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!

Priceline 40% off Cosmetics HAUL!

Hey guys!

On Wednesday last week, Zoe, Caitlan and I went on a bit of a Priceline Pub Crawl of sorts. As you saw last monday, I had a few things that I really wanted to pick up and I got most of the things that I wanted! I did also pick up a couple of other bits and bobs and so I wanted to talk about my day and share with you what I picked up and how much I managed to save!!

Priceline 40% off of Cosmetics Sale!

Hey guys!

It’s that time again where Priceline are having one of their famous 40% off sales! Cosmetics used to be my favourite but I think Skincare has kinda taken over a bit. I went really crazy during the skincare one! I am still holding on to a $200 gift card for this sale and I do still have quite a list of things that I want to pick up so I thought I’d still make a list and share it with you all!

For this wishlist, I’m going to talk about my old faithfuls first so that we can get them out of the way and move on to the fun new things that I want to pick up! I’ll be fairly brief about my repurchases because you’re more than likely to know my thoughts on it if I’m repurchasing it haha.
