Veganmania 2016 was a blast! It’s getting bigger and better every year. Just like last year the weather was in favour of us and we got to enjoy vegan food, drinks, cosmetics, fashion and whatnotelse in the sunshine.
During the hot and dry summer of 2015 my balcony garden had ample time to thrive and throw off fruit. While last year I couldn’t wait to get going and planted the first seeds as soon as February, I was
n’t quite as eager lazy this year and only started playing around in mid-March.
Last weekend I attended my first-ever blogger event – Salt and the City 2015 organised by the fantastic ladies-only crew of Sonja (Ginger in the Basement), Caro (Ach du gute Güte), Claudia (Geschmeidige Köstlichkeiten), Sabina (Sinneswunder) und Minnie (Minnies Welt) along with other volunteers.
Given I did not know what to expect I was
slightly tremendously nervous as I boarded the train to Salzburg. However, even before I got off the train I had already met two lovely bloggers who were also going to attend SATC2015 – hi Corinna and Viktoria 🙂 Continue reading Alicioustravels: Salt and the City 2015
Springtime in Vienna cannot be overrated for its beauty and splendour. After yearning for sunshine and warmth during the long, dark months of winter, everything – and everyone – is revived, stretching their limbs towards the sun and soaking up each and every ray of light.

Finally, finally was I able to replant all my precious seedlings into the containers which will serve as their permanent homes all through summer (and hopefully well into autumn). Continue reading Aliciouslife: My Balcony Garden – Getting serious
Not only are the hills alive with the sound of music, right now and for most of spring and summer the meadows are also bright yellow with the heads of dandelions, flowers that are the colour of the sun and provide us with beautiful honey. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Dandelion honey
Last weekend a friend from Cameroon came to visit with her gorgeous little son and we decided to make a walk around springtime Schönbrunn gardens her first impression of Vienna. It was such a beautiful day and warm enough to not need a jacket. Continue reading Aliciouslife: A walk in the park
These are the reasons there wasn’t a Sunday post as usual: Mr A celebrated his birthday with a brunch party that happened to take place mostly on our balcony due to the absolutely gorgeous spring day. As requested by him (could I be any prouder? I could not), all dishes were vegan. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Mr A’s vegan birthday party
Last Friday was my birthday and I basically spent the whole weekend celebrating it (which explains why there was no Sunday post last week). In fact, I have yet to meet some of my closest friends so the partying will continue until at least Easter (by which time we’ll already be preparing for Mr A’s birthday). Continue reading Aliciouslife: My birthday weekend
Along with the first flowers telling us that winter is over and, yes, spring is finally here, fresh leaves of wild garlic have been featuring on Instagram for the last week. For a lover of all things garlic like myself this meant that wild garlic had to be found and harvested asap. Because I’m a nice person (yes, that’s fishing for compliments here) I’ll tell you my favourite spots to find it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild Garlic
