Too Faced Candlelight 'Rosey Glow' | Review

I consider highlighter to be one of my 'basic' products. As in, I'll do a coat of mascara, some concealer, and highlighter if I'm just running to the shops for some emergency jaffa cakes (yes, that is a real thing).
However, being super pale means that I find it really difficult to find a highlighter that...well, highlights. Besides which, I'm a sucker for sparkle, so I tend to go for the most obnoxious glittery ones I can find.
I'd been umm-ing and ahh-ing over the Too Faced Candlelight Glow in 'Rosey Glow' online for about 2 weeks when I finally came across it in a Sephora a few months ago, and was instantly captivated as I swatched it on my hand.
As you can (hopefully!) see in the above pictures, the Candlelight palette is a duo, and comes with a frosted champagne shade, as well as a rosy pink shade. I always opt to swirl my brush around the palette to get a bit of a warmer glow, but the champagne shade works really well as an eyebrow highlighter on its own, too.
The formula is creamy, so easily blendable, but also has some serious staying power - I never reapply, and stay sparkly all day. A word to the wise, though: it's not a subtle option, in the slightest, so if understated contouring is your kind of thing, Candlelight Glow might not be for you.
If you are a glitter-fiend/wannabe mermaid, however, go grab it, now! I've had my palette in my every day make up bag for nearly a year and it's only just hit pan, so you won't be sorry, despite the price tag. 
Too Faced Candle Light Glow in 'Rosey Glow' has an RRP of £25, and is available from Selfridges, here.

How to Survive your First Holiday with Friends | Travel

A holiday with friends can be one of the best, or worst, experiences of your travelling life, depending on how you play it. Some of it's down to luck - do you ever really know someone until you've shared a hotel room with them for 10 days in the stifling heat, with crappy dance music blasting you from the bar downstairs? No, probably not.
But, there are a few sure-fire ways to get the best out of your trip, regardless, and I'm sharing them over on Sophie's blog, today, whilst she's off on her trip of a lifetime.
Head to my guest post, here, for my tips, and be sure to leave your own!
