Riverford have vegan, vegetarian and omnivore options, seperated into simple or more elaborate recipes, designed to match whatever you’re after. We got one simple vegan which took 30 minutes, and one foodie vegan which took 60 minutes. I would usually turn my nose up at spending 60 entire minutes in the kitchen, but me and Danny cooked that one together and it was actually a really nice activity to do as a couple – look at Riverford, bringing us closer together! I’m only being semi-sarcastic, it was honestly really fun.

Recently, I had a bout of Very Bad Anxiety. I say recently, it’s actually still going on. About four days into this breakdown, my beautiful boyfriend Danny, bless his heart, came home from work with a bag full of LUSH products that he had spent his birthday money on, because he is the sweetest man in the world and I do not deserve him in the slightest. Thought I’d do a little debrief of what exactly he bought, and why these products in particular are a little bit better than your average bath bomb for relaxation and chill.

Formerly a temporary pop-up vendor in Trinity Kitchen, Wanderer Junk have been serving up seitan burgers & loaded fries to the grateful citizens of Leeds since the start of summer. I think I speak on behalf of literally every Leeds vegan when I say we were all dreading the day their residency would end and we would be left trekking to Kirkstall for MOG’s once more. However, in September, they saved all our asses and announced they had taken over the Chapel of Church, which is right next to the Leeds Uni campus. God. Bless. These. Guys.

I never thought I could fancy an item of clothing this much but it honestly takes my breath away, it’s so bloody beautiful. I’m fully aware that I will never wear a dress like this in this lifetime, but a girl can dream, and also spend every waking moment checking to see if someone is selling theirs secondhand.

I’ve had many an adventure in this place. When I was 7 months pregnant, I ordered a virgin strawberry mojito and they brought a definitely-not-virgin-and-actually-very-alcoholic one to the table and I “accidentally” sipped too much of it before sending it back because when you’ve gone that long without alcohol you need to take what you can get. We also came here about ten minutes after Danny proposed to me. He proposed, I said yes, we got very excited and contemplated finally going to a fancy restaurant and ordering champagne, and then we saw the Common Room and said fuck it, let’s get a kebab.
