Gemma's Questions

1. What is one thing in your make up bag that you couldn't live without?
Concealer, it can transform your areas of your face from dull to light. Goodbye dark eye shadows.

Billy Joel- Vienna, it has a personal meaning to me.

3. Which celebrity do you look up to the most?
I've never really looked up to celebrities, I admire those who have worked hard to be where they are. Those who donate money to charity who do it for good reasons and not just to publicise themselves.

4. Busy City or Quiet Country?
In the long term it has to be the quiet countryside.

5. Most Embarrassing Moment?
In primary school when I was about 7, finishing a school play at a church in front of the parents and then going backstage and weeing myself from fright all over this stone plaque engraved in the floor with all the other children and teachers just staring at me in shock horror. It was a horrible accident that I will never forget.

6. What's one band/musician you'd recommend to your readers?
The Black Keys

7. What made you start blogging?
Curiosity, I had read blogs since I was 18 and it suddenly dawned on me well why am I any different? Why don't I just give it a try. I think the success of other bloggers can be a little daunting but its also incredible. Just feeling confident with what you write and having a passion is something I believe is incredibly important. Blog about what ever you want, just stay true to yourself and be honest!

8. Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter?
Autumn, its beautiful and I love wearing jumpers.

9.Tell me one thing from your bucket list
Living in London, its something I have always wanted to do and Ill only regret it if I don't give it a shot.

10. If you won the lotto, what would be the first thing you'd do?
Go and do some more travelling, America would be my first stop.

11. Lastly, why is a raven like a writing desk?
No idea, I wish the Mad Hatter had just known the answer.
