There was a time when I used to be ignorant, and completely oblivious to the truth. Maybe I was turning a blind eye to what was actually happening, but I was blissful in my ignorance. Like many people who still use this argument, I thought what I put into my body was a ‘personal choice’. But is it really ‘personal’, when, in your arrogance, your taste buds affect the lives of other sentient beings? And when I say ‘affect’, I mean torture, rape, and slaughter? Logic would say no.
But what if there was a way, a lifestyle, that could make you thrive, spare the lives of thousands, and salvage the environment? The vegan diet is the only diet that has been proven to be able to not only prevent, but also reverse the world’s top killers like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease – and like our dear Dr Greger says, shouldn’t this be our default diet until proven otherwise?
These three top book picks have aided me in learning more about nutrition, and gave me inspiration to cook some pretty tasty meals, if I say so myself.

March has brought us some pretty cool tunes, but it was also merciless with the mediocre ones. We discuss Kendrick Lamar’s surprise compilation album, ZAYN’s highly anticipated Mind Of Mine and up and coming artist Låpsley. Warning: mixed feelings.

Yep, totally making a reference to Batman v Superman in the title (which you will have to watch for yourself to see where you stand; I’m still on the fence about it) and please do tell me your opinions on it in the comments!
Anyway, this post will explore which matte foundation is better. Both drugstore, both hyped, both claiming to hold 24H – but which one does the job better?

The rules of the game have changed. Gone are the times when I used to swear by the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer.
I present to you my new holy grail concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind (in Light). Yes, I’m totally aware I am approximately 359 years behind and everyone started using this in the Prehistoric Era most probably, but yet here I am, praising it.

Wearing a bold lip sometimes requires courage and self-confidence… or at least for me it does. I’ve always been dreading the red lipstick, maybe because I thought it would draw attention on me and being the centre of attention isn’t always my thing. I also hated the fact that it’s high maintenance, as it needs constant checking in the mirror and reapplying and apparently, that’s too much responsibility for me. Story of my life. Learning how to properly apply lipstick so that it lasts was a game-changer for me.

Everyone, grab your calendars and mark this day: the 14th of May – Diana went out. I know, I can’t believe it either. But what would the average student do when exams are over and uni is finished? My answer would be “Hibernate?” but nope, I’ve been informed that they usually party. So hold on to your hat, because this is a wild one.

I may not exactly have aging issues, as I am around my 20s, but this product is not only targeted for ladies with wrinkles (even though, I admit, I start having a few around my eyes and lips). However, it is always better to prevent than to fight.

I promised a post of another Lush bubble bar I got, so here it is! But to be honest with you, I looked online for hours, trying to find the name of this one, but it wasn’t anywhere and I apologise! If any of you know how it’s called, I would be grateful! (The lady at the till asked me if I want them labelled but I was like “naah”)

Let’s be honest, Lush is everyone’s favourite. While people are going crazy over the bath bombs, spamming my Tumblr dashboard with pictures of their amazing bath (and I’m being left here, in my dorm’s shower cabin *cries*), I am obsessing over this mask.
