Vegfest Haul – Clothes, Food, Beauty & Celebs

Vegfest Haul – Clothes, Food, Beauty & Celebs

Vegfest came to London on the 20-21 October and it did not disappoint. It’s crazy how busy these things get now that vegan has hit the mainstream. There were so many stalls covering beauty, food, health, clothes, accessories, art work and more. It was a big celebration of veganism and compassion. With many vegan celebs in attendance (Fat Gay Vegan, Earthling Ed, Evanna Lynch, King Cook Daily) I was absolutely ecstatic when I bumped into Tim Shieff, the vegan free runner that’s done recipes with Jamie Oliver, has had huge achievements on Ninja Warrior and has had his bum on the cover of Viva! magazine.

5 Gorgeous Vegan Candles 

5 Gorgeous Vegan Candles 

Are candles vegan? Not always – they can contain beeswax or stearic acid (usually from animal fat). Don’t worry though, there are plenty of vegan-friendly candles out there so you won’t have to miss out on burning any of your favourite scents.

Lily Flame

These gorgeous tin candles are really well scented and make fantastic gifts so I was super happy to hear that Lily Flame are vegan-friendly.
When contacted I received the following response: ‘Our candles are made using 65% Paraffin wax, 29% vegetable triglycerides (fats) to make the wax softer and 6% perfume. Our candles do not contain any animal products and we do not test them on animals.’

Review: SkinYoga Fresh Orange Body Mousse

Review: SkinYoga Fresh Orange Body Mousse

This Fresh Orange Body Mousse (available here) smells incredibly citrus and leaves your body feeling fresh. Softly uplifting, it’s wonderfully relaxing to massage this into your body whilst inhaling and exhaling slowly and deeply. Take your time to focus on each limb and rub the mousse onto your skin in circular movements. This is best used on warm, wet skin – so pause your shower once your pores have opened up and give your body the time and attention it deserves.
