Review | The Vegan Kind Beauty Subscription Box

The Vegan Kind beauty subscription box

Let's face it, there's definitely no shortage of beauty subscription boxes out there. But when I heard that TheVeganKind offer an entirely cruelty-free and vegan one, I was all ears! After all, there's no point in me investing in any other beauty boxes as the contents aren't always likely to be completely vegan or cruelty-free but TVK has filled the gap in the market for beauty junkies who don't want to contribute or fund any animal cruelty. Every two months they send subscribers box filled with a few surprise sample-sized and full-sized skincare and beauty treats from beauty companies with a conscious and focus on fighting the use of animal byproducts in the beauty industry. As well as their beauty box, The Vegan Kind also offer a 'Lifestyle' box filled with snacks and other vegan goodies.

Review | Tasting the Vegan Menu at Brick Lane's City Spice

11 August, 2018

It's well-known amongst Londoners that Brick Lane is the best place to go for a curry in the city as the lower end of the street is inhabited by a collection of traditional curry houses. It's pretty much impossible to walk from one end of the street to the other without someone standing outside the front of house inviting you to eat at their restaurant.  However, it's fair to say that the options for vegans across Brick Lane's Bangladeshi restaurants have always been pretty limited despite London being a mecca for vegan food. Finally, plant-based eaters can now enjoy the culinary delights Brick Lane is famous for thanks to arguably the best restaurant on the block, City Spice, who have developed Brick Lane's first entirely vegan menu after experiencing a rise in the demand for plant-based options.

Seven Reasons Why Electric Castle Should Be On Your European Festival Bucket List

06 August, 2018

At the end of July, I jumped on a plane and added a new festival, Electric Castle, to my European festival roster.  Electric Castle is one of Romania's biggest and most well-known festivals, welcoming 130,000 festival-goers every year to its fairytale-esque site at Bánffy Castle. Despite being incredibly popular in its home country, it's relatively unknown in the UK. After attending this year's edition and not knowing what to expect, I unexpectedly fell utterly in love with it and decided that it should be on everyone's European festival bucket list for a number of reasons...

Review | Purezza, Camden: An Entirely Vegan Pizzeria

23 June, 2018
Pizzas from Purezza in Camden that are entirely vegan & absolutely delicious!

As you may know from my Vegan Food Guide To Camden, Camden is pretty darn incredible for vegan food options. One of the latest companies to join the neighbourhood is entirely plant-based pizzeria, Purezza and I recently went along to check out their menu (and consume all of the pizza, obviously!).

Initially, Purezza was founded in Brighton back in 2015, becoming the first entirely vegan pizzeria in the UK. Despite their story starting just just three years ago, the vegan movement has boomed across the UK, which has allowed them to make a new home for their second restaurant in the UK's capital city. Located just a short walk from Camden Town station, Purezza has made itself at home amongst the flurry of other vegan eateries in the area.

Little London Guide | King's Cross

19 June, 2018

Welcome to Little London Guide | King's Cross

Little London Guide is a blog series on Fox & Feather where I explore and show you little snippets of London in more manageable chunks. The UK's capital is overwhelmingly huge spanning over an area of 1,572 km² and is home to over 8 million people so I've taken it upon myself, as a Londoner, to compose smaller guides that focus on different areas within the city. Just think of it as your bitesize guide to the city!
