1- favourite perfume? Issey Miyake's A Scent

2- favourite make up product? My Clarins Rouge Appeal lipstick in copper glaze

3- favourite casual outfit? Khaki skinny cords, denim shirt with rolled up sleeves and a stripey l/s top underneath with my hi tops.

4- favourite going out/evening outfit? A gorgeous warehouse shift dress with black patent heels. I rarely go out though.

1 - Tom Ford Tuscan Leather but I just can't afford stupid prices like that for perfume. Currently I have the Clarins red one (present), CK Eternity Moment (present) and Westwood Cheeky Alice.

2 - Urban Decay Naked One

3 - skinnies, biker jacket, long chiffony top and ankle boots. This changes but it's what I wore yesterday!

4 - depends where. Casual = skinnies, heels and a silk top / smarter = opaques, Westwood jersey dress and platforms.

1 - Marc Jacobs Dot
2 - Benefit posy tint

My clothes are all a bit boring! Live in skinny jeans, boots of varying descrptions, long sleeves tees, boyfriend cardies and big scarves! I might swap in heels or a jersey blazer for a night out but nearly always wear jeans! We only tend to go to the pub these days so I only have dresses for weddings/Christenings! I'm doing lots of braiding in my hair though.

1. Jo Malone's orange blossom. Passed on to me from a friend who didn't like it.
2. Body Shop moisture foundation. The palest shade. This is a lovely product, cheap, creamy, looks natural and lasts all day.
3. Straight, dark blue jeans tucked into flat black nubuck boots (Clarkes). Long jumper.
4. Black leggings, skater dress with 3/4 length sleeves, black boots. Usually no jewellery but I am coveting the Alex Munroe silver bee necklace.

1 Shalimar for the night and Lolita Lempicka original for the day.

2 Rimmel Exaggerate eyeliner. I have had a pot of this in my bag for the last thirteen years. Not the same pot obviously! It's £5.99 and it shits on all other eyeliners.

3 Tight black trousers and tight black long sleeved top with low neckline. I enjoy a good jumper, preferably cropped and with some lace or sequins or something. Outdoors, I have a black coat with a big Scottish Widows hood. I also like silly animal hats and I don't care what Hadley Freeman has to say about it.

4 Anything tight, black and slightly ridiculous. I AM Batman.

1.Jimmy Choo EDP,
2.Rimmel Apocolips in Apocolyptic,
3.High waisted jeans, Betty Bee invasion of the killer curves t shirt, leopard print converse and bandana.
4.Black and leopard print wiggle dress, black suedette courts with leopard print heels, leopard print hair flower.
