It's all about..

I just read a questionnaire in a magazine and realized I hadn't done one of these things for a while so thought I'd give it a whirl...

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I went through phases; policewoman after my mum when she was younger, for a while I wanted to be a journalist, but then when I was 23 I ended up in digital marketing.

What's your earliest fashion memory?
Either my red patent leather Doc Marten's or Bon Bleu trackies. The latter's a Scouse thing.

Your secret talent?
I've never lost a thumb war.

Biggest fashion faux-pas?
Basically most things I wore from the age of 12-18.

Career highlight?
Being listed as one of the most influential people in the online fashion industry by Vogue when I was 22.

Trends you'll be trying this year?
I don't like trends; I'm a bit of a laggard - if I see something has staying power, I'll buy into it. Probably slides or Birkenstocks. But neither with socks. I've had slides for about 8 years and always had Birkenstocks but never thought about them as such a trend piece. I'd wear them because they were comfy and looked good.

Cheapest and most expensive item in your wardrobe?
Cheapest has to be basics from H&M and Primark. Most expensive, probably some Acne pieces I've got, or my Alexander Wang Donna Hobo.

Where do you get your beauty inspiration?
I'm addicted to YouTube - specifically the beauty gurus. I get most inspiration from them; Promise Phan, Wayne Goss and Zoella to name three.

How do you feel when you remove your makeup and are completely barefaced?
I rarely remove my eyebrows, so I'm never completely barefaced, but I love taking my make up off at the end of the day.

What's the one make up product you'd seriously cry about if you had to give it up?
Any eyebrow products.

What's your favorite foundation and mascara?
At the moment, I'm mixing MAC Face and Body with a Max Factor one. The MF one is quite drying and the F&B is oil/water based so the two compliment each other well. Mascara.. I'm pretty easy going tbh and change from a day to day basis. Benefit "They're Real" is pretty good for a natural look.

Favorite perfume?
Chanel Chance. I've been wearing it since I was about 14, or whatever year it came out. I adore Hermes Eau de Terre for sentimental reasons though.

What skin care products would we find in your bathroom cabinet?
Nothing super luxurious. I use head and shoulders to wash my face at night, the zinc in it has cleared my acne up, it's a lifesaver.

Which beauty treatments do you go for?
None. Ever. Sad timez.

What's on your average breakfast, lunch and dinner plate?
I eat a croissant on the train, or a banana and a Grande Freshly Brewed, or eggs and hot sauce for brekkie, for lunch I have soup, and dinner tends to vary; sometimes a box of nuts, sometimes a bowl of spinach, or salmon salad, sometimes bacon and eggs. Different foods for different moods.

Teehee that was fun.

Hope you enjoyed, feel free to do it too!
