Not Quite London’s Questions
1. What is your favorite subject to blog about?
– I have enjoyed writing about beauty related things so far but I’m excited to write about more lifestyle things and book reviews or products reviews. I like doing ‘favourite’ or wishlist posts ***hint hint I have a luxury wishlist coming up*** 😂

– TEA all the way!!! I love a cuppa nearly every day!!! My mum always moans at me because I have nearly 3 spoons of sugar in my tea!!! 😜
3. Top 5 books/films
– Films = All the Harry Potter films, Any and Every Disney movie, The Borrowers, Big Hero 6 and Panic Room!!!
4. Favourite season and why?
– Summer because there’s no school, it’s warm ( well as warm as it can be in Scotland 😂) and I get to go on holiday with my family!!!
5. Dream holiday destination?
– Probably America because I really want to go to all the cool American shops like Target and Walmart and go shopping in Sephora or Bath and body works. Also I want to desperately see Wicked on Broadway *** cries a little inside*** and I want to go to all the rubbishy touristy places that most Americans are probably sick off tourists going on about 😜
6. Favourite cocktail?
– Obviously never had an alcoholic one but when I was on holiday in Turkey I went to a restaurant that did children’s fruity cocktails and they were all named after Disney princess’s… I think if I remember right my favourite was a Cinderella which had tropical juice, strawberries and pineapple in it 😂
7. Most embarrassing moment?
– Right this is going to be hard to narrow down … Okay … Years ago I was running up the stairs racing my dad who was in the lift to get into my flat and when I got to my floor I heard a phone ringing and assumed my dad was already there and waiting for me and that it was his phone that was ringing. Soo back then I used to constantly shout “Your phones goin!!!” when I heard a phone ringing…. So naturally I burst through the stairs door to my landing and shouted “Your Phones Goin!!!!!” to what I thought would be my dad … But … No … It was a random stranger ( a builder in fact, working in my flat) and he gave me an awkward smile and nod of the head and said ” haha … Yeah …. Thanks …. I got it” with the worlds most awkward laugh. All I can remember next is trying to mumble ha no sorry I thought you were someone else but I think that came out as
“HA …. NO ….. urghaaghh uhguhu!?!?!?!?!?”
Yeah ….. he just looked confused as hell and I slunk away to my flat and died with massive embarrassment 😭
8. Favourite beauty treatment?
– I had a Turkish Bath when I was on holiday and it feel like heaven. It consisted of going in the sauna and sweating like an insane pig, then going into a massive tiled room and throwing freezing cold water over each other that caused extreme pain and then lying on a big platform where a strange Turkish man put soapy bubbles and scrubby things on you and then you went then another freezing cold water throwing bit to wash this all off you (although this sounds horrific and illegal it was AMAZING!!!) . Then, we got a honey face and body massage and got to go in a hot tub which was literally one of the best things ever!! – So yeah whatever category of beauty treatments this comes under, this is what I pick 😂 lol
