NYX, BarryM & SleekMakeUp giveaway

OMG you guys, I know it took me so long to get to it but everything is finally on its way. If you don’t know, I reposted the poll results on the blog a day or two ago and you guys voted for a cruelty-free makeup giveaway. So on my way back to Barcelona,  I ordered my 2016-2017 favourite makeup items for one of you to try. All of them, except one, are products that I frequently use and have featured on the blog. I heard great things about the new Sleek Makeup Distorted Dreams palette and thought that it would be a nice touch (why not jump on the holographic trend right?) The Rules: Be subscribe to the blog and leave a comment on this post That’s it. Two comments will not count as two entries since I want everyone to have a fair chance to win. This giveaway is open to people in Europe, I will contact the winner personally and provide tracking info once everything has been sent out. Make sure I …

Horror Movies I just watched

Hi Everyone, I hope you are doing okay. I love horror movies. You must be all sick of hearing me talk about them but I just have to share. Whilst some of them are very good, most suck and do not deserve your time. So let me help you out and show you the movies I’ve watched and liked since my last horror movie related post. The Wailing  This movie is incredible and it is now available on Netflix. It is long (around 2h30 mins) but it builds the tension so beautifully that you will want to know what’s up in this village. PS: I think the ending will blow your mind. The Void Great main character, good monster thingy but if you do not like gory and graphic horror movies, I would save this one for later. This movie is completely different from the Wailing and will make you question everything you know about the world you live in. The Autopsy of Jane Doe This movie was the creepiest of them all for me …

June & the Blog: Picking items for the Giveaway

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing amazing. I am currently in Paris visiting my family and friends and I thought that it was the perfect time to finally announce when the giveaway would be happening and give you a chance to choose (from the list of items I have talked about before on the blog) what you would like in it. I am pushing back the giveaway to the end of June because I have tons of stuff to do in Paris, I have to start my dissertation, I will be leaving for Barcelona in about two weeks and I want to make sure I buy products that are in line with what I like, what you would like and my blog. The giveaway will be open for one week and all of Europe. To participate, you will just have to be subscribed to my blog and comment anything under the giveaway post. I wish I could include more of you. Hopefully, some future changes will allow me to do so. I was initially thinking …

Spring 2017 MakeUp: Keeping it simple

  Hey Everyone, I hope it is not too late to make a little spring makeup essential. I have been working on reducing the amount of makeup (and packaging) I wear. I want to focus on skincare more as summer is approaching (too fast) and the sun will damage my skin big time (just doing a little prevention you know). So lately I have been keeping it simple. Mascara, red lips and a touch of highlight. It has been amazing to let my skin “breathe” and let’s be honest, a touch of red on the lips always make you look put together. Here is what I have been using pretty much every day for the past months: Aromazone Mica Poudre D’or  (£2.10) KIKO Eyebrow Wax Fixing Pencil (£5.90) E.L.F Aqua Beauty Gel Lip Stain in Rouge Radiance (£4.00) Barry M Matte Me Up (POP UP) (£4.99) The Body Shop Lip Balm in Honey Bronze (£6.00) Rituals Hand Balm: Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil (sample but the big bottle costs £9.50) I talked about the …

My favorite Guillermo Del Toro movies (directed or produced)

Hi Everyone, How are you today? I was sitting at home trying to write my essay when I got distracted. You see, I love everything horror related and Guillermo Del Toro has always given me what I wanted in terms of visual effects, storylines, characters, etc. He creates such beautiful movies that I would like to share with you my top 5. There is no ranking per say, I love them for different reasons and I couldn’t bring myself to place one above the others. Pan’s Labyrinth & The Devil Backbone I had to write about them together because they both made me terribly sad. In terms of horror, The Devil Backbone is definitely (in my opinion), scarier than Pan’s Labyrinth because of the history behind the story and its “realness”. Pan’s Labyrinth is one of those movies that I had to re-watch to fully take in what actually happened. And to this day, I am not even sure. I think I talked about it before on the blog actually but it is worth mentioning …

