I've decided to try something new on the blog! Now that I'm sticking quite religiously to my ritual of making a meal plan for the month, featuring three different meals every week, I thought I would share what I've been cooking. I'm constantly told, 'I could never go vegan...what do you even eat??' and the… Continue reading But…What Do Vegans Eat? Weekly Menu, September 11th – 17th
I think that most people who know we would agree that I'm a bit of an over-achiever.

I love baking. I always have, and heading more on to the frugal path has pushed me to stop wasting money on bland biscuits and head in to the kitchen. After whipping up a delicious batch of shortbread, I brought some for snacks in to work. I decided to share some with my coworkers, and… Continue reading Spending Out of Obligation
My progression in to the world of frugality has been really interesting. I've mentioned before that my first major life change was becoming vegan. A while later I discovered minimalism, and in the last few months, frugality. While minimalism and frugality are not the same, there is a definite overlap (as explained in this great article). Whilst… Continue reading It’s Expensive, It Makes You Sick…So Why Do We Eat It?
There's a brilliant meme I found online, which says, 'Vegans are like adults. First you hate them, then you become one and realise they were right all along.' It's hilarious, but it's accurate.
