These aromatic garlic & herb knots are soft, fluffy, full of flavour and to top it off, incredibly simple to make. Plus you can use the dough recipe for pizza too.

Garlic Knots

Garlic Butter:



This is the second recipe in my meal prep series, which are recipes I make in a slow cooker and eat for dinner during the week. I’ve served this curry with rice, Bombay potatoes and homemade naan.

Veganism is one of the most effective ways that you can support animal rights, protect the planet and in many cases improve your health. It’s a responsible and compassionate lifestyle choice in which you exclude the use of animals, be that for food, clothing, entertainment and products (including products tested on animals).

In this series of articles, I’ll be going over the reasons people choose to become vegan.

Our vision is simple; we want a vegan world. A world without animal farms and slaughterhouses. A world where food production does not decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change…


This recipe is a staple of mine, during the week I meal prep mainly 1 of 2 recipes, this one and a Coconut Chickpea Curry-recipe coming shortly and eat that for dinner during the week, with weekends being reserved for more extravagant meals, and the occasional (or not so occasional) takeaway. I’ve had this chili with rice, in burritos and over nachos and I can say in all instances it hits the spot.

Since becoming vegan I’ve had no issues finding skincare, makeup, and other beauty products however, perfume is something I did struggle with. You have options from places like LUSH and Body Shop and whilst I’ve tried and liked some of these options, for me they never quite hit the spot.

I first discovered Eden Perfumes at a vegan market. The stall, which was mainly selling t-shirts, had a small selection of Eden Perfumes as well as the option to refill bottles you already had. So, after spending quite a long time testing out all the options they had I came…

As someone who became vegetarian at the age of 8, cheese was a pretty big staple for me. Be it sandwiches, pasta dishes or let’s face it just cutting off a chunk and eating it. So when I decided to go vegan in 2018 I remember thinking that would be the end of my love affair.

But thankfully not, in the 3 and a half years I’ve been vegan now, one product I’ve seen continuous growth in is vegan cheese. Pretty much all supermarkets offer their own as well as other brand alternatives to your classic cheddars, mozzarella and feta…

A few weeks ago, I noticed a change in my skin. It was dry with some areas of redness and products I’d used for a while were now stinging. A quick Google search led me to the conclusion that my skin barrier was damaged, and it was not something that would fix itself.

So, with my barrier now repaired I thought I would share my experience.

First things first, what exactly is a skin barrier?

Your skin barrier is basically your skins first line of defence, it’s often described as a brick wall. …

Have you ever gone shopping for a few essentials and walked out with half the shop? Do you find yourself unable to say no to those 20% off sales emails, ending up with things you really don’t need? Well if so the 30-Day Rule could really help.

The process is simple and definitely not something new, but it helped me a lot when I started my minimalism journey and is something I still practice to this day. The basic premise is every time you find yourself wanting to buy something-not including essentials, pause, make a note of it, and wait…

My family used to joke that if more than a few days went by without an order coming to the house then something must have been wrong with me. Now that seems ridiculous. However, that used to be my reality and I wanted to share how I changed that and how you can too.

As I’ve said I had a lot of clothes, my drawers used to bow under the weight of them in fact. But it wasn’t just clothes, it was shoes, bags, jewellery. You name it I had way too much of it. I’d have orders turning up…

Over the last year or so I’ve been making a real effort to reduce my waste and impact on the planet. One area I wanted to tackle was cleaning. We all like a clean home and with products targeted to every area of that home, it’s easy to end up with lots of products…usually all in plastic bottles.

So I took on the challenge of making my own cleaning products and I wanted to share some of those recipes with you, along with a few tips.
