This blog is all about recycling and by recycling we mean fun. You know those cardboard tubes our products come in? Well we have some ideas for you. Check out our instagram page for our inspo.
OK so I wanted to do a post on makeup because you will be surprised at how many companies still test on animals and I wanted to show you a list of all the companies that you can buy cruelty free makeup from. To be on this list companies have had to fill in a declaration form stating their manufacturing plant and listing the items in their product, this is then investigated and from there they get on the list and WE ARE ON THE LIST.

Lets talk about PayPal because I LOVE IT. Have you checked it out recently they have seriously upped their game in the online payment transactions. I have always used PayPal because it is recognized around the world as safe so it was the best decision at the time we started out for getting customers to trust shopping with us, but they have seriously up graded and im loving it.
If your a business owner its FREE to join so why wouldn't you, Here in NZ if you join DPS or other internet payment programs they charge you monthly and fees , its criminal and PayPal has an invoicing system that creates amazing templates with your details and also lets customer push a button and part pay or in full whether they have a PayPal account or not.
PayPal why wouldn't you

Ok so I just read this article and Im always asked about tanning if your pregnant and while long term studies have not been done there has been one test done in the 1970's on DHA inhaling it and ingesting it which this person never found.
When I started BROWNALLYEAR I researched every day till late at night for around 2 full years before building a website and feeling confident that I was doing the right thing. While the study is against everything in in my body (animal testing) this was done in the 1970's and they used rabbits and mice to inhale and ingest DHA with absolutely no side affects. After death and searching for necrosis (damaged or changed cell tissue) NOTHING was found. So while the American FDA says they dont approve that it is because they haven't done the research and even the scientist isn't sure.
SO in conclusion IMHO (in my humble opinion) I feel that following a bus or truck with your window down while pregnant is WAY more harmful than one spray tan, but each of us is different and I always recommend that each pregnant women conduct her own research and come to her OWN conclusion whether having a tan is best for her.
BROWNALLYEAR has extensive knowledge on tanning please ask us any questions you might have or click the link below to find what we know.
The article below is the one I found today
Off to Samoa to do Business (wink wink) and check out the Island life.
I tanned myself before going in hopes that I would blend in but on the 2nd day of being in Samoa our taxi driver was explaining they have bananas that are called Palagi Bananas meaning white and skinny and hence that name became mine. While everyone was laughing I was quietly going over and over the "skinny" bit because ive never been called 'skinny' but yes to the white bit, in Samoa I am a the skinny white girl hence the Palagi Banana nick name I got and I happy to stick with any name that is attached with the skinny and white bit even thought I tanned myself thoroughly before leaving.
Advice to fellow travelers to Samoa, dont even bother with taking tanning products because for one, no one cares and two, you are still going to look white. Have a tan before leaving will help you ease into your bikini. Swimming will be a constant and the intense heat will keep you wet if your not swimming so looking glamorous is just not an option and actually quite liberating.

People often ask me if dark skinned girls get tans too and yes just like makeup that they wear to highlight the skin so does getting a spray tan.
Having a spray tan over your already tanned skin does give it a natural glow and highlights the skin tone making it look photoshopped, so for any darker skinned girls give it a try you just might like it.
