January Favourites

Hey guys!

One month of 2017 down and that means that there’s only 10.5 months until Christmas! Some of my resolutions this year included being more social and really trying to enjoy life more and stop thinking about negativity and I do think that for the most part, I’ve been really achieving those goals! This month I started a new line of personal study that I’m really excited about, and I’m sure it’ll trickle into this blog at certain times. Anyway, today I want to share my favourites for the month of January. I hope that you enjoy!

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!
