    Etsy Digital Prints – Introducing Grafico Design!

    Hey everyone, I hope you’ve had a good weekend. It’s now June and hotter than ever! I’m finding it very enjoyable but also frustrating as it means I spend less time on my blog and also less time on another thing I want to talk about today… I don’t know why I’ve not posted about it before, but I thought I’d introduce my little Etsy shop! It’s called Grafico Design, and I sell digital prints! How did it start? First of all I want to tell you about how it started and how I decided to start an Etsy business. I don’t have a hugely exciting story, but it’s always…

    Loungewear Must-Haves for Lockdown! Ft. Femme Luxe – AD

    Hey all! How are you doing today? Hopefully less up and down than the weather is at the moment! Fortunately while I’m writing this the sun is shining ☀️ it’s a lovely May day. Am I a bit keen in saying it feels like summer has begun? Since the lockdown (and basically all the time anyway – who am I kidding?) I have been having lots of ’cosy nights in’, and it’s been amazing! They honestly are my favourite way to spend the evening, snuggled up enjoying Netflix. This leads me on to what this post is about. I was so excited to have an email from the clothing brand…

    Current Cruelty Free Skincare Routine! 🐰

    Hey! How are you? Welcome to my cruelty free skincare routine post! Some of you will already know that in the last couple of months I made the decision to go cruelty free. (If not, you might want to read my post, Why I’m now a Cruelty Free Blogger). Anyway, I don’t think I’ve actually posted my current skincare routine on here before, so what better time to do it!? When I first made the switch, and even now to be honest, I found it hard to source good value, animal friendly products. I think it’s easier with makeup; many brands are making the change, but with most skincare products…

    Peck and Plum – AD

    Hey there, Been a little while since my last post, this month has turned out to be pretty busy! It’s already mid/end of October!! Crazy stuff. I always feel like when Strictly Come Dancing starts, then that is the beginning of the end of the year. Anyone else?! Today I’m going to share with you a brand that I discovered recently through Instagram. They are called Peck and Plum and mainly sell a mixture of jewellery and home wear items. (www.peckandplumlondon.com) I wanted to reach out to them to see if they’d be interested in collaborating, as I LOVE their stuff… and they said yes! Hooray! So I am doing…

    Plastic Free! Lush Shampoo Bars

    Hey! How are you guys? Thanks for stopping by to read this latest post. For whatever reason you are here, whether it be because you are a regular or visiting for the first time, then I am personally sending you a huge welcome! I’ve been thinking a lot more about how I can change my habits in my everyday routine, and therefore, how I can do my little bit for the planet. Some of you may know that I have been switching over to cruelty free (read about my switch and about my progress!). I also want to try to do better with cutting out plastic. That’s why in this post…

    Darla, (a GORGEOUS clothing brand!) (gifted)

    Hello! How are you on this rather dreary day? It’s certainly not the summer we had last year but oh well! (We British really do always have to talk about the weather… guilty). Anyway, the lack of summer is not what I am here to discuss… What I am talking about today is a lovely clothing brand called Darla. Now let’s get this out of the way from the start, I contacted the brand and they said they would send me out an item for free if I were to do a review. I wouldn’t have sent them a message if I didn’t like their items, so that’s hopefully enough…

    Cruelty Free – Have I given in?

    Hello people! How are you all doing today? It’s finally the weekend which is fantastic. I hope you all have nice plans, whether it be doing nothing or the complete opposite! At least we now have something which vaguely resembles summer… Anyway, what I wanted to write about today is really a sort of update on how I am getting on as a cruelty free makeup user. If you haven’t already seen my first post, then you can read about my change over here: Why I’m now a cruelty free blogger. A few weeks ago, I decided enough was enough and that I would make the switch over to animal…

    Making the most of where you live

    Hey there, How are you doing today? Hope all is okay! As some of you may know, I am from England, more specifically Devon and even more specifically, from Exeter! Now for starters, if any of you also live here, please let me know, I’d love to find some other Exeter bloggers!! The reason I’m talking about where I reside, is because I wanted to do a post about making the most of where you live. This was spurred on by a recent visit to the ballet Coppélia. I saw that they had tickets for sale at the Corn Exchange in Exeter and bought some! My visit made me think,…

    Interview with Shannen Claire

    Hello people! Today I come to you with another treat – An interview with Shannen from shannenclaire.com! I’m really loving doing these interviews so far, and I was so pleased when Shannen said she would like to work together on one too! She really is one of the nicest bloggers I have come across, and I’m so glad to have found her 🙂 Do head on over to her blog after this. She has actually posted her interview with me on there if you’d like a read. So the format is that we have asked each other 6 questions. They are completely blogging related! Here are the questions I put…

    Why I’m now a ‘Cruelty Free’ blogger

    Hey everyone, how are you doing? You might have noticed if you follow me on Twitter, that I have made the decision to be a ‘cruelty free’ blogger. It’s something that has bothered me for years, but I’ve never really done anything about it. This was until I started blogging actually, but I’ll come to that in a little bit. The background You may or may not know that a lot of, if not most of the main beauty brands test on animals. This includes companies such as MAC, Rimmel, Vaseline… The list goes on. I think in the past I was sad about this, but carried on using these…
