Travel, Positivity, Kindness & Sustainable Living

Hi! I'm Vadz!

I'm Vadrine, but my friends call me Vadz. Originally from the Seychelles islands, you'll currently find me bouncing about the streets of London.

Alongside living a minimalist and sustainable lifestyle, I've crafted a passion for telling stories, experiencing cultures and eating plenty of food along the way.

Why am I here? 

My journey is to see the world, slowly, fully and sustainably. I believe in the power of everyday magic and appreciation for the little things both within and around us. Read more...

What do I hope to achieve?

This blog is filled with my travel diaries, healthy recipes I enjoy, my journey through minimalism and sustainability and the musings of a 21st century girl living her truth and hopefully inspiring others to do the same. I hope that when you leave any of these pages, you've found something to make you smile, to inspire you, to help you or simply to entertain.

I can't wait to see what life has to offer us next.

Best of Vanilla Vadz