Tofu Burger Recipe

Hi Everyone, How are you? Last recipe for a little while. I hope you like them. Let me know which one is your favorite (if you have one). For this recipe, you will need: Tofu Sweet peppers (two) Mushrooms Buns (brioche buns were the perfect fit) Cheese (optional, I grabbed my favorite vegan cheese, garlic&herb at Whole Foods) Rocket Salad Olives (optional, I just love them) I cut my mushrooms and my peppers, cooked them in sesame oil for about five mins. Grabbed my brioche buns and instead of warming them up in a pan like I usually do, I put them in my waffle maker. They turned out perfectly crispy I was so happy you guys! As you can see, the piece of Tofu I got from Whole Foods is HUGE (you get two of them in a box, already cooked and grilled for £2.99) and I just warmed it up with the vegetables. I believe the pictures are explicit enough and the whole thing doesn’t need a proper recipe. The garlic and herb …

My Karaoke Playlist

Hi Everyone, I haven’t done a playlist in such a long time!  You know how obsessed I am with music and the other night, I had a karaoke session with my Snapchat. So I’ve decided to share with you, my 100 top Karaoke songs. I’ll include a complete list of the playlists I’ve already done. Valentine’s Day Playlist because I love you (and because I am the Queen of cheesy playlists) My little Christmas Playlist Music to overcome self-pity Ride the tube in music Saying Goodbye and Cozy Sunday Playlist Road Trip Playlist My Kind of Playlist The Positive Vibes Playlist 10 Songs To Dance To While You Cook Lots of Kisses Alicia

Is Primark make up​ cruelty-free?

Hi Guys, I hope you are all doing okay. When I was in Bournemouth, I needed a quick lipstick to go to dinner and I honestly didn’t feel like spending an enormous amount of money (not that I usually do but you know what I mean). I went to Superdrug and almost bought another Barry M liquid lipstick (I already have the bundle) when I thought, why not check out Primark. I knew Primark had makeup and in my mind it was cruelty-free. So on my way there, I checked the web for an answer and here is what I found: Primark does not conduct and does not commission any animal testing. Our terms of trade with suppliers make it clear that cosmetic products and their ingredients must not be tested on animals. Following concerns about animal welfare and the use of angora in clothing, the company has ceased ordering all products that contain angora. So I bought their £3.00 liquid lipstick kit in the shade “Chocolate Brownie”, similar in terms of color to my …

April Poll and An update

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing okay. I wanted to sit down and talk to you about the coming months on the blog. I will give it to you straight: I will have to take some time off. I wanted to schedule posts to keep the blog alive but it’s gonna depend on how I am feeling and the amount of work I’ll have to do for my exams. I will try to write one blog post a week and we will, of course, celebrate my one year blog anniversary (coming up very soon). But with my Master’s dissertation, my schedule will have to change. I am passionate about everything customer and marketing related and this dissertation is what I need to gain some credibility work wise. So I am asking you guys, what do you want to see on the blog this month? I figured that since I would post once a week, I could go back to doing what I was doing when I first started: “A week without” or fun …

Promote your lovely blog

Hi Everyone, How are you all doing? I said that I would do another PYB so here we are. The last “Promote your blog” was awesome. I got a bunch of comments, I met my first guest poster and followed some awesome new bloggers who I wouldn’t have met without the post. So as you know, there are no rules. You do not have to follow me on here or on Twitter or Instagram. If you want to promote your blog and yourself, feel free to write something down below with a link to your blog and I’ll check you out. I have been following a lot of cruelty-free makeup lovers and vegans on here. I would love to get to know more of you of course but if you (or know a blogger who) write about books, movies, and fitness, I’d love love love to hear from you (them) especially. I’ll keep it short and end it here. Remember, my email veggieoverseas@gmail.com is always open. As always, if you’re interested in writing for the blog, …

A day and a half in Bournemouth

  Hi Everyone, How are you? I said I would have this post up by the end of the week and I do! I finally managed to find time to sit down on Friday night and gather all the pretty pictures I took last weekend. Bournemouth was actually a surprise from me to my boyfriend. I wanted to do something nice before our busy exam period (coming up in two weeks until the end of May) and a quick trip next to the sea sounded like the perfect idea. I found the hotel on lastminute.com, booked the cheapest bus tickets I could find and we left around noon on Friday morning. The bus trip was relatively pleasant, 2h45 mins which felt like half an hour since I spent most of the ride sleeping. The Hotel is located a short walk away from the coach station (15 mins to 20 mins if you take your time), 5 mins away from the beach and 10 mins away from the city center. I was very excited to stay …

