Slug & Lettuce | Vegan

I was recently asked to pop along to the Slug & Lettuce in Brentwood for lunch and to check out their new refurbishment and I was pretty interested to check out their menu and see what vegan options they had on offer. I can't honestly remember the last time I'd been to a Slug & Lettuce prior to this visit, probably back in the day when I used to go out drinking a lot more than I do now! And I guess I have always associated it as being more of a drinking place than somewhere to go to eat.

The Ordinary Foundation | Vegan & Cruelty Free

I think foundation would have to be the most important makeup product to me and it's one thing I am always on the look out for finding a better version of. It's also the one product I don't mind spending a bit more money on.

The Loneliness Of Freelancing | Life Stories

One thing that you don't really think about when making the move or decision to become self employed is just how damn lonely it can be. I touched on it before in my 'Why I Became A Blogger' post but to go from working in a really lively office of twenty plus people to just working by myself has been quite a shock to my system, especially as I am someone who thrives on the support and encouragement of others.

The Barbican Conservatory | Plants

It's no secret how much I love plants lately and it's a new passion and hobby which really does bring me a lot of happiness. One of my favourite things to do at the weekend is to browse plant shops and photograph plants. My current house plant collection is pretty big and I'm trying not to add too many more to it at the moment which is proving difficult! But one thing I have realised is that I don't have to be buying plants to be enjoying them. It can be just as fun to go and look at them without necessarily bringing any home with me!

Creative Workshops I've Loved Lately | Lifestyle

At the beginning of this year I found myself feeling a little lost with what I wanted to do and what direction I was headed in. It was over the dreaded new year period, and I guess this is something a lot of people feel at that time of year, so I wasn't feeling too hard on myself. However, and as a way to get myself over this, I decided that the best way forward was to put myself out there and try something new. Partly just for the fun of it and partly just to see if it would lead to anything.

Easter Picks 2018 | Vegan

Every year my vegan Easter egg blog posts prove to be so popular and I am hoping this year will be no different. It's been so good to see the choices for vegans just get better and better every year and i'm thinking 2018 is set to be the best year yet! 

Here's my top picks of vegan Easter eggs for 2018...

Hotel Chocolat Dark Chocolate Bunny

I absolutely love the look of this dark chocolate bunny from Hotel Chocolat and they actually have a number of different vegan Easter products this year which is so good to see! I especially love their little Tiddly Dark Chocolate Pot's!

The large Booja Booja eggs are definitely at the more pricer end of the scale at £24.99 each but they look so beautiful and would make a really special treat for someone, or just for yourself! 

Moo Free Orange Easter Egg

The Moo Free eggs are a great budget friendly option this Easter and they're especially a good alternative for children. My personal favourite is their chocolate orange flavour but they also have their 'Bunnycomb' and straight forward chocolate flavours available. 

Divine Dark Chocolate Egg With Crisp Mint

I've never tried this Divine Easter egg before but mint and dark chocolate is a favourite combination for me so this one is at the top of my wish list this year!  

Plamil Milk Chocolate Alternative Mini Half Eggs 

I love the look of this cute bunny and mini eggs by Plamil and it's gold bow really makes it an eye catcher.

Montezuma Dark With Cocoa Nibs Eco Egg

I love that Montezuma have created this eco friendly Easter egg! With absolutely no plastic in sight this egg is perfect for the eco conscious vegan in your life. The packaging is also very cute and Montezuma chocolate is one of the best around.

Tesco Finest Salted Caramel Flavoured Egg

This salted caramel Easter egg from the Tesco Finest range is a real vegan crowd pleaser, particularly as it comes with some of their much loved fondant truffles.   

So Sweet Couture Dairy Free Easter Hen & Eggs In Basket

I absolutely love the look of this hen and eggs basket and I think it may be my favourite out of this whole bunch! I'd also never heard of this range before making it even more exciting. Oh and I should probably also mention that they do a vegan Easter Egg Treasure Box too!

Cocoa Loco Crystalised Ginger Dark Chocolate Easter Egg

Personally I am not the biggest lover of ginger but I had to include this option from Cocoa Loco because it looks beautiful and I know from experience that their vegan chocolate is delicious. 

M&S Made Without Dairy Dark Chocolate Egg

M&S are back again with their Made Without Dairy Dark Chocolate Egg and I have to say that I think they've done so well with their vegan chocolate and I am always picking up their mint and orange chocolate bars when I am in their store.  

It's also worth mentioning that The Vegan Kind Superstore has a great selection of vegan Easter eggs and treats too but if none of that floats your boat you could also melt down your favourite vegan chocolate and make your own Easter eggs like I did in this video!

What's on your Easter wish list!??

Dough Society | Vegan

Last week I paid a little visit to the Dough Society in East London after hearing so many good things about their famous vegan donuts. I hadn't actually planned to write a review about it but my experience was so good I just had to share with you all!

Spring Home Touches | Interiors

With Spring fast approaching I have been really excited to change things up at home a little and inject some sunshine into my home. It was great after Christmas to go back to a completely blank canvas again but as the sun has been shining more recently it has really felt as though Spring is in the air and the time has come to brighten things up again.
