CREATIVITY IS KEY🗝🗝🗝
Spreading a little desk inspo on my feed today!
I'm getting organised people! and have so much to bring you over the next couple of weeks, that for the first time in what feels like a long time, I'm excited...very excited💗
I've been lacking inspiration for a while now due to this, that and the other (life basically!) but I'm starting to feel like me again and I can't wait to share everything I have planned with you 🙌🏽
Have a Happy Humpday you babes, I'm off for a glass of vino! 💗💗

I adore finding new vegan fashion companies and get excited with every new website link that I click on but I must say I'm also very fond of high-end cruelty free fashion...!
The companies themselves may not be cruelty free but I'm a big believer that, for example, if faux leather bags such as these become more and more popular, designers will start making more of them available for people who love vegan fashion and that, in my opinion would definitely be a step in the right direction.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this matter too??? Don't be shy 😘

So I've attempted to whiten and brighten with @hismileteeth 👄
and been using the day and night toothpaste for over a Month now, I have to be honest (of course!) and say even though I love many things about this brand i.e. #crueltyfree#veganfriendly and products get delivered straight to your door 🙌🏽 I haven't actually seen much difference in the whiteness of my teeth 🤔😭
I have yet to try the whitening kit so there's still hopes for that AND I'll be using it for the first time on #youtube so that should be interesting 🙈😂
Have you tried these and if so how did you get on? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭
H a p p y S a t u r d a y 💗💗💗
So with all the changes of Instagram I've noticed a massive decrease in my engagement 🤦🏻♀️
It's been extremely de-motivating to be honest but I've decided to f**k it and do what I'm doing anyway 🙅🏻
Has anyone else been going through the same thing or can anyone shed some light on this matter?
Anyway my point is, no matter who or what tries to hold you back (haters and yes you too Instagram lol!) keep doing your shizzle because yes you guessed it!
WE'RE STILL FABULOUS 🙌🏽👩🏼🎤✌🏽

Whenever I post on a beauty product I like to keep the photo simple and who doesn't love a bit of marble.
@bybibeauty and @cleanbeautyco sent me this Hyaluronic Acid Toner which is crueltyfree and vegan.
It's made with 100% natural ingredients and made in the UK (swipe for pics).
I love the fact that you can spritz with this toner as I've read you need to stay away from cotton pads - you could remove the remains with a cotton pad but I just prefer to leave it to settle.
I found this product to be so refreshing and you can clearly smell the rose in it which I know is one of the best ingredients to use as a toner. Obviously we all know Hyaluronic acid is antiageing so it goes without saying, that's a bonus!
@bybibeauty have the cutest packaging so it definitely has a proud place in my bathroom cabinet.
Thank you @bybibeauty @cleanbeautyco for yet another brilliant product whilst caring for animals and our skin at the same time 💗

Update on little birdie Jay, I ended up finding him on my way back from work that evening. We took him home to make sure he would be safe, warm and fed. On day one he was blind due to the infection on his eyes and wouldn't eat no matter how hard we tried, although he did drink a little glucose water. On day two he had opened his eyes and was looking at us which gave me hope 💙At this point he had still not eaten so we made the decision to take him to professional care who had informed me they would look after him until he was well enough to be freed.
However, I called them the day after dropping him off and to my disappointment they had put him to sleep as he deteriorated 💔
I had imagined a happy ending for little birdie Jay but at the very least I'm thankful he died in peace and not on the streets 🕊

This morning while on my way to work I saw a man standing in the middle of a quiet street, as I got closer I realised there was a baby pigeon just sitting there too.
Another guy stopped and started chatting, about a minute later I was standing by them, asking what had happened.
Turns out the baby pigeon fell from it's nest located above on the rail track bridge so there was no way of getting him back up there 💔
We worked as a little team to get the little one to safety, placing him as high as we could on a high wall out of harms way. Not sure if the little birdie will survive but we tried and that's what counts.
It warms my heart knowing I just met two beautiful souls that care about Nature just as much as I do.
I wished them well and as we went our separate ways one of them shouted out and asked me my name, when I told him he replied while continuing to walk away
"I've named this birdie Jay, that will be its name"
What a bitter sweet start to my day, I hope that little birdie makes it and those two lovely guys stay blessed.
Kindness...it really is such a beautiful thing 💙🌍🙏🏽
I couldn't stop thinking about little birdie Jay so I got a box from work and prayed it was still there on my way home from work...and the little birdie was!!! My partner was tall enough to step on a crate and get him/her so we have birdie Jay at home with us now. Seems poorly and won't drink the glucose water I prepared so fingers crossed he/she make it through the night xxx

This is one of my all time favourite dishes! It's delicious, nutritional and really refreshing. Once my blog is ready I'm going to start sharing my favourite recipes and I can't wait! (It's taking a while as my computer is slacking but bare with me as I have a new one on the way! 🙌🏽}
For now the ingredients for this Turkish dish called Kisir is:
- Chopped cucumber
- Chopped tomatoes (I added some black tomatoes too)
- Sliced long sweet green peppers
- Chopped parsley
- Chopped spring onions
- Aci Biber Salcasi (A Turkish ingredient which can be found in ethnic shops. It's basically a spiced and concentrated tomato paste but can turn any dish into a finger linking meal!)
- Olive Oil
- Fresh lemon juice
Once the couscous has been prepared you add the olive oil and Salca, mix in well (preferably with clean hands! Go on get messy it'll be worth it I promise!).
Then you add all the salads, a little more olive oil, lemon juice and mix normally (not with hands, you don't want a "squishy" consistency).
Obviously add your sea salt and lettuce leaves and your good to go.
Me and my partner finished this in one sitting haha! I love to fill the lettuce leaves and wrapped it up then just munch till your hearts content.
Enjoy! I'll be adding this to the blog with detailed descriptions as it's a little difficult doing so on an Instagram post.
