Holiday Haul and Chat!

Hi Guys! So today I thought I would do a bit of a chatty post as I haven't done one of those in a while... So I'm going on holiday in August to Cyprus with Beth, a very close friend of mine who coincidentally also has a blog! So the other day we decided to go shopping for holiday clothes and make a day of it. We went to Manchester and did all the major shops and then went tho the famous turtle bay, which, honestly, looked much prettier than it tasted (boo). But then we made up for it with an IMAX cinema trip to see Legend of Tarzan. And I mean that was pretty cool but I wouldn't go as far to say it was Legendary... (boo again) haha :) 

So on this trip I bought a heck of a lot of holiday stuff consisting of a Zara, stripy, midi, bodycon, which I love because it was so damn cheap and looks so damn nice. A lazy oaf Badge shirt (which I actually bought online and collected because there is no lazy oaf in Manchester :( Which is suuuper cool.  Some Liquor and Poker Rainbow shorts which are eternally amazing because there freaking sparkly sequined rainbows on my butt! Like what else could you want? And an urban outfitters slip dress. And I'm actually in love with that one :)

 I got a lot more for this holiday but I though I would show you over a series of posts and then when in Cyprus rope Beth in to take outfit posts so I can fiiiiinallllyyyyy do some fashion posts! You will be seeing a lot of me this summer :)

Thanks for reading guys! And let me know where your going this summer! 

Spicy Vegan Tomato Pasta!

So as some of you may know, I'm now vegan! Well, majority vegan anyways, maybe plant based, and in the three months that I've been doing this shiz I've become pretty clued up on the best vegan (or mostly vegan) recipes. And this is for sure my most used go to comfort food at the moment, sooooo I'm going to give it to you all as a gift. How nice right?! Hahaha :)


Three Onions
Three Garlic Cloves
A Handful of small Mushrooms
A Pinch of Salt
A Twist of Pepper
A few Herbs
A tin of Chopped Tomatoes
A squirt of Ketchup
A Sprinkle of Brown Sugar
A Squeeze of Tomato Puree
Some Chilli Flakes
Lets do this;

So first of all, chop the onions. I like to chop them into tiny pieces so they cook quicker and more evenly. Then get some olive oil hotting up and throw the onions in. And give them a fry until they look kind of sweaty. While those are frying, chop the garlic and mushrooms very finely and throw those into the mix. As these are all frying I usually prep all of the other ingredients, until the fried onions and garlic are all nice and cooked through. Then throw all of the wet ingredients in and add the dry ingredients to taste. I like mine sweet so I tend to add a lot of brown sugar. I then leave it to simmer for 15 mins while the pasta is cooking and then blend it a little. And Voila! Your done! Its super easy and quick and it works brilliantly frozen for an even quicker meal! I find that its lovey with some salt, pepper and seeds to season. Enjoy!
