So I finally have gotten around to a second part in my ‘growing up’ mini series! (The first part can be found here) In February I was volunteering in Wales for 3 weeks, and spent a fair amount of this time living completely alone in the staff flat where I was staying. This was actually my first time ever staying somewhere completely alone and I definitely learnt a lot from the experience, which I have compiled into this post. I also just returned from 4 weeks of solo travel in America, so I have included some things I learnt over there as well!
So if any of you follow me on instagram you will see something exciting happened last week… I passed my driving test! I’ve been learning to drive on/off for the best part of a year so it feels like such a relief to finally pass and be out on the road!
This is a slightly different post type from my usual, but when I was in Wales recently I had a lot of free time which I used catching up on my ‘to watch’ list on Netflix and watching a lot of things I had put off for a while! However I have definitely found some new favorites and thought I would share them.
March 2nd 2017 was the day I decided to try veganism for a month. It was originally going to be March 1st, but I had a box of Hotel Chocolat salted caramels in the fridge that I really wanted to eat so I pushed it back a day. Somehow, that was a whole year ago and I’m still vegan, and more passionate about it than ever.
Unless you follow my Instagram or know me personally, you are unlikely to know that I am currently taking a gap year and doing a fair amount of travelling!
I know not everyone does, but I LOVE New Year’s resolutions. I love the idea of a new start, and the opportunity to leave the old year behind and start afresh. To me, New Year’s resolutions are about improvement and enrichment, so I’ve decided to share 20 resolutions that can help make the world a better place!
Disclaimer: I’m actually pretty equally fond of all the months, and am not the total Scrooge this post will make me seem so please take this light heartedly!
Something slightly different today, a response post to the lovely Tabi’s ‘Why I love December…‘ Because I have to disagree, I think December SUCKS. Here’s my reasoning:
If you are vegan, pizza obsessed or read small scale news frequently, you may have heard that a while ago Pizza Hut were going to be trialling vegan cheese in 5 of their restaurants nationwide. Obviously the Vegan Gods were on my side that day, as one of the restaurant’s happened to be Crawley, 15 minutes away from me! As a vegan, pizza lover and owner of this blog, I knew I must shoulder the responsibility and go try the cheese… For the sake of the people.
Something slightly different today but something fun all the same! I was nominated by Charlie for the Sunshine Blogger Award, which is all about acknowledging bloggers/blogs who inspire you and add a little sunshine to their life. Obviously I am completely honoured to be nominated as that is the sweetest thing!
