THE VEGAN KIND | FEBRUARY ’17

Another month, another box of vegan goodies. Naturally there was a bit of a pink theme in this months Vegan Kind box due to it being the ‘month of love.’ I’m still standing by the whole who needs love when you have lots of delicious food?

AN EVENING WITH DELICIOUSLY ELLA

I very rarely go to book signings. The idea of having to queue up just to briefly chat for a few seconds with the author before being rushed away has never really appealed to me. However, when I saw that Ella Mills (formally Woodward) was doing not only a signing in Glasgow in support of her new recipe book ‘Deliciously Ella with Friends‘ but also a Q&A session I jumped at the chance to go. As you probably all know, I am a huge believer in living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and my main concern in this is always food. Ella is one of the people that continues to inspire me to eat well while also encouraging me to actually get into the kitchen and cook (something I’m not very confident with).

SOURCED BOX | FEBRUARY ’17

Firstly I want to apologise for my disappearance over the past two weeks. The end of last month and the whole of this month is pretty hectic. Turns out I’m not overly good with balancing uni work, a social life and my other interests and it’s unfortunately the latter that suffers most. However, I’ve made time this evening to write up my monthly Sourced Box post.

What with February being the month of Valentines Day, this months box heavily reflects that. From heart shaped snacks to indulgent chocolate, who needs true love when you have snacks?

‘FILLING STATION’ | REVIEW

Today is my sister’s birthday and as is the annual tradition we went out for dinner in celebration. Usually we go to the same places but last night we went to Filling Station which is an American restaurant and bar that has recently opened fairly nearby. As we had never been before and as it isn’t an overly common restaurant chain, I thought I would write up a little review of the place.

SOURCED BOX | JANUARY ’17

A year ago I received the first ever Sourced Box. 12 months later I still have no regrets about signing up to this healthy snacking subscription. I still feel that same excitement I felt that very first month whenever I receive the dispatched email.

The first box of 2017 is packed full of treats to give your body that extra nutritious boost we all feel we need after the festive period. From vegetable crisps to raw chocolate, you can start the year off on a health high.

2016: A YEAR IN REVIEW

For many 2016 was one hell of a rubbish year. Things could not be more different for me. 2016 was by far the best year of my life for multiple reasons and I thought I would sum up just a few on here.

I also made a video reflecting on the past 12 months and talking about my goals for 2017 which I will link at the end.

A POEM

A few weeks ago in my Journalism & Creative Writing class we were told that we had to write poetry. Now, I hadn’t written a poem since I was in primary school so this was a frightening prospect, especially since it’s a workshop class so I would be reading it out to a few of my classmates in order for them to give feedback. Surprisingly I enjoyed the poetry classes more than I thought I would.
