11 Questions Tag

I've seen loads of people do this lately and always wanted to join in but was never tagged :( So I'm really happy that I now have been and I have a chance to do it! Yay!
I was tagged by the very lovely Charlie over at one of my favourite blogs CharlieDBeauty, if you're not already following her you should go check out her blog!! :)

3. Choose eleven people to tag and link them in your post. 
4. Go to their page and tell them they were tagged. 
5. No tag backs! 
6. You have to really tag eleven people, not just say "If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged!" or something like that.

Charlies's 11 Questions 

1. What is your star sign?

I'm a Virgo :) 

2. Do you have any children? If so how many? What age?

I don't have any children yet, but my boyfriend Jon & I are planning to start trying for a baby within the next year or so :) I do have two nieces who I am very close to, who are 4 and 2 - they're my makeshift children for now lol

3. What is your favourite tv show?

At the moment I'm mostly watching The Middle, Modern Family and catching up on my Sky + recordings of One Born Every Minute and Desperate Housewives. My all time fav show though would be Friends or Sex & The City. And I do love trashy E! shows like Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Girls of The Playboy Mansion, etc! 

4. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I think I wanted to be something different everyday! I guess the main thing I wanted to be was a teacher or a writer, and I would still love to be either!

5. Why did you start blogging?

Well I love writing and it seemed like a good way to stay in practice, and it was so much more fun than I thought that now I'm hooked!

6. What is your favourite nail polish?

I always find it so hard to choose just one of anything! I think I'd say its Barry M's Strawberry Ice Cream right now, coz I love pink and that particular shade of soft pink is my absolute favourite!

7. Which beauty/make-up item do you have most of?

Ooh good question! I think it would be eyeshadows, which is quite odd actually as I tend to wear the same shades all the time yet I have tons of outlandish colours that I NEVER wear! 

8. Who is your favourite singer/band?

I have a LOT and a very varied taste in music...I don't really know who my favourite is, but I'd say my top 5 are: Britney Spears, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Tori Amos and Barry Manilow (I know its cringey but I dont care!) :P...I also LOVE Kate Bush and The Cure...see, I cannot choose! :D

9. Which is your favourite type of shoe? (stiletto, wedge etc)

I absolutely cannot physically walk in wedges, so they are a definite no for me. I do love stilettos but I'm 5'8 and I hate the feeling of towering above everybody else so I only tend to wear heels for going out (luckily my best friend s are both 5'11!) - most of the time you'll find me in either gladiator sandals or uggs (depending on the season!)

10. If you could meet anyone in the world (living or dead) who would it be?

I'd have to say the Queen. I'm obsessed with the royal family at the moment thanks to all the Jubilee celebrations! Usually I would have probably said Marilyn Monroe.

11. How old were you when you discovered make-up/beauty products?

I started to buy make up (constance carroll!) when I was about 11 from the local pharmacy, and started wearing it everyday when I was about 15. I remember first trying it on when I was around 3 though, my mum used to dress me up as Sandy from Grease - complete with red lipstick and wet look leggings!!!
