Ella is, quite simply, an awesome chick. I came across her Instagram and immediately felt a really strong connection to her so popped her an email. She soon replied, and next thing I knew, we were hanging out in my living room with my toddler Jack, and pottering in the garden centre down my road all the while sharing our life philosophies. Ella is passionate about veganism, sustainable fashion, conscious living, travel and much more. She is one of a kind – watch this space, world!

1. What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The idea of a huge, cold, banana smoothie
2. whats the first thing you do once you are up?
Drink a big glass of water with squeezed lemon in it, put on some music and then get smoothie making!
3. Tea or coffee or ‘erb?
‘Errbbbbbb all the way. Forever a herbal tea girl. Loving Pukka teas at the moment!
4. Fry up or healthy?
A vegan fry up consists of beans, spinach, mushrooms, rye bread and avocado so is pretty healthy! But I’m a big one for starting the day raw!
5. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
I recently found vegan pain o chocolate! (Spellings?!) and let’s just say a few rounds of those have been in and out of my oven recently.
6. When are you happiest?
When I’m in nature. Being outside, swimming in the water, bathing in the sun, lying on warm sand, eating fruit and talking about “bigger things” with friends would be an Ideal day for me.
7. What makes you angry?
I’m a pretty mellow person in terms of anger… My anger comes out as sadness.. But I suppose I’d say, thoughtlessness, betrayal and any kind of bullying or making someone feel lesser.
8. In the last year you have become…
More confident in who I am!
9. If you can pass one piece of advice on to your former self, what would it be?
Just to trust that everything that I dream about is already happening and in motion. If I could tell myself where I am in life now and what’s happening I wouldn’t believe it.. And that happens every year! Just trust! And be free! And keep being ballsy.
10. And finally, crunchy or smooth? (peanut butter)
