  2. This blog is the only New Years resolution that i have made that has actually lasted longer than a week.
  3. I am addicted to scented candles i have about ten in my room at the moment. I just love them. I haven't gone all out and bought a Yankee candle yet but i fancy the Fresh Cotton one. Its smells so clean and fresh!
  4. I used to be in a Duet, and have been on Welsh Radio and performed in various places including the Welsh National Eisteddfod.
  5. I want to travel the world once i have finished university. I especially, would love to travel around Germany and Poland because i have an fascination with the World Wars.
  6. I have 12 GCSE's, 4 A-levels and a first year of a BA (Hons) in performing arts (ongoing).
  7. I am a weekend supervisor on childrens wear in Primark. And i actually LOVE my job, which is one thing that two years ago i never thought i would say.
  8. I moan that i have too many clothes ( they are piled on my floor) yet i cant help buying more. I cant help myself.
  9. My favourite beauty product has got to be my LUSH ultraband cleanser! It has done my skin absolute wonders! And i will be doing a review soon.
  10. My dream is to be an actress in an West End show!
  11. My boyfriend has a puppy called Tammy, she is a little Jack Russel :) I like to think that she is mine.

My questions from Rachel were:

  1. If you were stranded on a desert island, what 3 items would you take with you and why?
  2. What is your favourite perfume?
  3. Favourite skin care brand?
  4. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  5. Would you rather wear no eye make-up or no foundation?
  6. What inspired you to create a blog?
  7. Share your best beauty tip.
  8. What is your dream job?
  9. When did you first start wearing make-up and what did you wear?
  10. Who is your favourite Youtube beauty guru?
  11. What are your top 3 current favourite songs?

  1. My phone, whether it would survive the journey onto the island, or whether or not it would be any use in calling for help would be something that i would have to find out. I would also take a blanket and some water.
  2. This is a hard question because i am stuck between two at the moment. Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Rhianna's perfume Reb'l fleur.
  3. LUSH! I love their moisturisers, solid moisturisers, hand creams, toners, cleansers. EVERYTHING!
  4. People who push in front when there is a queue! I HATE it when people do that. I am getting annoyed just thinking about it.
  5. No foundation. I rarely wear it anyway, but i could never go out without any mascara on.
  6. I don't really know what inspired me,i just enjoy reading other peoples blogs and wanted to share some of my experiences with other people :)
  7. I don't really have a tip. I don't really do anything different to everyone else. I do recommend that people with dry skin get the LUSH Ultrabland though, it does wonders.
  8. To act in the West End :) or to own/design my own clothes line. That would be good. 
  9. I haven't been wearing make-up for very long. Since i was 15 i think so about 4 years. the first thing that i ever wore was mascara, i cant live without it.
