Desert Island Essentials #22

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 best uni pal Eilidh who has a blog called Velvet Winter.

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

Ah it’s hard to just choose 5! But the songs I think of straight away are:
Roar- Katy Perry
The Power of Love- Gabrielle Aplin
Just Give Me a Reason- P!nk feat. Nate Ruess 
A Thousand Years- Christina Perri
Shoop Shoop song- Cher
I could listen to all of them over and over!

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 the Vampire Diaries! At the end of every season I end up watching the older episodes all over again. Anyway I don’t think anyone could get bored of seeing Paul Wesley or Ian Somerhalder on their TV screens…

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

I have to admit I don’t read anything except magazines but I really have the urge to read the rest of the Hunger Games sequels. I hate not knowing what’s going to happen next! So I would probably take the book that comes after Catching Fire.

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 absolutely love Quorn Spaghetti Bolognese, I literally eat it night after night. My drink of choice would definitely be summer fruits Oasis, that stuff is amazing.

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

I think it would be lip balm. I constantly use it whether it’s before doing makeup in the morning or just taking it out of my handbag during the day. I’d hate to think of what my lips would be like without it!

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 this is hard! For the blog it would have to be Fashion Rocks My Socks, also known as Rhiannon Ashlee. I love her style and I trust her views on products. I’ve been loving watching Beauty Crush on YouTube recently, I would love to have all of her clothes!
