Body Shop Loves!

Last year I bought some really good moisturiser from The Body Shop after not buying anything from them since I was a teen... I know *gasp* What?! I guess I just forgot what the hype was about their stuff; I know they don't test on animals and a lot of their stuff is vegan (I'm … Continue reading Body Shop Loves!

Wow, what's this? Another post about me going out and doing stuff? I'm starting to worry about my reputation as a recluse! The Foodies Festival is an event of food, drink and 'wellbeing'.

Vegan Mushroom Risotto / Recipe

I've been getting really good at risotto recently. It's always something I struggled with, despite being a decent cook, because I didn't have the patience to wait for the rice to soften but now I'm nailing it every time.

4 pitfalls of being vegan

When I became a vegan I wondered whether I would shed a few lbs because I was cutting out cheese and milk. The thing I realized quickly was that even before I had turned into a vegan monster I had already mostly cut those food groups out of my life anyway so it wasn’t that … Continue reading 4 pitfalls of being vegan

I figured that was a good enough amount of items to do a little review of the cruelty free make up brand. I have been on the look out for replacement make up … Continue reading E.L.F products // review

Cruelty Free Beauty/Make Up

I'm still on my quest to CF my makeup bag and life, in general. It's not like going vegan [where you can do it in a day], it takes time to learn about products and companies, which I'm sure you'll know all about if you've ever done it. I have a few items I've been … Continue reading Cruelty Free Beauty/Make Up

Manic panic / mermaid dye & review

I was lucky enough to receive a goody bag from the lovely folk at Manic Panic (UK) - I'm not going to lie... I asked for some hair dye to try and tell you about.  Manic Panic are cruelty free and have so many good products it was hard to choose what to ask for. … Continue reading Manic panic / mermaid dye & review

Being Vegan…

  Although it's early days I thought I'd do a little blog post about a recent but long time coming change in my life... I went fully vegan on your ass. Or really my ass. Ok, let's stop talking about asses for once, guys! If you read THIS POST about my makeup bag and being cruelty free you might … Continue reading Being Vegan…

Is my makeup bag cruelty free?

As a vegetarian and a general animal lover I often worry about the cruelty free aspect of the products I use. Whilst I'm a terrible vegetarian [I eat fish and also own *some* leather products] I still want to be conscious about the decisions I make about the products I use daily. I recently watched … Continue reading Is my makeup bag cruelty free?
