Valentine’s Gifts From Lovehoney

It was Valentine’s Day yesterday. This post may have been better going live then, but I may have had a date that night, got a little distracted and forgot to post (sorry). For some of you, Valentine’s Day may have meant celebrating with your partner, exchanging gifts, and generally feeling smug. Some of you single folk may have got organised and planned a single friends meal out or signed up for a dating event, feeling ready to enjoy the evening despite lacking a bae. Others may have been stuck at home, reenacting the “all by myself” scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary, or just generally feeling miserable.

If you fell into the third category, I have a suggestion. WHY NOT BUY YOURSELF A SEX TOY?!

Honest Thoughts On #Veganuary

I’d definitely consider myself an animal lover. Kids I’m ambivalent about, but if someone’s got a dog I’m there. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was 12. I don’t wear fur or leather. I’ve switched my beauty products to (mostly) cruelty-free. I don’t visit zoos, or places with drugged up tigers. Instead, when I go abroad I volunteer at ethical animal sanctuaries.

The one thing I haven’t done though is go vegan. Despite the movement really taking off over the last few years, and the cruel farming practices in the dairy and egg industries becoming more widely known, I’m yet to jump on that bandwagon.

5 Reasons To Date A Vegan

Known for being easily offended and annoying as hell, vegans don’t have the best of reputations. Despite having the best interest of animals and the environment at heart, studies have shown that 34% of daters would consider veganism a dealbreaker in a potential partner.

However, aside from of the extreme types on social media (and let’s face it, most of social media is extreme these days), vegans aren’t all that bad. In fact, most of them are actually pretty great. So in the spirit of #Veganuary, here are 5 reasons you should reconsider if you’re in the 34%.

Golden

People blame dating apps for the bad behaviour we see on the dating scene today, but scoundrels have been around since the prehistoric era.

The year was 1959. Maureen had been engaged to marry John, but while serving in the air force, John had decided to pull a disappearing act. Or ghosted, as the term is now. He may not have been swiping elsewhere on Tinder, but shady behaviour has always been present.

It was Friday evening. Maureen went to visit John’s parents. John’s parents liked Maureen. She was petite and beautiful, with a heart of pure gold. What parents wouldn’t want their son to marry her? They expressed their condolences.

Goals For 2018

My previous post was about 2017. But that’s all water under the bridge now. Any drama that happened that year? That’s in the past. It’s time to move forward.

This year, I haven’t set myself new year’s resolutions as such. But I have set myself some goals to work towards, and I guess an overall vision of where I want my life to go. So without further ado, here are the main things I want to achieve this year.

A Recap Of 2017

It’s the final day of 2017. In addition to preparing for whatever New Year’s Eve shenanigans I have going on, for me the 31st of December is also a time of reflection. What happened this year? What did I do well? What could I have done better? What do I want from next year?

This one was an interesting year. I had high hopes for this year and a lot of aspirations, however I also had a lot of misfortunes which meant that that they didn’t quite go to plan. I feel like I’ve learnt a lot this year and, as cliche as it sounds, come out a stronger person. So as I get ready to turn the page and begin a new chapter, here’s a recap of my year.

The UK Blog Awards

Right guys, I’m up for an award.

The UK Blog Awards essentially do what it says on the tin- they are there to recognise and celebrate the best in blogging. One thing I love about the awards is that they’re so diverse; rather than just the usual fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogs, there are categories for marketing, automotive, and of course DATING (although sadly there is no sex category- THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE!). Overall though it’s great to see blogs and vlogs outside the main clique get recognised. They also have categories for individual and company influencers.
