Catching a Vibe at Vesta Coffee Roasters

Happy Sunday, friends. Welcome to the second month of 2020! I hope January treated you kindly. I e-bumped into so many people on Instagram complaining about how long the month was for them, but that wasn’t my experience at all. I solidified my content plan for the year, bought a new couch for my place,…

60-Day Apartment Update Featuring Unique Loom

Hey girl, hey. If you recall, I moved into my new apartment in Las Vegas last December. It’s hard to believe two months have passed since my move-in, but I wanted to pop in for a quick update. I’ve really enjoyed taking my time with adding personal touches to the space. I really wanted to…

Loving Your Womb — The Birthplace for Creativity

Hello, friends. I have given serious thought to what I mean when I use the term wombman. Am I referring to women only? Do I desire to connect only with humans granted the ability to reproduce? For women unable to produce children, are they no longer wombmen? Are we, as women, capable of producing more…

Pardon Our Dust! Introducing Wombman Reclaimed

Good morning, friends. I trust you’re well. Throughout this post you’ll see snaps from my morning stroll through UNLV’s beautiful campus. It took me back to my IU days of walking from class to class, catching buses, running late for everything (some things never change), and spending time with interesting personalities from all over the…

Hey Alexa, play New Apartment by Ari Lennox.

Hello December! Today I moved into my new apartment in Las Vegas. It’s tiny and colorful and perfect for me and my chubby Chihuahua. For a short while I sat in my empty bedroom alone with the thought that I haven’t lived on my own since undergrad. We’re talking 12 years, guys. I’ve shared space…

8 Things To Do in Boulder City, Nevada

Hello friends! I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day weekend. Many of my travels and green beauty finds fail to make it to this online space, so today I’m turning things around by sharing a few pictures from my time in Boulder City, Nevada. One of the only two cities in Nevada that prohibits gambling,…

In Review — Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Full Coverage Liquid Makeup

New foundation alert! I stumbled upon Burt’s new line of liquid foundation last week and took it for a spin today. I’ve purchased several products from the Burt’s Bees line over the years, mostly lip products, so I was interested to see how the foundation would perform. Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Full Coverage Liquid Makeup…

Instagram Going Down Was the Best Thing That Happened To Me This Week

As many of you know, Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp have been down for hours. I’ll admit I freaked out about it initially. What am I supposed to do with myself? How will anyone see the outfit I’m wearing? Yes, girl. These thoughts actually crossed my mind. After refreshing the app more times than I’m comfortable…

Vanessa Simmons’ Sugar Me Skincare Launch

This Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting Vanessa Simmons. She rolled out her new line of natural face and body products at Beauty Kitchen Boutique in Boulder City. Her product line, Sugar Me, features all-natural, cruelty-free skincare products handmade in the US. In the brief moments that we spoke, Vanessa shared how important it…

Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorant

Happy Friday lovelies! I’m back with another review. I posted a pic on the ‘gram showing off my latest clean beauty find – Schmidt’s Tea Tree Sensitive Skin Deodorant Stick. A couple weeks back I ran out of my natural deodorant, and used my guy’s brand for two days out of desperation. Big mistake. My…

Pacifica “Cinnamon Girl” 7 Free Nail Color

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re well. Just stopping by to show off my favorite shade of red — “Cinnamon Girl” by Pacifica Beauty. I will continue visiting the nail salon at least monthly for pedicures, but I decided to stick with the DIY approach for my manicures. I’m never completely satisfied with how my nails…

Nontoxic Feminine Care with The Honey Pot Company

Happy Wednesday lovelies! I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids in 2013 and had a painful reminder of their presence again in 2017. Since that time I’ve learned so much about hormonal imbalance, the importance of a plant-based diet, and the environmental and emotional stressors that affect the womb. I was shocked to learn the connection…

Unboxed — Green Beauty for Us “Revive Your Glow” Spring Box

Happy Monday lovelies! I have fallen behind on my daily blogging goal, but I’m jumping back on the horse today with a belated unboxing post. I subscribed to the Green Beauty for Us quarterly subscription box to support fellow green beauty and wellness blogger Keisha Adinkra, and to expand my horizons on non-toxic beauty and…

Visiting Havasoap in Lake Havasu

Hello lovelies! The travel bug bit over the weekend, so I hopped in the car and drove 150 miles to Lake Havasu City for a visit. Lake Havasu has been on my list of places to visit for years. I first heard about it on an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  One of…

