It’s the beginning of a new year and you’re (hopefully) starting Veganuary. It might be your first time living a vegan lifestyle and exposing yourself to a different way of living. Lots of people can struggle when they first try going vegan but there’s a few golden tips that will help you succeed in Veganuary. Stick to these and you’ll find keeping vegan a breeze.
Plane food isn’t renowned for being Michelin Star, but you at least hope for a meal with more than a few seconds of thought put into it. Luckily for vegans, there is almost always a vegan option you can pre book, but what are they really like? Is enough being done to ensure vegan plane food is good enough?
For me, it really depends on which airline you’re flying with. Hands down, British Airways always provide really decent quality vegan plane food. On a recent 13 hour flight, I got a breakfast with hash browns, beans, spinach and tomato, and then a pearl barley risotto for lunch.
Many often people whine that veganism isn’t accessible to all because of the cost, with new research claiming to back this up. However, many vegans disagree with these findings, claiming them to be completely untrue. So, does veganism cost £2000 more per year or not?
The research claims that this high cost stems from the need to buy vegan specific products, such as vegan meats, cheeses, milks etc. It also includes higher menu item prices and supplements, averaging at a total of £162 extra per month.

That’s right! After they launched their vegan revolution a few months back that included sandwiches, soups and the first Veggie Pret, they’re now taking it one step further.
In order to support Veganuary, Pret are releasing an additional 15 vegan options to add to their menu. Veganuary was set up to help people change their lifestyle to be healthier, more compassionate and environmentally friendly.
Over the past 10 years alone, the number of vegans has increased by 360%.
PETA launched the UK’s first vegan tube-station takeover on New Year’s Eve to inspire commuters to pledge to help animals, protect the environment, and get healthy by going vegan in 2017.

Too Faced is one of my absolute favourite makeup brands, being completely cruelty free and with lots of vegan options! Too Faced is also the creator of one of the most highly regarded mascaras out there, the Better Than Sex Mascara.
As well as having a fabulous name, it’s everything you could want in a mascara. It’s also only £19 too, so very good value!
With over 18,000 reviews and an average of 4.5/5 stars, this is a mascara I was very excited to try. I used to swear by Benefits ‘They’re Real’ mascara, but since they test on animals I’m not going to buy it anymore. I like my lashes thick and long, but definitely not clumpy.
Sleep is imperative for our health, happiness and performance both physically and mentally. It’s the one thing that can make everything else better in our life but what can we do to sleep better?
According to research, our diet plays a vital role in improving or worsening the quality of our sleep. There are certain foods that are called sleep promoters as they help induce sleep and some are called sleep stealers because they can potentially rob you of precious sleep and leave you tossing and turning at night.
Here’s a list of do’s and don’ts for a good night’s sleep.
Nikocado Avocado has pretty much gone from small time YouTuber to starring on the Daily Mail overnight, why? Because he’s hopped on the bandwagon of slating veganism for views. Original.
