Welcome to a long over due Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently.
Excuses as to why I’ve been absent lately I’m blaming here on Mercury being in retrograde. That’s my excuse! Anyway I hope you’re having a great weekend and lets get into this week’s hopefully short and sweet Weekend Friday Favourites
Jata Hogar Mini Manual Chopper
Out shopping with ChefPaulGuru aka P a few months back he got all excited coming across this mini manual chopper. My face was probably really, you excited over this?! Before he was here for a few months I started making smashed chickpea and avocado salads. He said this would be perfect for chopping them up. It wasn’t that expensive, about €10 and knowing unless I had examples made I probably wouldn’t use it, made a few salads with it. It really is easy to use and I use it about Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
Intermittent Weekend Friday Favourites is back! Consistent posting just isn’t happening at the moment. I’ve upped my climbing classes until June, however I’m spending as many five minutes as I can writing posts. I read a great quote in Instyle USA Magazine earlier this year from Li Bingbing. A Chinese proverb goes a little like this: Time is like water in a sponge. You can always find time if you squeeze hard enough.
Warm May temps have been moody chill May temps.
Anyway, I hope you’re having a fun weekend and I’ll leave ya with Weekend Friday Favourites. Things that have made me smile or caught my eye recently.

This edition of Beauty Finds features oil cleansers, a toner and a sheet mask. As usual all products are cruelty free! It’s also the edition where I learnt a lesson reading ingredient lists.
When it comes to Beauty Finds I have a few requirements. Cruelty free, contain no animal ingredients (honey I’m okay with. I’m a bad vegan I eat honey but draw the line at bee venom, snail slime), contain no petroleum derived ingredients if I can help it. I’m okay with maybe 4th or 5th generation derived. This also covers silcone, PEGS. I also try to avoid SLS, parabens and other nasties if I can. With skincare it’s little easier to find more natural ingredients however make up I usually have Continue reading “Beauty Finds. Skincare Empties”
Beauty Finds is back! With the last of lots product reviews. I took the photos and started writing this last year. Since a lot of products bottles are long gone to reshoot in a fewer product review. Anyways, onto the beauty…
I always have an inner battle trying new beauty brands. A feeling of disloyal to products I love, still wanting to use them while incorporating new products. Sometimes a girl has to admit true and tested are products are the way or admit the new kids on the block have won her over. Continue reading “Autumn 2018 Beauty Finds”
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.
I ignored the alarm bells of hygienie, the overpowering perfume wafting everywhere and ended up being swayed by the bright colours and boredom. I was looking for a new face exfoliator and am always on the look out for non palm oil body soaps to try. The first display I saw as I walked in was Continue reading “My First and Probably My Last Time Shopping At Lush”
