Easter Egg Hunt!

Since I was little, the 'Easter bunny' has left clues around the house in the morning for myself and then my brother to go on a mini Easter egg hunt. Despite being 16 and 11 now, for the 'Easter bunny' 's enjoyment and the generally fun, on Easter Sunday morning (or the day before if we're going on holiday ) slightly terrible poems will be left around the house, sending us on a journey in our pyjamas around the house... And cellar... And garden. 

And so I thought I would post these amazing clues on here for a but of Easter fun to see if you can guess where the eggs were hidden, or take some inspiration for your own Easter egg hunts!

1 - in the hallway between mine and my brother's bedroom 

I told you they were awful...
Answer: loft


In the potato bin

In the cellar (very cold)


On top of the kitchen cupboards (Boo is our very greedy black Labrador) 


Easter bunny ran out of creativity.... Shed was also very cold 

Egg hunts or hunts for anything I think are really fun ideas for any occassion; perhaps you're babysitting or going on a family picnic. When I was younger, my grandma would sometimes create treasure hunts in the woods in the summer - it doesn't have to be expensive either, my grandma would often tie ribbons around branches and we'd find a small gift at the end, often stickers or small toys. 

If you're babysitting or just looking for a wet day activity, however, hiding everyday objects is often just as fun, if we've run out of things to do whilst I'm babysitting sometimes, this is on the list of possible things to fill the time! 

I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend! Let me know any of your Easter traditions :)

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…