A tiny Flying Tiger Haul

Hi Everyone, How are we doing? Did you like the 7 days challenge? I honestly am glad it is over. Blogging is definitely a weekend thing for me. Before I publish my monthly update article with our little poll, I thought I’d show you what I got whilst I was in Bournemouth (post coming about the hotel in 3 days). It has become our tradition to go to Flying Tiger every time we visit a new town. I have no idea why. It started when we went to Bath last year for my birthday and since then, every time we see a Flying Tiger, we go in and buy something. This time, we kept it light and bought things that were relevant to us at the time. The first thing I saw in the store was this big black bag for £1.00 next to the makeup section. I love everything black and everything about this “pochette” which I find extremely convenient. The second thing I saw was the massage ball which I had to buy …

Last Day of the challenge: The confessional

Hi Everyone, It is finally here. The day I reveal some of my secrets to you guys. I honestly don’t know where to start. Does it have to be serious? Can it be about anything? Do you guys want to know specific things about me? I’ll just write down 5 things I think are very personal down below and if you have any burning questions, the comment section is always open. I like to do my number 2 in complete darkness. I know this is weird. I’ll just leave it at that. 2. I am terrified of death I can’t stomach people talking about death. I know it sounds selfish but I have the hardest time dealing with death. I don’t cry at funerals and I pretty much stay in denial until a tremendous amount of time later, I realize that the person is gone. I do not sleep on my back because I’m scared of sleep paralysis It might surprise you guys and frankly, I don’t even know if the way you sleep increases your chances …

Day 6: If I could, I would

Hi Everyone, The end of the challenge is near! I will have to take a week of or two after this one because I’ll be studying non-stop for my essays and final exams. I will still be active on Twitter tho so don’t worry. Dozens of you have already joined me on there and it is nice to get to know you all a bit more. If I could, I would have never stopped running I don’t know what happened really. At some point, I was running 4 to 5 times a week, 45 mins to 1 hour. I think it was a mix of moving out of my parents’ place and living in the heart of London. I used to go running very early in the morning 6 am or late at night (9 to 10 pm). I don’t feel comfortable doing it here in London because it is always busy, I can’t run along the river and the parks are too far. I go to the gym now. And even if it is …

Day 5: The things I wish I had done differently

Hi Everyone, I have to apologize for yesterday’s post going up so late (in London it was almost midnight when I published it). I had a challenging day at uni and when I got home, I went straight to bed for a nap but ended up waking up 4 hours later. Today we are talking about the things I wish I had done differently. I have given it some thought and even if lately, I haven’t had any regrets, I managed to find 3 things that I could have done differently or taken care of sooner.  Going vegetarian You live and you learn. I am so so glad that I finally got to make this connection but I thought about doing it long before I finally did. And honestly, I think I was just making excuses and trying to relativise what I now find so natural. So yes, I wished I had gone vegetarian sooner but who knows, maybe I wouldn’t have felt like sharing my journey to you guys. Listen to my parents Especially …

Day 4: I am grateful for

Look at little 19 years old me, so naive and stupid. Hi Everyone, day 4 is finally here! I am running out of pictures for my thumbnails as you can see. I am generally grateful for a lot of things but I’ve decided to tell you what I have been grateful for today. The family cat came home! This cat is my baby (although he is like 15 years old). He was initially the neighbor’s cat but we noticed that as soon as they got two dogs, they abandoned Tequila (yes, his name is Tequila) and he was left on his own most of the time. From there, we started feeding him every day, soon bought him everything necessary for him to be comfortable at ours and he kinda naturally moved in. We took him to the vet several times, took care of him and he would always sleep with me at night and wander our garden during the day. But last October, he disappeared (at this point, we had been taking care of him …

