Vegfest was brilliant! Such an inspiring day full of delish food and like-minded people :)Our local one took place on Bristol waterfront, and it is still on today. We ate a lot of cake and brought home a lot of paperwork and goodies:
They included vegan versions of Milky Way, creme egg and Mars bars, flavoured vodka, a T-shirt, and a bat ring (obviously).
There were hundreds of stalls and too many companies to mention individually, but a couple of particular standouts were:
- Viva! who do undercover investigating into the horrible welfare conditions on farms… even “organic” and “RSPCA approved” ones where the animals are allegedly cuddled to death…
- A bag, wallet and notebook company called Thamon, who make leather-like material out of leaves! I am not someone who usually obsesses over handbags, but they had an absolutely beautiful electric-blue coloured one which I was staring at for ages! 😀 Future present request…??
In other news, I had my last shift at Lidl last Saturday! I made an Oreo cake which went down a treat:
I finished my last uni assessment on Friday as well, and am moving house on Thursday to a nearby town. I am excited to still be local to Bath and Bristol, which are very creative and vegan-friendly places, and seeing what my next step will be…
