The Vegetarian Lifestyle

I recently wrote a blog post about how my diet and body has changed massively in the last few months. Some weeks ago, I wasn’t sure where my new diet would fit in but now I know where I fall in nicely. I am a vegetarian. This new way of life wasn’t planned. It was something I ever even considered until earlier this year. Although I was never really a meat-eater. I did like the occasional chicken, beef burger, and the rest. My body and my food cravings started changing this year and I just found myself going off many things, including meat. It all happened naturally and I am very happy and comfortable with my new way of living. The Vegetarian Lifestyle Picture

The Vegetarian Lifestyle

Being a vegetarian simply means I don’t eat meat or fish. I take the occasional eggs and dairy products. Sugar is completely off my diet. So no soft drinks at all, and no sugar in my cappuccino or anything else. So far so good, this vegetarian lifestyle is working perfectly for me. I feel and look great. I can’t imagine not being a vegetarian now. It has taken me this long to find the diet that works for my system but I am glad I found it.

A diet like many things is a personal thing. I won’t advise anyone to get off meat and fish and eat the vegetarian way. It is something you have to decide for yourself. I know being vegetarian/vegan is quite popular now, which is one of the reasons why many more people are going along with it. The thing is if you do it for the wrong reasons, you will find yourself regressing very quickly.

You can read more about eating a healthy vegetarian diet on the NHS website. Loads of information on there to help you if you are contemplating eating the vegetarian way.

Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing. Have a lovely day.

 

Charity of the Month – Olive Pathway

Gender-based violence (GBV) is an issue very close to my heart. I have witnessed the damaging effects of GBV. It is one of those things you have to experience to really understand how damaging it is. Many women suffer in silence and endure years upon years of abuse. These women suffer mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially. Many of the women experiencing GBV see no way out which is really disturbing.

This is why I am so passionate about GBV and why I support amazing charities tackling domestic violence. The charity of the month is Olive Pathway. If you follow my Facebook page and Twitter, you should know about this great charity already, since I am forever sharing their posts on my social media pages.

Olive Pathway is a charity tackling domestic abuse and gender-based violence within black and minority ethnic groups in Greater Manchester and beyond. The charity’s mission is to eradicate domestic violence and eliminate inequality.

Product Review: RITUALS Interior Perfume

*Affiliate link.

I am forever buying fragrances because I love my home smelling great. RITUALS is a brand I fell in love with many years ago while visiting Amsterdam. I walked into a RITUALS shop and there were so many sweet-smelling products. Since then, I have had a soft spot for RITUALS products and I love trying them. I needed a new home fragrance and decided to grab this RITUALS Interior Perfume some weeks ago. We already have some RITUALS diffusers in our home and they smell divine. So going for this home fragrance was a natural choice. I opted for the sweet orange and cedarwood fragrance.

Why I Love RITUALS

One of the main reasons why I love RITUALS is because they don’t test on animals. I am gradually only shopping from brands that don’t test on animals. Once I am done with many products, I won’t be buying them again. Cruelty-free brands are the only ones I will be shopping from going forward.

PROS
  1. A little of this spray goes a long way. A pump is all you need to fragrance a room.
  2. The packaging is great! It comes with a pump which is brilliant! I will definitely be reusing the bottle once the spray is finished.
  3. I adore the fragrance. It smells amazing.
  4. I like the fact that I can easily grab a bottle from Amazon £22.20. The link to purchase is below.

CONS
  1. The fragrance is lovely but the cedarwood is quite strong, so a little goes a long way. You may find the fragrance overpowering if you spray too much.

Overall, I like this RITUALS home fragrance. I will be exploring other fragrances in their collection. If you like the sound of this home fragrance, grab it via the Amazon link below.

Have you tried this RITUALS Interior Perfume? What are your thoughts?
