On Our Radar
We don't know about you guys but we already feel like there is so much inspiration in the air this year. We have so much to share and talk about, which is why we thought we'd post some of it here for you to get just as excited and inspired as us! Here's the low down on what we've been loving these past few weeks. The below have been keeping us motivated, inspired and uplifted through the months of January and February, which I'm sure you would agree, are not normally the most inspiring of months. However, we feel 2018 is going to be the best year yet and so far it hasn't let us down; bringing plenty of fun, fulfilling, joyous and adventurous opportunities our way so that we can share and bring them all to your attention too!
Since Blanche opened back in December 2017 we have been seriously drooling over their images on instagram and facebook. Cardiff's very own 100% vegan bakery and cafe. We finally made it there yesterday for Nat's birthday and obviously HAD TO try more than one doughnut each. We went for a white chocolate raspberry and french toast.. the picture says it all! They were heavenly paired with coffee. The bakery sells out of their doughnuts every day so get there early to avoid disappointment! Keep your eyes peeled for a full blog post on this amazing place every soon.
2. Unprocessed - my City Dwelling Year of Reclaiming Real Food by Megan Kimble.
This refreshing and honest account of what goes into our food and what it means to eat unprocessed is an eye opener and page turner! The book details Megan's account of giving up 'processed' food for a whole year at the age of 26 whilst living in a city. This book doesn't focus on veganism, and may not be for everyone, however we feel that it's integral to educate ourselves on where our food comes from and therefor feel that we have a better understanding of the food choices we are making from reading this book.
Another gem that we recently discovered in Cardiff! Luna describes itself as an eco friendly, ethical, organic beauty and holistic therapy boutique offering luxurious nail, beauty, tanning, facial and complementary therapies. Something tells us we're going to be hitting this spot a lot this year! Stay posted to hear about the treatments we received on our last visit in a post coming soon!
If you're looking for some vegan inspo start following Veggiekins! We are obsessed with Remy's YouTube channel, blog and Instagram. Focusing on fitness and food Remy's fresh food styling, recipes, photography and bright personality makes us lust after Vegan life in NYC and LA.
5. The Good People Podcast with Ashley Wood
Our latest Woman Crush Wednesday Ashley Wood released a podcast at the beginning of the year that celebrates the personal journey of extraordinary women. It explores health and wellness, spirituality, manifestation, entrepreneurship, motherhood and much much more. We especially love her first episode on 'Nu Ways for the New Year' featuring the beautiful Ruby Warrington, author of 'Material Girl Mystic World' which we can also recommend highly recommend! In this episode both Ashley and Ruby touch on all things nu age including crystal healing, astrology, what it means to follow your 'Dharma' and 'Sober Curious.'
We’d love to hear what you guys have been loving lately and we’ll be sure to continue to share our favourite finds every month!
