When it comes to Christmas presents i am not much for sharing what i got – i may have done it in the past years. But sometimes i feel like it’s just a way for people to show off what they got and to boast about all the fancy gifts they have received. This however leads to comparison among people and all i can think about is the people who don’t celebrate Christmas, the people who don’t have families to celebrate with or those who can barely afford food on Christmas nonetheless gifts. Not to mention that i find it all extremely commercialised… so even if i like giving gifts because it is something i have thought about specifically for the person and i like seeing how happy it makes them. I am not much for receiving gifts myself… not on days like Christmas or my birthday anyway. Instead i would much rather receive random gifts of any given day haha. One of those gifts which usually is bought because the person saw something they knew i would like or needed and there was no “reason” or expectation to give gifts.
However for Christmas my mum got me this huge set of Liz Earle beauty and hair products – which i had not expected. I had asked for one or two beauty products and a concealer as it’s soemthing i need but don’t buy myself. So it was amazing to recieve such a huge gift box. Also my mum knows that it is important for me that the products i use are vegan and Cruelty free and that is exactly what these products are… or well, 2 of the products contian beeswax and are therefore not vegan. However i am going to keep them… mostly because i don’t feel like selling them and i know i will use them. Of course if you are militant and extreme with your veganism you may not think that is right, but for me the little beeswax really isn’t that big deal and in the future i will buy a replacement which is both cruelty free and completely vegan, but for now it is ok!
We all make our choices!
I have yet to try any of the products, so i guess i will write about them in a few weeks time when i have gotten the chance to test them and see how they work!!
