cruelty-free k-beauty

If you been a reader of my blog for a while now you'll recognise my support for cruelty-free makeup and skincare as well as my interest in Korean beauty. And with those in mind, this post came about.

I know it can be difficult to find out whether a foreign brand is cruelty-free or not since, as much as I would love to be, I'm not an expert in every language. So I thought it might be of help to compose a list of brands for everyone. I hope it will be of use to some of you!

Well, October, it's been fun [and stressful] but I think it's time to part ways for another year. So hello November, I hope we'll have as much fun as October was.

And with another month, you know what that means. It's time for another look inside my bullet journal to see how I've set it out to tackle November.

dear klairs soft airy uv essence

What is the one thing we have the tendency to miss out from out of our skincare routines?

I don't know if it's just me or not but one thing that I never give its own step is UV protection. Don't get me wrong I like to include it in other products but I've never specifically gone out a purchased a product for the purpose of protecting my skin from the sun.

Here we are, once again, at the start of a new month. A new month for new adventures but one thing that just doesn't change is the constant blogger comment on how fast the last month has gone. At the beginning of the month it didn't feel that fast, while I sat at home preparing to be back at university, but now two weeks into this academic year and can say that the end of September has flown by.

Anyway since you all seem to really enjoy these posts, here we have it my bullet journal spread for October.

As I'm sat here now it's been one whole week since I moved back into halls for my second year of university. After a hectic week of starting lectures and being constantly anxious about going to make food since I didn't know any of my new flatmates, I'm here to give you the second edition to my university room tours.

student bullet journal

For you bullet journal lovers out there it's your lucky month, being that I've got two bullet journal spread blog posts for you all.

I have this feeling that this might be a little late for those of you who have started back at school already, or have been prepared for the coming term and already set it up. But for those of you who haven't or those who've read this when planning for term two then I hope you can all find some inspiration.

It's another month, and that means it is time for another bullet journal spread!

This month is the month to get all set up for going back to university. So there are bits and pieces for that mixed in with September's spread. I will also be putting up a student bullet journal spread in a couple weeks for the pages dedicated just for university.

The first week of unversity was probably one of the toughest weeks I've ever gone through in my life. Far less of a structured schdual than college or school. Knowing practically noone on campus. And not having the warmth and familiarity of home to go back to every day. All these things made the first week, Fresher's Week, one of the most daunting times during my first year at university. So for todays post, with the help of some of my friends, I've gathered a list of trips and tricks to help you survive freshers week.

university checklist

As much as we don't want to think about it, it's that back-to-school season once again. And this year I want to try writing more posts inclined at those going to or back to university this year. So if there is anything you would like to see just let me know; I plan a few days to a week in advance so there's still time.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to be starting all these types of posts with questioning how quick the last month has flown by. But seriously it's gone way to fast that I feel like I've accomplished nothing during July, so let's hope more happens during August because there is so much I want to do before going back to university in Septemeber.

cruelty free skincare


I've mentioned a couple of times this year already that I have been trying to go cruelty free with my makeup and skincare, so when the people at Green People offered to send me some of their Organic Young range to try out I jumped at the chance to be able to try out some different skincare which has also been a goal to do this year to try and find something that works amazing on my skin and deal with how complicated it can be to look after.

If you follow me on twitter you'd know the other week I asked for inspiration for starting a bullet journal, and you didn't fail me!

I've been wanting to start a bullet journal for years but never did for multiple reasons such as the actual journal being way too expensive for my liking. But when I found this one for under three pounds I thought why not. If I don't keep it up that I haven't wasted too much and if I do keep it going well I can then invest more into it in the future.

One year down, three more to go!

In honesty, I can't quite believe how quickly this last year has gone. It's turning out to be quite true what adults told us when we were younger about time passing by far more quickly as the years went on. I look back at myself this time last year and it doesn't seem like that long ago. It doesn't feel like I've had enough time to grow and change. But looking back on this past year I'm somewhat proud of where I am now.
