Hi, I've been doing the vegan thing since March, although I was previously a vegetarian. I have no vegan friends and generally most of my friends think I'm crazy for living off juices and smoothies!…Continue
"Focus on the food first then worry about the other stuff. If you get the food down then stem out to products such as clothing and cosmetics and stuff like that. Don't make it too crazy and overwhelming at first. Good luck"
"Well, I can't be a local mentor from here, but I can tell you that my experience in being a successful high carb, mostly raw vegan has definitely revolved around having people I could ask questions when I found myself in a rut. So feel…"
"Hi Catherine, I would recommend the UK Fruit Festival group on Facebook. I have a number of kind friends through Facebook in the UK that are also vegan. Other than that I would continue seeking for like minded associates. I traveled around the world…"
"Hey I can give you all the advice you need! Shop in The Body Shop, Lush, Superdrug (a lot of their stuff is cruelty free). Also: https://www.ecco-verde.com/ this online store is AMAZING. Ask me as many questions as you like :)"
"I'm expecting we can all relate to this a bit... I get fed up with being considered a weirdo and don't want to have to argue my point everytime someone gets aggressive about what I eat. Which is surprisingly often! As you go through life…"
"I watched a show once and a lady would slice lemons in half then rub the open side on her armpits and because lemons naturally kill bacteria its supposed to be a super easy way to keep your armpits smelling good and clean. but if you cut yourself…"
"Hey Catherine, definitely give the "no poo" method a try, it really does work (I actually just posted a blog about it no that long ago), and use baking soda and apple cider vinegar to clean my hair. I hear you though as for not having any…"
"Do it! Takes no time at all! You're just using the pure ingredients, hardly any effort required. And honestly, my skin has never looked better. No chemicals, nothing harsh or artificial etc.
Re buying ready-made vegan…"
"Hi Carly, thank you so much, yes do let me know if your fiance has any good tips, Surrey is not far from me. If he knows any really fab shops I'll do a trip to find them! I've bought an enormous Dr Bronner's online. Thanks for…"
"Thank you, I'm fascinated by the 'no-poo' idea but I tried and my hair just looked horrific. I'm guessing you just power through that phase? I'll wait until the summer holidays maybe. Thanks for your reply!"

I have always been a vegetarian who felt guilty about eating dairy! I found Freelee's video '5 reasons not to eat eggs' on you tube and was heartbroken. Needless to say, I have been avoiding dairy ever since. I have been eating vegan about 6 weeks now, trying to stay raw till 4 and mostly succeeding, but I could use a bit of support. My friends think I'm crazy and most try to put me off. I'm having more trouble shopping for vegan toiletries, etc than eating vegan. I really think what you guys are doing is fabulous, thank you for all the stuff you put online!

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
I love old books and classic movies. Anything with Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn. If there's singing involved, that's even better. I'm a big crafty crafter (see my website) and love cycling, singing and dancing!
