How Being Cruelty Free Can Save You Money

I recently took the decision to go cruelty free with my makeup buying, and it’s been harder than I thought.

So, I thought I would explore how going cruelty free can save you money.

WHAT IS CRUELTY FREE?

Cruelty Free means that the products have NOT been manufactured OR tested on animals.

For years I was aware of the Cruelty-Free Movement but never took the plunge till last year.

I’ve been researching more and more into Halal Cosmetics and I’ve discovered that they use no animal products in the production, but since they’re not readily available yet, I decided to go cruelty free.

How to Save Time and Money with Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime has changed my life.

No really!

For the last 4 years, I have been taking advantage of Amazon Prime and it has SAVED me so much time and money in delivery costs it’s not even funny.

When you first look at the price for an Amazon Prime membership you kind of baulk at the £79 per year, but when you break down how many times you order from Amazon and delivery price for each item, it pays for itself in my opinion.

I’ve already talked about the benefits of Amazon Prime Student with which you get a FREE 6 Month trial and costs half the price of Amazon Prime.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick and Lip Cheat | Review

Charlotte Tilbury is a name synonymous with glamour, red carpets and luxury.

Built by the makeup artist to the stars, Charlotte Tilbury, her makeup line was always going to succeed.

Armed with the knowledge to turn any woman into a screen siren, it consists of skincare and makeup that adds a touch of glamour for us mere mortals.

Charlotte Tilbury is a luxury brand but the prices for her products are affordable enough to get one or two treats.

My sister very kindly gifted me some money for my birthday last year, so I decided to buy something I had been lusting after for ages but didn’t have the finances for myself.

Here’s why you need to have at least 2 Bank Accounts as a Woman.

It started when I first signed up to Amazon in the early 2000s.

I wanted to start Internet Shopping using my pocket money, but the bank wouldn’t give me a Debit Card because I was too young (I was 18 at the time).

Me being me, I found a workaround and signed up for another Bank account and managed to get a debit card with it!

Yes, USpicy has brought out a hair straightening brush to the market that claims to straighten and dry your hair at the same time.

Inspired by the review that fellow blogger, YouTube Queen and Makeup Artist Nisha Davdra did a while ago, I was persuaded to buy it after years of struggling to dry and straighten my unruly, curly hair.

In reality, I am an introvert through and through and need alone time to recharge.
