Fortitude Valley, described by Visit Brisbane as “a contradiction in itself – raw, yet sophisticated. It is where elegance and style meet grungy and offbeat” It’s a fantastic, kinda grubby, little gem about a mile outside of the Brissy CBD and I absolutely adore it! When I first arrived in Australia back in August 2014,… Continue reading Fortitude Valley Forever
Last Tuesday Kerry and I decided to head to the small town of Waltham Abbey in Essex. It isn’t very far from us, and I have often heard how pretty it is there, but I guess sometimes when things are on your doorstep you don’t always stop and appreciate them.

This was such a welcome surprise to me and to (I’m sure) the 500,000 other plant-based eaters in the… Continue reading Quorn & Linda McCartney go Vegan

If you are familiar with my work you will know I am a huge chickpea/ hummus addict, so knowing that such a snack existed, that I had… Continue reading All’s Well and Good in Midleton
