hello + update

A Picture From My Bristol Trip 
Hi guys

I hope you guys are keeping well. You may or may not have noticed that we've been lacking on the blog post front recently.

Sometimes a full time job, life and sickness can get in the way of writing posts. I unfortunately have the flu and am sniffling my way through typing this post.

The frequent readers amongst you may know that we are transitioning to cruelty free/veggie/natural cosmetics.

It has been a month and half since we made this decision but I still feel as inspired as ever and become more and more inspired everyday to make this transition through watching/reading some amazing cruelty-free/veggie/natural beauty YouTube videos/blogs.

I am more than 100% happy with my decision. The only thing that makes me inpatient is having to use up all the products I have, sometimes I just feel like throwing everything in the trash and starting afresh. For now I am restraining myself and just working at using up my products.

So far the area that I am completely cruelty free/veggie/natural is deodorant! This may sound totally ridiculous to you but this makes me want to jump for joy. I know that this transition is going to take some time and so you have take the small achievements.

I have discovered a few great websites that have been aiding me along my journey, which I wanted to share with you guys.

The first one being the Environmental Working Group Website. This website offers a skin deep guide to cosmetics, a resource which is truly invaluable. You are able to search products to find their hazard rating. Furthermore they offer a function to input ingredients from any cosmetics not listed and they will create a hazard report for you based on the ingredients.

Another useful resource is the 100 cosmetic ingredients to avoid free download from The Green Beauty Guide Blog. There are also some great posts to read to.

As always the BUAV and PETA sites are a handy resource.

Feel free to share any other helpful websites so that we can all learn and benefit in the comments :)

I'll leave you with a quote:

  2. Good luck with going cruelty free, I also blog cruelty free only and the journey is 100 % worth it!!! Have a fab day xoxo


  3. I totally know what you mean! I was also considering just throwing all my old beauty junk away and start from scratch with cruelty-free stuff, but then I realised that it would be stupid. I mean I already bought it and throwing it away won't save any animals, that'll just be waste and not good for the enviroment. But I am as excited as you to become cruelty free - the sooner the better! :)
