New mug who dis? 💁🏽‍♀️ Embracing all the fall vibes and picked up this cutie at @homegoods. I’m more of a summer gal, but I always try to welcome the change of pace fall brings. It’s a time for slowing down and spending time with loved ones. Also, ya girl loves all things pumpkin-related. I’m also excited to change up my makeup looks with darker lips and winged liner. What are you looking forward to about fall? 🎃🍂 #sundayfunday #fall #autumn

Happy #tartetuesday peeps! ✨ I’m pretty excited about this week’s share since my mind is already thinking all things fall and this formula is 👌🏽. These are the @tartecosmetics Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paints. I do own a couple more shades, but these are the ones I will be wearing this fall season. [Left to Right: Park Ave. Princess, Killin It, & Xoxo] A little about the formula, of all the liquid lippies I own, these def have the most wear time. I usually choose these if I am going to an all day event like a festival, wedding, or concert since they will last HOURS. (Even through food & drink! 💁🏽‍♀️) However..since they have a very matte finish, I highly recommend that you do a little lip tlc before application. Use a lip scrub and balm to fully prep the lips. Also, when using the more intense shades, I like to use a lip liner for more crisp lines. During @ultabeauty 21 Days of Beauty, you can snag these for a mere $10 instead of $20 so I would wait till then to pick up a few shades. They have a nice range of nudes and pinks with a couple bold shades in there. Def recommend you pick these up if you are looking for a long-wearing, ultra matte lip! 💄 #tartetuesday #nurturingbeauty #makeup

Cheers to the weekend guys! ✨🎉My plans include resting and spending time with loved ones. This week has def been a bit crazy with teaching and coaching, but it’s nothing a little time off can’t fix. Also, this Detox Mask from @teamiblends always aids in the #selfcare department. 💚 This mask contains matcha, lemongrass, and clay which assists the skin in removing toxins and reducing inflammation. I don’t know what I love more, the way my skin feels after each use or the fact that there is matcha in this 😂. I apply this once a week and have noticed my skin to be much more radiant and clear. Although I do have mostly oily skin, this mask does NOT dry out my few dry patches. An all around winner in my book if you ask me 🤷🏽‍♀️. Want to try this mask out for yourself? Please use my discount code 15NB for 15% off. Guys I cannot tell you how thankful I am for this partnership with @teamiblends. Their products are vegan, non-GMO, soy-free, dairy-free, 75% Organic, and cruelty free. Just a couple other reasons to love this mask. 💁🏽‍♀️💚 #teamipartner #nurturingbeauty

Happy Tuesday! ✨ Decided to kick off this #tartetuesday series by featuring the @tartecosmetics “Gifted” mascara. •I have been reviewing this little guy for the past couple weeks, and I have to say, it has really grown on me. I typically don’t like to judge a mascara based on the first couple uses since I believe they get better with time. Same goes for this guy. I would give it about a week before you see the true formula. One coat makes for a more natural daytime look, while 2-3 coats def give your lashes more volume. I love a buildable mascara since they are travel friendly and are transitional to various makeup looks. •Is it the best mascara I’ve ever tried? Nope. One con is that it sometimes bunches lashes together and gives a “clumpy” look, however if you use a spoolie to run through your lashes, you should be fine. Also, use an eyelash curler beforehand for best results. •All in all, I would recommend this mascara to try out. @ultabeauty will sometimes have sales on this during the “21 Days of Beauty” and you can purchase this guy for $10.00, I would wait till then instead of spending the full price of $23.00. •Lastly, my reviews are never complete without telling you why it’s a clean, green beauty machine. This mascara is vegan and formulated without parabens, Mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates, and gluten. What is your fave nontoxic mascara? I’m look for new recommendations! 💚 #tartetuesdays #nurturingbeauty #tartecosmetics

Happy September peeps! 🍂 I’m celebrating the start of another season with @physiciansformula Healthy Lip Velvet in “Nut-ritious”. It’s such a beautiful warm, brown-red shade that I’ll pretty much be wearing the entire fall season. I can see myself swiping this on before work or brunch with a friend. Talk about a versatile lip color! 💁🏽‍♀️ What is your go to lipstick for the fall season? 🍂💄 #nurturingbeauty

Happy Tuesday peeps! Hope everyone has been having an amazing week so far! 💗 So recently I have been organizing my makeup products and I have come to realize that I am an addict to @tartecosmetics. I mean, I can’t help it when their products are amazing and @ultabeauty has a killer rewards program. 🤷🏽‍♀️ So I decided I’m gonna share my addiction with y’all in a new post series entitled #tartetuesdays From now on, every Tuesday (until I go through my entire collection), I will share a @tartecosmetics product that has made its way into my beauty collection. I will also post via instastories about how the product applies and how it looks on my skin tone. I’m very excited to start this new series and I can’t wait to share my collection with you all! 🙌🏽 *Also, for those of you wondering, @tartecosmetics is a cruelty free cosmetics line with many of their products being vegan. They are formulated without parabens, Mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and gluten. They are an AMAZING brand for someone who is just transitioning to cleaner Beauty. 💚 #tartetuesdays #nurturingbeauty

Sundays are made for vegan cooking classes and hanging with @jeannee17 at my #secondhome. The matcha here always hits the spot. 🤤 Hope everyone has a restful & rejuvenating day! ☀️🍵 #nurturingbeauty #mantracoffee #sundayfunday

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is having a great week so far! 💗 I recently added more shades from the @physiciansformula The Healthy Lip Velvets line to my collection. (To see the entirety of my addiction to this formula, scroll a couple posts back.) “Noir-ishing Plum” is on the left and “Raisin’ Immunity” on the right. Really digging these shades for the upcoming fall season. I can already tell “Raisin’ Immunity” will be my go to nude. As I have stated before, these bad boys are one of my fave lipstick formulas ever....even when compared to conventional liquid lipstick formulas. Only time will tell how long it will take for me to own the entire collection. 🤷🏽‍♀️ #nurturingbeauty #physiciansformula

