If you’re new to vegan beauty or makeup, I highly recommend giving a seasonal subscription service, like @vegancuts Makeup Box a try! 💄🌻✨
Every 3 months, you’ll receive a box full of vegan makeup delivered right to your doorstep 📦
Reasons to subscribe to #VegancutsMakeupBox:
🌼 you get to experiment and try new vegan products and brands!
🌼 it’s cheaper than buying each product on their own — you get full-size products (not dinky samples), usually over $100+ in value but you only pay $37-$55. The price depends on where it’s being shipped to (US, Canada, or International) and the length of the subscription.
🌼 in addition to all of the products being cruelty-free and vegan, they’re also natural and non-toxic.
🌼 you get to customize the box and pick colors that suit you best!
🌼 it’s a seasonal subscription so you’ll be sent products that go with the change in season and weather.
🌼 do good while looking good — partial proceeds from each Vegancuts Spring Makeup Box goes towards Wildlife Victoria rescue in Australia to help animals affected by the horrific bush fires.

Please read till the end 🌿 I recently bought these plant-based scour pads from @fullcircle, they're made from walnut shells and non-toxic materials 🧽 They work almost as good as plastic/synthetic scour pads and does the job of gently removing most dirt while not scratching my pans ⭐️ They were also made in Canada 🇨🇦 and Full Circle is certified B Corporation with a commitment to reduce their environmental impact, claiming their products use less energy and emit fewer greenhouse gases in production. 🌱 This all sounded great, which was why I bought them as I wanted a plastic-free and compostable alternative -- BUT, upon further research.. their website states their walnut shell scour pads are made of: Walnut shells AND recycled plastic! 😔 Making them actually NOT compostable.
Ahh yes, I should have done more research before buying and also, why wasn't recycled plastic listed on their packaging!?
On the surface, these may be a better option than other synthetic scour pads or sponges on the market as it's made from *recycled* plastic but I totally fell for the greenwashing here. Yes -- I, too make mistakes! 😬 I'm posting this mishap of mine to show you that living sustainably is a journey, and lessons will be learned along the way. This has taught me to do more research than just reading the product's packaging or an online retailer's product description before buying... And now that I know better, I can do better! 🌿
🌻 What eco-friendly or plastic-free sponges do u recommend?

Some grocery stores have temporarily banned the use of reusable bags fear of the potential risk of further spreading the virus. Instead, stores will be handing out plastic bags to customers, free of charge.
✧ Totally understandable given our current situation, so this is a great time to make sure all of our reusable bags are washed and if needed, repaired 🌿
✧ ᴇᴄᴏ-ᴛɪᴘ: For bigger and bulkier items, I always like to use boxes (the grocery stores always have these on hand and they're totally free!) and when I forget to bring my reusable bags, I try to limit the number of items I buy to however many I can carry in my hands and out the store.
✧ Buying produce (like leafy greens 🥬) without a bag is another story... I’d love to know, do you have any tips or tricks for reducing our plastic consumption while buying produce during these times?

Yes Way, Rosé – Miss Frankie Nail Polish Review

This post may contain affiliate links.

Can you tell I’m really into pink nail polish lately? I’ve just been wearing different shades of pink on my nails lately from pastel pinks, neon pinks, bright pinks, nude pinks, and everything in between!

So, I’m continuing my current obsession of pretty pink nails with Yes Way, Rosé by Miss Frankie.

All of Miss Frankie nail polishes are cruelty-free, vegan, and 10-Free. I’ve reviewed a few of their nail polish colors before including I Prefer Champagne, Hello Lover, and Did You Say Prosecco?

Yes Way, Rosé – Miss Frankie

Color: Yes Way, Rosè is described as a creamy soft baby pink, with white undertone.

Price: AUD$22 or USD$14.90

Miss Frankie’s Yes Way Rosé Nail Polish

Formula: First coat is quite sheer but becomes opaque after 2 coats. I have on 3 coats of Yes Way, Rosé for a full-coverage finish and to ensure I covered my nail line. A nice smooth and even application. Non-streaky. No brush strokes.

Wear Test: lasted 3 days without chipping.

Comments: This is a very pretty baby pink nail polish color! I was worried at first when the first coat turned out very sheer but it’s easy to build up to full-coverage. I might’ve been able to get away with just two coats.

I applied Yes Way, Rosé with Miss Frankie’s Bond With Me Base Coat and Make Me Shine Top Coat, and found that the nail polish takes a bit of time to dry completely. Not sure if it’s the Top Coat or the nail polish color itself. But that’s something to keep in mind.

All of Miss Frankie nail polishes are cruelty-free, vegan, 10-free, breathable, and made in Australia.

meaning, Miss Frankie polishes are free from: Formaldehyde, Tosylamide formaldehyde resin, Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, Parabens, Fragrances, Animal derived ingredients
