Veganuary – S K I N C A R E

If you want to adopt a vegan lifestyle this month or, hey, maybe go vegan full time or at least veganise your life in a REALLY easy way, you can start with your skin care products...

Body Shop Loves!

Last year I bought some really good moisturiser from The Body Shop after not buying anything from them since I was a teen... I know *gasp* What?! I guess I just forgot what the hype was about their stuff; I know they don't test on animals and a lot of their stuff is vegan (I'm … Continue reading Body Shop Loves!

Making // Vegan Lipbalm

I've wanted to do this little DIY project for a while now and, seeing as my mum bought me a huge pack of EOS lip balms a couple of years ago, I decided to save as many pots as I could [some I lost, others I must have thrown out without thinking] so that I … Continue reading Making // Vegan Lipbalm

Two weeks of eating Lean and Clean // Vegan

Welcome back to another update on vegan eating! Just kidding, although I class myself as a 'vegan' blogger, that's just to let people know what my 'lifestyle' is... but it's not really what I do as a main thing, which I'm sure you've realised... I hope? Anyway, whilst I'm not here to talk about all … Continue reading Two weeks of eating Lean and Clean // Vegan

From Pink to Peach // Hair Dye

I stuck out the bright pink from October to February and I think that's pretty dedicated, right? This weekend I decided, as I needed to desperately bleach my roots why not change my whole colour?! I'd, luckily, also ordered some Arctic Fox Sunset Orange and I still had some Virgin Pink in stock [read: A … Continue reading From Pink to Peach // Hair Dye

Vegan oatmeal cookies! 

I've always been a fan of cookies and cakes. Look, I'm not going to lie and say I wouldn't  eat a whole cake in one sitting... There are loads of vegan options for sweat treats out there but I resent spending a million pounds on them just to feel blargh afterwards (because they're tooooo sweet, … Continue reading Vegan oatmeal cookies! 

Food Shopping / Saving Money

I'm a terrible adult. I know this is the truth. The main reason? I spend most of my money on food. That's pretty much my only outgoing after all the other adult bills I have and to say it's gotten out of control is an understatement. I'm embarrassed to even tell you how much I … Continue reading Food Shopping / Saving Money

Monkee Genes // Ethical Clothing

What with my change over to trying my hardest to only buy ethical clothes from now on [read about fast fashion here] I recently had to delve into every woman's nightmare; buying new jeans. Except, not just buying jeans but finding a company who is not only ethically-minded but also sells GOOD jeans which fit... … Continue reading Monkee Genes // Ethical Clothing

Foodies Festival!

Wow, what's this? Another post about me going out and doing stuff? I'm starting to worry about my reputation as a recluse! The Foodies Festival is an event of food, drink and 'wellbeing'. A friend of mine told me they were looking for bloggers to drop by and do a write up so I emailed them … Continue reading Foodies Festival!

Vegan Mushroom Risotto / Recipe

I've been getting really good at risotto recently. It's always something I struggled with, despite being a decent cook, because I didn't have the patience to wait for the rice to soften but now I'm nailing it every time. I always make mine vegan but I do add chicken to my boyfriends plate once it's … Continue reading Vegan Mushroom Risotto / Recipe
