    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…

    Summer Favourites

    I haven’t done a proper monthly favourites for a long time, so I thought it might be nice to bundle them all together in a summer favourites post instead. The Leadmill Comedy Club* Last month, myself and Josh headed to The Leadmill- my favourite events venue in Sheffield, for their monthly Comedy Club. We saw 3 top class comedians who had us both in stitches. They covered everything from life as a Dad, to chatting up the audience using songs. We were picked on for being on the front row by the ruthless compere, but it’s all a bit of fun. Who doesn’t want interrogating about their sex life in front…

    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…

    April Favourites

    Shock horror, another month has passed us by. I feel like the nearer I get to finishing my degree, the quicker time moves. It’s like the more I want to stay at Uni, the more time rushes towards exams, the final month and moving home. So April has been a funny old month, I started it abroad soaking up the sun, returned to some snow and finally handed in my dissertation which has been consuming my life for the past year. So despite April being manic and busy for me, I have managed to acquire a few favourites to share with you. My first favourite from April was getting to…
