The lovely Vicky over at her beautiful blog Aha Shake Heartbreaker, has tagged me in a post! You remember those questionnaire things that always used to go around Myspace? Well it's like that, only cooler (I'm lying - nothing is cooler than Myspace. I miss it). Anyway, here are my answers. Not being a fashion blogger per se, my answers will no doubt be the opposite of what everyone else will say. But that's why you love me, right? Right?

1.) Why did you start blogging?
Several reason really. I set this up aaages ago, but I never wrote on it because I thought, who on earth is going to read this stuff? Then my pal Hayley started a blog, so I began to post because I figured that this way atleast one person is going to read it. And then I got a bit carried away and now I post loads. I basically just wanted somewhere that I could write about music I listen to or films I see, gigs I go to, books I read and things that I love. All the pictures that I post are things that I would print out and stick into my diary if I had a printer, or, indeed, a diary.
2.) Do you prefer Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter?
SUMMER! Not even Spring/Summer, but just SUMMER. I hate Winter. I hate New Years. I adore Christmas, but I hate the crushing feeling of anticlimax when Christmas is over. I hate it when it gets dark early. I hate it when I get up for work and it's still dark. I HATE BEING COLD. HATE IT. I can't bear being cold, so Winter is the worst for me. I love summer; I love the freedom it gives you because it's warm and light and you can wear whatever you want without having to worry about trying not to freeze to death. Fashion-wise, I far prefer A/W campaigns, but for myself, summer is the only season that I can comfortably handle. When I was on holiday, being able to go out at night in only denim cut-offs and a blouse was The Best.
3.) What do you notice first: Smokey eye make-up or bright lips?
Bright lips are more striking and noticeable, but I prefer smokey eyes for myself.
4.) Who are your style icons?
Alexa Chung can do no wrong; I would wear any outfit of hers and be very happy. Florence Welch is also fairly perfect on the style scale. Alison Mosshart; she's so cool it makes me want to cry. Bands from the early sixties, like The Beatles in their black tie phase, or Rolling Stones in their flouncy phase. Bands nowadays, like The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, or Kings of Leon. I take tips from anywhere, but music and musicians is my big one.

5.) Describe your personality in three words?
Obsessive. Ridiculous. Sarcastic.

6.) If you had to leave the house with only one item of make-up what would it be?
Aaaah, that's a tough one because I physically cannot leave the house without foundation or eyeliner. But if I had a gun to my head, I would choose foundation and just wear sunglasses, or something.
7.) Which era do you think influenced fashion the most?
I think the Sixties was a really big era for fashion; that period of time opened up so many levels for us now, and gave us so much freedom. But in terms of influencing fashion, nothing has been more influencial than Chanel. She changed everything in women's fashion, so I would say The Chanel Era.
8.) What beauty product do you always repurchase?
Bourjois foundation, Rimmel kohl eyeliner.
