For anybody itching to try the Vegan Sandwich Co’s delicious fare, there’s no need to make the pilgrimage to Dublin’s Smithfield any longer. The plant-based deli have just opened a counter in the Stephen’s Green shopping centre, so whether you’re shopping or strolling, you haven’t far to go for a vegan sambo. Their taco chips are a must-have whether you’re a herbivore or not.

Aid with Inglot

Inglot’s team organising donations to send to Poland

Like many businesses, make-up favourites Inglot have launched a new initiative to help the people of Ukraine. This weekend proceeds from Inglot’s freedom eyeshadow, lipsticks and concealers will be donated to the Red Cross Ukraine appeal and they have a monetary donation function set up on inglot.ie. The brand organised a huge collection last week in Westmeath, which resulted in hundreds of boxes of aid to be sent to Poland. So this weekend is the perfect one to stock up on Inglot essentials and help those in need.

Creme egg x Aoife McNamara

It’s a fashion collaboration worthy of any Fashion Week, as Cadbury’s Creme Eggs have paired up with Irish designer Aoife McNamara. Designed by the sustainable fashion designer, each item has been imaginatively conceived to prevent the wearer from eating their Creme Egg. Fashionistas and Creme Egg enthusiasts could be in with a chance to bag the exclusive attire by entering a social competition @CadburyIreland social channels soon.

The unique collaboration celebrates the ‘How Do You Not Eat Yours’ competition, which has seen a limited number of half milk and half white chocolate Creme Eggs being hidden in stores across the country. Lucky fans who find them just need to resist the urge to eat their winning eggs to claim a cash prize of €2,500.
