Vegan Vs vanity…

So I’ve been doing some research into vegan hair dye and, so far as I can gather,¬†there’s nothing that’s remotely long lasting or really any good available.¬† There are various vegan brands such as Naturtint, Herbatint and Hennatint but none seem to cut it!¬†

I spent about 30 minutes deciding whether I was ready to go au naturel after 10 years of blonde high lighted frivolity – and the answer is sadly no… nearly… very nearly… but not just yet.¬† I think I’ve got about¬†two more dates with the foils before embracing my mealy mousey inner.¬†

So I’ve opted for vanity over veganism this time.¬† But hopefully for nearly the last time…

Nearly vegan…

So I had to buy a cake in¬†a hurry on the way to work today (not pregnancy munchies at 8am I promise…) and dashed into Sainsburys and found this oh so nearly vegan carrot cake.¬† Best I could do at such short notice so grabbed it and ran.¬† It’s dairy free but does have eggs in it.¬† Organic too so presumably that means that all ingredients are organic.
Verdict: Bloody delicious.  A triumph.  Moist, tasty, carroty and not too sweet. 
If I can be bothered I will call ‘Respect Organics’¬†tomorrow and see if I can get an answer to where they get their eggs from.¬† Curious.¬†

I don’t say this often… but well done The Daily Mail!

An article about the effects of animal agriculture on climate change.  Not the most in-depth article but with a readership of nearly 3 million people, this is a huge step towards educating people about the effects and consequences that their food choices heating meat and dairy has on the environment:

Will following the A-listers and going vegan like Gwyneth, Beyonce and Anne help stop global warming?
