Valentine's Day Gift Ideas | Vegan & Cruelty Free



It's only just around the corner and whilst the idea of Valentine's really simply means a bottle of wine and a home-cooked pasta dish for me and my guy, there's a lot more to it for the other lovers out there. I've rounded together an edit of gifts to give, from boxes of chocs and rose scented candles, to bath time treats and flirty fragrances, all of which just so happen to be cruelty free and vegan friendly. So, whether it's a gift-to-self excuse this time around or you're looking for a little something special for that special someone, here's what I lovingly recommend wrapping up...

New Year Beauty Haul with MyBeautyMatches



If there's any time to use the excuse for a makeup bag revamp, it has to be January - 'New Year, New You' and all that. To beat the blues, I've refreshed my pouch with a few product essentials and I did so through MyBeautyMatches.com, a personalised service for all your beauty shopping needs. Think of it as a health and beauty version of SkyScanner - based on your personal profile, it scans and searches for the products best suited to you at the best deal for you...

Vegan & Cruelty Free Gift Sets from Lani



If your present ideas have come to a bit of a halt on what to purchase for a beauty-loving vegan friend or family member this Christmas, Lani could just have the gift to tick off your list. With an entire range of skin, hair and body beauty bits made from all natural, tropical ingredients which are too cruelty free and 100% vegan, there's a little something for everyone - but their range of three gift boxes have it all and what's more, Lani will be donating to a selection of animal charities with each sale, something which I think makes this Christmas gift even more special...

It's back! Charlotte Tilbury's Instant Look in a Palette


Rarely will a limited edition Charlotte Tilbury launch slip through my fingers but this was one that I just couldn't grasp before it was long gone. The Instant Look in a Palette launched early this year but sold out before I was able to get my paws on one (it's currently out of stock, but you can browse through the full range of available products from Charlotte Tilbury here in the meantime). Months on and due to its speedy sell-out, it's safe to say it was a good day when an email landed in my inbox notifying me its back in stock and this time it's here to stay complete with a travel-friendly Legendary Lashes mascara in tow...

Illamasqua gets PETA Certified & My #BeautyNotBrutality Look



With so much negative news to come from cosmetic industry in regards to animal testing, it's always refreshing to hear something that's good and one British beauty brand in particular has recently had every reason to celebrate an achievement of their own complete with flutes of vegan champagne. Illamasqua are famous for their incredible pigmentation, in-your-face shades and is a brand that's just something a little different to what your regular cosmetic line has to offer, but in recent weeks their PETA accreditation has understandably been the main talking point within the cruelty-free beauty world and I can't think of many others who deserve such recognition...
