My (honest) First 3 Months Vegan

For World Vegan month in November, I decided to go vegan. It was the second time in 2017 that I went vegan having completed Veganuary in January.
In January, I always knew I'd go back to being a vegetarian and I was fine with that. I have wanted to go vegan for years and knowing what happens to male chicks, male calves and how the chickens and cows are treated, I felt that I couldn't participate anymore. After a couple of heated debates on Facebook, I felt more determined than ever to go vegan so I entered November with every intention on remaining vegan. So how have my first 3 months vegan gone?

How To Use & Store Your Lush Naked Shower Gel

One of my favourite Lush smells is Rose Jam. I love Turkish delight so of course I want to smell like one too. In fact one of my first ever blog posts was a Rose Jam review.
In a recent trip to Lush Cardiff I noticed their a few of their festive favourites were available as a Naked Shower Gel instead of as a liquid in a plastic bottle.in a few of their festive fragrances. For those who do not know what a "naked" shower gel is, it is a completely packet-less solid product.
