Festive Tea Picks

Christmas is a time of year when I really embrace seasonal teas and this year I feel as though I have gone all out to find some excellent tasting tea. If I am honest I have never been a big fan of the traditional herbal teas or some of the wild flavours that are out there, but, and in my opinion, festive teas are usually some of the best tasting teas around with the flavours often being liked by the majority of people rather than just the true tea enthusiasts.

The Vegan Kind Beauty Box November 2017

This month has felt like a real treat as not only was it The Vegan Kind's special 4 year anniversary lifestyle box, but it was also time for their final Beauty Box of 2017. Getting one of their boxes through my door is a big enough treat so when it's two boxes at the same time and in one month it really does feel like Christmas has come early! 

The Vegan Kind Box #TVK49

This month's Vegan Kind box was a special one as they celebrated their 4 year birthday - Happy Birthday Team TVK! It's so great to see a vegan business like TVK be such a huge success and go from strength to strength. If you didn't already know they have recently expanded and launched their own online vegan supermarket and things have been going so well they've even had to move into a bigger warehouse. Who knew veganism would be so popular!??

Hayman's Mulled Sloe Gin Winter Warming Cocktail

Gin is most certainly the 'in' drink of the moment and I happened to try it for the first time this year as I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Nearly everyone I know chooses gin above any other drink so I was quite happy when I realised that I actually quite like it myself! I drink alcohol very rarely and I'm really not keen on the taste of strong spirits so gin works quite well for me as I don't think the taste is very noticeable at all.

Five Easy House Plants

Since I've been posting more about my plant collection I've had quite a few people get in touch to tell me how much they struggle to keep house plants alive. I also think a lot of people get put off the idea of owning house plants because they've heard other peoples horror stories about trying to keep them alive. I've had a couple of my own hiccups since getting into house plants and I also feel that I'm now in a good position to perhaps recommend some plants which I believe are really easy to look after. So if you are looking to get into house plants yourself, this could be a good place to start!

The Diner

Last weekend I found myself in the West End of London for the evening and I was really in the mood for a burger so I decided to check out The Diner in Soho, just off Carnaby Street. I had heard through the powers of social media that they have some fairly impressive vegan options now so I was really looking forward to trying them out. The Diner also used to be a real favourite of mine back in the day when I ate meat so I was really looking forward to be able to make a return visit.

How To Be A Minimalist At Christmas

I have to hold my hands up and admit that ever since Autumn came around I have been struggling with my minimalist journey. Autumn and Winter are a time of year when suddenly the shops are full of festive homeware and it's a time when I really love to embrace the seasons and everything that comes with it. It's also a time when I start to think about gift giving to others and how I want to show those around me that I love and appreciate them.

Momentum Planner

If you are a planner addict or stationery geek like myself it's probably that time of the year for you when you're wondering what planner to get for 2018. I have been in the same predicament myself over the past few weeks and if last year is anything to go by then I will no doubt end up with 3-4 different ones before the end of the year! What can I say other than I have a problem when it comes to stationery!

The Battle Of The Vegan Christmas Sandwiches

It's that time of year when all the high street coffee shops and lunch outlets release their festive menus for the lead up to Christmas and this year there appears to be some really decent vegan offerings - hoorah!

A Vegan Christmas Pudding With John Lewis

If you read my last post you will know that last week I attended a fantastic John Lewis Christmas event in London where we made our own vegan Christmas puddings from scratch. It really was so much fun and so easy to make them so I wanted to share the recipe with you all here on my blog so you can all have a go at making one yourself!

Easy Vegan Meal Plan

As it is World Vegan Month this November I wanted to put together a blog post which new vegans or anyone transitioning may find useful. I have decided to write down all of my current favourite easy vegan meals and collate them together in one place. Anyone who knows me will already be aware that I like to keep things nice and simple when it comes to eating vegan. I am not hugely talented in the kitchen and more often than not I tend to go for what's the most easiest to put together. I am however fortunate to have a husband who is more talented when it comes to cooking though and every now and then we do eat more fancy meals!
