Gouldylox Reviews Rox my Sox

The following is a blog post by the lovely and kind-hearted Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews. If you haven’t seen her blog yet, check it out. It’s one of the few beauty blogs I actually make time to read regularly. Hey man – running a beauty blog takes a lot of time and energy – I wish I had time to read all of the awesome beauty blogs out there. πŸ™‚ I saw her post and asked if I could repost it for you. I’m very happy that more and more people are spreading the cruelty-free message. Ms. Lox also runs a nonprofit organization called Karma Dogs. Even more reason to love her.

Small Changes, Big Impact.

Do you ever feel as if your moral compass moves about, willy-nilly? I don’t claim the following will make a lot of sense. My husband has been trying to figure it out for years. But as I get older, I am finding that I can’t stomach some things as easily as I once could.

While I have not eaten red meat in close to 20 years, it is only recently I have been moved to start really trying to pay attention. I am now a vegetarian, bordering on becoming vegan (sorry, Mom) and am becoming more and more conscious about where I spend my money and the impact it makes. My reasoning for the change doesn’t make a lot of sense and it’s hard to explain. I stopped buying leather goods after watching an aerial wolf hunting video (a la Sarah Palin). I stopped eating chicken after watching a “downer cow” video accidentally on the news. I have always tried to avoid companies that test on animals, but am not always as vigilant as I would like to be.

Moving forward, I will try to give you information in each post that relates to the status of a product from a cruelty and/or vegan standpoint. I’m not saying that I am only going to tell you about vegan products and never mention another Mary Kay* product again.

I’m not the kind of activist that would tell you what to do. But I will try to give you a little more information so you can make your own decisions. Be sure to keep an eye out at the end of a post, near the FTC disclosure for details.

Do you think before you buy? Do you care? Tell me, please…I’m curious!

*1. Mary Kay is a lovely company that doesn’t test on animals. They stopped testing in 1989, maybe because of Bloom County, my favorite comic/cartoon ever.
2. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned Mary Kay, I just really love Bloom County.
3.That comic series is probably what led me to think about all of this in the first place, when I was in middle/high school.

Little known fact about me: I can decorate an entire Christmas tree with my Bloom County ornaments.

  1. Thanks Beauty Bunny!! You rock my sox!!

  2. Interesting.
    My son started out as a Vegetarian, moved on to being a Vegan, and now he eats raw fruits and vegetables. He won’t eat anything with a face!

  3. Thank you for this!

    I too don't east red meat or pork & haven't since college when I could choose not to eat them. I haven't gone full vegetarian. I get protein cravings something fierce if I don't have chicken, turkey or fish every few days.

    I have had people ask me about it, I tend to not want to elaborate much since I usually feel I won't change anyones mind but the small bit I do say might sink in.

    I'm glad vegetarian dishes are offered more places nowadays and cooks offer more than a veggie cheese dish. πŸ™‚

    I digress tho, since I wanted to say that I remember reading those very Bloom County strips when they were published! πŸ™‚ They made me think about these issues more too but I had always had a connection/respect/protective feelings towards animals.

    Thank you for sharing.
