If you’ve read my Latest Loves post from December, you know that I’ve been loving Kimberly Clark’s anti-haul videos on YouTube (what she’s not gonna buy-hiiii!). Since I’m starting a no-buy in March (more on that in an upcoming post), I thought I’d kick it off by going through some of the beauty launches that have been popping up in my inbox and Instagram feed and share why I’ll be passing on them. It can be really tempting to give into the hype of every new palette, lipstick, or [insert-anything-limited-edition-here], so sometimes it’s helpful to deconstruct that hype and realize that, no, you don’t really need another neutral blush or pretty highlighter. I’m working on being a more conscious consumer and really evaluating items before I pull the trigger. Total disclaimer – these are my personal opinions. You may be really excited about some of these new launches or have these items on your must haves list and that’s cool! I’ll just be passing them by for now.
Welcome to the first edition of a series I’m calling ‘Latest Loves’. I didn’t want to commit to a monthly favourites post, because some months I just don’t have that many exciting things to share. You’ll see these posts pop up whenever I’ve got something new to tell you about. Want to know what I’ve been into lately? Read on!
Last week I talked about how I was starting to make the transition to using only cruelty free beauty products. It’s certainly a work in progress and I’ll be sharing more about it in an upcoming post. For this week’s Friday Five, I thought I’d share some cruelty free brands (and products) that I love.
Hello dear readers. It’s been awhile. I know. I got busy. I’m sorry. I’d like to tell you it’s never going to happen again but, frankly, that would be a lie. Anywho, I realize I clickbaited you a bit with this sensational title, but I have something to say and I think it’s pretty important. It’s something that I hope you’ll share with your sisters and daughters and nieces and it’s about what it means to be (gasp) a feminist.
