Top 4 Shops To Buy Cruelty Free Beauty Products In Coventry

For those of you that don’t know I run a cruelty free beauty blog called Hazelnut Musings. I love beauty products, they’re my guilty pleasure, but I hate that most of them are tested on animals.

MOD Pizza was founded in 2008 by husband and wife, Scott and Ally Svenson, in their hometown of Seattle. They started to wonder if there was a better way to do pizza where everyone could get exactly what they wanted for as little as possible and the employees could be paid as much as possible and be given more opportunities for growth.
