Ethical Advent Day 3 – Christmas Cards

Welcome to Day 3 of my Ethical Advent Calendar. Today is all about Christmas Cards. Whilst sending an e-card is an environmentally friendly option for many, sometimes you still need to send a real card to a friend or loved one to show you are thinking of them. So why not send a card that…

Living Nature… Mineral Powder Perfection

I love mineral foundation. Mostly because it’s a natural product, without a tonne of chemicals thrown in, but also because it gives a great coverage and a very fresh and natural look. For every day make-up, I prefer to look as though I’m not caked in the stuff! My only problem with mineral make-up is…

Inika… Natural, Cruelty Free Lip Smacking Beauty

Random Food… Accidentally Vegan Foods & Animal Testing. Beware!

Great People, Great Animals!

The Great British Farm Project describe themselves as ‘ a small farm with big ideas’, and boy do they have some fantastic ideas! They’re working with admirable dedication to help the animals of Britain.. rescuing from certain death and cruel slaughter, and operating a no-slaughter policy on their farm. They are raising awareness, teaching children…
