Desert Island Essentials #6

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 Jessica from http://www.cantshutitup.blogspot.co.uk/.

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 Cure – Lullaby
2. Joe Bonanmassa – Sloe Gin
3. Daughter – Medicine
4. Daft Punk – Doin’ it right
5. Prince – When doves cry

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?

Sex and the City, without a doubt! The series, though, not the films. I've watched each episode about
a hundred times, but it cheers me up like nothing else ever could!

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

The Diary of Anne Frank. I read it a few years ago and it left more of an impact than any book I've
ever read. It never fails to give me a sense of perspective and to remember how lucky I am.

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?

My meal would be jacket potato with tuna salad. It’s possibly not the most interesting answer, but it’s
my ultimate comfort meal. I remember having it as a child and for some reason it just makes me really

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

Sun cream. Boring, I know, but my body really doesn't like the sun! But if I could pick something a
bit less practical it would be my So Elixir Purple perfume by Yves Rocher.  Nothing makes me as
instantly happy as this does!

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?

I would choose Incurably Curious. Her posts are so well-written, funny and entertaining. The YouTube
channel I’d pick would probably be Lisa Eldridge simply because I love her.

If you want to be part of my Desert Island Essentials series e-mail me at coloursandcarouselsblog@gmail.com with the subject ‘Desert Island Essentials’ and I will add you to my list. <3


  1. thats such a cute tag. i love it. i would also go for sex and the city as a tv show. i love it soooo much.


    1. Glad you like it! I'm not a massive fan of SiTC but I don't think I've watched enough to really like it yet x

  2. Love these questions. I feel like you can find out a lot about a person from their choice of books and music!


  3. These are cool questions! Is your desert island questions the same ones from blogger to blogger? :)

  4. Hi Charlotte,

    I'm at the airport bored off my poor, sunburnt arse and I just found this post - it's just made my day! I'm so pleased you like my blog. :)

    Your comfort meal makes me sad though - chip shop chips all the way! x


It means so much to me that people take the time to comment, and I really appreciate each and every one. I try to reply to all of them but I am pretty forgetful, so if you have a burning question that you would like me to answer please drop me a tweet @colourscarousel or email me!
