I’m going to say that thing that makes everyone hate you and think you are an insufferable moron: I have FINISHED all of my Christmas shopping. Granted, I don’t actually have that many people to buy for, as we tend to try and just buy for the children in our family but nevertheless. I feel… Read More A Christmas Gift Guide For a 3 Year Old Girl

I am a bit of a maverick and pretty terrible at following recipes without meddling, I chuck all sorts in thinking it will improve it… Read More Vegan Recipe Boxes: A Mindful Chef Review
Cheese might be the thing I miss the most you know. Bacon is a close second, but cheese is just in all of my favourite meals and it is the thing I have found the hardest to give up. It is also the thing I have had the least luck finding a tasty substitute for…until… Read More Trying Vegan Cheese
In my quest to leave a more toxin free life (excluding wine… no one’s perfect) I am switching up all of the things I usually buy for things that are more sustainable/natural.
