Sweet end to (vegan) Sweet

Sometimes we see the end of things like a bitter end but this is not the case. Since baby boy was born I decided to not take orders to Sweet for a few months to dedicate myself 100% to him and I was happy about that. And then life gave me a few surprises which took me to a decision: it is the end of Sweet in Dublin.

I'm not saying I won't bake sweet treats anymore but I have no idea about when I'll be able to get back on taking orders and making other vegans happier. Sweet last 3 years and I'm very happy about all the cakes and cupcakes I've baked but life now has other plans to me and my family.

I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who ordered from me, enjoyed my cakes and spread the world about Sweet all this time. It was a pleasure and I'm happy that I could find in vegan baking something great and inspiring to do here in Ireland.

We are the vegans

Posted this at my Facebook page and thought it was worth it to share also here.

Making your house cleaner

Here I am after many weeks of my last post. It's not that as a mother of a 2 months baby boy I don't have time to write here, it's just that it's still being hard to organize my time. I should be sleeping when baby sleeps (doesn't happen at all expect for the nights). And now that I'm recovered from the emergency c-section I have tons of things to do at home too.

I am still not cooking that much and making a good use of all the pre-made meals I can find in Dublin. And I'm extremely grateful for all my friends that are visiting us and bringing us food or cooking here, it's the best help we can get. But today I won't write about vegan food but about vegan cleaning products. I always think that cruelty-free and vegan house products and personal care products are harder to find than vegan food. And I'm always trying everything I can find in the market. So today I'm doing some free publicity for Bio-D, an UK company.

We've being using their product for a few months now and I'm really happy with them. Quality products with a decent price. I'm using even their Nappy Fresh for baby dirty clothes and it's great.

In Dublin it's possible to find their products at Nourish (Wicklow Street). And if they don't have something you want on stock you can ask the staff there and they will order.

Which are your favourite house cleaning products?
