My Cruelty-Free Journey :)

I have been rather wishy-washy about my choices and decisions but I have known one thing about myself for a long time now and that was that I cared about animal welfare. Honestly, I may have been more adamant about making better decisions as a child but with puberty and wanting to fit in, a lot changed. I’m finally taking the path I have headed towards time and time again. I want to protect animals from unnecessary cruelty that they face in labs in the name of beauty.

It is going to be a long time before I can claim to be only using cruelty-free products because I have a truckload of not so kind products to get through. As a broke college student, I cannot afford to replace all my skincare items stat in the name of a good cause but this is going to be an ongoing process.

In a perfect world, we would not test on animals and torture to further in scientific research but that will simply not be the case ever. We, humans, are the most entitled and self-centered species ever. However, I don’t see the need to experiment on animals for the sake of beauty and makeup. Medical research to cure the next pandemic is justified to me but for makeup, it just seems like unnecessary suffering.

Do you have an opinion on the matter? I’d love to hear from you guys.



Valentine’s Day Drama

A lot has been ruined by this ostentatious and commercialized holiday with no value whatsoever. But Bailey’s… the strawberries and cream Bailey’s is the worse thing that could happen.

Moving on, I am a sad lonely girl on Valentine’s days by all definitions. I am planning on drinking a glass of wine and binge eating a box of chocolates as I scroll through Instagram. Its going to be annoying day on any social media.

So, if you have time to spare or need to buy last minute gift do watch this videos.

I made dinner… for guests

I love having people over but honestly I hate the work that comes along with it. Like preparing a meal and the cleanup, ugh…

So, I decided to google “simple dinner recipes” and I found this,  Meatless Italian Macaroni Bake . It is a 5 ingredient recipe. Five, only five ingredients including the macaroni.

This was the extent of the grocery shopping I had to do!

It was a simple recipe, I mean how wrong can you go with 5 ingredients. But as I was the one preparing the meal, I was worried that I was going to starve my guests. It was an easy recipe to follow and a really quick meal to prepare. All you need is about 30 minutes.

Okay! It tasted better than it looks.


This was the result in my kitchen. There was a lot of bubbling and melting on the top of the pasta when I pulled it out of the oven, (so you know its good).

However, I did not season the dish as the recipe did not call for salt or pepper and that is the only negative feedback I have for this recipe. Maybe it is expected that one would season their pasta but hey I’m a newbie. My guests however enjoyed the meal with a pinch of salt, literally.

This nice lady helped me out at Hy-vee as my very poor grocery shopping skills were put to test 🙂

If you think there is a simple recipe that amateur chef like will fail at, please comment the link down below. I think this is really fun.
