Q. Why is your blog called Basil and Vogue?
A. I love food and fashion; my favourite herb is basil (c’mon would pizza be the same without it???), and Vogue because well… it’s the basis of the fashion world.
Q. How long have you been Vegan for?
A. I’ve been following a predominantly plant-based diet since a was a child as my mum always encouraged me to have a healthy diet, but I became pescetarian after I got back from Thailand in 2016 and slowly turned Vegan in 2018. As it’s been a slow transition, I do occasionally have a bit of dairy whether it be in cake, chocolate or in a meal out but I’m aiming to be 100% vegan by the end of this year, so hope you guys follow me on my Vegan journey!
Q. Where are you based?
A. This is where it gets a bit complicated haha…My base is in North London as this is where my family home is but I go to University of Leeds. However as I am currently on my industrial placement for Mondelez International, I am based in Reading during the working week this year. I usually travel back home to London to see my family and friends so you’ll mostly find me there most weekends!
Q. How old are you?
