fourteen questions

Tuesday, 21 December 2010

I was tagged by Jess over at Boo You Whore (check her out now!) to answer these 14 questions. I'm happy to do it because I guess they're not your average questions, and hopefully this is another way for you all to find out a bit more about me...

1. What is your dream job?

Performing on stage every night in a hit musical in London's West End. I'd be the main character. I'd make people cry. With happiness, that is.

2. What is your favourite fragrance for winter?
I'd never really thought to divide my fragrances by season? Is this normal? But at the moment, I tend to wear Girard Provence Spring in the day and then Emporio Armani Femme for special occassions. I have way too many perfumes from working in Boots.

3. How do you take your tea/coffee?
I don't drink either. I've never liked coffee, and kind of hope I never do as it's so calorific! Tea makes my stomach hurt but I actually quite like the taste. I'm happy to not drink hot drinks but if I had to choose, it would be green tea or the occassional hot chocolate.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
Use an intensive moisturiser on your legs and then wrap them in cling film. This should obviously be done at night, or people will think you insane. This is great for people like me, whose legs thinks it's hilarious to be as dry as tree bark.

5. If you had an all-expenses paid vacation, where would you go?

6. If a genie offered you three wishes right now, what would they be?
Longer hair.
£10,000 for my Europe trip - done with a little style, maybe.
A guaranteed job for when I graduate.

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
Dinner because I think there would be more variety. I just love food.

8. What's your biggest beauty pet peeve?
Orange people.

9. If you could only wear one piece of jewellery for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That's ridiculously difficult. I don't really own any valuable jewellery, just costume so... Right now, it would have to be my recently acquired teddy bear necklace, because he's special.

10. What one talent do you wish you had?
I wish I could whistle, because I feel very left out when singing along to 'Whistle While You Work' and I have to hum.

11. Which product will you continue to purchase?
No7 Protect & Perfect serum, day cream and night cream. TRUST.

12. If you could look into the future, would you?
I'd love to be one of those people who are like 'No, of course not. What happens will happen.' But I'm not. Of course I would.

13. Who is your celebrity crush?
Where to start? Milo Ventimiglia, Alexander Skarsgard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Adam Brody, Robert Pattinson (I know, I know) and - I don't care that she's a woman - Natalie Portman.

14. What made you start a blog?
I originally got the idea from my course of Fashion Journalism at university, where they suggested that it's a great way to practice writing daily and get yourself out there. But now, I think I love it more for myself. I really do love writing, and I enjoy interacting with other bloggers and getting inspiration from their style. It's far more interesting than a magazine, I've come to realise.


  1. It's great to learn a little bit more about you from these questions! Also, I sent you an email to let you know that you won my giveaway! Just send me your address and I'll have your little package on its way! Congrats :)

  2. Natalie Portman would also be my celebrity crush. She's both intelligent and beautiful.

  3. Those 3 wishes sound pretty good right now...


  4. Oh, I do my blog for the same reasons. It' too much fun to give up. Also I adore Adam Brody. I've liked since the OC.

  5. amen to orange people, little oompas!

  6. Haha this is really good (:

  7. I like your answers, although it's a shame you don't drink tea :p and Alexander Skarsgard gets the thumbs up from me.. I can barely whistle myself but it's not all it's cracked up to be surely ! xx

  8. Loved your answers!

    I think that my legs have been communicating with yours lately since they're apparently pulling the same stunt. >:( Will definitely be trying your method!


  9. love love love this post, the questions are great and was fun to read :) xx

  10. Wonderful quiz this! Though I'll have to get working on turning you into a coffee fan, we can't be friends otherwise! lol! Good tip on the legs front, mine join in the same game it seems, they get so crackly it's truly awful. Especially in this dry cold weather jazzy ♥


Thank you so much for reading :)
