Hello February, the second month of the year with 28 days clear and 29 each leap year!! It's hard to believe sitting here in freezing Scotland that in the Southern Hemisphere February is a summer month the equivalent of August. The month is named for the Latin word februum which means purification. I'm not sure if this is connected with purification or any of the above but February is also the month of love and I can guarantee you will love these chocolatey delight recipes I've created using my...

Hello everyone and Happy New Year. It's officially a new decade, which is very exciting! I mean, I get excited at the start of a new week so can you imagine my excitement at the start of a decade? Having not long returned from a trip to the Outer Hebrides for New Year, it got me thinking about my routine for traveling and eating a plant-based diet, especially in places where there are fewer plant based options available. It's also Veganuary and I'm signed up and 100% committed to ensuring my...

We are officially on the Christmas count down, with less than a week until big Saint Nick will be on his way down our chimmneys full of mince pies and sherry. I've always been a last minute larry when it comes to gifts because I worry so much about getting it right. I'm also passionate about making sure I gift responsibly, purchasing sustainable and environmentally friendly items that people will actually use and love. Last year I created a cruelty-free gift guide which you can read here and...

Do you want to join the positive change club? As soon as I heard such a thing existed I wanted in! I first heard about Vevolution at the start of this year. I think it was something I'd read on Instagram and I somehow linked to their YouTube channel and started watching videos from the previous event. I was hooked! Vevolution is the UK's leading plant-powered positive change festival, which took place in London on Saturday 16th November. I was there and ready for a day of learning. This blog is...

Hello November and welcome to my Blog, It's officially the penultimate month of, what has felt like, the fastest passing year of my life. November is a month with lots of reasons to celebrate. It's already been World Vegan Day, National Candy Day, Hug a Bear Day and we still have Homemade Bread Day, World Kindness Day, Cook Something Bold Day.

What else says winter if it's not a warm, sticky, sweet pudding?! Hands up if you love bread and butter pudding? What does it remind you of? For me it's school lunches, which I loved at primary school, when I wasn't eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches in a packed lunch. I always chose to have seconds of pudding when I had school lunches, with lashings of custard obviously. I was recently asked to review some delicious, healthy treats made by a company called My Raw Joy, based in Prague. As...

Well hello my friends, Here we are in another new month... wow wow wow.. How did it get to October and the leaves are turning brown and falling down?!! This month's blog post is all about weaning. This isn't something i've shared much about on here, partly because I don't feel qualified to do so and partly because I'm not sure if it 's of interest. However, as this space has always been partly journal, part connecting and sharing, I've decided I want to talk about our weaning journey. Maybe...

Hello and welcome to September's Blog post. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and read my musings. As it's officially autumn here in Scotland I thought I'd talk about my all time favourite spice... Cinnamon. It's something I've loved ever since I was a child. I think it started with the sweet cinnamon toast crunch cereal I used to scoff down before school. I LOVED this stuff as a kid and the taste has stayed with me ever since. I add cinnamon to everything now (savoury and sweet)....

Today I am sharing something a bit different because it's my first review on the Blog. I've been thinking about this product for a while after doing research into plant-based probiotic drinks whilst I was pregnant. This was when I first came across Biomel . I am not a qualified healthcare professional and sharing my own experience, so please check with your health care provider if you're unsure if probiotics could be beneficial for you. What are probiotics? Probiotics are beneficial bacteria...
Self confidence · 30. July 2019
I can not believe we are on the first day of August. I am sure I say this every month but where has the last month gone? We are over half way through the year already. Today I wanted to talk about being in a 'funk' and I don't mean the groovy type. What I'm referring to is the general malaise, lack of enthusiasm or moodiness we are all prone to from time to time. Being in a funk and getting out of it can be tricky to achieve. Sometimes we don't even realise we are in one. We may feel...
