This makeup look took me 10 minutes and it makes me so happy to finally have my everyday makeup look down! 🥰

Fun fact: On November 2nd, 2012 I told my parents I would agree to an arranged marriage.
On November 3rd, 2012 Seth asked me out on a date and my life changed forever.

I grew up bullied for smelling like curry, being fat and different and for wearing clothes from Walmart while the cool kids were decked in name brands.
Now this curry scented, plus sized, proud to be different, Target and Walmart clothes wearing girl is traveling the world and living the life of her dreams.
Remember, who you are is nothing to be ashamed of. Dare to OWN what they want you to apologize for. ☀️💖

“WTF so fat! Shouldn’t be wearing that.”
This was one of the DMs I received yesterday (among several of this kind) after sharing a video on my Instagram stories in this outfit.
I don’t know who made these exclusive fashion rules based on body shape, but I’ll happily break each rule every day and strike a fierce pose while I’m at it. My body is perfect for a crop top, a bikini, short shorts, mini skirts and more - and yours is too.
So this is me on the pink carpet serving a LEWK and baring my beautiful skin because I can and I always will. 🦋

Still swooning over my trip to Dubai and my life changing experience with @HudaBeauty 🥰 SO MUCH is happening right now. So many exciting things are unfolding and all I can do is keep twirling in happiness and gratitude.
I will never forget these moments. As I prepare for the most exciting shoot of my career to date, I still find myself wondering how I got here and how I can use this platform to serve and make God, my parents and you proud. 🥰

Make the choice today. Decide to love your reflection in the mirror. Decide to be kinder to yourself. Decide that your insecurities will no longer win and won’t stand a chance to the radiant, confident you that is waiting to bloom. Decide because you’re worth fighting for.

Younger, insecure Nabela had no idea what the future had in store. Unapologetic, confident Nabela still doesn’t - even after so much has happened. The best is yet to come.

I can’t explain how perfect today was. To have someone believe in you is the most priceless gift in the world. I am so thankful to have such a successful powerhouse supporting me and my dreams. @HudaBeauty is everything I hoped she’d be in real life and more: a genuine, down to earth dreamer who just wants to make the world a better place.
I am in awe of Huda’s work ethic, the positive work environment she’s fostered & the amazing empire she has built. You guys know how much family means to me so naturally meeting @MonaKattan, @AlyaKattan and their Baba was such a special moment I’ll cherish forever. Everything was such a blur today and I’m still not sure if any of this is real. This has all just been such a fairytale experience...
After gushing over our shared passions and values until we literally had no time left, we realized we spent every moment enjoying each other’s company and that we forgot to grab our phones to capture the moment. So we quickly snapped this in the corner of her office to commemorate our first time officially meeting and all that’s to come ahead.
I am overwhelmed and unbelievably excited for the future. I hope to one day be to someone what Huda has been to me.
Going to bed feeling thankful, thankful, thankful. 💛

It still blows my mind that when we met, we were still chasing our dreams and making ends meet the best way we knew how. Traveling the world together seemed like a distant fantasy that often felt out of reach.
Now we’re chasing even bigger, wilder dreams and traveling the world together still feels surreal. Reminiscing on this beautiful trip to Paris as we prep for the trip of a lifetime tomorrow. I can’t wait for you guys to see where we’re going. Where I’m going and who we are meeting is truly a dream come true.
I guess that’s the point of this post —
Dreams really, truly do come true.
If it happened to us, it will happen for you. 💛