Best and Worst Habits

Day 3 of the 7-day challenge is here! Since it is hard to spot exactly what are your best and worst habits, I have asked my friends and my boyfriend to tell me what they think mine are. Here is what they said: Burping (guilty) Leaving the hoover unplug Dropping stuff in the shower (dropping stuff was the most recurrent one) Leaving the toothpaste without a cap on (yup) Always loosing my Oyster Card, complaining about it, buying a new one and coming home to find the old one chilling on the kitchen table. Vegetarianism (guess who?) “Your weak arms” (true) Pouring myself a liter of coffee in a mug every morning, drinking 1/5 of it Never ever taking out the trash (we have a system tho, I do the dishes and the laundry, he takes the trash out. So this one doesn’t count) Leaving my toothbrush in the shower Best habits Cooking something different pretty much every night Always looking after people My bathroom cupboard full of skincare products and face masks (you’re welcome …

A day in my life: York

Hi Everyone, Day 2 of my challenge! I went to York last week and I thought that It was more interesting for you to read about York and the perfect hotel I stayed at rather than read about one of my typical day at uni. I went to York for a day and a half with my boyfriend. We arrived pretty early (for us) and went straight to the hotel to drop our bag and go explore. We had about 3 hours to kill before the afternoon tea and didn’t want to make the same mistake again (aka the time we went to Brighton and I stayed in to nap until dinner). The hotel is called Gray’s Court. It is located on a quiet street, behind the cathedral. Guys, I don’t even have the words to describe how beautiful this hotel is. A mix between old wood, mismatched furniture, lights, long corridors, maze-like manor. The rest of the day was uneventful. We walked around for two hours, grabbed a coffee and came back just in …

Day 1: Get to know me better

Hi Everyone, Well, this is weird, finally doing a get to know me better post, after over half a year of blogging. Let’s just get into it! I never know to talk about myself so please bear with me. I think It is fair to talk about where I come from first before we get into who I am and what I do. I was born in France in the most amazing family. My mom is mixed-race from the Caribbean and my dad is white from Italy. My parents are the sweetest and strongest human beings I know.  In a lot of ways, I am just like my dad. Quiet, sarcastic, always deep in my thoughts and sometimes socially awkward. I am also like my mom. Always ready for an adventure, passionate about movies, loves my gossips, confident and somewhat optimistic about my future. Add to the mix my own personality and you got yourself one confused introvert. I moved to London for an internship two years ago and ended up staying. London brings me something that Paris …

The 7 day blog challenge

Hi Guys, So this is gonna be interesting.  I am not a regular poster. I try to post two/three times a week but I never keep a tight schedule and upload whenever I think is ..best? I was challenged by the lovely Amanda to post every day for a week. I realized that I haven’t shared much with you since I started this blog so this sounds like the perfect opportunity for us to connect a bit more. So for the first time in six months, here is my schedule for next week: Get to know me better A day in the life of Best and Worst Habits I am grateful for If I could, I would The things I wish I had done differently The confessional I wouldn’t be a blogging challenge without nominations! https://bayareabeautyblogger.com https://forkandveg.com https://withoutcrueltyblog.wordpress.com https://startwithstyle.wordpress.com I love your blogs and I would love to hear from you guys and get to know you better. If you do this challenge, don’t forget to nominate 5 bloggers as well to keep it going! Go …

A night in Brighton – Drakes Boutique Hotel

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing fantastic. I didn’t stay long in Brighton. The trip was very last minute as we wanted to get away from London for a night. It was my first time in Brighton and whilst I didn’t see much, I appreciated the seaside, the fresh air and loved the hotel. After a 20 mins walk from Brighton station, we arrived at Drakes Hotel, sweaty and exhausted. The hotel faces the sea and is located roughly 5 mins away from the famous Brighton Piers. Whilst it looks modest on the outside, the inside is clean, modern and cozy. We immediately went to see the concierge on duty this afternoon. I don’t remember her name but she had a lovely smile, welcomed us to Brighton and showed us our room. I have to say that my boyfriend booked the room. I had no idea what it looked like. I just wanted a room facing the sea and crossed my fingers hard before she opened the door. She gave us a quick tour, said …

