Camper Van trip to Cornwall

This month we decided to do something a little different and hire a camper van travelling the coast of cornwall for a couple of days and we had so much fun. I have to say a big thank you to Camperhirecornwall for giving us a holiday that will not be forgotten. Agnes is a beautifully restored camper from 1978. The company are super friendly and were happy to help if we needed anything which was lovely and gave us that extra reasurence. We really enjoyed our new little home and were a little lost when we had to give her back. I must say Agnes got a lot of attention and often we would come back to find people were having photos with her which was an experience in itself. 
We also took a trip to the Edenproject, I have been before when I was younger but it was all new for my partner and I could see him taking it all in. They had an amazing dinosaur theme this summer and as I was obsessed with dinosaurs when I was a kid, I was in my element. Although I think if I saw a moving life size T Rex coming for me at the age of six I think I would of cried my eyes out. Most of the children there seemed to take it in their stride though maybe children are braver these days. We had a beautiful dinner at the Italian restaurant in the Mediterranean pod which really felt like you were abroad. 
Over the few days we did a lot of visiting beaches and demolishing fish and chips and possibly the best ice cream in the world. we even went on a little twelve man plane to the Isleofscilly  which was beautiful even if it was a little windy and I was in a tiny summer dress on a boat. I would really recommend having a visit but maybe take a rain coat as I learn't the hard way that you can never trust that ole british weather.

Topshop glow stick review

    Topshop Glowstick in Play up. 
I've heard a lot of good things about topshop makeup and I've seen this product on others and it looks gorgeous so I treated myself. It was a whole ten pounds which is a bit steep for a total drugstore fiend like myself. Don't get me wrong I love high end cosmetics but if I can snatch a bargin I am first one in the que. 
So I took this little beauty home and gave my cheeks a generous swipe or two. My Initial thoughts were that I loved how easy it was to apply, blend it into your skin with your fingers and your done. I was a little disappointed with how subtitle it was on my face though. So if your a deep contour and highlight fan I wouldn't recommend it but for that gentle summer glow this product is really pretty. I find it does show up more with a heavier coverage of foundation though but I am very fair so I find this with most highlight products. 

Have you tried this product? I'd love to know your favorite highlight?
