Hello everyone! I asked you all to ask me questions for a Q&A post as part of my 750 follower giveaway and today I'm going to be answering them all. I really wasn't expecting this many questions so bear with me, there's a lot. I really enjoyed writing this post though and I hope you enjoy reading it to get to know me better.

Mia asked: You're meeting Ryan Gosling and you can only wear three beauty products to impress, which are they?

That's a toughie! Probably liquid eyeliner in a cat eye flick, red lipstick and then a really sexy perfume. If I was having a bad skin week I might be tempted to swap the lipstick for concealer.

Hayley asked: If you could live inside a book, what book would it be and why?

Hands town it would have to be a Harry Potter novel. Probably Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone because I think it would be great to discover the magic of Hogwarts along with the trio.

Sylvia asked: I know you live quite near Edinburgh, but have you ever thought about moving there? Or if anything was possible, where would you want to move in the world?

Yes! I really want to live in Edinburgh. My first choice uni will be the University of Edinburgh. Student housing is so expensive and because I'm so close I can't really justify moving out for first year. Ideally I would like to move out and into Edinburgh in my second or third year of uni. If I could move to anywhere in the world it would probably be either somewhere in the Netherlands or the USA.

Kathryn asked: What is your signature scent?

I wouldn't say I really have one! My top 3 perfumes are Lush's Karma, Beyonce's Heat and Marc Jacob's Lola. 

Alice Rose asked: What's your favourite lipstick shade and brand?

I really like red lips although I'm starting to really like nude lips. I really like Revlon lipsticks for 'drugstore' and MAC for a bit more high end.

Kia asked: Highstreet or high end make up?

I definitely own more highstreet make up. High end make up is nice but I can't really justify spending that much money on make up when there are things that are just as good at like half the price.

Sheen asked: What's your go to hairstyle?

HAHAHAHA. I don't have one. I am so, so bad at styling my hair. I'm growing out my fringe so I clip it back everyday but that's it. Sometimes I even brush my hair too ;)!

Sarah asked: If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?

Russia! The history is so fascinating and the architecture is beautiful.

Amie asked: What's your favourite make up brand and why? / Thais asked: Wat's your favourite brand?

I really like Sleek because their eyeshadow palettes are amazing and everything is very reasonably priced.

Amy asked: If you could only buy from one make up brand for the rest of your life which one would it be?

Probably Urban Decay, if I'm going to buy from only one brand then I deserve a little bit of luxury.

Honey asked: What is your favourite summer nail polish?

Beach Party by Model's Own.

Stacie asked: What is your favourite book of all time?

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.

Juyey asked: If you could be any character in any book who would you be?

Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. I really admire her intelligence and bravery.

Hannah asked: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

As I said, the Netherlands or the USA. The Netherlands seems like a nice place to live as everything is so laid back. And the USA is just really exciting.

Molly asked: What is your must have mascara?

I don't have one! I wear glasses and I find that my eyelashes don't really get noticed that much because of it so I just wear whatever. I like No7 mascaras and Seventeen mascaras but none really stand out.

Elle asked: What's your job like?

It has it's good parts and it's bad parts I guess. I like catching fish(I'm quite good at it), feeding fish and talking to customers. I also really like that it gives me the opportunity to work with fish that I don't have the tank space to accommodate. But as you can imagine, it's not the nicest smelling place to work. Cleaning tanks takes a while and it's quite boring. Also some customers will ask for specific fish which sometimes makes it reall hard to catch then and it annoys me. And don't even get me started on the people that bring back fish to us in Pets At Home bags. But overall I like my job. The people I work with are great and the regular customers are really good people, they make it worth it.

Keira asked: If you could only wear one make up product for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Liquid eyeliner! It's became a bit of a signature thing for me.

Beth asked: If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

Probably some sort of stir fry. They're tasty but still kind of healthy.

Lauren asked: If you could only listen to one band for the rest of your life who would it be?

Either My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds To Mars, Del Amitri or Bowling For Soup.

Lorna asked: What item of make up could you not live without and why?

Liquid eyeliner. I wear it almost everyday and it's just kind of became my 'thing' I guess.

Charlotte asked: What is your dream job?

I would like to do some really awesome science research for a few years in a foreign country. Maybe work at somewhere like CERN. Then when I'm like 40 or something I'd like to be a high school teacher when I have all the cool stories to tell.

Natalie asked: If your house was on fire and you could only save one item what would it be and why?

He's not really an item but definitely my dog. I can't stand the thought of him trapped in a burning house. He's 100% irreplaceable. I'd be gutted if I lost my laptop or my camera or the teddy bear I had as a child etc. but at the end of the day they're pretty superficial in comparison. Plus I could not carry my fish tank out the house. It weighs more than I do when it's empty. I like to believe the fish would be ok because of the water.

Georgia asked: If you could relive any era in history what would it be?

I would love to go to a Great Gatsby-esque party but I wouldn't like to like in any other time other than the present. Always go forwards, not backwards.

Emily asked: What inspired you to start your blog?

Reading other blogs and watching beauty videos on YouTube!

Iman asked: How would you advise other bloggers to gather a following of loyal subs to interact with?

Keep an eye on who comments on your posts and you'll soon recognise the regulars, go onto their blogs and leave comments and follow them on Twitter etc. Have some consistency with your posts. Try not to blog every day for a month and then not blog again for another month etc. Also the #bbloggers hashtag on twitter is a great way to get yourself out there.

Naomi asked: Lyrics that mean the most to you?

To be honest I don't really know. I've not been listening to music a lot recently. Probably something from a Jill Jackson or MCR song.

Charlotte asked: If you could be successful in at any career which career would you choose?

Scientific research.

Ashfa asked: What was your favourite book as a kid?

As a kid I really liked the Harry Potter series and the Series Of Unfortunate Events series.

Carla asked: What's the best holiday you've been on?

Either the last time I went to Lanzarote(October 2012) or one of my holidays with my grandparents to the Isle Of Arran.

Fullafizzy asked: What was the last book you read?

I'm scheduling this post so I don't know what it will be but at the moment I'm working through the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness. I'm also reading a bit of Memoirs Of A Geisha by Arthur Golden on the side but I'm struggling to get into it. If you want to keep up with what I'm reading then you can add me as a friend on GoodReads.

Faria asked: If you had to choose a colour to describe yourself , what colour would you be?

Bright green!

Rachel and Louise asked: What's your favourite Lush product? 

Cupcake face mask or the caca rouge henna.
