RIXO want list

Rixo are big of patterns, colour and flowy dresses. At their first ever LFW event which took place a few years ago, they showcased the best of their vintage-style-with-a-modern twist dresses and hint to a launch of accessories. No sweatshops/nasty business at Rixo. London based, designed by women for women type of brand. 🙂 These…

Green Glittery Eyes

Green eye makeup, particularly in the form of metallics and glitter, were very prevalent on the catwalk this season. To me, it’s such a fun colour and brings me so much joy. I particularly liked the metallic green looks on the Versace models. I think that people often associate cruelty free makeup with ‘green’ brands….

Whistles want list

I loved creating the last wish list so thought I’d carry on the theme ! I might as well put my internet scrolling to some use Whistles are fully embracing the leopard print at the moment, with option in dresses, tops and skirts. There are also some beautiful velvet jumpsuits and shoes. These are some…

CF at M&S

M&S Beauty had had a massive reboot over the past few years. And thank goodness, because it means that while my mum is looking at socks I can trowel through the products of some of my favourite brands. The range of brands they stock is much more preferable to a cruelty-free beauty buyer than the…

Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads, REVIEW

The brand: UK, widely avaliable. Owned by Rodial – so have similar ridiculous sounding names and irritating ‘Dragon’s Blood’ bollocks. But the Nip+Fab products are generally pretty good, and reasonable priced. The product: Glycolic acid pads Who can use it: I would say everyone, but if you know you’re skin is too sensitive to acids…

All Saints want list

All Saints seem to nail autumn and winter fashion – their coats and jackets look incredible. I can’t afford them, but I still like looking at the cuts and designs. Looks like they are fully embracing the snake skin trend. This is essential my own personal record of things I like! MARTY ROLL NECK JUMPER£108.00 …

Fragrance Series: Neroli Portifino, or Neroli

Tom Ford’s Neroli Portifino is the proper scent of summer. It’ll linger on you all day and night, it’s suitable for everyone and I adore it. The original is £135, so I buy ‘Neroli’ from the cruelty-free Eden Perfumes. It’s a carnal citrus, it smells deep and bitter. It is essentially a filthy citrus, in…

January Labs Moisture Balancing Lotion, Review

I figured that when I finish a product completely, I’ll review it. The brand: American, independent, small brand. I think this is a good thing – not tonnes of product but just a minimal line of what looks like good stuff. They are also everything ‘free’. Cruelty free, sulphate free, paraben, fragrance…. The product: Plant-based…

3 Bright Lipsticks

Lipsticks are my favourite beauty item – they genuinely bring me so much joy. A colourful lipstick can jazz up an outfit, it really is another accessory. I think it can be one of the most cost effective ways bring something new to your look. But is it worth spending £20+ on a lipstick, when…

Designer wear labels, with an ethical edge

In light of the news that Burberry have been burning their stock, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about the ethics of luxury fashion brands. It would make sense that because the clothes are so expensive, that therefore all of them must be conscious of their ethics in terms of labor and the…
