The Vegan Gem of London’s Soho – Mildred’s

May 1, 2019

With its pastel blue exterior, cute pavement cafe style outdoor seating area, Mildreds, in the heart of London’s Soho, is as far removed from its original use as a seedy sex club, (complete with S&M padded cell in the basement) as you can get! Mildreds has been serving beautiful vegetarian and vegan food since the 80’s, and has grown so much in popularity, that it…

Four Months of Being Vegan

April 16, 2019

I am going to say straight from the starting blocks that I will not be marching you straight down to Tesco for some pak choi and mung beans. Nor, will I ever judge anyone for their diet choices.

Well Las Iguanas, the popular latin american inspired food chain, encourages you to do just that.

How City Breaks have shaped our Holiday Habits

April 1, 2019

The cases were closed. One last check of the weight, just to reassure myself for the ninety-ith time that they were not over our allowance, I satisfied myself of this and locked the case. Wheeling this last bit of luggage over to the front door to join the other bags, I was satisfied that all was ready. City breaks have shaped our holiday habits for…

What Does Your Version of Blog Success Look Like?

March 26, 2019
