    My Cruelty-Free Skincare Routine |AD

    For the last few years I have been working hard to ensure that I have a cruelty-free skincare routine and today I’ll share my favourite products with you. Let’s be real, there are millions of skincare products out there, all promising instant results to reduce wrinkles, eradicate blemishes and give us glowy skin and they all have amazing advertising campaigns to draw us in. Have you ever stopped to think about the impact your skincare products could be having on animals? Unfortunately lots of companies still test their products on animals before they hit the shelf.

    Things To Do In Lockdown

    How’s everyone finding things? Are you struggling to find things to do in lockdown? On a scale of crawling the walls to embracing life as a recluse I’d say I sit somewhere in the middle. I’m very happy to stay indoors at the moment and have only left my house twice in eight weeks ( and no I’m not even shielding). However I am of course really missing seeing my loved ones. I’m very lucky that I can work from home, I don’t have children to homeschool and that we’ve been able to get food deliveries so I haven’t needed to venture out. Today I thought I’d share some things…

    2019 Goals

    This year rolled around pretty quickly and we’re already over a week into January, I sense another speedy year like 2018. Today I thought I would jot down my 2019 goals and aspirations for the upcoming year. I don’t like setting new years resolutions and I certainly won’t be beating myself up about not reaching certain targets. I see goal setting as more of a way to help myself check in periodically through the year. I’m going to lay out a few hopes I have for myself in the coming months, then I can look back and see if I need to refocus my attention as the months go by.…
