel and family.  True to my blog name, this is the kind of fashion that looks cute at school drop offs, soccer games, date nights, girls night outs, and vacations!  I can tell you how to make your hair look cute in a pinch and the best products to give your face a little pick me up as you are running out the door.  I am a mom of four kiddos, a wife, friend, daughter, sister.  My friends joke around and call me the mayor because they know I love chatting with people. I thought writing a blog about the things I love will connect me with people that share in my passions.

A bit about me….I have been married to the love of my life for 16 years this August. We met in college and never looked back.  We have four beautiful kids.  I chose to be a stay at home mom.  I have loved fiercely, cried, had sleepless nights, beamed with pride, felt like I was rocking this mom thing and the next day thought maybe someone should fire me.  The last 13 years of motherhood have been a journey that no one can ever prepare you for, you just have to live it to understand. I am a no judgment, no drama kinda girl.  I respect the people around me because I know we are all doing our best. Whether you nurse, bottle feed, work or choose to stay home it doesn’t matter me. If you have a good heart and try to be the best version of yourself most of the time, then you have me in your corner.  I LOVE clothes, packing for trips, coffee, Tahoe, make-up, cocktails, and feeling healthy. Welcome to Less Than Fancy!

  Hi friends! My name is Nicole Runfola. I ADORE clothes, cocktails, nature, long walks and sitting by a fire with a glass of wine. Finding what color looks best on skin tones is fun for me and I am a sucker for a great accessory. Beyond all those fun little facts I am, at my core, a sensitive, loyal and flawed person. I am a mom to four amazing kiddos who I love with the deepest part of my heart. I am married to Erik, he is a handsome, genuine and hardworking man you I am crazy about. I love growing older with him. I find it a bit romantic to watch what is left of his hair turn grey! There is something in my soul that wants people to feel comfortable and ease around me. I have lived by the motto that I am no better or worse than anyone. If I happen to meet you and you are new to an environment, I will introduce you to other people I know and most likely more than once. 😂 I love the people in my life. I am not sure how I got so blessed to have so many around me that make me better. I think I am funny, probably funnier than I actually am and I appreciate people that can make me laugh. Because really, a good laugh makes most things better. Follow me in Instagram @lessthanfancy for a quick way to see what is happening. Cheers, Nicole

    1. Thanks Meg. I am not even done with the layout and I need to figure out how to link outfits and what not but at least I took the first step to putting myself out there. At least that’s what I am telling myself. Thank you for your support. You know I just love you!

    1. Thank you. Love you! My second post still has some grammar errors I have not had a chance to go back through but since it is just friends and family now, I figure I have a few mistakes people are willing to look over. 😬😳🙏🏼
