    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…

    (Gifted) Lighthouse Clothing Company Review

    Hello, how are you? 🙂 I do hope you’re enjoying the start to autumn as much as me! Did you see my last post with my autumnal fashion picks? Well today I have another autumn fashion post, this is a review of/introduction to the clothing brand Lighthouse! You may have heard of them before, their designs are practical yet very stylish, which is the perfect combo! In their own words, they say they “create well crafted clothing for daily life, everyday adventures and for those who find joy in beautiful places, whatever the weather”. How lovely! I’m finding more and more as I grow older, (warning, old lady comment coming),…

    Autumn fashion 2019 (my top picks!) 🍂

    Hey there 🙂 Thanks for joining! Can you believe it is September already!? I could be imagining it, but I’m sure I’ve already started to feel that cold nip to the air in the mornings. As usual, I don’t feel like the weather was very summery, but we did have a few nice weeks. What did you get up to? I’d love to hear if you did anything interesting! As the nights draw in, and we get back into non-summery routines, I wanted to start thinking about autumn fashion. Now, if you know me, you’ll know I love autumn/winter style the best. Actually, to be honest… I just love autumn…

    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…

    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…
