R PLACE ~ doughnuts!

I think realistically this is the most exciting blog opportunity to date. I’m so excited to be writing this, a food review!! on a pop up café!! EXCITING, right!? So the pop up café in question is called ‘R Place’ it’s ran by two lovely ladies that became friends over their love of rock music & cuppa teas, perfect! They went from a permanent location in Newcastle to using a converted (very cool) Bedford CF truck, and basically the pop up wherever you want them, any events you can think of! They also do home delivery to Newcastle and surrounding areas!

The menu consists of doughnuts & drink, I mean that is bloody perfect menu! In all honesty I’ve never quite tasted doughnuts as good in my life (.. and I’ve tried a lot). Now I’ve been very blessed to choose 4 doughnut (from the huge list) to try out and tell me opinions on, so here I am, let’s get chatting about doughnuts!

One of my favourite combinations in the world is bacon with pancakes so when I noticed a maple bacon doughnut on the menu, I had to choose, and WOW, oh my goodness, what a taste sensation, it’s the best thing I’ve put in my mouth if I’m honest, I’d be happy with a box of 24, honestly YUM. ps. look how crispy the bacon is, gosh my favourite!!!

Next one of my second favourite food combos is chocolate orange, again this was just a delight, a delicious delight, the perfect amount of chocolate and orange, just so divine. The orange zest is on the top, but also through the doughnut! Also the doughnuts themselves aren’t heavy or stodgy, you know you get some like that, these are so light and just wow. (can you tell I’m a fan..)

I used to always eat the rhubarb and custard sweeties, and thought I better just choose this to see what rhubarb and custard tasted like in doughnut form. This had huge chunks of rhubarb which had been caramelised on which is fab and vanilla custard icing on, big yum from me!

When you get me into autumn / winter I’m always thinking about black forest hot chocolates, you know seasonal. Yes you better believe they have a black forest meringue doughnut!! This has lemon in the doughnut it’s self, lovely fruity icing and mini meringues, how blooming cute, plus how pleasing to the eye!?

I mean overall I’m a little obsessed, I know where I’ll be going when I want a doughnut or 12. The range that they do is literally incredible, they’ll have something for everyone I’m absolutely sure as there’s over 40 flavours!

I’ll leave a few of their links so you can have a little look for yourselves. (you so should) Website ; Instagram ; Facebook. If you want to order the doughnuts/drinks to your home just give them an email ~ itsrplace@hotmail.co.uk ~ they can give you a menu & prices from there!

Just want to finish with a huge thank you to the ladies at R Place for bringing me these doughnuts yesterday, I love them of course and I’m going to rave about constantly haha!

seksy embrace ; fragrance review!

I love wearing a perfume daily, I feel like it’s the final piece of your outfit, right!? It’s what most people notice on you, and it’s something that’s very individual.

Recently the brand Seksy have launched a new fragrance collection, called Prism Parfums, Seksy themselves have collaborated with both Time Products, and Swarovski to make the three perfumes happen. The three signature fragrances are designed to embody female tastes across the globe. 

I chose the Seksy Embrace scent, as it sounded most up my street out of the three, and plus, it’s orange, well more peach, but anything warmed toned I love. ( Choosing a perfume because of it’s colour, ok Sarah, you do you ). Anyway it’s hard to describe a scent isn’t it, why isn’t someone inventing smell through screens?! Getting away from the point.. Seksy Embrace is described as floral, feminine, enchanting, and seductive. It has top notes of orange blossom, blackcurrant and pear. The heart is rich with iris, jasmine and patchouli. It’s also a little musky with vanilla, Tonka bean and praline to create a deep and opulent finish. ( !! totally didn’t read that from a sheet !! ). In my words, basically a delight, I’d say it’s more for me something I’ll wear in the coming Autumn months rather than summer, but I’ve been loving it, it’s hard to choose a scent without smelling, but I chose goooood!

The packaging, or should I say the bottle, we must chat about that next, it’s amazing, it’s a 12 sided glass bottle, that has a lil crystal at the top, stunning! Also has a crystal that you can pop of and use as a charm, or can leave on the bottle! It’s defiantly an easy size / shape to pop in your handbag, which is always HANDY ( ! lol ! ).

Defiantly have a look at the other two fragrances over on the Seksy beauty website ~here~. And here is a lil link to Seksy Embrace ( ! my fave ! ), ~here~!

*the products mentioned in this post have been sent to me for free, but all my opinions are my own*
