Happy Valentines Lovers!
If you want to play things a little more low-key, or rank up the romance and intimacy, a thoughtfully planned picnic never fails. Whether it's to the beach, a park or something further afield, nothing says I love you like a curated spread of his/her favourite treats, laid out on a blanket, surrounded by nature. To make your job easier, Broadsheet have put together a list of Melbourne's best inner-city picnic spots. Check it out here.
One of our other favourite humans, Emily Hazell, the mastermind behind Melbourne's original plant-based cafe, Seratonin Eatery, is hosting a couple of events for Valentine's lovers.
First up is a beautifully prepared picnic. If you're time-poor mid-week and don't have time to prepare your own, Serotonin has you sorted. Simply choose your time, book a basket, and Serotonin Eatery will do the rest - laying out a beautiful plant-based spread in the idyllic park opposite the cafe.
For those wanting something a little more formal, but just as delicious, Serotonin is hosting an extravagant three-course plant-based dinner, including their signature Sero-tini cocktail.
If you want to show your love with a gift, we encourage everyone to give consciously this Valentine's Day. Giving a gift for the sake of it is simply consumerism gone mad. Instead, try thinking about what your significant other really needs, what they would really appreciate and what will happen to the gift at the end of its life.
If you're stuck, our range of eco lifestyle products is a great place to start. Oh, and did we mention we've just released our brand-new Bathroom Essentials Kit ft. a year's supply of toothbrushes and our best-selling, flying off the shelves, reusable safety razor in your choice of Matte Gold or Matte Black? Because, guys and gals, if there was ever a day to have minty fresh breath and silky smooth skin, this Thursday the 14th would be it! ;)
On the other hand, if you don't buy in to the commercial side of Valentine's day, stay tuned because next week we have something special coming your way. Coming in hot to your inbox and the blog is the most awesome, totally 100% vegan, nutrient packed banana pancake recipe of all time (or at least we think so). It's our weekend staple and we both get serious withdrawal symptoms if we go without.
