The Vegan Kind TVK22 Unboxing

I'm finally all moved in, and guess what was ready and waiting for me when I arrived back in the countryside... My August TVK22 box! It's taken me several weeks to get myself organised and figure out the best photography spots in the new house, but I'm finally here to share this month's dose of cruelty-free snack-pornography with you - albeit a little late.

Best of Pinterest: Avocado Edition

5 of the best vegan avocado recipes on Pinterest

Sorryyyyyyy!!! Been a little MIA from this blog for a few weeks. In truth, now that I'm freelancing and blogging full-time, I'm still trying how to figure out how best to juggle maintaining my professional website, beauty blog and this blog (all while packing up to move back to Derbyshire next month). This blog is my 'fun' blog so it always seems to be the first to suffer when I've got a lot on. However, I'm here now, and I want to pass along a few delicious avocado-based recipes that I've found recently on my Pinterest travels. I find it's really easy to get into an avocado rut and, while I enjoy nothing better than regular old mashed avocado on toast with grilled tomatoes and a dusting of salt and pepper, Pinterest has opened my eyes to how versatile this gloriously green fruit (yes, fruit) really is. Here are 5 avocado recipes that I will definitely be trying out in the very near future, accompanied by much avocado-porn...

Book Review: The Freemind Experience by Tom Fortes Mayer

Book review of The Freemind Experience

This is a bit of a first for me. I've always had trouble switching off from things. I'm a thinker and a worrier in equal measure. I'm also terminally unlucky, particularly with health and my career goals. As a vegan I think it's very easy to, subconsciously, build up a resentment towards others, and society as a whole, for not acknowledging, and often ignoring, the suffering and pain we inflict upon other species on such a huge scale. For me this sometimes results in a feeling of negativity that is hard to shift and can really impact my mood and ability to look at life through a positive lens. Weirdly, when I spotted the opportunity to review The Freemind Experience*, it suddenly really appealed to me, despite me having never really read anything like it before (I'm a Game of Thrones and Tolkien girl). I was really interested by it. So here's what I thought of it..
