What I ate in Paris: Vegan & Vegetarian 

Hi Everyone, How are you all doing? FYI, the post is entirely made of pictures of food. I try to cook most of my meals and take advantage of my parents’ beautiful kitchen as much as I can. PS: of course I haven’t photographed ALL of my meals. The pictures below are just a tiny sample of what I made for myself and my family, from my week in Paris. What have you been up to?

My favorite Central London vegan and vegetarian pizzas (so far)

Hi Everyone, Guess what? It is FOOD TIME. Yes!Finally! I had a great Veganuary, I cooked a lot and felt great. I have recently enjoyed my first pizza of February 2017 (because trust me, there will be many more) and I thought: “Hm, who do I want to share my love for pizzas with?” So here you go, just for you, the best pizzas you can get in Central London, that I have personally tested and loved. PS: I will make update posts as the list goes on but for now, as I live in Central London, I’ll focus on what you can get over there. FRANCO MANCA – PIZZA 1 AND PIZZA 2 I love love love, love love, Franco Manca. I have talked about it before and I will not stop. I had both the vegetarian pizza and the vegan pizza without any added toppings. The crust and the dough are what makes their pizzas so f****** good. I don’t know how to describe it but the dough light in texture and strong in …

11 Vegan options from London Restaurants that are better than Sex

I was reading Grace Francesca  yesterday and I burst out laughing. Her post on 26 things better than sex was hilarious and way too real. I thought I would do the same with vegan food from restaurants in London which have given me some major orgasms over the past two years. ( I am not sponsored and I have personally tested every single thing on this list. I would never recommend what I don’t believe in ! ) Franco Manca vegan pizza. Happiness for under £5.00. Benito’s Hat spicy mushroom burrito. If you like burritos, Chilango is usually the way to go. But Benito’s Hat is slowly winning my heart with this one. Busaba Eathai and its amazing Pad Thai Jay. A must eat for Thai food lovers. Five Guys Cajun Fries. I honestly don’t care what anyone says. The best burgers are from GBK and Shake Shack and the best fries are from Five Guys. Spicy and cooked in peanut oil ! Pixxa Grilled Peppers & Herbs pizza. Pricey for a pizza but huge and delicious. Perfect …

Let’s catch up !

Hi Everyone, How are you ? How did you like my rainbow tart ? I just wanted to give you a little life update. The blog has been doing very well lately and I have tons of ideas. As most of you have noticed, I still do recipes and cruelty-free makeup but I also want to include more fashion, music and all that jazz. I am a post graduate student in Business Management & Marketing and will also be working for another startup very soon. So life will get busier but I want and WILL post at least twice a week.  I am vegetarian out but completely vegan at home which is a huge change for me as I used to eat vegetarian pretty much all the time. I will make another “What I eat in a day” post this week or the next just to give you an idea of what I have been cooking & eating.  I have been very lazy lately and my only form of exercise has been walking to uni and …

Rainbow pepper tart

Hi Everyone ! How was your week ? I haven’t been posting a lot because I have been busy with uni and job interviews etc..overall a busy but enjoyable week. I had my whole weekend planned, ready to be productive and enjoy the first days of fall, but I got drunk on Friday. It is so dangerous to go out on a Friday night. You think you will have two days to go out again and recover when in fact, in my case anyway, you always end up going too hard on the first night out and won’t move from your couch for the next two days. So in honor of my legendary laziness, I present you with the easiest tart you will ever make. With the  help of the following ingredients : Three peppers  A tart dough or Puff Pastry for maximum deliciousness  Some sort of Smokey Barbecue Sauce Mustard ( maille is an all time favorite of mine ) Olive Oil & Salt & Black Pepper The only work you will have to do as illustrated above. …

Saying Goodbye and Cozy Sunday Playlist

Hey Everyone, How are you ? How was your weekend ? The weather is surprisingly lovely today in London and I am heading to the park with a whole new playlist. I just said goodbye to my best friend who is taking the train back to Paris this afternoon. Funny how I hate leaving people behind but I am okay with them going away. The playlist is called Lazy Sunday and is available on Spotify. It is exactly 2 hours long. If you have any suggestions, I would be more than happy to give you access to it. The more the merrier ! Have a safe Sunday !  

What I eat in a day #4 Vegetarian

Hey everyone, How are you ? I would like to apologise for the lack of posts. I write about things I am passionate about / like and I would feel like I am not being true to myself if I would prioritize quantity over quality. I would like to thank everyone who voted and would like to remind you that the poll is still up on the blog. I will look at all the answers at the end of next week. If you haven’t voted already, please check it out ! If you are annoyed at the lack of posts, I have a Tumblr and a Twitter and I try to post more regularly on there ( especially Tumblr ). I am completely new to Twitter but I will get the hang of it eventually. It could be a nice way for us to interact as I would love to get to know you all a little better. Food wise, today was pretty uneventful. I did not cook ( I know, shocking ) but ate …

What I eat in a day #3 – Vegetarian Recipes

Hi Everyone, How are you ? I feel like I haven’t talked to you in so long. I usually post more often but I am working on something good for you guys which requires a lot of research hence me not being very active this week. To continue the tradition, I bring to you another  What I eat in a day post. I promise I will try to make them less random and set a day for them. I am thinking Friday or Monday. What do you think ? But anyway, so happy to be writing again ! I woke up quite late today ( because I went to bed too late. Again. ) and immediately “made” breakfast. I had a full glass of organic orange juice. Some peanut butter on the side ( this one is delicious. I used to be a fan of the Whole Earth brand. I switched to this one recently and I honestly couldn’t be happier ). And my pineapple from Tesco. This one was not as good as usual. I like …

Living with A Meat Eater ? Scandalous !

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely day!  So many things have been happening lately ! I just got back from Paris and I had to say goodbye to my beautiful family and my comfy house. Also, I have been playing Pokemon Go. But only from my bed. Got to level 6 pretty much without moving which is pretty impressive if you ask me. I have also been staying at home these past two days, writing and catching up on everything I left on the side. I did get up to go grocery shopping for the week yesterday and I realized that I had to buy enough food for two. Yes, I do not live alone ( who does in London really ). And the person who lives with me is not vegetarian or vegan. He eats meat. Red meat, poultry and fish. It has never been an issue for us. If you have a look at my previous articles, I am pretty understanding and will certainly not judge you for not eating the way you do …

My Kind of Playlist

Hi Everyone ! I am leaving Paris today and coming back to London. I have to catch my train very soon but I took some time to put together this little travelling playlist. I don’t know about you but I like to listen to relaxing songs ( I mean, they are all relaxing to me ) when I travel as I have the tendency to be a little anxious. Leaving my family and friends behind is always overwhelming to me. Warning !  This playlist is all over the place. Just like me. I Need a Girl – P Diddy Ne Partons Pas Fâchés – Raphael Close To Me – The Cure Home – Foo Fighters  Why Do You Let Me Stay Here – She & Him Under Pressure – Queen & David Bowie ( my life at the moment ) Goodbye Stranger – Supertramp  This Love – Maroon 5 ( remember when they were good ? ) The End of The world – Skeeter Davis Corinne – Metronomy I Try – Macy Gray  Hey Ma – Cam’Ron …
