Vegan Skincare | My Morning Routine ft. Tropic Skin Care

I take an unreasonably long time to get ready in the mornings. When I tell people I set my alarm for 6.15am and don’t leave the house until just after 8am, they are usually shocked and confused at how it could take so much time to get fed and watered before hitting the road. I do envy those of you who can be up and out within half an hour, but I don’t think it’ll ever be me.

Vegan Beauty | OCC Lip Tars! Swatches And First Impressions

occtitle

Without getting too deep into things, there is a certain popular liquid lipstick brand whose products we all adore, but whose creator is regrettably a problematic mess, riddled with controversies that won’t just conveniently disappear. Being devoted consumers of cruelty-free cosmetics,  we are no strangers to adapting in the cruelty-free community, and in this spirit I’d like to showcase one of my favourite alternative brands, who have a clean bill of health when it comes to their ethics – OCC.

Vegan Eats | What I Eat In A Day

wieiad-title

Aside from beauty blogs and makeup tutorials, my favourite content to read and watch are meal prep and “What I Eat In A Day” posts and videos. I love seeing how people put together delicious plant-based recipes, whether it’s a slap-up dinner or a simple breakfast made up out of everyday ingredients. With that in mind, I thought I’d document what I eat in a day – all vegan and from easily available foods – and put together this post from a recent weekday spent working from home. Bon appétit!

August | Monthly Intentions

I feel like I always start these posts with a critique of the weather. It’s cliched, but with reason; it’s hard not to discuss it when everyone else is, and when the summer is turning out to be such a let down. I have, however, been trying to just accept the weather for what it is, come rain or shine (or wind, or hail, etc.).

Vegan Beauty | Cruelty-free Summer Essentials ft. Pacifica and Tropic Skin Care

summer beauty title edited

Foundation and heat rarely mix: this is something I’m sure many of us have learned the hard way, myself included. Even if I’m lucky enough to have the company of my foundation all day, it’s far from a pleasant experience – it goes all melty and gross and just generally looks like a mess. Ultimately, applying foundation when it’s very hot doesn’t appeal to me much at all, so I tend to either go without a base or use something lighter instead.

After running out of toner a few months ago, I decided it was high time I purchased a new one. I had been using Liz Earle’s Instant Boost Skin Tonic, and then switched to Witch Hazel, but White Rabbit Skincare had been on my radar for a while, and it seemed like a great time to try some of their products.

Vegan Lifestyle Update | Tips For Being Vegan Abroad

Since going vegan around a year ago, I’ve had more fun with food than I’d ever had before. I’ve discovered amazing new ingredients and my appreciation for the simple but delicious wonders of plant-based eating (peanut butter, you own my heart) has grown significantly. However, as anyone with special dietary requirements will know, it is not always easy to find food that suits your needs, especially when away from home.
