Six beauty items that aren’t very friendly

Here is a list of regular beauty items that surprisingly contain animal products..

1. Candles- So they aren’t apart of a beauty routine, but most of us girls use them and they just smell oh so good! Unfortunately, some contain beeswax or honey for scent, you can find vegan candles here. If you’re wondering why bee products are so bad, I have finally found out why here; no more Burt’s Bees products for me.

2. Toothpaste- They usually contain dairy products and I know for a fact that in the USA Colgate test on animals. I found a nice blog that listed their favorite vegan and all around healthier toothpaste here.

3. Deodorant- Even this isn’t vegan, but if you’re a healthy vegan you shouldn’t have body odor anyways, I rarely even wear deodorant anymore; find out why here. Ban is accidentally vegan, and I use Kiss my Face deodorant. Crystal Body Deodorant Stick, Natural Grooming by Herban Cowboy Men’s Natural Deodorant, andJason’s Natural Cosmetics Deodorant Stick are supposed to be really great.

4. Shoes- I am always careful about this, it is so easy to forget to check what they are made of in the excitement of finding uber cute shoes. This is my favorite website for vegan shoes.

5. Vitamins- Do you know where those vitamins that are so great for your hair, skin, and nails are derived from? Check the labeling on the bottles, if they are vegan they should have a vegan symbol or say “suitable for vegetarians and vegans”.

6. Makeup- Of course I couldn’t forget this! I found a blog with a bunch of vegan friendly makeup links, you can see it here. I’m not totally sure but I think that all or at least some of Tarte’s cosmetics are vegan. Just so everyone knows, I was mistaken, I though ELF was vegan but it is only cruelty free, sadly.

I hope this helps you friendly girls make ‘pretty’ wise decisions!

Fall Haul

Here are my Fall/Winter back-to-school clothes! This isn’t all of it, so there will be a later post when my shopping is completely finished. I hope this will give you some great ideas for the colder seasons! All of the clothing is from Ross and Marshal’s.

Image

I love these shoes because they have all the colors that are in this season; Mustard, burgundy, and dark browns. The shiny faux leather bow is also very cute for next season; shiny leather was seen all over the run ways!

Image

After spending spring and summer in entirely non cushioned flats, these shoes are a gift from heaven! They are the most comfortable thing I have ever set my foot into. The bright, vivid blue color and the teeny tiny heel is so in next season!

Image

Lace, lace, lace; I just can’t get enough of it! This is a long sleeved, winter white shirt that can make a simple outfit very cute!

Image

I know that in my last post I said I would not buy cardigans that don’t actually keep me warm, but this is an exception because my boyfriend took me shopping and he wasn’t going to go back to the store to buy it some other time, so I thought “why not?”. Now I have a cute little cardigan to spice up any outfit!

Image

I love the back of this shirt, it is just too cute! Sheer material and lace together make the perfect match! I think the only downside to all of this see through material is that I will have to buy a ton of undershirts!

Image

This is the last lacy shirt, for now at least! Black, button down, and a high-low hemline; it doesn’t get any better than this.

Image

So here are two of my high-low button down shirts in winter white, and coral!

Image

Ahhhh, simplicity. I love this navy blue striped shirt, so cute.

Image

I love this sparkly crop top. The material is so soft and I think it will keep me warm and cozy during the cold months.

So that is it for now! Of course, these aren’t the only things that are ‘in’ this season, you can find out more here.

Pretty!
