.....JEAN VAL-JEANNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!! (Apologies to anybody who hasn't seen Les Miserables and didn't understand my need to break out into song just then)

ANYWAY, I have kindly been nominated by my girl Chloe at OFF THE RAIL for the Liebster award! Basically it's kind of like a chain email sent around bloggers where you are sent a list of questions from another blogger to answer, before creating some more questions to send onto whoever you decide to nominate. So in simple terms, it's a nice way to get to know a little more about the blogger.

Here goes!

1. What are your 'Desert Island' album/TV show/book selection? Only 1 of each category!

Album- Sam Smith. However if I really was trapped on a desert island by myself listening to Sam Smith on repeat I would probably end up feeding myself to the next passing shark. He does have a beautiful voice though! Maybe I should have gone for something a little more uplifting....
TV Show- The Real Housewives of New York/New Jersey/The OC/Atlanta/Cheshire/Miami! Do they all count? I am not even ashamed to admit I am obsessed with every single series.
Book- ERRRRMMM so yeah. I don't read. So I would probably take Heat magazine.

2. Are there any kind of blog posts that annoy you?

Not really! I love anything beauty/fashion/lifestyle/fitness/food related so I think that covers pretty much everything I currently read!

little blurry because I was moving so fast (LOL)

3. Have you ever had a near death experience?

Unfortunately yes, I was hit by a car in August 2013 and was in a cast UP TO MY ACTUAL VAGINA for two months. It was such a horrible time in my life, but I am just so thankful that I can walk again!

4. You've been elected Prime Minister/President/whatever. What law would you implement/abolish?
I KNEW THERE WOULD BE SOME FORM OF POLITICS QUESTION! I would have free spray tans, free drinks at every bar at happy hour on Fridays, holidays abroad twice a year, no work on Sundays, no animals in captivity (#FREELOLITA) and no unemployment. It angers me that people scam the benefits system when in actual fact they just can't be arsed finding a job. Also showers built into every public toilet (there is no excuse for bad hygiene!!!) Oh, and anybody who doesn't cover their mouth when they cough gets an automatic fine. It's VILE.

5. If you had to immigrate, where would you go and why?
AMERICA! I lived there for six months when I was younger, because my mum decided to do a history degree and study out their for a term, and she took us with her. I fell in love with every state we visited and have longed to go back ever since. Also, I would like to be able to eat Lucky Charms for breakfast every day and not have to pay £7.99 a box from Selfridges.

6. What job role do you imagine you will have in later life?
My absolute dream job would be a full-time blogger! It combines two of my biggest passions, fashion/beauty and writing. I have always had a creative streak and would the opportunity to use my blog towards my professional career. I would love to work in social media, maybe a content editor or copywriter or something along those lines.

7.You can only buy one brand of make-up from now on. What is it?
MAC. It pains me to say that because I hate the fact they still test on animals!!!!!! But they have the biggest and best range of products.


8. If you were forbidden access to your own clothes, who's wardrobe would you raid? Celebrities included
Ooooooh a tough one! Probably Olivia Palermo, she always looks bang-on trend and absolutely flawless.

9. What do you do in your spare time that you consider to be out of the norm? Blogging not included
This is going to make me sound so boring but I actually don't think I do anything out of the norm! My life is pretty routine at the moment, I go to work, I go to the gym, I go out for drinks and dinner. That's about it I'm afraid!

10. Out of your five senses - which would you hate to live without the most and why?
Sight! I just can't imagine what life would be like without my eyesight. I think I would enjoy living without taste- I would be soooooo skinny!

11. What would your first three purchases be if you won the lottery?
Cream MINI, flight to Vegas, a mansion for my parents.

I nominate Hannah, Lorna, Kirstie, Emma, Sarah, Karen, Jess, Jeran, Heather, Roisin and Suey. (Click through for links)
My questions are-
1. If you were a contestant on mastermind, what would your specialist subject be?
2. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
3. Why did you take up blogging?
4. What is your biggest achievement to date and why? (getting into uni and passing driving test NOT allowed!)
5. What is your favourite thing about yourself? And what would you like to change?
6. Explain your style in three words.
7. Where do you see yourself in five years?
8. What is the most expensive beauty product/item of clothing you own?
9. What is the story behind your blog name?
10. Who is your favourite Kardashian and why? 
11. If you had a dinner party and could invite three people (dead or alive), who would they be?

Looking forward to reading your responses!
