The Leopard Print Trend

Exploring Berlin Trade Shows and shops, I noticed a least a couple of leopard print pieces in each location, some more subtle than others, however it was evident all the same. I feel that it has gone from the subversive to massively mainstream. I used to think that the nineties leopard trend was tacky and…

Beyond Meat

A couple of days ago I tried All Bar One’s pop-up Veganuary fully plant-based burger. I was unsure what to expect with my burger. It was the revolutionary Beyond Meat burger, but it tasted and looked like meat. This whole concept blew my mind – it came with vegan cheese and mayo and also lettuce…

Crumbs & Doilies

My friend recently went to London and visited the Crumbs and Doilies store. She highly recommended it and said I would love the area it was situated in. Cupcake Jemma has also been an inspiration of mine; her cake creations look just divine and effortless, almost too good to slice or bite. The store is…

All Bar One

For my birthday this year, my parents and I took a trip to London for a day out. I was recommended to try out All Bar One for food as it would be perfect to accommodate two vegetarians and someone who eats meat. We found the New Oxford Street restaurant and therefore stopped for a…

Jackfruit Burgers

I have recently discovered Jackfruit, a tropical fruit found in Southeast Asia. It has a mild, sweet flavour, but when packed in water it becomes really versatile so that it can be transformed into burgers or vegan pulled BBQ ‘pork’. I found a tin of jackfruit in my local Aldi and so it is definitely…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Cookie Bars

Dark chocolate, peanut butter and oats are three of my favourite foods and therefore these oat cookie bars are one of my favourite snacks and sweet treats. They are really simple to make, and require no baking which is ideal. This recipe makes around 8 bars which are vegan and gluten free. Base: 140g oats…

The Pudding Pantry Afternoon Tea

Being situated in Nottingham for around a year and a half now, The Pudding Pantry is one of my favourite cafes, especially for brunch. Every time someone comes to visit me at uni, I am quick to take them here. Today, I met a uni friend who had been in New York since August, and…

Handmade Burger Co.

I’ve been to Handmade Burger Co once before, however this is when I ate meat. I wanted to go back to try out their vegan and veggie options. I was surprised that they had six different options for a non-meat eater. This made it hard to decide what to select. We went on a Thursday…

Sun-dried Tomato Risotto

I received the Bosh! Plant-based cookbook for Christmas and this recipe below is the first that I have tried to recreate. I altered the recipe to fit my preferences, but it was simple to make and surprisingly quick. It has all of the goodness of a risotto, but with the sweetness of the red tomatoes….

Mary Poppins Returns

I recently had the chance to see Mary Poppins Returns. I don’t know about you, but I often get skeptical when a sequel is announced, especially to a beloved Walt Disney-era musical like this one. I was happy to discover that Mary Poppins Returns is not simply a remake disguised as a sequel. It may be familiar…
