I want to post this not as a justification, but as a note to those in the same boat as me that you're not alone and we should be proud of all we've been done and are doing into the future. This morning, I recieved a fair few amount of messages questioning me on something… Continue reading The Medical Mandate
It's definitely fair to say that if there's one thing I get excited about, it's finding new vegan food. Accidental finds or large retailers purposely putting themselves onto the vegan market, I'm sure to do two things; want to try it; want to tell other people about it. I visit Pret A Manger, an ethical… Continue reading Vegan treats on the High Street: Pret A Manger launches new cookie
It was only a matter of weeks ago that, courtesy of my close friend Claire, who blogs over at Rainbows And Thunderstorms, I discovered a glorious fact... Greggs' Belgian Buns are vegan.

Time… Continue reading Christmas 2017 for me: everything from veganism to working in retail
The Christmas period can be a pretty overwhelming time of year; whether that's due to changes in your physical and/or mental health, or your job picking up the pace a little, or just the stress of present buying, fitting seeing everyone important to you in and the general family stresses you face on the day.… Continue reading (self)care at Christmas

I am a proud vegan. Here's why, and some ways you could help us out!
How do you stay cosy and keep your emotions warm when it's cold outside? Whilst at work last week, I did my 'focus' on uplifting Christmas products and those with neroli (an ingredient proven to stimulate serotonin) and my good friend Hannah showered me with a fact I did not know and had never… Continue reading The cosy chronicles
Simplicity tells a wild tale. On Friday night, I decided to mix my own smoothie up and it was very 'on-the-spot'.

When I was getting my five a day earlier… Continue reading Recipe #1- Laur’s smoothie pick of the week.
