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…

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…

7 things I’ve learned since I had my nose pierced

So I thought I’d take a look back and list a few of the things I’ve learned since I had it done. If you’ve got your nose pierced then maybe you’ll relate to a few of these. 1. Decent studs are hard to find Now I don’t know if I’m just looking in the wrong places but, for me, it’s difficult to find decent studs. It’s not hard at all to find the cheap ones that you bend…

The sassiest pink biker jacket you will ever see

A couple of weeks ago someone shared a link on Twitter to the dreamiest lilac biker jacket I’ve ever seen. In fact it was probably one of the only lilac biker jackets I’ve ever seen. I’ve never been brave enough to jump on the bold biker jacket bandwagon so I wasn’t serious about buying it. That was until I fell head-over-heels in love with the raspberry pink one. It looked gorgeous online but it’s one of those colours where you can’t be 100% sure what it’s like unless you see it in person. So when I went into Nottingham on…

Fifteen of my favourite things

I recently read a post by one of my good friends and fave bloggers Emmie from Carpe Diem Emmie all about fifteen of her favourite things. She took inspiration from an article in a magazine so I thought I’d take a bit of inspiration from her and share fifteen of my favourite things. Takeaway treat My ultimate takeaway treat has to be Domino’s pizza. I usually order the House Special Roast Chicken because it is literally what pizza dreams are made of but I always order the stuffed crust. Pizza with a normal crust is obviously delicious, but a stuffed crust just takes…
