As we look to 2018, a lot of us want to start the new year with a change, and it’s fantastic to see so many people have signed up to take part in Veganuary for the first month of the year. I wanted to share this article that I wrote for Vegan Food & Living Magazine as I think it offers some practical help for those of us who want to do a little more for the vegan movement. I’d love to hear your thoughts, so do comment below! Wishing you all a wonderful New Year’s Eve, and all the… View Post

I know that milk and cheese can be the final things that stop people from moving to a plant-based diet, or even if you just want to cut down on animal products, knowing what milk to use can be a little overwhelming and confusing.  Today I’m going to run through my top vegan/dairy-free milks, and what drinks they are most suited to. I’ve been vegan for almost 3 years, and before I moved over to the V side, I dabbled with dairy-free milk on and off, as I felt it was a healthier option.   Something that you may have already experienced is milk… View Post

It’s finally here! I’m beyond excited to tell you kitty cats that my luxury, vegan and cruelty-free subscription box, TGV Luxe Edit, is now available to order! You know by now that I am an utter skincare junkie, and I also have a bit of a wanderlust problem, which is why I wanted to combine these two elements with veganism to offer you wonderful products each month, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I like to think that by seeing that vegan products can be amazing quality and just luxurious as more widely used items, non-vegans and the… View Post

    Two words. VEGAN HALLOUMI. Yes, for actual years have I been dreaming of this becoming a reality. I used to love halloumi as a veggie, and (no judgement please) I kind of missed it, especially at summer time. I’d heard a rumour on the vegan street that the amazing people over at Violife were apparently working on a Mediterranean style offering, and I’m VERY happy to say it now exists. I was kindly sent over some cheesy samples to try out. I also got sent some of the Violife Blu, which will appear in a separate post, so… View Post

Do you have a goals list? I’m sure you do. I’ve always had a list of things I want to achieve, in fact, ever since I was a nipper I’ve been obsessed with lists…lists about lists…. Mr Green V will vouch that there are notebooks and post-its all around my desk, although I am trying to be a bit more digital, especially with my increasing travel. Anyway, I digress. Ever since I started out in my journey as a writer/editor/journalist I’ve always wanted my own column. Of course my blog is my special space to write whatever I wish, but… View Post

Guys – I have something really exciting to share with you. When I was back in the UK I had the chance to try out two meals from the very kind peeps over at Mindful Chef – and I was not disappointed! Mindful Chef is a food box company with a difference. The team is dedicated to providing amazing meals that not only taste delicious, but are free from refined carbs and dairy. Oh, and all meals are gluten-free too! Although there are meat/fish options available, a great deal of the offerings are 100% vegan! What is also really cool… View Post

I know where paradise is, but don’t worry, I’m not going to keep it to myself! As part of my research for my vegan guide to Mallorca, Mr Green V and I headed to the beautiful Balearic island on a mission to find the best places to recommend to you, my lovely readers. The good news – Mallorca is full of picturesque locations, the bad news – we had to leave and return to Belgium and normal life at the end of our trip. We stayed in the village of Valldemossa, set into the Tramuntana mountains about 20km outside Palma… View Post

I’m so excited to share with you some wonderful news. I’ve partnered up with the lovely people over at Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land and I’ll be donating 10% of the profits made from the items sold in The Green V Shop!   I first encountered Safe Haven in December 2015 when my Uncle and his partner gifted me a letter saying they had donated enough money to feed a donkey for a week as part of my present. Last year they sponsored a donkey for a whole year from the sanctuary, and I’m happy to say… View Post

You don’t have to be a detective to realise that I enjoy a nude lip. Occasionally I’ll flirt with a darker or more reddish lipstick (like this gorgeous one from Guilty Free which I reviewed here) but most of the time I tend to stick to what I feel suits me best.Recently, I was very kindly sent the Lippy Girl Vegocentric lipstick in shade Schmoopy from the organic and natural beauty distributors, Botanical Brands. Let me start off by saying, if you’re after that mysterious ‘your lips but better’ shade, then this is the post for you. Not only does this… View Post
