Desert Island Essentials #17

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 Courtney from Wonders of Dreams.

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


1.Somebody to love – Queen
2. Three little birds – Bob Marley
3. Hakuna Mutata – Lion King
4. That girl – Mcfly

5. The Letter – Xavier Rudd


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?


Definitely Friends! It never gets old and one movie would get super boring!


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



One book! Can’t I sneak a series or several?! I’d have to say either one of Karen Rose or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, probably Harry Potter because I’d creep myself reading Karen Rose on a giant 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?


Steak, chips and beans, all day long, with a nice refreshing glass of Dr Pepper!


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



Definitely a  Concealer – cant live with out it here let alone on an island. I probably should have said something practical like shampoo or sun cream, oh well I’ll make my own… Somehow!


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?

Oh god I read so many blogs urmm, Sweet Monday, not only do I love her blog but she has recipes and DIY’s and would definitely help me survive on an island!? My YouTube channel would definitely be Helen Melon Lady!
