who knows what goes on in her pretty little head..

The stunning Vix from Vintage Vixen recently posted this "I Love Your Blog" tag, and left it open to anyone who wants to play, so I thought I'd give them a go ;)

1. Why did you create the blog?
I have always liked to create outfits and experiment, and was advised to start photgraphing and recording various outfits, along with liking the idea of having a little outlet for anything i may wish to put down in words..

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
I don't think I have a specific type which I follow exclusively, I guess the list of followed blogs are mainly  fashion ones, but there are also some crafty ones in there too..ANd they all tend to be 'regular fashion' iykwim, rather than high-fashion types who spend thousands on clothes and post professional-looking photos..

3. Favourite makeup brand?
Anyone who knows me will know that I'm kinda hopeless when it comes to make-up, my make up bag is only filling up recently due to the deluge of Boots vouchers which everyone at work seems to save for me :D
So I guess it's No7 from Boots, almost everything I use is from their range, and the nail polish is great..
4. Favourite clothing brand?Can I adapt this, as I'm not that fussy when it comes to clothes, but shoes wise, my total kfavourite brand is Irregular Choice (obviously)..I have bought two more pairs this week - need to stop being tempted by ebay bargains!

5. Your indispensable makeup product?
Well, as I'm not exaclty a massive make-up fan, I guess the only thing I use with any frequency is boots no7 black eyeliner..I tend to wear it every day as I like to try and draw attention away from the fact that I generally get v little sleep and therefore have prominent bags under my eyes :(

6. Your favorite colour?
I think this changes fairly often for me, I don't really have a 'hard-and-fast' favourite colour..At the moment I'm really liking rich autumnal colours, like bottle green and rusty orange..

7. Your perfume?Dune, by Christian Dior

8. Your favourite film?
I'm not sure whether to go for the one which was my favourtie through growing up years, and say '10 things I hate about you', as that was one which I used to watch over and over again, or a more recent favourite in 'Goodfellas'..I do have a bit of thing for gangster films..(think that could just be my dad's fault!)

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I'd really like to visit Italy, as so many people tell me it's somewhere to see, as there are so many beautiful parts..That said, it's been so long since I have been on holiday that anywhere would be nice..

10. When are you at your happiest?
When I can relax that everything at work is done / dealt with, and can sit down at home / at a friend's house and chat over simple homemade dinner and some episodes of whatever I'm into at that point in time (currently CSI, or American Chopper!!) with some sewing..i tend to like to multi-task even when i'm relaxing..maybe I need to teach myself to unwind more often..

Please feel free to do this tag if you fancy it.. I'm hopeless at keeping track of who has and hasn't!


  1. Ahhh! What fabulous answers! As if I couldn't have guessed that IC was your favourite brand. I can't believe there's a style or colourway that you haven't got. I imagine your collection more of an archive than a wardrobe.
    Goodfellas is one of the best films ever! Great choice. The clothes were beautiful as Ray Liotta totally swoonsome.
    Have a great weekend, Char! xxx

  2. The Irregular Choice queen!
    I'm also a huge fan of Boot No 7, as good quality as some of the designer brands, but half the price (and the vouchers help too!)

  3. Loved reading your answers.

    Everyone always gives me their boots vouchers too, I had about 20 this time!

  4. I wish people gave me Boots vouchers! I've got none in this current promotion, but I did stock up on face wipes last time so I suppose that's fair enough. Love the nail varnishes too.

    And yay, a fellow 10 Things Fan :D
