Hello Hello! If you've found this page, I'm assuming you'd like to know more about me and get an idea of what I do around these parts. This blog is a place for my to share the goings on of my life, there are an awful lot of cat photos, (I own four, I am fully aware that the quantity of feline buddies makes me somewhat of a cat lady) a weekly round up every Wednesday chatting about all of the lovely things going on and plenty of plant based recipes.
I follow a predominantly plant based diet for health reasons, when I was twenty three I discovered various tumours in my body as well as a large one in my neck which had to be removed, (hence the scar you may well see in some of my photos.). Growing up I was always quite unwell, with constant stomach problems and a very poor immune system. One day I came across the benefits of following a vegan diet and even though I had always found the idea of a vegan diet a very strange lifestyle I could never sign up for, I decided it was worth a go. Within two weeks I saw huge changes in my body. The tumours were decreasing in size, I was no longer vomiting on a daily basis and I had more energy than ever. You can read more about my journey here.
What may work for me may not work for others, every one is different. I have found that both dairy and refined sugar make me very poorly. I eat eggs or fish regularly to top up my iron, zinc and B12 levels in a natural way. I use a lot of honey in my recipes which can be substituted with a plant based syrup.
Who am I?
I’m a tea drinking, soul searching, kind hearted mid-(heading into late) twenty-something who adores documenting her life. I love to discover new places, people, quotes, food, songs and ideas. I am loud and forever overflowing with energy. I have four cats and live alone, which on most peoples terms makes me a cat lady, a crazy one at that.
I’m caring, impatient and wear my heart on my sleeve. I always look for the good in everyone and will try to find a positive in any situation. I am a yoga doing, plant based eating lover of meditation which probably makes me a hippy. I cram as much as I can into my day and have to-do lists dotted all over my flat. I believe in the law of attraction, in vision boards and goals.
I wake up early and go to bed late, I love to plan and once I have an idea in my head I won’t stop until I achieve it. I over think and at times (always) let my emotions get the better of me. I follow my heart and rarely listen to my mind. I giggle at the most mundane things, I have a slight fascination with socks and stationary. I love vintage teacups and tupper wear. My favourite food is honey, my favourite colour is yellow and I am hyperflexible. I am random and strange, I stamp my feet when I laugh and if I find something terribly funny I snort. I am ticklish behind my knees (a secret many would kill to know), I'm that person who plays with pets at parties and my favourite film is Elf. I absolutely love Christmas, a starry sky and the sea.
I become obsessed with certain foods and songs and will have them on repeat every day. I’m the girl who makes tea when times are tough, the friend that is always there no matter what and the person who will do anything to make you smile when you least feel like it.
I am me🙂
