I’m Chrissie, I’m old enough to remember a ‘peace’ sign is actually the CND logo but young enough to get away with wearing Cat Woman Converse. I’ll still be wearing them when I’m 60 tbh!
Cruelty free and Sustainable Beauty
I don’t use any beauty, personal care or household products that have been tested on animals and I review every cruelty-free beauty item that I buy, good or bad. I’m also trying to be as sustainable as possible and have managed to reduce the amount of single use plastic (and plastic in general) that I buy.
I sometimes have a soft grunge/goth or urban sense of style and natural ‘resting-bitch-face’ but I’m surprisingly adorkable, when you get to know me.
Veggie and Free-from Food
I have food intolerances to gluten & dairy and blog about vegetarian foods but I have a cheat day every so often if it’s a choice between gf and df on a menu. I have found some amazing plant-based alternatives to milk chocolate, ice cream, cheese, pizza and faux meat though, which I’m always happy to share with you on this blog.
It’s been assumed a fair bit (by Dr’s and tutors) that I have Aspergers and ADHD but I’ve never got tested. I don’t care much why I am the way I am (although me being neurodiverse makes so much sense now), I’m just glad I’m me! I also have the disabilities Dyspraxia and Hypermobility Syndrome and an Auto-immune disease, all of which make me chronically fatigued and randomly effect my special awareness, coordination, memory, concentration and memory ;o)
