Eating in Blackpool offers so much potential to eat junk food and ignore the fact that vegetables are a thing. Candy floss, rock, chips... the list goes on. Exhausted as we were after several travel hours and countless roller coasters we decided to go to Las Iguanas, a restaurant chain known for its Latin American … Continue reading Eating Vegan at Las Iguanas (Blackpool)
Without looking back at how much everything cost, I feel like I spent a small fortune! I'm sure I didn't as Blackpool is a cheap and cheerful place, but even so: rail transport, theme park entry and two meals out? It can't be cheap. Theme park entry we got a deal on.

What I'll say … Continue reading Travel for Less in the UK
On Tuesday I had a much-awaited catch up in Manchester with my bestest friend in all the world, Caroline (she shall feature heavily in this blog). After much umming and ahhing over where we'd have lunch, we settled on Wahaca at the Corn Exchange. For those of you who don't know, Wahaca are a Mexican … Continue reading Eating Vegan at Wahaca

That once your jean size hits the double digits or you have to reach to the back of the rack to see if they have your size you’re less deserving of pleasure? Well, actually that’s not the case. You only have to look at a … Continue reading I’ll travel more when I’m thinner.
