December January Beauty Finds

I can’t believe it’s March already, we’re transition into a new season and I’m posting about December January Beauty Finds. Our skin renews itself about every 4 weeks so if I like something I like to give it more than a month to see if it works.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have 4 requirements when it comes to skin care and cosmetics: Cruelty free and no animal testing Continue reading “December January Beauty Finds”

Weekend Friday Favourites.

I’ve signed up for my 3rd Spartan Race! I’m running the Super, 13km+ in May this year. I couldn’t decided between running both the Super and the Beast again. I opted in the end for the Super to give mojo I can run the Beast again. I’ve still to run the Sprint but I don’t think I will as I know I can do the longer distances. So I’m back in training for obstacles races not that I haven’t been since the last one. The money bars and walls I need to be more lemur.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyways a short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites.”

November December Beauty Finds

It’s only fitting as it’s nearly February for my November December Beauty Finds. My love for Korean skin care’s still going strong and the search for the ‘perfect’ cruelty free mascara continues. I feel that quest is going to be a long one. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a few requirements when it comes to all things beauty. Being a vegan makes life a little more interesting Continue reading “November December Beauty Finds”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Spartan Race comes to Barcelona in May and October this year and I can’t decide if I want to rerun the Super and Beast. I really want to run more Spartans, yet the subscriptions aren’t cheap and after running the course twice in 2 years, I want to run more Spartans or obstacle races in different locations. Although it’s held in Les Comes a fantastic place to run them with the route different for both races, the element of running them elsewhere’s appealing. I have a little time to decide. My plan was the Super, 13km in May and the Beast 21k in October. I’ve still to run the 5km Sprint, but after the longer runs, I kinda don’t want to run it as unless you’re in the first few waves, you get stuck in traffic.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Anyways, I hope you’re having a great weekend and I’ll leave ya with Weekend Friday Favourites Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

October November Beauty Finds

I received some great news yesterday. As many of you know long before I became a vegan I’ve always opted for cruelty free beauty products. No animal testing please. Thanks to Leaping Bunny and PETA I’ve managed to stick to this. (Thankful too that my beloved Korean products also don’t!). For a long time it was down to the company’s ethics if they tested or not. A few years ago the EU banned all cosmetic animal testing with various organisations putting pressure on other countries to follow. So many brands I’ve avoid mainly due to China. I found out a few years ago while some companies say they don’t test on animals, if they sell physically in stores in China that means the products have been subjected to 3rd party animal testing as required by Chinese law, for all imported cosmetics. China did ban a few years ago animal testing on domestic products but imported products were still required to be tested. This meant I’ve left a lot of products on the shelf. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Care2 announced yesterday that China will soon allow importation of non animal tested cosmetics!. Which is fantastic news, if and when it happens! Continue reading “October November Beauty Finds”
