Vegan treats on the High Street: Pret A Manger launches new cookie

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.

This Winter: A solstice reflection.

If you know me, you know I am pretty spiritual. Over the years I have found myself relating to spirituality much, much more. My mum has always been spiritual.
