Personal vegan merch, anyone?
I’ve been following Veronika and her beautiful creations for a while now. When she got in touch to design me a mug, I was overjoyed! I love getting goodies from small, vegan-owned businesses, and Veronika is so lovely too.

Who is Veronika Honestly?

If you’ve never come across Veronika Honestly before, you HAVE TO check her out. She’s vegan and runs a small business, designing a variety of goodies. Veronika started the business to raise vegan awareness, unleash her creative side (her other role is maths tuition) and giving something back to animal charities – half of the profits go to good causes. The main focuses of the business are to be vegan-friendly, eco-friendly (organic cotton, plastic-free packaging), and doing charitable good.

Personalised Vegan Products

The main focus is vegan awareness t-shirts – and believe me, once this pregnant belly has gone, I’m ordering one. I think I’m rather taken with this unicorn tee – I’ve just got to decide which of the many colours to have it in. Decisions, decisions!

The shirts are all made from 100% certified organic cotton and printed with vegan ink – they’re super soft! Along with the vegan slogans and cute animal sketches, there are also eco-awareness designs such as ‘if you litter the ocean, seahorses will find you and kick your ass’. You can even grab a tote bag if t-shirts aren’t your thing.

The fantastic thing about Veronika Honestly is that she can custom-make many things. For example, if you like a tee design but would prefer it on a bag, or one of her other products, she can do that for you. Colours can also be adjusted. You can get yourself a completely original item!

Have I convinced you to check her out yet? If you do decide to order, I’ve bagged a 10% off code for readers – just enter LEARNERVEGAN at the checkout.

What Vegan Product Did I Choose?

As a mum to three cats, I decided to go for a customised mug. As a self-confessed crazy cat lady, I was very excited about this – especially as it is personalised to match your cats’ markings!

Veronika was an absolute pleasure to work with around the design. She had many fantastic ideas, an unlimited amount of options, and always replied to my emails promptly. The finished design was completed quickly, and the finished mug was with me within 2 days of us finishing the order together. All I had to do was provide photos of the cats and choose what I wanted.

Here is the finished result!

What do you think? I was so pleased! Marley and Mia are pretty easy to design as they are completely black, but it was great that Veronika captured how Marley was skinnier and rougher around the edges. A lovely touch for the owner! Marmalade was the trickest due to her colourful markings, and I couldn’t believe how accurate the design looked! I was really excited to have my first cup of tea in this cup, and it’s already received a few comments from visitors too.

The cup is sturdy, glossy and not prone to stains, so I’m really pleased with the quality. I’d definitely be happy to purchase another for myself or as a gift.

Where Can I Check Out Veronika Honestly?

Apart from her Etsy shop, Veronika does have a main website where you can shop, check out her blog and even grab free printable greeting cards.

She also runs an additional business, Magicful Home, where you can purchase custom home decor. Some of the profits go towards marine conservation efforts, and the site is home to lovely free printables too.

  • Thank you for everyone that joined me LIVE!
I was answering your questions and tackling common issues from new vegans, and those doing Veganuary.
One question was around being judged - seems as though everybody has an opinion about veganism! So how do you handle being judged by friends and family?
Give this clip from the LIVE a watch to find out.
  • Before supermarket shopping...⁠
⁠
⭐️ Do A Little Light Reading! ⭐️⁠
⁠
Food shopping as a vegan can be really easy and no fuss, but to get to that happy place you need to remember something: knowledge equals power. ⁠
⁠
Being familiar with key non-vegan ingredients that pop up frequently, can speed up your shop immensely. Lactose can sneak into creamy products, egg white pops up in some Quorn foods, for example. ⁠
⁠
You also need to be familiar with what you CAN eat. Many supermarket chains have a special range of vegan food now so you can completely skip the label-checking for those – think Tesco with Wicked Kitchen. Check their websites, do some research and you’ll be ready to quickly spot that packaging in the aisles and snap up those goodies. ⁠
⁠
If there’s a certain food you can’t live without, make sure you know which aisle it’s in and what it looks like before you visit – nobody likes returning to the same aisle 3 times. I love buying tahini to make sauces, but it took me a long time to find it hidden obscurely between the pickles.⁠
⁠
Don’t expect to get everything right on your first shop either. If you go home with something you later realise isn’t vegan, don’t beat yourself up about it. Take it back, give it to a friend or donate it to a food bank. You’ll remember for next time!⁠

  • I have to admit, I'm not much of a baker. I'd much rather make savoury meals.⁠
Luckily, I have an amazing mum who is! She makes and sends me recipes for cakes and bakes, that are easy enough even for me to have a go at.⁠
⁠
A basic vanilla sponge cake pleases everyone. It's the perfect starting point for a birthday cake, or with added icing, whipped cream or sprinkles.⁠
⁠
Ingredients:⁠
210 g plain flour⁠
250 ml soy milk⁠
200 g sugar (white or coconut)⁠
80 ml oil (olive or vegetable)⁠
0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda⁠
0.5 tsp table salt⁠
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar⁠
3 tsp vanilla extract⁠
⁠
Instructions:⁠
⭐️Warm the oven to 180oC.⁠
⭐️Add the flour, sugar, salt and bicarbonate of soda to a bowl (don't forget to sift your flour!) and mix.⁠
⭐️Add the remaining ingredients, and whisk thoroughly.⁠
⭐️Add the mixture to a greased cake tin (7in diameter works well).⁠
⭐️Bake for 25-30 mins.⁠
⭐️Eat alone or add vegan single cream, vanilla frosting or buttercream if preferred.⁠

  • 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
