Q and A / The Liebster award - Lifestyle post

Hey Guys,

I haven't done one of these posts in what feels like years. The various blogger nominated award posts were everywhere back in 2013/ 2014 and I have probably answered so many already but I have been tagged in one recently by Gem from My SweetAnxiety.

If you could live in any fantasy world, which would it be?
I'm not into fantasy as a genre when it comes to books and film which is why I can't think of any I'd actually like to live in, I'd love to spend time in Tim Burton esque world although I'm not sure about living there for ever. 

You get to have a meal with 5 people, dead or alive, who are they?
This is actually so hard because there is so many for so many different reasons and ideally you'd want them to get along well otherwise the dinner would be a bit awkward. I'm picking Jeremy Corbyn because he is one of the main reasons I've been so politically active recently and his determination to stick with his beliefs will always inspire me, David Bowie for obvious reasons. Now lets get some ladies on here with Margret Atwood obviously because of the handmaids tale but in general she is such an intelligent interesting lady with so much to say about our society. Next I'm going to pick Megan Ellaby as I'd need someone there from the fashion and blogging industry to pick their brains and she is just my ultimate fave. Finally Audrey Hepburn she is my favourite old Hollywood actress and did so much for charity. However I could probably change my mind and add a load more people to this list.

Which is your favourite animal to see in the zoo?
I haven't been to a zoo since my year 8 school trip to one and they make me a bit uncomfortable but the animal I'd love to visit most is Fawns and deer. I remember visiting a manor house with fawns in the grounds and it was the best.

If you could play any instrument, which would it be?
I did use to play guitar in primary school  and loved it but wasn't very motivated as you start off learning classical guitar so I'd love to be able to play electric guitar properly.

What is your favourite season, and why?
I change my mind on this as each season comes a goes but it would have to be winter, but the good winter days when its clear skies, sun is out but its super cold and could snow at any moment.

If you could spend a night out with any celeb, who would it be?
I love this question and its something my best mates and I comment on all the time whenever we see someone cool on tele we say 'god they'd be a right laugh on a night out' or something i now realise is cringe but now I have come to answer this I can't think of one stand out person in particular but I have for sure said that anyone from Jeremy Corbyn to Joe Lycett (one of my favourite comedians) would be a firm choice.

What are your favourite things to do for self-care?
My most regular form of self care is just getting in bed watching one of the many old crappy TV shows and films that I have seen countless times with lots of snacks usually pizza then cadbury chocolate.

What is your pet hate?
I honestly am struggling to think of things I don't tend to get annoyed with small things (even being at uni and living with strangers twice not much annoys me) obviously big issues on a more political level I can rant and get annoyed for days. One pet hate though is just general rudeness one thing that drives me nuts is when someone bumps into you in the street I awkwardly mumble 'sorry' but the person who is technically at fault never says sorry. This obviously carries on further than politeness with strangers in town I just hate when people can;t admit they were wrong, learn from something and apologise.

What snacks do you choose in the cinema?
Cinema food is so expensive so if I don't have a bag of chocolate in my handbag for the film I get the kids offer of a small coke and small toffee popcorn which is enough and costs less than an adults small popcorn.

What do you eat for breakfast?
I don't tend to eat breakfast or eat in the mornings at all but I do love brunch foods like smoked salmon and poached eggs on toast and of course avocado and eggs on toast.

If you won £1,000,000,000 on the lottery, what is the first thing that you would buy?
I'm a student working two retail jobs and even since having those jobs I feel like I never have money. I will soon be paying two months rent on the most expensive house at uni so far before my student loan comes so I am always thinking about what I would rather be spending my money on but its never anything extravagant. At the moment I am looking into putting more money into my blog through hiring a photographer and a new web design (if you have any recommendations in this are please leave a comment or tweet me @afashionoddity) but if I knew I had £1 million sorted for all the practical stuff one thing I'd buy first to treat myself is a pair of Saint Laurent rock ayers boots, I'm not hugely into labels or designer clothes but I am obsessed with these at the moment.

The 11 questions I'd like to ask are...

What job did you want to do when you were a child?
If you could get on any plane right now, where would you travel?
What's one goal you aim to achieve by the end of this year?
What's your favourite thing about blogging?
Name one blogger who inspires you and why
If you could only shop at one fashion brand forever, where would you shop?
What's one film you could always watch repeatedly?
Name one fictional character you'd love to hang out with?
If you could see any artist (dead or alive) in concert, who would you see?
Whats your dream first date?
Celebrity crush wise who would that said dream date be with?

As I usually do with this Q and A blogger tag posts I nominate anyone reading this who whats to do it but I also nominate Charlie from High street beauty junkie, Chloe, and Chloe Harriets. xo Let me know in the comments or twitter (@afashionoddity) if you do go ahead and answer the questions.

Hope you enjoyed my answers and getting to know me a lil better.

Love Charlotte
