The Vegan Kind Subscription Box July 2015 - #TVK21

The Vegan Kind TVK21

This month's Vegan Kind box is dead good. I didn't blog about last month's (and I'm usually pretty religious when posting about these because I really like them), but looking back at last month's I realised the box just wasn't doing much for me and that's why I hadn't posted about it.

There was a root vegetable thing and I hate root vegetables (parsnips + beetroot = nonononono) and there was a bar of soap thing which I wasn't overly thrilled about... ANYWAY. It was very much a case of last month's box just not lining up with my personal preferences, not that there was anything wrong with the box or the products in it, they just weren't my thing. Hey, it happens.

MOVING ON to July's box, TVK21, which is packed to the rafters with excellent stuff.

REVIEW - Eden Perfumes

Eden Perfumes

One of the cosmetics I always struggled with when I switched to cruelty free was fragrances. I used to work at The Perfume Shop (shout out to my spritzer girls!) so I know that many of the high street fragrances are owned by companies that test on animals and some brands still use animal derived ingredients in their perfumes.

I'd heard lots of good things about Eden Perfumes but was a bit reluctant to buy perfume on the Internet in case it was rubbish when it turned up! But everywhere I went Eden's name kept popping up so I took it as a sign to check the brand out.

Closer & Fitness Update - FB30 4 weeks in / Powerblock Sport 2.4 mini-review!

Tea on the Tyne in Closer magazine talking vegan weight loss

A super-exciting thing happened the other week... I was featured on Closer Online!

The lovely folks at PETA UK contacted me a little while ago about my weight loss story and I was of course happy to help spread the vegan message and how a plant-based diet can benefit our health and our waistlines. Me and two other lovely vegan ladies were included and they even featured some of our favourite recipes - go and check the article out here if you're that way inclined!
