We're loving all things Nicolette Durazzo lately. Whether it's her aesthetic Insta, her super fun daily TikToks or her new YouTube series where—in totally Nicolette fashion—she tries to recreate her Starbucks faves, we love this relatable queen. So we sat down to chat with her and get all the inside info, plus some real talk advice.

Can you walk us through a day in the life of Nicolette?
I start almost every day with a coffee, as most of my followers know. I don't have a routine as I am always on the move. I usually film content with friends and then will finish up tasks I have for the day. I always try to make room for a workout as well!

You've got 1.4M followers on TikTok, which is huge! Can you tell us how you got started and what your favorite type of TikTok content is?
I really got started on TikTok during the beginning of the quarantine with my brother, and then we got a following off of our coffee videos. I enjoy doing dance videos and vlogs the most. 

We love your new YouTube series, "Nicolatte"! Can you tell us how you got started creating?
I actually got the idea from my fans. I got lots of comments about my drinks and decided it would be a good idea to make them at home. I thought it would also be cool if my fans got to take part in this by suggesting drinks to make, so I decided to make a series out of it.


Starbucks drink: Grande iced vanilla latte (with an extra pump of vanilla!)

Singer: Olivia Rodrigo (although I love country music, too!)

Movie: Clueless, Legally Blonde, and Mean Girls

TikToker: Katie Feeney

Fashion trend: Layered skirts

Snack: Takis and Hot Cheetos (and Juicy Drop Pops, ofc)

Beach or pool? Beach days always

What do you love most about content creation for social media and why?
I love that I get to do it with friends, and I can create an authentic connection with my followers. I feel that I make a positive impact with my content, and I love making fun videos!

What are some of your goals for the future?
I have lots of goals for the future, I'm so young and have so much to look forward to. One of my goals is to one day own a brand of my own, whether that's a clothing brand, makeup line, or anything else that people would love and use in their everyday life. 

What advice would you give to tween girls who want to get started on YouTube or TikTok?
Don't let anyone stop you. Lots of people will put you down, and you have to remember that their opinion has nothing to do with you. If you want to do something, I say go for it!
