desert island essentials

December 02, 2013

Hi guys, long time no see! As you can probably tell, I've kinda deserted my little place on the internet for the past week or so, just because I've had so many other things occupying my time. I've been rushed off my feet with 'teenager stuff' (which did include too many trips to Costa for my bank balance) and even though I've currently got five posts saved in my drafts, not a single one of them have come close to fruition recently. Which makes me sad.

I thought I'd give you a chance to read the post I was involved in over at Charlottes blog, she runs a series called Desert Island Essentials and asks bloggers six very important questions about how they'd survive. I also noticed that the name of the series does spell out DIE which made me laugh, even if it was unintentional. (was it Charlotte?)

On your lovely little desert island you find an Ipod, however it can only hold 5 songs - which five songs would you choose?
This is such a hard decision! I'll probably regret this list as soon as I get there if I'm honest...
I'll Stand by You - Girls Aloud
Live in the Country - Girls Aloud (can you tell I'm a Girls Aloud fan)
Dance with Me Tonight - Olly Murs
Things We Lost in the Fire - Bastille
Move - Little Mix because right now it is stuck in my head and it probably will never leave - haha!

Surprisingly, there is also a TV on the island! But, you can only pick one movie or TV show to watch for your time here, what would you choose?

Coronation Street because there'll be a never ending amount of episodes to watch - you see, tactical thinking here!

Before you were stranded you were carrying a book, what one book would you want to have on the island with you?

Pop Tart by Kira Coplin or one of the Goddess Guide books. Probably Pop Tart.

Obviously, you’re not going to be left to starve. If you could only have 1 meal and 1 drink a day what would it be?

A roast dinner with all the trimmings, yum! And probably Diet Coke to drink because everybody needs caffeine.

When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?

Cleansing wipes so I can take all the dirt off my face while being nice to my skin, because you never know what's going to be lurking under the sea so I don't want to wash my face in there...

Everywhere has WiFi these days, right? Well your island does! However you are limited to one blog and one YouTube channel - who would you choose?

For the blog I'd have to support my fellow Olivia and choose, not only does she have beautiful posts, she also updates regularly which would be a godsend, because I guess I'll get rather bored and lonely on this island! The Youtube channel would have to be Zoella just because I don't watch any other Youtubers that often... that's really bad isn't it!?
And there you have it! I've made a promise to myself to update more often from now on because I really do enjoy writing and designing my little part of the world wide web and it shouldn't be pushed to the side. Hopefully there'll be a post on Friday. You can view the original Desert Island Essentials post here and follow me on Bloglovin here.
Love Olivia x
