    February Favourites 2019 | AD

    I haven’t been doing a favourites post every month for a while now, I did a 2018 overall favourites but I’m not tying myself to doing them religiously. However this past month I’ve had a few February favourites so I thought it might be nice to share them with you. The Worst Witch (AD- Gifted) At the start of the month myself and my friend Sally headed to the Sheffield Lyceum to catch a performance of The Worst Witch. I loved these books when I was a kid, Mildred Hubble is the worst witch that has ever attended Miss Cackles Academy for Witches. The show, particularly the staging, was so…

    Cruelty-Free, Vegan and Organic- What does it all mean?

    You might hear the words Cruelty-free, vegan and organic thrown around a lot these days but what do they actually mean? They now adorn plenty of packaging, but do we as consumers really understand the labels? Today I thought I’d unpick what it all means and how to start being more environmentally conscious when buying beauty products.  What does it all mean?  So let’s start with Cruelty-Free. This means a product has not been tested on animals during it’s production. These products are often marked with a leaping bunny symbol meaning they are accredited as 100% cruelty-free.  Next, Vegan. This means a product does not contain any animal products such…

    Green People Suncare

    We all know it’s important to stay protected from the sun and that we should wear SPF but how many of us actually do it when we aren’t on holiday? I can honestly hold my hand up and say I’ve never been one to apply an SPF as part of the skin care routine whilst in the UK, unless it’s already incorporated into my moisturiser. My other struggle is that I have found it difficult in the past, to find a cruelty-free sun care range which works for my skin. Enter Green People. When Green People got in touch I was super keen to work with them to help promote…

    Boots Has A Sweetshop You Need To Know About

    If any of you are particularly Eagle-eyed, you may have noticed that in the last few weeks something new has arrived to your local Boots store. The new look, ‘Sweetshop’ Self selection makeup stands have been launched in larger stores across the country! I checked out the new stands in the Meadowhall store recently, and I have to say I was very impressed. The stands have a clean, modern look and are all about making it easier for the customer. Each brand has it’s own module, with lighted mirrors and display panels with product details on. Not to mention an abundance of testers to try out all the new products…

    Holiday Empties

    So as you know, I like to keep track of my empties, which products I have been using up over the previous weeks/months and what I thought about them. Today I thought it might be cool to talk about just the holiday empties which I acquired. I recently went away to Lanzarote for two weeks with my family and Josh, now that’s a decent amount of time so I did expect that I would be able to finish some products up. Some are a little different to my usual choices, because no one wants to take their most expensive products away with them, in case you have to leave them…
