#WorldAnimalDay and what you can do as an animal lover!

Several times I believe I’ve tried to engrave into my blog and writing that I sometimes struggle sticking with lifestyles such as vegan or even sometimes vegetarian. If I could switch off all my cravings, comfort food, deficiencies, illnesses and have a steady income I would definitely go vegan but sometimes for me and others it’s not always easy to 100% switch to a lifestyle and for some people it’s harder than others. I’ve always been a firm believer that vegans, vegetarians or meat eaters/omnivores shouldn’t force each other’s ‘beliefs’ down each others throats as it is counterproductive and doesn’t always spread the education and facts that people need to hear and instead becomes an ableist, stereotypical mess of joking and narrow-mindedness. Every human being is different underneath the surface and it does more harm than good to angrily assume why someone does the things they do. It’s better to ask questions and discuss than to yell words like ‘murderer’ or ‘hippie’ at each other without actually making any sort of productive change. Regarding my view on that, it means I’m very serious about making sure I never push my boundaries when discussing my views on being vegan or vegetarian and be as honest as possible; an example could be that I’ll admit, yes, sometimes I mess up and eat meat on some days or I’ll eat a chocolate/sweet gift from someone not regarding the dairy in it but at the same time I buy non-dairy milk in a carton for when I make myself tea or food that requires milk so that I reduce my dairy intake/purchases.

Today is ‘World Animal Day’ according to Twitter and obviously it is trending because we share our planet with these creatures. People love all sorts of animals when growing up whether it just be a domesticated pet or even wildlife creatures. Children are taught about these beautiful creatures growing up and it tends to be one of the core things humans relate to; you meet someone and you might ask what their favourite of something is and that could be the question ‘oh, what is your favourite animal?’. Unfortunately growing up you’re never really taught what can happen to the creatures we share our planets with and adults tip toe around the discussion with children because I think most adults don’t want to admit to the knowledge of it either. Nevertheless, it’s there and it doesn’t start or end with say, farm animals, it’s also wildlife, sealife, domestic pets and the list probably goes on in more detail. I think it should be discussed with teenagers and young adults what stuff you can start doing when growing up that has less of a negative impact on animals, much like we are taught to walk instead of drive places or switch the lights off in a room after using it to reduce our carbon footprint. I’d like to see ‘little things to help animals’ promoted a lot more and in more detail than just sending off small donations to charities and that’s that.

#1: Choose one day a week to go meat-free.

I will sympathise only slightly with people who declare ‘I couldn’t go vegetarian, I love meat too much!’, when told they should stop eating meat. It can be relatively easy to stop eating meat products when you put your mind to it. A great idea, inspired by the movement ‘Meatless Monday’, is to pick one day a week that you pledge to just not eat, purchase or consume meat products all day. It doesn’t have to be a Monday it could be any day you prefer, but it’s a great start in reducing your meat intake.

#2: Buy Cruelty-Free beauty dupes.

Unfortunately a lot of beauty companies still get away with animal testing and using ingredients that are derived from animals. Some well-known names include L’Oreal, Benefit, MAC, Maybelline, Revlon, Clearasil and Herbal Essences. I’m definitely not saying if you own any products from these brands to run screaming to the nearest bin and chuck them all in as that is wasting a product and the packaging. The best thing to do is when you finally run out or get rid of said product to look for a dupe in a cruelty-free brand. Some really easy finds include Superdrug’s own brand, Barry M, B. by Superdrug, BH Cosmetics, Lush and Kat Von D. If you are ever unsure of something, look for the little ‘Cruelty Free’ rabbit on the packaging or give it a quick google search as there are so many useful blogs and pages from the company ready to help you. If a company’s stance on cruelty-free practice ever seems dodgy to you, just go with your instinct.

#3: Support adopting pets.

