My 1 year Veganniversary Giveaway!



This weekend it's officially been a whole year since I became vegan! The first year has been a whole lot easier than I thought it would be, I seem to have discovered so many more delicious foods than I would have ever tried before. It's also forced me to cook from scratch much more often (especially cakes, as I can't just pop out and buy vegan baked goods where I live). I find myself craving cheese way less than I thought I would (I was pretty much a cheese addict before becoming vegan).

I feel like I've met so many awesome people through becoming vegan, especially vegan bloggers! The vegan blogging community is so supportive and helpful. I'll be sharing some love for a few of my fav vegan bloggers during the week to say a big thank you!

Because my readers have been super duper lovely to me, I figured this would be a great time to give something back to you all. So I'm giving away a 2 month large Ad spot, along with a few of my fav vegan friendly goodies.

Here's what's in my pack of Vegan goodies:
  •  2 Barry M Nail polishes in Lilac & White nail effects (my fav colours!)
  • A re-useable Bobble Bottle. I love the idea of wasting as little plastic as possible, so I think the Bobble Bottle is a great idea.
  • Good Stuff Summer Peaches sweets - these are yumtastic!
  • 3 Mini Moo Free Hunny Comb chocolate bars
  • Forks over Knives - The cookbook. This is by far one of the best & healthiest vegan recipe books, it's great for none vegans too.
This giveaway will end on the 22nd May. Everyone is welcome to enter, you just have to be following me via Bloglovin!

    1. buffalo tempeh is the bestttt! and i agree with you chantal— i tried so many more foods when i first became vegan. and i got really good at cooking— now i'm a little of a food snob sometimes ;-) i still keep a mostly vegan diet, but now i love all the new to me options and unique recipes i keep finding and never would've known about had i not tried it for a few years first!

  3. What a wonderful giveaway! The chocolate(I mean, honeycomb and chocolate, could it get any better?!) and peach sweets sound delicious, I've been wanting one of those bottles, the nail polish is really pretty and I'd love to learn more about vegan cooking.

    Well... I recently had some sweets made from dates, almonds, cocoa powder and coconut. It was divine<3

    1. Yum! I love raw date sweets, but i've never thought to put coconut with them, sounds delicious. And the honeycomb chocolate is my fav! In fact I had to buy an extra pack because I ate the first pack I bought for the giveaway haha!

    1. How are you finding the cheese replacements? Do you get Daiya often? I regret ever trying Daiya when I was in the US because now I miss it, I keep tweeting them and telling them they need to sell in England!

  5. woohoo!! I'm glad you've found it easy. Being vegan is the best way to get into cooking and try every vegetable under the sun.

  7. It's so funny because just yesterday I was talking with some of my other friends about becoming vegetarian and vegan and how difficult it can be with old fashioned parents (my mother insists that chicken sausage isn't meat). How topical is this give away!

  11. I'm not Vegan...yet. Due to some health issues my husband and I are starting to cut out bread and we're eating a lot less meat and soon we'll have to cut out dairy as well as I feel sick after a cup of hot chocolate:( I love trying new things and eating healthier is always a good thing!Maybe I find a favourite vegan dish sooner than I think:)
