I talk beauty & mental health


One of my favorite hobbies at the moment is disagreeing with absolutely anything and anyone, especially on the internet - or so it seems. I'm guessing I just have a lot to say about all the 'popular opinions' that have been going around for a while. People like to mindlessly repeat what they are told, without giving actual thought to what they are saying and without one ounce of critical thinking - as if they don't actually have a brain of their own. I believe that it is my formal duty, as an online creator, to remind you that words mean things and that they don't have less of an impact just because you don't know any better. So, here are 6 common life lessons that I disagree with and that I think you should stop believing too. You're welcome.
Bioderma Beauty Hack

The Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water is a product that I've been purchasing pretty much ever since it hit the market, I think that was back in 2012 (but I could be wrong). I've always sworn by this as a makeup remover because it's so gentle to the skin and it's never caused me the many issues that other makeup removers have, such as stinging of the eyes, reddening of the skin or even burning sensations. More recently I started using this water for other purposes and I've discovered that this product not only is the world's best makeup remover, it also has a secret beauty hack in store you've definitely never heard of before!

Apart from going to therapy, there are a number of things that have changed my life tremendously this past year. As I've gotten to learn more about self care and about how important it is to take time for yourself, I've been focussing my energy on making sure that I listen to my body and that I'm aware of my needs. Physically, mentally and spiritually. Finding yourself and discovering what makes you happy, nurturing that forever feeling of wanting to know and learn more, is a journey and one that's only started for me recently. This didn't happen all at once, this was hard work and, oh, so many tears. It was a slow process but here we are, 5 ways I've been living happier life!
LOreal Accord Parfait Foundation

A lot of the makeup and beauty products I use, review and promote aren't cruelty free. I've come to  recognise, especially over the past year, that for many of you this is something extremely important - and I want to preface this post by saying that I absolutely understand why you are so passionate about the topic. As a blogger who doesn't exactly share or seem to show any interest about it on her site, admittedly, I'm sure you can see that this puts me in quite an awkward position. When it comes to animal testing and the beauty industry, there's no denial that this is a controversial and sensitive issue that is difficult to talk about as it is a subject that is often met with a lot of anger and disgust. After yet another 'that product is not cruelty free' comment on one of my recent blogposts I thought I'd finally share with you why exactly I haven't gone the cruelty free route and why your comments, more often than not, leave a bad taste in my mouth. I want to share with you that I'm not as ignorant about the topic as you might think and show you that I actually have been changing things up in my life - without talking about it on my socials.

As much as I don't want to admit my mistakes as a bunny momma, I feel like this post is very important to share as there is so much misinformation out there about how to care for a bunny. You see, many of the products sold in pet shops aren't actually suitable for rabbits. To be honest, I'm kind of confused as to how most of the supplies are still allowed to be sold as they aren't recommended by any vet, rabbit rescue groups or shelters. I'm not a bunny expert by any means but I do want to tell you all about what I've learned, which mistakes I made, how I corrected them and how I could have saved a lot of money if I had known all of this information before getting a pet rabbit.
