December 10, 2014

Birthday pic joe and Graham bday meal henri & Andrew

This month’s Funky Raw magazine features my 2 reviews on a Vegetarian Paris Guide (& the local Calabash Pop-Up, previously featured here). It’s a bumper issue!

The mag & food info is on here: http://www.funkyraw.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=541

The Guide Books can be purchased here: www.veggieguides.com

An excerpt reads … ‘By the time I’d read half way through, I was feeling a) hungry, from all the delicious looking photos of the dishes in Paris and b) wanting to go on another visit to Paris!

Who would like to go out to visit Paris for a few of these places mentioned?’

This enlivens our spirit, creative ability and our imagination…. The sequences are suitable for beginners and more experienced students alike to improve their current yoga practice. Theresa is a qualified and experienced Children’s Yoga Teacher and has also taught adults on retreats in Turkey and on short business classes in London.

Yoga and fresh raw living foods naturally combine to enhance our inner and outer experience; to help us to flourish internally & externally and re-connect to our inner-selves.

Top Tips for Lent Day 5: eco clothing

March 9, 2014

There are numerous new clothing companies niwadsys that produce better quality fabrics. Here are some of the great companies I’ve used and still contine to enjoy Over the past 11 yrs. Hemp, cotton and bamboo fabrics are light, layer well and are enjoyable in a variety of rainbow colours. They are hard wearing and versatile.  I much prefer them now to other fabrics.

Brain tree tops,  trousers and socks in hemp

Organic cotton from Greenfibres – underwear

Hempish for all hemp clothing and bags

Bamboo is like cotton t shirt fabric,  soft and stretchy. The socks and training clothes at BAM bamboo clithing are very soft and wearable. Also I like Bailey at Blackbird in Blackheath for dresses,  tops and scarves.

Where else do you like? I am interested to learn of the increasing shops in London and elsewhere. It is worth looking out for these shops and stalls at festivals this summet inc. London Permaculture festival,  festival of life and London vegan fair, Veg fest and Oxford Green Fair.
