THE EDIT: Why did you?

Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of Vegans of the World – a book organised by the lovely  Emily (username: vegan_emily) who I met through Instagram. Basically, people around the world answer the same set of questions that are then collated into one book. Coming from a social psychology background I love this idea – and I am excited to be a part of it. So I thought that I would share with you some of the questions and my answers

Why did you go vegan?

Choosing Happiness

01e6beda2cc3c028bbbc50f60413f4c1

I love quotes. There’s something about how the words entangle together that I find really beautiful; so raw in their simplicity with the ability to give such meaning to each person.

On my wall I have countless pictures, some of places I’ve been, places I want to go, images filled with wonder and beauty. Call it a vision board, or an inspiration board or anything you like. To me, it’s like I’ve taken my favourite parts of the thoughts that fill my mind, and put them in a place where I see them every day. Because sometimes they are overlooked, and you forget among your stressful and busy life, the beautiful wanderings of your mind that make up who you are.

THE HAUL: Lush

The other day I went on a little adventure to my favourite shop – Lush! Many of you know that I am a huge lushie. I really respect their ethos, I think their products are reasonably priced compared to a lot out there, and most importantly – the products work.

I needed to repurchase some old favourites, and I wanted to purchase some I’ve never tried before.

Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser: This was first on my list and is my favourite cleanser of all time – seriously people this product is AH-mazing. Since using Angels my skin has cleared completely and is noticeably softer and smoother. With an all natural ingredient list that includes chamomile, rose and lavender, what’s not to love? Scoop out a pea sized amount and mix it with warm water to get a paste-like consistency. As this contains ground almonds, this cleanses and exfoliates the skin. This cleanser is suited to all skin types.

THE REVIEW + SWATCH: NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow Palettes

I’ve always been a pretty big fan of NYX, and when they recently started popping up in Australian Target stores I wasted no time picking up a few eyeshadow palettes to try. To be honest, nothing can compete with my endless love affair with the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, but these shadows by NYX are a good little product for someone on a budget.

There are 22 different palettes in the Love in Rio collection, retailing at $9.95AUS – each with 3 shadows. As someone who loves a good nude (oops.. cheeky) I decided to purchase the shades Bikini Bottom and Barefoot in the Sand.

Real Women

Recently the concept of a “real woman” has been getting a lot of attention in the social media world. While society has undeniably promoted thin as an ideal in the past, more and more social media platforms like instagram, tumblr, and pintrest are being flooded with memes focused on the idea that “curvy women are real women”. While the intent may be to promote societal acceptance of a curvier physique and highlight that slim is not the only beautiful body shape, this statement is actually guilty of body shaming.

Here are some examples of the gems that have been floating around the internets recently.
