Changes Happening…

Hello all, hope you had a wonderful long weekend (if you are in the US) and wonderful regular weekend if you aren’t!

First of all I would like to say if you saw my update on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook yesterday about blogging I was a bit hasty and didn’t really say what I meant to say. So I figured I would write it all out on my ACTUAL blog.

I’m going to be cutting back on blogging for the foreseeable future. I didn’t mean to imply I won’t be blogging at all anymore (which is what I said basically yesterday) but rather I am going to blog when I feel like it. There are numerous reasons but the main one is the good ‘ole standard that every blogger who has been blogging for this long says: it’s no longer much fun anymore.

Is It Cruelty Free or Not?

Paw Prints

Happy Monday morning everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!

As most of you know I try and always put on my blog posts if a brand is cruelty free or not. Lately this is becoming harder and harder to keep up with because companies keep changing and I don’t have time to keep investigating. Many companies are now selling in China and other countries where animal testing is required by law, and I am not always up-to-date on what’s going on. Also people have different definitions of cruelty free. Some believe if a company (say OPI) is owned by a non-cruelty free company (say Coty) that means they aren’t cruelty free. Whereas others are ok with OPI being owned by Coty as long as they remain cruelty free themselves.

CommentLuv Issue

Hey there. I just wanted to post a little notice about the CommentLuv plugin on my site.

It’s been acting up for me for a couple months now, and I am trying to trouble-shoot it. Many people have emailed me because sometimes it adds someone else’s blog link to comments when that person doesn’t even have a blog. I have been removing these when people ask me to but the tech support people need me to leave some of them in going forward so they can try and figure this out.

Hopefully over the next week this will happen some more and I can get it resolved! So just know that if you see your blog post attached to someone else’s comment, they aren’t trying to take credit, it’s just an error that’s being worked on.

And while we are on the subject, I have noticed lately many people are leaving their actual blog links (not a link to a post) in my comments section. This is considered rude and self-promotional and I delete these comments. Many of these seem to be people from the UK or Australia where maybe the practice is acceptable. But please know that if you do it on my blog, your comments will be deleted.

Thanks for your patience!


Follow VV on Instagram!


Why hello there. I hope your Monday has been going smoothly thus far!

I just wanted to drop a little note to remind you to follow me on Instagram if you are so inclined. While many of the photos I show are items I will be reviewing on my blog, many others are not.

Bloglovin Problems



Just a quick note that my Bloglovin account seems to be having problems this week. I have emailed them a couple times and tweeted them for help but no one has helped me yet. I am aware of it though and hopefully they will help me soon. Thanks for your patience!
