Lisa's Questions

What are you doing right now?
Watching the Six Nations with one eye and writing this with the other. The joys of multi tasking. I do love my rugby and Wales won yesterday yay.

What is your beauty must have?
In case you haven't guessed by my pictures I am a bit of a eyeliner addict. Every since I was about 15 I haven't felt fully dressed unless I am rocking some eyeliner! Has to be waterproof because I always seem to be standing at the bus stop in the rain and only Alice Cooper can rock that smudged eyeliner look and get away with it.

What would be your dream holiday?
Dream holiday is a hard one to pick for me as lately I have been blessed with being able to go places I would never have dreamt of before.. I love America so I think a dream holiday for me would be with a bunch of my friends travelling across all of America learning about all the different places and eating lots of yummy food. That way I could hit up Vegas, New York and drop in on my homegirl in Portland.

What is your biggest fashion mistake?
I can hang my head in shame and say there have been many but I am glad I went trough them as at the time they were an expression of how I felt. Probably the most boring was when I lived in jeans and band tshirts.The baggy look did nothing for my chunky frame and made me too much of a boy.

Who would win in a fight Gandolf or Dumbledore?
I am going to say it and once it is out there it is never coming back. I can't stand Harry Potter it just is not for me. There you so its said and done don't judge me!  Lord of the rings however now that is some powerful stuff. So for me this is no competition Gandolf is the master of wizards and would kick Dumbledore's ass any day.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
When I was 19 I worked in a petrol station. The woman I was working with was attacked. She had her face bitten and was stabbed multiple times. Somehow I went into auto mode and stopped the attack (it was her boyfriend) reasoned with him, called the police, calmed customers and gave her first aid until the ambulance came. He handed himself into the police and the ambulance man said that the first aid I managed to do may have saved her life. When everything was over it suddenly hot me how scary a moment it was. This powered me on to believe in myself and want to work with women who are suffering domestic violence.

What piece of advice would you give your younger self?
Just relax and keep being you. Things will get awesome so hold in there. Stay creative, dream big and just be yourself. Don't worry if someone doesn't like you it is not the end of the world and you will grow to love everything you hate about yourself.

What would be the first thing you would grab in a fire?
Since my lovely cat Mr Theo Noir lives with my parents as I live in a flat he would have been the first. I guess my phone so I could call people. My book of memories from my Berlin trip with my Salma and would alert the neighbours so everyone gets out safe.

What is your go to shop for fashion finds?
I am a huge fan of a bargain and I love when I can get something cute to wear. So I would have to say I am a sucker for independent shops, eBay, vintage shops and of course eBay. Recently I have bought some lovely items from other bloggers.

What is the weirdest thing you have ever seen?
Having worked in the community for over 10 years I have seen many a weird thing that is for sure and nothing seems to phase me now. My family are a bit crazy in a good way and it has made me very open minded. Maybe the oddest thing I saw was when I went to a house party in Cornwall and they had put bin bags all over the walls. As creative as it was made me wonder how messy their house parties get.

What was the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought was some nail varnish and Hello Kitty ears I found in a bargain bin at boots. I told you I am a sucker for a bargain and I have a bit of a kitty ear addiction. Just too cute to pass up on.
