Does the Nuud deo really work?

That's the first thing I asked myself when I saw an ad pop up in my facebook feed.

A Merry vegan Christmas: The Chestnut Yule log

You just had the main course, now it's time for something sweet! In France, the traditional Christmas dessert is the Yule log. It doesn't matter if it's cake, mousse, ice cream or actual wood, as long as it's a log that is being served. The most traditional flavour is definitely chestnut and it also happen to be my favourite. So it's only natural for me to learn how to make a vegan version of it, don't you think?

Just staples

When I first started this blog, it didn't really have a purpose, other than sharing some outfits. But over the years, I became more aware of the impact of fashion on the environment and figured that I could use the blog as a platform to show how to be more sustainable without compromising on style.

You can't buy happiness

Very recently, I ordered two t-shirts from a French brand called Not Venomous. I will tell you about the brand itself in my next post because it's totally awesome but today I will be talking about something completely different: how our wardrobes are full of clothes yet we have nothing to wear.

We've all been there haven't we?

Outfit repeat

One of my last articles was about what I learned from capsule closeting and how I wear the same clothes all the time. Today's outfit is a good example to talk about that.

Borlotti bean and quinoa minestrone (vegan of course)

Long time no food post! I was so sure I had posted this delicious and hearty minestrone recipe already but apparently not. Better late than never, right?

So, you wanna go vegan but you don't like veggies?

Sounds like quite an issue considering you can't live on just pasta and bread, doesn't it?

Can you be fashionable and sustainable?

Admit it. Whenever you hear sustainable fashion, you think hemp clothes and hiking shoes. I did too. So when I first decided to embrace a greener lifestyle, I believed that it was going to be tough on my wardrobe and I really wondered: Is it even possible to follow trends and be sustainable?

Five good reasons to go vegan that are not the ones you think

Very often (all the time actually), I don't understand why people continue to eat meat knowing it's cruel, unhealthy and terrible for the environment when there are so many plant based options available. Obviously, there's the people who don't give a damn but I dare to hope they're not the majority. And next to them, there's those who think that being vegan is a huge sacrifice. I used to be like that and only did it for the animals but it didn't take long until I change my mind and I'll tell you why.

The skirt from last year

It's so easy to get that new clothes feel without actually buying something new.

Same shorts, different day

I think you'll recognize the shorts. They're the same as in my last outfit post.

Vegan cherry clafoutis

It's cherry season! Too bad I don't like them so much. But since I know they're packed with vitamin C and antioxydants, I force myself to eat them, especially since I get them fresh and organic from my parent's garden. They have two types: sweet cherries and sour cherries. I prefer the latter, which I think work better for cakes and pastries.

Grey jacket grey skirt

I'm always very happy when I make an addition to my closet and I end up wearing it all the time.

Summer vibes

As I feared, a spring capsule wardrobe is not a realistic thing in Belgium.

Zucchini gratin the vegan way

I've never been that much into French cuisine as most of the dishes are a little too rich for my taste but there are, of course, a few exceptions. Gratin is one of them.

Looks like a suit, feels like PJs

Wanna know what's really great about having a capsule wardrobe?

Maple glazed tofu: the best thing you'll eat this week

People think tofu is boring. I used to be like them until recently. In other words, I didn't know how to cook it. I changed my mind with this spicy peanut tofu recipe and now, after trying this maple glazed tofu, I think I can call tofu one of my favourite foods. And guess what? It's very easy to make!
