Since changing to a plant-based diet last year, I realised that there was more I could do when it comes to animals, so I started looking into cruelty free skincare/beauty brands and making some changes to my beauty routine. I thought I was making good choices long before last year, but it was clear I needed to educate myself more. Some of you might not know that for a brand to sell their product in China it means that by Chinese law they MUST test on animals. Some brands are able to get away with saying they are cruelty free… View Post

Dressing with confidence doesn’t have to mean a power suit or a sassy dress. It’s all about knowing who you are. Ever since I can remember I’ve felt more comfortable in a tracksuit than a dress. As a kid I was what some might call a “tomboy” at heart. Sure, I dressed up for friend’s birthdays and had to wear a skirt at school, but as soon as I got home, it was on with my tracksuit bottoms and a big cosy sweatshirt. I sometimes wonder if this was the start of my body dysmorphia, the need to cover up… View Post

This blog post contains an advertorial for Tesco. All opinions are my own.  Whether you eat a fully vegan diet or you just dabble in plant-based dishes without even realising it, the new Tesco Wicked Kitchen range is one worth getting your teeth stuck into. Not only is it super cool that one of the biggest supermarket chains in the UK is taking plant-based food seriously, it helps that it actually tastes great and isn’t just focused around mushrooms! Plant-based life can be hard when you have a bizarre phobia of mushrooms – the amount of times I’ve said “Oh,… View Post

With the many Blue Monday emails hitting my inbox this week, it got me thinking about how that day makes us feel. The fact that I had an email about National Measure Your Feet Day, kind of tells us that these made up days are possibly going a bit too far. I mean COME ON. I know I should be in support of many of these days, but it just seems that every day is there to make us aware of something. If it’s not penguins (side note: I’m 100% on board for that one), it’s the latest superfood. Hopefully a lot… View Post

This blog post contains an advertorial for Berghaus Welcome to 2018 and my first blog post of the year! I’m writing this blog post from the sofa of our cosy cottage in Wales after a hike to a cute lunch spot for my Dad’s birthday. Those of you who have followed me for a while will know I’m a super keen hiker and wherever I go – whether it’s in the UK or somewhere further afield – I’ll always be looking for a good hike to do. Every year my family and I go out for a New Year’s Day… View Post

Another blogger writing another 2017 reflections blog post… yep, keep reading! 😉 In October 2016 I had a one-to-one session with an astrologist, who told me that 2017 would be the toughest year of my life so far, but that 2019 would see the start of my seven years of totality. I would like to say that I understood everything he told me and did lots of research after the session to work out exactly what he meant. I didn’t. But the statement about 2017 being a hard year stayed with me. I’m a very open minded person, but I’m… View Post

This post contains an advertorial with Yushoi Snacks. I feel that this post is relevant all year round, but even more so with Christmas approaching because on top on the normal life stuff we all have to get done, there is so much more to think about. Christmas parties, present buying, planning for the holidays and much more. These are my favourite ways to save time and be more balanced. Most of us spend our lives being busy and even though we complain about it, a lot of us wouldn’t have it any other way because the thought of having… View Post

This blog post started as a multi-brand winter fitness fashion picks and very quickly turned into an appreciation blog post for one of my favourite brands and the seamless base layers that they’ve launched this year. Here’s looking at you Sweaty Betty and your amazing Sweaty Betty seamless leggings and tops! *insert heart eyes emoji* For many the start of Christmas is signalled by a Christmas song on the radio, the John Lewis Christmas advert, maybe advent calendars in the supermarket or the switching on of Christmas lights. Those things are fun and all, but the real sign that Christmas is… View Post

Beauty isn’t something I talk a great deal about on the blog, but sometimes it just feels good to share! Today I’m sharing the best face oils with you. Ever since my trip to Finland back in February I’ve been using a nighttime face oil, so I wanted to share my favourites with you. Being in such a cold climate really took a toll on my skin. From the constant rubbing of my nose to chapped lips and dry skin wear I was continuously nestling my face into my scarf, my face really took a beating. One of the lovely… View Post
