So as you've probably seen, I teamed up with Afrochronicles to talk about my natural hair for an amazing video interview (if you haven't, I've linked it below, and you'll also find it over on the youtube page).
I wanted to share with you guys the incredible location we used to shoot. "Palm Vaults" located in Hackney, east London. Noted as the most "instagrammable" cafe in London by the metro! There are two reasons why I wanted to share this gorgeous little cafe with you guys! My first reason, because of the fantastic array of coffee's you can enjoy. From what I remember, the one coffee that really stood out to me, was the 'avocado' coffee, great for the adventurous and filled with those fabulous avocado nutrients! You'll also find some awesome gluten free brownies and yummy sandwiches that compliment your stay fabulously!
Pictured below (bottom right) Is a cappuccino, but not just any cappuccino - a cashew nut cappuccino! Now, I know a few readers may think that the concept does sound rather odd, however this was, hands down one of the best coffee's I have ever had. I remember exactly how it tasted, creamy, smooth, and warm. The cashew, not too rich allowed the coffee to become a perfect blend of decliousness. A perfect winter drink.
Following this, have you seen the place? How exotic, Earthy and hipster is this cafe? As you walk into the cafe you're greeted by probably the most chilled staff ever, their smiles as heart-warming as their coffee. Then as you proceed further into the cafe, all around you, are palm leaves. Real palm leaves. The sky, filled with plants, and they're all around you too. I recommend this place for those of you who want to escape while you try to get that 2000 word assignment finished before your 9am deadline, or for you bloggers that want to be more creative and need a place to really unwind and relax while you delve into your reporting!
I've attached a link to the palm vaults official Facebook page, and don't forget that you can also check out their Instagram (@palmvaults) to see what else they may have on offer!
Everyone knows how amazing Ryvita slices are for you, particularly if you're trying to watch your calories. We all know, however, that they can be a little bland sometimes!
Above, I've dressed up the slices with a delicious rocket salad and sliced carrot! To top this off, I've used some slices of Norwegian salmon - which comes pre-seasoned with thyme! You can purchase salmon slices from almost anywhere, this salmon was purchased from lidl for probably about £4* . Of course you can tailor this recipe to your own specific preferences!
I know I have a good amount of vegetarian readers, so instead of using Salmon, why not try some seasoned avocado or tomato slices!
For all my foodies!

Most of you remember that not long ago I was vegetarian. However, due to a variety of reasons I decided to start eating meat again. But don't worry! I'll still be cooking and consuming food to share with you Veggies!
