Cupcakes, Cookies and Milkshakes in Newcastle

Hey lovelies,

Last weekend I headed up to Newcastle to visit my sister and one of our old family friends, and I just have to show you the amazing little cupcake and milkshake place we found!

After having lunch in Pitcher and Piano on the river, we started to think about where we could get some cakes, and my sister recommended a place her friend had told her about.

If you walk along the river, past the Millenium bridge and up into the centre you'll quickly come across a little place called the Great British Cupcakery, and it's officially my new favourite place for desserts.

The interior is so cute, it has mirrors, flowers and little quotes everywhere

But best of all are the amazing cakes and milkshakes that you can get, so we grabbed a table and ordered ourselves some treats

One look at these milkshakes and you know you're in heaven. My sister had a vanilla milkshake with crème pâtissière and a profiterole on the top, and I had a cookie milkshake, which had nutella all over the jar, freshly whipped cream and cookies all over it.

I couldn't believe my eyes when they were brought to our table, dessert heaven!

We found them impossible to finish so I definitely recommend having one of these for your meal rather than after it! But if you're like us and don't even come close to finishing then they do have paper take out cups so you can finish it later!

If you're ever in Newcastle, it's definitely worth the visit!

Have you ever been to the great british cupcakery? 

Where is your favourite place to go for sweet treats?

Affordable Winter Boots Wishlist

Hey lovelies,

Ankle boots are everywhere you look at the minute, and as you can wear them with everything they really are a staple piece to add to your wardrobe! I've been loving so many lately that I thought i'd share a few of my favourites with you guys!

Usually I stick to my standard black and brown ankle boots for this time of year, and save my lighter and more colourful boots for the spring and autumn months, but this year there's so many nice colourful boots that I might have to invest in some of these this year for a change!

And of course I had to add them all to my wantfeed page, it is getting close to christmas present buying time after all! If you want to visit the stores where I found the shoes then just click the photo source links under each photo! :)

I am in love with these Navy 'Lyndsey' Ankle Boots from Dorothy Perkins at Debenhams, and at £39 they are a bargain. I'm definitely after some of these, still quite dark but they bring a little extra to an outfit rather than my usual black boots. The shiny inside heel is a cute touch too!

I must say though, they are also very beautiful in black, I can't decide which I love more! There's just something so classic about black boots for the winter, and at £39 you can't really go wrong!

I think my favourite colour boots for this season has to be burgundy. There's something so festive about them and they look great with so many different outfits. Plus I do have a lot of different red clothes this winter, so they'll be perfect with those! At £115 these are a bit more expensive, but they are such an amazing colour I had to share.

I think these boots have to be my favourite, but they don't have them in my size! So sad, but they are beautiful so had to be shared, and they are £49 so not outrageous either, I just wish they had them in my size!

The last pair of red boots i'll share haha, can you tell I really want some red boots this year?! But I'm a 42 so it's practically impossible to find any! One day I will find some, but until then i'll just share my favourites with you guys! :) These are £69 so a little bit more than the others, but the gold plated heels are gorgeous! The heels are a little higher on these too, so perfect for the evening with some jeans or a cute dress!

(They also make these in black, and they are equally as gorgeous in black too!)

I've never been a fan of buckles and straps on ankle boots, but surprisingly I actually love these boots. The heels are a bit higher than I usually buy for daytime boots but I think i'd make an exception for these as they are beautiful! A bit more expensive at £72, but if you look after them they'd last a long time! Plus it's almost christmas time so the perfect time to treat yourself! :)

What ankle boots are you loving at the moment?

Do you like to wear coloured boots, or do you stick to the classic black and brown in the winter?

Love, Amylou x
