Hi guys! So ive been thinking what to write about for my 3rd post on this blog. So im going to share my experience at Newcastle based restaurant St.Sushi.

Firstly, let me get this off my chest... I love this place! I really cant fault this restaurant. About a year ago a friend of mine recommended me to here after having poor service at another sushi place in Newcastle. So after eating there for the 1st time I couldn't thank my friend enough!

The waitresses at St.Sushi are super attentive and polite. For me thats a deal breaker for me when eating out. It feels like a very authentic Japanese restaurant and im pretty sure its a family business.

The food here is mega delicious! My favourite thing to order is a salmon teriyaki bento box with a side order of salmon and avocado ISO rolls. The Benton box includs 2 grilled salmon steak portions in a teriyaki sauce. Its to die for! There is also 2 small vegetarian rolls wrapped with seaweed and sticky rice and picked vegetables in the centre. A healthy portion of sticky rice, 2 slices of salmon sashimi and 2 salmon and sticky rice portions finish off the meal!

I can only describe the dish as fresh and delicious! It has so much taste in comparison to other places I have tried. They do also serve a range of cooked meals, so if you're not into the whole raw fish thing you can still have a yummy meal here!

And the best part about this place is they do delivery!! For delivery you must spend 15 pound or more but it is so worth it. Plus, I'd rather eat a box of sushi than a greasy take away.... and if you sign up to their newsletter, they send you offers and discounts not available for normal customers.

Maskitec Cosmetics Review

So quite recently a fellow creative and good friend of mine started producing a range of lip balms! I know, quite adventurous, right?! I have know of Kerry Liddell for some time now having modelled one of her collections, which she had designed & developed prints and produced 2 women's tailored suits. They are beautiful by the way! So through numerous impromptu catch ups and photo shoots I come to love Kerry and find out more about her creative side.

So as I said, she developed a range a juicy lip balms. I have to say they are utterly delicious! I am rather fussy about what balms and treatments/products I use on my lips as I find a lot of high street products dry them out. However Maskitec lip balms are a stunning exception!

I recently purchased 2 x 10ml lip balms One in the Sherbet Fizz flavour and the other was Firebox Cherry. The Sherbet Fizz is my favourite balm out of these 2. Firstly, I have to comment on the packaging because I am a sucker for beautifully presented products. The lip balms come in small silver pots (the 10ml are perfect for travelling with) and they are branded with a label which is colour coordinated in accordance to flavour. The sherbet is pink and the cherry is red. So I unscrew the lids and find the sherbet fizz to be a beautiful shade of pink with a glisten to it.... Is that glitter I see?! Ok, now I'm in love! I'm not a huge glitter fan but it ads the perfect sheen and sparkle to your lips! And as for the cherry flavour, it is a perfect tiny to add some colour to your look. I took tem on holiday earlier on this year. They are great paired with Kayleigh Falcus jewellery. Here's some snaps...

You can purchase Kerr's lip balms via her Facebook page. I cannot wait to see her winter collection!!
