This is HungryCityHippy, a Cardiff-based food and lifestyle blog with ‘an eco-friendly twist’.
It’s written by Jane Cook, a 30-something food & drink enthusiast who loves writing about about veggie and organic food, eating a ‘flexitarian‘ diet, and discovering local and sustainable food producers. You can also read more about who I am and why I blog in this interview with The Guardian which I did in 2014.
Since moving back to Wales after spending 5 years living and working in London, my blog has taken a slightly wider approach, and now also features lots of Cardiff-based reviews. In addition, I also write about responsible travel, conservation, eco-tourism, days out in nature and much more.
Back in 2014, I picked up two Wales Blog Awards for Best New Blog and Best Food Blog, which was a lovely surprise!
This year (2017) I was shortlisted as a WWF ‘Earth Hour Hero’ for my efforts to raise awareness about green issues via the blog (see here). I ended up being ‘Highly Commended’ and coming second place in my category which was amazing!
In April 2017 I was also shortlisted for ‘Best Green & Eco Blog’ at the UK Blog Awards – I didn’t take home an award but I did get to party like it was 1999, which is always good!
