Photos of the Week #41

October 13, 2015

WEEK 41 OF 52


I hope everyone is having a great week! The clocks will be rolling backwards soon, so I’m soaking up as much pre and post-work daylight as possible. It’s already dark as I creep down the stairs in the morning, and as I walk home in the evening it’s starting to become darker. I’m not complaining too much though – I’ve been wearing my favourite jumper dresses, and looking at my boots longingly, promising that I’ll wear them soon. Whilst sipping on hot apple cider. And finally opening that box of iced mince pies. Here’s what I got up to last week.

Documentary on Broadmoore

^^I tucked myself away in bed the other night to watch a documentary on Broadmoor, and Ras came to join me. He is getting cuter as the days get colder. Especially if I feed him when I get up, rather than before I leave – then he loves a good purry cuddle on the sofa while I have my coffee. Heaven.^^

Vegan cheese toastie

^^Vegan cheese toastie using our beloved Daiya. I can’t get enough of them at the moment! That might just be my laziness speaking. And my love of Daiya.^^

Meat Liquor Brighton vegan

^^Meat Liquor in Brighton, dinner with friends. Might sound like an odd place for a vegan to go, but they list their vegan options on the menu and they were pretty good! A burger, buffalo seitan wings, fries and onion rings (which were amazing! The garlic dip was rank, though).^^

pa amb tomaquet

^^Pa amb tomaquet for breakfast, made with home-grown tomatoes from Trout’s Mum. I also made bruschetta with these beauties – now if only I could grow my own!^^

Vegan caviar

^^Vegan caviar! The only photo I took at VegFest, because I was too busy stuffing my face, and this was too bonkers not to snap! Did you go to it this year? It was huge! We were queueing for so long, but it was worth it. I was cheese toastie heaven with Follow Your Heart, and picked up some chocolate, a cookie sandwich from Ms Cupcake, and some perfume from Eden Perfumes.^^

Zombie Walk London 2015

Brick lane curry house

^^Drinks in Soho with the Zombie Walk, and curry on Brick Lane with friends after VegFest. I’m sad I missed the Zombie Walk in Brighton, it’s always amazing! I look forward to finding some photos.^^

LOVE. Eden Perfumes*//Home-grown tomatoes//London//
LISTENING. The Ordinary Boys//This new video from Gnarwolves//Cat Power. So gutted I missed out on tickets for her London dates, and we’ll be in Manchester the weekend before she plays, where there are tickets available. *Sob*//

LAST WEEK(S). VegFest//Dinners with friends//Rain/Sunshine//
THIS WEEK. Manchester (any recommendations??)//Catching up on rest//A random lecture on Thursday. I’m sure I’ll report back next week as I can’t remember the details right now!//

*I’d heard so much about Eden Perfumes – they’re a 100% vegan perfume company that don’t test on animals, and can re-create pretty much any fragrance. I was a bit skeptical, especially as I don’t really like the idea of ripping off other people’s fragrances, but at the same time it’s almost impossible to find cruelty-free perfume. I sniffed a few samples at VegFest and wasn’t too impressed, until I tried Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb (one of my FAVOURITE perfumes) – and it was amazing! I snapped up a 30ml bottle for just £12. Definitely check these guys out – they are based in Brighton and Hove, but you can order online.

    I keep getting massive cravings for toasties, you’re not helping! xx

    Ah toastie looks amazing. Was at VegFest too, and the traders have not shattered my dreams of a vegan cheese and wine evening.

    That toastie looks amazing. I want it. I have yet to try Daiya but I will soon.
