Make Your Own Tea Toner with just 3 Ingredients

Beauty products can be expensive, not to mention laden with all sorts of nasty chemicals and wrapped in layers of plastic. Even if you buy natural, chemical free, zero waste products, it’s nice to be self sufficient and make your own – plus you can save loads of money. So today, I am going to…

Ethical Advent Day 12 – Heavenly Organics Skin Care

Welcome to Day 12 of my Ethical Advent Calendar, where beautiful skin care gifts will be my feature. Heavenly Organics are an absolutely beautiful brand, with an independent and loving owner, whose desire to have only organic, natural and vegan skincare led her to create her own hand-made products.¬†Everything is made with as few ingredients…

Ethical Advent Day 7 – Hand Made Gifts

Behind Window 7 of my Ethical Advent Calendar is a focus on a hand-made gift. Something you’ve put a lot of love and effort into. A gift that means more that something purchased from any shop or website. A gift for the minimalist. A gift from someone trying to be a more conscious consumer and…

Inika… Natural, Cruelty Free Lip Smacking Beauty

Lip balm is one of the most frequently applied beauty products, yet often contains a cocktail of preservatives, fragrances and all kinds of chemicals that you wouldn’t generally decide to take into your body. However, the chemicals found in lip balms (lipsticks, toothpaste and lip liners also included) have a direct path to the inside…

Clarify Your Skin Naturally with Madara

I’m a huge fan of toners – they provide a refreshing finish to your cleansing routine, and sweep off any final traces of make-up. A toner in the summer, mixed with a little water is also a wonderful way to keep fresh and cool. Getting the right toner, however, is the key to radiant skin….

Defend Your Skin from the Elements!

We’re still at the time of year where temperatures are fluctuating between hot and cold. It’s cold in the mornings and evenings, and the heating is still on in many homes and indoor areas. This constant change from hot to cold can wreak havoc on your skin – I often get dry, scaly hands at…

Love Perfume, Love Acorelle.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever thought about what goes into making the perfume you happily spritz onto your skin on a regular basis. Many perfumes contain a mix of chemicals that have been linked to hormone disruption and cancer. Many of the ingredients in perfumes can also lead to allergies, and affect those with…

Lovely Vegan Lashes, Without Breaking the Bank!

It can be hard to find a really good quality, natural and organic vegan mascara for under ¬£10 these days. I usually don’t mind – I’m very happy to pay more money for good ethics and a natural product, but I’m also equally delighted when I can get these products at the bargain price of…

Eat, Drink & Wear Chocolate!

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and a rewarding and relaxing time with family and friends. Christmas, for us, has involved lots of tasty chocolate this year. We’ve demolished a box of Booja Booja (probably the best vegan truffles in the known universe)… We’ve also been sipping on delicious mugs full of raw…
