Tarte 'Rainforest of the Sea Vol. III' palette review + swatches!

Hello, my loves! Today, I am very excited to talk to you about this gorgeous highlighting eyeshadow palette by Tarte, called 'Rainforest of the Sea Vol. III' (£30, Tarte). I stumbled across this one whilst browsing Tarte's vegan makeup section, and, as a huge fan of shimmery eyeshadows, I was immediately drawn to how pretty it looked. This was actually my first time any of Tarte's makeup, making this review a very special one! Today, I will be sharing with you my honest thoughts on this little palette. Hope you enjoy!

What I eat in a day on a vegan diet - weekend edition

Hello, loves! Today, I am very excited to share with you the first in a new series of 'what I eat in a day' posts. Personally, I am a huge fan of these types of posts and videos - as a helpless foodie, I am always interested in new recipes and ideas. Today, I want to show you what I eat on a typical weekend day. This is by no means a dietary guide on how you should be eating - my food choices are not always the healthiest, and I like to keep any meal prep as minimal as possible (I'm pretty lazy, and helpless in the kitchen!). A lot of people seem to think that eating vegan involves a lot of cooking and prep; so today, I want to show you just how easy it can be. Hope you enjoy!

As it was a Sunday after a pretty rough week, I decided to treat myself to my favourite breakfast ever - a cheese toastie! Cheese toasties were always my favourite thing to eat before I went vegan, and it wasn't easy to find an equally satisfying dairy-free replacement. Having said that, the Violife cheese slices come pretty close - they're probably my favourite vegan cheese alternative that I've found so far. They're super creamy and milky, and melt really nicely when grilled. I've topped the toastie with fresh tomato slices and some szechuan pepper, chilli and ginger salt. I've also had a few strawberries so that I could pretend that it was a healthier breakfast, ha!

Since we're still in the summer season and fruits are not as expensive, I typically have a nice, big fruit salad for lunch. I am not much of a chef and like to keep things simple, so I typically just mix whatever fruit I have left at home. For this delicious salad, I used one large banana, a few handful of strawberries and mandarin oranges. Bananas are always a staple for me in any fruit meal - they're super healthy and much more filling than most fruits. It might not be the most adventurous, but it was definitely a really nice, light and satisfying meal!

For a cheeky afternoon snack, I had this scrumptious almond vanilla dessert by Alpro. It was so yummy and convincingly milky, that I had to kept reminding myself that it's actually vegan! These pots are delicious and only 72 calories (I don't care about calories myself, but I think that the low calorie count would appeal to a lot of people), so I also had a banana for a 'healthy balance'!

For dinner, I decided to prepare one of my favourite, easy vegan meals. I had some mash potatoes, baked Quorn's fishless fingers (which honestly taste just as good as the real thing) and a simple mushroom stir fry. I am not a talented cook and like to keep my meal prep as easy as possible (I'm lazy!), but this dinner was still very satisfying and delicious. For vegan mash potatoes, you can use soy milk and a nice-tasting, dairy-free margarine like Vitalite to make them extra creamy. For the veggie stir fry, I simply chopped up some organic mushrooms and tomatoes and fried them in one teaspoon of vegetable oil. I also added some thyme, lemon and bay salt for extra flavour!

And that is my whole day of eating! I know that my food choices are probably not the most exciting, but I just wanted to show you how easy it is to eat vegan - you can even have grilled cheese! Thanks to the many dairy and meat-free alternatives, it's so effortless to swap out your favourites for an equally tasty, vegan option. Hope you enjoyed this post, and let me know if you'd like to see more content like this!

Come shopping with me! My weekly vegan groceries

Hello, my loves! Today, I am inviting you to go on a fully-vegan, fully-awesome shopping trip with me! I've had a lot of questions regarding my current vegan diet and dairy/meat alternatives, so I wanted to show you just how many amazing options there are. I find that a lot of supermarkets have really stepped up their game recently with regards to vegan foods, which makes me so, so happy! When I first tried going vegan over a year ago, I felt very restricted as there just weren't many options around. Now, with supermarket sections dedicated to meat and dairy-free alternatives (including things like cheese, yogurt, milk, pizza and even ice cream!), I am finding it completely effortless to do my weekly shopping. And, I think that even if you would never consider going vegan, it might be fun for you to try out some of these alternatives - a lot of them are seriously delicious! Hope you enjoy this shopping trip with me!
