What's in my Pre-Wedding Bag?*

Everyone knows that when you are close to your pregnancy due date, you pack a baby bag full of the various baby-related things you need. However, I am not having a baby (yet), I am getting married around 5 hours away from my home, so yes, I have started packing my pre-wedding bag already. This is rare for me. I am last-minute-larry when it comes to packing and always have been, but recently I’ve been packing a few bits ready for the big day (or rather the weekend on which it happens!) and thought I’d share some of my faves here with you.

Cruelty Free Make-up

I'm a veggie for a whole host of different reasons, but animal welfare is a pretty huge one. So it would seem silly for me to not try to make cruelty-free choices when it comes to my makeup and beauty choices. After all, I'm against animals being bred and slaughtered for my tummy, so why would I want them to suffer for my face? 

Alternative Advent - Mad Beauty*

Don’t get me wrong, I love chocolate. The idea of a little square of chocolate every day for the whole month of December is one that brings me joy. However, recently I have been really interested by the other advent options that are out there. Any sort of surprise gift every day is a win in my eyes so I have decided to cover a few of the most popular alternative Advent calendars available this year. 

#BEDN: Beauty, or 'Where was I when everyone learnt this stuff?!'

Today’s #BEDN prompt is ‘beauty’, and my first thought was to write something cheesy about how ‘beauty is only skin deep’ or something, but I haven’t had enough wine for that! However, it did bring to mind the hoards of Zoella-esque Beauty Gurus, with their ‘on fleek’ eyebrows and ombre lips and smokey eyes, and yet as we have seen here, I haven’t got a bloody clue! Regular guest blogger Bethan is my own personal beauty guru and every time she answers my panicked texts (wtf is an eyelash primer?!) with cool calm confidence, I wonder where I was when everyone else was at 'how to be a successful woman' classes?!

#BEDN: Home Office Tour

Today's #BEDN prompt is "style". I'm currently sat here in my PJs and a giant varsity hoody from a University I didn't even go to - so safe to say that I am not the right person to talk style in regards to fashion! That said, I decided I'd do a little home office tour, as it's the only room in the house that is entirely mine, (& the kitten's too of course!) and I think it shows off my "style" the best.

Review: Lush Toothy Tabs

For a while now, I’ve toiled with the idea of LUSH’s Toothy Tabs, but I’ve always been too nervous. Having had braces (twice!) I’m pretty specific about oral hygiene. I just couldn’t believe that little round tabs could brush my teeth as well as the usual toothpaste I use. Here, I take the plunge in order to review these little tabs!

I'm practically Rapunzel!

I’ve spent the last hour desperately trying in vain (in all senses of the word) to take a picture to show you how good my hair looks right now. My camera must be faulty. But trust me when I say, it is the strongest, thickest and healthiest it has ever been. As someone who used to dye her hair more than she changed her bedding, my poor hair hasn’t been in a great condition since I was about 13. So what’s sparked this change?
