Here are the questions which I have been asked to answer:
Would you survive a zombie apocalypse?
Probably not but I think I would have a good chance of surviving a typical horror film.
You have 3 beauty products during the aforementioned apoclypse, what are they?
Loreal True Match foundation, Black eyeliner and green nailpolish. 

You also have 2 outfits, what are they?
Black velvet dress, tights and black velvet shoes - told you I loved velvet. Black nautical hell bunny dress and my leopard print stilettos from Office - I'm not gonna survive the zombies so I might as well go out in style.  
Are you a cat or a dog person? Why?
Deffo a dog person because they are more loyal than cats.  I judge people that are cat people.
Who is the most stylish woman right now? 
Dita Von Teese will always be my style icon - she just radiates timeless glamour. I would love to have the kind of lifestyle that would allow me to dress like that. 
Who is one 'style icon' you really cant stand?
Any of the generic style bunnies from the likes of heat magazine.  I find it sad when people don't have personal style.  
Guilty pleasure?
Horrible Histories.  I love it! 
What is the favourite thing about yourself?
The fact that I'm a weirdo or 'quirky' as some would say.  I'm deffo a bit of a Helena Bonham Carter but I enjoy that I have a bit of an edge. 
If one song was to be the theme tune of your life, what would it be?
I have always thought that if a film were to be made about my life I would want Danny Elfman to do the soundtrack - like Edward Scissorhands or Corpse Bride.    
Are you a spot or a stripe?
Spot all the way.  A polka dot to be precise.  I also adore polka dots. I define people by whether they are a spot or a stripe.  If you are a stripe person and a cat person we will probably never be that close lol.  
What sort of blog posts do you most enjoy?
I enjoy general beauty review blogs but I also enjoy music blogs.
