Hot Right Now: Food

Hi Beautifuls. Anyone and everyone at the moment is talking about Veganism. I like to think I’m Veganish. Not 100% committee to the cause but will happily live off plant based food a lot of the time. On my Instagram I’ve been posting a few extra foodie photos recently. There is a reason for this. […]