Little Life Update and our monthly poll

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing great. It is time for our little monthly poll. It gives you the chance to tell me what you want to see on the blog and gives me the opportunity to get closer to you guys and get to know you better. The blog is growing organically which makes me very happy. February was an interesting month for me. I got diagnosed with PCOS, got to see Brighton for the first time, got to exercise more and hang out with my friends which I neglected a bit in January. We also had our first guest poster, Kara, which I would like to thank again for her amazing article, her patience, and willingness to contribute to the blog. If you are wondering what I am talking about, here is her article. I am getting more comfortable in voicing my opinion on Twitter so if you want to join me over there and chit-chat, my timeline is all yours: My Twitter. I know I suck at Instagram but I hate the whole …

10 Totally achievable goals – 2017

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all doing alright. I was looking for an app for the gym, when I thought, what is so easy to do and easy to track? What is easily achievable for me this year? You are welcome to add on to the list, make your own and tag me! Drink more water This one must be in everyone list every year but this time I feel like I can stick with it. I go to the gym more often and easily down 1L whilst exercising. I have also noticed that since I stopped drinking sodas, and drink alcohol every two weeks/three weeks, I naturally reach for water. Save money for my future self 23 years old is still young but I am already feeling a ton of pressure. I have started to think more and more about the future. And we all know that our future can be compromised if we lack money to do what we want. Take the time to Plan a proper vacation  Since I have been in …

Horror movies to be excited about this year

Hi Everyone, How are you? I know this kind of post is not for everyone so if you do not like (or just don’t care about)  horror movies, I’ll be posting a Valentine Day/cruelty-free lipstick special very soon. I don’t know about you guys, but in 2016, I saw some terrible horror movies. This year was complicated for me. I have watched so many horror movies that I am very black and white. I either love a movie or I hate it. In my opinion, here is the list of the 8 best horror movies of 2016:  The Witch  The Conjuring 2 The Boy  Before I wake Train to Busan  Don’t breathe  Hush Under the shadow And for the worst horror movies of 2016: Lights Out  The forest  Ouija: Origin of Evil  The Invitation The other side of the door The darkness Blair Witch  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (a disgrace) Friend request  The Remains The purge: Election year (this one is debatable. Is it a horror movie really?) 31 and the list goes on. …

I Failed Veganuary already

Guys, I fucked up. You see, I have this amazing new Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine, offered by my good friend for Christmas. I love my coffee, a cup of black Americano without sugar every morning is all I need to start my day. When I got the machine, I admit that I went a little bit crazy and ordered 5 different types of capsules online. I see this machine as an amazing tool for my lazy ass but also a great way to show off when I have people over. And by showing off I mean: “Check out my awesome overpriced capsule collection. Get comfy, I’ll make you a Cappucino”. I know, ridiculous.  Well, yesterday, I failed. I woke up and in my state of morning grogginess, I turned on the machine, picked up a capsule of Latte Macchiato and pressed “fuck me up”. I drank all of it, got into the shower and realized what I had done. Instead of moving on, I decided that this day was ruined. I went ahead and grilled some …

Best of cruelty-free sparkly glitter dust (2016)

Hi Everyone, It feels good to be back! I haven’t taken the time to sit down and write a very long post so I am pumped. As you all know, I love love love makeup and transitioning to all cruelty-free was not easy at first. Now, I have to say, I don’t even question it anymore. Just like being full-time vegetarian (doing Veganuary right now), it does not even cross my mind to even look at something other than cruelty-free makeup. I know I will probably sound cliche (right about now), but if there is one thing you can do to help in 2017: ditch fur and makeup products that have been tested on animals. On to the fun stuff now. I was looking for glitters online last year to avoid buying another eyeshadow palette. Yes, there are tons of palettes that I wish I had right now but realistically, I only use three to four shades per palette. Unless there is a palette which I absolutely need to buy, I focus on buying either single shadows …

Merry Christmas !

