Alice May's Questions for me!

1. If you could live in a different era, which era would it be? GAAAHH THIS IS SOOO HARD FOR ME! If i was pushed to answer it would have to be the see i have grown up listening to Motown and Disco and my all time favourite song is Candi Stattons Young Hearts Run Free because it reminds me of being young and surrounded by family! Also, i am still a bit of a hippy! I love plaited hair and floral print soooo 70's for me! (good question girrrl!)

2. You can have one designer bag- which one? A black, quilted, vintage chanel or an Alexander Mcqueen Skull Knuckle Duster Clutch in red or purple!

3. If you could own anyone's wardrobe in the world, who's would it be? I actually quite like my own wardrobe but if i had to pick it would be either of my nan's wardrobes when they were my age! Such trend setters!

4. When you're feeling blue, what movie do you stick on? A Disney movie! My favs are Aladdin, Sword in the Stone because Merlin is jokes, Beauty and the Beast or Hercules!

5. What's your worst fashion sin you have committed? Im actually quite proud of all the crazy things i have worn in the past even if they were awful to everyone else! However, those odd trouser/skirt things we all wore when we were younger are just plain strange!

6. If you could bring back a style, what would it be? Ooohh this is exciting! I would LOVE if the 70s hippy style came back around or the 60s punk chick style!

7. Apart from fashion, what do you also find interesting? Photography, Costume Design, Special FX Makeup, Making Installations and Performing.

8. Primark; handy or horrid? A little while ago i would have said handy all the way but recently i find it more horrid :(

10. Who is your style icon? A bit of an obvious one but i love how feminine and sexy Marilyn Monroe always looked- never hiding her fabulous curves! Someone more recent is Paloma Faith because she takes risks and has fun with fashion but yet again my style icons are my nans and their sisters, they always looked fabulous!

11. What trend are you loving at the moment? At the moment i am loving the slouchy, urban trend that came along with Rita Ora...Big slouchy cardi's, colourful Beanies etc

12. Predict the next big trend. Dungarees of all shapes, sizes and colours! This may be just because im loving mine at the moment but i do keep seeing pinafore dresses everywhere and so bring on the dungys!!

Josies Questions for me!

1. What do you enjoy most about blogging? The recognition i guess. Getting lovely comments on my style, work and photography isnt quite the same from family members- they have to be nice to me, so getting them from strangers and knowing they want to follow me is a lovely thing! Very encouraging!

2. What is your favourite season? I love the warmth of summer, the blossoms in spring, the colours of Autumn but Winter is my favourite! Hot chocolates, cosy jumpers, comfy boots, snuggling in the warm and helloo?! CHRISTMAS!!

3. Who is your fashion/beauty inspiration? I take inspiration from everyyywheree!

4. Why did you start blogging? I just wanted to share my work and passions with as many people as possible because it means so much to me!

5. What is your favourite type of blog post to do? I get a special kind of excitment from sharing my photographs and my work with people but i think my favourites are my outfit posts!

6. If you could go anywhere, where would you go? Ive got this current obsession with Thailand!!! It looks painfully beautiful and i dream of riding an elephant through a waterfall there! One day...

7. What is your favourite song? Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Statton! Reminds me of family party buffets and dancing so close to the smoke machine at the disco that i end up with a sore throat!

8. Who is your favourite blogger? I dont have a favourite, sorrryy! I like so many for so many different reasons!

9. What is your favourite book? Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern! So beautiful it made me laugh and cry! Closely followed by The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards and The Book Thief by Markus wonderful and so different!

10. What is your guilty pleasure? The, chocolate and any kind of cake!

11. What is your favourite beauty/fashion tip? Dry shampoo for day old hair= volume and nice smell! Always put on moisturiser before you apply makeup for a more even coverage and no dry bits and when it comes to fashion dont care about the critics, wear what suits you, wear what your comfy in and dont be afraid to stand out!
