dreaming in your living room

I was tagged at the beginning of december by amaris of *Find Beauty In Everything. to answer the same fifteen questions she did, so here you go my pretties.

1. What is your dream job?
Gahhh, you must know by now, surely; I want to be a crime scene investigator; I study forensic science and crime scene investigation at university and i bloody love it. Be assured, if there is something sciencey on TV, my cheeks and the couch will be well and truly acquainted. Geek? I think so.

2. What is your favourite fragrance for winter?
I hate change. I find what works for me and i stick to it like hot jam. I've always used Very irresistible by Givenchy, literally, i've never strayed. But last christmas my mother duck bought me Lola by Marc Jacobs and it's fit, i've been converted, but i still mosey back to Very irresisteble in the winter because i've worn it for so long, it reminds me of a simpler time, which makes me feel all christmassy.

3. How do you take your tea/coffee?
Two words; gingerbread latte. Okay okay, i know that's a christmas thing, but my gosh it's like a hug for my tongue. Usually i take my coffee ridiculously strong, in a flask (i have to sip it piping hot), with no sugar and lots of milk. My tea? In a cutesy pants, familiar mug with hardly any milk and no sugar, i'm really weird when it comes to drinks.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
I'm not so much with the beauty, i literally only started wearing makeup when i was nineteen, and i still don't really like wearing it now. I do believe that makeup should not be worn for bed, only if i'm too drunk to physically identify a face wipe will i break my rule, even then i feel guilty. I think it's because once i heard, i can't remember where, if you go to bed with your makeup on, it ages your skin by ten days, it maybe a wives tale but it freaks me out *shivers*

5. If you had an all-expenses paid vacation anywhere, where would you go?

Urrrrm, let me think about that, AS I TYPE NEW YORK. I would like to venture to Paris though, that was one of the only places i didn't go during my flail in Europe, we didn't really have the time or the money. Or maybe Australia, or no wait, Vegas! What can i say, i'm a total traveller, always will be and i'd love to wake up in a different place every morning. 

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you three wishes, what would they be?
There are things i'd wish for that are totally unentertaining (one which is totally obvious, and you'll know if you know me, or you've read my blog for some time), which i shalln't bore you with, so i'll give you my three superficial wishes. 1) Infinite  money 2) To be very successful 3) To see the whole world.

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
This is so hard. I really can't pick. Okay, dessert food, chocolate cake all the way.

8. If you were Hello Kitty, what colour hairbow would you wear?
I'm not into Hello Kitty, but my favourite colour is green, so i'll go with green.

9. What is your biggest make-up pet peeve?
Fake eyelashes. I know a lot of people wear them, but i actually can't stand them, i think they look awful. I mean if they were natural eyelashes, they'd be stunning, but whenever i see someone wearing them i can immediately tell and i just think "nice false eyelashes". And girls are just going too OTT with them, like feathers (what the fuck?) and coloured ones (green, what the fuck?), seriously then they moan about all of their natural ones have fallen out and they can't go au natural any more - NO SHIT - It's probably because you've been gluing bits of plastic to your eyelids.

10. If you could wear only one piece of jewellery for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My belly bar or my tongue bar, whenever i take them out i feel really weird, my tummy looks so strange and i have a lisp. It's not good.

11. What one talent do you wish you had?
I wish i could be 'arty'. I see all the time on the blogosphere, people who can photograph wonderfully (Gem, Dottie) or draw beautifully and some who make their own clothes. I wish i could do that.

12. Which product will you continue to purchase?
Rub Your Nose In It by Soap&Glory.

13. If you could look into the future, would you? And what would you want to know?
No, i like surprises. If i know my future is pretty shitty, then it'll ruin my life, whereas if i know my life is a success i wont have anything to wish for.

14. Who is your biggest celebrity crush? Include pictures :)
Adam Brody. He's actually so fit i want to cry/sell my future children to sit on him. I know he may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's my cup, mug, flask, bucket, lake of tea. We'll be together one day, he'll find me, you'll see.

15. What made you start a blog?
I needed an outlet for my thoughts. 2010 had been a rough year and i'm not really one for talking about how i feel, so i guess voicing my feelings somewhat anonymously, really takes a load off. Plus i've made quite a few blog chums, who i'm really glad i've met, who i speak to on a daily basis and who make me smile all the time. Starting 'Voodle' is one of the best things i've ever done.

Here are five little beauties who i want to know more about:
Gorgeous red-head, Nadine, of Bimbobeautiful.
Burn the Blonde's mummy, Sarah, our little fittie.
London beauty, Purdey, of Kittenish Behaviour.
Gert lush Emily who gives us Pookie Loves...
A blogger bez, Gem, From Gem With Love.

