Severn Days with Mr Dandy’s Hair Candy

I have spent seven whole days with Mr Dandy’s Hair Candy, during this time I have learnt a lot about it, how well we get on together and if we will be suited to one another long term, I was looking for a good hair product that was vegan-friendly but not a pomade and not really a wax or a paste, these products are great for certain hair styles but not for me, I needed something a bit more flexible, hopefully this review will help you.

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.

Harissa Aubergine Kebabs

Editorial Note: This was a follow along, taken from Issue 5 of Vegan Living Magazine which was an extract from 15 Minute Vegan

We have been reading the above-mentioned magazine for a while now and there are some really yummy recipes in there, tonight I decided to give one of them a go, Harissa Aubergine Kebabs with a mint relish, they turned out really well and tasted just lovely, I might make a small change next time and have them inside a pitta bread, I think they would be easier to eat that way but still they were pretty amazing.

I took a few photos along the way to show what was to come.

Quorn Fillets

If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fillets…what were they like?

To be honest, these were by far the worst of the bunch that we purchased, I am not sure what I expected but they were really disappointing, they felt really processed and the outside of the fillet looked unappealing, as for the taste well there was no taste, they had to be complimented with something else to give them any flavour, I don’t know if that was the intention that Quorn had when they made them but for me I would have preferred to just have a fillet I could eat with some rice and that be enough. So unfortunately I won’t be buying these again and can’t really recommend them to you all.

Quorn Fishless Fingers

If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fishless Finger…what were they like?

fishless-fingers

These had the biggest hype for me, so many people have been talking about them, saying just how good they were so I was really excited to try them out, just like the nuggets the texture on the outside was identical to a Fish Finger but what about the inside? Some of the Quorn products can be really dense and not very appealing at all but these Fishless fingers were perfect, they tasted amazing the contents of the Finger tasted really good, definitely on my list of products to get again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a Vegan alternative.

Arbonne Moisturizer

I got out of the shower, dried my face pulled the toothbrush from its holder and started to brush my teeth, as I gazed into the mirror I noticed that the top of my head was flaky, I hadn’t noticed it before and had no idea what might be causing it or how to even remedy it, after a little bit of searching both on the usual google searches and a few groups I am a member of on Facebook it seemed to point to the lack of moisturisation, I didn’t even think that I needed to use a moisturiser.
