Going Cruelty Free With Makeup...

Today's post is one that I have wanting to write for a while now and I'm so happy to be uploading this...

I am going cruelty free with my makeup and I couldn't be happier! It's something that I have wanted to do for a really long time now and I'm glad that I finally sat down and did all my research! I have chosen to go cruelty free with my makeup because I have a big love for all animals and I think animal cruelty is unacceptable! I wanted to make this change to promote and raise awareness and do all that I can to try and stop animal testing...

I honestly didn't realise how many brands were still testing on animals and it makes me so so sad that a lot of the popular brands still do! Although some brands may tell you that they are cruelty free, thats not always the story...Because of some laws in other countries, that say we have to test on animals rather than humans, some brands say that this part of the process is out of their control. But a lot of brands have found other ways around this so no animals are harmed, so why can't all brands follow this? I know it can be difficult but I just hope that one day, no animals will be harmed to create any product!

I have spent so many hours researching this topic and it was so interesting to find everything out. I managed to find lots of helpful websites and blogs to read and I now know which brands are cruelty free! It was upsetting to see that I was using a lot of brands that still test on animals, but now I know and I won't be buying from them anymore!

Trip to Brighton!

So, recently I took a little trip to Brighton with two of my closest friends Alice and Nia! I had been waiting for this trip for so so long and I can honestly say that I had the best time! Brighton is now one of my favourite places that I have ever been too and I would love to live there some day...yes that's how much we all loved it! In today's post I'm going to be sharing some photos from the trip with you and also letting you know some of the best moments too. If you ever have the chance to go to Brighton or are even considering it, DO IT! I promise that you won't regret it and will thank me later...

The first day was spent getting to know the area and exploring a little bit! It was a really beautiful day which always makes everything so much better, so that was a bonus! I really loved just walking around everywhere and recognising places from Zoe and Alfies vlogs! Seeing the Bandstand for the first time was amazing for me and this is 100% one of my favourite things about Brighton! The first day was really lovely and we spent the night on the beach watching the sunset and this was such a moment for all of us! We all had instantly fallen in love with Brighton and we knew it was going to be a good few days! We stayed in an Air BnB which is something that I have never done before! It was really great staying with a family and so comfortable and relaxing! I think that I might do a whole other post on this experience in the future!

Spreading the positivity...

Now this is a post that I have been wanting to write for a while now and I'm very happy that I now have a chance to sit down and write this! Today's post is all about spreading the positivity, especially on social media. I have seen so many negative comments or opinions recently, so I thought that I would try and spread a little more love and encourage people to do the same...

Firstly, I have seen a lot of negative comments or tweets recently from one girl to another in particular and I can't understand this! I believe that as girls, we should all support each other and instead of pointing out the bad things that some of us will feel insecure about, we should celebrate the positive things and compliment each other! I have seen these negative comments happen far too much in the blogging and YouTube community and I just think that it's time for this to stop and for us all to accept that not everyone is the same therefore we won't all have the same opinions...and that's okay! If you don't agree with something, you don't have to voice your opinion at all, just keep quiet and move on. Nobody is perfect and we all have our down days, so us girls need to stick together and support each other in spreading the love and positivity! We are all unique and beautiful, so please don't make people feel like they need to look a certain way, I think that I will be doing a whole other post on body confidence very soon, so be sure to look out for that!

Me Before You...

"You only get one life. It's actually your duty to live it as fully as possible."

Today's post is purely dedicated to the film and book called Me Before You! I thought that I would do a blog post all about these as it is something that I would highly recommend and plus, I've never done anything like this before so I thought it would be good!

I'm not going to give any major spoilers in this post as I know how annoying that can be, so you don't have to worry about that!

First of all, I'm going to give you a few words on what it's about, just in case you didn't know!

Louisa Clarke finds herself with a new job taking care of Will Traynor, who is paralyzed from the waist down after an accident a few years ago. Louisa is a happy and quirky character but her cheerful attitude is put to the test by Will. Louisa tries to show Will that life is worth living no matter what, but will she change Wills mind before its too late?

Okay...I'm no film critic and writer but that's the best I can do!

I'm going to start with the film as this is what I saw first before reading the book. I honestly fell in love with the film within the first 10 minutes of it and my love for it just got bigger and bigger! I really love the character Louisa Clarke who is the main girl played by Emilia Clarke. I just love how bubbly and happy she is and I think that she is a character that everyone will just love and connect with! I also really loved Sam Claflin playing the main guy Will Traynor too. I thought that he did such an amazing job and I also connected with this character so much when watching the film! The whole story-line is something different to your usual romantic film and I think something like this film was long overdue. I really loved all of the messages that this film gave and I love it when I can take so much away from a film.
