Desert Island Essentials #18

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 my blogging BFF Hayley from Water Painted Dreams.

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

Sunbeams and Custard Creams – Jill Jackson, Getaway  Driver – Jill Jackson, Hurricane – 30 Seconds To Mars, Bulletproof Heart – My Chemical Romance, Teenage Dirtbag – Wheatus.

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’d probably go with NCIS as it’s been my favourite tv show for a couple of years and the first tv show that I ‘got into’. There’s 11 seasons and counting so I’d have lots to watch. I’m not really a big fan of watching movies as I don’t really have the attention span for it.

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

I’d probably bring my 2 part box set of War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy because I think being stuck with it on a desert island is probably the only way  I’m ever going to get round to reading those books.

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?

Chinese food and irn bru. Mmmmmmmm.

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

I think pretty much everyone has been saying sun cream so lets take that as a given. Next I’d probably bring along a perfume or a deodorant so that I don’t get all smelly after sweating in the sun all day. Ew.

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?

If I were to choose one blog to read it would probably be The Londoner. Probably the first blog I ever read and Rosie updates it frequently so I wouldn’t get bored. And as a YouTube channel: Just Kiss My Frog. Another one that I’d been watching for ages! I love Leena’s attitude. Her videos are just so easy to watch.
