Desert Island Essentials #3

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, and this week it’s Char from

On your lovely little desert island you find an iPod, however it can only hold 5 songs – which five songs would you choose?

On Melancholy Hill – Gorillaz
I’ll Follow You In To The Dark – Death Cab For Cutie
Almost – Bowling For Soup
Star Girl – McFly

Don’t You Want Me – The Human League

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?

How I met your mother would have to be it, or maybe peep show!! I can’t choose 🙁 maybe the desert island government will be nice and fly in a hot guy to wire up another show? 😉
If I really had to choose though, I guess I’d spend my time watching How I Met Your Mother from start to finish and wishing I was Robyn 🙁

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

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, it’s a beautiful book and has me in tears every time. I was going to say the shining, or Bag Of Bones, but I don’t want to be shitting myself on a desert island…

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’d pretty much live off Diet Coke my whole time there. My faveeeee. I could totally catch some fish for my dinner!

When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?
A moisturising 50SPF sunscream so I don’t burn and look like a lobster.

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?

The first blog to spring to mind was Water Painted Dreams. I’d rather have Hayley all over my screen than some big top blogger. Her ‘what makes me happy’ posts would be more than enough to keep me satisfied!
I’m not really sure about a YouTube channel, I hardly watch them anymore. I’d probably go with charlieissocoollike.
