Now that wet n wild...

What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! 😒 This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law 💔 I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China 😑

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! 🐰🌍💕// 📸 via @fequalshq

Interview with Cruelty Free Kitty!

I am so exci7687d66b7097045597efababa42ba80fted to share this interview with you all because I have been a loyal follower of Cruelty Free Kitty since the day I stumbled upon her site!! With her “Ultimate Guide to Cruelty Free Makeup” repinned almost 5,000 times.. I’m sure you’ve heard of her too and at one time or another have relied on her guides as the go-to resource to living cruelty free.

I know I’m not alone in saying this, but this gurl is truly an inspiration and played a huge role in my journey to living and loving a cruelty free lifestyle!

So, it was only natural for me to want to know more about the beautiful person who has taken the time and effort to helping and inspiring strangers (like me!) to make kinder and informed choices!

I hope you enjoy learning more about Suzi, the fabulous sassy animal lover behind CrueltyFreeKitty.com, as much as I did!

CRUELTY-FREE LIFE

What was it that inspired you to go cruelty-free?

Simply put, empathy. I’ve loved animals since I was a little kid. Even as a teenager when visiting someone new, I’d pay way too much attention to their pets. Maybe you guys can relate to this! I first went vegetarian when I was 14. It took a few tries and there were many changes along the road, but that’s when I started my cruelty-free journey.

What was the biggest obstacle that you faced when going cruelty-free/vegan?

First of all, I don’t identify with being “cruelty-free” or “vegan”. I’m strictly opposed to factory farming and animal testing, and those two things are perceived as “normal” in most cultures today. They challenge something so well established in our society that it’s hard to get these messages across to most people. That’s what the biggest obstacle is, I would say: feeling alone in my choices. Starting crueltyfreekitty.com definitely helped me find like-minded people!

What do you enjoy most about being cruelty free/vegan? Besides the fact that I’m contributing to making a difference in the world, having a plant-based diet benefits my health and makes me feel great! I also love using natural and organic cosmetics.

Favourite all time vegan food/recipe? Caramelized quince with pecans and almond milk ice cream. Heavenly! I sometimes use a frozen banana to make the ice cream and it works great.


GETTING TO KNOW SUZI

Favourite song at the moment: Mellow: “Lately” by Memoryhouse. Indie: “Love Is To Die” by Warpaint. Upbeat: “Habits” by Tove Lo. But only the remix. It’s so good!

Currently reading: I just started “Invent it, sell it, bank it!” by Lori Greiner. A great book for all girlbosses-to-be and creative types!

Favourite TV shows: The Office and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia! I also like Parks & Recreation, How I Met Your Mother, and Community. Some dramas I enjoyed are True Detective, Breaking Bad, and I’m really digging the first season of Better Call Saul that just ended.

Furthest you’ve ever been away from home: I don’t have a home! #thirdculturekid. But seriously, I’ve moved around since I was a kid and love to travel. I guess the farthest from where I was born would be California.

Hidden talents: I can bend my fingers in ways that freak some people out! I also used to be decent at drawing but I stopped.

Favourite veg*n celebrity: Grimes! I love the attention she brought to animal testing recently, and I also love her music.


BLOGGER LIFE

Was there a particular time in your life that you can recall that lead you to creating crueltyfreekitty.com?

I noticed a lack of information online when it comes to cruelty-free cosmetics, even though more and more sites are dedicated to veganism and ethical living. I had the passion, so I made it a goal to fill that void! I knew nothing about blogging, WordPress, or CSS at the time. I learned all those things as I went, and I’m so grateful I did!

What honest advice do you have for someone starting or thinking about going cruelty free? You have to read about animal rights and animal welfare in order to form your own set of beliefs. And also justify your beliefs. This makes it much easier to transition. Also, never settle for a cheap dupe of your favorite luxury lipstick! Find high quality items that are cruelty-free, or you’ll go right back.

 

What’s your biggest blog related pet peeve? Dishonest reviews. That’s just not cool. We need bloggers for their unbiased reviews!

What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve? Littering! Fuck that.

Besides living and sharing a cruelty free lifestyle … what else are you passionate about? Cultures and languages. I’d love to be a digital nomad and travel a lot! I’m also passionate about art in all forms.

What’s next for you and crueltyfreekitty.comI have a few surprises up my sleeve! There’s one specific thing I’m going to launch this month, and it’s hopefully going to bring the cruelty-free community together. I’ll also keep adding new brands to my cruelty-free list and hosting giveaways for my awesome readers!
