Fall just got a little sexier with the new fall collection from Orosa Beauty. Orosa Pure Cover Nail Paint officially release last month with a beautiful summer collection that could easily transition into fall. This vegan, 14-free, and the non-toxic brand have received numerous positive reviews. I am personally in love with Orosa. In addition to its non-toxic features, their nail paint is fast drying and you only need two coats, no bottom or topcoat required. How great is that!

With all that awesomeness going on, you definitely are going to want to check out the fall collection. Orosa introduces 3 new “shades of modern classics to your nail wardrobe, inspired by the bold, crisp hues of the shifting season.”

Introducing Pure Cover Nail Paint by Orosa Beauty-5 Reasons This is Your New Favorite Vegan Nail Polish

I love when my nails are done, especially when the nail color is amazing. Photos pop a little bit more when your nails have been adorned. I was so excited to try out Orosa Pure Cover Nail Paint before it’s launch today. I’m just going to go ahead and say you should just buy the entire collection! Here are a few reasons why!

Stunning Summer Shades

Orosa came into the vegan nail polish game with colors that will have so indecisive as to what color to wear first. Their shades scream summer. They scream bold. They scream “I know you see my nails, they look amazing don’t they?” All of the colors are beautiful. Every.Single.Color. And to be honest this summer collection can easily be worn in Fall, Winter, and Spring. I’m a fan.

Cuticle Hugging Paint Brush

Applying the paint was stress-free as it features this cool curved brush that essentially hugs the natural shape of your cuticles. That little feature makes doing your own nails so much easier. Not only is the brush curved, but it’s also much shorter than most nail polish paintbrushes that you see. This allows for a more precise brushstroke.

Quick-dry, Long Wearing, All-In-One Formula

Use Orosa Pure Cover Nail Paint and you’ll only need two coats and that’s it! No need for top or bottom coat! I LOVE that the paint dries very fast. I mean who wants to sit around all day waiting on their nails to dry? Not me! With their long-wearing formula, you have more time to decide which color to rock next!

14-Free

What’s even more awesome about Orosa Beauty is their dedication to providing safe products without the use of questionable, harmful, or unethical ingredients. Their paint is 14-free, “formulated without Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, Camphor, Triphenyl Phosphate, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, MEHQ/HQ, MIT, Palm Oil, Parabens, Animal-Derived Ingredients, and Gluten.”

Cruelty-Free

All Orosa Beauty products and the ingredients are never tested on animals. Just one more reason to love Orosa Pure Cover Nail Paint. ❤️

Pizza Rules Everything Around Me | Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria Brings Their Love of Music, Art and Pizza To Atlanta

Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria ~ West Midtown Atlanta

In 2017, three college friends, Clint Gray, Derrick Moore and E.J. Reed, opened their first Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria in North Nashville. This past May, they brought their Pizza.Art.Music restaurant concept to Atlanta. It is quickly becoming Atlanta’s new favorite artisan pizza destination.

The Experience

Upon entering the West Midtown establishment, you are given your 3 step guide to the ultimate Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria experience. You start by ordering your pizza. There are two options, select one of their Signature Pizzas or Build Your Own. Pizzas come in two sizes, slim (10”) and husky (16”). All pizza dough and sauces are made daily from scratch in the restaurant. Signature pizzas are named after the founders’ favorite hip hop and r&b artist and songs. You’ll find the Cee No Green, Got 5 On It, The Smokin’ Herb, and the Red Light Special on the menu. Look out for their Signature Vegan Pizza, Nothin But A “V” Thing!

I ordered the California Love (Spinach Basil Pesto, S+H House Cheese Blend, Artichoke, Sliced Tomato Blend and Red Onion). I also opted to add shrimp to my pizza. As part of the Slim & Husky’s experience, your pizza is built right in front of you. After selecting all of your toppings, your pizza is placed in the oven to be baked to perfection.

