The other day, I popped to Superdrug to buy toothpaste, and as soon as I set foot in the place I remembered I’d also run out of concealer that morning. I’m not really sure what happened between that moment and an hour later when I was running back to work with swatches and creams and… Continue reading Four things I’ve added to my make up bag recently
I've been having a lot of trouble with spots and blemishes recently, so to give you a bit of background for the whinging I'm about to do, here’s a brief history of my skin: Before age 14; a fresh-faced, smooth-skinned child running around outside and reading Animal Ark and Jacqueline Wilson books (anyone?). Ages 14… Continue reading Trying to sort out my skin: T-Zone review
I remember using e.l.f products while I was at university, and let's be real; it's because they were cheap. When I say cheap, I mean like the same price as a VK for a mascara, so you didn't have to give up one or the other; you could have nice lashes AND get sloshed on… Continue reading Rediscovering e.l.f; Beautifully Bare concealer stick and High Definition powder
I’ve welcomed lots of lovely things into my cruelty-free collection recently. I'm sure lots of them will feature around here soon, but one in particular I've been loving so much I thought it deserved its own blog post.
Ohhh, summer. The sun is shining (sometimes, if you’re in the UK), there are BBQs and beer garden meet-ups aplenty (always, no matter what the weather, if you’re in the UK), and the sundresses are out.

Many of my findings have been bath and body, haircare or skincare, but I have made a couple of make up discoveries too. Barry M are not a new brand to me, but I’ve… Continue reading We need to talk about Barry
At the end of last year, I made a decision; 2017 would be the year I put my money where my mouth is and made the switch to cruelty-free. This is how and why I made that decision.
As I touched on in this post, I’ve been trying to buy only cruelty-free products since the beginning of 2017 (I say ‘trying’ because it’s such a minefield of a topic, but I'm pretty sure I haven't slipped up yet). There are loads of articles, blog posts and directories on the world wide web about the… Continue reading Easy and affordable cruelty-free shower swaps
I know it may seem a little excessive to write a whole post on a shampoo and conditioner, but honestly this is one of my favourite haircare discoveries of recent years so it looks like I’m doing it anyway. It’s also part of a more serious and important topic that has become part of how… Continue reading Detoxing my hair the cruelty-free way
