Rose and Chocolate Raw Slice

Rose and Chocolate Raw Slice

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a dessert with you all! It’s also been a while since I posted a recipe. I’ve had the urge to play around with some raw slices and chocolates and wanted to include rose in one of them. I went with the slice and the complimentary chocolate to sweeten everyones taste buds.  The chocolates I’ll make will be either coconut or peppermint centred. If you have any preference in which flavour you’d prefer, please let me know in the comments below! / Read More »

Note: Sustainable living is something we want to explore more as it’s integral to living a minimalist vegan lifestyle. That said, finding sustainable vegan-friendly clothing has been a huge pain point for us and we’re sure it’s been challenging for you as well. That’s why we’ve partnered with Summer Edwards, sustainable fashion writer and consultant, who is going to give us some great tips on what sustainable vegan textiles to look out for when shopping.

The Myths of Minimalism

Note: We’re excited to introduce you to our special guest writer, Evelyn Hill, a minimalist, a vegan and a super talented creative. You can find more of Evelyn’s work on her Twitter and Instagram

Growing up in a military family, minimalism was a way of life for me. Every couple of years we would move house — sometimes across the country, sometimes overseas. We never kept too much stuff and I was taught the value of what was necessary and what brought me joy at a very young age.

There wasn’t room for much else, to be honest.

So imagine my surprise when I realised that minimalism wasn’t how other people’s lives played out. It wasn’t until I found this blog that I began noticing the massive amounts of myths that plague the minimalist lifestyle — many of them I knew, from personal experience, to be flat out wrong.

So I’ve endeavoured to set the record straight about a few of them here. From me to you, here’s a list of ten myths of minimalism that need to be debunked right now. / Read More »

content consumption

The verdict is out. Most of us are addicted to the internet and whomever can overcome excessive content consumption wins. Period.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m totally hooked on content. It has been my downfall for many many years now.

I’m still a fairly productive human being when it comes to work. But outside of that I’m pretty useless. I rate myself mediocre for managing personal relationships, cooking, cleaning, reading fiction books, writing and exercise.  / Read More »

Easy Vegan Brown Lentil Stew

Easy Vegan Brown Lentil Stew

I’ve been eating this super duper easy brown lentil stew (which so happens to be vegan) for as long as I can remember. It’s always been a staple in my family and it never gets old. As soon as Autumn creeps in, this meal becomes pretty much a weekly rotation. Quite cheap to make, super easy and relatively quick for how much yield you get. I like to make this meal in bulk and eat it over two days for lunch and dinner. I normally don’t freeze it because there’s potato in it but if you wanted to do so, you can swap the potatoes for carrots and/or celery and it will freeze really well. / Read More »
