Cruelty Free Beauty

Cruelty Free Beauty
Hi Bunnies!

Over the time that i have been on YouTube i have made small improvements to myself and my channel which has lead to increased confidence and creativity.

Small steps lead to big changes and every few months i ask myself the question of who i want to be in the future.

Who do you want to be?

The answer is i want to go for the cruelty free beauty option. I want to be more aware of what i buy.

This all started when i was internet browsing at 2am a few nights ago (in typical Hayley fashion!)

I came across a Pinterest post about which beauty brands still currently test on animals. I was shocked and disgusted that most of these brands were still in my make up drawers.
Me and Magic. November 2014
I have a rabbit called Magic. If you have been following me since the beginning then you will know that she is my pride and joy. She has been the main reason why i have made this decision.

All animals should not be tested on for the beauty industry.

I think just because it's not your own animal who isn't being tested on does not mean that it's acceptable for it to happen to the rest of the animals out there.

In the past i have written reviews, made videos and Instagrams which have featured products which aren't clear if they are cruelty free or not.  I'm keeping them live to show you my growth as a person and also my blog.

Trying On Spring/Summer Clothes 2016

Trying On Spring/Summer Clothes 2016
Hi Bunnies!

I thought that it would be fun for this weeks video to try on clothes in various clothes shops around Nottingham.

I'm 5ft 9 and a size 18 on the top and bottom. I'm currently trying to drop a dress size so i wanted to show you what my size 18 body looks like at the moment.  

Read my weight loss journey week 1 blog post by clicking here.

I think it's great to show what clothes like on a real person rather than a professional model or in a glamorous photo shoot. The place where everyone tries on clothes at a shop is a changing room, so it seemed logical for me to take photographs and to film in there! :)

In today's blog and video i visited ASDA (George), New Look (Curves) and H&M.

ASDA
Remember that clothes look completely different on your body. Don't judge a garment by what it looks like on the coat hanger.
H&M
Keep an open mind because something which looks unflattering on a coat hanger could look fantastic on you.

I don't normally go in H&M because the sizes don't usually fit me (they only go up to a 16). But i found 2 items which did fit and they look great. It's just a matter of shopping around.

Watch the video below :-
Did you enjoy this video? Which shop should i try on clothes next? Why not leave me a comment below! :)

Bunny Hugs,

Hayley
