Beauty VS Brains Tag

I've been meaning to do this post forever after seeing it on Helen's blog and I'm only just getting round to doing it now. Oh well, better late than never right?

1. What is your favourite book?

I hate this question! I'm going to go with my top 3 instead, I can't pick one. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, About A Boy by Nick Hornby and The Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger.

2. Which mottos do you like saying a lot?

Replace the fear of the unknown with curiosity.
The grass is greener where you water it.
You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
Be the kind of woman who, when her feet hit the floor in the morning, the devil says 'Oh no, she's up'.

3. Which do you prefer: English or maths?

Definitely maths. I've always found maths easier because there is always a concrete answer where as in English there is no wrong answer but it takes so long to get to.

4. Which do you prefer: science or art?

In school I prefer science but I do like to do arty stuff outside of school however I like being able to do my own thing with art and not have to stick to deadlines and design briefs.

5. Name 5 albums/artists that have changed your life.

30 Seconds To Mars- A few years ago I went to a meet up for 30stm fans where I met some of my current best friends. Not only do I owe them one for their great music but for their really awesome fan base.

My Chemical Romance - I started listening to them during my emo phase but I still love them. They'll always have a special place in my heart as I just love their music.

Bowling For Soup- were the first band that I saw live and it was an amazing experience. If you get the chance to see them live and you like their music then you should definitely go see them, they're so chatty and interactive with the crowd that your feel like they're your friends.

Jill Jackson- is the first artist of the 'folk' genre that I started listening to and her music has really changed my taste. I'm now at the conclusion that there is no better sound than someone that really knows their way around an acoustic guitar.

Paloma Faith- I think she's just an amazing role model because she never really seems to care what people think about her and I think that's a good way to see the world.

6. What were your favourite and least favourite subjects at school?

At the moment I'd probably say my favourite subjects are physics and chemistry and my least favourites were  CDT(craft and design technology) and home economics.

7. Who is your favourite celebrity with a brain?

Caitlin Moran, what a woman.

8. What is your nerdy secret?

I have a really good memory for rather insignificant things, like I can remember what most people I know were wearing when I met them and dates of when I saw movies at the cinema for the first time. Sometimes I pretend that I can't remember things like that because it can kind of freak people out.

9. Who are your favourite beauty/fashion gurus that you admire for more than their beauty/fashion sense?

Kathy and Rachel.

10. If you could study anything anywhere what would you study and where?

Pharmacology in Moscow.

11. If your blog wasn't about beauty/fashion what would it be about?

Baking, crafting and books.

12. Name something that you are obsessed with that other people would find nerdy.

Sub-atomic particles. Yup.

13. Name 5 people, excluding friends and family that inspire you.

Peter Benenson
John Green
Caitlin Moran
Paloma Faith
This boy in the year above me that done 6 highers and got band-1 As in all of them. He doesn't count as friends or family as i don't really know him.

14. Who is your intellectual soul mate?

I don't really get this question if I'm honest.

15. Who will you tag?

Everyone reading this!
