11 Questions from Rusty Sequins

1. What inspired you to start blogging? 

This sounds rather strange, but I was literally extremely bored one day last Summer and had always had a love for writing. Instead of writing stories, which I could never seem to end, I focussed my attention on blogging as I love the interaction side of it and now I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

2. Who is your idol and why?

My mumma bear! This is rather cliche, but I would honestly say my idol is my mother as she always seems to know what she’s doing and never has a bad word to say about anyone. I have learnt to appreciate her a lot more now that I’ve left home.

3. At what age did you start loving make-up?

Honestly? I only started really loving it about 6 months ago. I’m more of a fashion/travel/lifestyle kind of gal.

4. What is your favourite film?

Generally, any girly rom-com or The Help (watched it yesterday and fell in love). At Christmas time, there is only one option – Elf!

5. What is your favourite brand of makeup?

100 times MAC. If only I could afford it, ahhh.

6. If you could recommend me one concealer what would it be and why?

At the moment, I’m using the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer and it is working wonders.

7. Who is your biggest crush?

Oh wow, there’s a few – David Gandy, Luke Pasquilino, Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum. Oh, and Matt Lanter etc, etc…

8. Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years time?

On my gap year with a Law with French degree under my belt – fingers crossed!

9. Where to you find the best clothes?

H & M, Topshop, River Island – I’m a high street girl and try my best to get my clothes in the sales!

10. Who was your first celebrity crush growing up?

Probably Jay Sean, haha.

11. What was your first concert?