If you want. No pressure. *glares*

  1. Hahaha I actually LOL'd a lot reading this, ADAM BRODY IS MINE so fook off *does a pose from that nintendo game she can't remember, but Kylie was in the film with plaits....Streetfighter!!! That's it) I'm going to New York next year :) I went to Paris when I was like 12 and I thought it was shit, but I was 12, I'd prob like it now, although I've been told the French are so very rude. I can do this, I'll do it, I'll do it today if you want!! Stop pressuring meeeeeeeeee. Love ya xxxx

  2. You should TOTALLY come to Australia.

  3. oh maann adam brody *salivates*. look at his lips in that picture! HELLLO.
    i chuckled all the way through this. because i haven't been following you for long, i totes didn't know you studied forensic science and csi! omfg. you have got my dream life. i am the biggest crime geek EVER (except for perhaps you, lol). i don't do rom-coms, i read books non-fictional books about gangs/drugs/murder. i have never missed a crimewatch.
    it is so exciting to think you can STUDY that. uber jel.
    also - i'm SOO with you on fake lashes... ugh, the first and last time i ever used them was new year 2010... i ended up with no eye make-up left (severe runny eyes) and the lashes from my left eye stuck to my fringe. awful.

  4. Mmm Adam Brody, nice choice!
    Gosh I wanted to be a crime scene investigator too! (especially watching CSI etc a few years back) but sadly I am crap at science. xx

  5. Ahhh I love Adam Brody! He's gorgeous.
    Agree with the false eyelashes too, don't mind the more natural ones on other people but I just can't be bothered to put them on! xx

  6. totally agree with you on Adam Brody he is so hot!

  7. Hahaha the stuff about false eyelashes made me laugh!!!! Considering your so into the forensic sciencey stuff I assume you've seen Dexter? If not it would defo be your cup of tea! x

  8. I love Adam Brody! <33
    btw, I'm moved to here

    xoxo <33

  9. Loving your answers! I know feel the need for lots of chocolate cake! Paris is amazing you should definitely visit, I'm still so jealous of your trip to New York next summer and I'm taking you up on your offer of cocktails and cupcakes in fancy outfits ;).
    I'm slighty scared of your "no pressure glare" so I'm getting on this right away ;)I'll be reading everyone elses answers with interest too x

    Kittenish Behaviour Blog

  10. Love this post! wow i never knew you did forensic science! i wish i was clever enough to do something like that. I was tempted to get my tongue pierced but i think my mum would shoot me. but i defiantly want my belly done! I have a little sample bottle of that givenchy perfume and i defiantly want to get the real one it's SO SO nice xo

  11. Nice post, I'm so nosy so always love when bloggers do these :) Totally agree on the false eyelashes/gingerbread lattes/Adam Brody front too. Sally x

  12. I definitely agree on so many of these fronts! Apart from my last gingerbread latte from Costa was so badly made it's really put me off them! It was foul, and usually I love them, so I have no idea what kind of idiot barista served me.


  13. Haha thanks for tagging me on your gert lush post! And ohmygosh, we have the same taste...ADAM BRODY <3 I used to be obsessed with Seth and The OC, and me any my boyf are currently working our way through the boxsets! I'd take The OC over Gossip Girl anyday!

    Oh, and defs dessert food. You've got me thinking about cake now. YUUUUM xx

  14. LET'S GO TO PARIS. seriously, what are you doing over easter?

    thanks for the lovely shout out, i bloody wish I could write like you I gotta say. sooooo I've been M.I.A. pretty much all week but have missed your voodles!!!

    fake eyelashes make me think of hookers, but I think I'm just secretly jealous because I can't apply them without stabbing myself in the eye with glue.

    & I agree with Pookie...The OC is mucho better than gossip girl. seth cohen makes me swooon.


  15. tag me, I want to do this haha

    thanks for your tweet....I haven't figured out twittwootwitter yet haha. love you lots like jelly tots x

  16. Very Irresistible is actually one of my favorites, too. I'd never really considered as a winter scent until I read this. I guess it really carries that weight that winter scents do. I laughed at your false eyelash rant!

  17. I hate false eyelashes too! Especially when I see them hanging off! I wouldnt have the energy for them, cant be good putting glue on your eye lids either what if it goes on your eyeball!!
    Adam Brody o yes!

  18. "he's my cup, mug, flask, bucket, lake of tea"

    Haha. That is a lush photo of Adam Brody!


I welcome comments on my blog as i do cake to my face.
