New Forest Vegetarian Pub Guide

A few years ago, way before I even started blogging, my dad bought me a book covering all the pubs in the New Forest area as I was living super close to it at the time (it’s quite extensive and includes a lot of the outskirts as well). It’s compiled by CAMRA (Campaign for Real…… Continue reading New Forest Vegetarian Pub Guide

Boxercise Ft. 9Round Southampton

[9Round Southampton has now closed] If you’ve been following my fitness journey for a while, you’ll know that cardio is most certainly not my strong point. I’ve bounced from boxercise classes, to sprintervals to joining a running club and getting up to 5k. I stuck with the running for about a year, it obviously works…… Continue reading Boxercise Ft. 9Round Southampton

HarBAR on 6th

[ad – gifted meal for purpose of review] If you live in Southampton you’ve probably at least heard of the Southampton Harbour Hotel, if not had a little sneak peak around the area.

7Bone ft. Moving Mountains

It’s been a few years since I have eaten at 7Bone Burger Co but last night my social media was blowing up with the announcement of ‘Daisy’s Revenge’ – their brand new vegan burger. This burger features the infamous Moving Mountains patty, entirely plant-based and packed full of goodness and nutritional content. Topped with vegan cheese, minced…… Continue reading 7Bone ft.

Mitch, along with his lovely wife Shirin, produce fast-paced plant-based meals that are perfect for anyone on the go with a busy lifestyle or, more like me, and sometimes you just…… Continue reading Mitch’s Kitchen

Save Waste This Christmas

It’s all getting very exciting! Only one week until the big day, trees are going up and the cupboards are slowly stocking up with food. Plans are hopefully coming together and Christmas shopping is on its way to being completed, finally! Unfortunately, though, Christmas (and any big celebration, really) tends to be a time of…… Continue reading Save Waste This Christmas

Offbeet New Forest: Give a Cluck

I was invited via the Southampton Bloggers gang to organise a meal out at Offbeet New Forest. This is their brand new venue at only five months old and it’s very different to their original Wickham location. The restaurant at Sunnyfields Farm is much bigger and serves up a totally different menu (and different cake!)…… Continue reading Offbeet New Forest: Give a Cluck
