Vegetarian Fashionista

Because vegetarians can be beautiful. And fashionistas can care.

Lazy. With a sweet tooth. And a vegetarian.

So. Because it's Summer, and though there is a distinct lack of sun in my part of the land, I still have that "summer feeling". You know, like you can't do anything but read Agatha Christie novels and blog? And maybe, if you can bother to reach the remote, some TV? And you also want something sweet? Well, maybe you don't feel like that, but I do. So, here's a nice vegetarian chocolatety treat. That only takes a few minutes. And has me feeling about five mushing it up. And then has me dispairing at all the chocolate beneath my nails. Anyway.
Chocolate Nutty Easy Fudge
Peanut butter
Cocoa powder
Instructions: Pour all ingredients in bowl until they taste right. Mush together. If no one is looking (or, if they are, like me) act like a five year old letting the stuff drip from your fingers. Taste frquently to make sure it's right. Mmmmm. Where was I? Oh, yeah. The recipe. Once it's all nice and tasty put in fridge for a few hours. (Don't worry, you can still taste it every while.) Once hard, eat. Don't put too much sugar in it, like I did. Otherwise it goes gritty. If you have a tiny put left over, melt with in a saucepan with water. Chocolate mousse. Mmmm.

According to my poll

Only 4 people have voted. One of them is me. So, out of the 15 people who have visited, only three have visited. Two are fashionistas but not vegetarians, and one person is neither. So I'm the only vegetarian on my blog? Sacre bleu!

Search for lip gloss

Right now I'm searching for lip gloss. Now, much as I love Burts Bees (even more so now they're sold at my local health food shop) I have do have a problem with them: WHY IS THE MAKE-UP SO WEIRD? Seriously. I mean, their Lipbalm Shimmers are in pretty weird colours. I DON'T WANT TO WEAR EGGPLANT. However, that said, their Champagne is gorgeous. BUT...
I don't think I could get away with it at school, which has a strict NO MAKE-UP policy. Boo. And I think they'd notice that gorgeous shimmery lilacy colour. So that's out. Does anyone have any suggestions for lip gloss that's affordable and has no animal ingredients/testing?

*gold star*
Burts Bees Beeswax Lipbalm
I am a HUGE fan of Burts Bees. There's no animal testing, the only animal ingredient they use is lanolin, which is extracted from sheeps wool, so I feel is OK to use. It's not petroleum based like most lip balms, which in the long time actually DRY OUT your skin. It's got a lovely tingle when you put it on. It smells like peppermint, which is a huge plus, as it means it masks any bad breath. (V. good for those of us who hate having to eat mints all the time!) All that AND it makes your lips lovely and soft. I'm in love.
