Jimmy's Iced Coffee | New vegan drink

After a long wait, Jimmy's Iced coffee have finally released a brand new dairy-free & vegan drink, YAY!

What is Jimmy's Iced Coffee + why have they brought out a dairy-free option?
Jimmy's is a UK based coffee company.
As stated by Jimmy Cregan, Jimmy's founder- "People contact me all the time on social media asking for a dairy-free version, so we had to make them one. It’s really rad that the people who are dairy intolerant now have the opportunity to come and join our party.”


The Jimmy's Iced Coffee cartons have always caught my eye as I love their retro, American vibe.
I'm very happy their vegan drink is mint green, I can take loads of instagram photos with it- haha.

Spicy falafel pattie recipe | ft Zim's Tribe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, lightly fried

Falafels are easy & quick to make and by adding in a delicious marinade, you can make spicy/curried falafels in no time!

I used the delicious Zim's Tribe marinade to mildly spice these falafels.
Oh my goodness, the Zim's Tribe sauce is absolutely divine, it's the perfect sauce for dipping/adding into anything. Me & my whole family are obsessed :D

These falafels are vegan + gluten-free, as well as being high in protein due to the chickpeas. They are also lightly fried as opposed to deep frying so they are a much healthier option.

The Vegan Kind beauty box | August 2017 unboxing

Nothing like trying out new and exciting vegan beauty products, especially when they are 100% vegan & cruelty-free, yay!
I got my hands on this months The Vegan Kind beauty box and it's a good'un!
Find out more about The Vegan Kind on my previous TVK blog post here.


This box includes
-Figs & Rouge 3-1 Active-hydro cream
-Chirp Body Softness Hair Mask
-Zerreau Waterless Body Wash
-Tisserand Happy Aromatherapy Roller Ball
-Eden Perfumes Daisy Perfume
-Faith In Nature Coconut & Frangipani Shampoo
I am the biggest fan of Figs & Rouge since trying out their amazing AM-PM cream. It's my go-to moisturizer.
In this box, you get the 3-1 Hydro cream which I've been wanting to try out for a while.
It's a great cream for my face as it feels hydrating and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking wonderful!

Another fave has to be the Chirp Hair Mask. I love trying out new hair products, especially hydrating masks as my hair is very long and dry.
I tried this mask and I have to say, this is one of the best cruelty-free hair masks I have tested. 
It left my hair super soft and silky with shine which my hair has been lacking in recently.  I think using it on a regular basis, you will see even better results. 

The Vegan Kind boxes never fail to disappoint me. Love them :)

The chocolate cake is light, crumbly, moist...just the perfect chocolate cake! Plus, how stunning does it look *drooling*!!!

This will probably shock some of you, but I've never had a pop tart!
I've always seen pop tarts on Instagram, social media and on the shelves in supermarkets and really like the look of them, but as they aren't vegan...was'nt able to try them.

Peach nice-cream | ft Candy Kittens

Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, natural sugars

Just a few wholesome ingredients can create a delicious iced treat!
I LOVE nice-cream as it's not only tasty but packed full of natural ingredients which are a healthier alternative to ice-cream and literally tastes the same (or even better!).
Blending frozen bananas makes a divine dessert, but add in peach for a pop of fruity flavour!
I was inspired by my favourite sweeties, the new 'Sweet Peach' flavour from Candy Kittens and wanted to make a dessert to show my appreciation (and to nibble on with them too).
