Hi, I’m Yanar and this is my collection of health, beauty, wellness, ethical living, fitness and food inspirations. I launched this blog about ten years ago when sustainability and ethical living were just niche interests – now, thankfully, many more people are interested.
A life-long vegetarian (since I was nine) and vegan for 12 years (long before the trend!), ethical and sustainable living has always been important to me. I’m delighted to be a Weleda Arnica ambassador this year (2020/21) and fourth-year running judge on Free-From Skincare Awards.
Fitness is a huge passion of mine. I’ve ran six marathons (including one on Snowdonia) and for the last five years I’ve been training in CrossFit and more recently Olympic lifting, which has helped me build a stronger body and mind. This year I started a diploma in yoga therapy and started blogging about my journey and learnings at relaxdestressyoga.com.
If I’m not working out, working, cooking or eating, you’ll find me rifling through secondhand stores or eBay in search for a vintage gem ✨.
Thanks and enjoy.
