Elsa Rhae + Barron, Normal to Nomad

I have recently stumbled across amazing content online from Elsa Rhae & Barron Link on YouTube, their websites, Apple Podcasts and their Instagram accounts. A video was recommended to me on my YouTube home page (thank you algorithm!) which I have embedded below. The video went into detail about isolation in their 13ft Scamp trailer which they live in full time and the effects of a winter snow storm on their daily lives.

Erbology Plant-Based Nutrition

Erbology Plant-Based Nutrition

Erbology reached out to me about their plant-based, organic products to promote health using natural ingredients. If you have been following my blog for a while now you will know I have been eating a vegan diet since May 2018 and I have seen a huge improvement in my health and energy levels since then. I really believe that how you fuel your body is so important and I was thankful that Erbology was able to provide me with a selection of their products to try and review.

Everyday Gratitude

Everyday Gratitude

With everything going on in the world right now it's more important than ever to find gratitude wherever possible. I wanted to write a blog post to let you know what I am thankful for within my daily schedule and things that I have appreciated more than ever since March. I think it's fair to say that everyone has been through quite a lot since March with work, finances, health, relocating, job uncertainty, stress and anxiety to name a few. Even though it might seem that things wouldn't get any better at times, I found it really helped to change my mindset on things as much as I could to be more grateful.

Pizza Hut Vegan ‘Pepperphoni’

Pizza Hut Vegan ‘Pepperphoni’

Hi everyone! Hope you are well. Today we have the third of the blog posts I drafted back in January where I wanted to review new vegan options in the UK. This one is for the Pizza Hut Vegan Pepperoni option. This one took me a little longer to get to at the start of 2020 as none of the Pizza Hut restaurants around my in Birmingham delivered to my address. I think I managed to get a delivery partner like Uber Eats, Deliveroo or Just Eat to deliver this one thankfully so I didn't have to walk from the city centre to my apartment before trying it.

KFC Original Recipe Vegan Burger

KFC Original Recipe Vegan Burger

Hi everyone! Hope you are well. We have another drafted blog post from January today and I wanted to update it and post it regardless of it being about six months late to the game. So KFC has joined the likes of Greggs and other food chains in offering a vegan option in their restaurants. I use to eat KFC myself before I adopted a vegan/plant-based diet in May 2018 (wow, I can't believe it has been over two years now)! My family tend to visit KFC on occasion and I never ate anything if I was going with them as even KFC's fries are cooked in the same oil as the meat unfortunately so the most I would get would be a soft drink.

Greggs Vegan Steak Bake

Greggs Vegan Steak Bake

Greggs have done it again. 2020 has brought us the vegan steak bake and this was another crowd pleaser by the sounds of it. I have to say I am really impressed and I enjoyed the pasty very much. It's not something that I go for too often as too much pastry isn't good but it's nice to have an alternative treat to a sausage roll if I visit Greggs in the future.

1000 Interviews Completed!

1000 Interviews Completed!

Hi, hope you are well. I haven't posted in quite a while and wanted to start blogging regularly to document everything going on in the world right now. I am working on some longer blog posts about the current global pandemic and how this has affected life for so many people but to begin with I saw that I had three drafts from earlier in the year that I wanted to share.

Hello 2020, A New Decade

Hello 2020, A New Decade

Hey there! Good evening. It has been a while since I have written a blog post on my website and I wanted to change that. I'm going to be honest, it was tough thinking of content to post on a weekly basis and I think that's what contributed to me stopping last Spring. Since then a lot has happened so I wanted to write a little 2019 summary post and let you know what is happening in my life. I have reflected on the past year and having been reminded of just how much I did in 2019 by my Photos app on my iPhone, I was blown away!

 Apple Special Event March 2019

 Apple Special Event March 2019

This week Apple held their March 2019 keynote in California at the Steve Jobs Theatre. They held a services based conference this time and announced many new products that are upcoming this year. I have kept this blog post quite concise by publishing my notes that I took whilst watch the keynote so I hope they're quite easy to skim through and you find them useful.
