Beauty Products Not Tested on Animals

#BuyTheBunny: 7 Beauty Products

#BuyTheBunny – that is our theme for the month! Why? Because animal-testing is fucking despicable and unnecessary. Is that a good enough reason for you?

There are a lot of beauty products on the market. The majority of the products that are absolutely in-your-face are tested on animals [READ: TRESemme, Revlon, L’Oreal, Garnier, Almay, Neutrogena, and a ton more]. If you are not aware of the cruelty of animal testing, you may want to educate yourself a bit. If you are, then you know how frustrating it can be to find cruelty-free products! And dammit, you will not give into the companies who DO test! The struggle is real, folks. After searching for and testing a number of brands, I am glad to finally have a number of go-to products. This week, I’d love to share them with you. Get on board with us and #BuyTheBunny!!

Vegan Fall Boots Under $50

18 Cruelty-Free Fall Boots Under $50

With autumn in the air, and crunchy, colorful leaves on the ground, I am itching to get a near pair of boots! I mean, come on. We all love a good pair of boots. They are perfect with our favorite leggings and flannel button down, but also SUPER COMFY. If you are anything like me, you are a flats-kinda-girl. Heels are nice, and I wish I could wear them more often! But I just… can’t. I feel too tall, and my feet feel like they are dying a slow and horrible death. So, I dress comfy.

I have been doing quite a bit of research on vegan boots for this fall, and I figured I would share my findings with you. To my [pleasant] surprise, they are actually REALLY affordable. You just have to look! So without further adieu, here is my round up of cruelty-free fall boots [and I even included some with heels ;)].
