Who is Pixie?
Hello! I’m Pixie! Or as most people know me, Hannah-lyz 🙂
This is me! I thought it might be nice for you all to be able to put a face to all of my ramblings!
Now, about me.
I grew up in a city in South Wales, but when I was 15, my family upped-sticks and moved to a lovely farm in the country.
I’ve always loved the countryside and nature, so this was perfect for me. My brother and I would spend days just wandering the hills, and the farm became an animal sanctuary of sorts. Over the years, we’ve looked after so many animals! Including chickens, Shetland ponies, goats, sheep, 2 boisterous turkeys, cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigeons, and a very flirty peacock! I’ve almost lost count how many! So needless to say, I’ve always had a deep love of animals!
I’ve been vegetarian my whole life, and I made the switch over to vegan when I was about 12 years old. It’s strange to think that I’ve spent over half my life vegan! ♥ And I wouldn’t change a thing! ♥
I currently live in a wonderful house in Devon (a bit of a shock after the rolling hills of Wales!) with my lovely fiancé Lee. Our two little rabbits, Pertwee and Vincent, are currently living in Wales (where my mum has been very kindly rabbit-sitting for the past 2 years!), but hopefully in this new house, they can finally come home!
( I wanted to go for artists names, Lee wanted Dr Who names.. so we compromised! Gold star to whoever can say who they’re named after!)
Why The Vegan Pixie?
Hi, I’m Pixie… and *deep breath* – I’m a cooking addict. Phew, that feels good to say.
I’ve always been passionate about cooking! Being vegan, it can be a little tricky finding delicious, and also healthy food, whether you’re eating out, at a friend’s, or trying to find some “convenience” food to make life a little easier. So I’ve taught myself over the years to cook from scratch (after being given a lot of tips and inspiration from my Dad!). I’ve always loved cooking for family and friends, and it’s long been suggested that I open a café (something to aim for, perhaps!) So I thought that it was about time I shared my cooking with other people, too.
My blog has recently undergone a name change – from “Pixie Produce” to “The Vegan Pixie” (which is why my banner still needs updating!).
The reason for this is that, when I first started my blog, I had intended on creating recipes to then produce and sell to the lovely vegans around the world. I’ve even got a health and hygiene certificate! (Good news for friends coming to eat!). But as the months went on, I soon realised that what I loved doing was creating and sharing my recipes with everyone. Nothing makes me happier than reading a comment saying “I tried making this, and loved it!”.
It never ceases to amaze me that other people make and enjoy the same foods I do, and I’m honoured and humbled by every comment!
I’m so happy to be a part of the vegan blogging community, and I’d just like to say a quick “Thank you!” for stopping by :).
So have a browse, ask any questions if you want (I love answering them!) and I hope you find something you enjoy!
And if you have a blog too, comment and let me know :). I love seeing what other people come up with!
Much love and sparkles =]