Obviously this idea can only really come into play if you are planning on getting a pet anytime soon. There is plenty of benefits to adopting a pet that include giving a pet that could no longer have a home with it’s old family a new life and home, some pets in adoption shelters may have been taken from a cruel past and you are giving it a chance to experience love and comfort which is such a lovely thought. Always look at chances to help out people who may have had an unexpected litter come into their lives – you know when someone you used to go to high school with advertises on facebook that their cat just had lots of kittens and they need a new home? Definitely support that, it means that the young kittens can grow up in a home with care instead of being separated from it’s litter and put in a home with tons of other cats. Unfortunately in that scenario, if the owner needs to get people to adopt the litter cause they can’t look after them all, both ways the kitten will be separated from it’s mum/litter, but I think it’d be a much better chance for you and the kitten than the hassle of it being put in a shelter and having to wait to be adopted.

#4: Find your local vegan/vegetarian cafe.

Support your local vegan and vegetarian establishments! You’ll be able to discover new food and meals that don’t cost the earth and help work towards encouraging the trend of vegan cooking in the industry. I’ve noticed in the past few years more restaurants and cafes introducing different types of non-dairy milk or even non-dairy cheese in meals. A good example is the vegan stuff restaurant Zizzi is starting to bring into their menu! I believe it all comes down to supporting independent animal-loving businesses, they are the heart of the vegan/vegetarian food industry and should be encouraged so that the word of supporting animals and the environment gets even more out there.

Is there anything else you guys think should be included on the list? I’m also going to leave here some interesting petitions you guys might be interested in signing on World Animal Day.

5 Accidentally Vegan Items and 5 I wish were

accidentallyveganheader

One of my favourite Instagram account findings since I took upon myself to go vegetarian and incorporate more vegan/cruelty-free stuff has been an account named AccidentallyVeganUK. They post and collect products found in the UK that are accidentally vegan – hence the name. So somehow these products don’t include any meat, gelatine, milk, cream, eggs – no animal product to be found! A lot of the finds on this page are also treats, cheap snacks; which makes it great for vegans/vegetarians/people with dairy allergies who are on a budget. I decided to share with you today some items I am so happy and surprised are vegan and 5 items I love snacking on/having in the cupboard that I wish were vegan. I hope this list is useful for anybody vegan, vegetarian or omnivore!

accidentallyvegan001.png

1 – Parma Violets
2 – Double Stuffed Oreos
3 – Propercorn Sweet & Salty
4 – Cheetos Twisted Flamin’ Hot
5 – Nik Naks Nice N Spicy
6 – Pringles Paprika

wishwerevegan.png

1 – BN Chocolate Biscuits
2 – Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli
3 – Super Noodles Curry Flavour
4 – Thorntons Fabulous Vanilla Fudge
5 – Maynards Wine Gums

I’d be so happy and greedy if these junk items were vegan. It’d be great to eat sweets like Wine Gums or Haribo without the worry of gelatine. Have you guys got any stuff you wish was cruelty free at all or are you surprised some of your favourite stuff is accidentally vegan?

Small Steps to Cruelty Free

smallstepstocrueltyfreeheader

Sometimes I feel very contradicting whenever I write about pro-veggie or cruelty free stuff in blog posts, cause in all honesty I do still use or consume products that are probably very against that ethic. I still have a few makeup products knocking around that are Maybelline or Benefit – both of which aren’t confirmed cruelty free, and I do still eat chocolate or products now and again that contain milk or eggs. I never confirm myself as vegan although I am interested in the research and evidence behind it and I know deep down, transitioning to a vegan lifestyle might benefit me in a lot of ways.

However my beliefs are mainly that if people are open to trying more pro-veggie and cruelty free products and reducing their ‘footprint’, if you could call it that. If someone goes vegetarian and uses more and more cruelty free products – that is better than nothing. If people go vegan for two days a week, that’s pretty impressive to me. I think transitioning to a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle isn’t something anyone can just do. It requires money, time to prepare meals that are completely vegan, research and such. So I decided to write this blog post to introduce some small steps for different ‘areas’ in your daily life that you could switch out products to be more cruelty free/pro-animal.

Kitchen – Butter/Margarine

Photo 30-04-2016, 12 39 27 p.m..jpg

Vitalite is only £1 in most supermarkets and is a full tub of dairy-free, sunflower oil based margarine. It’s an easy, food swap out that is vegan because it literally tastes no different to usual butter. In fact I personally prefer it because it feels a lot lighter than butter when used on toast, for example.

