We have some super people filming for us and if you are doing something special for WVD do grab your camera as we would love to show the world that we celebrate and get active for WVD and National Vegan Month!

The Vegetarian Society Awards

Glyn and I had a super time at The Vegetarian Society Awards on Thursday – pics will be added soon!

It was amazing to be asked to present an award to one of the super winners – and it’s also great to be able to meet the people behind the products who make our lives more easier and fun – catering for our animal friendly diets!

We chatted with Rose Eliot again – the incredible veggie cook book expert – with more than 50 veggie recipe books to her name – you will be able to check out our exclusive interview with Rose shortly too.

All the team at The Vegetarian Society are a great bunch – all saying how much they love their roles at the VS and feel so grateful to be working there. What a super team of bubbly passionate fellow Veggies!

I presented the last award of the night – I was quite nervous! I wanted to say a few words and was even going to throw in a joke – and Glyn stopped me!

(How many veggies does it take to change a light bulb – 2 one to change the light bulb and one to read the ingredients) Groan – yes I know it’s been heard a zillion times before – and still makes me smile!)

Anyway my little speech of about 3 minutes seemed to go down well with a super round of applause – which did throw me a little! I was very happy to receive the applause though!

I presented to 2 lovely people from Hotel Chocolat and funny enough I was in there a few days before and was pleased to see some more options labeled as vegan.

Winners are noted below…

2 Hours Live on BBC Essex

On Friday I was live on air at BBC Essex and it was a partially fab show – I am a regular ‘Loud Woman’ on BBC Essex and do a 2 hour show on a regular basis with Sadie Nine – we talk about a whole mix of things and surprise surprise I manage to wangle something vegan into every show!!! ;O)

I thought I would tell you about the show on Friday – you can listen again until the 4th Nov I think – so please do check it out if you fancy a giggle…


Finally do have a look and sign up to the VeggieVisionCashback – lots of special Christmas offers will be added soon…..
