When we went on the hunt for organisations to support, a key criteria for us was that they made an impact in the mental health space.  This is because it is something that is very close to home, so to speak.  

In 2016, Andy reached a point where he simply wasn't coping.  He was going to work (in a pastoral role) and competently meeting expectations, but in doing so had dismissed many of his feelings and the inner turmoil that was plaguing him.

HAVING OUR CAKE AND EATING IT TOO

HAVING OUR CAKE AND EATING IT TOO

We love glamour and glitz and a bit of sparkle, but we also love the planet and look to be as sustainable as we can with what we do at Sugar Lips.

We are stoked to be one of the 2021 finalists of the Girls in Business Awards in the 'Excellence in Sustainability'.

When Beks started Sugar Lips she knew she wanted to do it differently.  So many sprinkles from around the world come in plastic bottles, many of which aren't even recyclable. So from the get-go we have used home-compostable pouches for our sprinkles.

RECIPE: SPRINKLE FUNFETTI CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Hey sprinkle lovers!  We're back with the ultimate easy, but delicious, sprinkle chocolate chip cookie recipe we're loving at the moment. It's been a much needed isolation baking treat here in lockdown. Seriously, this is the cookie recipe you need right now! 

OK, so other recipes that call for creaming butter, etc give pretty great results, but right now we're all about quick, easy, one bowl recipes that don't require us to get out an electric mixer. Heck, you can make these with a toddler clinging onto your leg whinging and moaning (tested and proved) or supervise your kids making them without having a complete meltdown!
