I visited Where Pigs Fly, just outside of Sydney, to meet Bubbles the piglet and the other beautiful creatures that live there. Where Pigs Fly is an animal sanctuary dedicated to the shelter and care of farmed animals. The most abused types of animals on this planet. It was really hard to comprehend that the wonderful animals we met would be DEAD and most likely EATEN had it not been for rescuers and the people at Where Pigs Fly…Read More
This Chickpea Tikka Masala is my new FAVOURITE thing to make. There are so many flavours and it's really rich, creamy and 'meaty' due to the mushrooms. The original recipe is taken from The Happy Pear's new book 'Recipes for Happiness'. This is my *slightly* modified Tikka Masala recipe for all my fellow coriander haters! Definitely a crowd pleaser.Read More
I've discovered some amazing products this month including these BANGIN' lippies that give MAC a run for their money!
I've always loved the creativity of make-up, especially after did a course at the LA MakeUp Academy when I thought I wanted to work in special effects make-up a few years ago! My dresser was stacked with colourful products and I never really thought about what went into making these. I am now making a conscious effort to shake up my make-up bag with fantastic cruelty-free products.Read More
These balls are one of my favourite things to make as a snack! Well, to be honest anything that tastes like Nutella gets my vote. And these are DELISH...not to mention SO easy to make and involves ZERO actually cooking.Read More
I am obsessed with Dahl. My favourite dahl that I have EVER tasted is the black dahl at Dishoom in London. I haven’t been there since going vegan so not sure if I will be able to try it when I visit London later this year. In the meantime, I have been making my own version, which I love. Check out the recipe…Read More
Since moving to Australia I have consumed LOTS of coffee (it just tastes so bloody good!) and have been exploring the local cafes. There are some amazing 100% plant-based eateries as well as cafes with awesome vegan options on offer. I have been making lists of the top places I have eaten in from Manly, to Glebe, to CBD, Surry Hills and Bondi... and a few in between! Here is my list!Read More
I have discovered some AHHH - MAY - ZING products lately, from sunscreen to natural tinted moisturiser to cruelty-free face wipes.
Vegan and cruelty-free products have come on leaps (bunny pun intended) and bounds in recent years. Here is a list of my recent finds that I adore...Read More
As someone who has sweet potato wedges with practically every meal, a generous dollop (ahem, more like entire tub) of hummus is a necessary accompaniment. Up until recently I actually hadn't made homemade hummus and it came as a surprise how easy it is to do, not to mention how much tastier it is than store bought versions! Here is my favourite roasted red pepper & paprika recipe...Read More
I took a much-anticipated trip to Joe's Sandwich Bar yesterday. There's something very comforting, yet indulgent about getting your hands around and tucking into a generously filled sandwich, bursting full of interesting food combinations. Located in the CBD district of Sydney, Joe's is a newly-opened, humble vegan sandwich shop with possibly THE best bread and filling combinations I’ve had in ages. Because some days nothing beats a good, old-fashioned sandwich.Read More
One of my favourite breakfasts is the super simple baked beans on toast. There is something very comforting and warming about it. Perhaps it is the memories of eating it as a child. Whatever it is, it is pure delicious. Lately I have started to make my own baked beans so that I can limit the sugar (always surprises me how much sugar is often added to the store bought varieties!) and also add some spice as I like my food with a bit of a kick!Read More
