So as the countdown to Vegfest London continues, this week I got to talk to Marta Zaraska - Science Journalist and author of 'Meathooked'.

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

One of my particular favourites is the Vans 'Off The … Continue reading Vans ‘Off The Wall’ Vegan Trainers

Animal Liberation Tattoo at London Vegan Tattoo Studio

On Saturday, I had my first ever tattoo. I looked around and found that some tattoo inks contain animal by-products, so I needed to make sure I went somewhere that used vegan ink. But then I thought, what better place to get a vegan tattoo then London's one and only vegan tattoo studio? Fifth Dimension … Continue reading Animal Liberation Tattoo at London Vegan Tattoo Studio