It’s Friday y’all!! So happy to use this weekend for rest and to spend time with loved ones. Part of my self care routine this weekend is a good old hair wash. I know this sounds very basic but I don’t wash my hair as often as most since I have very curly hair. (The oils from my scalp take longer to get to my roots so I wash less to not disturb that process. I typically wash every 4-5 days.) When I do wash, it’s a longer process since I really work the product into my scalp and roots. Recently, I have been loving this duo from @sheamoisture. Their “Manuka Honey & Yogurt Hydrate and Repair” collection is just what my strands need after a week of teaching and coaching. Most of the time my hair is in a twisted bun and while this is easy and practical, it causes strain and breakage to my hair. I’m trying to be better about letting my hair down more often but this LA heat is NOT helping. Any who, if you have hair that is need in some hydration tlc, just know ya girl highly recommends these. Have a great weekend peeps! ✌🏽💗 #nurturingthelionmane

Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes and those who were able to celebrate this day with me. So blessed to have so many beautiful souls in my life. 25 is my favorite number so it’s gonna be the best year ever. Plus, just became a plant mom, so say hello to”David” the Dieffenbachia! 🌿💗 #futureplantlady

Enjoying the last hours before the school year starts and I go back to being a teacher and a coach! As I plan out my lessons and practices, my makeup routine usually gets placed on the back-burn. I’m thankful for products like this @honeybeegardens Truly Natural Lipstick in “Thoroughbred” that allows me to look put together wherever I go. 💄 It’s a beautiful sheer pink with brown undertones that is universally flattering for any skin tone. I find that it goes with a variety of makeup looks. I love to pair it with bronze shades to give the skin a flushed but golden look. It is a very hydrating formula that unfortunately does not stay on long. It transfers to napkins, cups, and cheeks if you are not careful. However, I don’t mind re-applying ever so often. Since the formula is so hydrating it feels like I am reapplying my favorite lip balm. I really do love this shade and hope to pick up a couple more. 💗💄 #nurturingbeauty #honeybeegardens

Sundays are made for driving into Beverly Hills and making a matcha stop at @alfredtea. An iced matcha latte with almond milk is just what the doctor ordered for this SoCal heat! Happy Sunday y’all! 💗 #sundayfunday #matcha #nurturingbeauty

@ezhalofan thank you for 6 years of absolute bliss. So much laughter, love, and happiness has filled these past years and I am forever grateful. I can’t wait to see where this crazy road of life takes us next! I love you! ❤️ #happy6years

Enjoying the last days of July in the pool with @hummkombucha in my hand! ☀️🌊 Their new “Hopped Grapefruit” flavor has all the summer vibes. Grapefruit juice & actual Citra hops? It’s basically a beer for a happy and healthy gut. 💁🏽‍♀️ I def recommend a try of this bad boy before they sell out. Happy Sunday peeps! ✌🏽 #sundayfunday #nurturingbeauty #kombuchaaddict

Happy Wednesday Friends! Hope you are all finding ways to stay cool on this very warm day in SoCal! ☀️🔥 So my mom and I have recently decided to try recipes inspired by the Mediterranean diet and believe me when I tell you this one we tried tonight.... is ridiculously yummy. These “Mediterranean Chicken Quinoa Bowls” from @pinterest are DELISH. 🤤 Plus, they are filled with nutrient-dense ingredients to help you feel your best during this scorching heat. (Cucumber & tomatoes are just to name a few.) This recipe is a bit long so if you want the deets, just shoot me a DM. 💗 #nurturingbeautyeats #summergrubbin

@cocokindskincare thank you for making this amazing gem! Tbh, I’m usually not a fan of face oils since I have oily combination skin, but this product works WONDERS on my dry patches. Since it is a heavier formula I only use 1 pump and gently dab in the areas needed. Oily girls have no fear, your hydrating solution is here! 💗 #verycheesy #cocokindskincare #nurturingbeauty

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce my secret for sun kissed, bronzed summer skin... the @physiciansformula Butter Bronzer in “Deep Bronzer.” 👏🏾 ☀️ To be quite honest, I never thought I needed bronzer since I always had naturally dark skin. However, after playing around with this beauty, I’ve realized a subtle bronzer only enhances my natural tan. I really don’t apply much, mostly just in my creases and cheek bones with my fingertips, yet the result is STUNNING. (Check my previous Summer #motd for proof.) If you are of a lighter skin tone, I can even see this being effective for contouring. All in all, I can’t say anything bad about this bronzer... it’s borderline perfect. Oh, and it’s also free of parabens, gluten, and oil as well as hypoallergenic and cruelty free. Not bad for a $15.00 green beauty bronzer. 💁🏽‍♀️🌿💗 #nurturingbeauty #physiciansformula

One of my favorite forms of self-care definitely has to be polishing my nails. There is something so therapeutic about each brushstroke of color that hits my nails. 💅🏽 • Even before I fully transitioned into Green Beauty, @pacificabeauty nail polish was a fave of mine. It always applied very smoothly and has an average wear time of a week and a half. (W/out base & top coat) Even to this day as a green beauty blogger, @pacificabeauty nail polish is one that I repeatedly reach for when I am doing an at home mani or pedi. They have a 7-free nail polish formula that is 100% vegan & cruelty free. Also, their shades are just too pretty! • I have the shade “Dark Desert Highway” on most of my nails and “Palm Springs” on my ring finger...you know to be extra 💁🏽‍♀️. What is your fave green beauty nail polish? 💗 #nurturingbeauty #pacificabeauty
