Take it all and run with it...

Hi everyone, I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend, and enjoy your Labor Day weekend to any US readers. I have spent a wonderful weekend visiting my beautiful cousin and her children in Yorkshire. After a somewhat challenging journey due to a road being closed, I arrived on Saturday afternoon.
After catching up on our news we headed to the local pub, The Fairway in Barnsley, for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was delicious, and I had Scampi and Chips with a chilled glass of Pinot Grigio. My cousin had a chicken dish and there was Steak for the boys and Sausage and Mash for the little one. The peppercorn sauce served with the steak was so yummy that I had some of it with my chips too!  We had a lovely meal and I could not resist ordering a Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert! Here is what I wore on the last day of my trip:




Jeans, top, kimono and shoes- all Primark
Bag- Forever 21
Necklace- H&M


The journey to Yorkshire
The Fairway Pub in Barnsley 

 Lunch at the pub

After the amazing meal, it was time for a lovely walk in the sunshine around Newmillerdam country park in Wakefield. There was a beautiful lake, with all manner of ducks, geese and swans waiting to be fed some bread. The scenery was so peaceful, and the walk was just what we all needed after a few hours in the pub.

Those were just a few of the highlights of the Saturday, and then on Sunday my amazingly talented singer-songwriter cousin Jack performed us an acoustic one hour set in the kitchen over breakfast. It was a real treat because his voice and guitar playing are incredible and he is this talented at just 15 years old!

After that we relaxed for a few hours, then headed to Pizza Hut for lunch! I had not been there for ages and oh my goodness, the cheesy bites pizza is just a revelation! 






Oh my, what amazing pizza!

Me with my lovely cousin Jack and his equally lovely friend Kurt who joined us for lunch too.


I have had such a wonderful time in Yorkshire everyone, I cannot say enough how lovely it is to go away for the weekend. It does not have to be an expensive trip,  just a couple of days visiting family is amazing fun, and without sounding too much like a Hallmark card, it is lovely to make memories together! Thank you so much to my cousin and her lovely family for the weekend of fun and food!

During the visit I got a new foundation, the Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation in Intensity 2.0
This is an excellent quality foundation which leaves a silky smooth texture on the skin and lasts all day without 'sliding'off. It stays matt and photo-perfect and I would say it is one of the best foundations I have ever tried. It retails around £30 from John Lewis, Selfridges and other good department stores. I would certainly recommend it as a more high-end foundation, it is a treat to use this as I usually stick to my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation (which is also very good) which costs about £6, but it is lovely to use high-end products as a luxury.







  What high-end beauty products do you all recommend? Let me know of any must-haves please! Remember, I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers.
 Until next time,
Camille xo

    1. Thank you so much, it is expensive and I would recommend Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation as a less expensive treat which stays put and leaves a silky finish :) I am loving kimonos at the moment.

      So nice of you to stop by, have a great week :)

  30. Oh my goodness, that dessert looks absolutely incredible. I lived so close to Barnsley when I was at uni - University of Leeds. Why oh why did none of my Yorkshire friends ever take me? :O x
