Since becoming Vegetarian about 9 months ago, and Vegan now for around 2 months, I have constantly been asked why I did it! So I thought that I would give you all a little story about how, why and anything else you could think of.
Before I start, I think the saying “Ignorance is bliss” applies to most people that I speak to about it. The majority of people say they totally understand why, they realise what is happening in the meat & dairy industry but choose not to seek information.
And that’s exactly where I began my journey – I actively wanted to learn and make a change for my own life and for the animals.
After recently taking the dive into becoming vegetarian, I have started attempting to be more Vegan. I am constantly searching for new things to try and forever looking at the back of the packet to see whether I can have it. #VeganProblems am i right?
I have began to love educating myself about the industry and delving into making meals for myself so I know for a fact what’s in it. It’s also helping a lot with my bank balance as I am just buying everything that I am certain will last me for the whole week.
My most recent meal (that was banging I’ll have you know) was a Vegan Korma-style curry which included a mild sauce that I added my own spices to.
So there we have it, another year is over and we are catapulted right back to the beginning once again.
2017 is over, been and gone and 2018 has been thrust upon us with such force that it’s time to start thinking of the resolutions that usually get thrown away 2 weeks in (you know I’m right!)
2018 feels different. I woke up this morning – slightly hungover I must add – with an overwhelming sense of determination. I don’t know what it is, or why, but I have feeling this year is the one. I know I say that every single year, but it feels like a fire has ignited inside of me, the fog has cleared from in front of my eyes and I have a proper vision of where it’s all heading.
After reading a postby one of my favourite bloggers, I felt inspired to write down what I have learnt from the past year and what I am taking with me into the new one. Stay with me on this one, it could be long.
I’m currently sat in my comfies, shovelling biscuits down my throat and listening to George Michael all whilst still having a niggling headache. Here goes.
It’s that time of year that warrants a change in your skincare routine, to keep up with battling the elements.
The latest regime that appears on the radar is Proverbwhich incorporates every aspect of cleaning to make sure that your face is fighting fit for the weather we are almost promised to have at this time of year.
The routine comprises of using 4 products in a specific order to keep your skin in peak condition.
It’s finally here; the season of getting cosy in bed, the days of Netflix binging and sipping on endless amounts of hot chocolate. I, for one, love this time of year because I am such a recluse and am a lover of the things I have just mentioned, so it’s perfect for me to be able to sit indoors, listen to the rain on the window and know that I don’t have to leave the house.
I’ve teamed up with Debenhams on their campaign to help with cosying up this winter and creating the perfect setting for your dark and cold nights. I’ve selected a couple of items from their new collection to make my evening as Hygge as possible.
Autumn. Yay! September. Yay! 2017 is nearly over, Ya– oh?
How bloody speedy has this year gone? It only seems like yesterday that I was setting New Years Resolutions (which still haven’t been completed – anyone else?) and saying that this year was gonna be the one…
Anywho, I thought I would bring you and update on what is actually going on in my life, alongside some of my favourite things at the moment and what I’m currently loving.
Let’s be honest, we’ve all been there. We’ve all got to that point in our lives where we question everything. Where we question what we’re doing, where it’s all heading and just get stuck – completely forgetting our destination in life. It happens to the best of us.
But it’s okay! It’s alright because we all have it. I think it’s part of growing up, part of discovering where you’re destined to be and part of creating our own path towards the life you are supposed to live.
I am a firm believer of everything happens for a reason so all of the events that unfold throughout our lives are just carving the way for a better and brighter future: we are all allowed to be happy, and I believe that the universe wants that for us, we just have to be brave enough to reach out and take it.
Sometimes, all it takes is just a little glimpse of rock bottom to spur you to get back on your feet and face the world with two fingers up. That’s ok. It’s all ok, I assure you.
What’s the first thing you think when you hear those words? I can almost guarantee that you immediately associate it with girls, myself included, but I can also assure you that it’s a problem for men too.
As someone that is constantly being told “You’re too skinny”, “Put on some weight” and “You’re just skin and bone”, it resonates right to my core when somebody says that body shaming doesn’t happen to men. Saying these comments might seem a little light-hearted and in good faith, but it’s truly amazing how much it has affected how I see myself.
