Since leaving her home in Australia to pursue a career as a model, Nicole Trunfio has worked for brands including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Christian Dior, and Gucci, just to name a few. Now a mother of two and creator of jewelry line ERTH, Nicole updated us on her favorite beauty secrets, mother moments, and inspiration for her new exquisite line of jewelry.

YOUR INSPIRATION
In your career…

I left home at the age of 16 after winning a modeling contract at the FORD Supermodel of the World contest. I love my family so much, and I loved school, so I didn’t want to leave Australia at the time. My inspiration has always been, if you have to leave the things you love most, you better make it worth it.

In your life as a wife and mother of two…

My everyday mantra in my head goes like this: Make them proud to be your husband and children, encourage them to be emotionally stable and confident, teach them to respect you but also feel comfortable enough to tell you their deepest, most private feelings with ease.

For your jewelry line ERTH

I wanted to create beautiful and fun fine jewelry of the highest quality, but at an accessible everyday price point. Wearable must haves!

YOUR DAY
Morning beauty routine (when you have 2 little ones!)…

A flick of eyeliner always makes me feel more me, and lifts any tiredness from the everyday grind! Also moisture moisture moisture!

Your favorite places in the city for brunch/lunch/coffee…

I love the Bowery Hotel Lobby, especially being a mother. It’s so easy and comfortable, my home away from home. Totto Ramen served  the best ramen I have eaten so far. Bar Pitti is great for pasta and hanging out. Balthazar is my go-to for Sunday Brunch and a SoHo stroll.

Favorite stores for the home and for kids…

At the moment I’m remodeling our ranch in Texas. I love mixing vintage finds with pieces from Restoration Hardware. For kids, I love a lot of brands that come out of Australia.

Favorite piece(s) from ERTH

The chola hoopsthe diamond initial necklaces, and the new diamond pendant collection, particularly the woman sign and the evil eye!

I love anything with hyaluronic acid in it. My friends have developed great lines that make me proud: Equal Beauty and LUMA for makeup! I love Sisley eye mask (but as a face mask) before events as a pick-me-up for the ultimate glow!
