THE SUNDAY SUSTAINABLE BAKERY


On the Menu
Pork and Fennel Sausage Roll
Spinach and Ricotta Parcel
Praline Cheesecake

If you've followed me on Instagram or my blog for a while now, you'll already know me and my boyfriend Adam are HUGE foodies. Adam and I have both worked in hospitality, as a chef, waiter, assistant manager and bartender and it's been a shared love of ours since we started dating.
I blogged a while back about our favourite restaurant in Byron Bay - Republik. This, to our huge despair closed down, but in its place - The Sunday Sustainable Bakery arrived. Everything here is made from scratch, they source locally where possible, organic ingredients and all their food is just so delicious. Their individual pecan pies are so delicious, they leave you craving another and their pork and fennel sausage rolls are full of flavour with crumbling pastry and they also serve some pretty tasty coffee. If you want to find it, it's on Jonson Street and you wont regret a visit.

Benefit's Brow Collection

** I WAS GIFTED ALL OF THESE PRODUCTS FOR REVIEW

Benefit have always been a company that has been so generous towards me. They have always supplied me with their latest releases, so I could share them with you all and I am so grateful. Their new brow range landed at my family home in the UK and my mum forwarded them to me in Australia, so they've had a long journey, but I've finally got my hands on them and I've been trialling them the last few weeks.
The Ka-Brow, is an intensely pigmented brow pomade, then comes with a hidden, fine synthetic brush, to make it easy to fake those hair strokes. The pomade is creamy and pigmented, making it so easy to work with but it sets after a few minutes and stays in place all day long. I like to layer the Gimme Brow on top, to add some texture to my eyebrows. This has small fibres in that cling to your brow hairs and make them look thicker.
The Goof Proof brow pencil, has a spooly on one end, which is brow necessity, and a creamy pencil on the other, it's a little thicker than the one I usually use, but it makes it such a fast process doing your brows. I prefer to use this when I want natural, softer looking eyebrows. If you're a fan of finer pencils, they've recently released a Precisely My Brow eyebrow pencil with a finer tip.
 Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow primer is the last of the products I was sent to try and this is almost like a brow gel. It sets hairs in place and works well with powder layered on top.

My top pick? The Ka-Brow eyebrow pomade which has a built in brush.
