Two years since our perfect day…

It’s now just over two years since our perfect wedding day.  I had always wanted to get married in the sun and without a destination wedding I just couldn’t guarantee it!

We had a quick eight month engagement which didn’t give us much time to plan our perfect wedding day.  I loved every moment of the planning and I could not have asked for a more wonderful wedding week in Rome.  However, it would have been a lot easier with a dedicated team of people to look after our special occasion.

Mum has a makeover…

Mum had a fantastic day with Kimberley in the Spanish sun having a make-over. Anyone who knows mum, knows this is not a usual happening for her but she really enjoyed it and she loved the product line Younique.  
 
Sarah, Kimberly’s friend is a Younique presenter and did the duo their fab makeovers, pointing out the flaws in mum’s non existent face protection regime in the sun.
 
Mum liked the concept of the Younique company which aims to empower women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents giving real help and support and hope for their futures
 
Not only is Younique an empowering direct sales company, with a low entry fee, it pays good commission, the products are, mum understands,  largely vegan  and from mums own admission “the make up feels really good”.
 
So if you are interested in the products or becoming a representative get in touch directly with Sarah on facebook.
 
I think both mum and Kimberley were looking pretty good before their makeover but what stunners they were after – thanks to Sarah and her great products!

Vegan beauty: An interview with White Rabbit Skincare…

On Saturday Dundee hosted its first ever Vegan Festival with huge success check it out here.

I got the chance to meet Melanie from White Rabbit Skin Care  , a co-sponsor for the event.  Ahead of the festival I had an electronic interview with Melanie about her product range and I was lucky enough to try White Rabbit It’s all about M.E  Night Cream It is amazing !  I have really sensitive skin and find it hard to find any creams that don’t result in dry or itchy skin, but this was amazing and I can’t wait to use it every night- get yours here.

We love your products, what drove you to create a skincare brand?

I was diagnosed with the skin condition psoriasis as a teenager (after initially being misdiagnosed with scabies…!), and the idea of using creams prescribed by the doctors (which are normally steroid/paraffin wax based, as well as being tested on animals) did not appeal to me at all, so I started researching natural, cruelty free alternatives.

I started out using simple ingredients such as shea butter and coconut oil, and then, after receiving a ‘make your own skincare’ book, I progressed to making actual skincare products, such as lip balms, body butters and so on. And the rest, as they say, is history!

I figured that what better way to guarantee the origins, ingredients and cruelty free status of a product than to make it myself?!

Why Vegan?

Why not?! Plant based ingredients are packed with so many nutrients and skin-beneficial vitamins and minerals – and don’t harm any animals or insects in the process. Moreover, the process to obtain such ingredients is often a lot more environmentally friendly and ‘clean’ than animal/insect-derived ingredients such as beeswax.

You’ve been busy at vegan festivals this year, what sort of reaction have you had to your products?

It’s genuinely been amazing, and so positive. I love that people want to help smaller businesses/brands by buying products such as our skincare range, and it’s so lovely to be part of a strong community of like-minded people – both customers and fellow businesses alike.

What’s your go to food for healthy, happy skin?

At the moment, it’s seaweed, believe it or not! I’ve discovered a Scottish company, Mara Seaweed, who harvest and priocess it themselves and sell it as a powder, which can be sprinkled over everything, from porridge to soup, making it a lot more palatable (I struggle with whole sheets of seaweed sometimes!). The benefits of seaweed are nearly too many to mention, but it is bursting with vitamins and minerals including iodine, calcium and potassium.

This year we are encouraging people to by sustainable and cruelty free products for christmas gifts.  What would you recommend  from your line?

I have a real soft-spot for our Chocolate Orange Lip balm – it makes the perfect stocking filler! I would also recommend our It’s All About M.E. Night Cream – not only does it help your skin, but it also benefits a charitable cause, with £1.00 from every pot sold donated to the ME Association.

What’s your favourite vegan snack right now?

Not very original, but…chocolate! Whoever said you can’t be vegan and eat chocolate clearly hasn’t experienced Vego or iChoc or spreads like the Hotel Chocolat Hazelnut spread! I also highly, highly recommend the Aldi Sea Salt Dark Chocolate. Yum!

Finally, how can we help you spread the word of you luxury cruelty free vegan products?

Please do come and say hello and (please) follow on our social media, and word of mouth recommendations to friends/family is a HUGE help – we always get SO excited when someone says “Oh I’ve heard about you…”
