The Daily Face: Cruelty Free Edition

Girls with glasses

Happy Tuesday darlings! It's been a wee bit longer than I'd hoped since my last blog post, but island life up in Shetland is treating me well and we are halfway through the shoot now. Only 10 more days and I'll be reunited with my furbabies and Pete. The anxiety has been rearing its ugly head a tad more than usual, but I'm lucky to be surrounded by a great team on this job who have been looking out for me and we've been having a really nice time together. Exploring all over Shetland (it is insanely beautiful, with scenery and white beaches to take your breath away) along with eating/drinking our body weight in seafood and Shetland Reel Gin. We've got this weekend off, so I'm hoping to take a wildlife boat trip on Saturday to spy a closer look at Puffins, Seals and Otters, and then Sunday I've got another horse riding trek booked. You can follow my adventures over on Instagram (click here) and I'm thinking of doing a travel post about Shetland once I'm home. It really is an absolutely stunning place! Anyways, it recently dawned on me that although I mention cruelty free makeup all the time on here, I've never done a full 'daily face' type post. So, here's a rundown of my absolute favourite cruelty free brands which I use on my face every single day.

There ain't no party like a doggy birthday party

Dog Cake Smash

I have been desperate to write this post ever since the weekend that (you heard it right) Sheri and I threw a joint first birthday party for Bronson and Olive! That's me just settled in to my new home in Shetland for the next month as we're filming a part of the show up here, so I've finally got time to sit down and share the pups fun filled day at Vet Creche. I'm missing my furry babies and Pete tonnes already, but the photos from the party put the BIGGEST smile on my face. You'll see exactly why...

Come gather in my lungs, Scottish wind

Exploring Scotland

I'm pretty sure by now that most of you are well aware of my love for Scotland and how easy it is to explore the great outdoors here, generally less than an hours drive outside of Glasgow. Well that's exactly what myself, Lynsay and Lori did a few weekends ago. We've all been super busy this year, with work, house renovations and general life goings on, so a little girly weekend away was just what we all needed. We hopped in the car to Gourock, got a ferry over to Dunoon, and after just an hour of leaving home we had arrived at our Argyll Holidays cabin in Hunters Quay.
