Nakd Bar overload

Hi everyone,

I’m back on the blog. How are all of you? I’ve well. I’m in Sweden at the moment, home for the holidays and enjoying some quality time with friends and family.

A while ago I wrote to Nakd after a disappointing Nakd bar experience and they really went above and beyond! I wrote to them on Twitter saying that a Nakd bar I had just did not taste right at all. They were extremely quick with their response. I didn’t mean to complain I just asked whether the Nakd bar in question was meant to taste that way (it was a new flavour I tried). They immediately asked for my email address and a customer assistant got in touch with to send out a box of Nakd bars to me as an apology. I really didn’t expect this at all and it was extremely generous of them!

So two days later, a Nakd box arrived to my flat full of all their flavours! What incredible customer service! This really made me so happy and it’s nice to see a company really value their customers this way. There are a couple of flavours I haven’t tried before so I’ll try and put a mini review of my favourites and least favourites once I’ve been through the box 😛

Lunch at Martha’s

Hi!

I’m back! I handed in my essay yesterday and right now I can relax a bit. I still have my dissertation to work on. Feels nice to be able to breathe a little bit 😛 After I my essay in yesterday Jamie and I went into town to buy a Christmas tree. We were both starving so we popped by Martha’s as I was craving their beautifully delicious falafel. It’s baked and not fried so it’s delicious and good for you a win, win situation! Jamie opted for their special, which was a Greek inspired stew with pork, he was very happy with his choice. Great place for us I love their vegetarian and vegan options but they still offer meat options for Jamie. He likes vegan and vegetarian food but is more of a meat lover than I am 🙂

We managed eventually to find a small Christmas Tree, a real one and it’s perfect! It smells amazing! It’s our first Christmas tree in our own home together and it felt like such a special moment. Now it’s all decorated and looking amazing in our living room. It felt like the flat finally got a bit of Christmas spirit, which I love!

Hope all of you had an amazing Friday and I will speak to you again very soon xx

Reducetarian

Hi,

Sorry it’s been very quiet here on the blog lately. It’s the end of term and a lot of stuff is going on. In the middle of all the chaos I found time to watch this amazing TedTalk, which was truly eye opening to me. For someone who has consciously reduced my meat intake, I’ve felt a bit difficult to find a name for how I eat, until this clip. Reducetarian incorporates everything I believe in into one term. It shows that you are the best you can to reduce your meat intake but perhaps aren’t willing to stop eating meat entirely. At the beginning of this year, I would never have thought that I would be where I am now with my meat intake. I’m sure not everyone will agree with this video but it’s a great way to get more people engaged in this matter.

Watch this video, and as Brian Kateman says, a lot of you probably are reducetarians 🙂

I forgot to mention when I wrote this yesterday, I’m not striving to put a label on myself. Sometimes it is just nice to know that there are other people out there that have similar ideas and opinions as you 🙂 I think labels are restrictive and I almost feel at bit claustrophobic. I do the best I can and that goes with everything I do. But I very much agree with what Brian says and believes in. So no I won’t be introducing myself as a reducetarian anytime soon. It’s not who I am. It’s just something I believe in and am inspired by, that we can all do something to make a difference.
