New Design?

Hey Guys!

You've probably noticed that I've re-designed my blog. I just didn't like the way it looked so i'm going to experiment for a bit to get it perfect. I'm definitely a perfectionist so if I don't like it I have to change it! I just wanted to let you guys know whats going on.

Have a nice day!


Blogger Recognition Award!

Hi Guys!

* These photos were all taken by Courtz! (Apart from the middle one).*

Can I just say a huge thank you to the lovely Courtz over at for nominating me! Her blog is so beautiful and she does loads of photography, so definitely check her out!

The Rules:

  1. Write a post to show your award.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Give a brief history of why you started your blog.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Nominate a maximum of fifteen people for the award.

Why I Started My Blog:

I'm actually very new to blogging so I don't have many followers yet. I was inspired by beauty/lifestyle bloggers such as Zoella, Tanya Burr and Sprinkle Of Glitter to start a blog. I love writing and beauty so where better than my very own blog to write about beauty?! But I didn't want it to just be about beauty so i'm just going to write about anything and everything! I started my blog mainly just because I absolutely love reading other blogs so I really wanted to start one of my own.

My Advice To New Bloggers:

As I said before i'm a very new blogger too, but there is a couple things I've learnt already...

1. Don't feel pressured to post all the time! Remember it's your blog so do what you want and don't be pressured by anyone or anything.

2. If you aren't passionate about it, don't write about it! Don't just write about something because its trending or because its a popular subject unless you are interested in it. If you aren't interested you won't be motivated to write about it and trust me, it will show in your posts. 


I don't really have any "blogger friends" yet so these people I nominate, I don't know. I'm hoping that by doing this I can meet some awesome knew people!

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!

Makeup Brands That Are Cruelty-Free!

Hi everyone! It's Alex and today's post will be a list of cruelty-free makeup brands! Side note: Usually when the makeup brands are cruelty-free they are vegan, but some are not.


Anastasia Beverly Hills
Barry M
Real Techniques
Too Faced
Urban Decay

NOT Vegan/Cruelty-Free:

Miss Sporty
Estée Lauder 
Bobbi Brown
Victoria's Secret (I know it's not makeup but I thought I'd add it in too)

These are only a few of the companies that test on animals. I strongly advise that you do not purchase these products as when you purchase them, you are funding the animal testing. This is a vile, disgusting thing that must stop! 

Thank you for reading and I hope you purchase some cruelty free makeup! 

Have an amazing week,