Living Room/Decoration – Wax Melt

DokiDoki-Header-1.jpg

So these might be a little bit pricey to some, but if you’re a fan of Yankee Candles or decorations like such. This little UK based shop on Etsy called CarolineJaneCandles has a lovely selection of vegan wax melts and candles made with natural soy wax. The candles are a little bit pricier but the wax melts go at £1.50 so you can’t go wrong! They come in lovely scents as well, my favourite is the shop’s cinnamon whirl melts as the smell of bakeries and pastries are just divine.

Bathroom – Toothpaste

I have mentioned Kingfisher Toothpastes on a blog post in the past, and I still stand by the toothpaste now. You can get a three bulk pack of Kingfisher’s Fluoride Free Mint Toothpaste on Amazon for £8.91, and these toothpastes would definitely last you a good while, if not a year. They are fluoride free, vegan and cruelty free.

Handbag – Lipbalm

Photo 06-05-2016, 10 59 43 p.m..jpg

Lush cosmetics is one of the favourites for many cruelty-free shoppers. They are very committed to their ethics and a lot of their products are vegan. The bath products of Lush are super popular and a great treat for yourself or friends however I want to promote the excellence of their lip balm tins. They are quite pricey but last a long time and definitely moisturise your lips. My favourite lip balm by them is Honey Trap because the ‘flavour’ is so lovely however they are only really ‘cruelty-free’. They are not labelled vegan because of the honey ingredient however Lush do many vegan alternatives like the lip balm ‘None of Your Beeswax‘.

Have you used any of these products before? Is there any other cheaper alternatives you may recommend to people on a budget who want to add more cruelty-free products to their life? Tell me in the comments below and share!

Cruelty-free beauty products under £10!

Recently I followed a useful twitter account that provides cruelty-free ‘dupes’ of popular makeup and beauty products. You can check their account out here! The account got me thinking of what cruelty-free products I own already and which ones I would love to try next time I need to purchase new makeup. However some of the ‘dupes’ are still quite expensive and make it hard for people who cannot afford say the eye palette from Too Faced or import Kat Von D’s makeup so I thought I’d put together a little list of cheap, under £15 cruelty-free makeup items you may enjoy!

#1 Superdrug’s ‘B.’ Brush Cleanser Spray

8964656496670

Have I owned?: YES Price: £4.99 

When I was growing up, throughout high school and college, I struggled a lot with acne and skin picking, so makeup was an easy way of making my skin feel a bit cleaner and less gross but I never really thought about the importance of keeping my makeup brushes clean until the past year or so. Superdrug have their own brand ‘B.’ which is all cruelty-free and vegan so when I noticed they had a makeup brush cleanser I thought it’d be a sensible purchase to make and it was! This cleanser works by spraying a pump of the cleanser onto your makeup brush and massaging the brush into a tissue to remove residue. Since I started regularly cleaning my makeup brushes with this I have seen an improvement in my skin, obviously my diet and lifestyle also effect my skin/acne but keeping my brushes clean with this cheap, cruelty-free cleanser probably also helped a lot!

#2 Boots Natural Collection Pressed Powder

10052029

Have I owned?: YES Price: £1.99

The Natural Collection at Boots are a wonderful, good for price, makeup brand that imply they do not animal test and are cruelty free. I can’t find any evidence about if they are vegan or not so if anybody could provide me more background on the brand that would be extremely helpful! I recently purchased their pressed powder as sometimes my concealer and face makeup easily wipes off over the course of the day and this one was extremely cheap and works fine for the price it is! A definite cheaper and better dupe to use compared to brands such as Rimmel or Max Factor.

#3 Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser

8890002636830.jpg

Have I owned?: YES Price: £5.99

If you’re a fan of hot cloth cleansers you would of probably heard of the lovely Liz Earle hot cloth cleansers, which are very heavenly and I have to agree when I once got a little tester tube – made my skin feel so soft. Luckily for us cruelty-free fans Liz Earle claim on their website they do not test their ingredients or products on animals and do it on human volunteers! They also have the Leaping Bunny stamp of approval and point out on their FAQ which products are not vegan (e.g products with manuka honey/beeswax). Hooray! However Liz Earle’s products can be quite pricey for some of us and a fabulous, cheap dupe is Superdrug’s hot cloth cleanser! Only recently buying this (like literally yesterday), I have not yet tried and tested this product but it is suitable for vegans and cruelty free and has a lot of amazing reviews on their website so I cannot wait to introduce it into my skincare routine!

