    Ethical Gift Guide – A Special Day

    I rustled together the best of ethical gifts for your loved ones this February, whether you need something for Valentines Day or just a special occasion, I’ve tried to include something for everyone so I hope you can find something that inspires you! First off, chocolate. Who doesn’t love chocolate right? Ombar contacted me recently asking if I’d like to try their chocolate and I would be a fool to turn down an offer like that. They sent me sample bars of 4 flavours, Coconut & Vanillia, Coco Mylk, Blueberry & Acai and Rasberry & Coconut (my favourite). They are so creamy and delicious, you’d never guess they were all vegan.…

    Vegan Valentine’s Day Makeup

    So valentines day is around the corner and I decided to whip up a little vegan and cruelty free makeup look for ya! All high street and easily available which makes it even better, it’s also actually super basic and simple to do. So I always start by doing my eye makeup, I’ve recently been in love with the Soph X palette by Makeup Revolution. This pallet is only £10 and contains practically everything you need to make any and every look. IT’S PERFECT. I started by packing on a whole load of the light pink shimmer on my lid and then added a little bit of a peachy shade…

    Cosmetics – Is It Vegan?

    So I already have a blog post on how you can tell if a brand is cruelty free, but I don’t yet have one on how you can tell if your cosmetics are vegan. So here we go. Vegan cosmetics are set to be one of the biggest makeup trends of 2018. With more and more people opening their eyes to veganism, it’s no wonder that the cosmetic industry has a part to play in this. But how can you tell if your makeup is vegan? Check The Website Some brands such as ELF and B. are 100% vegan, this makes life so much easier when it comes to choosing…

    Top Vegan Perfumes

    So perfume is not something that everyone thinks of when switching to cruelty free and vegan products. Unfortunately almost all of the big, high street perfumes are tested on animals so when searching for a vegan perfume, small is best. I now have a handful of vegan perfumes and I’ve also heard of a load more I want to try so heres my run down on what I have and what I’ve heard of. Highstreet Believe it or not, there are high street vegan perfumes out there, all be it not many. LUSH – Lush are probably the first brand to spring to mind, they have a selection of solid…

    Cruelty Free & Vegan Secret Santa

    So this year the wonderful Sarah Kirby at sarahkirbyblog.com decided to run a cruelty free and vegan secret santa. I love the idea of secret santa as it takes the pressure off of buying presents because you only need to buy one and no one knows you bought it! The limit for the secret santa was £10 not including postage which I think was more than reasonable, you can get some lovely things for £10 and under. The gift I received from my secret santa was like the cutest handmade subscription box. Inside it was some chocolates, a candle, a couple of pin badges, a Lush gift card and a…

    Christmas Jumpers

    So I recently found ALL my christmas jumpers and I am loving life. I thought I’d share them with you because why not!    This isn’t so much of an obvious Christmas jumper but thats what I like about it, It’s just red yet still Christmassy! This means really I can wear it all year round. It’s not too thick either so I can layer it or just wear it with a shirt underneath, perfect.    This is your typical grandad jumper, it’s so warm and old and I thrifted it a few years ago now. It’s the dream grandad Christmas jumper. Perfectly oversized and stretch with a whole in…

    Have A Very Vegan Christmas

    So for some of you, this year might be your first vegan Christmas! This year is my second so I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite vegan foods for this Christmas. There is no reason to not enjoy delicious food this Christmas, there’s so many alternatives that you can buy and make. So even if you don’t enjoy meat substitutes, there’s still many options out there for you! The Main A lot of new vegans often worry about what they are going to eat instead of Turkey on Christmas day. I’ve gathered three options for you, two you can buy and one you can make! Tofurky – I…

    Why Your Reusable Coffee Cup Is So Important

    Every year 100 BILLION coffee cups end up in the landfill. Did you know that most coffee cups aren’t actually recyclable? The coffee cups in most high street chains actually contain 5% of something called polyurethane plastic, this plastic is there to help contain the liquid and stop it soaking into the cardboard. It’s because of this 5% that most coffee cups actually CAN’T be recycled. The little recycle symbol you might recognise on the sleeves of some of these cups is extremely misleading and caught me out for many years. It makes it seem like the cups can be put into the recycling but actually it’s ONLY the sleeve or…

    Lets Get Real

    So recently I feel like i’ve been in a bit of a rut with blogging. I evolved my blog into The Ethical Evolution because I wanted it to have a focus on living vegan and ethically, and I still do, but lately I’ve been feeling super out of touch with it. I feel like my blog is not who I am as a person, it only represents a small part of my life and my personality and I feel like my readers don’t really know who I am. My blog and its photography have become this clean, white, almost minimalist thing and that’s just not me at all. I’ve been…
