Let There Be Crumbs: Sunderland Roker hotel

Last week I was invited to the press evening of the newly launched Let there be crumbs tearoom which opens officially 29th May. It is partnering with Sunderland's Roker Hotel. The new menu includes cakes, sandwiches, breakfasts and ice creams.

The Cakes

Andrew has done an amazing job with the cakes he has created as they not only look good but they taste amazing. My favourite cake of the night was the rocky road, the white chocolate was my favourite. Whatever cake you prefer whether it be a cheesecake, chocolate cake etc Let there be crumbs has you covered, To cater for all your cake needs, the hardest decision is deciding which one to try first.

Goody Bag

Trying out cake for a few hours is ideal but then we got a goody bag, perfect way to end a good night.

Rocky Road (we got asked what cake was our favourite to take samples of it home)

I would highly recommend visiting  Let there be crumbs as the cakes do taste amazing. I'm not a huge cake person but I really enjoyed these cakes. The cakes are really good value and worth the money. When I saw the prices I was surprised as I expected them to cost a lot more, considering how good they tasted and the quality.

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…

When my packaged arrived I was really happy to see what was in the box. When I opened my parcel I wasn't disappointed as each of these products look amazing.

The powder puff is latex free
Before I use this sponge I dampen it as foundation, concealer blends out better when doing so.
To create the flawless finish I bounce the sponge off my skin it also stops y…