#4 Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Lips

8965920653342.jpg

Have I owned? NO Price: £4.99

Red lips are very much back in recently.  Loads of different shades suit loads of different people and I can definitely agree I am on the bandwagon and love having red lips and would love to own a quick, cheap cruelty free one I can keep in my bag to apply whenever. Barry M is cruelty free and have marked this cheap, convenient lip pencil as vegan! It comes in a couple of colours including a dark, plum-like red or an orange-tinted pink. This is an amazing dupe to the Bourjois lip crayon range.

#5 Cruelty-free shower gels

8949249572894

IMPORTANT EDIT: I have been told unfortunately Original Source’s parent company is known for testing their ingredients on animals which means these aren’t completely cruelty-free products unfortunately – alas they are still vegan if you are looking for a good vegan cheap shower gel however some *definite* cruelty-free shower gels could include Superdrug’s own shower gels! These carry the leaping bunny logo and are only a brilliant 99p!!! They come in a wide variety of lovely scents including my beloved coconut scent. 

 

#6 e.l.f Studio Eyeshadow Primer

ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer description 5.jpg

Have I owned? NO Price: £4.50

A lot of makeup reviewers/artists swear by the ‘Urban Decay’ eyeshadow primer and I am sure, considering it’s hype, it is a very trustworthy product however I am never sure of Urban Decay’s cruelty-free stance as some days I’ll hear people say it is cruelty free and other days people claim they’re lying. It’s all a bit of a fuss and personally the price is quite peak and not really made for a broke consumer either! E.L.F is a company that have the cruelty-free bunny stamp and do not test on animals and their products are extremely cheap so why not try their eyeshadow primer!

So yeah there are some cheap, cruelty-free alternatives you may want to check out next time you treat yourself on the beauty isle! Is there any cruelty-free products you stand by and love that you’d recommend to me? Feel free to comment!

Broke Girl Reviews: Cruelty Free Products on my Wishlist November 2015

Has anyone got the new layout for making WordPress posts on the PC browser?  Feels quite strange to use, doesn’t it! Or is that just me?

Good morning/afternoon/evening! Recently in the run up to Christmas I’ve been seeing lovely and alluring products in shops everywhere or on Instagram and Youtube and it makes me envious because unfortunately lately I do not have really any spare money to go out and treat myself to stuff from my favourite stores. So I thought I’d do a broke girl review/wishlist blog post on cruelty free products I have seen lately that I’d really like to get myself when money comes along! As well as talk about products I have used before and really want to stock back up on for people looking for new, cruelty-free products to try!

# 1 – Snow Fairy Shower Gel

Ahhhhhh!!! I get so hyped about Lush Cosmetic’s Snow Fairy shower gel every year when it is released. Snow Fairy is a limited edition bright pink shower gel that becomes available in Lush stores every Winter in time for Christmas. The product is a lovely cruelty-free, vegan mix and smells of all delicious candyfloss. For the past two years I have owned big bottles of this product and it definitely lasts me a long time. I only just ran out of my last bottle a month back and really hope to get the money to get another big bottle soon.

# 2 – Premium Chocolatiers Treats

11216845_10206535702583002_277586238357778656_n

via @vrevolutionyeah on Instagram

 

I believe these vegan treats originate from the US but recently my favourite Manchester cafe ‘V Revolution’ brought in some of their stock and I got their ‘Peanot Butter No-Nos’ which seemed to be vegan alternatives to Peanut M&M’s! They were very delicious and sweet, considering how my slow transition to more vegan/vegetarian choices of food has been very hard in the sweets/dessert region (A lot of my favourite treats include milk) these were a really good find. I hope soon to be able to go back to V Revolution and maybe pick up some other Premium Chocolatier treats. I really like the look of their Peanot Butter Cups and No Whey! Candy Bars.

