The Handmade Bakery at Slaithwaite

This is where I wish I was right now, spending my Saturday morning surrounded by family eating yummy bakery items. Instead I am having a much needed lie in....

Finding a cafe I love where the coffee is good and the food is presented perfectly is harder than you think. I spend my weekends in either Yorkshire or in County Durham so I can always be on the look out for a new favourite. 

The handmade bakery, Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire. 

My brother and his family discovered this cafe and I have been a couple of times with them over the last few years. 

It is located down by the canal in Slaithwaite and if the weather is nice you can sit outside. 

However, last Sunday is was raining cats and dogs so luckily my brother had got there before me and reserved us a seat, it was pretty busy in there at 10.30am on a Sunday morning.

There isn't loads of tables so you might need to wait or share with some other customers. It is a really lovely place to be and the staff are very warm and friendly.

As soon as you walk in the entrance you are welcomed by the fragrance of freshly baked bread and goodies, then everything is out on display on the counter. 

Look at all these beautiful handmade breads with prices mostly around the £3 mark. There is no guarantee what breads will be available when you pop in, but I am sure you would find something you would like. 

I will take them all.

Did I mention the beautiful pastries? 

Look at this yummy 'pulli' cinnamon bun - I got this to take away as there was only a couple left, and I knew there wouldn't be any by the time I was leaving after brunch. Shhh it's in my freezer for this Sunday...

There isn't a menu on table,  but there is a board behind the counter with the items available on that day. 

Between us we tried 3 different dishes - 2 orders of Mushrooms on Toast, 2 Bacon Sandwich and my Cinnamon Toast with Apple Jelly and Creme Fraiche. 

Long tables are perfect for family time 
My parents and brother

Everyone really enjoyed their food, my brother said he had food envy when mine arrived, but there was no way I was trading for his half demolished mushrooms on toast. More excuses to go back again soon.

Just as we were leaving the breakfast menu was over and lunch had arrived, lots of cakes, flapjack and some delicious savoury cheese & onion rolls had just arrived and were selling fast! My nephew wasn't leaving without one.

The photos speak for themselves, this really is what I expect from bespoke and local cafe. Some might think I have high standards, but there is something special about finding the perfect instagramable coffee and foods. 

I can highly recommend visiting the bakery/ cafe - they even do organised cookery classes and you can find out more about those on their website.

Beauty | VB x Estee Lauder - Chilean Sunset Lipstick

Since my last post on Double Wear, the Victoria Beckham A/W collection has landed locally at Fenwick, Newcastle! Not just makeup either clothes, handbags and sunglasses too! I wasn't expecting to make a purchase so this lipstick post is a little unplanned.

It's been months in the pipeline, it's been talked about worldwide, and if you didn't know already - Victoria Beckham has done a makeup collaboration with Estee Lauder. 

When I think about all the things Victoria is famous for, I don't ever remember thinking...ooh I love Victoria's lipstick or Mascara. But I do know her for flawlessness and perfection. 

Victoria has the ability to turn her hand to anything and can reinvent her image at a drop of a hat but always seems to get it right. 

I took a closer look at some of the makeup on Saturday after swooning over all the clothing and accessories when the red lipstick caught my eye!

The sales assistant offered for me to try it on and I wouldn't usually but my friends said.. try it, you will regret it. So before I knew it I was trying the lipstick on! It was dangerous place to be..I always look at the price tag before I try clothing on.

After walking round the store for a little while, looking in a few mirrors, I went back to the counter to purchase. 

Maybe it was the story of the size of the lipstick that sold it to me.. 'small enough to put in your clutch bag'.

Or maybe it was it was the perfect orangey red 'Chilean Sunset' I had been looking for but I purchased and I LOVE it! 

It goes on so nicely, stays put and that gold casing is just beautiful.

I decided I needed a lipliner to go with it, so I popped to Boots next door and picked up the perfect shade from NYX in 'Summer Tease'. 

AND....if you are not wanting to spend lots but you love the colour this Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick from Maybelline in 'Orange Shot' is a pretty good dupe! It's amazing what you find in your makeup draw.
