Looking for inspiration: lovely vegan event in Shoreditch. Still a flexitarian though…

I am slowly trying to convert to veganism and have made a lot of changes already.

There is however no doubt that I am still a flexitarian (love this word! 😎). We all know however that the smallest changes can make the biggest difference!

I am therefore always on a quest for inspiration and visited a lovely vegan fair in London.

There was so much diversity in terms of the products on offer: clothes, drinks, sports and overall supplements, art, campaigns, cosmetics and of course food.

I have to say that so far I have not found a meat substitute which is pleasant to my pallet! I will not give up though… ☺️

So many stalls!

Having spent a lot of time in Japan, I am a huge fan of matcha and I am so happy that it has become a trend 🍃

 

Being recognised for your hard work and achievements

In my career, I have come across almighty terrible leaders and thankfully some of the best.

Whislt my current full time job is working as a Business Improvement Lead in the rail industry, I was recently invited to present my work at an event to senior leaders and executives. I cannot begin to describe how proud and elated I was on the day!

Recognition like this makes my engine rev up and truly inspires me to achieve more.

If you manage a team, it is vital to spend a little time celebrating successes! This will lead to better wellbeing, productivity and performance.

I was joined on the day by my lovely partner in crime to help me on this wonderful little journey. 😊

 

All natural really effective snuffles remedy

All too often, we immediately reach out to medicated products when we have a cold accompanied by an irritating cough.

I personally always try to tackle the bug with natural remedies initially. I have found this product to be so incredibly effective. Snufflebabe vapour rub is completely natural and very VERY cheap: £2.50! It is also fairly readily available in a large range of stores, Boots stock the range of products.

It contains eucalyptus oil, menthol and thyme oil. You can use it on babies as young as 3 months. Simply rub a little on the chest but very importantly on the sole of the feet and put some socks on at bed time. We often need some black and white scientific proof but just like reflexology, there is no scientific basis yet; like so much we still don’t know… All we do know is that it works.

I do this with both my children and it stops them from coughing in the night = better sleep = more speedy recovery = better immune system = throat less irritated during the day = natural healing.

Tiny on the wallet and BIG on health!

 

Celebrating diversity…

… in Camden, London! Whilst the children do not get a good flavour of how much diversity there is in and around us as we live in a small village, I took a more unconventional route to sightseeing!
There were mesmerised by the eccentricity on offer 😀
