Brighten Someone's Day with Prestige Flowers

how to brighten someones day

It’s not often that I get given flowers - I don’t do Valentines, I’ve not bought a car for a while, and I don’t teach anymore, so there aren’t many options for the gift givers in my life to buy them for me. That doesn’t mean that I can’t give them to other people, or to myself!

Why I Chose a Vegan Diet and Lifestyle

why vegan diet lifestyle
Towards the end of last year I transitioned to being fully vegan, and I’ve honestly found it easier than many thought it would be! I’m slowly adding more and more vegan oriented content on my blog - you’ll see these changes slowly happen, since as I’ve mentioned before, this blog is not a food blog. It’s more a reflection of my life - things I love, and that includes food.
As it’s now such a  big part of who I am, I thought I’d explain some of the reasons why I chose to live a vegan lifestyle -- and no, there won’t be any graphic pictures of animal mistreatment to make you feel sad (I know what goes on and don’t need to see things like that to remind me).

Taste the Mediterranean with Balcony Tea

Balcony tea review
I don't  want to tempt fate, but it looks like today might actually be the first 'proper' day of summer! The lack of warmth and sunshine so far this summer has caused a lot of frustration from people, and I've heard so many say that if they could, they'd move to the Mediterranean. 

I'd prefer to stay in Brighton rather than go to such drastic measures,and make the most of the sunny days we will have. That doesn't stop me from wanting to recreate 'the Med' at home, and one of the ways in doing so is by brewing myself some Med-inspired tea from Balcony tea company.

Azaro Dhaba Hove Vegan Thali Review

Azaro dhaba vegan thali review
When I moved to Brighton over a decade ago, I was used to not finding a decent, authentic Indian restaurant. I grew up close to a town with a large Sikh population, and that combined with growing up with friends who had Indian heritage made me a bit of an Indian food snob!

However, the tides in Brighton have been turning, and a year ago Azaro Dhaba launched in Hove. I can't deny that at first I was a bit sceptical, but I was recently invited by Azaro Dhaba to try their vegan thali.
