Why I'm No Longer Vegan

I went vegan at the beginning of 2016.  I loved it and was so passionate about it.  I bought loads of vegan cookbooks, created Pinterest boards and followed loads of vegan bloggers on Instagram and YouTube.  I loved checking out vegan restaurants and of course shouting from the rooftops that I was vegan to anyone that would listen.  I was vegan and proud. At that point in my life I was single, living by myself and so not really eating out that much.

My Favourite Home Instagram Accounts To Follow

As I've mentioned before (probably more than once) we bought our first house last year and I am really excited to get into decorating it, putting our own stamp on it and really making it ours.  So obviously I've been pinning ideas on home boards and following inspirational accounts on Instagram and I thought I would share some of my favourites that I've recently discussed. @scandanavianhomes This account has nearly 1 million followers and it's not hard to see why.  A typical scandy account showing cosy greys, clean whites and lots of gorgeous wooden pieces. @shnordic Based in England.  This is another Scandinavian account because honestly anything they don't know about home style isn't worth knowing.  Everything is black and white with hints of tan and greenery which is my favourite look right now. @hygge_for_home Based in Wales.  This account is a little more dark and moody but still with a cosy feel.  She has the most beautiful
