Hi, I’m Marie and welcome to my blog!  Here you will find loads of information about vegan and green beauty and lifestyle.  I love stuff that is: Vegan, Cruelty-free, Natural, Budget-friendly, Organic, Plastic-free, Zero-waste, Local, Small Biz, Handmade, Sustainable, Recyclable, Fair Trade, Allergen-free, GMO free, Nano free, and Palm Oil free.  Oh and if possible: looks pretty, smells nice, and actually works!

I rarely find products that are all of these things – but the more boxes a product ticks, the better!

Let the quest begin!
