Supermarket Sweep – Tesco’s New Vegan Range

So I don't normally blog about supermarkets because, well, I just think there are probably more interesting things in life. But when you're vegan, it's weird how even the smallest thing like the prospect of dairy-free garlic dough balls can seem so exciting! When I was in California, I swore by WholeFoods, it was like … Continue reading Supermarket Sweep – Tesco’s New Vegan Range

I've compiled my … Continue reading The Do’s and Don’t’s of Vegan Eating in Brighton

This week I've finally got round to going through my photos from last year's amazing trip to California.
