Get well soon: your clean & vegan cold & flu recovery guide!

Sorry to go AWOL on you! Life has taken a turn for the challenging of late and the content plan has drifted out the window, along with most of my new year goals. It all started back in jan when an old fitness injury not only recurred, but combined with tension (overwork and lack of […]

ECO. argan hair oil reviewed

Has anyone else recently become a TK Maxx convert? It’s quietly found a little spot in my mind that pings whenever I need a random item, from tupperware pot (a clean eating prep essential!) to sports bra, to exfoliating mitt. The TX Maxx beauty section is quite a treasure trove in itself, and you’re now […]

Revital-eyes: Nourish Kale Eye Cream

I can’t believe this is my first full Nourish review. I say ‘full’ as we passed a brief mention of the Golden Glow Toning Body Shimmer last July.

Hot Diggity Yam: Lippy Girl Vegocentric Lipstick Review

The working title of this piece was ‘My First Vegan Lipstick’, which rather summoned thoughts of my first lipstick of all – a Tinkerbell number excitedly purchased from a then local toyshop. It came with a peel-off ballerina pink polish that kept me excited for weeks. Dad was naturally horrified and it was a strictly […]

Vegan in Berlin: part 2

Don’t you think it’s time we do part two of our Vegan in Berlin feature? Part one saw us fall for the super cool Till The Cows Come Home - a place we positively cannot wait to return to this year. Of course we got so waylaid with all things TTCCH that we ran out of […]

Nutrition notes: iodine & Green Bay’s Fine Kelp

So Buff Beauties, what do you know about iodine? It’s time to swot up on this vital trace element and make sure you’re getting enough of your health fix… What is iodine? Well I’ve already told you iodine is a trace element. Its key function is to support your thyroid hormones, which play a vital […]


Winter skin smart: REN Clean Skincare

Can it really be that we haven’t discussed skincare since the summer? Well let’s remedy that right away! I’m thrilled to say I’m currently in a good complexion place and can credit this to three products in particular – the first is one of the above, which I’ve been layering with two other products from […]
