I hope your week’s going okay. Apologies for not stopping by to say hi last week. The week went in a blur. I said see you later to my friend moving back to Australia with her growing family. Her big surprise before she left! I’ll miss her. We only just met this summer, following my trend of making friends only for one of us to leave within a year. I’m happy for her, yet I know I’m going to miss her loads.
The cats have had their own personal mini dramas last week, all relating to their ongoing illnesses and I was just plain lazy. Continue reading “Late November Catch Up”
I hope you’re having a great weekend! Before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! Mine’s been unintentionally catching up on sleep in an already out of whack sleep routine, but hey, I think I’ve found a solution to bulky scarves.
I always find most scarves are too big for me making me look like either I’m wearing a neck brace Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
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.
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”
The day some of us have been waiting for is nearly here. Black Friday!
Yes, I have my eye on a couple of things I may have been stalking for the past few weeks. A little shopping list for Sephora, one to two items from Gorjana, a coat and well that’s about it. Fingers crossed they aren’t sold out (and they do have some offers) and that’s how I’m spending my extra curricular activities this Friday. Shopping!

Seeing as it’s now way past my bedtime, I’ll keep the intro short and sweet!
This week’s Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have been making me smile or caught my eye this week.
Lucky Bamboo and Zara Home Brass Vase
A few weeks ago in my local supermarket I picked up peat/compost whatever you call it to repot my plants and a lucky bamboo for no other reason than it looked nice! Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”
