Jack Wills Weekend Essentials Gift Set

I have to admit, I am overly excited by this product(s). Jack Wills are well known for their amazing quality clothing and accessories but also do very well with their cosmetic ranges at Christmas time in Boots. Last year, I bought a few friends various Jack Wills products and it went down a hit!
 When both fashion and beauty come together in this gift set, it's enough to make a girl (young or old) drool -  it's definitely one for the Christmas list!

First of all, let's take a moment to appreciate this back pack. Everything comes in this super convenient bag that would be perfect for school, work or shopping! Everything seems very sturdy, it fits folders in nicely and is comfortable to wear. Plus, it looks incredibly cute yet sophisticated with the classic Jack Wills logo and tartan print. 

Front left: water bottle, body polisher, Hope Cove Body Butter, Lotion, Wash and Scrub

Inside the rucksack are 4 full size products from the Jack Wills body range in their signature, Hope Cove scent. Also, the set comes with a handy sports bottle and body polisher (I'm ALWAYS in need of a new one of these!). 

The set itself is £50, except I believe it is currently on offer at Boots, even at RRP, however, I think the set is a fabulous price as I would expect the rucksack alone to be more than that. Overall, the set would make a wonderful present for all lovers of the 'Fabulously British' brand. Although, I expect these to fly off the shelves so hurry! 

What's on your Christmas list this year?
Lots of love

Hairspray for Fringes - VO5 Ultimate Hold vs. Bed Head Masterpiece

This post is on yet another somewhat mundane issue - hairspray. There are so many brands to chose from and so many prices too! After going on holiday and forgetting hairspray (I have a fringe so use it daily to stop it looking funny) I picked up some VO5 Ultimate Hold as my usual Bed Head Masterpiece is quite pricey. So I thought I would put them to the test in a battle of skinted vs. minted.

Value for money: The Bed Head Masterpiece is considerably more at RRP £14.95 and has 60 ml less product than the Ultimate Hold (£3.29). However, one can of Masterpiece has now lasted me four months as you hardly have to use any. Also, it is much cheaper online at around £7.00. When I use the VO5 hairspray, I find I have to use a lot more for the same hold which makes the hair look like straw. However, you could buy many more cans of the VO5 for the price. 

Hold: The Bed Head is brilliant. It keeps my fringe in place even when I walk to school in the wind and unless the weather is appalling, my hair…

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

This trip seems like a lifetime ago ye…

Challenging a Holy Grail

It's probably a bit strange that my first blog post in a while is a foundation/makeup thing. It really has been a while since I've done anything like this because, let's be honest, anybody reading this is likely 100x more experienced and knowledgable about makeup than I am after spending the year rarely wearing it.

However, when I look online, I struggle to find foundation recommendations for people with similar skin to mine so I thought this might be of some use.

I have very fair skin so struggle to find anything from high street makeup brands (and high end most of the time) that's the right shade as my skin, despite being pale, doesn't particularly have pink undertones, which most foundations at the lighter end of the shade range tend to have.

The only foundation that I tend to buy other than the MAC Studio Fix fluid in NW10 (a tad too dark but good for going out) is the Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry in 110 Ivory. When I first started to use this foundation, I used…