# 3 – theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer Highlight, Shadow & Shimmer

11216845_10206535702583002_277586238357778656_n

I discovered the Balm’s cosmetics range mainly on a website called cutECOsmetics. According to the website they are a UK stockist of vegan, cruelty-free and organic products. Lately I’d really like to find a good powder to use as either blush or highlighter and I was drawn in by the Balm’s ‘Cindy-Lou Manizer’ highlighter. According to the website it is talc-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free. The pin-up, almost Benefit-esque art style of the packaging is really appealing and I love how dusk and peachy the colour is.

# 4 – Karma Bubble Bar

I absolutely adore the new design of the Lush Karma bubble bar. I really liked it back when it was the orange swirly block but something feels a lot more eye-catching about this luxurious looking little purple pyramid. I absolutely love the dark purple colour on it and the smell is mouth-watering. I can’t help but pick it up and sniff it everytime I’m in a Lush store. Like most Lush products it is 100% cruelty free and it is also vegan! I definitely want to get one of these bubble bars before Christmas as it seems like the perfect scent for a relaxing Christmas eve bubble bath especially with the dreamy lavendin and patchouli oil.

# 5 – Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer

veggie-page-image_1fcb

I have heard a lot of youtubers rave about Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer. I’m pretty sure almost all of the makeup-focused beauty youtubers and bloggers have or still use this primer for eye makeup and considering I have recently found out that Urban Decay is cruelty free, I really want to jump on the primer bandwagon! I really love putting sleek winged eyeliner and pigmented eyeshadows on my eyes when doing makeup however my eyes are prone to watering a lot or the makeup just sweating off during the day so I think I could benefit greatly from this little tube.

# 6 – Moo-Free Advent Calendar

11999939_10206535764664554_1678565677_n

A December is not a proper December without an advent calendar for me. This year I was slightly tempted by some other forms of advent calendars that retailers do including the Body Shop’s yearly calendar, however I am not sure if I can quite commit to spending that much on a calendar this year. But recently I found out one of my favourite vegan chocolate companies ‘Moo-Free’ does a vegan advent calendar! The design on it is absolutely adorable and it is cruelty-free which is double the greatness! If I can find a retailer that does these advent calendars I am going to have to plead for my mum to get me one!

 

So yeah those are my top 6 cruelty-free things on my wishlist this month. All my fingers and toes are crossed that soon I’ll be able to get some money and a job and be able to treat myself! If not, people who know me reading this.. Christmas is coming. *wink wink*

my recommendation of delicious vegetarian options from well-known restaurants

This year I’ve recently decide to commit myself to becoming vegetarian. I have been wanting to do it for the past year but sometimes stumbled off the wagon especially around Christmas. However a month or two back I decided to definitely state myself as one. I told my family and friends that I was one so it wouldn’t seem strange when I asked for meat-free meals etc.

It’s been hard at some points, especially accompanying friends to places like McDonald’s where the chicken nuggets are addictive. However I’ve been really enjoying being vegetarian the past few months. I haven’t craved meat much at all unless I’ve been starving hungry and near it and even then it feels good to take the veggie option and consume extra vegetables. I remember hating vegetables as a kid but now I literally vacuum them up or get second servings of vegetables because of how delicious they are.

However, turning vegetarian is always difficult for people whom have grown up eating meat. Especially if you do not live alone and have control over what is bought in groceries. So I decided to get together a list of well-known restaurants/chains and tell you what my favourite vegetarian options are from each place! So next time you go and feel like taking the meat-free option, you can try these out and see what you think! I’m sure the farm animals will thank you.

DISCLAIMER: All of these options are vegetarian, not vegan. I can not confirm that any of these meals include dairy or other animal produce in their food.

PIZZA HUT

I do not visit Pizza Hut restaurants often but their Classic Veggie pizza is incredible and very filling. It has all the vegetables I love on it including sweetcorn, peppers and mushrooms. The flavour is so delightful and it’s what I always order when I go there. You can also dip into a bucket of fries for the table if you are out with friends or a date as they are also vegetarian.

