Four of the Best US National Parks

I recently got back from Banff and it made me really want to check out some US National Parks. Today we have a guest post in collaboration with 1Cover Travel Insurance that’s going to break down the 4 best national parks- which seems like a great place for me to start my research!

Who doesn’t love a National Park? They are places of such natural beauty, and a prime location for adventure. From hiking to snorkelling, star gazing to relaxing in the natural hot springs, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Just remember to check which activities are covered by your insurance provider before setting off because some of them have a high-risk factor.

I recently threw my friend Jessica Jay (who does my gorgeous eyelash extensions) a bachelorette pool party and wanted to share some ideas!

Why Cruelty-Free Products Not Only Benefit Our Beloved Animals

Today we have an awesome collaboration guest post all about Cruelty Free beauty products! If you want to read more about cruelty free makeup and beauty products be sure to check out my post on Makeup Made in the USA which lists if the lines are cruelty free or not. Enjoy!

The beauty industry has risen to be one of the biggest commercial industries. However, there are still some cosmetics companies that do animal testing. While Korean beauty companies like Missha take pride in their company ethics, practices and values, there are still a lot of globally-available companies that pay for animal testing in China. You’d be surprised how a lot of these animal-cruel products still hit the shelf.

Animal cruelty is a serious offense but some companies still spend money on having their products tested on animals. There are a lot of reasons behind this practice, and this kind of testing has been done by top beauty brands for centuries. While some companies have stopped this kind of testing and resorted to healthier alternatives, there are still those that have stayed in the dark ages of product testing.

Here are some reasons why you should be supporting companies with cruelty-free products:
