Was on another board, where someone emailed Palmers and they received this answer about vegan products:

"Thank you for your email. The Cocoa Butter Jar, Body Gloss, Swivel Stick & Lip Balm do not contain animal derived ingredients"

I'd emailed them before about the Vitamin E in products (which is often from fish), and had been told that it too was vegan. They're on PETA's "don't test" list too: http://www.peta.org/living/beauty-and-p ... =0&Range=6

They make loads and loads of unvegan stuff, but if you're in a pinch, it's nice to know that they have a few vegan items.

refinnej: that's cool, thanks for confirming. I always avoided them as I had it in my head it was animal tested, good to know it's not.

Fezza: I LOVE those body butters. They quite often do deals in boots for 2 for £10, and I usually buy them when they do as they're about £7.50 each I think.

I need some really thick socks, wintery ones. Like the wool socks hikers would wear. I had wool ones back home from high school, but left them there. One of the pairs of boots I bought are a wee bit big and I want to make sure that they fit properly with thick socks before I wear them outside. Suggestions for materials/a shop? Thank you in advance. Y'all have been/are soooo helpful!

I think most places sell welly/boot socks, but you might have to wait a bit until all the summer stock is out of the shops.

Well, one pair (black) is sort of shorter/mid-calf height), so I thought maybe the welly socks might be too high? Plus the brown pair is below knee too, probably a few inches even. And I had a pair of the welly socks in the states and they were just sort of a fleece liner, not really thick... are they different here?

Also, I want to wear my boots now!

I was thinking that, too. I just have shiitake thin socks. I don't know why I thought I could just buy them here. I forgot that even though it seems cold to me, it's still summer!

Try Milletts or Blacks - the outdoors/camping gear high street shops. They sell hiking socks (which are thick, thick cotton) all year round.

Oh, it is cold to me too, Meggs. It's so not summer anymore. I think you arrived just after the 3 days of it we had. Mind you, the guy I share an office with (I wont say his name on the off-chance he reads this, but you know the one- the one who's a dick) is arguing with me over whether to switch the heating on in the office or not. He's threatening to disrobe should it come to it as he finds it quite warm. I, on the other hand, have taken to wearing a coat indoors. I know I wont 'feel the benefit' when I go outdoors after, but I don't care! Anyway... I know there was a point to this... oh yes, Blacks/Millets should see you right. They are opposite each other on what you call the 'S' street. SAUCHIEHALL. Say it with me now. Sock-ee-hall. It's not that hard ;)

I love those brown boots Megg, where are they from? Also, if the problem is just that the boots are too big what about getting insoles? Any shoe shop should have them.

Thanks! I got both pair at Schuh. I did get insoles, but they're just a wee bit too large still; I don't want them to slip on the heel and give me a blister. But the ones that "fit" were almost too small- my toes would've probably gotten smashed after walking for a while.

Is there also a Millets/Blacks on Buchanan? We walked there early this morning but they don't open Wednesdays until 10. So I went to Footprints and got some; we'll see if they work. I'm just going to wear both pair around the flat for a while to make sure I like them and they feel ok. I wrecked my feet yesterday by wearing my wellies with thin socks; blisters!

I may have to take a pair back, which would be sad, but I'm not going to wear them just for the sake of wearing them for the price I paid.

Hana told me about Rocketdog and Blowfish! I asked the girl in Schuh about leather v man-made and they're all man-made. Not sure they're specifically allocated "vegan," but they're not leather.

A quick google search of "rocketdog [and blowfish] boots vegan" turns up some vegan bloggers, so I think they're good? :)

Skinny malinky long legs, big banana feet! Went to the pictures and couldnae find a seat! Hahaha.

There's some joke that I vaguely remember about a polis-man grabbing a dude on Sauchiehall Street but dragging him to Rose Street for the arrest as he couldn't spell Sauchiehall. Daftness.

I saw some today! They have 2, one is in a blue packet and is 'plain' I guess. The other is in a pink packet and is a 'pearl' one. Having said that, I only checked the back of the pink one and that was vegan for sure, I assume the blue one would be too.

Try the Rocketdog ones! They're a little bigger around the top. Or the Blowfish ones- they're not calf height!

Ooh excellent! I pass a big Superdrug somewhere on my way home from something... maybe on Byres. I'll check it out! Thanks!

I can spell it, but I want to say it how it is spelled, which is wrong, so I call it "The S Street." I'll work on it.

Also: I officially do not like the Superdrug Curl Cream and now I know why. It makes my hair too soft, and therefore it does not hold the curl. I need to try one of the other things mentioned.

M&S have quite a few non leather boots, even the ones that go up to your knees are very wide. I had to exchange mine cause they looked to wide at the top.
