I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Veganism is having a BIG moment in 2018. It is going seriously mainstream and it is about bloody time! One of the biggest things for me so far this year is the discovery of vegan ready meals. We love to cook, don’t get me wrong. My… Read More The Rise of the Vegan Ready Meal
Happy New Year Guys Rather than that ‘New Year, New Me’ rubbish, I am going to simply say Happy New Year to you all (albeit like two weeks later than everyone else on the internet). I hope this year to finally get off my ass and achieve a few things that have been on my… Read More New Year, New Me? Or…not.
It’s been almost a year I have been plant based/vegan or whatever you want to call it, since March of 2017. We got back from a week in Center Parcs and decided just to go for it. I can say with some pride that I haven’t touched meat since, though I have had a bit… Read More Veganuary: My Top Tips

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. I was interested to find out if simply watching the same documentaries that we had, would have the same… Read More Netflix Documentaries on Veganism: How convincing are they?
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. One thing in my home that I use quite a lot, but never really thought about before is candles. I don’t know about… Read More Soy Candles VS Paraffin Candles
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.
