THE £1 EYEBROW PENCIL


I recently found out that Rimmel London's cosmetics are tested on animals. This saddened me greatly and resulted in my pledge to no longer buy from their brand. My most used products of theirs was the Professional Eyebrow Pencil. I really liked this product and it complimented my colouring quite well. However, I can no longer justify purchasing a product when I know the money is going to a company that harm animals.

This situation led to an exploit of browsing make-up isles and drawing many brown lines on my hands. Whilst I was perusing the drugstore shelves I came across MUA's Eyebrow Pencil. I was amazed to find that it only cost £1. For this price, and since MUA are cruelty-free, I decided to give it a try.

HOW I STUDY AT HOME - EXAMS, GCSES AND MORE

Exactly Abby

Alongside the many other questions I receive as a Home-schooled Teenager, a regular is; 'How does it work?".

Although it's nothing extraordinary for me, the concept of home-schooling is baffling for a lot of people. The confusion as to how home-schoolers receive any qualifications is common. In this post I explain how I do my schooling at home and how it applies to real world life.

MY MINIMALISTIC SHOWER ROUTINE 2018


I'm not one of those girls who owns a gallon of beauty products. This is partly to do with my slightly-minimalist nature and also the fact that many products harm my sensitive skin. I definitely don't have a bathroom full of expensive and luxury items, and my shower isn't full of de-tangling shampoos and fragrance-bursting shower scrubs. However, I do love having a shower. I usually take my shower in the evening after a day of studying and it really helps me loosen-up and relax. In general I like to use chemical-free, environmentally friendly products and I don't skimp on this in the bathroom. This is great to read if you're looking to change your shower routine up for a more simple or ethical one.

WHY MAKEUP FREE IS THE WAY TO BE

Me and no make-up!


It's becoming a cliche topic these days to write about how young people shouldn't conform to society and make themselves something they're not. An issue that often crops up when encountering this topic is beauty. Many journalists, writers and bloggers choose to talk about how the media makes teenagers feel vulnerable to the Western World's current perception of how they should look and whether they are pretty enough. I agree on these topics and I do not think any one needs inch-long lashes or perfect skin to look beautiful. I'm not normally one to talk about the topics that everyone else is already on to, and instead like to provide my own original content for you to read. However, last week I tried an experiment and thought I'd explain what effect wearing make-up has on me.
