My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush

Being vegan you’d probably think that Lush and The Body Shop are 2 places I shop at for things beauty related. They’re cruelty free, campaign for countries to ban animal testing and promote the use of natural ingredients. Those aspects I like. The actual products I don’t like so much. Both brands contain some not so great ingredients. Both I feel are overpriced for what they are. Lush, I’ve never really liked even way back in London though I like their stance on not using synthetic to no preservatives, supporting local community from who they purchase ingredients and helping environmental organisations. Both however I feel are more hype than they are about the actual products. However I was bored last month and popped into Lush.

No crap ingredients like SLS, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil aka petroleum Continue reading “November December 2017 Beauty Finds”

I’ve been using Oway shampoos as recommended by my hairdresser to help my fine hair back to healthy. Oway products are natural which means they don’t contain foamy properties most shampoos with SLSs have. Continue reading “How Do You Shampoo?”

Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having you had a great weekend! I’ll keep the chit chat short and sweet as I did the classic, 10min shut eye thinking about editing and fell asleep last night instead. So I’m dropping by with last weeks, Weekend Friday Favourites on a Monday. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye the past few weeks as I missed last weeks WFF.

BABY MEERKATS

I can’t handle the cuteness right now. Barcelona Zoo has baby meerkats! When I first saw them 2 weeks ago they were teenie tiny. 

2 weeks Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