Get The Look ⁠— A Spring Fling

Hello lovelies! Spring has sprung (ugh, cliché…) and I’m all about it. After digging around in my makeup bag, I put together this look. Perfect for spring (or whenever else) amiright? Reminds me of hydrangeas. What do you think? EYES Eyeshadow: Silk Naturals “Novel” + “Lewd” + “Aubergine” Brows: EcoBrow “Liz” Lashes: Ardell Professional “Demi…

80+ Black-Owned Brands Changing The Face of Green Beauty + Wellness

Black-Owned Clean Beauty + Wellness Brands (Updated 4/1/18) Wombman Reclaimed exists to uplift non-toxic, natural and organic beauty brands. We also seek to advocate for women underrepresented in the beauty and fashion industries. Black women. Disproportionately we are excluded, and disproportionately we are harmed by the indirect (and often direct) message society often sends: “You can’t…

Galaxy Bomb by da Bomb Bath Fizzers

Hello lovelies! The dust has settled on my content plan for 2018. Yay! I thought I’d kick things off with a review of the Galaxy Bomb by Da Bomb. I stumbled upon this brand of bath bombs at Target a few days ago, and thought it was super cute that two teeny bopper sisters founded…

Honestly pHresh Natural Deodorant

Hello lovelies! After years of using Primal Pit Paste without any issues, my skin decided it no longer liked baking soda. I never developed a rash, but the color of my arm pits began to change. Not cute. I had great success with the baking-soda free scent from the same brand, and also with Schmidt’s….

Get The Look ⁠— Sky Full of Stars

Well lookie here, lovelies! My first post of the year. I thought I’d ease back into regular blogging with this makeup look featuring my favorite green beauty brands: PlainJaneBeauty and Burt’s Bees. The lovely Maria with Hercules Beard Co. commented on my IG post that this look reminded her of stardust from a starry night….

The Essential Oils I Use for Skincare + Wellness

Hello lovelies! Happy November! I thought I’d kick things off by showing you what essential oils I have in my collection. I don’t use every oil every day of course, but I have used almost every oil in my stash. The majority of my oils are from Edens Garden.  Edens Garden is an extremely affordable…

Get The Look ⁠— A Floral Romance

Hello lovelies! Just popping in to share a quick makeup look with you. Nature offers the best inspiration (in my opinion) for color combinations, and I loved the romantic energy of these fuschia flowers. Today’s makeup look is my interpretation of a dance between lovers. Where do you find inspiration for makeup looks? The sun was…

Lotus Moon Tonic Minerals Facial Toner

Hello lovelies! Now that I’ve settled into Sin City, I have the mental clarity to crank out the bazillion product reviews and demos I’ve left sitting on the back burner. Many moons ago I received the complete line of Lotus Moon Skincare, and many of Plain Jane Beauty’s product offerings. Both lines are extremely impressive!…

If You’re Vegan, Why Are You So Mean?

Hello lovelies! I’ve got a bone to pick with some of you. (Don’t worry, the bone came from a sustainably-raised grass-fed cow who lived a long, happy life. Moo.) My recent health scare is responsible for my return to plant-based cuisine, and I’m so grateful for the not-so-subtle reminder of the healing power of food….

Cathedral Rock Trail on Mt. Charleston

Hello lovelies! I’d like to share a few pictures from my recent visit to Mt. Charleston. The weather reporters mentioned a 20° difference between Mt. Charleston and Red Rock, so I chose Cathedral Rock as a temporary escape from Las Vegas’ summer heat. It was my first day back to my happy place (nature) since my…

Sinful Colors “Soul Mate”

Hey ladies! Short nails don’t care! I painted my nubbins with Sinful Colors “Soul Mate” this morning. Sinful Colors is not the “cleanest” nontoxic nail polish brand (whatever that means), but the varnishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate). Expecting an “all natural” or completely “nontoxic” nail varnish is a bit silly…

4 Life Lessons I Learned from Wildflowers

  Hello lovely! I stumbled upon this gem of a quote online yesterday, and for some reason it continues to speak to me. Daisy: What kind of a garden do you come from? Alice: Oh, I don’t come from any garden. Daisy: Do you suppose she’s a wildflower? Alice in Wonderland Do you suppose I’m a…

Let’s Talk About Infinity Jars

Hello beautiful people! Time sure flies. It was over a month ago when I received these gorgeous glass cosmetic bottles from Infinity Jar in exchange for an honest write-up. If you enjoy DIY beauty as much as I do, I think you’ll agree with me that these glass jars truly are a must-have! One thing…

That Time I Used Calamine Lotion as a Primer for My Oily Skin

Right now is a prime time to talk about priming! I stopped using Milk of Magnesia (MoM) as a face primer when I read about how damaging it could be to the skin over time. MoM is too acidic for daily use, and can break down your skin’s protective barrier if used too often. No…
