Beauty | New Charlotte Tilbury in my makeup bag

If you could see my full lipstick collection you would know I don't need another.. but Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are not like any other. On the rare occasion I am at the counter in Newcastle I decided to choose 2 new ones to add to my collection.

Charlotte Tilbury counter  - Fenwick Newcastle

My favourite Charlotte I own already is 'Sexy Sienna' coral shade from the matte revolution collection so I was looking for something similar but in a different shade. I picked up 'Amazing Grace' (Grace Kelly) which a has a more dark pink tone (Charlotte says Vintage Tea Rose) to it but goes on just as beautiful. I love the square shape but that soon goes to be expected with frequent use.

Matte revolution is my favourite of the 2 kinds of CT lipsticks.

The other new addition I picked up is more for everyday wear called 'Nude Kate' (Kate Moss) which reminds me of my favourite Mac 'Shy Girl' but I love the colour. 

It is a good alternative to the darker nude I already have 'Hepburn Honey' which I think always makes me look older (just being honest) think its because its quite sensible compared to others.

Lipstick minis with ribbons are very good value

This barely there nude is a great staple for your make up bag but is more sheer and lipgloss sticky compared to other k.i.s.s.i.n.g ones i have tried - Bitch Perfect and Penelope Pink - which are both also amazing. They come as part of a 3 gift pack of mini lipstick charms with Marilyn Red which is a superb gift for any lipstick lover and perfect for your handbag.

North East | Ko Sai , Mason + Rye @ Fenwick Newcastle

Just a quick post to tell you about the Fenwick Food Hall which was relaunched in October 2015, it's amazing...full of beautiful cakes, fresh artisan breads plus a gorgeous cafe and patisserie Mason + Rye and a delicious pan asian noodle eatery called Ko Sai.

Here are a few pics of the beautiful cakes I got to take away from Mason + Rye - which has a yellow is a theme which is really lovely and something different. 

There is nothing quite like this cafe available to me locally so it is worth trekking into the city to find these beautiful treats.

Here is a closer look at the cakes, special mention for the pistachio and raspberry cupcake which was just delicious and green.  

There is a huge selection of different flavours of cakes and muffins but they also stock a selection of larger cakes you can buy per slice but they have had different ones each time. 

On a different occasion during December I visited the new noodle bar within the Food Hall with my bestie Miss AJ called Ko Sai, it isn't huge so you may need to queue if you visit at a busy time. Lucky for us people were so busy christmas shopping they didn't have time to eat...

This is what we ordered...we just got so excited by the menu and over ordered but it was so good. 

OMG this chicken bun from the specials board was amazing. I hadn't had a steamed bun before and I thought it would be lovely to try something different.

The chicken was so delicious and tasty - I can't describe what was so amazing about something so simple, but Miss AJ wasn't too happy she didnt' get a bite. Oops

AJ got the Pad Thai and a salmon salad on the side and as we are chicken satay addicts we ordered some of those too.

Let me know what you would recommend from the Food Hall.

Home | Ikea Bar Cart Hack

There is nothing I like more than to entertain and have friends over for food and drinks. So I decided that I would like a destination area in my kitchen now we have some extra space. A trolley that will hold all my nice glasses and drinks was going to be just what I needed.

Last summer I started the search on Pinterest for a 'kitchen trolley' or 'bar cart' and wow there are some amazing ones. You can pay £300+ for a gold wheeled trolley but I didn't need something so fancy. I wanted the concept and it will just evolve over time as I might spray paint it but this is my Bar Cart so far. 

I picked up the Bygel Trolley from Ikea for only £18 in September. You do have to build it yourself like most stuff from ikea but its quick to do.

Once built I organised my trolley with my alcohol collection on the bottom shelf to keep it sturdy - you could put the odd bottle of prosecco on the top shelf but I don't know if I would trust it to put more than that. 

I then hand picked my favourite glasses to put on display and some cool fruit straws and cocktail decs - these are items I would usually hide in a draw or cupboard.

I did buy one extra item that I had wanted for a while which was a cocktail / punch dispenser which was £10 from Matalan.

In the draw I keep a selection of napkins depending on the situation plus extra straws plus some cocktail books for recipes.

Hope you enjoyed this tour of my Bar Cart!

I will be doing a post on my beautiful kitchen table and chairs soon.. just looking for a few more items to finish off the space first.
