The Right Thing to Do

I have been lacking on the blogging front and finding the time and energy to write has been incredibly challenging. I find myself working 9 to 8 some days and trying to make sure I eat well and get things done around the house is proving harder than expected. Luckily, my husband and I will …

Vegans on the box

My husband and I love TV, not the stupid adverts or the right wing/left wing bickering news programmes regurgitating people’s lives as entertainment, but the impressively ridiculous world that is TV series. So much more intelligent! What I love most about them now is when my husband and I turn our heads to …

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

God you are lucky! Palm oil is probably the most infamous oil right now and for some it sets off a niggling feeling that …

Octopussy

I have lived in Korea for so long now that I feel part of the furniture. Sometimes I feel so in tune with this country that I don’t notice the language barriers, the different smells, or the cultural traits that are so far removed from my own. Yet, there are moments that make me jump …

The Vegans are Coming

I decided a while ago, actually it was my 2014 resolution, that I would be a vegan that people instantly warm to. I would be glowing and radiant with the message. I even planned to be a body builder… HA! that didn’t quite happen on account that I am a lazy cow! But it is …

Have a Heart, Have a Salad

I have been in Korea for nearly 5 years on and off, and through my time in Korea I have gone from being a vegetarian to a vegan and the transition in mind as well as in diet is really something quite extraordinary. A quick explanation of how my husband Colin and I got together …