Next, you pay for your food and select your beverage of choice. Slim & Husky’s offers a nice selection of local beers as well as an additional list of craft beers curated by craft beer blogger, Ale Sharpton. If you’re the mood for a refreshing cocktail, check their Ice Ice Babies. I tried the Tea Bozz, a very tasty tea lemonade and vodka frozen treat. Slim & Husky’s also has sweet tea and fountain drinks, including a selection from Stubborn Soda.

You definitely don’t want to leave without ordering their amazingly delicious Cinnamon Rolls. There are 5 flavors to choose from that can be purchased at 2 for $5 or 6 for $12. I tasted all 5 flavors and enjoyed each one. You most definitely should try all 5 flavors! My favorite was the Ms. Berry. The Ms. Berry Cinnamon Roll was made with blueberry and a fresh lemon glaze. Delicious!!

Shortly after ordering, your name will be called to pick your pizza up. Be sure to stop by The Drizzle Station to elevate your pizza a couple more notches. There are 6 housemade drizzles to choose from including Jalapeño Cilantro Ranch, Stone Ground Peach Mustard, and Chipotle Pineapple BBQ.

Drizzle Station

Now it’s time to sit and enjoy what’s been carefully prepared for you. My pizza was absolutely delicious! I believe a great pizza starts with a stellar crust. Slim & Husky’s got that right! Their crust is awesome and the sauce is very good! Love that spinach basil pesto! My pizza was perfectly baked and I enjoyed every bite of it.

Slim & Husky’s concept is inspired by Hip Hop and R&B culture, which you will not only see in the naming of menu items, but also in the decor. Murals and paintings beautifully grace their walls and bring you into the world of Slim + Husky’s.

You will find ample seating inside the restaurant as well as on their outside patio. I loved how bright and lively it was. All that great natural light was perfect for taking pictures! The vibes were great and I can’t wait to go back! #PREAM

Easy Raw Vegan Banana Split

Who doesn’t love a delicious banana split? I know I do! While taking the #RawVeganChallenge, I decided to make a raw vegan version of the classic treat. Instead of ice cream, I used whipped coconut cream, which is a mixture of coconut cream and raw agave. For the toppings, I used some fresh strawberries and walnuts. I also crumbled up some raw vegan brownies on top to elevate it at bit. What’s awesome about this recipe is that it’s totally customizable. I’ve used blueberries, pineapples, mango, pecan, pumpkin seeds, the list is deliciously endless.

This burger was perfectly seasoned and very tasty. I personally was not a fan of the lettuce, but then again I’m not a fan of lettuce. I just took it off. I did, however, enjoy the Angus beef patties, bacon, and a fried egg on top. It was like an elevated breakfast situation. The fries were great as well!

Vegan Beyond Burger

a plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like traditional beef. Featuring a Beyond Burger Patty, topped with pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, and American cheese. You can also enjoy it vegan style without mayonnaise and cheese.

I’ve been a fan of Beyond Meat products for quite some time, so I was very excited to see it as one of BurgerFi’s Build a Better You Resolution-Friendly menu options. If you’re celebrating Veganuary this month definitely stop BurgerFi and pick up this delicious vegan burger.

More resolution-friendly options include:

Grilled Chicken Sandwich: a free-range, all-natural chicken breast, topped with lettuce, tomato and drizzled with a honey mustard BBQ sauce.

Green Style Burgers: drop the bun and go green, enjoy any burger wrapped in fresh, crisp lettuce.

A Little Treat

I couldn’t leave without indulging in a frozen treat! It was adorned with brownies, chocolate sprinkles, and chocolate sauce, topped with whipped cream. You gotta have whipped cream on top!

Very Happy Girl! [Photo: Amber Howell]

I absolutely love this color. Not only is it a nice color, it stays on. My hands have been in a lot of water and the polish still hasn’t peeled or chipped yet! The polish goes on nice and smooth and you really only need one coat. I love it! At the end of month, I’ll be giving you a chance to win a set of polish of your own.
