Skinfull Affairs is not only a vegan beauty salon but also a vegan beauty salon that hosts many different events. These events mostly steer towards a cruelty-free ethical way of living. I attended Irish Blogger Holly White’s event in Skinfull Affairs which was in aid of The ISPCA. The event – How To Transition To Plant Based, turned out to not only be very informative but also very fun and tasty.
Holly, whom is very quickly turning into my favourite Irish blogger due to her positive attitude and lovely down to earth personality ran a great evening at Skinfull Affairs, doing live demos of some of her favourite quick vegan meals and snacks, talking us through her vegan journey & how it all came about and some helpful tips for being vegan in Dublin.
I got there just in time, with many ladies already seated and with vegan finger food from Sova Vegan Butchers spread out for us all to nibble on. After a few minutes Holly started the evening off with a talk on her vegan journey and then began with some food demonstrations. Holly’s food mostly consisted of snacks and meals that can be done within 5 – 10 minutes, which is ideal in my opinion 😉 . Most of Holly’s food can be found on her website Holly.e.
The vegan food Holly showed us on the night were
- Breakfast Smoothie
- Nut Butter
- Raspberry Chia Jam
- Breakfast Chia Pudding
- Cranberry and Cashew Energy Balls
- Garlic & Zucchini Noodle Dinner
My favourites were the nut butter and the zucchini noodle dinner – they were particularly AMAZING!!! What i liked most about all the meals Holly showed us were how easy they were to make. As a lazy cook this is ideal.
When Holly finished up, Carmel from the ISPCA came in and gave a quick talk on how the ISPCA works and how they help animals in need and how we can help going forward. €426 was raised on the night and went towards the ISPCA.
After Carmel, a raffle was held with some lovely goodies from Skinfull Affairs and a social media competition for another prize.
What I took from the event (as well as an awesome goodie bag full of: Nutmost, Yonka Facial Cleanser, a bath bomb, a Linwoods milled flaxseed and goji berries sachet, some sample pots from Skinfull Affairs and a voucher with 25% of treatments in Skinfull Affairs… cannot wait to use that) was some new easy vegan recipes, some good advice on vegan weddings and a nice Wednesday night out spent in good company. I would highly recommend any similar up and coming events Holly will host and to keep an eye on Skilful Affairs Facebook Page for any new events they will be hosting.
