Giveaway/Review Estelle & Thild Healthy Glow Foundation

To enter the giveaway simply subscribe on my blog and comment below and this little beauty can be yours! I’ll ship it anywhere in the world.

Last day is Friday the 19th January 2018.

When I was is Stockholm over Christmas I bought the above Estelle and Thild Biomineral Healthy Glow Foundation in a medium yellow tone No123. And I love it! Nice colour. Fab effect on my pores. Easy to use. Sold.
Now you can get your hands on it.
Estelle and Thild is a Swedish clean beauty brand that launched a make up line recently. I always stock up on their lotions and potions when I’m in Stockholm, and I was very keen to try the make up. I have seen their beauty products in Selfridges but I think you can only get the make-up  on-line. Net a Porter sell this foundation for £32.



Healthy Eats – Stockholm: GAST

Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Christmas and that you are ready to take on 2018. I absolutely love Christmas and eat everything traditional and Christmassy. But now I’m done. I am craving vegetables!
We headed to new cafe/lunch spot Gast (old swedish for ghost) for a late breakfast. It’s beautifully designed airy, light and spacious with a great play list. The menu is in English and the staff seems to all be from an English speaking country, making this the perfect place to discover the real Stockholm and at the same time not feel like an outsider. Gast is situated slap bang in the middle of Stockholm but it’s a slightly hidden gem and even I had to give the address a google. I had a wonderful vegan soup with fennel and zucchini. So delicious and fresh. There is always a beautiful vegan salad on the menu and the soup of the day is often vegan. They serve great coffees and loads of traditional pastries like the gluten free and nut free chocolate roulade. (my teenager’s favorite). Now I’m getting ready to pack up and head to the airport in a few hours. Goodbye Stockholm and 2017.




How To Make Kombucha Vinegar

Hi everyone,
Happy Christmas! I’m in Stockholm to celebrate Christmas with my family. First we stayed in a hotel for a few days and now we are at my parents closer to the archipelago. Christmas is maybe not the time to start a new healthy eating regime but using kombucha vinegar and having as much vegetables as possible, and snacking on fruits and nuts will bring much needed nutrients.
If you are new to the whole kombucha brewing, here’s my: How to make kombucha for beginners VIDEO.

Whishing you all a wonderful Christmas!!!









Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce

I’m not going to lie. This is not a super healthy treat. But it’s so much better for you then the bog standard shop-bought salted caramel sauce.We love it on pancakes as a special treat. Is gorgeous on cake, ice cream or just straight from the jar. Coconut sugar is still sugar so if you are on a strict no sugar diet this is not for you. But if you want something sweet, coconut sugar is a better choice than ordinary white sugar. It contains minerals like iron zinc potassium and some calcium which may offer some health benefit.
Hope you like it!

Vegan Salted Caramel Sauce
– 1 Tin of full fat coconut milk 400ml
– coconut sugar 1/2 Cup
–  1/2  teaspoon vanilla powder
–  1/4 teaspoon sea salt




Video: Activate and Dehydrate ALMONDS

Hi everyone! I love this time of the year in London, it’s just so social and fun with all sorts of fabulous partys: cooperate Christmas parties, boozy Christmas lunches, Christmas hat and jumper gatherings down the pub, school-parent Christmas drink parties, the list goes on.
I have also taken on a lot more work then I would normally do  and I’m trying to finish my book on fermentation. So I’m slightly overstretched but Its all good. Nuts is a great snack when you are rushing from one thing to the other. Full of vitamin E, Calcium, chill-out Magnesium and Potassium.
To really get the most out of these little darlings I first activate them by immersing them in filtered water for 6 to 12 hours and then I dehydrate them so that the nutrients are more easily absorbed.
I don’t have a dehydrator so I put my oven on 50C and open the oven door slightly and let the almonds dry out for 12 to 24 hours. Boom. Much cheaper activated almonds from the health store.





Video: Off to the Gym!

Hi everyone!
I’m so happy I’ve been able to start exercising again. It’s been 3 years of having a bad knee, where running to the bus resulted in not being able to walk the following day. Physio absolutely helped but I suspect the clincher was the supplement I started to take. So far so good!

Healthy Eats – London: The Good Life Eatery

Marylebone is quickly becoming the to go to area for great healthy places to eat. A few days ago I popped into The Good Life Eatery for a quick lunch bite.
I had a warm gluten free Gangsta Wrap with baked quinoa and sweet potato falafels, served with a side salad.  Asked them to hold the feta cheese –  no problem at all.  I prefer to eat a mainly vegan diet but I eat anything if I’m offered. My family comes with a whole host of food restrictions due to celiacs disease, nut allergy and oral allergy, it would just be to much to cater to a vegan as well 🙂
With both celiacs disease and nut allergy to take into consideration cakes can be an absolute nightmare to order. I was VERY impressed with the selection of cakes that was both gluten AND nut free, The Good Life Eatery got both these issues covered in the same cakes! Hurray!
I bought 2 slices to take home for the kids to try, one red velvet and one coconut, both were so delicious!
The Good Life Eatery is on Marylebone Lane 69.

Healthy Eats – London: 222 Veggie Vegan

I went to 222 Veggie Vegan for lunch today.
It’s a 25 minute walk from my house and it was so glorious and sunny I really enjoyed my walk, soaking up the rays.
For lunch 222 offers an eat-as-much-as-you-want buffet for £9.90 and a take away box for £7.50. (They are also open for dinner with a completely different a la carte menu).
This is vegan comfort food!
Mains like Quinoa Tofu Bake, Carrot Tart, and Mixed Bean Curry draw a completely different crowd from what I’m used to in healthy lunch places – MEN!
Male body builders, swimming teachers, personal trainers and local chaps, mixed in with female office workers. NOBODY left hungry!

Everything I cold see was gluten-free and other allergens like soya, sesame nuts etc. were clearly labelled.
I tried almost everything, it would be rude not to, right?
So yes, I had both plates in the photo above.

Oh, yes and as a bonus, there’s a new Vegan food shop next door.
I bought whipping cream, chocolate, meringues and vegan honey…
Not that I was especially hungry, but looking forward to try it all the same.
Had not even heard about vegan honey?!

(222 Veggie Vegan is at 222 North End Road, West Kensington, London W14 9NU)

Happy weekend!
