Mini Sephora Haul

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to share my most recent Sephora haul with you! I feel like all of my Sephora hauls are going to be mini because everything I want is either sold out or I just can’t justify spending the money haha. Nevertheless, I saw Sephora was still having their 30% off sale so I scooped up a few things that I’d had my eye on! I hope that you enjoy!

Project Pan Finale!

Hey guys!

We are FINALLY at the end of my first ever Project Pan! It’s been a long couple of months and I’ve learnt a heck of a lot from it, but I’ll talk about that a bit later. I know it’s only been two week’s since the last update but in this post, I’m going to show you a comparison of what my products looked like at the start of the project and then at the end of the project, to see just how far I’ve come! I hope that you enjoy!

Project Pan Update 1#

Hey guys!

Today I’ll be sharing my first project pan update! I made a lot of progress on a few items but for the most part, it looks like nothing really changed, which is a bit discouraging but I didn’t expect to see a lot of change after the first month. I’ll be showing my original pictures on the left and the update pictures on the right! I hope that you enjoy!

Project Pan!

Hey guys!

As I said in my last post, I’m looking to downsize my collection and work through my non-cruelty-free items. While I’ve been on my cruelty-free journey, I’ve stopped buying so much makeup because I’m overwhelmed by what I have and cruelty-free stuff is just less readily available, honestly. I’ve been watching a lot of project pan, declutter and minimalism videos so I’ve been really inspired to go through my makeup, get rid of what I don’t like and use up what I need to use up before it goes bad. I’ve decided that I’m going to do my first project pan and this is going to be the introduction post where I show you the products and why I want to work through them!

Journey to Cruelty Free #1

Hey guys!

So, since becoming vegetarian, I really wanted to think about the makeup and skincare that I was using. I know that being a vegetarian doesn’t eliminate all of the cruelty involved in my eating habits but in the effort to minimise the hurt that I’m creating, I wanted to try to start using majority cruelty free products. I’m not doing this to make myself better than anyone else. This is just a personal preference that I believe aligns with my personal beliefs.

I plan on making this a sort of series where I update you all on my progress and my planning. In this post, I am going to identify what brands in my collection are cruelty free and to what degree they are cruelty free (brand doesn’t test/sell in China, parent company doesn’t sell in China, vegan). A lot of brands don’t test but their parent company sells to countries (China) where it is law to test on animals, so you’re still more or less buying into cruelty. I hope that this is helpful, I am only including brands that I personally use so this isn’t everything that is cruelty free by any means. This is already going to be the longest post ever haha. I hope that you enjoy the post!
