I’m a Life Science book publisher in north-east London (okay, Essex!) Here in Woodford, the city is just 15 minutes away on the Central line yet my husband Pete and I get to enjoy rural bliss on the edge of Epping Forest with our King Charles Cavalier JD. Ten years after graduating with a degree in English Literature, I decided it was time I did some writing of my own, so I set up this site in 2015 as my foray into the blogging world. It began as a simple lifestyle blog, reviewing London bars and books I’d enjoyed, sharing holiday photos, recipes, and fashion inspiration. In 2016 everything got quite wedding-focused, as I tied the knot with my husband Pete that summer, down in beautiful south Devon where I grew up.
Then in March this year I took the step from vegetarian to vegan, and I’ve just begun an MSc in Animal Welfare, Ethics and Law. It felt natural for my blog to reflect this, and in the last few posts there’s been more of an emphasis on ethical fashion, rural retreats and cruelty-free beauty. Expect more of that in the months to come; as my interest in animal advocacy and compassionate living grows, I hope this blog can become a place to reflect on issues like intensive farming and companion animal care, as well as a resource for finding great vegan fashion, beauty products and food. I hope you enjoy all of that!
