On Vegan Parenting

Hi guys,

Just wanted to eagerly stop by to point you in the direction of an exciting new venture of mine with the Vegan Lifestyle Association.  I’m going to be blogging over on their VEGAN24 News site as part of their Vegan Baby Diaries about raising vegan kids.

I’m not an expert, and I defo won’t be claiming to be.  My aim is simply to share my experiences of healthfully and confidently raising Theo and Anwen as weegans (for the most part).  You can find my first post here.

This also marks a change in direction for my blog. Over the next 6 months or so I hope to make this blog into more of a resource for vegan families (obvs food will be a feature).  There will not be a regular posting schedule (I know, shock).  Instead I will just blog about helpful and interesting things about vegan family living, fave foods, recipes, etc, as and when.  So my posts and blogging will (hopefully) be more about quality than quantity.

Exciting!  Hope you will join me for the ride.

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions anymore, but I do like to try to use the new year as an opportunity to start a new healthy habit or work on an unhealthy habit.  I mean this in the very loosest of terms.  This year I have decided to focus a little more on self-care.  The last 3.5 years have been about pregnancies and babies and now that this part of our life is over (sob) I’m trying to move forward.

I’ve kept my self-care intention very simple – to wash my face every night.  I know, shame on me.  Honestly, it’s only recently that i’ve started taking my mascara off before bed time; and that’s only because it irritates my eyes.  Anyway, I’ve discovered this great product that fits my new intention perfectly.  Nature’s Gold Argan Face Serum by Love Shea.  I was chatting to my friend about it and she was saying that Argan Oil is a all the rage in the beauty world.  Who knew.

It’s consistency is a little oily (duh), so you only need a very small amount, which means it’ll last a good while.  IMG_1462

(Excuse my hands – they suffer terribly in the winter).

After using it my face feels like it’s had a mini facial.  And due to it being an oil rather than a cream, it’s perfect for me as an overnight moisturiser.  My new favourite beauty find.

Please note: This review has been organised by the Vegan Lifestyle Association. It has not been paid for and the products were sent free of charge. Nonetheless this is my genuine and unbiased review of the product.
