Crust Liverpool

Eat your crust!!! 

Happy Sunday everyone! 

Last week, I was invited down to dine at Crust, which is based on Bold Street in Liverpool. I have never ate there before so was delighted when I received the invitation, as I have heard so many amazing reviews! 

So Friday evening came and my partner and I got ready for our date night and headed down to Crust.
On arrival, we where greeted by the manager of Crust who was so welcoming. He took us over to the bar where we started our evening with a drink. There was so many drinks available on the menu, that me being the indecisive person I am, let my partner choose a cocktail for me. I ended up having the 'Pornstar Martini', which came with a shot of prosecco! Whilst Neil opted for the 'Krombacher Pils Bier'.

Shortly after we received our drinks, we where taken to our table by a lovely waiter called Pepe. He ran through the menu before leaving us to get settled in. The atmosphere in Crust was a mix of excitement and chill. Looking through the menu, we decided to go for two different dishes and share. 

For starters, we opted for garlic bread, 'Prawns' and 'Prosciutto Di Parma'. Wow! When the starters arrived, I wondered how we were ever going to fit our mains in! The garlic Bread was warm, doughy and the garlic was just right! We are big garlic lovers so the more garlic the better. The Prawns where served in garlic butter, and came on Tuscan bread with Cherry tomatoes. They where delicious! The prawns and the garlic worked so well with the tang of the tomato and crisp of the Tuscan bread. Lastly, The 'Prosciutto Di Parma' came out with three generous slices of parma ham, and a huge serving of Buffalo Mozzarella. Now, I am not usually a fan of Mozzarella but this tasted so good! 



By this point, we needed a breather, so we had a few minutes break before settling on our mains. I have heard so many good things about Crust's 'black dough' so I definitely wanted a main with that included. I eventually, with a lot of back and forth, decided on the 'Black Volcano'. 
'Black Vulcano 9.50

Using a new vegetable black dough to create this volcano-shaped calzone with tomato, for di latte mozzarella, cooked ham, mushrooms & spinach'
Neil opted for the five grain base Picante;
Piccante 8.00
Tomato, fior di latte mozzarella, chicken breast marinated in our own spicy sauce, jalapeño & sweetcorn 


Our eyes were most certainly too big for our stomachs! As the mains arrived, what got put down in front of me, can only be described as a home made pizza volcano. IT. WAS HUGE! As soon as I took a bite, the different flavours erupted in my mouth, making my taste buds dance! The flavours worked well however the black dough was just delicious. It had almost a sweet taste to it? Usually I find myself leaving the crusts on pizza, but I was reaching for more with this! Neil's pizza came out and looked so fresh and colourful! With a thin five grain base, your taste buds got more flavour from the topping. I sometimes find with thick pizza bases, you loose the flavour of the actual pizza topping, which is why this was a big win! Of course, we done our usual of swapping dishes but we could not finish them. 

On finishing with our stomachs twice the size, our waiter boxed the remains of our Pizza up for us to take home, which was a lovely surprise! 

If you haven't been to Crust yet, then you need to head down there! With a buzzing atmosphere, friendly staff and the most delicious food, what are you waiting for? Oh! They do Deliveroo too!

Multi-masking?



Good Evening/Morning... 
Okay so it may be evening to some and morning to others so a big hellooo & thank you for stopping by to read today's post. 

I recently received the new L'Oreal clay face masks, through bzzagent and boy did they not disappoint! As previously mentioned on my blog, I suffer with the worst skin ever! If it's not extremely dry, its full of blemishes. So I couldn't wait to try these masks out! 

Multi-masking is all about using different masks on different parts of your face. There is no rule to multi-masking, we know our own skin best right? 

Lets start with the Detox mask...my favourite The detox mask, is black texture gloop. There is no pretty way to describe it. This mask is enriched with black charcoal which apparently draws out any impurities you may have. Once applied and left to work its magic, the thick, creamy texture works right into your pores helps detoxify your skin. I tend to use this where I have blackheads or quite big pores, to draw anything out of my skin. The scent to this mask is just beautiful, it reminds me or the outdoors and so earthly! 

Then we have the Glow mask which contains Red Algae which helps brighten the skin. his mask is a lot thinner than the Detox. The colour is a beautiful red and the mask if full of fine milled apricot seeds which gives you a good exfoliating to the skin, leaving it glowing. I apply this to my cheek area as I am after a dewy glowy look so hopefully this will help! 

Lastly we have the Purity mask. This mask is full of purifying properties from Eucalyptus extract. Again, this mask is a creamy texture which works deep into your pores. It help matte out your skin and take away that oil look, without your skin drying out. I apply this to areas where I tend to get oily skin, under my nose and forehead. 

     
 I have been using these masks for about six weeks now and still have a lot left in the jars. The difference in my skin is extraordinary! My face feels so much softer and seems to have a new glow about it! Whenever I have a breakout, I reach for these masks and they never disappoint

I tend to switch up my multi-masking every two weeks but I find this way works best


I had to include this picture as It is as though I am smiling at a college photographer for my pass! haha 
 

Have you tried multi-masking? 
I'd love to know your thoughts! 

As always, much love...
