The Vegan Kind Snack Box Review

I have seen these boxes in some of the vegan magazines I have been reading, they looked great and I was lucky enough to be gifted one for my birthday from a family member, it came jam packed full of amazing goodies, some of which I had never even heard of before, I wanted to share my experience of this snack box with you all.

31 Years Old

I am 31 years old today, 31 years old, when I stop and think about it, it really is hard to believe, the years have gone by so fast, It only feels like yesterday that I was out playing on the front, in the street I grew up on with my friends, friends that have long since moved on, married, had children or moved away with work, I am a dad, have a great job and working on me.

Having said that though, I am grateful for today, for the friends that I do have and the family around me because I wouldn’t be where I am now, today, without them pushing me in every way to be a better me and supporting me in the choices I make.
I may be celebrating another birthday as a single pringle but I have faith that one day I will meet someone who wants to be with me just for who I am, someone willing to give me a chance, for now though I am going to enjoy my day.

Salt Of The Earth Deodorant

I guess deodorant isn’t something you would really pay all that much attention to, I know I didn’t, I would walk into the store find one you like and walk out, right?

Since going Vegan I have started looking more and more into what is inside products, what makes them work and deodorant was one of them products I wanted to replace, I won’t go into the reasons as this is a review.

After I had decided I no longer wanted to use aerosol deodorant anymore I began searching for something that wouldn’t let me get smelly during the day, that was good for my body and as a bonus would smell good (the last point wasn’t mandatory) I found so many different solutions, I could make my own deodorant, much like powder variety you get from Lush or I could buy a deodorant from a company that already had the formula worked out, I choose the latter, that is when I found Salt Of The Earth from Crystal Spring.

Save Some Green Toothbrush

Today I want to talk about toothbrushes, yep that is right toothbrushes, for as long as I can remember I have been using a generic toothbrush you can pick up at any chemist or health store, the kind with nylon bristles and plastic handles, you know the ones, right? Recently I discovered bamboo toothbrushes made with bamboo bristles and a bamboo handle, much nicer on the environment as they degrade much better when you put them into the trash, and the materials they are made from are responsibly sourced also they don’t give off nasty chemicals when they degrade so and overall better for the environment.

So what is the toothbrush actually like Rich?

It comes delivered in a brown paper packet, there is no plastic to open, simply tear the top of the packet and remove the brush, you can put the paper packet right in the trash and it will bio-degrade, or pop it in the compost bin if you have one.

Llandudno March 2017

I had some annual leave to use up before April 1st, I have been thinking about taking it for a while and now and as it is almost April 1st it seemed like a good time to get something in the diary. The UK has been having a nice spout of warm weather recently so I decided to take advantage of it and planned a day out to Llandudno, just me and my camera.

Llandudno isn’t all that far away from home actually, it only takes about an hour to get there, I had a lovely walk around exploring the seafront and taking pictures along the way. I really enjoyed just being out there, my earphones in my ears, camera in my hand just enjoying the moment.

One thing I did see while I was out today was love, lots of people in love, walking along the beach, hand in hand, chatting about various things, laughing with one another, I hope one day I can have that.

Toms Shoes

New shoes you say? I hardly ever buy new shoes I either can’t find ones that are comfy enough or I just can’t justify the large amounts of money some of the shoes cost for the very short life they seem to live, however I have been looking for some slip on slip off type shoes to replace my old tatty vans which had seen better days, they had a massive hole in the bottom and my feet would get soaked every time I went outside when the floor was wet or damp, which in the UK is pretty much all the time, so they had to go.

Liar Liar & Fat Rabbit Review

Liar Liar has been open in town for a while now but I have never been, today I decided to give it a shot.

You are made to feel welcome from the moment you walk in, the customer service is fantastic I ordered a Latte with Soya milk, while I was waiting a lovely lady came over “Are you eating in?” I was “You can go and find a seat if you like, we will bring your drink to you” I did just that, I found a stool in the corner, the same girl came over “There is plenty of space upstairs if you would like to sit up there” amazing, I went upstairs and found a seat, it was really roomy, not cramped the windows are huge and let is loads of natural light, I just sat there for a while taking it all in.

My drink wasn’t that far behind me, delivered in a lovely mug I took a sip, usually, I like a sugar in my coffee but this was lovely, it is really hard to explain but the coffee tasted delicious, much nicer than Starbuck’s offering anyway.
