It’s one year since I went vegan. In January of 2017 I gave Veganuary a go (more on that here), and having carried on with it after the month had ended and then some, my first vegan birthday has now been and gone. Vegday? Vegthday? Nope, doesn't work. It’s been a positive change for me,… Continue reading Observations from a year of Veganism
It’s nearly a year since I went cruelty-free now, and although I’ve tried loads of stuff that I’ve really liked, I haven’t become anywhere near as much of a cruelty-free make up expert as I was expecting in that time. There are quite a few things like blush, eyeshadows, bronzers, etc, that last ages, and… Continue reading Three things you should try from MUA
Can I start by saying that I don’t generally remove my shower products from the bathroom and arrange them on my bed with a carefully positioned towel (usually found slung over something), a bunch of flowers (£3.30 in the reduced section of Tesco), and, inexplicably, a chopping board (lives in the kitchen, been used to… Continue reading Winter bath and body treats
It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post, so let’s talk skincare. I’ve been dipping in and out of the Superdrug Vitamin E range for a few years now, and have always been fairly impressed with most of the things I’ve tried, but since going cruelty-free this year they’ve been one of my… Continue reading Superdrug Vitamin E skincare; what’s worth trying?
I've included Vegan in the title of this blog post because the things I eat are vegan, but just as a small reminder at the start; vegan food is just food. It's not some kind of alien space fodder that other humans can't eat, so this is still 'food in Rhodes Town', it just so happens… Continue reading Where to eat vegan in Rhodes town
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. Now those are all some of my absolute favourite things but they also bring about this situation: put dress… Continue reading Cruelty-free summer bodycare: Fair Squared review*
This year I’ve taken on something of a lifestyle change, particularly in terms of my diet, and I thought it was about time I broached the subject on Sophar So Good. For the first month of 2017 I took part in Veganuary. For those who don't know, this is where you pledge to go vegan… Continue reading Veganuary: Four months on
