An Announcement.

_MG_0091

This is a post I’ve started to write many, many times. It’s been through more drafts than any other I’ve written. I dabbled with writing the word “important” in the title, but that seemed vain, and I mulled over just mentioning this in a footnote of another post, but that seemed dismissive, and I even thought about not announcing this at all, but I’ve started to feel weirdly secretive.

Vegan Club: Mouse’s Favourite Cheese Review

_MG_0007Today I’m reviewing Mouse’s Favourite – a vegan cheese company who use nuts to create their delicious cheeses. I first discovered Mouse’s Favourite at London Animal Free Festival and was kindly sent four of their products to try out and review! I’m so glad I came across their stall – they’re one of those small yet magical companies whose products you didn’t realise you needed. Continue reading

LEIA #11: New Relationships

_MG_0193

Sometimes it starts inconspicuously enough; a sudden interest in a new band or a brief case of Mentionitis. You’ll wonder why they’ve stopped the weekly pub outings and yet, are suddenly, suspiciously more broke than usual. Then a friend will drop off the radar for weeks at a time with a hasty “yeah, things are great”, only surfacing for air for once a month. They can spare just a few distracted minutes after your show, leaving after the first round of drinks, back to spending every night at their beau’s pad. Continue reading

I’ve got quite a few posts I had hoped to put up, so when I’m feeling better I’ll probably be doubling up my post output for a while.

Vegan Club: Vegan in Scotland

I want to preface this post by telling you
a) this is just focusing on Glasgow and Edinburgh or it would have been 40 pages long
b) I love Scotland, and
c) if you’re vegan, Scotland loves you (I mean, I’m not saying they don’t love you if you’re not vegan, but you’re DEFINITELY loved if you are vegan, know what I’m saying?).
