In a nutshell, HungryCityHippy is a Cardiff-based food and lifestyle blog with ‘an eco-friendly twist’.
That means that you’ll often find me writing about veggie food, why I think it’s important to eat organic, and why I eat a ‘flexitarian’ diet, plus lots of love for local, sustainable food producers, eco-tourism, conservation, green travels, days out in nature – the list goes on!
Since moving back to Wales after 5 years in London, the blog has taken a slightly wider approach, as I have become fascinated by the changes and developments to the food & drink scene in my home city of Cardiff.
As a result, the blog has slowly become much more focused on the ever expanding Cardiff food scene, and now I love writing it even more!
If my readers come for the restaurant reviews and stay for the sustainability chat, who am I to argue? ?
Back in 2014, I also picked up two Wales Blog Awards for Best New Blog and Best Food Blog, which was a lovely surprise!
This year 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!
I have also been shortlisted for ‘Best Green & Eco Blog’ at the UK Blog Awards. Fingers crossed for April.
