Desert Island Essentials #5

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 Sam from

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

1. 10CC – Dreadlock Holiday
2. Bonnie Tyler – Total Eclipse of the Heart
3. Carley Rae Jepsen – Call me Maybe
4. Gotye – Somebody that I used to know
5. The Who – Baba O’Riley

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?

I watch a lot of TV so this is a tough one but everyone who knows me knows CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is my most favourite TV show ever so I don’t think I could ever pick anything else!

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

This is difficult because I have so many favourite books but I’d probably have to pick something by Virginia Andrews like “Flowers in the Attic” or “Heaven”but I know I could easily read then over and over and struggle to get bored.

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?

Give me a bottomless bowl of curly fries and I’ll be happy. With Fanta fruit twist to drink – I could drink that stuff by the litre.

When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?

Other than factor 50 sun cream to stop me from turning the same shade as my hair, I’d probably say a good shampoo since I always feel happier when my hair feels clean. Anything from the Aussie range will do!

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?

This one’s the hardest since I read so many amazing blogs! I’m going to choose Katy’s blog Little Winter though because it never fails to make me smile.
As for YouTube I don’t really watch that many channels however I do love Emily Hart’s “10 reasons why…” videos. So funny!
