Sunderland Restaurant week

Last night I was lucky enough to attend a preview of some of the restaurants participating in Sunderland's restaurant week. This is in partnership with Sunderland Experience (BID).
Restaurant week is a good time to try out new restaurants that you may have not considered otherwise. As it's restaurant week those participating have really affordable offers on that vary between £5-£20. With over 50 restaurants taking part there really is something for everyone (even for fussy myself)

When does Sunderland restaurant week start?
It starts 9th September for 1 week.

Benefits of restaurant week
Promotes the local area
Great chance for Sunderland restaurants to show what they have on offer
A choice of 2-3 course meals for affordable prices
To try out places you might have not even heard of before

The Prosecco Bar
Where is the Prosecco bar located?
Mowbray Park Centre, Borough

My opinion
This is the first prosecco bar in Sunderland to be offering a wide selections of wines. Here we sampled some of the prosecco available and nibbles. If you are a prosecco fan I would highly recommend this place. Not only for the wide selection of prosecco but for the relaxed and luxury interior setting. The lounge itself is very classy and done to a high quality standard. It's like a high end bar in London brought directly to Sunderland. In addition to this, they also offer spirits and cocktails to cater for a wider clientele.

It was also really nice to see Amy and Gemma again, it's always really nice to have a catch up with other local North East bloggers.

Asiana Fusion Restaurant

Where is Asiana Fusion located?
Echo 24 Building, West Wear

My opinion
To be completely honest I am not a huge fan of Asian food but Asiana did surprise me (in a good way) with the starters available. My top recommendation from the starter platter is the chicken stick. The owner shared his reasoning's behind certain dishes and how he has managed to create those traditional flavours. The views just add to the overall experience as the views are stunning of the river wear. The staff are lovely and friendly, they make sure you are happy with everything etc.

The New Tipi
Port of Call

Where is the New Tipi by Port of Call located?
Park Lane

My opinion
Out of all the places we visited this is my favourite place. This is where we had our main meals, there was a big selection for us to try. My favourite things were the chicken burger and the beef burger. They tasted amazing! Whilst we were there we also tried some of the cocktails available. I highly recommend the Tipi to anyone as you won't be disappointed. I will be returning in the future. The Tipi restaurant is 'my kind' of restaurant for food aka the fussy eater, that still likes flavoursome food. 

Tea and Trinkets

Where is Serendipity Tea and Trinkets located?
Frederick Street

My opinion
I was really excited to visit here! Who doesn't love tea and cakes? For Mothers Day I tried to book up here but it was fully booked. Serrendipity didn't disappoint, the interior is vintage, quirky and pretty. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are really friendly. The cakes tasted amazing! If you are wanting to visit a Tea Room I highly recommend visiting here.

Finally a mention to Station Taxi's
Station Taxi's kindly transported us to each restaurant as it saved us walking 15 minutes between each one. I have used Station Taxi's for years and the taxi's are always reliable and affordable.

My overall opinion about Sunderland Restaurant week
Overall, I am really impressed with the restaurants Sunderland has to offer. There really is something for everyone. Restaurant week is a good time to try out new places at affordable prices. You might just discover places that you wouldn't normally visit.

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.

In that blog post I reviewed W7 prime and glow illuminating primer, Genius feather light foundation, Kiss me lip plumping gloss and cheeky chap multi blush. W7 do not test on animals.
W7 Powder Puff When I saw this in the box I was really excited as I've wanted to try this for a while. Also it is pink which I love as pink is my favourite colour.
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…
