Earlier this month, on one of my many trips to New York this break, Taylor dragged me to a bakery.
She has recently made the decision to switch over her diet to become a fully fledged vegan and her options are limited in terms of the sweets department. When she'd told me that she had found a gluten free vegan bakery, I knew that we were going to be making a special stop on our trip. 

Founded by Erin McKenna, Babycakes, is a completely gluten-free, refined sugar-free, wheat free, soy-free, egg-free, dairy-free (!!!), kosher, 100% completely vegan bakery...AND ITS PINK!

The VERDICT: Babycakes is a total slam dunk. To be completely honest, I was a bit wary when I first arrived...I mean no dairy, no refined sugars, no eggs...what's left?! Haha, no but the cupcakes themselves blew me away. I had a red velvet (obviously) and I will say that it is quite a tasty substitute for the real deal. Taylor even let me have a nibble of her vanilla and I was converted. Everything from the music playing to the uniforms the two lovely ladies working behind the counter had on really set the tone for the experience. 

If you are interested and want to take a trip to the bakery, be sure to check out the Babycakes website. If you are not in the New York area and are lusting for some vegan goodness, fret not! They have two other locations in Los Angeles and Orlando.

Just a little life update: I still am posting on this blog, but currently I am dividing my time between school and work. You can catch me between posts on twitter and Instagram. If that isn't enough of me for you, you can always stalk me on tumblr: . I am always on there...even when I shouldn't be (shhhh don't tell my professors or my boss.)  My tumblog mainly consists of clothing I am lusting after, neon signs, and Beyonce. Enjoy. x
