So for the last few months, I’ve been using the Rimmel London Lasting Finish foundation and it worked fantastically until the last few weeks. The latest tube had started causing skin irritation and a tingling sensation all over my face as well as having a much more of an “orange” tint to it even though I used the same shade month after month.
A friend of mine who is also a make-up wizard mentioned the NYX Cosmetics line and how it was cruelty free – it falls into my lifestyle as I’m on the road to being vegan and spend all my free time at an animal rescue organisation helping to fix the damage humans cause to the innocent furkids – and also it is completely safe.
I did a tester on my skin and waited 24 hours but viola! NO REACTION!
I was so happy and relieved that it hadn’t caused any burn or break outs or dry and flaky skin.
So I went and had a mini shopping haul and purchased NYX foundation, concealer, powder, liquid liner, setting spray and primer.
Combine this amazing brand with my amazing Nimue face wash and moisturiser and I now have healthy and happy skin again.
NYX has great coverage and great products and me having such a sensitive skin, it also keeps it clear after a full day of wear.
Let’s just say I’m a happy customer!
I was so excited by the product that I had a little play and experiment session. 😀
Happy skin and cruelty free make-up makes me a very happy Megan.
Happy New Year to everyone reading this and everyone in the blogosphere! 2017 is going to be a good and prosperous year. I’m sure of it.
The last 6 months of 2016 were trying for me.
I had final exams in that time period, work was hectic and I spent every free moment at the Lucky Lucy Foundation (LLF) animal rescue shelter. I adopted a new furry, a gorgeous little female tuxedo kitten (re)named Phoenix. I started my own pet sitting company and achieved another certification in animal nutrition. My oldest furkid, a 13 year old Border Collie named Domino, was diagnosed with epilepsy and is now on a treatment course for that.
I changed my diet to vegetarian because after intense research, I read that meat actually aggravates Arthritis pain and is linked to increased pain levels due to other pain related auto-immune illnesses.
Stress levels were through the roof, my health was a little wonky and pain consumed my every moment. I escaped to Lucky Lucy Foundation to regain some form of sanity and to relax and forget.
All I can say is I am glad that I got through it with a smile on my face and my last month of 2016 was full of blessings. I had the blessing of being fully booked with clients right up until 07 January 2017.
I have a big year ahead of me with studies and things and goals I will achieve this year and I am so incredibly positive about what 2017 entails for me.
I plan on building on my dream of veterinary science, building my business even more and finding a place of my own and finally striving to where I want to be.
All I can say is I have never felt better and my energy levels are so much higher and my pain is much better.
2017 is going to be a fantastic year with immense amounts of blessings.
Happy New Year!
There is so much pressure on women to fit into this idea of what a woman needs to act like and look like and be like and that is something that plagues the lives of women of all ages.

For those that don’t know me, Hi, I’m Megan. Here is how my story of self-discovery and acceptance started with the website www.luckylucy.org Continue reading
I hope you have a minute. I want to share my open letter to my bully with you.
That shortness of breath, the whooshing sound in your ears and the sudden feeling like the world is too loud and the sun is too bright, that controls so much of my day.
When my parents separated, my mom and brother and myself moved to Port Elizabeth for a few years to start new and fresh. I was young, around 3 years old when we moved.
