I'm Steph, I'm 26 and I currently live in Nottingham with my partner of seven years.  In the past few years alone, I've lived in two different countries, six different cities and twelve different houses.  I love all animals, but I'm particularly enthusiastic about octopuses, manta rays, moths and bees.  I've been vegan for over two years now and am a massive advocate of positive activism and intersectionality in veganism.  I can speak Japanese, albeit pretty badly through lack of recent practice.  I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was four years old, and I (currently) have three Star Wars tattoos among others.  I have the travel bug and adore visiting new places, but I'm also a home body and tend to prefer snuggling up on the sofa with a movie more than going out on a more day-to-day basis.

Here on the blog, you can expect a range of posts from cruelty free cosmetics looks and reviews to lifestyle posts about my daily life, wishlists, cooking and general interests and opinion posts.  When I go away somewhere new or to an interesting place, I always come back with plenty of photos.

Regarding cruelty free cosmetics:

I still have the odd product that is animal tested that I'm using up with no intention of repurchasing, and will always specify when a product I use in a post isn't cruelty free.  I also personally do choose to buy from brands owned by non-cruelty free parent companies, but do so on a case-by-case basis based on my own research and the child brand's reputation and relationship with animal testing.  I will always mark any products with animal testing parent companies in my posts for your reference.

I try to abstain from most animal derived ingredients in my beauty products.  I will be trying my best to include whether or not products I mention are vegan, but if I ever make a mistake please let me know!

For reference when reading product reviews:

♥ I have combination, sensitive skin.
♥ My skin tone is very fair with neutral tones.
♥ My hair is very thick, naturally curly/wavy and currently colour treated.
