Random Stuff I Like … Jewels to make you look and feel good!

It’s Friday afternoon, and all I really want to do is look at sparkly stuff on the internet, and hope that someone nice will buy it for me. Here are the lovely things I’ve found so far (they are all either fair trade, ethically sourced or made in Great Britain). So not only do they…

How to find your cake… AND eat it!

Today I really really want some cake… so whilst I eagerly await for some to arrive, as if by magic, I’m going to tell you some of my favourite places to get it from. Now, your average cake is pretty easy to get from anywhere, but what if you have allergies, or other dietary preferences?…

Random Stuff I Like … Homewares

It’s Monday. It’s grey and wet, and you’re probably a bit bored of all the election news by now. So, if like me you’ve been messing around online and looking at pretty things you’d like to buy, you’ll probably love this great stuff I’ve found. And because you can never have too many cushions, here’s…

Vegan & Gluten Free Friendly Restaurants in the UK

Friday is finally here, and the weekend is almost upon us. Time for eating, drinking and generally forgetting the worries and woes of the week gone by. If you’re eating out this weekend, you may know that it’s not always easy eating out as a vegan (especially, if like me, you also have to avoid…

Random Eats… Beetroot & Spinach Risotto (Gluten Free & Vegan)

I’m going to start sharing some of my favourite recipes with you. Recipes either devised myself, or adapted from similar ones that I’ve seen and edited to our own tastes/dietary requirements.  Dishes will always be vegan and gluten free. This particularly one is quick, simple and very tasty.  It’s rich in iron (for those of you…

Monday Randoms… National Vegetarian Week – Not just for veggies!

It’s that time of year again, National Vegetarian Week; when vegans and vegetarians are in the spotlight, waving fruits and vegetables at you from all manner of directions. Coming at this as a vegan, obviously I would be an advocate of that lifestyle, but any step in the right direction is a good one! Whether…

Friday Randoms… Here Comes the Sun!

I must start with an apology, as I am very aware that my Friday Randoms are coming your way on a Sunday afternoon. Thanks for dropping by and taking a look at my latest musings. I promise I’ll be more on track in future posts! My inspiration this weekend, comes from the glorious weather –…

Vegan Food in Deptford, London, SE8

Many would have you believe that Deptford has very little going for it, not only in the way of food, but in every way. As a local to the area, I’m here to tell you that it’s really not true. Deptford has lots of hidden gems, and today I’m going to tell you why, as…

On… World Fair Trade Day

Today is World Fair Trade Day and the theme this year, as decided by the World Fair Trade Organisation is Fair Trade People.  It’s a day all about celebrating the producers and consumers of fair trade products. Wonderful. What a great opportunity to tell you about some of my favourite fair trade brands! Fair trade is all…

Random Foodies & Goodies… TheVeganKind

As promised, I’m writing another post on one of the lovely monthly subscription boxes I’ve had the pleasure to try. TheVeganKind describe themselves as a lifestyle subscription box for vegan’s, and they are the first of their kind in the UK.  Not only do they give you yummy food treats each month, but beauty/home products that…

On… Damon Albarn & The Heavy Seas

For those of you reading this, who have not known me for a number of years, I should probably tell you that I’ve been a rather huge Blur fan for most of my life (pretty much from the age at which decent music opened up to my little ears and walked all over everything else)!…
