Life As A Vegetarian

In March 2016, I decided to become a vegetarian. I transitioned to pescetarianism (still eating fish but not meat) for the first 6 months, to allow my body and mind to gradually get used to a new diet before going full veggie. One day I'd love to become vegan but I'm definitely not ready yet, so I just try to reduce my dairy consumption. Despite it being a relatively new lifestyle to me, I've quickly become so passionate about it. My lovely friend Charlotte just posted a fantastic youtube video which inspired me to share my own thoughts. For more veggie meal ideas, follow my foodie Instagram.

I'll disclaim here that I recognise vegetarianism isn't a plausible option for everyone, due to a variety of issues, but I'm aiming this at the people who do have the option and are simply ignoring it.

Sleek Makeup: Lips and Highlight | Review

I'll admit, I used to avoid Sleek makeup because it was positioned in the "cheap" end of the Superdrug makeup isle. The low prices made me think the quality must be bad and I associated it with the kind of makeup we'd wear in year 8. However, since going cruelty free, my drugstore options have become more limited so I thought I'd investigate the brand. I was pleasantly surprised to find Sleek has absolutely ~glowed up~. The price points are still affordable but the packaging and quality has vastly improved recently. I picked up the 'Precious Metals' Highlighting Palette for £9.99 and a mega bargain Christmas gift set - 4 mini 'Matte Me' Liquid Lipsticks for £5!

Best of the Cruelty Free Beauty Brands

I recently decided to switch to cruelty free beauty (aka brands that do not test on animals) which unfortunately meant ditching a lot of my old favourites. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of my faves don't stab bunnies in the eye, yay. No, they're not "hippy" or "weird" brands, you can find them all on the high street and I'm sure you already love them.
