Cruelty Free Beauty ♥ Lifestle
Hello and welcome to my little corner on the internet that is dedicated to cruelty free beauty and lifestyle. My name is Mae Polzine, and I'm 24 years old living in Minnesota, United States. I went completely cruelty free for all things beauty in 2016 and have wanted to share everything in regards to that as well as things about my life, photography, blogging, and more. For more information about what brands are cruelty free, check out my Cruelty-Free Guides. If any of this sounds interesting to you, please subscribe and join the Bugsy family! I also offer stock photo packs if you want to up your game. Check out my out my shop page for stock photo packs for more information on that! Like what I do on this blog, support me on Patreon so I can continue to put out amazing content.
If it were up to me I would wear pajamas every day, or a pair of sweat pants and a hoodie. But I can't exactly wear that to work as I would probably get fired for dress inappropriately for the office. So how do you get the comfort of pajamas when you have to dress more presentable? And if you're like me, I sit at a desk for nine works while I'm working. So the thought of tight clothing is so uncomfortable. Along with wearing heels, they just rub in the wrong way on most days. And after several years of experimenting with my style I've come up with ten techniques to dress comfortable yet stylish at the same time.
This is something I've been debating on for the past few months. I find myself always online either on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or blogging. So I'm setting a goal for myself that starting September 1st until October 1st, I'm going to be completely offline. Now I am prepping blog posts for every day while I'm offline as well as some YouTube videos, but these will be un-monitored for the entire month. And I'm still panicking for this as I feel like I'm going to missing everything, but that's the exact reason why I need to take the entire month off. I'm too addicted to it. I stay up at night being online and it's the first thing I do when I wake up.
Having a high-end living space has never been easier. Thanks to so many inspirations online and with the help of your own imagination and creativity, you can arrange your home to look stylish yet cosy. The living room is the place where the entire family gathers and socializes among themselves and friends, so it's essential that you create a warm and inviting ambiance for everyone to enjoy. From the trendy colours through fashionable furniture and good lighting, your living room could look fabulous if you only choose all the features wisely and with attention to details.
I've had a lot of e.l.f. products in my makeup collection for ages that I've never touched. So I wanted to see if any of it was actually good and donate the rest. So this is a mixture of first impressions and just a tutorial overall. Some products definitely made the cut while others are going off to new homes. I had to seriously cut down the video too as it was an hour worth of footage. So hope you all enjoy!
Some days you only have a few minutes where you can afford to relax or have a minute to yourself amongst your busy schedule. From being completely tried up with work to house chores to family life, sometimes you don't have any time where you can be by yourself. So what can you do when you don't have any time to spare? I've been finding myself in this position for the last few weeks with huge work projects and trying to fit in the few house chores I can manage to get to in the reminder time frame. And I thought it would be a good idea to spare just a few ideas or ways to relax when you only have an hour to yourself.
I have been watching The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu for the past week or so. If you haven't seen the show, I'm not going to give any spoilers about what happened in the series but I will give a brief overview of what it's about. I have been really enjoying the show granted there are a lot of dark and messed up themes/topics that run throughout the show.
This is a new bath bomb Lush came out with. And by new I mean it's a redesign of a bath bomb they've had for quite some time. It's still called pink but has grown in size from 3.1 oz to 7.0 oz. The smaller size which had three flowers on top and going to be discontinued. So if you are in love with that bath bomb, fear not it's now bigger but everything else seems the same.
One of my makeup everyday staple is eyeliner ever since I was eleven years old. Much to my mother's disapproval but she couldn't stop me from having raccoon eyes for many years. And my overall eyeliner application has done better, I don't have raccoon eyes anymore but I can't say that some days my eyes don't go out of control. Especially when my wing goes from a kitten wing to an elephant wing. So I thought it would be a good idea to start a new series that instead of reviewing new products that I would just share the ones I always live in. So what better product to start with then the product that started it all for me.
Who doesn’t like hanging out by the pool or on a beach, with an ice cream and a cold drink while trying to catch some sun? Vacations are meant to help us relax after we’ve spent weeks and months stressing over work, but it isn’t always that easy to flip that ‘stress switch’ to ‘off’ position. Organizing a perfectly peaceful time-off sounds like a dream, but it also means that you have to put in some work. On the other hand, if you make a bit of effort before you get on the plane, you will be able to enjoy a perfect, stress-free vacation.
At the beginning of the years, I did a post called "In 5 Years Time..." And in eight months I have changed my mind on some of these goals. And I wanted to expand this to my 10 years goal. So in ten years I'll be 34 years old almost 35. When I did my five years goals, I honestly didn't have that many things besides the typical boring and rather vague things. But I'll reflected a lot on what I want out of the future and this is the first time in my life that I can actually imagine one. It's no longer a blank. So let's just start listing off all the things I wish to either accomplish or achieve in that time period.
Let's take a sort break from subcultures and focus on a single article of clothing that has a trend which comes in and out of fashion every few years. That being ripped jeans.
Lately I've been feeling really uninspired and unmotivated to blog or film videos for my main YouTube channel. I found myself wanting to only focus on my gaming blog/channel. But not the other so I really had to take like a week to figure out what I wanted to do. As I used to have so much passion to do both. However, some where down the line I lost that feeling. And both of them were for different reasons.
