Pizza Punks Newcastle: Anarchy in the Oven

I love Pizza. Pizza is life. Pizza is my favourite food, so when I saw Pizza Punks was coming to Newcastle, I was pretty excited to try somewhere new for that pizza fix. If I had to choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life if would easily be Pizza. There are so many possibilities on toppings you would never tire of eating it every day. However, since turning Vegan back in July I’d accepted a life of mediocre pizza with no cheese. Vegan cheese is quite difficult to get right. I’ve tried quite a few and there’s…

Ethical Living: Five Changes I’ve Made to Live More Consciously.

Ethical living – the word on everybody’s lips at the moment. Now it’s not just about reducing the amount of plastic you use, but that’s a good start. Over recent months everybody has become more and more aware of the impact we are making on the planet. Coffee shops like Caffe Nero and Pret are rewarding you with discounts for bringing your own reusable cup when grabbing yourself a beverage. Iceland has vouched to remove the use of plastic in their own brand products by 2023. Over the past year or so it seems everybody is cottoning on to how…

Becx Beauty: Vegan and Cruelty-Free beauty treatments at home.

Since going cruelty-free back in 2016 there are a few things I just accepted I probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy the same way. Facials were one of them. I did a little research into cruelty-free spa brands but struggled to find places local to me that offered treatments using cruelty-free products. The majority of the places I’ve been in the past tend to use brands like Elemis, Declor and Clarins and I’d just come to peace with the fact having a good facial was a thing of the past. So when my friend and fellow blogger, Rebecca told me…

Secondhand Style #2 – They Call Me Mellow Yellow

  Secondhand Style #2 Top: F+F (Depop) | Trousers: Zara (Charity Shop) | Handbag: Accessorize (Charity Shop)  Back in 2017 I posted about a feature I was going to introduce called Secondhand Style. A series where I would be showcasing my favourite charity shop finds. At this time I was buying quite a lot of clothing from Depop and charity shops. But as the summer hit, I found myself shopping more and more on the high-street. So the series quickly dwindled. If you saw my last post you’ll know I’ve decided to give up fast fashion completely. So I’m happy…

Saying Goodbye To Fast Fashion and Shopping More Ethically.

Today I’m here to discuss some thoughts on fast fashion. Now I’m the first to admit I love fashion. Clothes are a huge interest of mine and I love experimenting with different styles and trends. I’ve tried in the past to have a ‘minimalistic’ wardrobe with basic colours etc. But that really does not work for me – at all. I love colour, I love prints and I love having fun with my outfits. But that doesn’t mean I can’t shop more consciously. It’s weird but since turning vegetarian a year ago, I’ve become more aware of how my lifestyle…
