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.

  • ⭐️ Keeping Organised as a New Vegan ⭐️⁠
⁠
As a meat-eater, it was probably easy to get by without thinking about meals in advance. You could grab a snack from wherever, or grab takeout on the way home. But thinking in advance helps us all out. It means we eat more healthy, save money on random snacks and meals, and can do some time-saving meal prep in advance!⁠
⁠
⭐️ Consider where you will be for the next few days at mealtimes, and plan accordingly. Factor drinks and snacks in too – I always have an extra something stashed in my bag, just in case I’m out later than usual! ⁠
⁠
⭐️ If you’re somewhere new, looking up restaurants online beforehand can help. Check out Tripadvisor – just enter ‘vegan-friendly (TOWN)’ in their search bar, and you should easily find where the plant-based people are going. Then you can narrow the options right down to your path of driving or walking. HappyCow Vegan Guide is also a great website that pinpoints vegan options near to you. It’s available as an app and will show you vegan stores and cafes too.⁠
⁠
⭐️ If you’re just looking to grab and go, see where popular chains are such as Pret A Manger and M&S Food. Most towns, airports and service stations have at least one vegan-friendly chain. In fact, in 2018, the UK launched more vegan products than any other nation. So you can get familiar favourites wherever you are! ⁠
⁠
⭐️ You can also personally ask for recommendations on Facebook groups. Local vegans are always happy to point you in the right direction, so that you don’t go hungry. If you’re too impatient to wait for responses, try the search function to see if anybody has asked a similar question in the group recently.⁠
⁠
What do you do to stay organised when you're out and about?⁠

  • Want to show people how delicious vegan food is?⁠
👍👍⁠
I remember going vegan and thinking I'd never be able to have cake or baked goods, because they had to have eggs in.⁠
Wrong again! Since then, I've discovered vegan meringues, brownies and all kinds of other goodies.⁠
🍰🍰⁠
I like to make these cookies! They're actually one of the first vegan desserts I made, which of course means they're very easy to do.⁠
😉😉⁠
They are perfect for school bakes, having guests over, or special occasions. ⁠
🍪🍪⁠
TOP TIP: Leave them in for a few extra minutes if you prefer them crunchy on the outside.⁠
⁠
Ingredients:⁠
120 g vegan butter⁠
100 g white sugar⁠
100 g brown sugar⁠
120 g plain flour⁠
1 tsp vanilla extract⁠
50 g cocoa powder⁠
1 tsp baking soda⁠
1 tbsp non-dairy milk⁠
1 Pinch salt⁠
100 g vegan chocolate chunks or chips⁠
⁠
Instructions:⁠
1. Preheat oven to 180C.⁠
2. Add the butter, both sugars and vanilla to a bowl and mix thoroughly.⁠
3. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl, then add baking soda and salt. Mix together.⁠
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix thoroughly.⁠
5. Add the chocolate and milk. Mix the dough – it should be sticky and thick.⁠
6. Roll the dough into small individual balls and put on a greased baking tray.⁠
7. Bake for 10 minutes until still soft in the middle. Take out of the oven and leave to firm up for 10 minutes.⁠

  • We have some new content up, and it's a little different!⁠
⚠️⚠️⁠
Lauren, of @TheClutterFreeMama , has given us all a great introduction to sustainable living. ⁠
😁😁⁠
I don't know about you, but even as a vegan, I'm still learning about reducing waste, using more sustainable products, and being all-round more environmentally friendly.⁠
🌿🌿⁠
It can be a minefield, but Lauren's fantastic post gives us all a great introduction to the lifestyle, and the little things we can start doing today.⁠
💚💚⁠
Enjoy! Link is straight through my BIO.⁠
What do you do to minimise your impact? I'd love to know!⁠

⁠
  • My negative and limiting mindset was one of the things that stopped me going fully vegan sooner. ⁠
⚠️⚠️⁠
And for those worrying about changing habits, I completely understand. It is a daunting prospect – we all have busy lives and routines that we like following. But it is do-able and completely worth it! Take it from somebody who is out on the other side of change – ⁠
⬇️⬇️⁠
You create a new normal. ⁠
⬆️⬆️⁠
Once I fully realised the horrors of the dairy and egg industry, and associated health risks, I knew I had to do it. Now I have good habits and healthy routines, that don’t involve cruelty. I’ve found new dishes at the takeaway that I actually enjoy more. I’ve learned to make my own ‘egg’ foo yung at home, which is very satisfying, and healthier! I’ve discovered Vego chocolate bars (heaven) and gorgeous vegan lunches. Life is great!⁠
😁😁⁠
As with getting rid of any habit, mindset is a huge player. Humans are emotional creatures! We make many decisions (especially in the moment) based on emotion rather than logic. If you’re not emotionally committed and prepared, the likelihood is that your new habit won’t last. We often adopt certain beliefs to justify keeping old habits. In the context of veganism, this could be “but I won’t get the nutrients I need” or “I can’t afford it”. ⁠
💰💰⁠
What’s yours? It’s important to challenge these limiting beliefs. Are they REALLY true?⁠
Let’s replace those beliefs with new ones – “I’ll be saving lives” or “I’ll be helping the environment for my grandchildren”. Being vegan really is a positive lifestyle choice.⁠

  • Going vegan didn't come easy to me. I wasn't an overnighter - I didn't just click and make the connection. ⁠
⚠️⚠️⁠
It took trial and error, different research studies, insights into the animal industries and a lot of negative mindset.⁠
⁠
I transitioned over around 6 months, even though I was already vegetarian. I was googling things several times per day, reading conflicting information, making unnecessary mistakes. ⁠
⁠
Even a few months into going vegan, I remember buying a bag of crisps without checking the label. When I got home I saw that they had milk in them. I really beat myself up, thinking about the dairy industry and how I'd just paid for this item. ⁠
⁠
It took me a while to get out of that mindset, be easy on myself, and realise that I was only human. In reality, I was doing a lot more for the cause than most!⁠
⁠
This might surprise some people who didn't know me 6 years ago. Now, I feel like I know a lot of things about veganism - although we're still all learning, aren't we? I'm comfortable talking about it and helping others.⁠
⁠
That's why I created Learner Vegan. To provide free resources, and make going vegan, simple, convenient and stress-free. ⁠
⁠
There's also the bespoke side for those who need a little extra help. I wish I'd had someone personally there for me when transitioning, to cut out all the google searches and going around in circles. ⁠
That's why I decided to launch coaching. To provide 121 support on YOUR specific life, situations and issues.⁠
I've been through a healthy plant-based diet, eating gluten-free, vegan pregnancies, living with a meat-eater and a lot more. ⁠
Troubleshooting with someone is much more effective than spending hours on the internet, plus it's a lot of fun!⁠
⁠
Who needs this?⁠
