Trying Vegan Snacks – My verdict!

My lovely friend is forever feeding me her vegan snacks to convert me to her vegan agenda… Lol JK, she knows how much of a foodie I am, so she decided to give me a box of goodies! My friend does regular ratings of vegan snacks on Instagram, to see what she feels are are the best in the market. It’s a really cute piggy themed account that rates everything out 5 snouts! So in honour of her, I’m going to rate all of these snacks out of 5 snouts.

Birthday Update – I am well old.

Hello everyone, as I am officially Well Old today, I thought I’d write a little birthday blog post! When I was about 15, I decided that no one over 32 was cool. 32 was officially the age where it was absolutely impossible to be cool… If I could give my younger self a cold hard stare I totally would. Who does she think she is, with her purple flared trousers and her lack of decent hair products… she wouldn’t even know cool if it hit her in the face.

Fat and Proud: Calling out fatphobia

Someone excellent once said to me “What about you makes you think you deserve to take up less space?” and my god, she’s right. I deserve to take up space! I deserve to love myself and my body. Following from the absolutely incredible series of talks about acceptance of your own body, from the Anti Diet Riot Club Weekender, I wanted to write down my thoughts and experiences of fatphobia and how the experts suggest we beat the stigma and start feeling more body positive!

Embracing my Capacity for Creativity with London Drawing Group

How have you been this lock-down? Since I am pretty sure all my readers are UK based and now in the drudgery of a third lock-down, I think we can assume we’re all feeling the same. Lethargic. I feel like the joy and energy has been sapped from life, and I am just waiting out until the end and hoping for the best. Daily, it’s a struggle. But these mini lectures and art workshops have given me little pockets of meaningfulness and learning, so I wanted to share them with you.

A Geek’s Guide: Ways I’ve been celebrating Halloween this Year

Halloween is on a Saturday this year – for the first time in who knows how long (probably calendars) – and I have really struggled to get into the spirit this year! Have you? I am one of those “Halloween season starts in September” people usually, but this year with no promise of going to a Halloween party any time soon I’ve been finding other ways to celebrate Halloween at home.

Nerds on Tour: Rest, Relaxation and Llamas

When visiting Faster Lente Llamas this weekend- a glamping site with added llamas – I finally exhaled. I felt like the breath that I’d been holding for the past few weeks had finally been released. It was tranquil, it was blissful… and there were llamas. I invite you to explore this amazing experience vicariously through me, and then maybe go and try it for yourself.

Bloody Hell, It’s Marvellous: My honest review of Floweret Cup*

So… haha… bleeding. For anyone who’s ever had a menstrual cycle, we can confirm it’s just NOT FUN. Period. (That joke would work, if I were American.) For every person who’s felt the discomfort of a period, the embarrassment of a leak or the annoyance of having to find a place to change your tampon… Look no further. Floweret cup is a game-changer.
