    Has China Gone Cruelty Free in 2023? 
    Okay- there have been a few headlines these last couple of weeks about how brands can now sell in China and be cruelty-free. We’re gonna explore where this news has come from, whether or not we can trust it and what this means for the beauty industry.
    What do you think the future is for the beauty industry if all the major brands went cruelty-free? It’s such a massive divider right now it’d be wild if suddenly all brands were cruelty-free. Do you think it would crush the indie beauty industry?

    is there space for fat vegans? with luisa-christie

    is there space for fat vegans? with luisa-christie

    welcome back to susty in the city! today we’re joined by luisa-christie to discuss whether the vegan movement is a welcoming space for plus-sized people.


    hope you enjoy the discussion! we discuss whether the vegan and eco movements exclude fat people, ponder on why there’s a disproportional lack of larger vegan influencers and also have side-chats on vegan cheese, what happens when you get served meat and the positive side of influencing. 


    to start, let’s just clarify that when we say ‘fat’ we mean someone mid sized / plus sized and we do not consider it a nasty word. we appreciate people may use it with that intent and that is mean, nasty and not okay. but calling someone ‘fat’ has nothing to do with whether they’re sexy, healthy, active, smart, beautiful, etc. 


    hope you enjoy the episode - really keen to keep the chat open and frank in the comments but anything unacceptably rude will be challenged and/or removed. 


    this one felt quite special! can’t wait to hear your thoughts! x

    how to hit your 2023 goals ( with iza szyszko 😈 )

    how to hit your 2023 goals ( with iza szyszko 😈 )

    as 2022 comes to a close, i’ve brought on my friend iza to chat goal setting, fitness, wellness fads and juicing. she’s one of my favourite health-fluencers (i don’t follow many!) because i find her outlook on fitness positive and refreshing, so i was thrilled to get to grill her on her exercise routines and all that juicing.

    do new years resolutions really work? 
    how much does it cost to be fit? 
    should we try going celibate in 2023? 
    these are the questions we’ll be answering today.
