LaBante London | SS17 Preview

Product launch! 
I was so excited to be invited along to the preview of LaBante London's SS17 collection in collaboration with Shelly Vella (ex- editor of Cosmopolitan)

LaBante are a London based handbag & accessories company.
They are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, ethical and environmentally friendly! They are also PETA certified (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)

As it states on their website:
"We want to give consumers the experience of luxury, of the finest craftsmanship, of a timeless aesthetic, while respecting the world we live in. "

Read more about LaBante London & their company on my previous blog post here


The preview was held in the stylish Ethos resturant on Oxford street in London. I've always wanted to visit Ethos as i have often walked by and the food looks so inviting! 
Ethos is an award winning self-service restaurant, serving up meat-free breakfast, lunches and dinners.
I highly reccomend popping in and trying out their delicious selection of food! It's amazing!

Inside Ethos, LaBante's NEW handbags looked beautiful placed amongst autumnal trees & leaves, along with some of their gorgeous jewellery on natural tree trunks. It looked really decorative and pretty, perfect for taking some instagram pictures! haha

The small red satchel caught my eye along with the studded black bag!
I own a beige LaBante bow bag and wear it everyday! It's one of my all time favoruite bags! The quality is amazing, it looks adorable & chic as well as being comforable to wear and easy to use with lots of room (it even fits in my large SLR, which is a huge bonus) 
The jewelry being showcased was stunning and quite delicate,for everday or for a special occaision. I particularly liked a silver moon and star necklace.

Sun-dried tomato hummus

Vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, low oilWith only a few ingredients, you can make the perfect, delicious hummus at home!
Hummus contains a good source of vitamins, macronutrients, minerals, protein and fibre!
Hummus is such a quick & easy side to make. It is the perfect snack, paired with chopped carrots, breadsticks, crackers, rice cakes...! 
I always keep a can of chickpeas on hand, just incase i am in need of a wholesome fresh batch of yummy hummus! 
Sun-dried tomato is such a delicious addition to hummus, due to its oil content. This recipe only uses the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes!

Prepration- 5 minutes
Serves- Approximatly 6-8 servings

-2 cans of chickpeas (washed & drained)
-1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes (drained) 
-1 teaspoon of oil from the sun-dried tomato jar ( or you can use olive oil)
-3 tablespoons of tahini paste
-3 garlic cloves
-1/2 of lemon (juice)
-Pinch of pepper
-1 tablespoon of water

Step 1- Place the chickpeas, sun-dried tomatoes, oil, tahini paste, garlic, lemon juice, pepper  and water into a blender or food processor and whizz up on high until smooth.
(Add a little extra water or lemon juice if the hummus is too thick)

That's it! 

Serve with breadsticks, warm bread, carrots, celery...what ever you fancy!
I served my hummus with some japanease Black sesame rice crackers from Clearspring! These are so crunchy and delicious, highly reccomend as a healthy snack!

Keep stored in a sealed container in the fridge and eat within 3 days!