Pizza-Hut-Thin-N-Crispy-Veggie-Lovers-Pizza-09-pg-full

TGI FRIDAYS

I adore TGI Fridays. It’s one of my favourite restaurants, mainly for the atmosphere. I love the American diner style of the reds and whites and all the lights on the logo. When I go there I tend to order a Sizzling Veggie Fajita. The waiter brings you all the sizzling vegetables separate from dips and the tortillas so you can make the fajita the way you want and it is so delicious. Unfortunately there is no veggie burger option from TGI Fridays yet, considering how much I would adore the burgers back when I ate meat. I hope one day they bring out one because it’d be great to try. Their sundaes are also delicious and vegetarian. My favourite one is the Cookies & Cream one, as it includes Oreos which are so tasty!

CHIQUITOS

Last year I managed to find probably one of my favourite vegetarian meals from a chain restaurant in Chiquitos. I always rave about how tasty it was whenever people mention the restaurant and I definitely recommend it. This is the Veggie Volcano burger. It includes a veggie bean burger with mayo, five bean chilli, melted cheese and jalapenos. However because I really do not like cheese I tend to order this without the melted cheese, it’s still just as gorgeous!

WAGAMAMA’S

I have to personally thank my lovely boyfriend Will for introducing me to Wagamama’s as I had never gone to it before last year. It’s menu is very unique and there are lots to choose from on there so I was definitely able to find a delicious meat-free option for myself and the portions are so filling and big that even without meat, which is generally the stomach-filler of a main meal, I was unsure if I’d be able to finish meals from there. The Yasai Katsu Curry from Wagamama’s is so full-flavoured. Compared to the traditional Chicken Katsu Curry, the Yasai has sweet potato, aubergine and butternut squash coated in panko breadcrumbs drowned in the aromatic curry sauce. It is so divine and delicious, that I’m actually craving it as I type! You can also get yasai steamed dumplings or wok-fried greens as a side to your meal which are also delicious vegetarian options!

TAMPOPO

Tampopo is very similar to Wagamama’s in atmosphere and cuisine however it was a visit to the Trafford Centre restaurant yesterday that inspired me to write this post! It was my first Tampopo meal and I had the delight of eating the Thai Style Vegetarian Fried Rice. There was so many different flavours in this meal and they all complimented each other. You can order this meal with chicken or prawn however with the vegetarian choice you get chunks of tofu which are just as delicious and go well with the egg, mushrooms, peppers and pineapple mixed in the delicious fried rice.

SUBWAY

Although not really a ‘well-known’ restaurant. Since going vegetarian, Subway tends to be my go to place for ‘fast food’. When I go to a shopping centre food court where I’m surrounded by McDonald’s, KFC, Pizza Hut Express, Gregg’s etc, I tend to go for Subway because the veggie options there are definitely the tastiest. My subway order may seem very mundane but to me it is very delicious and filling. I tend to have the bread as either hearty italian or honey oat. My filling is either a veggie patty or I like to go for the ‘veggie delite’, which is basically no filling thanks I’m just going to have a lot of veggies. (If you listen closely you can hear meat eaters judging me and moaning in the distance). I always get the bread toasted because it’s just boring without the warm, soft bread. Then for vegetable fillings I go for cucumbers, lettuce, red onions, green peppers, sweetcorn, grated carrot and jalapeno. I sometimes give or take random ingredients but I will always definitely have cucumbers, peppers and jalapeno on. So basically my subway order is a Toasted Hearty Italian/Honey Oat VEGGIE DELITE.  I do not tend to have sauce on it but that is mainly because I have never tried any of them which I should probably change soon. Don’t want to make my veggie subway more aesthetically boring than it already seems. But whatever people say I love it! I do also enjoy a Subway Rainbow Cookie as a treat, as I think they are vegetarian as far as I am aware. If I am wrong, I would love to be corrected, please!

veggie-page-image_1fcb

But yeah, that’s my recommendations for anyone who would like to try a delicious vegetarian option in any of these restaurants! Feel free to comment any other places or chains that do great veggie options! It’s useful for aspiring vegetarians!
