Vegan Lifestyle Update | 4 Apps For Vegans


Guess what? I’m one of those people who are basically almost always glued to their phones. While I try to maintain a 9pm cut-off point for going on Twitter, I’m usually checking the social media apps on my phone one after the other first thing in the morning; only when my tube to work goes underground do I finally put away my phone and pull my book out.

The Ultimate Lip Prep Trio ft. LUSH And OCC


I might be enjoying the change in seasons – all those fallen leaves, scented candles and the return of my beloved blanket scarf – but my skin certainly isn’t. I feel like I need to bathe in a pool of coconut oil to continuously soak in some moisture. My face in particular has been suffering; I have dry patches on my cheeks and forehead, and my lips are chapped and sore. Gee, thanks, October.

I bloody love YouTube, don’t you? There are few ways I prefer to spend my time than settling down on the sofa with a cup of tea and a blanket pulled over my legs to catch up on my subscriptions.

October Empties ft. Barry M And Illamasqua


It’s been a while since I wrote an Empties post – 5 months in fact! I’m pretty pleased about that, in a way. I’ve been using and enjoying all of my beauty and skincare purchases and haven’t needed to stock up all that much. However, the time has come when things start to run out, and so I’ve ended up with a few empty bottles and containers which I thought I would share with you today.

5 Comebacks To Common Questions Vegans Get Asked


As much as I love being vegan, it can be frustrating at times. Decent hot breakfast options are near non-existent on the high street, milk powder is in, like, everything, and the majority of the people you love are likely still consuming animal products. Then there are all the questions – but where do you get your protein? What about the makeup you’re wearing? – and the inevitable anecdotes of doom (i.e. my friend nearly died cos she went vegan and only ate potatoes). And they say vegans can’t stop talking about being vegan? El oh el oh el.

The Sunday Roundup #1


It’s October 16th! No, I’m not misquoting Mean Girls; I am drawing attention to the fact that we’re halfway through the month, and I am halfway through Blogtober. For anyone who doesn’t know, the idea behind Blogtober is to blog every day throughout October. That’s right, folks – every day. It’s been a lot of fun so far, and has presented plenty of challenges; from running out of ideas to struggling to find time to write and take photos, it’s been a genuinely enjoyable yet testing experience.

How To Celebrate The Full Moon


At the beginning of this month, I talked about how I like to go about setting New Moon intentions. I covered what intentions actually are, and how I get myself into the frame of mind to set them, in the hopes of having a productive, successful month ahead. It only felt right, then, to also bring you in on what I’ve been doing to mark the Full Moon, which typically occurs around 2 weeks later.
