Vogue’s 73 Questions

I recently came across Vogue’s 73 questions that they ask celebs.

So I’m having a go too, here we go …

1. What’s your favourite movie?

Whenever I’m asked this question, the intellect in me always says ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ – what a powerful film. But if I’m totally honest with no fear of being judged, it would definitely be ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’- my sister and I know the lines off by heart, it’s hilarious,  every time.

2. Favourite movie in the past five years?

Now you can really get a sense of my humour, definitely ‘The Inbetweeners’ movie!

3. Favourite Hitchcock film?

Knowing my above taste in films, you’d probably be right in saying that Hitchcock is not really my thing. But I used to do film studies and one of our topics was Hitchcock. ‘Vertigo’ was my favourite.

4. A book you plan on reading?

Caroline Flack’s Autobiography

5. A book that you read in school that positively shaped you?

I remember we read, ‘Oranges are not the only Fruit’, it really moved me.

6. Favourite TV show that’s currently on?

I only watch sport or reality tv, so my favourite at the moment is the X-Factor.

7. On a scale of one to ten how excited are you about life right now?

A definite 9. I’m absolutely loving being the one who takes my son to school. I’m loving being the one who spends all day with my daughter. It’s perfect. The only thing that’s stopping my 9 from being a 10, is that we haven’t booked a holiday to look forward to yet.

8. iPhone or Android?


9. Twitter or Instagram?

OOh, tough one. Twitter is better for my blog but I love IG as it allows you to really see inside people’s lives. I’ve made lots of lovely friends through IG too. So probably Instagram.
