Desert Island Essentials #20

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 Leah from Painted Daisies.

On your lovely little desert island you find an iPod, however it can only hold 5 songs – which five songs would you choose?
Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues 
Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi
Avicii – You Make Me
Blink 182 – Wishing Well 
Katy Perry – Roar
I think that’s a nice combination of my music. 
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?
Oooh that is a hard one! I think I will go for Supernatural as it’s been a favourite of mine since school. There are tons of episodes too. Plus, I don’t think I could ever get bored of Jensen Ackles!
Before you were stranded you were carrying a book, what one book would you want to have on the island with you?
I must admit, I’m not a big reader (I’m not a bad person I swear). Anyway, I think I will go for Robinson Crusoe. I’ve never read it but I think it seems like an appropriate book don’t you?
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?
I’d have to go with a Cheese Toastie & Southern Fried chips…with a lake of Tomato Sauce. I then think I’d wash that down with some Diet Coke.
When stranded on your island what would your must have beauty essential be?
I would have to go with some hair straighteners…If there’s electricity, that means straighteners are okay doesn’t it? If not, I think a perfume would be a good call. Don’t want to be all stinky!
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 is probably the easiest question for me. I would therefore go for either of Lily Melrose’s blogs or her Youtube. She was the first blogger & Youtuber I started to religiously follow; I’ve followed her since her early Lookbook days. Plus she has a cute little kitten who looks just like mine.
