Applebar Juices, Cheltenham - Review

I love fruit. Fresh, tinned, raw, stewed, in a smoothie. You name it. Yum! It was a sunny day in Cheltenham and I had time to burn before my acupuncture appointment (Review coming roon). I found out about Applebar via my HappyCow veggie app - an app that tracks down your nearest place to get veggie grub. It was very easy to find. From the high street, follow the road opposite H&M and it is just over the crossroads on your left. It's very small and sometimes looks closed. It's not! It's open!

The variety and themes of monthly subscription boxes are seemingly endless with new ones cropping up all the time! Being an "almost" vegan (I'll get there one day!), I was delighted to find Vegan Tuck Box.

Dr Zak's High Protein Bread & Pasta - Review

We live in a society where pasta and bread are the bad guys of the food world. White pasta and bread most definitely. 'If it's white, don't bite.' Well I'm here to tell you that healthy, good-for-you pasta does exist. Let me introduce you to Dr Zak's protein bread and pasta. High in protein, low in carbs. Suitable for vegetarians and dieters alike plus they're soya free.

Hapi Bean Soy Candles - Review

I don't know about you but I've read a fair bit about how regular paraffin candles are really bad. They are non-sustainable and awful to both your health and the environment. This got me thinking about my candle usage (plus the fact that I was drastically running low on tealights). I knew I had to change as I've ruined the ceiling paint above my windowsill from candles. What was lovely green paint is now a smoky blackish green from burning regular candles. Oops. So I asked on Twitter if anyone had could recommend any soy wax candle's for me to buy and Jo from Hapi Bean Soy Candles swiftly offered to send me some.

Fleabag Friday | Ian

Staffys have a bad rep at the moment. It's bad owners that make bad dogs. I have very happy memories of playing with a neighbours Staffordshire bull terrier when I was a toddler. That dog started my obsession with canines. Katrina from Chatter Fox is here to prove to you that Staffys are one of the most loving breeds out there.

How to Pack for Traveling the World

I like to consider myself a packing pro. When I went travelling around Europe in 2009 I did little research, got a massive backpack and complained constantly that it was too heavy. For my 4 month round-the-world trip in 2011, I did hours of excessive research into what bag to get and what/how to pack. I hope you find this post very useful and hopefully massively time saving.
