About Me

My name is Nicole and I live in Brisbane Australia with my husband and the worlds 2 cutest cats. I decided to start this blog on Jan 18, 2011.

I love movies, music & television and have ever since I can remember.  I started collecting autographs in 1983 mainly by writing letters to some local celebrities with addresses out of magazines and could not believe it when I got responses. In 1986 I remember finding a book for sale at the local newsagent that was just a book of celebrity addresses, I spent my whole summer holidays writing letters and loved coming home from school to see who had answered. I kept writing on & off over the years and addresses were so much easier to find with the internet. I also tried writing to a venue for the first time in 2002 and could not believe it when my photo of Kylie Minogue came back autographed. I've always loved this hobby & done it on & off over the years since. In the past year or so I have been sending out many requests, in particular trying to get people I missed out on when I was younger.

In 2000 I made friends with a fellow collector in LA and he kindly has obtained a lot of in person autographs for me.  I take my hobby seriously and study & research each autograph to verify its authenticity.  Besides getting to meet celebrities in person at signings, I think through the mail autographs are the most fun - you just never know what might be in your mailbox that day!!

As someone who has always loved movies, I finally got to realise my childhood dream of going to the USA in 2004, visitng LA, Las Vegas, Orlando & New York. In 2005 we took an extended holiday and lived in West Hollywood for a few months and it was one of the best experinces of my life. Some of the things I got to do:

A live taping of the Friends spin off Joey with Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer was directing the episode

2 live tapings of Will & Grace with guest stars Alec Baldwin & Richard Chamberlain

Walk of fame star unveilings for Antonio Banderas & Chralize Theron

Johnny Depp placing his handprints at Graumanns Chinese Theatre

Meeting Val Kilmer & Eliza Dushuku at a movie premiere

Meeting Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt & Kendra Wilkinson at an instore appearance

Meeting Ashlee Simpson at an instore appearance

Go to heaps of TV & Film locations & see lots of celebrity homes

Some of the celebrities I have loved meeting in person in the past year that are very special memories are Guy Sebastian, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Joan Collins, Belinda Carlisle & Olivia Newton John.

This hobby is great fun, the mail brings you surprises all the time & then getting to meet some of your favorite performers in person is the icing on the cake.

Happy Collecting
