Footprints Film Festival to show two Veganthused videos
Aug 23 2017


I have several *magnificent* announcements to unveil over coming weeks about upcoming gigs and other events, and this first one is so exciting it made it very difficult for me to get to sleep last night... I found out just before bedtime that my two music videos "Born to Die" and "Mother and Child" will both be screened twice at the Footprints Film Festival this coming Sunday!

Be at Whites Creek Valley Park, Annandale (in Sydney's inner west) at either midday or 1.50pm to see these two pieces in the footprints ecofestival's bicycle-powered cinema! How awesome does that sound?!

Oh - and the festival is a free event too!

Thank you to everyone involved in these projects:

The MAKER kitchen opening inspires a blog post!
Oct 22 2016

MAKER_orange_cakeWell, Winter has come and gone and even half of Spring has passed me by without another blog update here, but the grand opening event for the MAKER Kitchen takeaway coffee and treat bar has brought me out of hibernation!  Here's a bit of a mix of recent Veganthused! and MC Pony happenings, along with certified drool-worthy pics from the food delights available at today's opening.



Lentil as Anything arrives in Sydney!
May 07 2014

Lentil as Anything Curry PlatterYes, the headline says it all – there’s now another item that can be crossed off the list of “things that could make Sydney vegans be jealous of Melbourne”! Tonight was the Opening Night of the Newtown-based Lentil as Anything, a ‘pay-as-you-feel’ enterprise that relies heavily on volunteers and the good side of human nature. This was definitely big enough news to break the almost 5-month drought on this blog!


Mad Hatter Cupcakery & my 15th Veganniversary!

Mad_Hatter_Jess_and_cupcakesMeet Jess van der Walt, the talented baker behind the all-vegan Mad Hatter Cupcakery

Plus, this is my 15th Veganniversary month, so there's some bonus vegan High Tea celebration food shots too...

And so it is February...
Feb 01 2013

I can't possibly be the only one who's astounded that it's February already.  Today's post really just explains the delay (yes, again!) in putting anything up on this site.  You're actually better off checking out the post from World Vegan Day, last November, featuring Leigh Drew's Chocolate Melting Moments.  But, if you truly want to find out what caused the hiatus, by all means click on "Read more".  Just don't say I wasn't honest with you!


Get Veganthusiastic!
Sep 01 2011

Why would I be creating another vegan blog when there are so many awesome ones already? Because there can never be too many efforts to inspire and encourage others to explore and embrace veganism – ie, to get Veganthusiastic!
