On Friday 16 September 2016, Diva Magazine announced who had made their Inaugural Top 100 DIVA Power List. The list consists of the influential LGBTQI people making a difference and features celebrities, community heroes, business leaders and politicians that inspire the voters.

We're pleased to say that we are placed at number 24 on the list, which is just absolutely amazing!

It's an honour to be surrounded by so many amazing LGBTQI role models, such as Vicky Beeching, Munroe Bergdof and with Olympic Gold medalist boxer Nicola Adams at Number 1! Read more about the Diva Power List here.

Thank you to everyone who nominated us and we'll continue doing what we're doing to the best of our ability!

What Wegan Wore: Autumn/ Fall 2016

4 comments

Now that we're into September, the leaves are starting to change and there's a crispness to the air (interupted by random heat waves in the UK, much to Whitney's dismay).

Whitney loves nothing more than Fall / Autumn and couldn't wait to bust out the Autumnal wardrobe.



Whitney:

Jumper/ sweater: H&M
Watch: Burberry
Sunglasses: Tom Ford
Shoes: Zara
Handbag: Louis Vuitton





What Whitney loving calls my resting moody face... I can't help it!


Megan:

Jumper/ sweater: H&M
(get $10 off with WHITNEYANDMEGAN)
Sunglasses: Raybans
Shoes: Mango 
Earings: Orelia


Also, you may spot some writing under Megan's sweater, and that's because I'm wearing a tank that supports the non-profit SheLift. Created by reality star Sarah Herron, SheLift aims to inspire and empower girls with physical disabilities; to believe that yes maybe you literally can even do that! SheLift is organising a ski trip with Paralympian Amy Purdy, which is set to be amazing. Find out more and how you can get involved here: www.shelift.org

Whitney In The Kitchen: Cream of mushroom soup with white wine

Leave a Comment
As you know, Whitney is a big foodie. She loves cooking it, eating it.. and having foodgasms! Due to the many requests she gets for recipes of various food pics, we have a new section on the blog where Whitney will be sharing her favourite recipes from all of her delicious meals (I can vouch for that!) So take it away Whitney!...

Cream of Mushroom Soup with White Wine & Crispy Garlic Bread:


Serves 2

What you need:

2oz/50g unsalted butter
1 tbsp olive oil
onion, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped (Feel free to do less, I am a garlic lover)
3 mushrooms of your choice (shitake, portobello and chestnut)
Sea salt and pepper
8oz/220g of white wine (I used chardonnay) 
7fl oz/200g of vegetable stock
2fl oz/50ml double cream and/or half- and- half 
3 tsp chopped fresh parsley
Freshly shaved parmesean (as much as you desire)
1 baguette or ciabatta loaf

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 190c/ 375f
2. Slice your bread in to quarters, brush lightly with olive oil and stuff garlic pieces in the bread.
3. Melt the butter and olive oil and/or truffle oil in a  pan and fry the onion and garlic until soft/translucent.
4. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft, then season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
5. Add the white wine and cook to reduce by half.
6. Add the stock and simmer for five minutes, then add the cream and parsley.
7. Let it cook for 10-15 minutes on a medium-low heat. 
8. Place your bread in the oven to crisp.
9. Once taken out of the oven, rub a raw piece of garlic on the bread for extra flavour (if so desired). 
10. Serve soup in in a bowl and garnish with shaving or parmesan, mushrooms and parsley alongside the crispy garlic bread for dipping. (Would go nicely with a drizzle of truffle oil as well)
11. Pairs nicely with a glass of chardonnay (preferably the one cooked in the soup). 

(Disclaimer: This is by far the most delicious and flavourful soups I have ever made and it's well worth making up a batch. Especially for this time of the year, nothing like warm soup and crispy bread on a cool Autumn's evening).
