The Happy List #9

Instagram: @whatlaurendidtoday

Welcome to the first Happy List of 2016! I would say I'm surprised that it's taken me this long to do one but I'm not - I was kind of waiting to do one until I felt something that resembled happiness for longer than fifteen minutes. But it would appear that that time has come (yay!) so allow me to fill you in on some of the things that have inspired this lovely feeling in me recently.

What's In My Makeup Bag (Cruelty-Free)

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT TIME: My entire make-up routine is now completely cruelty-free! I had been using a non-CF foundation up until recently, purely because I couldn't find a vegan foundation that was within my budget, offered a shade that was light enough for me and worked well with my skin. But the day has come and I'm now safe in the knowledge that everything I apply hasn't brought a single ounce of pain to any animal. (P.S Thank you to Brianne for the recommendation!)

I'm typing this post up on my new iPad, which incidentally won't let me download Blogger as an app, meaning this could all be one grammatically disgusting and structurally unsound piece of text but hey. For some reason opening up my laptop to blog seems a bit daunting to me at the moment, I think maybe because of all that comes along with it - the photo editing, the researching, the tweet scheduling, the EFFORT. This seems infinitely more casual, especially because I'm going to be using an unedited photo that has 0 relevance to the post, which I just found in my iPhone photo library.
