5 Years Later- About Me

It dawned on me this morning that I've had this blog for five whole years and so much in my life and the way I produce content has changed. I wanted to take a few minutes to write up an 'About Me' of sorts and reintroduce myself. I'm not much of a numbers person, oddly, when it comes to my blog, but I know there are some new readers that I would like to say hello to! And if you've been here with me all five years, thank you!
My name is Patti, I started my blog back in 2015. I majored in Professional Communications, and was assigned a persuasive speech on the topic of my choosing in my public speaking course sophomore year. We were tasked with finding a topic we were passionate about, and convince our classmates to take action or at least agree with our argument. Having worked at Lush Cosmetics that semester I chose animal testing, and compiled a presentation all about lab conditions, alternatives to animal testing and why it's no longer scientifically necessary, and easy product swaps you can make at home to 'cast your vote'. I'm a huge believe that as a consumer you are essentially voting when choosing which products to buy for your household. By choosing to purchase cruelty free products you are supporting a business with the same ethical standards as you, and in turn sending a message to corporations that chose to test on animals that you will not support them, financially or otherwise.
