Whilst I’m away cruisin’ the high seas, I’ve pinched this tag from the ever gorgeous Kerri. I loved getting to know her better through her answers, so thought I’d continue the train! If you want to get on board, please do, and send me a link to your post!
Without further ado, here are my answers.
If you could only…
Wear one outfit
Skinny jeans, a vest top and a warm jumper. I’m always, always cold. I generally prefer dresses – this is my current favourite – but given the cold factor, jeans will generally win.
Feeling very Sound of Music in Andorra.
Have one style icon
Style? What’s that?
Shop at one store
Does Amazon count?
Carry one handbag
A sensible backpack with lots of padding and space for a laptop. Bad back problems.
Use one skincare product
La Roche-Posay Toleriane Ultra for my poor dry skin. This is like, essential to life for me. If I were allowed to pick a nice to have, it would be the ARK Anti-ageing Skin Protector which is a SPF30 primer that fulfils my sunscreen requirements whilst giving a lovely, awake glow.
Wear one scent
It would be something from Jo Malone. My all time favourite is Pomegranate Noir, so I’d go for that. I would have to sell some organs to support my habit though. That stuff is expensive.
Indulge in one spa treatment
Mani-pedis. I’m too lazy / clumsy / inflexible to do my own.
Apply one lipstick colour
Probably Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. Longest product name ever but it manages to look completely different in different situations, so for that chameleon like ability it’s my choice.
Order one drink
Diet Coke. Actually, Coke Light (I swear it’s better). Here speaks a true addict.
Cafe vibes – Palma, Mallorca
Pick one flower
Hydrangeas, I think.
Apply one mascara
Benefit Roller Lash, although I’m not sure. I don’t think I’ve found my best ever mascara yet.
Do one workout
Swimming, if only it weren’t such a faff with the changing and the drying hair and whatnot. I can’t do weight bearing exercise and I don’t really bend, which rules out a fair few options, so I generally favour a good cross trainer session. Or a long walk, or something where you don’t really feel like you’re working out and there are nice views.
Read one author
Gerald Durrell. He’s been my favourite author ever since I was a child and even though I don’t read his books often any more, I can’t think of an author I’d rather read solely.
As close as I ever got to meeting my hero – a statue of Gerald Durrell at the wildlife park he founded in Jersey.
Live by one quote
Get busy living, or get busy dying. I think that’s probably my favourite film, too.
What about you?
P.S. I’m on a big boat somewhere in Alaska at the moment, so apologies if I’m slow to respond to comments
