Today’s post is for anyone who, like me, STILL hasn’t started their Christmas shopping. I can’t be the only one left surely?
Rather than traipsing round the shops, checking labels to see whether products are cruelty-free, I find it so much easier and less time-consuming to buy the products direct from vegan-friendly businesses, whether that be at Christmas markets or from online shops. I especially love to support the independents, family-run businesses and charities.
In this post, I’ll give you the low down on a few of my favourite places to buy vegan gifts. I’ve also hand-picked some goodies that would make great Christmas gifts for your loved ones.
Today I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious chocolate treat that would be perfect for sharing in the upcoming festive season.
Say hello to the Giant Chocolate Biscoff Cookie Butter Cup…
This mix of melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate and biscoff cookies in butter form is a match made in heaven. Whether you’re vegan yourself, or looking for a chocolatey gift for a vegan/dairy-free loved one, these cups are bound to impress. And the fact that you made them yourself is sure to win you extra brownie points. Continue reading
Just over two years ago I wrote a review of the Froothie Optimum 9400 blender. It was the first time I’d ever used a ‘Power Blender’. Until that point, I’d always used mid-range blenders and was become increasingly frustrated with their lack of longevity. (You can read all about my experiences and my side-by-side comparison of the Froothie Optimum 9400 and a mid-range blender in that 2014 post).
However, it probably wasn’t a 100% fair comparison back then as I was comparing my brand new Froothie with a year-old blender. In this post, I thought I’d give an update on my Froothie blender, two years on. Has it withstood the test of time?
I also have a fantastic offer available to my readers. You’ll find details at the end of this post.
In today’s post, I’m sharing some of my top picks of chocolates for the upcoming festive season. So if you’re looking to buy chocolates for a vegan loved one… or are vegan yourself and looking to buy a gift for family and friends, I’ve got you covered!
Vegan Town is a great place to head if you’re looking for something special and a bit different. It’s my ‘go to’ shop for vegan chocolates and here are a few reasons why… Continue reading
So my book launched last Wednesday, and what a week it’s been! I’ve been truly overwhelmed by the response it’s received. Thank you so much to everyone that’s purchased the book so far and all the lovely messages you’ve been sending me. I can’t believe how quickly people have got stuck into it, and it’s been wonderful to see your all the pics you’ve been posting online.
Last Wednesday we had a launch event at the Rising Sun pub in Bath (kindly organised by my friend Vip). It was such an amazing night! ✨ So many people turned up (far more than I expected!) I didn’t personally know most of them, so it was great to chat and connect with these lovely people.
The photo below was taken while I was delivering a talk on the book (I’m the blurry person right at the back). I was terrified as I hate public speaking. I was a bit shaky and emotional in places, but I managed to get through it. Phew!
After the talk, the pub served a pasta dish from my cookbook and I had brought along some cakes and chocolate truffles for people to sample. With the talk out the way, I started to relax and enjoy myself. Here I am with my dear friends Cheryl and Sian… Continue reading
