I often find myself struggling with how to properly contact companies about their stance on being cruelty free and vegan. Firstly, there is a difference between being cruelty free and vegan, and secondly, there are tons of loopholes that allow companies to promote those labels without being one hundred percent honest.
One of the main things I am always concerned about is laundry. I have never had such a need for loose change like I do now. Most college students do not get the luxury of having their own washer and dryer. I am lucky enough to share a single washer and dryer within my four unit apartment complex.
As someone with combination skin that changes with the seasons, I’m always looking for new beauty products. The products I use in the morning are different than what I use at night and very different than what I use in the summer vs. the winter. I also need to “change it up” every so often or else my skin gets too dry or stays oily. Like I said, combination skin.
When I first went vegan three years ago, the first thing I did was take to Facebook and ask if anyone had good websites to check out for recipes. My old nanny, who has been vegan for at least seven years, immediately linked me to Post Punk Kitchen. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is hands down one of my favorite food bloggers and author. I have not tried making her dishes with a budget in mind but I’m sure some recipes can be made with low budget ingredients.
