๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› yesterday I enjoyed some of the best vegan authentic Mexican food Iโ€™ve ever had from @tumerico โœจ the flavors are so vibrant and deep with such a unique flair ๐Ÿ˜ I absolutely adored the (pictured) Korean Cactus Tacos! It was such an unexpected fusion of spices and flavors but it worked so beautifully. Another fave was their Chimichurri Eggplant Tacos & Butternut Squash Tamales. If ever in Tucson, definitely give this place a try!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿดโค๏ธ

girls โ˜† support โ˜† girls - today feels so fitting to talk about the power of girls, and how important it is for us to empower, uplift, and support one another. Today, I was so surprised and humbled when @niasioux (who is incredibly talented and inspiring) listed me as her #RoleModel Monday. Nia doesnโ€™t know me personally, but she sees the value in sharing another girls voice and message as if it were her own. This is beautiful. โค๏ธ When we share about each otherโ€™s journeys, triumphs, victories, and how we are slaying in the world we uplift our community immensely. I wanted to take this moment to thank and highlight a few girls who Iโ€™m lucky to call my friends and constantly inspire me. They are doing incredible things/making change & doing so with grace, humility, authenticity, and power. Iโ€™ve got so much love for them! โค๏ธ swipe to check them out! #GirlsSupportGirls - Iโ€™m also going to start doing features on amazing girls each week via my instastory โค๏ธ stay tuned! #GirlPower
