- Come up with 11 new questions for them to answer.
1.Who is your celebrity style crush?
Millie Mackintosh from Made in Chelsea. I love the way that she mixes designer and high street, and classic Chelsea with a vintage vibe. Check out my celeb style post.
2. What season style do you prefer (i.e. winter or summer styles)
You all might gasp in horror here but I have to say winter. I love layering clothes and you can’t beat an investment coat. I bought my recent winter coat from Topshop three years ago and it was £190, proving that sometimes it does pay to spend a little extra (only sometimes!) I love the bell sleeves and if you twirl round it puffs out, so girly.
3. If you could only wear 1 colour for the rest of your life what would it be?
White. Simple, sophisticated and elegant. I love my cigarette trousers from Next and nothing says summer like a white summer dress.
4. What style or trend do you wish you could wear but doesn't work for you?
Easy one; Sports luxe. I think this look oozes effortless style but unfortunately if I wear loose fitting tops without a belt, I resemble a pregnant woman at 10 weeks who still hasn’t told everyone and is trying to hide the bump.
5. 1 beauty product you can not live without?
This may sound obvious but concealer. I have an extremely busy life; a full time job with an hour long commute each way, a husband, family and friends and now my blog so unfortunately I sometimes resemble a panda, thank God for Benefit's Erase Paste.
6. (stealing a question from above) Why did you start your blog?
I’ve always loved fashion and writing; when I was younger I wanted to be the editor of Vogue, a 'realistic' goal but as I’ve got older I decided that I wanted to write purely for my own enjoyment, so when I looked back on my life I had no regrets, and that it was something that I was proud of.
7. What do you want to achieve with your blog/career in the next 10 years?
I think I answered this question in answer number 6; editor of Vogue...ONLY KIDDING! I would love to be a fashion writer or a features writer. Although I will nearly be 40 by then (scary).
8. What's been your biggest fashion disaster?
A red dress with a lace mesh over the top. I wore this when I was 15, going underage clubbing (hang my head in shame). It was hideous; it resembled a curtain, sadly for you, my lovely readers, there is no photographic evidence, phew!
9. Real, spray or sun bed tanning?
My answer to this question depends on how lazy I am feeling. If I can be bothered and if I am going out with my friends that tan I use Rimmel Instant tan. I hate sun beds, I feel like I’m standing in a coffin and I find £25 minimum a bit extortionate for a spray tan. £5.99 all the way.
10. Best festival look this season?
Hunter wellies are to the festival season what a Chanel jacket is to a woman’s wardrobe; they never go out of style.
11. Random fact about you
