What is happening in May?

Hi Everyone, How are you all doing? So I just wanted to pop on here to let you know what I will be working on in May for the blog. April, as you all know, was voted Month of the Food so I tried to deliver as many pictures as I could. 3 recipes were posted on the blog and I tried to show you on Instagram what I was eating every day. This month is going to be a bit different. I will be working on a Superdrug cruelty-free makeup post, a Sephora one, a review of The Body Shop new masks line and an updated list of new lipsticks/liquid lipsticks I have been loving lately. I will also (most probably) talk to you guys about my cruelty-free skincare routine (and no, Simple will not be included ;)). The blog also reached 1,000 something followers in April! I will also talk about this in another post, towards the end of May as I want to organise a little giveaway for you guys. The giveaway …

One easy Vegan Recipe

Hi Everyone, How are you all doing? I initially wanted to dedicate one post to three vegan recipes but it was honestly way too long. So I hope you don’t mind because you’ll be getting recipes for a week. I have been cooking more and more. I love grilled tofu, fake chicken, vegan cheese etc. We are a match in heaven. So I spent one week in March cooking every single night and I would like to share my three favorite recipes with you. Vegan Couscous You will need: Chickpeas (2 cans) Carrots (2) Courgette (1) Couscous (150g) Fake chicken (optional, can be replaced by tofu) Harissa Tumeric Cumin Tabasco Salt&Pepper So I cut all my vegetables first. Whilst I cooked them in water, I took my chickpeas (already cooked) and put them for 2 mins in the microwave. Once my vegetables were a bit softer, I added all my spices, except the Harissa and my chickpeas. I brought down the heat, covered it up and moved on to my fake meat and couscous. I threw the meat …

A week on Huel – Can I live off liquid for a week ?

Hi Everyone, Today is Monday and you know what that means. Well, nothing really since I upload so randomly.  But I hope you all had a great weekend. I thought that today I would do something different as I have some time to write, do some research and chill at home. Do you remember my first post about vegan snacks ? I quickly mentioned Huel. Now keep in mind that the post was written over a month ago. I had just discovered Huel and was definitely obsessed with how convenient it was. I was having one Huel a day maybe for breakfast with fruits or as a post-workout snack. I never really tried it as a “real” meal replacement. Since then, I have not been using it. Mostly because I have been away. I opened my cupboards this morning and saw that I had half a bag left and a chocolate flavor sachet. Awesome. So I guess this week is the week. I will be having Huel for breakfast – lunch and diner. For five days. Five days only, …

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 …

What I eat in a day #2 – Vegetarian Recipes

Happy 14th of July guys ! First of all, I would like to thank everyone who decided to click on my tiny follow button. Today is my blog one month anniversary and it warms my heart to have so many beautiful people reading it. Whilst I do not have a lot of followers, I do appreciate it when someone decides to hear me out so thanks again for everything. Today was a slow day for me. I stayed home again and spent some quality time with my family. I will be going back to London very soon and not looking forward to it. I love my friends, where I live & the people in general but after the whole Brexit thing, I might have to think twice before spending my life over there. Breakfast was light since I woke up around 10 am. I had a full glass of homemade orange juice and two apples. I decided to spend the rest of my morning outside reading. I recently went to Bath ( Thermae Bath Spa is …

Crispy Potato Tart Goodness

Today, I had no time to cook during the day but decided that I would make something special for dinner. I actually had the idea from my mom who complained earlier that she was not eating enough carbs. Challenge accepted (I yelled in my head) ! Time for an amazing potato tart filled with good fat and carbs. I usually buy my dough. I found a good and cheap gluten-free crust that I thought I could try with this recipe. 5 potatoes 2 onions  Basic Tart Dough Salt & Pepper and Olive Oil  Thym & Crushed Garlic  This recipe is easy to make and will satisfy everyone’s craving. It does not contain eggs, cream & cheese. Thinly Slice your potatoes and Onions. Throw them in a pan with some olive oil, salt & pepper & a glass of water. Whilst you preheat your oven, transfer your dough and press it into your tart pan. I like to prick the dough with a fork as well. When your potatoes and onions have softened, gently everything into the …

WHAT I EAT IN PARIS – RECIPES IDEA

Finally back in Paris after the longest train ride ever. We arrived so late and could not get a taxi. I got home around one in the morning and went straight to bed. Today was a lazy day for me, I did not go out, woke up late and spent my time with my family. Breakfast was light and refreshing as it is quite hot at the moment. I made a huge smoothie bowl. I usually make my smoothie in the morning and leave enough in the fridge for everyone to drink during the day. This was my first time making the smoothie and I was not disappointed. I used one banana, five apricots and a bowl of frozen pineapple chunks. I added about half a small bottle of fresh water and a tablespoon of agave syrup. It was delicious and very sweet. Exactly what I needed to wake up. Lunch was tasty and simple. I had asparagus, feta cheese, tomatoes and sesame seeds with a light vinagrette and a whole baguette. Naughty, I know. I …
