The vegetarian journey and eating out

*Collaborative post.

I went full vegetarian last year and the vegetarian journey has been an amazing experience. It was not something I planned. It kind of just happened but I am glad it did. Being vegetarian has changed my life completely for the better. I am now very conscious of what I do eat and I try to eat clean as much as possible everyday. The funniest part is I don’t miss eating meat or chicken at all. I was never a fish eater right from when I was a little girl, so no issues with that. However, unlike many vegetarians I know, going vegan is not on my radar. I love my free range eggs in moderation, so I don’t ever see myself completely going off that. The vegetarian journey has been effortless for me and I am looking forward to exploring more vegetarian dishes.

Speaking of vegetarian dishes, are you vegan, vegetarian or interested in plant-based dining options? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you are reading the right post. As the lockdown restrictions ease off, you may be considering getting out and about. If you are after cool dining recommendations for vegan/vegetarian restaurants or plant-based restaurants, here is one amazing Italian restaurant you should check out if you are in the City of London.

This restaurant is great dining option for those who love Italian food. The Vegan/Vegetarian menu is full of yummy delicacies. I spent ages salivating at the thought of eating many of the dishes, especially the Spaghetti Vegani roasted pepper and tomato sauce topped with toasted pumpkin seeds. It sounds divine!

This buzzing restaurant provides all day dining. It is in the City of London and there is outside seating available, so plenty of space at Sicily by Da Scalzo.  If you like the sound of this restaurant, you should check out SquareMeal website. It is a fantastic website for a variety of party venues, meeting venues, eateries, and wedding venues. As the lockdown restrictions ease, now is a great time to treat yourself or your loved ones to SquareMeal gift vouchers. There are over 7,000 restaurants and bars in London and the UK on SquareMeal Website. So there should be a dining option to keep you salivating. Booking on SquareMeal is a great idea because prior to booking, you can get all the information you need about the restaurants you are interested. The booking process is also very easy. Customers can make reservations online, over the phone, and via email. Also, anyone who books on SquareMeal website can automatically collect points (100 points per restaurant and 400 for a venue), which can be exchanged for luxury gifts from high-end brands.

I think this service is amazing especially for the foodies. Vegetarian restaurants are on my radar and I will be exploring a few this year. What do you think of Sicily by Da Scalzo? Have you dined there before? Will you be using the SquareMeal website? Are you vegan/vegetarian? How has the journey been for you?

 

How working from home has changed our wardrobes

I have been working from home for about 7 years now. So I am kind of used to having a work from home wardrobe for my week days. However, the world was pretty much thrown into working from home last year and so many workers had to adapt to the new way of life. Working from home has definitely changed our wardrobes. When you work from home, you want to look decent for video calls (if any) but comfortable at the same time. Ideally, you should be out of your pyjamas but that may not be the case for everyone. From my experience from working from home, your shopping habits usually changes dramatically. The pieces and accessories you would typically go for if you had to go outside of your home for work would not appeal to you when you are stuck at home working.

How working from home has changed our wardrobes

Here are 3 ways working from home has changed my wardrobe –

Shopping habits

Like I previously said, this is usually the first thing to change when you start working from home. You realise you don’t need to shop regularly and when you do go shopping, you go for pieces that would keep you comfy at home, but not necessarily glamorous. instead of straight black trousers for example, you may find yourself buying a pair of leggings or joggers.

Accessories take a back seat

I really can’t remember the last time I bought a bag or footwear but then again, I feel like I have loads already and these days I hardly have use for them. Working from home means no commuting so the bags and shoes don’t need to be upgraded.

You shop your closet

Working from home for many also gives them the opportunity to shop their closet. Apart from the fact that there is more time to get dressed which gives you time to dig into your wardrobe, you may also find that you have more confidence to mix and match pieces you may not dare wear to the office. This for me is a big plus. I get to wear all sorts these days in the privacy of my home.

Are you working from home? How has it changed your sense of fashion, your wardrobe and your shopping habits? Please sound off in the comments section below.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Beauty Muse: Emma Watson

Hey beauty lovers! I hope you have all had a beautiful week. The beauty muse this month is the stunning Emma Watson. I think she deserves the spot as a beauty muse. Emma Watson has some really amazing facial features. She is a flawless beauty. I have been a huge fan of Emma Watson since her days in Harry Potter. I stumbled upon some of Emma Watson’s beauty tips and I really enjoyed reading it. Here are some excerpts from her interview with intothegloss:

Less makeup, more bare skin

The object for me when applying makeup is you should be able to see as much skin as possible. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve embraced my freckles much more and I want to be able to see them…I think the look of natural skin is beautiful. I didn’t want to get blanked out!

This is a great beauty tip. The older I have gotten, I like to show off more of my bare skin. The layers and layers of makeup are now a turn off for me. Rather than burying my skin under huge piles of makeup, I take the time to nourish my skin properly so I don’t need as much makeup.

Clean eye and red lip combo

If I’m doing my makeup myself, I do quite a clean eye and a matte red lip. The red lip always comes out if something important is happening….With the lip, I tend to do a soft line on the top of my eye in brown, and what I call the banana—but that’s probably not the technical term for the contour above your eye. 

I love the look of a clean eye and matte red lip. That draws all attention to the lips in a good way and the clean eye tones down the look of matte red lips.
