Desert Island Essentials #1

The other day I had an idea for a little blog series based on the age old question ‘what would you take if you were stranded on a desert island?’. To make it a little bit more interesting I’ve made up my own questions, and I want you to be involved! Every Sunday I’ll be asking a different blogger what their Desert Island Essentials are, so if you would like to be involved follow the instructions at the end of the post.

Imagine you are stranded on a desert island in the middle of the ocean without a person in sight, however not to worry, as this island is pretty luxurious compared to some others! I’m asking a different blogger every week what their desert island essentials are, this week – seeing as it’s the first week – I’m going to answer the questions myself!

On your lovely little desert island you find an iPod, however it can only hold 5 songs – which five songs would you choose?
1. The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson
2. Any Other Way by We The Kings
3. Part of Me by Katy Perry
4. National Anthem by Lana Del Rey
5. Free by Twin Atlantic

Surprisingly, there is also a TV on the island! But, you can only pick one movie or TV show to watch for your time here, what would you choose?
House M.D, no doubt about it. I need my Hugh Laurie!

Before you were stranded you were carrying a book, what one book would you want to have on the island with you?

Definitely something by Stephen King, if I had to choose one it would be 11.22.63, it’s amazing.

Obviously, you’re not going to be left to starve. If you could only have 1 meal and 1 drink a day what would it be?

I think for my one drink it would be sicilian lemon juice or chocolate milkshakes from the cafe down the road, and for my meal it would either be spag bol or a Subway – turkey, double cheese, cucumber and ranch sauce on Italian, yum!

When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?
If I was being boring I’d say suncream, but otherwise it would be the Boots Coconut & Almond leave in conditioner.

Everywhere has WiFi these days, right? Well your island does! However you are limited to one blog and one YouTube channel – who would you choose?

If I could only have one blog it would probably be Hayley’s as she posts such a great variety and I love every single one. One YouTube channel is easy, it will always be CTFxC.
