Finally! The -r is out of the month! There were very lovely sunny days in April, but also very cold days.. like we’re used to from this month. But now May started, warmer days are coming a bit more often and more frequently (hopefully.. cuz let’s remember, it’s still the UK!). There will be baby animals everywhere and most trees are all green now. Yay for May!
VEGGIE WORLD – REVIEW
On Saturday the 8th of April I went to Veggie World and that was a big success. I did expect it to be a little bigger though, but there were lovely stalls and good food. I bought a new day/night cream from iUVO and I absolutely love it. I will write a review about it soon. This weekend 2 friends came over from the Netherlands and they came with me. I shared a Dutch Weedburger with one of them. A burger made out of Dutch seaweed. I knew about its existence, because I’ve seen it from some Dutch bloggers. You can’t get them in London yet, but I really hope they will come soon, because it was super delicious! I also handed out more than 250 leaflets in the most lovely sunshine. I’ve got some very nice reactions and it was lovely to meet so many people who are passionate about the same thing!
How was your Easter? You can read about my lovely Easter weekend in the Netherlands now, if you didn’t do that already. My boyfriend, Steven, and I started off in Amsterdam on Friday and we made a yummy Easter brunch over the weekend. I had such a good time! I’m curious about your Easter adventures! Please let me know! Oh and don’t forget to check out the hotspot list..

24/05 – 27/05 – CITYTRIP ROME
Yay! I’m going to Rome! I always wanted to go to Rome, as I hear from everyone that it’s such an amazing city. Rome is also the first destination of Elizabeth Gilbert’s ‘Eat Pray Love’ adventure and as that is my favourite book and movie, I must admit that this gives me some extra excitement! When I was in Paris, I said to myself I’d go to Rome next, so I kept my word and booked my tickets. Ohh and guess what.. Steven is coming with me! How romantic.. we will look for nice vegan friendly hotspots and I’ll, of course, write about our adventures. I can’t wait!
25/05 – ART MASTERCLASS
Are you into art and did you always wonder if you can create a master piece yourself? This is your chance! At Mini Picassos there will be given a masterclass for beginners from 19:30 – 21:30. You will make 2 small canvases and by the end of the class you will have a much better understanding of drawing still-life, mixing oils and paint on canvas. It’s £30 and you can book the class via their website.
Every Monday, from 19:15 – 21:30, Mini Picassos also offers Life Drawing classes. This is a drop in class. If you want, you can reserve an easel via the website or you can just pop in to see if there is one free. It’s only £15 and beginners are welcome. So why not?! Give it a try!
