THE SHRINK: The frames are funky and worn like reading glasses. I'd wager she's a writer or student.
NIKKI RESPONDS: I am a painter and plan to get my master's in fine arts someday.
THE SHRINK: I think the symbol is related to yoga, which I bet she practices.
NIKKI RESPONDS: It's my om necklace. Om is often chanted while meditating during yoga, so it reminds me to live in balance.
THE SHRINK: Wearing her hair off her face indicates that Nikki's a person who doesn't try to hide things.
NIKKI RESPONDS: I've been told I broadcast my feelings from my face!
THE LIP COLOR
THE SHRINK: Nikki's rosy lipstick is her only obvious makeup supporting my theory that she's in an academic environment where the natural look predominates.
NIKKI RESPONDS: I do like to wear lipstick and, occasionally, eyeshadow. I have to avoid anything more because of my sensitive skin.
