Desert Island Essentials #8

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 Lauren from OhHay! Blogs.

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

Oh wow this is going to be hard! My iPod is full with music I adore but I suppose if I can only pick 5, I would pick:
All Time Low- Weightless
You Me At Six- Underdog
Mayday Parade- Jersey
We The Kings- Just Keep Breathing
Bastille- Pompeii 

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 think I would have to go with the classics of either F.R.I.E.N.D.S or Doctor Who. F.R.I.E.N.D.S would be my perfect choice for getting my laughing but Doctor Who is just awesome (and who can resist a bit of David Tennant action?). In the end I think I would go for Doctor Who as there is a lot more episodes than F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 

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

Hmm... Another tough choice. I think I would probably go with John Greens Looking for Alaska, but this could easily change when I finish reading the “to read” pile that is stacked a mile high on a cabinet in my room!

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 drink would be Fanta Fruit Twist, my ultimate favourite drink! Then my meal would be Fish & Chips (+ bread for chip butties please?!) as long as I could get some tomato ketchup!  

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

That would be my Collections 2000 concealer! It is a miracle worker and is really cheap as well. It’s brilliant at covering up any red patches I have from any blemishes or anything!

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?

My choice for YouTube channel isn’t very hard as I only really watch one religiously which is CTFxC (Internet Killed Television)!
My blogger would be ABeautifulMess because of the variety in their posts! I think my needs for wanting to read certain posts would be fulfilled by this one blog!

    1. Haha! I know right!? Love those two songs, they're the ones that got me into All Time Low and You Me At Six- not to mention the fact that they got me into punk/rock too!

  4. This is such a lovely idea for a blog series :)
    I also definitely agree Doctor Who would be a good TV choice, wouldn't mind being stuck on a desert island watching every episode myself really.
