Revamping Last Nights Dinner – Delicious Vegan Rice Balls !

This is probably my favourite thing I’ve made as a Vegan. Last night I made vegetable paella and it was really nice and I enjoyed it very much, but being the only Vegan in my household a lot of the things I make are just for me because no one else will eat it. I made enough paella for about 4-6 people and it was going to go to waste because let’s face it, there’s only so much rice a girl can take … if I was to eat it all myself it would take like 2 days or something.
So instead of letting all that food go to waste, I revamped it into delicious little balls that even my family would eat. I see food wastage on the news and on T.V pro… Continue reading

Testing Vegan Recipes – Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Anyway back to this post .

I recently tried this amazing recipe from http://www.atiliay.com called The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever! And they were pretty damn good ! I made a few changes – as I always seem to do for some reason – I wouldn’t say they were necessary but I did anyway.

Testing Vegan Recipes : Chocolate Mocha Cupcakes!

So today I thought to myself, I haven’t baked in sooo long like literally a month (I think it’s because I’m vegan now ), and that is so unusual for me because I used to bake all the time. So I had a look online for some Vegan dessert recipes and I found one on the Vegan Society called Mocha Chocolate Cake.
Method:

Preheat oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6.
Sift flour into a basin with the cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and sugar, and then mix together. Stir in the water…

Barry M Make-Up Review And Swatches.

Hello everybody !
About 3 weeks ago i started researching different beauty and skincare brands that are cruelty free and those that are not. I was really disappointed to find out so many of my favourite brands werent cruelty-free and it made me feel so guilty that I decided to invest in some new make-up from a cruelty-free brand called Barry M. I had previously bought some things from them and i really liked them , plus they weren’t as expensive as other cruelty-free brands like Urban Decay.

I have slowly built up a little collection and I thought I’d do a little review on how they’ve worked for me so far .
Barry M Flawless Matte Finish – Ivory

I was a bit disappointed with this foundation I’ll admit. I have acne and I need quite a full coverage foundation and this foundation is light- medium coverage. I have to spend…
