WHY AND HOW YOU CAN SWITCH TO CRUELTY FREE COSMETICS

(Photo of my late rabbit Salt and I for a blog post I did for Lush Cosmetics cruelty free kisses campaign in 2013.) In this day and age you would think companies would have realised that testing cosmetics on animals is completely unnecessary and extremely cruel. I first became aware of animal testing when Lush brought their ‘fighting animal testing’ campaign out years and years ago, and ever since I vowed to never buy products from companies that tested on animals. I admit I have had the occasional slip ups as some companies claim with misleading disclaimers that they are…

SOAP AND GLORY COLOUR CORRECTING CONCEALER STICKS

With out fail whenever I am in a boots store I check the Soap and Glory counter to see if they have any new products in. For a while they never did and I already had almost every product they sold! Recently they’ve been expanding their range and I couldn’t be happier! Extreme colour correcting has been a trend for a while but I’m no way a pro when it comes to make up so I have never had the urge to try it. Soap and Glory is one of my favourite make up brands and when I saw they…

MAY FAVOURITES | 2016

Micro Mini Beauty Blender – I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that Boots are now selling the original Beauty Blenders! I spotted the micro mini’s and thought they would be the perfect thing for blending in under eye concealer, and they are! They fit right up in the inner corner and blend everything out seamlessly. Beauty Liquid Blender Cleanser – I spotted this in Boots and made the quickest impulse buy I have ever made. But I’m so pleased I did! This is a cleaning solution specifically for your make up sponges and I was literally gob smacked…

THE NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY SHOW

Last year I went to the Northumberland County Show for the first time and had such a good time that I had to come back again this year! I have known about this show for years but never got the chance to go but now I know this is going to be an annual occurrence for me for years to come! The show is similar to a lot that happen around the UK, it is an event where loads of farmers, breeders and all sorts come to show off their best stock and participate in shows where their animals are…

MY FAVOURITE CRUELTY FREE BEAUTY PRODUCTS

For years now I have only bought products that were not tested on animals and I wanted to share my favourites with you today. Soap and Glory Micellar water – If anyone uses the Garnier micellar water, this Soap and Glory one is such a great cruelty free alternative. I pore some of this on a makeup wipe and wipe it over my face to begin to remove my make up. I can’t use a make up wipe with out this now as it adds extra moisture to the wipe and removes make up so much faster. It reduces the…

MY NAIL CARE ROUTINE FOR LONG NATURAL NAILS

I always get complimented on my nails and often people mistake them as being fake but they are actually my own nails. Strong nails run in my family, my mum and my grandma both have always had long strong nails so a lot of the reasons why I can grow them so long is because of my genetics. Another reason why I think my nails are so good is due to my diet, I’ve been vegetarian for almost four years and recently turned vegan. Ever since I’ve been vegetarian I really have noticed an increase in the strength in my…
