No eggs, dairy, or anything of the flesh. Plant based. Vegan. All words that seem to scare people and are the butt of the thanksgiving jokes. You know your plate is full of veggies, bread, and sweet potatoes if you're vegan around holiday time. You don't get many options.

*cue trumpets playing a heavenly melody*

Bomb af! Inobe Nicole. Not only has a dope ass sense of style, but she also cooks .. amazing vegan dishes! Once Inobe showed me a couple simple vegan recipes, I was sold. (I went vegan for 2 months but then I had a cheese crumble. My new lifestyle disappeared.) I just needed to rethink traditional dishes that normally held meat as the star. My favorite that I can't STOP making?! The tacos! Made with walnut pieces and cashew halves, cumin, salt (to taste), and olive oil. Topped with red onions, tomatoes, avacado, and cilantro wrapped in a lettuce leaf. Everyone I've made this dish for, fell in love! It's a raw dish (no heat necessary) and only requires a food processor. Perfect! Takes 5 minutes to make.

Be sure to pop over to her website for fashion inspiration and her raw vegan taco recipe!

Soft.Beautiful. Melanin. by NikkRich

You can't deny the beauty of melanin.

I started this project like I do all my portrait projects, with black women in mind. I began shooting black women my Sophomore year of college. Little did I know I started working on something that would clearly be my lifes work. A body of work that will always be loading, playing in the background of every thought and concept. With each new chapter in my life, the project just takes on a new face.  Stylistically they don't look the same, but they have the same underlying intention. Uplift, beauty, care, and love.

Photo Diary: Adventure 🚀 by NikkRich

 *NikkRich gets an idea. She changes her clothes and begins to get ready for an outing. Wondering if her friend, Ferriss Mason would be down she asks Ferriss a question*

NikkRich: "Lets go to Coachella ..."

Ferriss Mason: "Are you serious? I have to get my work done."

NikkRich: "Yea .. lets just go. You see I changed my shorts and put on my earrings."

Ferriss Mason: *Laughs* "You didn't shower though .. and well .. I have to get my work done first."

NR: *Looks down at attire.* "True I should probably take a shower, but we're going. We're going after you finish."

FM: *Bangs computer* "Why won't this website work?!"

NR: "Restart it."

FM: *Restarts computer* "Still not working."

NR: "Lets go."

FM: "Ok."

Mind you, we didn't have much knowledge of where we were going, who we were meeting up with, and how we were going to get to where we were going. It's hard for me to resist a good adventure. Thank God for the Cloud 9 community on top of the parking garage though, we probably wouldn't have made it back home.
