HULL FAIR?! | ATypicalLife

Hey guys! Oh my if only you all knew how much I’ve missed you. School has been so stressful and I haven’t had time to blog at all! However I did get a few good days within all these boring ones, I went to hull fair!

So if you live in Yorkshire you know what hull fair is. Every year us yorkshires look forward to it. The luscious hotdogs, the crunchy brandy snap, the sickly but amazing fruit cables, and then seeing it all up again after we’ve been on the waltzers about 9 times.

But there is really something great about hull fair. Everyone comes together for a week in October every year and just has fun together, it’s as simple as that, and the cheap yet cheerful stands and games will always put a smile on your face.

I definitely went to fair way too many times this year at a total of 3 times which was not too great for my bank account but I do not regret it at all. I experienced way more rides than I do usually and even went on some stalls which I usually just leave out. Going on way more rides this year gave me such a nice experience and therefore memories with the best people and I even won a pug on hook a duck!!

A total of 4 arrests were made at hull fair this year which is absolutely amazing compared to previous years and I couldn’t be prouder of our little city (I mean 0 would be better but you can’t have it all). So personally I thought the police deserved a nice break at the end of their shift. However The Sun didn’t see it that way after posting front page news of the police officers going on the bumper cars. It’s 3 minutes, calm down media, we were safe and we were happy.

So the rides in particular include things from the big wheel where you can see an absolutely breathtaking cure of the fair and take photos or have an absolutely sensational experience with your friends a loved one, to the bunjee jump were you are propelled over 100 feet into the air on two bouncy strings and feel as if you’ll die. Or you can go on the waltzers and spin till your hearts content.

And before you leave, you have to try one of the slushes from the lovely old man. Mango or blue raspberry or even coke? You choose. And don’t forget to have a burger covered in caramelised onions, melting cheese and bright red tomato sauce before you go.

So if you didn’t make to Hull Fair 2017 make sure you take a trip in 2018! Suitable for your family, young kids or your best friends!

I’m back now guys and I hope to be regularly posting again, I’m hoping to have a post up next week about a lovely company that shipped me some of their cosmetic samples for free so look forward to that!

Thanks for reading guys!! Please like, comment and follow if you enjoyed and ill see you next week!

Have you been to a fair/festival?

What’s in my school bag | ATypicalLife

Hey guys! Sorry for the little disappearance! I had a dance show and school started again so I’ve been quite busy! However, I’m back! And it’s September! Whattt?! That’s literally crazy. I was going to do an August favourites for you guys and then remembered I was poor last month and didn’t really buy anything else to have as a favourite. However, as it’s now school again and the summer has technically over (though I’m clinging on until September 22nd) i thought I would do a what’s in my school bag!!

So this bag is from river island and I’m literally in love with it, even though about 9 other people have the same bag in my school, it’s very popular as you can tell haha. I just love the colour, it’s very autumnesque and if anyone knows me they know I’m obsessed with this sort of colour. It’s pretty big and has some pockets in and I’m 97% sure it was £36

Okay so the first thing I have in my bag is my pencil case. This is one from Tesco actually, it’s grey with flowers on and it’s extremely cute, it was an impulse buy as I needed one and I was shopping like a week before school with no pencil case haha. This just has in my pencils, pens, a rubber, a sharpener, some highlighters and a glue stick in, I’m still hoping to get some colourful ink joys but I can’t find a big pack anywhere! I’ve tried to keep it pretty basic as I always buy a stupid amount of things to go in my pencil case and don’t end up using half of it by the end of the year anyway

The next thing in my bag is my little necessities bag, I used to use this as my actual makeup bag but now I have it in my school bag with some powder in, some bobbles, grips, lip balm, and some body spray. It’s just very helpful to have as I always end up needing them and it’s so much better to have them in one tiny bag instead of all over in your actual bag because who wants to look for a bobble and find one in the bottom of your bag covered in hair and crumbs? Not me.

In my small pocket I have my memory stick because I do media and it’s way too much stuff to keep on my profile at school because it gets full so easily, so this is really helpful. I also keep tic tacs in there because we aren’t allowed chewing gum and I’m too lazy and not rebellious enough to get away with it so tic tacs are so much more discrete and still keep your breath fresh.

