Food Friday : St Marys Inn, Morpeth

Hello Lovelies, 

When I heard that the old St Mary's Hospital which was known as The Gateshead Lunatic Asylum was being converted in to luxury housing and a beautiful gastro pub, I jumped at the chance to pop along for a visit.

I had followed the original site's recent past via urban exploration forums like THIS 

Housed in the old Administration building of the hospital, and soon to be the only part left once development is complete, St Mary's stands proud and resplendent in its surroundings. The upstairs boasts beautifully decorated accommodation which we can't wait to try. 

St Mary's Inn is headed up by the team behind Jesmond Dene House.The head chef making the move further north and with the GM having years of experience at the illustrious Cafe 21 in Durham.

Barbour Mens Great Coat Collection

Hello Lovelies, 

A wee while ago Mr Tramp splurge on a beautiful duffel coat from Barbour in Jarrow. 

With only 1 on the rack in his size and priced at a very affordable £90, he snapped it up but we couldn't find it online anywhere.

Within the last week, Barbour have announced their new capsule collection called Great Coat.

Inspired by the original Great Coat – a heavy-duty military jacket designed to offer soldiers warmth and protection – this robust collection presents a legion of men’s waxed, quilted and wool jackets that are authentically styled and equipped to combat the worst winter weather

Whilst the coat is warm and very durable , it is not overly heavy which makes it a great every day coat. A more formal alternative to a waxed or quilted jacket.

Festive red glitter gel nails

Hello Lovelies, 

I have dabbled in at-home gel polish kits before but yesterday I had my nails done with gel polish at a nail salon for the first time.

With it being party season, Christmas AND going away on hols, I thought it was only right to bust out the mega glitter.

This is a ruby red glitter gel from an unknown brand but the camera just doesn't do it justice. I just can't pick up how blingy it is!

In the theme of keeping matchy matchy, I have painted my toenails with a thin layer of OPI Big Apple Red then topped it off with 2 coats of Barry M Red Glitter and the match is perfect!

But I won't show you my feet, don't worry!
