You may not have noticed, but charcoal products have become quite the trend.
From shampoos to deodorants, charcoal has bulldozed its way into the conscience of the health and beauty industry and unsurprisingly (hey it’s new and all-natural) we’re lapping it up.
Naturally there have been some misses (hello charcoal lattes), but one product is showing no limit to its impact on the health industry.
Charcoal teeth whitening powder became a popular celebrity endorsement this year – unsurprising given our obsession with trying anything to brighten our smiles.
Over on Boots.com you will find Pro Teeth Whitening’s Activated Charcoal – a powder that stands out from the crowd.
For the environmentally conscious person, it boasts a mighty checklist.
It’s 100% natural, contains no synthetic additives and has a selection of ingredients that are non harmful.
On top of that, it also contains extracts of ginger root, calcium and sodium for added benefits to your teeth and gums.

Dining out with your non-vegan friends when you’re a vegan can be very difficult.
While there are plenty of ‘normal’ restaurants out there, not all of them will cater to vegans – and few of them are able to do it well. And your non-vegan friends don’t necessarily want to go vegan, even if it’s just for one meal.11 new London restaurants and pop ups to try this November
But November is the perfect time to eat out with your non-vegan friends, especially in London, as many restaurants around the city are upping their plant-based… Read the full story

Happy World Vegan Day!
Since it’s officially the day to celebrate all things vegan it’s only right we take a moment to champion the underdogs.
The start-ups and small businesses who felt so passionate about going vegan that they decided to turn it into their job.
We’ve got a round-up of the best vegan start-ups from chocolate to cushions.
From burgers to beauty here’s our top 12 independent vegan brands.
1.The Vurger Co
The Vurger Co was set up after their owners were frustrated at the artificial nature of most vegan burgers.
So they went about creating the most amazing plant-based burgers using quality ingredients and vegan… Read the full story
Years before going vegan I had this stereotype of vegans as angry, hemp-wearing, natty dreadlocked moralistic beings.Should vegans date non-vegans?
Partly because my experience of them to date had been exactly that.
As a vegetarian I convinced myself for 20 years that meat was murder but dairy was doable.
Every so often I would stop eating eggs – especially after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals.
However I had a flit or two with fish in my mid twenties, until at a fish market in Vietnam I saw… Read the full story
But what happens if you have to choose between central heating and a hot meal?
To highlight this reality faced by many families this winter, chef, activist, and food writer Jack Monroe has partnered with energy company npower to create a popup dining experience.
Diners at Fuel, a one-off dining event, will have to choose between warm food in freezing surroundings or forgoing food for a warmer setting.
Diners were in for a shock at their trial run in Whitechapel.

If you couldn’t tell already, we’re big fans of lip art.
And now, someone’s created the #EyeBallLips, which, as the hashtag suggests, is makeup applied to make lips look like an eyeball.
The beauty trend features lips that have been decorated with a white eyeball, a shiny iris, some thick black lashes and even some eyeliner.
The look was debuted to Instagram back in July by beauty blogger Diana Moisa, who specialises in creating… Read the full story

Good news, beauty fans: Storybook Cosmetics will finally be releasing its long-awaited Mean Girls palette.
On 1 November, the beauty brand will be selling the Storybook Cosmetics X Mean Girls Burn Book Storybook Palette online, for $55 (£42).
While we’re a little confused as to why it wasn’t released on 3 October (seriously they missed a Mean Girls inspired opportunity there), we are super excited for it.
The palette will feature 12 ‘totally fetch’, cruelty-free colours, which are all highly pigmented and contain matte, shimmer and pearl finishes.
Colours include yellows, greens, pinks and blues, which all have fitting names such as yellow’s: ‘Is… Read the full story

There are a few things that everyone in the world has to have a relationship with: food, sleep, sex, and money.
You’re either getting enough of these things or you aren’t. Your relationship with them is smooth and pain-free, or it’s intensely stressful.
And yet, despite these being common experiences of being a human in the world, we’re still a little uncomfortable talking about them.
Food and sleep aren’t taboo. We’re getting more open about sex. But there’s one area that makes most of us clam up: Money.
We stumble when asking about salaries, we’d go silent if someone were to ask what’s going on in our bank account (but would proudly share… Read the full story
Today marks World Vegan Day and as there are so many stories of people finding a switch to veganism so life-changing, I thought it was only right to share how actually, veganism didn’t work for me.
There’s been a huge surge towards veganism over the past few years and – while ethical reasons are of course fundamentally important – there’s also been a massive shift to going ‘plant-based’ (as it’s now trendily billed) for health reasons.10 pieces of advice for a newly diagnosed IBD patient

Being vegan is becoming increasingly easy in London.
A few years ago, you could barely eat out anywhere and people treated you like you had two heads.
Today, every chain restaurant is trying to cash in on the green pound and lovely plant-based markets are springing up across the UK offering delicious, cruelty free snacks and products for all.
But going on holiday can still be a really tricky business. Hell, travelling as a vegetarian can, at times, seem impossible. Take out eggs and cheese and in some places, you’re in for one long chip fest.
Which is why so many of us pack our own food for going away.

