Hey Howl Pack

It’s Mae Polzine! I started this blog back in 2015 to be a place where I could be creative and share things that I love. So, I post a variety of things. I stream a variety of things (gaming, body paint, art, etc.) on Twitch multiple times a week, with stream highlights and all VODs posted on my YouTube Channel.

Lastly, join our Discord to chat with other pack members. We have a great and supportive community over there. I love talking with everyone in Discord as it’s a great way to connect. Also, I offer Twitch emotes, sub badges, and moreover on my shop page as well as my own merch.

Guide to Cruelty-Free Cosmetics: Researching Brands

In the last post of this mini-series we’re going to be going over how to research brands to determine if they are cruelty-free or not. This is typically how I approach brands when I’m doing my own research for my guide.

But it still is a good idea to ask just to make sure everything lines up to what you’re seeing elsewhere.

That being Covergirl pulling out of the Chinese market and changing their animal testing policy to not do it. And that’s going to send ripples through the industry, one way or the other depending on how it goes. So, in part, as a cruelty-free community we need to ensure it goes well so other brands get the message.

Guide to Cruelty-Free Cosmetics: The History of Animal Testing

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be doing a lot of posts on animal testing and why going cruelty free is the way everyone should go in a mini series I’m titling “Guide to Cruelty-Free Cosmetics.” And why there should be an overall ban on animal testing. So, let’s begin with the history of animal testing, and why it’s a relic of the past that needs to be ended as there are so many easier and cheaper ways to test products that don’t involve animals.

A Beginner’s Guide to Using iPhone Camera

For the next photography guide in this series, I thought we would go over taking photos on an iPhone as this is what I used for well over a year in the beginning for all photos on my blog. And occasionally I still use for blog/Instagram photos. As when I’m out and about, I don’t really want to carry my expensive DSLR camera with me. So how can you get high-quality photographs using your iPhone?

A Beginner’s Guide to A Color Story

For the next Beginner’s Guide is A Color Story, which is a phone application that I love using! If I take any photo on my phone and want to send it to Instagram right away I will always edit the image through this application. Sometimes I’ll even send photos I took on my DSLR to my phone just to I can edit in this application over Photoshop. Granted I do love them equally. So how do you use this application?
