RECIPE: Tiny tarts (easy vegan apple tarts to appease your hungry flatmate)

Have you ever bought ready-made puff pastry with no plans or idea whatsoever for using it? My local supermarket doesn’t usually sell the vegan stuff. It’s “all butter” this and “buttery goodness” that. I often entirely bypass the pastry aisle because there’s nothing for me in there. I was doing my weekly meander through the aisles […]

Organ Donation and the Mythical Vegan Handbook

I recently found myself in a debate on a vegan Facebook group. This happens about once a week for me, and it usually involves cat food or omni friendships.

As we launched ourselves at full speed towards the last day of LFW’s AW 2017 season in our carefully-selected-for-comfort mismatched velvet brogues, this rookie fashion writer was inspired, excited, and very very knackered.  In a strange way, making an effort to dress up each day for LFW made me a bit more body positive and confident […]

Not a Fashion Blogger: LFW Day 3 (Series 3/4)

Fashion Week brings up all sorts of existential questions. If no one takes a photo of your outfit, did you really wear it? Is the average length of a queue the same as the median length of a piece of string? Do things start to relax by Sunday at LFW, or do they just get more surreal?  In […]
