I was getting ready for the nursery run this morning and as I brushed my teeth in the bathroom, I glanced over at the new shampoo and conditioner I bought yesterday and I felt like a fraud. Feeling like a social media fraud seems to be a big part of my life right now. I… Read More Feeling like a social media fraud.
We love to eat out in our family, but since we went vegan back in March it has become somewhat more challenging. Things are getting easier as some of the more well known chains are adding vegan options to their menu, though I have to say I am a bit sick of falafel and tomatoey… Read More Eating out as a vegan: 1847 Birmingham Review
Finding natural beauty products is HARD. Trying to avoid every company that test on animals or contain animal products or nasty chemicals is a real struggle. I recently shared a graphic which highlighted just some of the cosmetics companies that test on animals or are not considered ‘ethical’ towards animals and I have been making… Read More My Top 5 All Natural Beauty Products
It was watching Netflix Documentaries on the topic of animal cruelty and environmental issues surrounding veganism that finally convinced my husband and I to take that leap into living a life free from meat and dairy.

It sounds like the perfect job for me: part time, local,… Read More Cruelty free cosmetics, a strong pose and a unicorn sandwich. #LittleLoves
Veganism, sustainability… it’s all a big learning curve for my family and I, but we’re trying our best. If you caught my earlier post on sustainable living, I talked about how switching to Ecotricity could make a massive impact to the planet with such little effort from you, today I want to talk about another… Read More Cleaning Cupboard Staples – sustainable, vegan friendly essentials.
I have spoken before about how leather seems to by synonymous with quality and durability. It is almost a right of passage to head off to get your first pair of leather shoes as a kid, you wouldn’t be seen dead in anything other than leather shoes at an interview (bit ironic that something died so you… Read More Let’s talk about vegan leather.
