These were the questions that Kerry set:

1. How many nail polish do you buy a month?
  • I don't go out and purposely reach a number of polish purchases each month but I generally end up buying 10-25+
2. How big is your collection?
  • As of April 1st 2013, I had 487 but its grown quite a bit more since!
3. Do you collect anything?
  • Yeah I'm a bit of a hoarder :S I guess its not really collecting, more accumulating but hey ho... But, I do collect magnets of all the places I visit and then I also "collect" clothes, make up, nail polish, magazines... I could go on and on.
4. What movie are you looking forward to for 2013?
  • I reaaaaally wanted to see Les Mis so I may go and buy the DVD and I might go and see a few of the many sequals/next-in-series films coming out too... I also want to go and see The Great Gatsby.
5. Any New Years resolutions?
  • Normally I set at least 10 resolutions but this year I only set three. But, I NEVER tell what they are so sorry but I can't tell you ;)
6. Favourite meal?
  • Hmm this is hard because I love food, but I'll say my mums homemade pasta/noodles.

8. What is your favourite finish?

  • Hmm, my favourite colour is purple and so I guess my favourite polish colour is purple too...

11. What are you reading currently?
  • Revision guides :( I have fifty-million exams going on (they started yesterday...)

These were the questions that Cris set:

1.Where in the world would you most like to visit?
  • Oooh, anywhere and everywhere! I can't really travel abroad at the moment because of my illness and thats made things difficult but hopefully I'm going to America next year!
2. Marmite: love or hate?
  • Hate!
3. How many polishes do you own?
  • Again, as of January 1st 2013 I had 487 but its grown quite a bit more since!
4. Do you any pets?
  • Nope :( But I do want some.
5. What's your favourite book?
  • I don't really have a favourite book at the moment but I just read An Inspector Calls an it was really good! Definitely recommend it!
6. What house would you want to be in if you were a student at Hogwarts?
  • Urmm Harry's one? I'm sorry I'm not a huge Harry Potter superfan :/ (sorry Aisha!) But I do want to Harry Potter World!
7. What's your favourite fruit?
  • Mango and cherries!
8. Who was your first celebrity crush?
  • Hmm, my first was probably Zac Effron because of High School Musical, haha. 
9. What are you most afraid of?
  • So this is a question where I could lie and say something like spiders, but I may as well just be truthful... So the thing I'm most afraid of is myself. I say that because of my illness. It means that I constantly have to be aware of myself, where I am and whats around me. And once it hits, anything could happen to me, and thats what I'm most afraid of.
10. Are you a cat person or dog person?
  • Hmm... I don't really know. I've never had a pet but a lot of my neighbours have dogs/puppies so I'll say dogs simply because I know how to handle them more than I do cats...
11. What was your most hated subject at school?
  • I still am at school haha! But I HATED P.E until my head of year said I didn't have to do it anymore because it was making my illness worse...

These were the questions that Beccy set:

1. Do you take as much care over your non-photo hand nails?
  • Generally yes, I have a bit of an ocd about symmetry and both sides being treated the same. But if I'm doing nail art then not so much.
2. Favourite website?
  • Ooh, I don't know! I'll say Blogger because it's the one I go on the most ;) 
3. If you could be any movie character who would you be?
  • Hmm, I genuinely don't know!
4. Favourite animal?
  • Horses or dolphins. 
5. Favourite word?
  • Haha, I like the word 'glossy' and 'sequin' and 'serendipity'
6. If animals became zombies, what animal would be the scariest?
  • Oh gosh, i do not want to think about that! Hmm, but I'll say hyenas because they creep me out already! 
7. Favourite tv show as kid?
  • Ooh I had loads! But probably SMart (LOVED that show! It was basically my childhood) and Raven (I wanted to be on that show so badly!)
8. Do you do anything else creative?
  • Yes! Quite a lot actually. I take Textiles for GCSE and have just bought some patterns because I'm going to be making some dresses over summer! (Keep an eye out for those posts!) Also, I paint and draw and I like to bake too. I used to do more when I was younger but things changed and thats no longer the case...
9. Sweet or savoury?
  • Both! Well in terms of actual meals I'd say savoury. But I do have a small addiction to chocolate, aha.
10. How often do you paint your nails?
  • Everyday if I'm not at school, otherwise only on weekends.
11. Favourite thing about blogging?
  • Getting to share my passion/addiction and being able to talk to fellow like minded people!


These were the questions that Accent Girl set:

1. If you could only have one social site out of facebook, twitter, youtube, blogger, instagram etc, which one would you pick?!

  • Blogger obviously! Haha but Facebook is the only contact I have with some of my family, so that too. But I do like Instagram too! Oooh I don't know! But I can like without Twitter, thats for sure.
2. Given the choice, would you rather buy cheaper things and have more, or buy more expensive things and have less?! For example, would you rather go into Primark and buy 5 vest tops for £10, or would you rather go into Topshop and buy 1 vest top for £10?!
  • Do you mean £100 for the Topshop one? Otherwise Topshop it is! But generally I prefer cheaper things unless it is something I know and love, in which case I'll happy pay the higher price. Basically if I've never used it before/don't 110% love it I'd rather pay less because I don't want to waste money on something I'm not sure about. 
3. What is your 'song on repeat' right now?
  • I haven't really listened to music properly for a while now, because I've so busy! But I am liking 'Feel This Moment' by Pitbull ft Christina Aguilera and 'Just Give Me a Reason' by P!nk ft Nate Ruess
4. What is one of your pet hates?
  • People who pretend to like/know you because they want to appear like they care in front of others. I experience that a lot...
5. Who are your top three youtubers?
  • I don't really watch Youtube religiously so I don't have a top three, sorry!
6. What one make up item could you not live without?
  • Oooh tough one! It'd have to be... eyeliner! Mainly because I wear it every day without fail! But I can't imagine not having my moisturiser and primer because even when I'm wearing 'no makeup' I still have those two on.
7. Do you prefer your hair straight, waved or curled?
  • Well my hair is naturally curlyish (basically wavy at the top and curly at the mid-to-bottom) and for about two years I straightened it every other day so now I'm just trying to embrace it! So yeah, curly when it looks half decent otherwise I can't help but make it straight.
8. If you were to go on 'Come Dine With Me' what would your 3 course menu be?!
  • Hmm... I have no clue! 
9. What are your guilty pleasures?
  • Shopping! Obviously!
10. What is the best holiday you have ever been on?
  • Well like I've said already I can't really travel abroad at the moment because of my illness and thats made things difficult so I only really go on holiday in the UK but the best one was probably the one to Portsmouth/Southampton/Devon last summer. I did A LOT of shopping, swam in the sea, visited some beautiful places, painted on the beach, ate good food and just RELAXED for once!
11. Which day of the week is your favourite?!
  • Hmmm, a good day? Haha, to be honest I don't have a favourite day, I just like any day where I'm happy and not in pain....
So now you probably know my whole life story now, whoops!
