Winter is here…

and snow is likely to arrive soon too. It’s now that time to wear jumpers, jackets and boots.

I can help you stay on point, but with none of the cruelty involved.

Perhaps it’s your first winter buying ethical clothing and you’re not sure where to start looking? I’ve put together a round-up of the best websites to buy your vegan fashion items from, as well as top picks! I’ve included on-trend pieces, as well as timeless classics and essentials, to suit every taste.

Thought

Thought are an amazing website for women AND men. They sell ethical clothes made from a variety of materials, such as recycled polyester, hemp, organic cotton and bamboo. You can also filter by vegan clothing really easily, so shopping is simple! Go check them out.

My picks from Thought:

Men's Ivan Jacket in Navy, by ethical fashion company Thought. Made with organic cotton.

Heartcure

This is one amazing company. Completely run by vegans, with profits being used for activism and sanctuaries, Heartcure has a clear mission. The best bit is, their clothes are top notch too. Their latest collection is right on trend and includes items for men, women and children.

Planet Vandy

This one is for the ladies! If you’re looking to make an impression, wearing something nobody else has, this is the winter brand for you. Forget beige, because Alice Vandy is all about colour and standout prints. This lady won PETA’s Best New Designer in 2014 and has come a long way since then. With these clothes, you don’t even have to care about trends, or getting cold.

Leather is back in and as vegans, we don’t have to miss out. We can get our fashion fix 100% cruelty-free with these finds.

Free People aren’t an exclusively vegan brand, but they do have a great vegan section, and are an ethical company. I love these offerings:

If you’re already vegan and you want people to know it, these clothes are for you. Viva La Vegan use fashion as a form of activism, with bold statements and eye-catching art. They believe that clothing items aren’t just for fleeting trends, they can be used to spread compassion… all while looking your best! They also sell children’s wear. Their cosy winter pieces vary wildly, so go have a look for yourself. In the meantime, have a look at my favourites:

People Tree

These guys were founded in 1991 and know what they’re doing. No fast fashion here, just fair trade. They personally know their suppliers, growers and producers, opposing sweatshops and child labour. Buying from People Tree, you know that your clothing has a positive story behind it. *Be aware that a few items contain wool and are not vegan, so do check individual clothing items.

Before I leave you, I’d also like to mention Bare Fashion. They held London’s first vegan fashion show, and it was wildly successful. There are plans to hold shows in the future, so do check them out if you’re a hardcore fashionista.

  • This week I’ve been taking part in a #whatieatinadayvegan Veganuary special. Today is my day to share my meals! 
I always start the day with warm lemon water. It’s refreshing and gets the digestion going!
Next is a green juice. My go-to for this is cucumber, celery, apple, orange, ginger and spinach/kale. A hit of nutrients!
Mid morning is smoothie time, and today was mango banana. I always add flax or hemp seeds for omega 3. 
For lunch I usually have a loaded salad. But today was Saturday and Ben was hungry! So we had a lovely brunch 😍
Off to my mum’s for dinner. She’s not vegan but always makes great vegan food! We had spaghetti bolognese, garlic bread and apple cake for pudding. My mum actually prefers making vegan cakes as she thinks they taste better 👍
Eating vegan is so easy! If you have any questions or need meal ideas just hit me up anytime. 
And do go ahead and check out the other lovelies taking part in this week’s posts - @rs_recipes @thecookandhim @veginspired @veganbabelife @eatswithel_ @viva.vegana
  • Are your children going vegan with you?⁠
⁠
Last year, I was so excited to publish this guest post from fellow vegan and businesswoman, Naomi Sheridan! Naomi is the mother of two beautiful and healthy vegan children, so I was really interested to hear her advice on raising vegan children.⁠
⁠
Whether your children are fully vegan, or just incorporating healthier foods into their diet, I hope you find it useful.⁠

  • This is important for me.⁠
⁠
When I was vegetarian, I saw no issue at all with eating dairy and eggs. In my mind, it wasn't meat, and animals produced them anyway. It was that simple for me. ⁠
⁠
Of course, with the rise of social media I was exposed to more animal rights petitions, and undercover footage of factory farms. But STILL, I thought they were isolated incidents, unrelated to the food I was personally eating.⁠
⁠
It wasn't until I finally did my own research (the objective scientist in me wanted to find the evidence and arguments for and against veganism) that it all finally clicked for me. I knew that as an animal lover, I would feel like a hypocrite cuddling my cats and condoning meat, while sitting down to cheese and omelettes.⁠
⁠
I phased out dairy and eggs. I looked into the processes behind leather and wool. It wasn't an overnight transition yet before I knew it, I was a fully-fledged vegan.⁠
⁠
This quote means a lot to me. Animals are here with us, not for us. Their bodies and 'products' are their own. ⁠
⁠
How about you? What's your story?⁠

  • The BOSH book is on sale!⁠
🥳🥳⁠
Ben bought me 'BOSH! How to Live Vegan' after I had Ava, to read while feeding. I'm really enjoying it!⁠
⁠
It's a great read for new or existing vegans, with life hacks, advice and difficult questions answered. Things like dealing with friends and family, wearing old leather clothes, are all discussed.⁠
⁠
It's on sale for £7 right now ⁠
(I'll pop the link in my bio).⁠
⁠
PS. Have you seen the new cooking show from the BOSH boys? It's on ITV, called Living On The Veg. Go get it on catch-up. ⁠

  • Planning in advance when going vegan helps so much!⁠
⁠
Even now, as a vegan of 6 years, I create meal plans. I also see if there's any prep work I can do while baby is asleep. It keeps me on track.⁠
⁠
If you’re THAT person – the one who makes dinner plans when they arrive home from work, you could try advance planning. It is much easier to follow a varied vegan diet if you know what you’ll be eating, have the ingredients in, or even partially prepped. You won’t be tempted by a snack on the way home, because something delicious will be waiting! ⁠
⁠
It doesn’t have to be a week’s worth of complex meals, just a few days ahead. Choose easy options when you know you’re home late, and use weekends for experimentation. Being organised can be handy AND fun!⁠
⁠
Slow cookers also save us from ‘hanger’. Make use of one! Pop a casserole or curry in before you leave the house, so dinner is ready when you’re home. ⁠
Make extra portions of meals to freeze, so you have your own ready meals on lazy days. ⁠
Do online shops too – you can filter for vegan foods at most supermarkets now and have them delivered to your door. ⁠
And if you’re a takeaway fiend, know what the vegan options are beforehand. This works well at restaurants too – know your choices before you go! ⁠
⁠
Preparation is your friend.⁠
