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.

NB: I received a personalised mug for free, in exchange for an honest review. I hope you like it! I receive no proceeds from the sale of any of these products, I just love her vegan brand!

  • We're 15 days into isolation as a family. Just house and garden, no outside world.⁠
⁠
I can't lie - it's been a tough few weeks and the stress has really peaked the last few days! Trying to get in exercise and outdoor time so we don't feel crazy, homeschooling/occupying a 4 year old, breastfeeding a 4 month old on demand (who barely sleeps in the day), finding ways to obtain food and Ben trying to work from home - it's a real juggle.⁠
⁠
But we must be thankful that we get to self-isolate when other amazing folks are working for the NHS, in care facilities, as refuse workers, etc... helping those in need and allowing society to retain some of its basic functions. ⁠
⁠
How are you all doing? Are you getting the support and food you need?⁠
We've had some great vegan deliveries, as well as fresh produce. We haven't attempted to supermarket shop, and found some great local businesses such as veg shops and bakeries. It's actually been nice to support small businesses more.⁠
We're also making more effort to use food in the back of the cupboard, come up with different meals, and make our own snacks. Over the last few weeks I've made cake, scones, protein balls and others, using different flours and dried goods hidden away. ⁠
⁠
So don't forget to get resourceful and break routine! Find local businesses that deliver via Facebook or Google, make some different meals and try wacky combinations. ⁠
⁠
Let me know how it's going for you!⁠

  • Are you prepared for a vegan Easter? It’s almost time – hooray!⁠
⁠
A vegan Easter is the same as a regular Easter, just without the cruelty! We have lots of indulgent chocolate, hot cross buns and eggs.⁠
⁠
But Easter isn’t just about the edibles. There are plenty of things to do and see that are cruelty-free too.⁠
⁠
I’ve put together a simple guide for a vegan Easter, including: activities that may not be as animal-friendly as you think, alternative things to do, and family meal ideas. Enjoy!⁠
⁠
LINK IN BIO.⁠
⁠
NB: a few activities may not be feasible due to Covid-19 but there are many things you can do at home - please do be sensible with social distancing.⁠

  • Whole foods are both kind to animals and good for us.⁠
The great thing is, many online vegan stores are doing a fantastic job of keeping things in stock and providing us with delicious food, with minimal virus risk. ⁠
Let me know if you need any recommendations!⁠

  • I love experimenting with plant milks. As well as the common soya and almond milks, you can also seek out cashew, pea and hemp milk! The possibilities are endless.⁠
⁠
So what do we buy?⁠
⁠
👍Oatly Barista - this is the only thing my husband will have in coffee. He loves it.⁠
👍Soya milk - this is often fortified and a little sweet, so kids love it. My 4-year-old daughter has it on cereal every day.⁠
👍Coconut milk - great in porridge, overnight oats or a tropical smoothie.⁠
👍Almond milk - my personal preference for tea as it's quite mild.⁠
⁠
You can see more of my favourite dairy and egg swaps in my FREE 'Easy Being Vegan' pack! Including baking substitutes, cheeses, and chocolate. YUM.⁠
⁠
You also get a shopping list, easy meal plan, and personal action points to keep you on track as a new vegan.⁠
