Vegan Dilemmas // Winter Boots

Vegan Dilemmas // Winter Boots

Winter’s are tough. Even by urban standards, there’s rain, rain and more rain to contend with, normally on a daily basis as well as the odd bit of snow. It’s cold, you want to wear as many pairs of socks as is possible to stop […]

What’s in your make-up?

What’s in your make-up?

The funny thing about writing blog posts is that they rarely turn out how you planned. From the initial concept, to creating it and then typing it up, all sorts of things can happen that will change the outcome. When I first thought about setting […]
