You may think that Eastern Europe would be a difficult region in which to find vegan food. Especially a fairly small city like Riga. And sure, if you went to a traditional Latvian restaurant, you’d probably be right.
I think have discovered my new favourite comfort food. Spicy, warm and full of flavour, pav bhaji is the perfect dish for the cooler months ahead.
I love that veganism is becoming so popular that there is yet another vegan festival on the London scene.
Hosted by PlantBased magazine, PlantBased Live launched last month at ExCel in East London. Continue reading “Best Vegan & Cruelty-Free Finds At PlantBased Live 2018”
Living and working in south-west London for several years, I’ve walked past Fulham’s prestigious Hurlingham Club many-a-time. With its high walls and guarded entrance, it has an aura of mystery about it, so naturally I’ve always wanted to know what it was like inside.

London is becoming more and more vegan-friendly. With vegan food options becoming more readily available, brands focusing on vegan and cruelty-free beauty and vegan pop-ups popping up all over the place, you don’t have to go far to find animal-free treats!

Valentine’s Schmalentines. Anyone with me?
And no, it’s not because I’m single. Even when I’ve been in relationships at this time of year, I’ve found the whole Valentine’s Day thing a bit cheesy and naff. (If you’re into it, that’s totally cool! You do you.)
But last year everything changed…

If you follow me on social media, you may already know that I’m participating in Veganuary this year. It’s something I’ve been meaning to undertake for several years running but have never quite found myself committing to.
