- Lauren Waller Style           - Little Sash

Here are our answers to Lica's Questions!

1. What was your favourite cartoon from your childhood?
     Armani: This is a really difficult one, but i'd have to say Ed, Ed and Eddy! I loved all the old Cartoon Network cartoons! So difficult to choose just one of them!
      Leigh: I loved cartoons when I was younger, Cartoon Network was the bomb! Where do i start!? Ok it's got to be Totally Spies, The Powerpuff girls or The Cramp Twins! Ok thats three but eh..

2. If you could be a DJ, what would your DJ name be?
     Armani: Literally don't even know how to answer this one! DJ Armani sounds a bit rubbish doesn't it? haha!
     Leigh: DJ McRizzle maybe

3. What's your favourite kind of tea?
     Armani: I really like just traditional tea, but if I had to pick a flavoured tea it'd be green tea with peppermint, it's so nice and really good for you!
     Leigh: I LOOOOVEE TEA, english breakfast tea with three sugars. It's the only way!

4. What's your favourite holiday and why?
     Armani: If by favourite holiday this means place to go away to, i'd definitely say London! It's not very relaxing just because there is millions of people and no beach, but I just love it there! You can get from one side of the city to the other in no time due to the underground which I never stop talking about and it's the absolute best for shopping!
     Leigh: My favourite holiday is anywhere hot, with a beach, theres nothing like soaking up the Vitamin D and a sun tan is always desireable! On the other hand though, I'm a big lover of exploring and going to different places whilst on holiday. A beach holiday is always good but theres nothing better than finding the hidden treasures and experiencing the culture of a different country. So for that reason at the minute I would say Paris.

5. If you could bring only 3 things to an isolated island, what would they be? (assuming there is running water, shelter, food the essentials)
     Armani: I'm going to cheat with this one and assume wifi is an essential (come on people it definitely is!) and so I'd bring my laptop so I could still blog, watch tv and listen to music; my bed, because it's my favourite place in the world and then the teddy my grandma bought me when I was 8. Yep, i'd even leave makeup behind for him!
     Leigh: This is a tricky one for me, I would bring my bed, magazines and probably one of my disney teddies!

6. What is your staple beauty product?
     Armani: This is such a difficult question, but my staple beauty product would have to be moisturizer. I grew up watching my grandma putting Nivea on every single day, and it always reminds me of her, so we definitely share our love for it!
     Leigh: I think for me this would probably either be my foundation or eyeliner! My friends never understand why I constantly put more eyeliner on throughout the day. Actually no...My simple moisturiser, it works a dream, possibly all three items!? I just can't decide :( I'm such an indecisive person, thats what you get when you're a pisces

7. What's your favourite flavour of ice cream?
     Armani: Easiest question; its without a doubt mint chocolate chip and has been since I was a kid!
     Leigh: I don't actually like ice cream that much or other sweet things, but if I'd have to chose one it would be strawberry.

8. What flower/plant do you feel best represents you?
     Armani: I love blossom so I'd like to think blossom represents me!
     Leigh: Definitely a Lili, Lilies are my favourite flower and I'd have to be a pink one.

9. Which Spice Girl would you be? (Scary, Ginger, Baby, Sporty or Posh)
     Armani: My favourite Spice Girl was Baby, I even used to buy a particular lollipop because I saw her eat one once, so i'd definitely be Baby!
     Leigh: Easy! It's gotta be Posh.

10. What is your favourite music video? Link it below.
     Armani: I don't really have one now, but this was my favourite when I was a kid

     Leigh: I don't actually have a favourite music video but at the minute I would say I'm loving Chris Browns new video for Auntmn Leaves

11. When you go to the movies are you a popcorn or candy person?
     Armani: I don't go to the movies all that often, but when I do, that cinema popcorn can't be beaten! 
     Leigh: I love films and going to the cinema, I'd have to say that I'm a popcorn kinda girl.

Here's our questions for you guys!:
1. What is your favourite sweet/candy?
2. Why did you start blogging?
3. Who is your biggest inspiration?
4. Favourite Disney character?
5. Where would you like to visit?
