Autumn adventures at Go Ape!

'So... I just jump off the platform... into the air?' 

Teetering on the edge of a wooden platform - the last solid surface before a 400m long zip wire suspended 150ft above the forest floor - I clearly wasn't entirely convinced that I should step out into thin air.

As I stared anxiously across the Trossachs National Park, I had to make a choice: change my mind and turn back or jump.

I jumped.

New vegan options at Zizzi

You might have read that Zizzi launched a new autumn menu recently. If you follow me on Twitter then you've probably seen me raving about it - I was already a huge fan of their vegan pizzas but the launch of the new menu gave me an excuse to go back.

Twice in one week...

Vegan peanut butter and salted caramel brownies

I don't want to cause mass cake-related panic, but these might be my favourite thing I've ever baked. That may have a little something to do with my slight - ahem - peanut butter addiction and new obsession with salted caramel. It must be the colder weather or the autumnal hues on my Instagram feed but I can't get enough of either flavour - then, of course, there's chocolate, but do I really need an excuse to crave that?

Snowboarding with Crystal Ski Holidays

'Have you snowboarded before?'




'Do you skateboard? Rollerblade?'


As I gulped and glanced nervously past the instructor and up the snow slope, I suddenly wondered why I'd volunteered to strap a wooden board to my feet and throw myself down a hill.

Scottish Vegan Festival 2016

Last Saturday I went along to the Scottish Vegan Festival with the lovely Nicole who blogs over at Ginger Kitchen. I've been to a few vegan events before - including the monthly Big Vegan Fest at The Flying Duck and the Edinburgh Vegan Festival earlier this summer - but I was really excited about the Scottish Vegan Festival, especially because it was held in the huge Edinburgh Corn Exchange venue and was organised by Farplace Animal Rescue.
