You’ve cat to be kitten me
I recently saw a post on Facebook talking about how MAC cosmetics claims to be ‘animal cruelty free’ but still decides to sell their make up in China. China requires by law that every beauty product is tested on animals before it can be sold in stores. Animal testing isn’t necessary and luckily there are a lot of make up brands that do NOT test on animals. I love the lists on http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/list-of-cruelty-free-brands/ (English) or http://naoki.nl/nederlandse-dierproefvrije-cosmetica-lijst/ (Dutch) to check all the brands that are animal cruelty free and vegan. I personally love the make up of Tarte, Urban Decay, Essence and Catrice. And the hair dyes I use are from Arctic Fox, Manic Panic and Directions. The laundry detergent, dish soap and cleaning supplies we use are from Ecover (started in Belgium) and I recommend Seepje (started in the Netherlands) for my Dutch followers as well.
I got this adorable tote bag while Martin and I went to the cat cafe ‘Kopjes‘ in Amsterdam. If you ever go to visit Amsterdam I recommend eating some cake and drink their home-made lemonade and cuddle the cute kitties they have! You’ll have to make a reservation since it’s very busy but it’s worth it!
Animals are friends and equals, not lab rats.

Ironically my cat loves the taste of make up, so whenever I do my makeup and pick him up he needs to lick my face..
For today I chose an amazing song from ‘The Cinematic Orchestra’, it reminds me of spring and the beauty of nature, beginning a new adventure. Riding horses in the long grass in Ireland, between the mountains and rivers, while the sun stands high and the wild animals are exploring the new summer landscapes, searching for the treasures hiding beneath the snow for the winter.
Is animal cruelty free make up something you keep in mind when buying makeup?
