Transitioning into a cruelty free lifestyle can be a long process. Especially when you’re someone who has plenty of previously bought make-up, beauty, and skin care products by brands that do test. Throwing everything away and starting from scratch can be wasteful and expensive so there is nothing wrong with using up these products first. When buying cruelty free it can be difficult as some sources of information about cruelty free brands are unreliable. A brand that is definitely cruelty free and Vegan is Lush. I spoke about them in… View Post

Whilst having the usual morning scroll through social media accounts, Instagram and Twitter to be more precise, it’s not uncommon to fall across one of those “How I think I look VS How I really look” pictures. They’re used so innocently to create light humour or as a way to be relatable to many girls, but no one really mentions how many misconceptions you face due to actually having a “Resting Bitch Face.” It can cause minor problems in real day to day life whether you’re walking past people on… View Post

 When it comes to FAD diets the first step you are often told to take is to remove all of the temptation from your surroundings. So in other words, bin all of the crap. It’s as if the steps to become “skinny” are the same as overcoming an addiction to smoking or even alcohol. Maybe the assumption that people are addicted to refined sugar is correct; do we really know what is on our food? In today’s society we are coined to believe that “all sugar is bad” for us… View Post

Photography was something that I never expected to enjoy. I somehow fell into it at 16 when I picked it on a whim for an A-level. So during September of 2012 as I stepped through the doors into this new journey I didn’t have the faintest idea what I was in for. Well, not a great deal actually. It was a lot of experimentation that I didn’t appreciate at the time. We use photography in everyday life without even realising it. Just by getting our phones out to take a… View Post

University is always at hot topic when at College because it’s the next step that majority of people choose to take. It crops up into conversation when surrounded by a group of friends discussing the hopeful possibilities of the future. Along with this arises a certain subject; “Should I go to University single?” Close friends and family may discourage a University relationship as it often means long distance. With long distance relationships come complications or a high possibility of heartbreak which would be made harder whilst being away from home.… View Post

There is a funny feeling that comes with turning 20. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m kind of an adult now or just because the long stretch of teenage years are behind me. Growing up I thought that everyone had their lives together by the time they were 20 because to a 13 year old 20 seems so old!! I can tell you that I definitely don’t have everything figured out but after reflecting on my ‘teens’ I realised that there is a lot I’ve learnt, and I want share… View Post

It is very easy to find out any kind of information that we need these days. Just a few clicks into our good friend Google and hey presto! But after many hours of online researching and rapid blog reading, I realised that although the subject of testing on animals might be easy to find out about, it is quite hard to find which products aren’t tested on animals, and which are vegan. This is within the UK especially. Admittedly, I might be looking in the wrong places. But with all… View Post