There are a number of things couples should share as relationships grow older and stronger. Love, trust, and responsibility are just a few.
But you know what I think shouldn’t be added to the list? Bank accounts.
I don’t believe couples should feel pressured to share a bank account. I believe people should feel entitled to keep their money separate from their relationship, without being judged for it.
I’m all for joint accounts when it comes to keeping things such as rent and bills in order. If you’ve got a child, a joint account is necessary. And wedding funds are made easier if you’re both contributing into one shared account.

Adults always think they know what kids like.
And you’ve only got to look under any child’s bed in January to see that what they think children want is pretty far from the reality.
Which is why Asda has made a wise move and employed a load of kids to put together their toy collection this year.
The ‘Chosen by Kids’ range is going to be available at 626 stores nationwide, as well as online, and will include 20% more stock for each of the top 20 toys.
It’ll feature over 100 toys, all of which have been selected by 500 children across one day in July, when top toy suppliers… Read the full story
What do vegans eat? Where do they get their protein? How do vegans even live?Big news: London’s first vegan pie and mash shop has just arrived
These are the everyday questions that we have to face.
Thankfully the internet was created to help vegans deal with such struggles and find a place where other non-animal eating compassionate humans also reside.

2017 is coming to an end, and with it, (we hope) will come the end of all the overdone food trends we truly cannot wait to see the back of.
Charcoal tinged snacks. Everything topped with avocado. Overpriced bowls of poke.
These trends can’t just disappear quietly, though. They need to be dethroned by a whole new batch of culinary trends.
If you can’t wait to find out what those new trends will be, never fear. Waitrose’s annual food and drink report is here to detail its predictions for what all the cool kids will be eating in 2018. Read on.

The wellness world might be full of plant-based alternatives but when it comes to bodybuilding, veganism is still something of an anomaly.
I’ve been told by numerous trainers and avid muscle men than you simply can’t build muscle on a plant-based diet.
That, of course, is rot.
Just look at people like Jon Venus, who’s about as ripped as you can get and has been vegan for years.
Veganism and fitness are natural bedfellows – if done properly. You’ve got to think carefully about your macros, consider what protein sources you’re going to stock up on, avoid the high-fat, high-sugar, highly processed vegan junk food that is readily available.

Trick-or-treating and the Halloween parties may be over, but there is still some cultural significance when it comes to celebrating the day after Halloween.
Halloween is also known as, All Hallows’ Evening, Allhalloween, All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve.People who say that they're 'just being honest' are a**holes
Halloween is the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day, also known as All Saints’ Day.

To match the darkening days there’s a lot of dark energy around in November. It won’t always feel fair this month, and that’s because it’s not.
The main problem is that there just aren’t any of the planets willing to stand up and fight against all the negativity. You need a hero, and that’s hard to find.
It’s not all doom and gloom though, and the sun will shine through if you can keep your patience and not get into too many fights. It could be tough, but hang onto it when the clouds part and keep looking forward.

If you’ve ever struggled with depression or anxiety, you’ll no doubt have been encouraged to do some form of exercise.
Often, that can be unhelpful – particularly when you barely have the energy to drag yourself out of bed.
But many runners do claim that running does help them to manage mental health dips.
A year-long survey by England Athletics of over 13,000 people across England has revealed that 74% of runners have experienced an improvement in their mental health and wellbeing from running.
And nearly 90% of those runners say that their happiness has increased as a direct result of running in a group – citing new friendships and… Read the full story
Salad. Lentils. Nuts.Cheese, cream, custard, the lot: Dairy-free alternatives tried and tested
That is the common perception of a vegan diet.
But when I tell people I can enjoy chicken wings, cheezy fries, sausages, meaty burgers, fish and chips and even my homeland staple of haggis there is often confusion.
Once non-vegans try these dishes they are usually totally confounded – and drooling all down themselves. ‘But this… is vegan?’ It sure is, pal.
So here are a few top plant-based eats that everyone should get their lips round. Pronto.
