PersonalWhere are you from?
Do you miss Dundee? Would you move back?
I do really miss Dundee and believe it is a wonderful city. However, most of my friends have now moved on and little remains for me there.
Would you move back to Aberdeen?
Can't imagine it.
How many piercings/tattoos do you have?
I have my ear lobes (which I almost never wear), forward helix and tragus (plus a rejected belly button) with a few more planned. I don't have any tattoos, though I have considered it.
I started my first blog in third year of high school, which would have been the academic year 2014/2015.
What is the CFBloggers Chat?
It's a weekly Twitter chat that I help moderate for cruelty-free beauty bloggers. We are also open to people who are only thinking of going cruelty-free and we also welcome non-bloggers into the chat. It's Thursday 9-10pm GMT on Twitter. Come join us!
BeautyHow long have you been cruelty-free?
I made the decision in the summer of 2012, and now I can safely say 90% of my beauty purchases are not tested on animals.
How do you feel about parent companies?
I try and avoid these products where possible, but don't actively boycott either. I have the usual reasons (still sends a message etc) but I am also sensitive to the financial/operational reasons as to why some companies might 'sell out' i.e. if they weren't bought over they may cease to exist completely.
Are you a natural/free from beauty user?
It's a common misconception, but I am not a 'natural' beauty user. I am interested in natural beauty products but I don't exclusively use natural products.
Is your hair colour natural?
Not completely. My natural hair colour is a chestnut brown which looks a bit red under certain lights. I highlight it using Lush Caca Rouge henna hair dye which provides more redness. I've been dying my hair so long I regularly just call myself a redhead.
Do you have any intolerances/allergies?
I have a self-diagnosed soya intolerance. It doesn't affect my life that much.
Other Animal Welfare
How do you feel about medical testing?
I still take human life over animal life, so I relax my opinions on this matter. There's a difference between life-saving drugs and a bloody lipstick! I consider cosmetic surgery (unless it is done for medical reasons - I actually had cosmetic surgery as a kid) to be unethical from both an animal-welfare and corporate stand point (this is an industry that makes money off people's insecurities).
