You should all know by now that I love animals, and am a huge supporter of using cruelty-free beauty products. Going cruelty-free in my usage of beauty f=products has left me with a cleaner conscious. I am also feeling way more informed on the goings on behind-the-scenes of the makings of the beauty products and brands I personally use. I also seem to have a bit of a varied collection of friends at work and just life who are Vegan, Pescatarian and Vegetarian. I have been having many conversations in our downtime at work about values and why they chose that particular lifestyle, whether it was a conscious decision or just an unconscious action. These many chats about animal welfare & rights, eating habits & decisions, and the questioning and challenging of my own values have moved me to make a very conscious lifestyle decision.
