It is all about making the transition to vegan where she shares some amazing vegan recipes and has just been nominated for all sorts of awards. I started my blog a few months ago to share our journey and hopefully provide inspiration for others, and I really am grateful for those of you following my blog, Pinterest, and interacting through Facebook.

  1. Thanks so much for this, it’s great to find another blogger that is in NZ. I’ve had a couple of Liebster nominations, so I think I’ll just link back to you and maybe reveal a few things about myself (oh, the embarrassment). I have looked through your blog and it’s awesome + your boy is so cute I actually said ‘coochie coo’ out loud a few times. XX

    • Same! I haven’t had a chance to look at everything, but what I have read is awesome! I am excited to follow another NZ blogger with some similar interests 🙂 Oh, & I love getting more followers on Facebook so thanks so much for your like.