Hi Everyone, I know I am a bit late but I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas. I had the chance to be with my family today and take the day off from work. I got some money to buy my first real camera so if it works out, I will definitely let you know. I will be celebrating Christmas tomorrow as well but with my best friends this time. I do not know what’s on the menu yet but they have accepted to try some of my vegan/vegetarian dishes so I am excited ! Also, I will be participating in Veganuary. It will be my first time ever so if you have done it before, please let me know how it went. If you have some tips, I would love to hear them. I will leave you with some pictures of the food I have eaten today ! I hope to see you all next year ! My Instagram Lots of Kisses Alicia

Songs about love, sharing & caring, kindness.. everything Christmas should be about ! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it ! Enjoy ! Alicia  

Let’s be ( food ) friends on Instagram !

Hi Everyone, I did it. I created an Instagram for the blog. It is not a personal Instagram so you will not get any of my shitty jokes like on my Snapchat. I will be posting all the food I do not share on my blog, bought or cooked by yours truly, new cruelty-free makeup and just some cool places – restaurants – cafes I get to check out over here in London. I literally created it an hour ago and I would love to follow you guys and see what you are all up to. My Instagram is Veggieexpat. I know it looks extremely empty but please bear with me, I will try to upload at least once a day ( fingers crossed ). If you can not find me, feel free to leave your Instagram down below and I will look you up! Lots of Kisses Alicia

I found some amazing handmade gift ideas for this Christmas and I thought that I would share everything with you ! Jewellery Holders I have TONS of rings and earrings.

I really want to get to know you !

Hi Everyone, How are you ? Monday is here and I am writing this post from my phone. Finals are killing me and I thought I would talk to you for a bit before I go back to my boring study session. So let’s chat !  Tell me everything ! Where are you from ? What do you do ? How old are you ? Do you have a blog ? Also, I opened a twitter especially for this blog and to meet fellow bloggers but I only had a couple of people adding me. People seem to add me more on Snapchat for some reasons. So do you want me to close Twitter and just keep Snapchat ?  What do you prefer ? I also have more than 300 people following the blog now and I want to say THANK YOU. That’s more than I could ever imagine and I will have to give something back to you guys. Like I don’t know, check my English before I post anything. But more seriously, I …

THE BODY SHOP HAUL – LIPS & HAIR

Hi Everyone, Christmas came early this year. As you all know, I am a post graduate student and I work at the same time. It is rare to find the time to spoil yourself when you are busy with uni and work but when I do, I go all the way. I recently got 40% off with The Body Shop for Black Friday and I couldn’t resist. I will not show you everything that I bought as a good half of the order was also gifts for my friends but I purchased quite a bit for myself. If you did not already know, The Body Shop is 100% cruelty-free and the brand displays the whole list of their vegan products on the website. On to the fun stuff now! I got a couple of bath products but the things I am the more excited about are the lips and hair products. Bamboo Paddle Hairbrush & Grapeseed hair serum With my curly hair, I struggle to find a great comb or brush that will not break my hair. It …

How to flirt with a Food Lover

I don’t know about you guys but the only way to win my heart is with food. Cook me a meal, bring me a box a Macarons, pour me a chai latte… and I am all yours. I was on Twitter the other day and I came across the worst pickup line. I asked my friends and our good old internet for some of the best ( and the worst ) food related pickup lines and here is what came out of it. Should we all go update our Tinder profile ? “Nice buns” “How do you like your eggs in the morning ?” “How about we go straight to dessert ?” “If you were a fruit, you would be a fine apple” “If you were a vegetable, you would be a cute cumber” “I am amazing in the kitchen’ “We would make an awesome pear“ “Let’s mash” “I am loving your melons” “How about we plant seeds together ?” “Do you have any raisins ? How about a date ?” “You look delicious, can I …

Moving Forward ?

Hi Everyone, This post is going to be a quick one. As you know my blog is about my vegetarian lifestyle. I focus on cruelty-free makeup or products worth talking about, vegetarianism & veganism and veggie recipes. I will be running a poll on my blog (it should be on your right, on the main page) and I would really appreciate it if you could participate. I will also add it at the end of the post just in case. I want to write a bit more and was thinking about a post on economic vegetarianism but ultimately, even if I decide what my blog is about, I would love to help people out, get your opinion and write things you are interested in as well. The poll will be up for 3 to 4 days. Please check it out if you have some time to spare. PS : I updated my post about Huel if you want to check it out. Much love to you all
