Trying something new.

Hello, If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may have seen me post a link to a video I created on YouTube.  I know this is far from a big deal but it is something I have wanted to do for a while. I love watching snippets of film from peoples lives, seeing what…

May free from favourites (gluten free & vegan).

Before we start this ‘free from favourites’, I want you to know that I am not sponsored by any of these companies, I just like sharing with you all a few of my favourites in the hope it can help. I remember all too well how frustrating and difficult it was when I discovered my…

We can only do our best.

I had no idea what to call this post, ‘my vegan story’ seemed a little cheesy (only without the cheese-hahaha), ‘going vegetarian’ seemed too factual and well ‘national vegetarian week’ seemed too boring.

People sharing their experiences, informing us of the current statistics, facts, signs and symptoms.
