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
After feeling mugged off (geddit?!) from the lack of tea here in Oz, I had a tea-rrific Sunday afternoon brewing up my own concoctions at the T Totaler Tea in Newtown. Sydney is known for its fantastic coffee but being Irish (and having lived in London for 7 years) I am a tea drinker at heart. A cup of tea solves ALL woes…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 recently completed my Yin Level 2 training with Power Living. We spent an amazing week on an immersive retreat in Byron Bay, studying, practicing and delving deeper into yin and all that it encompasses.
I could say I have always loved Yin, but that would be a lie. My love of Yin has been a slow grower. When I started yoga several years ago, it was the super fast, sometimes hectic, Vinyasa and Rocket classes that I fell in love with. You see, being in stillness terrified me. Where would my mind go? The answer: everywhere, picking about every little worry I had...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
...ok bear with me if you saw the word 'cacao' and internally shuddered imagining chocolate mixed with black bean tacos.
These tacos are SO delicious and contain a small amount of cacao that increases the richness of this dish. What you might not know is that many Mexican dishes actually contain dark chocolate and cacao as a base ingredient! I tested this recipe over the weekend and it got my boyfriend's stamp of approval too...Read More
In the last few months I’ve become hyper aware of how much plastic we unnecessarily use in our day to day lives. Usage that can be avoided with some small adjustments. I have a reusable water bottle and a KeepCup for coffee but there was one plastic culprit that I was oblivious to for so long. And that is the straw...Read More