The next thing in my bag is my coat, I just keep this in my bag all the time now because I need it most days now we’re in autumn (whoooh!) and living in Britain means it very likely it will rain whenever you are going out and I’ve had way too many experiences where I haven’t had my coat on me and I go to school looking like a literal drowned rat because I walk to school

Okay so I also I have my planner in my bag, this basically has my lessons in and a little space for each day of the year just to write in what we need such as homework, by the end of the year I never end up using this but they’re always really picky at the beginning of the year and make us put it on our desk so I can’t really forget it at the moment

Okay so the last few things I have in my bag are just little things like my purse and my dance kit when I have dance at school which is twice a week, I also take a water bottle and a snack sometimes for break. As the year gets a bit further on I take textbooks and stuff too but it’s only the beginning of the year so I’m trying to take it as easy as possible right now.

So these are the main things I have in my school bag! Sorry I’ve been a-wal for a while but I think I’m going to be back now! Hopefully haha, just bear with me for a while especially now I’m in year 11. Thanks for reading guys! If you enjoyed then like and leave a comment and follow! Bye guys!

Where’s your handbag from?

Lemon Drizzle Loaf | ATypicalLife

thumbnail_IMG_5600Hey guys! You’re probably aware that i didn’t post on Wednesday again and today is Monday not Sunday but I think I’m gonna be just posting weekly again as I’ve been really busy and I was going to start posting every Sunday again when I get back to school anyway, (which is just over a week, please don’t make me go) I hope you don’t mind! Also, I’ve got a dance show next Sunday so I will probably be posting that post on Saturday instead so I don’t have to stress about it. Okay so now we’ve gotten all that out of the way, I thought I’d share an amazing recipe for a lemon drizzle loaf. I will put my hands up in saying that I have actually not made this before but I gave the recipe to my auntie and she made an absolutely amazing one so I thought I’d share the deliciousness with you

Q&A | Atypicallife

IMG_5458.JPGHey guys! Sorry there was no post on Wednesday. I’ve been really busy and just took a mini break for like a week which felt really good so that meant I haven’t really been active on all your posts too and I’m excited to go through and read them all now I’m back! I also had a really bad day yesterday for my anxiety which was not cute so coming back and answering these questions makes me feel so much more at home and warm. So I asked for some Q&A questions on my Instagram and recent post and I actually got quite a few so I’m really excited to go through and answer these!!

Morphe 350 review| ATypicalLife

morphe.jpgHey guys! So the most controversial thing about Morphe is how you say it right? So I say it like morphe instead of morph-ee. But I won’t lie, I don’t have a clue how it’s actually meant to be said. Morphe 350 was the first morphe palette I ever bought, in fact it’s the only Morphe palette I’ve ever bought but I’ve had it for quite a few months now so I thought I’d share with you if I actually think it’s worth it!

My summer morning routine | ATypicalLife

morning routineHey guys! So at the minute I’m sat watching friends and thought I’d write a post for you guys! So I’ve been on my summer holiday for about two weeks and I already don’t want it to end because I go into year 11 and yes, I’ve heard all of the horror stories. But it’s my dance show two days before term starts so it’s unfair. However, while I was in bed earlier I was thinking of some posts I wanted to write for you guys because I always get my best ideas either in the shower or in bed first thing in the morning, mainly because I’m in both so much, and I decided to write my summer holiday morning routine for you!

My top 5 book picks| ATypicalLife

Hey guys! So recently I’ve fallen into the pitfalls of reading again. I really go through phases were I either read no books in about 6 months- or about 10 books in a month, and July has been one of those months. I’ve discovered quite a few favourites while also rekindling with some of my old loves. Anyway, it got me thinking about how much I love reading and that I want to share with you my favourite books. You will all be expecting ‘The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting” but I won’t be including it purely because of the fact it’s all I talk about and you’re probably all sick of hearing about it. By the way these aren’t in order because I couldn’t choose between then! This is going to be a long post so get a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy this post
