I’m not vegan but this is what I’m doing to make the world a better place

I can remember when I didn’t know what it meant to be vegan and, to be honest, it wasn’t that long ago. Nowadays almost everyone knows at least one or two vegans and veganism is probably just as common, if not more so, than vegetarianism. I didn’t used to understand why people wanted to be vegan. I used to (naively) think that if an animal wasn’t killed for their produce then they weren’t harmed at all. Obviously I now know that I was completely wrong in thinking that and I’m ashamed that I ever did. But I guess the first…

Monthly highlights: January 2018

January 2018 already! Where has the time gone? The older I get, the faster it seems to fly by. January was slow and quiet. Honestly, I struggled to think of a handful of highlights at first. But I’ve managed to scrape a few together so hopefully this post won’t be as boring as January felt. Orange Is the New Black I started watching OITNB way back when it first came out but I only made it to the end of season 2. I got bored of it to be honest and I could never get back into it. I started…

I want to lose weight and there is nothing wrong with that

I’ve seen a lot of people posting about their new year’s goals and resolutions but this year I’ve noticed a change. I’ve noticed less people want to lose weight and more people want to embrace their size and love their bodies as they are. Obviously, this is fantastic! I love seeing people love themselves; it’s something I wish I could do! But I can’t, and that’s why I want to lose weight and, frankly, there is nothing wrong with that. I’ve been a big girl my whole life. I’ve always had an appetite and I’ve always loved food. I’m notorious…

Monthly highlights: October, November and December 2017

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve published a monthly highlights post! In fact, it’s been a long time since I’ve published a post at all. I could blame it on being busy (as always) but, honestly, I’ve not really been interested in blogging much lately. It’s been more of a chore than something to look forward to. That being said, I have been stupidly busy so this monthly highlights is a bumper edition. Lucky you, eh? Some of these highlights are literally life-changing so I couldn’t not write about them! Thank you for sticking with me while I’ve…

Monthly highlights: September 2017

I’ve got a confession to make… September was so busy and went so fast that I actually forgot to make a list of my highlights. I realised at the last minute that September was nearly over and done with for another year. That was when I knew that I needed to get my bum in gear and write my September highlights post! So, I might have missed a few things but let’s make a start. Also, I’m sorry this post is so late! As always, I’ve been a busy bee so blogging was put on a back burner. You’ll find out what I’ve…
