Sorry no suggestions about beauty stuff. Avocados are ok on this site as long as your fat % averaged out is no greater than 10%. If you don't use cronometer...thats a good move for you.
if you mean eating, Catherine.
Avos also make a nice conditioner for hair.
As far as almond milk goes, the store varieties are all cooked and usually contain strange ingredients.
But you can always make your own in a powerful blender.
Beauty tip: purchase and use a vegan skin brush. Great for gentle exfoliation and moving lymph.
Hey I can give you all the advice you need! Shop in The Body Shop, Lush, Superdrug (a lot of their stuff is cruelty free). Also: https://www.ecco-verde.com/ this online store is AMAZING. Ask me as many questions as you like :)
Hi Catherine, I am based in London so maybe can help you answer some questions. :)
Sure its not easy cause it requires effort but it is possible. I buy my beauty products in Holland & Barrett (they have an organic shampoo and conditioner range which is vegan and cruelty free-Dr. Organic) and/or Wholefoods where they have loads more cosmetics. I also used products from LUSH, they have great facial/body scrubs and moisturisers. I also got some stuff from Faith in Nature-through their website. Hope this helps :) Get in touch if you have any other questions!
I'm not in the UK but Etsy has a awesome community of vegan beauty products. Here are a few of my favorite shops and I know they ship all over the world. Check them out and Etsy has UK shops and groups...

People fear what they do not understand. I do not know any other vegans or raw vegans except for this website.
Yes, it is hard, but you have to remember, nobody is tougher than you! I f you ever find yourself wanting to give up... think of the animals, think of the environment, think of the rest of the humans on this earth ever. Yes, it is frustrating, but it is hard to give up on those around you while it is easy to give up on yourself.
I use to struggle with the same thing in fact I still do time to time. I find what helps is be strong in your footing and it just doesnt matter what your friends think. Just be yourself and spread your joyness...Next time bring over a watermelon to share or something idk. Like I said I used to REALLY struggle with...felt like there was someting wrong with me but once I really began to embrace the lifestyle and own who I was, I was free to be anyone I liked. Quite a beautiful feeling.
Dr. Bronners is great soap, dont know if they have it in the UK but you can order it online. Also sodium bicarbonate is excellent, cleaned my whole house with that stuff. Clean untoxic good energy houses make me happy, my roommate doesnt understand.
