Desert Island Essentials #23

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 Sally from Queenie and the Dew.

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

For moments of contemplation: Comptine d’un Autre Ete from the Amelie soundtrack
For angry moments: Heartbeat by Childish Gambino
For foot-tapping moments: Garden by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs
For gazing out at the sunset moments: Such Great Heights by Iron and Wine
For getting stuff done moments: Something Good Can Work by Tourist History

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?

Without a doubt it would be Breaking Bad. I would be utterly absorbed in the plot and completely distracted from the sharks circling my little island!

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

For purely educational reasons it would have to be Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. I’d like to stomp around my island saying things like ‘swashbucklin’, ‘me hearties’, ‘blackguard’ and ‘yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!’

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’m not sure there’s anything I wouldn’t get sick off after a while! I’d have to go for a beef casserole with plenty of veggies and potatoes. For a drink I’d settle with Ribena 🙂

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

Probably a really nice face moisturiser to keep dry skin at bay!

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?

Blog-wise I’d want something very versatile, so I’d choose Buzzfeed (is that technically a blog?) for endless entertainment and mind stimulation.

My You Tube channel would be Carrie from It’s Way Past My Bed Time. She is absolutely hilarious and bound to cheer me up on the duller days!
